Fantasia, Fantasia, Fantasia

Recently, Fantasia, also dubbed as one of three homewreckers of the year, attempted to commit suicide. She overdosed on aspirins and sleep aids, although, this was said not to be life threatening.
Background info:

For those who don't know, Fantasia has/had been allegedly dating Antwaun Cook, a married man; although, Fantasia said she had believed they were separated already.
His wife, Paula Cook, didn't agree.
In the words of The YBF:
"These two were first spotted getting extra cozy at a club in Antwaun’s hometown of Charlotte, NC. Antwaun abruptly left his wife
the second week in September, and the next week Fanny had his name tattooed on her shoulder! *side eye* Fantasia then began missing shows for “The Color Purple” when Antwaun came into town. Fantasia claims she did not break up Antwaun’s home and that they are “just friends” but we beg to differ Fanny"

With all the media hubbabaloo and the lawsuit, Fantasia was at her last tether and attempted to committ suicide.

Yesterday, she went on "The Wendy Williams Show" and broke down: "At that time, I wasn't thinking about ANYBODY"

We've all heard the saying: "You can't help who you fall in love with", to a certain extent that is true.
Can Fantasia really be called a "a homewrecker" if the home wasn't broken to begin with? (According to the couple)
I don't feel that it would be right for me to judge Fantasia, but her suicide attempt was obviously a desperate cry for help. Her crying on the show,
showed that to a certain degree, Fanny is slowly realizing the implications of her actions.

In no way, do I condone suicide, because, personally, I feel suicide is never the right way out.
In life, we all need to learn how to take responsibility for our behaviour, think of others involved in our lives and take the ups and down "on the chin".
No one ever said it was gonna be easy.

  1. awww i actually fink fantasia is beautiful and such a great person, obviously i dnt kno anything about her but I'm saying, i'd marry her if given the chance

  2. She is a beautiful, great person and singer, but I just feel that she needs to rethink her life choices.

    We all saw her grow on American Idol, didn't think I'd ever be hearing a story like this about her...
