Reality show about Fantasia starts on VH1
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Fantasia Barrino talks about how she got sidetracked financially in the first episode of a VH1 reality series about the “American Idol” winner from North Carolina.
The show, “Fantasia for Real,” debuts at 10 p.m. Monday. The Charlotte Observer reported Monday that the 25-year-old singer acknowledges that her extended family of six can be a financial burden.
The 2004 “American Idol” winner had financial problems after moving from High Point to Charlotte – despite a successful autobiography, a made-for-TV movie, a Broadway role in “The Color Purple” and a platinum album.
The newspaper says liens were filed against her first home in Charlotte over unpaid homeowner association fees and creditors sued for her $240,000 Mercedes. Her second home was saved from auction after fees were paid on back taxes in 2009.
