Fantasia's VH1 reality show: I'm already saving space on my DVR!

Fantasiabarrino_lFollowing in the esteemed footsteps of Flavor Flav, Danny Bonaduce, and Brooke Hogan, former American Idol winner Fantasia will be getting her own VH1 reality series, according to The Hollywood Reporter. And, frankly, I cannot wait. As I write this blog, a signed poster from Fantasia, given to me by my wonderful colleague Nicholas Fonseca (check out Nicholas’ fantastic 2006 profile of Fantasia), hangs behind me. Now, I’ll admit her career has been erratic to say the least, but I absolutely loved her last album, especially the single "Hood Boy." And I root for her to make a comeback. Underdogs always make for great television so, VH1, you can count me in. As long as you don’t pair her with Brooke Hogan.

What do you think PopWatchers? Will you watch Fantasia’s reality series? Do you love "Hood Boy" as much as I do? Is that even possible?!

    Ew. No to both. It’s a tie between her and Taylor Hicks as worst Idol ever.

      Who are you to judge someone else’s as best or worst idol ever?

    Wow. A Fantasia post and Slezak’s nowhere in sight! I never thought I’d see the day. Actually, I never thought anyone else had this level of love for Fantasia. No, I won’t be watching Fantasia’s show, no, I don’t love “Hood Boy”, and frankly, I’m always surprised to hear people speak about her with such love and appreciation. I’m really not crapping on you, I honestly and truly don’t get it. Her voice makes me want to jam something sharp into my ears,and her look is laughable. Although, she looks halfway normal in the pic you’ve posted here. I just don’t get it!!

    Can she just go away already?

    Ugh, another reality show on a station that is an acronym for Video Hits One, no videos though. I just got back from Europe and they still play videos on their version of VH1. Maybe it’s time for VH1 and MTV to change their names.

    Well, whenever this show comes on, I’ll know what Slezak will be doing! Michael, she should have you on as a guest, lol!!!!!!

    Fanny is so talented!! If reality television can help Keyshia Cole then it will definently do wonders for Fantasia who can outsing half the chicks on the radio if given the right songs.

    What is up with people saying that were waiting on a comeback…? She never went anywhere, she was on broadway and shes been doing shows all over so a comeback I think not… Hood Boy was like not one of her best but if u listened to her last album Fantasia then u should know that there were a lot more songs that were worthy… Fantasia’s reality show is not that shes fallin as an artist it just she need her name out there a little more because her current producers are not promoting her in the correct way..

    What I love about this is that again, Fantasia does the unexpected she’s not afraid to do something different and be the first to “test the waters”. no idol contestant has ever had their own movie and their very own reality show show so it’s not like it’s some sort of a failure , it is a milestone.
    I think a reality show is a great thing for a signed recording artist as that is extra promotion that she never got from her record company. It did wonders for Keyshia Cole and Jessica Simpson and I think it’d do even more for Fantasia becuse she has more talent then both if them combined.

    I’ll be watching. She’s one of my favorite singers. She is a great performer with two successful albums and a 3rd on the way later this year.
    She’ll be performing at the Kennedy Center in July.

    I can’t believe half the people on here! Anyway! I have loved this girl since AI Season 3. And I have followed her career and millions would jump at the chance at her career! Please….failing…..I think Not! People who know show business know she ain’t no where near failing! This girl is a gem and rightfully so, VH-1 should be thanking God because she will give them better ratings! Just you watch! Lol! Ofcourse I’ll be watching and so will all my family who all live in 10 different house’s! Not Apartments Thank You!
