Fantasia’s movie “The Fantasia Barrino Story: Life is not a Fairy Tale” premiers on the Lifetime channel tonight at 9 pm.
Fantasia plays herself in this film is based on Fantasia’s autobiography of the same name.
The movie has received pretty dismal reviews. And there’s been controversy. Idol producers are depicted in the film asking Fantasia to quit the competition after her status as an unwed mom becomes controversial in some quarters. The producers have come out on record categorically denying the conversation took place.
I tend to believe them because: 1. The producers were certainly aware of her history going in to the competition. And 2. She was totally pimped that season to win it all. And she did.
At any rate, I’m recording it for the snark value. I just can’t help myself. Heh.
