Did anybody watch the Fantasia For Real season opener on VH1 last night?
I did. The episode begins with Fantasia boasting that she’s finally kicked all her relatives out of her house. Now she’s ready to do things “her way” whatever that means. Considering the events of the past few weeks, I don’t think I want to know.
There were plenty of contrived situations to remind me of why I hate celebrity reality shows: Fantasia and her Aunt Bunny go pole dancing. Aunt Bunny drops in on brother Teeny so she can lecture him, Fantasia’s manager warns her that the London concert she’s got scheduled isn’t selling very well (but magically the hall is filled when she gets there!). Eh.
Fantasia hasn’t overdosed yet. The show producers are probably saving that “money shot’ (and the scenes with her married boyfriend Antwuan Cook) for upcoming episodes.
At one point, Aunt Bunny and ‘Tasia’s mom confront her about Antwuan, resulting in Fantasia crying alone in her bedroom.
The entire episode will eventually be posted at Vh1.com. Or, you can catch on of the re-runs. There are a couple of Web-only bonus clips available–watch them after the jump.
