Fantasia Barrino Reality Show: Coming Soon!

by at . Comments

Fantasia Barrino, a former American Idol finalist that has suffered from recent financial problems, will star in an upcoming reality show on VH1.

It will likely debut in early 2010.

"Fantasia has one of the most fascinating stories in show business, from her tough upbringing to her meteoric rise on the national scene thanks to American Idol,'" Jeff Olde, executive VP of original programming at VH1, told The Hollywood Reporter.

"Her challenges from fame and her unwillingness to fail have combined to create a larger-than-life talent who appeals to music lovers around the world. So many people wanted to work with her on this, but Fantasia is now part of the VH1 family, and we're so happy to have her."
