Are you as sick as we've been of seeing Fantasia Barrino living a fake life?

If so, VH1 is your destination on January 11. On that date, the network premieres Fantasia for Real.

The eight-episode series will chronicle the life of this former American Idol champion, who has clearly fallen on desperate times if she can only make money via reality TV as opposed to album sales.

“Fantasia has engaged millions of fans not only through her music and her amazing talent but also by her incredible fairytale life story,” said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Original Programming & Production, VH1.

“Our audience helped Fantasia become an American Idol and now, with this series, they get a backstage pass into her real life as she confronts obstacles to realize her true potential as an artist, a mother, a daughter and a sister.”
