After 11 nominations (which also happens to be the same number of checks Teeny has bounced so far this month) Fantasia finally struck Grammy gold with a win for Best Female Vocal Performance on Sunday but the win was, eh, bittersweet.
In a phone call to 106 & Porch on the day following the awards ceremony, Fantasia candidly explained her decision for not attending the show after being overlooked to participate in the tribute to her idol Aretha Franklin.
The trout swimming upstream in Teeny’s dream last night doesn’t have a thing to do with Fantasia — and everything to do with his own mouth. Her manager Brian Dickens tells Radar Online that Fannie Mae is packing on the pounds in preparation for her role as legendary gospel powerhouse Mahalia Jackson.
On the season premiere episode of Fantasia, For Real . . . We Still Talking About You And That Married Man? airing this Sunday night Tasia Mae’s mom Diane and Aunt Bunny (no relation to Blue Bunny or Blue Bell for that matter) confronts the singer about rumors regarding her relationship with boyfriend Antwaun.
Instead of putting on her emo mushroom hairpiece she should try a thinking cap on for size. Just a suggestion though.
Prior to her suicide attempt Fantasia Barrino naturally faced a barrage of negative press surrounding her affair with Antwaun Cook and the lawsuit his wife Paula filed against the former American Idol.
But does she think her African and more ethnic features had anything to do with the excessive and sometimes mean-spirited tone of the coverage she received about her personal life? Say, versus the media’s nearly mute opinions of the controversial love lives and choices of other female entertainers like Britney Spears, LeAnn Rimes or Alicia Keys?
“I been in the house for a week so you know I’m bout to act ugly . . . When they said it was over for me, I’m here to say I’m back!”
SoundSavy.com was in the building as Tasia Mae’s whoring for propaganda campaign continued with an appearance / performance at Charlotte Bobcats player Tyrus Thomas’ birthday festivities over the weekend. Back fat be damned!
In a statement released through his attorney Antwaun Cook takes up for his latest meal ticket, People magazine reports. Antoine Dodson > Antwaun Cook. And don’t you forget it.
“Antwaun would be remiss not to address the criticism and judgment he has received,” Cook’s lawyer, Nicole Sodoma, said Wednesday in a statement. “He knew Fantasia Barrino but the failure of his marriage can in no way be blamed on anyone except the two people that were a part of the union – Paula and Antwaun.” (source)
Hospitalized last week for a suicide attempt, Fantasia is forging ahead with previously planned promotional appearances for her new album, Back to Me, her label J Records confirmed in a statement to Us Weekly.
“I can’t thank my fans enough for their prayers and support during such a challenging time,” the star said in Monday’s statement. “It has given me the motivation to get back to work . . . I put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into this album and I pray that everyone enjoys it as much as I do.”
Paula Cook, the estranged wife of Tasia’s boyfriend Antwaun Cook, was photographed on Sunday outside of her church in Charlotte, North Carolina. Her lawyer Tamela Wallace tells People magazine that the 36-year-old school teacher is ‘humiliated’ by her husband’s affair with Teeny’s cheese plates debtor.
