Fantasia’s Suicide Attempt Captured for Reality Show (VIDEO)

By: / September 17, 2010

You have to give Fantasia Barrino credit: Even when in the throes of a complete personal breakdown, she still takes care of business.

The American Idol winner, who attempted suicide in August on the heel of an affair scandal, debuts season two of her reality series, Fantasia for Real, on Sunday, and judging from a promo released on Thursday, she’s not shying away from airing her personal laundry.

In the trailer, Barrino is seen debating the scandal (the singer allegedly carried on a year-long affair with a still-married Antwaun Cook, according to allegation from Cook’s ex-wife, though Barrino denies it) with family members. The video quickly cuts to the 911 call following Barrino’s intentional overdose on aspiring and an unknown sleep aid, and footage of Barrino recuperating in the hospital.

Fantasia is also heard reflecting,

“I have not fulfilled my destiny. It’s not time for me to go anywhere. And I can still fight, still keep going. I’m better now.”
