Just a few interesting points…this is all beginning to look like nothing more than publicity (or perhaps, since it happened, they might as well spin it for press and exposure):
Fantasia will address her recent suicide attempt on an upcoming episode of VH1â€²s Behind The Music, which airs tomorrow (the same day that her album drops)…apparently she is admitting that it was in fact a suicide attempt: I didnâ€™t have any fight in me. I didnâ€™t care about anything. I just wanted out. At that moment, I wanted out. I wanted it to be over with â€“ all of it, all of that [expletive]. I just sat in the closet and looked at the mirror and took all the pills in the bottle. I wanted to go to sleep and just be at peace. I knew exactly what I was doing. You canâ€™t accidentally take a whole bottle of pills.â€
She also speaks on Antwaun Cook: â€œWhen I met him, he was separated â€¦ wasnâ€™t living in his home. He didnâ€™t want to be back with his wife â€“ that is what I was told,â€ Barrino says. â€œI remember waking up in the hospital [and thinking], â€˜It didnâ€™t work, Iâ€™m still here in this hellhole. Still here with all this drama going on.â€™ My nurse Melanie was a blessing into my life because she didnâ€™t tell me what I wanted to hear,â€ she says. â€œShe told me what I needed to hear. And she looked at me and said, â€˜You gotta get up, and youâ€™ve gotta get out of here, â€™cause you havenâ€™t fulfilled your destiny.â€™ I realized how people end up in the grave. Because that one moment [snaps her fingers] of just breaking or feeling like I canâ€™t, I canâ€™t go on, itâ€™s too heavy. That was somewhere I donâ€™t ever want to go again.â€
Radar Online is reporting that Antwaunâ€™s wife has been approached by Oprah to come on her show.
