Fantasia Back To School, For Real

Fantasia might be looking forward to “rebuilding” her “dynasty,” but on the soon to premiere reality series “Fantasia For Real” the singer found herself facing a difficult task — going back to school… “You get to see me doing homework and sitting down with the teacher, which is, like, totally difficult,” Fantasia told MTV recently. As revealed in her 2005 memoir ‘Life Is Not A Fairytale,’ Fantasia could hardly read or write before hiring a tutor shortly after her American Idol win. Calling the decision to showcase the return to the classroom one that may help others, Fantasia says “…my reason for doing that is so every person can see that it’s very important if you’re in school to stay in school, and if you’re not, it’s very important to go back.” ‘Fantasia For Real,’ the American Idol winner’s anticipated reality series, premieres Monday, January 11 at 10pm on VH1.
