Fantasia is back and ready to make waves on reality TV. But this time you won’t see her on Fox. She has signed a 2010 deal with Vh1 for a new reality TV show focusing on her life and the recording of her new album.
“Fantasia has one of the most fascinating stories in show business, from her tough upbringing to her meteoric rise on the national scene thanks to ‘American Idol,'” said Jeff Olde, executive vp original programming at VH1. “Her challenges from fame and her unwillingness to fail have combined to create a larger-than-life talent who appeals to music lovers around the world. So many people wanted to work with her on this, but Fantasia is now part of the VH1 family, and we’re so happy to have her.”
