Following in the esteemed footsteps of Flavor Flav, Danny Bonaduce, and Brooke Hogan, former American Idol winner Fantasia will be getting her own VH1 reality series, according to The Hollywood Reporter. And, frankly, I cannot wait. As I write this blog, a signed poster from Fantasia, given to me by my wonderful colleague Nicholas Fonseca (check out Nicholas’ fantastic 2006 profile of Fantasia), hangs behind me. Now, I’ll admit her career has been erratic to say the least, but I absolutely loved her last album, especially the single “Hood Boy.” And I root for her to make a comeback. Underdogs always make for great television so, VH1, you can count me in. As long as you don’t pair her with Brooke Hogan.
What do you think PopWatchers? Will you watch Fantasia’s reality series? Do you love “Hood Boy” as much as I do? Is that even possible?!
