The 'American Idol' winner was rushed to a North Carolina hospital on Aug. 9 after ingesting a potentially lethal amount of aspirin and a sleeping aid. Her suicide attempt was triggered by news that she was responsible for destroying the marriage of her alleged boyfriend Antwaun Cook. Her boyfriend's wife, Paula Cook, made the allegations public when she filed court papers claiming that she could produce a sex tape as proof of the affair.
When Fantasia stopped by our Sessions studio in Los Angeles recently to perform songs from her new album 'Back to Me,' the 26-year-old opened up about the struggle to remain positive. "We fall down but we have to get back up," Fantasia said. "You can't just keep holding our shoulders down, keep pushing me down and reminding me of what I've done. We all have to go through things so we can get better."
Check out the preview of 'Fantasia for Real 2,' after the jump. The show's second season will premiere on VH1 Sunday, September 26 at 10PM.
