Oprah may have given Fantasia a great opportunity with “The Color Purple” but their relationship seems to be coming secondary to the potentially huge ratings she’ll see if she’s able to persuade Paula Cook, the estranged wife of ‘Tasia’s now ex-boyfriend Antwaun Cook, to come on the show.
According to RadarOnline reports:
Oprah Winfrey has reached out to Paula Cook to talk about how American Idol star Fantasia Barrino stole her husband, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
Paula – whose husband Antwaun Cook allegedly left her and their two sons for the Grammy nominated singer – is still considering Oprah’s offer and has also been approached by Oscar winner Mo’Nique to appear on her talk show too.
And while Fantasia has now opened-up about her botched recent suicide attempt, Cook has taken a leave of absence from her teaching job while she considers her options.
A source told RadarOnline.com: “Paula has been approached by Oprah’s people to go on her chat show. She still hasn’t decided what she will do though, and she was also approached by Mo’Nique too.
“There was also the chance for her to appear on a new reality show about spurned women, and she’s considering another option to write a book about the whole Fantasia saga.
“At the moment she is weighing up all these offers and is just taking time out to look after her sons.
“She has been allowing Antwaun to spend time with the boys although she is becoming more resigned to the fact that their marriage is definitely over now.
“Despite anything that Fantasia may say about Antwaun being separated from his wife when she started dating him, Paula firmly believes that she knowingly got involved with a married man.”
SMH… Everybody is gonna get their little 15 minutes in this debacle. If Paula’s smart she’ll stay off these talk shows until the divorce is finalized. She might not want to chance saying anything that can mess her up in court.
