Oprah And Mo’Nique Invite Antwaun Cook’s Wife Paula On TV To Talk About Fantasia And Her Cheating Azz Husband

- By Bossip Staff

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.

      Apparently yall dumb biyatches dont know jack about business. If you were a nobody (like the estranged wife) and making perhaps $40k as a teacher and you get an offer to be on the show and get percentage of what the show makes…YOU WOULD GO ALL OUT AND TALK ABOUT EVERYTHING! C’mon now. That’s how yall black women do it. You dont have to lie to kick it! Mashonda didn’t go on Oprah cause she’s WELL OFF (aka baby daddy paying her lots of $$$ already so they dont need the money that bad). Yall act like yall would never accept to talk about anything on Oprah. PA-LEEEEASE! Yall frontin’. Fake a$$ h0ez!

      Oprah ALWAYS got some shhiitt goin!

    • LyricLynnLee

      This story is starting to make me sick. To be honest both those females are dumb. I don’t feel bad for Paula because she ain’t the first and she damn sure won’t be the last to find herself in this situation. Be a strong black women and stop playing the victim. Not once have a heard her say anything toward her “husband” but always blaming Fannie. There is more to this story and Fannie did step out on her, her husband did. That’s who she needs to have the issue with. Plus Fannie dumb for being with a dog (but we all know Fannie is literally dumb LOL)!

  • Allison Mae

    A book deal, are you serious?

  • shawna

    i don’t understand oprah why is it she want us black people on her show when something bad have happened and when something good is goin on she wants whites on her show and giving them money and sh-t. if i was paula i would go on the monique show aleast she does have all black people on her show.

    • ReALiSt aKa ReALeSt (BiG BaD BoSSiP BuLLy!!!)

      Thanks sister!! Monique’s show is the best show on T.V – she keeps it real unlike all the other fake shows… You’re the type of sisters I admire – keep it up!!

    • NewestObserver

      And if I were Paula I would not go on either show – LOL this should not be about Let’s Make The Best Deal…Paula is better off just moving on with her life and kids and say the heck with further ruining my life by going on a talk show…because that will not prove anything either. The marriage is kaput so she should leave it at that.

  • I AM

    Oprah, you are being a HYPOCRITE! and is not to be trusted. If you’re going to do this to make your rating higher – thendo it for all. YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I MEAN – WHEN I SAY FOR ALL.

    Be prepared to admit your mess of the same to the world.

    • NewestObserver

      From what I could tell Oprah was always a hypocrite and could not be trusted because she FAVORED the whites more on her shows and for that I stand continue to stand by what I have been observing through the years. She’s a FAKE too just like most of those other celebs.

  • chocolate gold

    @ It’s Me – THANK YOU! I thought I was the only one totally put off by Monique’s “style” of talk show hosting! I know she’s trying to come off “REAL” but my goodness is she ever so annoying, loud, with her false enthusiasm, ghetto fabulousness with all the “that’s right, baaebbeeee, that’s right!” OH PLEASE! I took one glance and I had to run before ear drums broke apart!

    As for Oprah, until she sits Alicia Keys on the couch and asks her about Swizz Beatz and Mashonda, she should stay away from Paula Cook. And does her not interviewing Fantasia first mean that Fanny has fallen off Oprah’s friend list? I think that’s rather odd that she didn’t reach out to Fantasia in light of her suicide attempt but wants to talk to the wife…hmmmm.

    • Delight23

      LOL. What? You mean you don’t like the loud, sister-girl, it’s just us (and couple 100K viewers) sitting on the porch flappin our gums like we do when the men ‘folk aint around STYLE of interviewing?

  • Love Me

    I can’t believe this man left his good looking wife for an ugly dumb looking broad. Settling for less to be ‘the other woman’ Fantasia knew dam well he WAS married.

    • NewestObserver

      That loser had $$$$ signs written all over his forehead when he left his wife for Fanny.

  • !!!!!


  • shawna

    ok u don’t like her show oh well fine but why u have to make fun of someone it’s funny we as black people will never learn to like or say nice things about each other but i betcha if it was kim kardashian u would be for it huh!

  • Ohh PLease

    shm did Oprah invite Swizz Beats wife when Alicia got pregnant??? Just askin

  • chocolate gold

    Paula Cook RUN!!! They all just want to bleed you dry, use your story to make more money for themselves and move on to the next big story! Focus on your children, getting your divorce settled and go back to your job because all this attention might seem cool now but then you become fodder afterwards. Protect yourself and your children!

    • NewestObserver

      I totally agree! She needs to tell them to go find another fool to boost your ratings because it will not be me and move on.

  • http://urnotpdiddyloser 5'10" AKILLAH RICHARDS(D.K.N.Y. boys like me a lot)

    No offense but why are people defending Fanstasia JUST BECAUSE SHE’S BLACK? It’s not like Alicia didnt get talked about like a dog.

    • shawna

      i’m not defending her and i’m black. she was wrong for what she did and i don’t believe for a second she didn’t know about paula. that’s why she probably tried the so call suicide attempt because she was embarrased and ashame. now she’s gonna be viewed different from black woman like myself who doesn’t get involved with married men.


      Your so right about that. Why didn’t she invite Swizz Beat’s ex to talk about her ordeal? You know why? Because Alicia keys is one of her girls. She wouldn’t dare to drag her name through the mud. DAMN YOU OPRAH!!!! Some damn things just need to be left alone. Paula should really re-think about this offer.

    • deschl

      Trust me I am not defending her, but why is she any worse than Alecia Keys, I say because she is one of Oprah’s darlings you know she love her light skinned people, Halle Berry comes to mind but she wants to make a bad situation worse, she just gonna use his wife for ratings. Now the other people Mashonda and company are already in the public eye. To me it sounds like a vendetta against Fantasia.

  • rantnravn

    i am not feeling oprah or monique on this. fantasia, antwaun & paula need to move on and heal and just let this go.

  • sillytome

    This thing is getting on my nerves…firstly you can’t make someone do something they don’t want to do. If he didnt want to be with Fantasia, no matter how she pursue him, he wouldnt have gone there, He would have said ‘I love my wife and am not interested’ but he didnt he got involve in a public relationship with her.

    At the end of the day she wasn’t the one that was married, he was. It was up to him to protect the vows that he took with his wife.

    It really irriates me when men and women blame other people for their relationship failures.

    (This is just my opinion on the matter)

    • http://urnotpdiddyloser 5'10" AKILLAH RICHARDS(D.K.N.Y. boys like me a lot)

      Yeah and if I see an old lady drop her purse and just kick it to the side until she’s out of sight, I guess Im innocent. right?

  • http://urnotpdiddyloser 5'10" AKILLAH RICHARDS(D.K.N.Y. boys like me a lot)

    How y’all gonna blame OPRAH for this? She had Jennifer Aniston on her show too! Maybe Oprah fees sorry for that girl, I know I do. FANTASIA IS N O T THE VICTIM!

  • http://urnotpdiddyloser 5'10" AKILLAH RICHARDS(D.K.N.Y. boys like me a lot)

    Again no offense but Alicia wasnt the FIRST girl Swizz impregnated while with Mashonda. It’s the same situation, but the details are different. just saying.

  • rain

    Let me know when she invites Mashonda to talk about alicia keys homewrecking wazz

  • Lovely One

    Will Oprah invite Mashonda as well?

  • rain

    I love Monique show

  • darealwifey

    Fantasia must have burned her bridges with Oprah because this seems personal. Disappointed that Oprah would help tear this sister down — even if she consistently made poor decisions.

    Fantasia needs to grow up and accept responsibility for her bad decisions. Her life is not a mess because of other people. She is a grown woman. When you are a child, it’s one thing. She is grown now. She needs to act like it. If her life is fugged up now, it’s her own fault. Not the men, not her mama, not her daddy.

    As for Paula Cook, she is looking for a come-up. Period. I don’t approve, but nobody has any morals anymore.
