A report today by Radar Online says that the queen of talk shows Oprah Winfrey has initiated contact with Paula Cook, the now estranged woman whose soon-to-be-ex husband Fantasia Barrino had an affair with.
If Fantasia was hoping things would start settling down regarding her personal life and affair with Antwaun Cook, a man who told her when they met that he was separated from his wife, she may have to wait.
When Oprah asks, Oprah usually gets and it’s very possible that Paula Cook will go on her show and talk about the sordid affair. Radar Online says that Cook is actually considering the offer and has also been asked by Mo’Nique for an appearance on her show.
Fantasia can’t be happy about the possibility of the salacious affair being broadcast to millions if Cook appears on Oprah’s show. It’s doubtful that such an interview would paint the American Idol Season 3 winner in a very positive light.
It’s also very possible that Cook’s appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show could hurt the promotion of Fantasia’s new album “Back to Me” which comes out on Tuesday, August 24th.
Fantasia recently spoke with People about her suicide attempt and told them, “I wanted to go to sleep and just be at peace. I knew exactly what I was doing. You can’t accidentally take a whole bottle of pills.”
Barrino said she tried to kill herself because she “was tired of people doing me wrong, constantly, over and over again, dealing with my family — my father, dealing with men and their [expletive] — I was tired — my head was hurting me. I was over it.”
