Fantasia

Do As I Say,

Not As I Do (Or Say)

8/29/2010 4:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Fantasia Barrino admittedly took a whole bottle of aspirin because she "wanted it to be over with" -- but in a Las Vegas club Friday night, she made the whole incident seem like something that was done to her ... not something she did to herself.

It's been three weeks since her "suicide attempt" and Fantasia has gone back to shooting her reality show and promoting her new album. She performed at Rain nightclub over the weekend where she told the crowd, "They thought I was finished, they thought I was done, they counted me out. But I will never, ever stop. I don't care what nobody say about me ... Don't let your haters stop you. Don't let nobody stand in the way of your destiny."

Just a few days ago, Fantasia told VH1 (the network that airs her reality show), "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."

She knew what she was doing all right.

People always wants to pass judgement that she is a home-wrecker and this that and the 3rd. But actually if anyone is too blame it is already the crumbling marriage and the man. How can you blame Tasia, many are GOOD persuaders and can lie really good. So if anyone is to blame it would be they man she hooked up with. Half of you women are quick to past judgement but what if it was an average girl from Atlanta, then no one would be saying anything.

Ok Fantasia the only thing you have accomplished is to make yourself look like a loser. The poor little me routine of yours is washed up and over. Now I will admit you have a great voice, However so do a Thousand other stars. You had your fame on American Idol and that is about as far as it is going to go. Using this to promote your new release was a dumb move on your part and your agents. You made the decision to make this public so don't be shocked that everyone is looking down on you. We all forgot about you until this and your woe is me story is NOT going to make anyone go out and buy your CD. For all of you so called Christians!!! Stop using God in one word and then turn around and call someone an Ass or to "F" off in the next word.

i just read about what happened to you and my heart goes out to you. i grew up in the COGIC church and one thing i know is that God won't give you more than you can handle. don't listen to the negative...think about Zion. i have lupus, fibromyalgia, blood clot in my lung, i had a heart attack last year and lost my best friend. there are days when i hate waking up, but i have 2 kids who only have me. keep ur head up. if nobody else loves you, GOD does
