Barrino In Tears Over Daughter

Troubled singer FANTASIA BARRINO broke down in tears on TV on Friday (10Sep10) when she was quizzed by U.S. chat show host WENDY WILLIAMS about her recent suicide attempt.
Barrino was taken to hospital last month (Aug10) after overdosing on sleeping pills and aspirin and she has since revealed the attempt was no accident - she wanted to die.
The drama prompted hardcore gossip queen Williams to ask the former American Idol star if she thought about her daughter before deciding to take her life.
The pertinent question prompted her chat show guest to burst into tears.
Through the sobs, she said, "At the time I wasn’t really thinking about anybody because... nobody knows how heavy it (fame) is. You see the glitz and the glamour and you think they've got it, they've got it all, but a lot of times when you come into this industry you have a lot of people who say they're there for you, but a lot of times they're just there to get what they can get... Nobody was there to help me clean it up."

ms Jones, you have a heart of stone.. until you can walk and live Tasia life you are not fit to criticize, Tasia loves her daughter and all her family members dearly.. why else would she finance their lives for so long, depression is very deep, i know Ive seen it first hand. offer encouragement not hate, we are none without sin. Tasia acted naive but she is not a home wrecker, its about time we look at who we marry instead of shifting the blame on the women for the actions of a grown ass man... I wish only the best for Tasia...
