Right. Please keep in mind, folks, that tomorrow night at 9 p.m. on Lifetime, The Fantasia Barrino Story: Life Is Not a Fairy Tale, will premiere. You may already be familiar with Life Is Not a Fairy Tale, as it was the first book profiled in the enormously popular NB Book Club. If you aren't, Life Is Not a Fairy Tale is the story of Fantasia Barrino, the winner of the third season of American Idol, from birth to presumably the moment she learned how to read the script of this film. Yes, Fantasia is playing herself in this movie. And, believe it or not, that's not the best part. Dwayne Wayne is playing her dad, Jojo. It's true—Kadeem Hardison is working again, and we couldn't be happier. Well, we could if Shirley Hemphill were alive and playing Fantasia's mom. But she's not. So we couldn't be happier.
Anyway, just remember—life is not a fairy tale. People defy enormous odds to win hugely popular national televised talent shows every day.
