This just in...: Fantasia Barrino admits to suicide attempt; Bristol Palin gets $14K for speaking engagement
- "America Idol" winner Fantasia Barrino says her overdose two weeks ago was a suicide attempt. "I just wanted out," she told VH1. "I knew exactly what I was doing. You can't accidentally take a whole bottle of pills." Barrino, 26, said she was overwhelmed with personal problems, including an affair with a married man. And not that we're cynical or anything, but her third album comes out this week.
- Bristol Palin, 19, is mending her broken heart on the speaker's circuit -- at $14,000 a pop. The teen mom will be paid to speak in Louisville next month at a benefit for Lifehouse, a home for single mothers, reports the Louisville Courier-Journal.
