Fantasia lands a reality show.....Jesus take the wheel.

The series for VH1 is slated to premiere in early 2010. The show will focus on the nine-time Grammy nominee's life as a recording artist and 24-year-old single mother.

"Fantasia has one of the most fascinating stories in show business, from her tough upbringing to her meteoric rise on the national scene thanks to 'American Idol,' " Jeff Olde, executive vice president of original programming at VH1, said in a statement announcing the show. "Her challenges from fame and her unwillingness to fail have combined to create a larger-than-life talent who appeals to music lovers around the world. So many people wanted to work with her on this, but Fantasia is now part of the VH1 family, and we're so happy to have her."

The title of the VH1 show and the length of the run have not yet been announced.

Fantasia is currently working on her third studio album, due out this year, and has been tapped to reprise her Broadway role as Celie in the film adaptation of "The Color Purple" musical.

Fantasia already had a biography movie 2 or 3 years ago. She is still in her 20's and we already need something else about her and her life? No thanks she is low-class ghetto trash.
