Paula Cook with son (and Antwuan in inset)

*RadarOnline recently reported that Oprah is attempting to bring Paula Cook on her show to talk about how Fantasia Barrino stole her man. However, no word yet on what she is going to do. In the meantime, Mo’Nique is also hoping to get Cook on her show as well.

She has taken a leave of absence from her teaching job to contemplate all of her options.

A source told RadarOnline:

“Paula has been approached by Oprah’s people to go on her chat show. She still hasn’t decided what she will do though, and she was also approached by Mo’Nique too.

“There was also the chance for her to appear on a new reality show about spurned women, and she’s considering another option to write a book about the whole Fantasia saga.

“At the moment she is weighing up all these offers and is just taking time out to look after her sons.

“She has been allowing Antwaun to spend time with the boys although she is becoming more resigned to the fact that their marriage is definitely over now.

“Despite anything that Fantasia may say about Antwaun being separated from his wife when she started dating him, Paula firmly believes that she knowingly got involved with a married man.”

Meanwhile, we reported, Barrino – whose new album, “Back To Me” was released Tuesday, August 24 – opened-up to People about her recent suicide attempt.

“I didn’t have any fight in me. I didn’t care about anything. I just wanted out,” Barrino, 26, revealed.

“At that moment, I wanted out. I wanted it to be over with – all of it, all of that [expletive].”

In the new interview, Barrino goes in-depth about her actual attempts at self-destruction.
