Life may not be a fairy tale, but it gets a little Alice in Wonderlandish at times.
Lifetime says that principal photography has begun on Life Is Not a Fairy Tale: The Fantasia Barrino Story.
In the film, Barrino will play herself in a scripted version of a TV biopic about herself as the featured contestant in the unscripted TV show American Idol.
Don't know if she can act. Her imdb.com movie database bio lists a bunch of TV credits, but all playing "herself." Of course, that is what she will be doing, so in that sense she is a TV veteran.
