Life After American Idol

Many of you know Fantasia as the winner from the third season of American Idol. She made a couple CD's, performed on Broadway and then she stepped out of the spotlight.

So what’s Fantasia been up to? Well, our T.J. Holmes paid a visit to her in Washington. He went one-on-one with her just before curtain call as she reprised her role as Celie in Alice Walker’s Color Purple.

Fantasia also opens up to T.J. about her childhood, surgery on her throat tumor, life lessons about fame, being functionally illiterate and working to obtain her GED.

Start your day with T.J. Holmes and Betty Nguyen Saturday morning to check out this interview and all the latest news including the health care reform debate and Michael Vick’s deal with the Eagles starting at 6am ET/3am PT.

The Obamas' night out

It was a campaign promise President Obama made to his wife.

From a White House statement on the President's date night with the First Lady: "I am taking my wife to New York City because I promised her during the campaign that I would take her to a Broadway show after it was all finished."

No sooner than date night was announced, the Republican National Committee sent out a statement of their own attacking the President for spending tax payer's money in hard economic times.

What are you thoughts? Was the President's date night a much needed break from the White House or a waste of money?
