Fantasia Barrino again is making negative headlines. The "American Idol'' winner and Broadway star is named in a North Carolina lawsuit, with Paula Cook claiming Barrino not only engaged in an affair with her husband, Antwaun Cook, but made a sex tape with him.

Mrs. Cook filed the suit to seek child support from her estranged husband, further charging Barrino and Antwaun Cook began their ''covert adulterous affair'' in August 2009 -- after meeting at a T-Mobile store.

Barrino has denied any romantic involvement with Cook and has not commented on the filing of the lawsuit.

North Carolina is one of seven states with ''home wrecker'' laws on the books. However, no lawsuit specifically targeting Barrino has yet been filed.

Along with claiming Barrino and Cook ''recorded their illicit activity,'' Paula Cook further claims Barrino told her in a phone conversation, ''He don't want you. Maybe the next time that you get a husband you'll know how to keep him. That's why he is here with me.''

• Since winning the third season of ''American Idol'' in 2004, Barrino has been plagued by a number of unflattering stories, including tales of financial problems and missing many performances in the Broadway production of ''The Color Purple.'' A longtime ''Idol'' staffer said Sunday, ''I don't think you'll be seeing Fantasia in any way used in the upcoming season of the show.'' source

For the life of me, can someone please explain the need to make sex tapes.  I understand the excitement of idea and everything.  Trust me, I get it.  But after everything we've seen happen with these tapes being exposed, why even put yourself in that predicament.  I mean look at what happened to John Edwards and his mistress, Pamela and Tommy Lee, and countless others.  I'm saying things like this tend not to end well.
I'm pretty sure when most people engage in making a home video, they think it's going to remain private between all parties involved, but that hasn't been the case these days.  Listen if you are going to make a sex tape, just erase the tape when you're done.  If you have to watch it, watch it, but afterwards erase it.  And note to women, make sure you are in possession of the tape.  It's okay to trust your man, but make sure you are the one with the tape.  That's all I'm saying...
