Barrino Fumes Over Losing Dreamgirls Role to Jennifer Hudson
American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino was devastated when fellow talent
show contestant Jennifer Hudson beat her to the part of Effie White in the
forthcoming Dreamgirls movie.
Barrino, who beat Hudson in the 2004 season of the televised music
contest, auditioned for the role of the troubled sixties singer, but lost
out to Hudson.
She says, "I was a little hurt. I remember calling Jennifer. She
picked up the phone and I said, 'Heifer, you took my part.'"
