Say what you want about her but Ashanti (with help from her obviously amazing team) knows how to keep herself relevant and with a check coming in. It was just announced that she has been added to the cast of one of Lifetime’s most popular series, Army Wives.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ashanti will play Latasha Durant, mother of three children ages 11, 8 and 6, with the youngest suffering from Cystic Fibrosis. She’s also described as “a survivor with no self-pity who is determined to wrench all the joy out of life that she can. She’s a Hot, fun woman who knows how to keep a husband — and keep him in line.” It sounds like she landed a fairly well-rounded role on the show which will be entering its seventh season.
This is great news for Ashanti and it continues to broaden her up to a wider audience. Her past film credits include Resident Evil: Extinction, John Carter Must Die and Coach Carter. Her acting skills have been described by many as average, at best, but she clearly knows how to make people buy into everything that she wants to do. It doesn’t hurt that she also appears to have quite the pleasant demeanor.
There was talk that Army Wives was going to be canceled at the end of last season but with the addition of Ashanti and also actresses Torrey Devitto and Elle McLemore, the writers and creators are clearly prepping for some new storylines.
Do you watch the show? If not, will Ashanti make you tune in every now and then once it returns?
After putting out teasers for this video, and “V.I.Leaks” on 106 & Park, the video for Ashanti’s track, “The Woman You Love,” is out, and she’s officially back. Homegirl goes all futuristic in the video, playing a tortured soul floating in the future who needs to let go of the past in order to be free. In order to do so, she looks back over the relationship that hurt her thanks to a cheating boo played by actor Marcus Patrick. His cameo as her love interest is a little hard for me to take seriously after I peeped him doing a strip tease in this B. Scott video…
But anyway, while the song really isn’t that bad, her vocals aren’t much stronger I must say. Busta Rhymes makes this track worth listening to, and makes a cameo in the video repping YMCMB VERY hard (why are they signing all these old a** artists?). And Ashanti’s attire in the video is pretty fierce too, though I really need her to ditch that head-braid crap she keeps walking out the house with. But alas…Check the video below and tell us what you think. Is Ashanti back?
What do you think? Pass or play for you?
