Bey, Kelly And Michelle Aren’t The Only Destiny Child Members Working: LeToya Luckett Set To Join The Cast Of “Single Ladies”
While we might not have had the chance to see all of the talent LeToya Luckett had to offer back when she was a Child of Destiny (Mathew put most of the focus on you know who), once she went her own way, we were able to see that not only could Luckett “saaaang,” but she could act pretty well too. She had a recurring role on the HBO series Treme, was a regular on the first season of the BET show Second Generation Wayans, and she starred alongside singer Tank in a pretty corny but entertaining film called Preacher’s Kid. All this experience has now led the singer/actress to an offer for a role on the VH1 series Single Ladies (YES it’s coming back soon…for real this time).
According to Shadow and Act, the show is coming back in the summer, and Luckett will be playing a harda** businesswoman named Felicia Price. Her character will be a cold senior partner of a huge music management company.
Also being added to the lineup is cutie Damien Wayans, who will go toe-to-toe with April, the lone white girlfriend out of the “Single Ladies”: “Wayans will play David Berenger, April’s (Charity Shea’s) main foil at Price Management – a masterful sycophant, and a slick manager on the Atlanta music scene.”
Despite the so-so writing and acting of this Queen Latifah-produced show, Single Ladies has managed to secure a pretty big following for a scripted series on VH1. According to Shadow and Act, during season two there was a 10 percent increase in viewership, bringing in around 3.2 million viewers per episode. Question is, with these new additions, but also with the loss of showrunner Stacy A. Littlejohn, will you tune in for another season? We’ll have to wait and see what the summer brings!
