Singer Ashanti has landed a new gig in Hollywood on Lifetime’s hit drama “Army Wives.”

Ashanti is making big moves in Hollywood having landed a series regular role on Lifetime’s “Army Wives.” Ashanti, who’s been taking on acting roles since her 2002 appearance on “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch,” will play Latasha Durant on the Lifetime series. Her character is described as “an optimistic mother of three, a sexy, fun woman who knows how to keep a husband – and how to keep him in line”

Ashanti isn’t the only new addition to “Army Wives” as the series has also hired Torrey DeVitto and Elle McLemore as regulars. The show starts filming Season 7 in mid-December in Charleston, South Carolina.

Not sure how Ashanti’s going to mesh with the rest of the very talented cast. Apparently, a few of the roles are now going to recurring status with one of the lead roles, Kim Delaney, leaving the show entirely. So now’s Ashanti’s chance to make a name for herself on tv….Best Wishes to her. What are your thoughts? Will you be watching?
