It seems like almost all of our favorite celebrities are jumping on the reality TV bandwagon — with singers Brandy, Monica, Kandi Burruss, and Tiny Harris getting their own shows at one point in time. Well, move over ladies, because it looks like R&B singer Ashanti is ready to hop aboard too!
During a stop at the Power 105.1 Breakfast Club to promote her new album, BraveHeart, Ashanti threw out the notion that she’d definitely love to have her own show.
“Music is definitely a passion, and is what’s in my heart. As far as a paycheck is concern, television is where it’s at. Like I’m trying to get a show immediately!”
When asked what kind of show she’d like to do, she replied, “something that makes sense for me, that doesn’t look like a reach, that I’m still having fun, and bring something new to the table.”
Ashanti is no stranger to being in front of the cameras, with appearances in movies (John Tucker Must Die, Resident Evil: Extinction) and television shows (Army Wives) under her belt. It wouldn’t be too much of a stretch if Ashanti wanted to pursue the reality TV idea, but when Huffington Post asked the singer whether she’d want to work in film, scripted TV, or reality TV she responded:
“If I had it my way, it would be all three. But in a way that I can control it. I'm not necessarily a candidate for a person to have a camera following me all around every day. But if it's something that I could control what they see and what they don't see, in certain aspects, then that's different.
It's crazy, because I was approached years ago to do a reality show and I was like, "WHAT!? Never!" But now, they're coming out with these eight-figure deals, we may have to revisit that.”
