New addition.

Denise Vasi (ex-Randi) has joined the cast of VH1’s scripted TV series “Single Ladies.” She will appear in the second season as Raquel, a close friend of original character Keisha (LisaRaye McCoy). Raquel is described as a savvy business woman from a prominent Southern family looking for passion.

Of casting Vasi, Jeff Olde, EVP Original Production and Programming for VHI, said, “We are thrilled to welcome Denise to the cast of ‘Single Ladies’. It was a rare and wonderful moment during the audition when everyone in the room immediately knew we had found our ‘Raquel’. Denise’s beauty, style, grace and humor leap from the screen and we can’t wait to share her with our viewers and fans of the show.”

“Single Ladies” is a romantic comedy series set in Atlanta that explores women’s different approaches to relationships. Season two will begin filming in January and premiere early summer 2012.
