If you remember Farrah Franklin (and if you don’t, I completely understand), you can recall her brief stint in Destiny’s Child that consisted of two video appearances, maybe four televised performances, and about five minutes in the MTV Diary special on Destiny’s Child that led to her getting the boot. Since then she’s been in a couple of men’s magazines, videos for R.L. and Mr. Cheeks, and appeared on Wendy Williams’ radio show – where Wendy said she’s fine as long as she has Pro Tools. Not sure whatever happened to her record deals with Nelly and Fabolous, but ever the trooper, Farrah Franklin proves that there ain’t nothing going on but the rent. She makes her acting debut in One Love Films’ Single Black Female. You can check out the trailer by clicking on the video above.
The film also features Slim Thug, Chris Rock’s brother, and that guy who was in that show from a while ago. I can’t knock the straight-to-DVD game: It gives black filmmakers a chance and it makes people money. Who buys these films? I don’t know, but ya’ll are out there, so I’m seriously considering grabbing my camera phone (Hey, it’s a Sony, which means it’s good quality! Don’t hate!), finding Teairra Mari, Keyshia Cole’s mama (she’s a star), and that Hispanic guy from Immature’s numbers, and pitching a movie. Spike Lee, watch out!
And if you were wondering, yes, Farrah still looks like Fat Cat to me.
