Naturi Naughton has signed on as a regular to play Kendra, a beautiful, hard-working masseuse at a parlor which offers more than back rubs (hmmm...) in the upcoming Lifetime Drama series The Client List, which will also star Jennifer Love Hewitt.

From Deadline:

EXCLUSIVE: The Playboy Club co-star Naturi Naughton has joined the cast of Lifetime’s upcoming drama series The Client List as a series regular. Based on the network’s 2010 original movie, the Sony TV-produced series stars Jennifer Love Hewitt as Riley, a Texas housewife who, after being deserted by her husband, ends up running a massage parlor, The Rub, which offers more than back rub. Naughton will play a new character, Kendra, a beautiful, hard-working masseuse at the parlor. Actress-singer Naughton, who co-starred in the 2009 feature remake of Fame, played Black bunny Brenda on NBC’s short-lived Playboy Club.

Interesting....sounds racy?

    Naturi keeps showin how great of an actress she is...i saw her in Notorious, Lottery Ticket and in the Playboy show and she has played all those "distinct" roles extremely well! Happy for her...and yes she is sexy as hell! Soooo what? I dont mind her being sexy...cuz unlike some of these actresses out here, she actually has the talent to back it up.

    Okay, so this was a Lifetime Original Movie a while back (starring Jennifer Love Hewitt) and at the end of the movie, she *SPOILER* (I HIGHLY doubt anyone cares about having that movie spoiled or couldn't at least predict the ending, but whatever), she quits being a massuse/hooker and goes back to school while waitressing. Soooooooo, they're making a show about her going BACK to hooking? Or at least being like the madam or whatever? Because her husband left her? Uhhhhhhhggggggg. . . Whatever, I'll probably watch the first few episodes.

    Happy for Naturi. I think she has talent.

    Curious to see the storyline for the series.

    My very first thought after reading this topic was George's thought #2. I'm glad she can land on her feet but can Naturi get a role that doesn't primarily revolve around her sensuality? Webster's should post her picture next to the definition of 'typecast'.

    Wow that was quick Naturi found a new acting gig well done!

    1.It's a show that's on "Lifetime"
    2.She seems to be typecast into roles in the sex trade.
