NEW YORK, Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- VH1 and Queen Latifah's Flavor Unit Entertainment are kicking off the New Year with the third season premiere of hit scripted series "Single Ladies." After averaging 3.3 million total viewers during premiere plus first encore over the last season each Monday night, VH1's first hour-long scripted series returns with fan favorites LisaRaye McCoy (Keisha), Denise Vasi (Raquel), Charity Shea (April), D.B. Woodside (Malcolm), Travis Winfrey (Omar), Terrell Tilford (Sean), Harold "House" Moore (Terrence) and introducing new supporting cast members LeToya Luckett (Felicia Price), Damien Dante Wayans (David Berenger) and Lesley-Ann Brandt (Naomi Cox).

As Season 3 of "Single Ladies" returns, we find our three fabulous friends tighter than ever and ready for more crazy and wild adventures. The premiere jumps three months ahead with a lavish wedding, leading to a new romance and new personal challenges for Raquel (Denise Vasi), April (Charity Shea), Keisha (LisaRaye McCoy) and Omar (Travis Winfrey). Raquel turns her focus to her boutique, Indulgence, and soon finds passion in an unexpected partnership. April lands the opportunity of a lifetime working for one of Atlanta's most powerful music managers, Felicia Price (LeToya Luckett), who rules her company and the music world with an iron stiletto. While navigating Price Management, April gets embroiled into an ongoing rivalry with her new colleague David Berenger (Damien Dante Wayans). As Keisha and Malcolm (D.B. Woodside) return to Atlanta from travelling around the world, their relationship is threatened by a sudden tragedy, a mysterious woman, Naomi Cox, (Lesley-Ann Brandt) and other unexpected secrets.
