As Season 3 of Single Ladies returns, as the VH1 press release states…

… 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.

For the first time ever, VH1 launched a Single Ladies eBook series set between the finale of season 2 and the premiere of season 3, and focusing on the individual lives and loves of the show’s leading ladies (April, Raquel and Keisha).

A lot of time has passed since we last saw the women of Single Ladies, and that means we’ve forgotten a lot of important plot points. Where did we leave off with everyone? For starters, Raquel was about to choose between sexy sex addict Antonio and rich, handsome Charles. We learned that April‘s boyfriend Reggie‘s family thinks he’s gay. And Keisha and Malcolm were just about to live happily ever after. But so much more happened last season, so watch the condensed version of season two complete with cast and crew commentary above, and get ready for the season three premiere on Monday, January 6 at 9PM ET/PT to see how these stories end up!
