Remember Racquel Bailey, the actress who splashed $2,000 to get Tyler Perry’s attention via billboard adverts requesting to be featured in his shows?

Well, it looks like her efforts have finally paid off.

When the news broke, Perry wasn’t exactly wowed with her antics posting a scathing message on Instagram saying the money could have been put to better use.

All that is now water under the bridge according to a story by TMZ as Racquel has now landed a role in Perry’s upcoming show for BET, Sistas.

According to TMZ, Bailey will play a police officer who once dated one of the leads in the show. She will be in the season one finale and may appear in season two.

So, we are happy for the determined actress, whose work Tyler Perry acknowledged he was already familiar with prior to the billboard debacle.

This was my leap of faith,” Racquel tells TMZ. “This was my choice. This was something I felt like I needed to do to stand out.”

While speaking to the outlet, she confirmed that she had auditioned for Perry since the billboard went up, although it’s unclear what caused Perry to change his mind.

When I put up the billboard, I didn’t know what to expect,” she says. “I didn’t know what was going to happen and what one thing you have to have in this industry is thick skin and so he didn’t crush anything in me, at all. Nothing.”

Racquel also confirmed the TMZ report to AJC via a text statement.

I have been dreaming of this since I was a little girl,. I feel like my dreams are coming true. And it’s because I believed.”

Sistas follows a diverse set of black women who bond over the fact they’re all single. According to the report, the women will bond over “their complicated love lives, careers and friendships” while dealing with the world of “social media and unrealistic relationship goals.”

Also, according to TMZ, the billboard got Bailey 20 auditions and she booked two other gigs before getting Sistas.

Congratulations to Racquel!
