Before getting a part on "Sistas," TMZ reported Bailey already auditioned for a Perry project, although whether it was the upcoming BET show is unclear. TMZ reported that the billboard got Bailey 20 auditions, and she booked two other gigs before getting "Sistas."
Back in June, around the time Bailey's billboard went viral, Perry asked that people not spend money on extravagant measures to get his attention and stick to auditioning.
In response to the billboard, Perry wrote on social media, "This is not the way to get my attention if you're looking for a role in one of my shows," Perry wrote in a Facebook post. "Please DON'T DO THIS, SAVE YOUR MONEY!! This is the third time that someone has done this. PLEASE STOP! To audition is FREE!! I'm sure you can use that money for a better purpose."
"Sistas" is set to air on BET in the fall.
