Actress Ashley Forrestier Stars in New OWN Reality Series "Put a Ring on It"
Forrestier, a graduate of Louisiana State University and youngest of eleven siblings, began her career in law. She returned home to New Orleans after graduation where she began working as a legal assistant. While she did enjoy the legal field, Forrestier had another calling…the performing arts. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina led the young actress to relocate to Houston, Texas, and it was there she was able to begin pursuing her dream of becoming an actress. "When I first moved to Houston, I was still working as a paralegal, and I was good at what I did, but I just wasn't happy until I started getting into theater. Soon, I was able to get an agent, and I began booking roles on TV, in films and commercials, and I've been able to continue to experience growth in my career over the years."
Put a Ring on It isn't Forrestier's first foray into reality television. In 2012, she was a contestant on the ABC reality show Glass House. Earlier this year, she decided to make the move to Atlanta for additional film and television opportunities which is where she received the casting notice for Put a Ring on It. "Several of my friends started sending me the audition notifications,"
Forrestier says it was just the dose of reality her relationship needed, "I felt like my relationship really wasn't going anywhere. I felt stuck. Sometimes, you get so comfortable you think there's no one else out there for you in the world, but that's not necessarily the case. It was very interesting to step outside my comfort zone and take control of finding my own happiness." Couples are also offered counseling and guidance to help them decide if it's time to put a ring on it or call it quits.
Tune in to find out if Ashley will stay in her current relationship or move on to find love with someone else! Put a Ring on It airs on Friday nights at 9 PM CST on OWN.
