Another day, another reality TV show star trying to make the Hollywood crossover. Tanisha Thomas of Bad Girls Club Season 2 fame posted a picture to her social media outlets a few days ago intimating that she had been approached to be on Orange is The New Black Season 3.

Some of the people who have tried are actually doing pretty well for themselves. Check 'em out!
