Fergie Goes Mafia

Friends of ours: Soprano Crime Family

HottieThis is mafia related since it involves The Soprano's. Plus, it gives me an excuse to run a photo of a hot chick on my site. It is the November sweeps month after all. Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie has been given an offer she can't refuse - to star in an episode of The Sopranos. Fergie - real name Stacy Ferguson - is swapping the music business for family business by playing an undercover cop working in Tony Soprano's seedy Bad-A-Bing strip club. She starts filming the episode early next year.

"Fergie can't believe her luck at landing this part - she's obsessed with The Sopranos," an insider told the Daily Mirror. "The producers thought she'd be perfect because she's got such a toned body and has no problems flaunting her flesh." She is also said to have been hitting the gym with a personal trainer to be "the hottest stripper Bad-A-Bing's ever seen".

Fergie apparently impressed Sopranos bosses after playing opposite John Travolta in the crime comedy Be Cool. She's also set to appear in the remake of 70s disaster flick The Poseiden Adventure, with Kurt Russell.

The TV role comes as the Black Eyed Peas - chart-toppers with Where is the Love? - tour their latest album Monkey Business in the US. Their latest single My Humps comes out in the UK next week.

There's also talk of Fergie going it alone next year and recording her first solo album. But will her Sopranos role prove to be a long-lasting career move? You'll have to tune in next year to find out...
