  1. Destiny Lightsy is the true embodiment of a Hollywood triple threat--she's an accomplished actress, singer and dancer. This summer, she'll add yet another credit to her impressive resume as she joins the MTV hit show "Yo Momma!" as Wilmer Valderrama's new co-host. "Yo Momma!" is a no-holds-barred competition where amateur comedians face off to unload an avalanche of humiliation on one another for a cash prize. Lightsy will showcase her comedic flair as the cast heads south to Altanta, Georgia for season three.

    A student of renowned choreographer, Fatima Robinson, who she met at a national commercial audition, Lightsy has mastered that unique style of dance movement. She's worked with high profile entertainers such as Usher, Jennifer Lopez, Missy Elliot, Jamie Foxx, Christina Aguilera, Chris Brown, Ciara, and her idol, the late Aaliyah. In 2004, her dancing skills landed her featured dancer spots in 20th Century Fox's "Fat Albert: The Movie" and Sony Pictures' "You Got Served." Lightsy can also be seen in David La Chapelle's 2005 documentary "Rize," a film that chronicles the practice of vividly extreme dance forms such as "krumping" and "clowning" in south central Los Angeles.

    Other credits include co-hosting the NBC series "Goosehead," spots on "MAD TV" and Comedy Central's "Mind of Mencia." She has also appeared on numerous television specials (Jamie Foxx "Unpredictable" for NBC) and award shows (Vibe Awards, BET Awards, Soul Train Music Awards). On stage, she has played the roles of Estella in "West Side Story," Aunt Polly in "Tom Sawyer," and Princess Jasmine in "Aladdin."
