A lot of rumors are circulating about the cast of Season 7 of "Army Wives," but we can confirm that there will be three new wives! "Pretty Little Liars" stars Torrey DeVitto will play Maggie Hall, an Army wife/truck driver (and former soldier) who is married to a staff sergeant. Maggie has a 10-year-old son and a 14-year-old daughter.
In addition, singer-songwriter Ashanti will join the cast as Latasha Durant, a strict mother of three whose main goal is to get as much fun as possible out of life...while keeping her kids and husband in line.
Finally, Broadway star Elle McLemore ("Bring It On: The Musical") comes to Fort Marshall as newlywed Holly Gordon, a sweet farm girl who is desperately homesick.
