Stacey Dash leaves VH1 hit series “Single Ladies.” Can season 2 carry on without Val?

UPDATE DEC 6, 2011: I just posted an update about the newest cast member added in Stacey’s absence and confirmation that there’s a season two – CLICK HERE. ~Ifelicious

The rumors have been running rampant about Stacey Dash being unhappy on the set of VH1‘s scripted series “Single Ladies.”  Now, the news is official that she will not be returning.  In my opinion, Dash who plays the lead character Val and LisaRaye McCoy-Misick who plays Keisha are the only 2 carrying the show.  I think VH1 should cut their losses now because there’s no replacing Dash and the show doesn’t coagulate without her presence.

Here’s what Dash told Global Grind and was included in the blog post on VH1:

“I truly enjoyed playing Val on Single Ladies, but I have decided to leave the show. I have to be back in LA with my children right now and the ‘Single Ladies’ shooting location makes that impossible. I wish VH1 the best of luck with the show and in maintaining the strong fan base we developed in season one.”

That was a well scripted statement, but we all know that’s not the real reason.  What we don’t know exactly is the real reason either…well, not officially.  I read this on the Sandra Rose blog back on August 8, 2011:

“According to Jawn Murray, a search has been underway for Dash’s replacement for weeks. He tweeted that Dash clashed with co-star LisaRaye and other cast members of Single Ladies, which led to her dismissal from the show.”

Jawn Murray is a journalist whose tweet about the show a few weeks back fueled gossip columns.

  1. Nice post! Thanks for the pingback on my site.

  2. I do not watch the show but, from what I read Stacey was a popular and played a big part in the show. I didn’t even know there were 4 girls. I knew of three. It is a shame that they couldn’t all get along and enjoy the success. There are so many actresses who would love to be on a highly watched show.

    Stacey Dash was part of a team that made Single Ladies successful. However, it will be very difficult to replace her character. Her character brought balance to the cast of characters on the show. She is the most articulate actress on the show. I was proud to see someone of african american descent present her lines in the articulate way that she did. It was refreshing to see a black woman who does not display ghetto behavior and bring value to a show. Not to mention, she has good grammar. Whatever reason she will not return on the show, I will miss her and probably will not faithfully watch the show as I once did. Stacey Dash is very classy and is one of the most under rated actresses in the business.

  5. I agree with Herbal Essence . Stacy Dash will be missed. Hope she decides to come back

  6. I am really devastated by this, single ladies was something i looked forward to watching being a woman of color myself n single it was something i could relate to n also learn from. val will b missed but u know what they say the show must go on! Frankly as long as keisha is on it will always b a hit!!!

  7. bring back stacey this new girl sucks
