Stacey Dash Leaves “Single Ladies”
Stacey Dash has confirmed that she will not be returning for a second season of VH1 and Queen Latifah’s “Single Ladies.”
The actress, 40, confirmed the news to Global Grind after speculation swirled for weeks that would not be renewing her contract.
She tells GG,
“I truly enjoyed playing Val on ‘Single Ladies’, but I have decided to leave the show. I have to be back in L.A. 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.”
VH1 has since responded and released a statement of their own saying,
“VH1 respects Stacey’s decision and her commitment to what she feels is best for her family. We thank her for all of her hard work in making ‘Single Ladies’ a success right out of the gate, and we wish her nothing but the best in her future plans.”
“Single Ladies” marks VH1’s first foray into the hour-long scripted series genre.
It is the brain child of the network and Queen Latifah’s Flavor Unit Entertainment.
No word on who may be replacing Dash.
