Stacey Dash Confirms “Single Ladies” Departure

It’s true. Stacy Dash was fired from left “Single Ladies.” (Insert obligatory sad face here.)

Yesterday, Dash, who played fashion boutique owner Val — one of the show’s lead characters — confirmed that she had left the show, not giving a reason as to why, which leads us to believe that the rumors about the “dispute” between her and her co-star LisaRaye McCoy … were either somewhat true, or all the way true. (Why can’t we all just get along?)

Stacy’s version of the “situation,” however, includes the fact that she’s a mother and she wants to be able to spend more time with her children. Read her statement below:

“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.”

VH1 has also issued a statement on the matter:

“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,” VH1’s first scripted original series, has been renewed for a second season, and there is no word just yet on who the network will replace Stacey Dash with.

Guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens from here…

Will you continue to watch the show now that Stacey Dash is gone?

    Stacy Dash leaving the show “Single Ladies”, is truly a disappointment, she was the reason why I watched the show in the first place. I think she’s an amazing actress, she’s absolutely stunning and classy. Whatever happen between her and Lisa Raye is stupid and I don’t believe that she’s leaving the show to be with her kids in L.A; because if that was the case, her KNOWING the show being filmed in Atlanta, she wouldn’t have taken the job in the first place; she could’ve just move the kids there with her. “I can’t possibly watch the show anymore”, this is how I feel emotionally, but will continue, because I love Queen Latifah and I’m her support. They could’ve just resolve things like two mature, fabulous women like they are and just be professionals and work the show. I love the show, I even watch the re-runs over again and I don’t get tired of them. Who is going to play Val now? Stacy was perfect for that role. But whatever, am done! “I’m so passed pissed, I can’t even see straingt”. Another thing too, I loved her fashion on the show, Stacy looks like a knock out in ANYTHING!! Just another damn reason and excuse for white people to think that blacks can’t be civil and professional; and sometimes I agree with them. “Stacey, I wish you the best of luck, you’re a great actress and I’m a huge fan, I would love to see you in films again and be an A list celebrity, like you deserve”.

  • THIS IS SOME REAL BULL S_ _ _ WHATS UP WITH THAT. I DONT BELIEVE SHE WOULD HAVE TAKEN THE JOB WITH OUT THINKING OF HER KIDS BEFORE HAND. LISA RAY IS BEHIND THIS. JUST LIKE SHE DID THE YOUNG LADY FROM ALL OF US. SHE ALWAYS WANT TO OUT SHINE THE NEXT FEMALE BUT SURELY MET HER MATCH WITH STACY. STACY WAS JUST AS PRETTY WAY MORE CLASSY AND SUCH A BETTER ACTRESS. I WILL NO LONGER WATCH THE SHOW. STACY WAS THE SHOW. LISA TO ME CAN NOT ACT. MAYBE THE GUYS APPREICIATE THE PLAYERS CLUB AND TO ME THAT DIDN’T TAKE MUCH ACTING. TRINA (THE RAPPER) COULD HAVE PLAYED THAT PART. LISA IS SO OVER RATED AND SUCH A HATER. THERE IS NO REASON THERE CANT BE 2 SISTERS ON THE SET MAKING A LIVING FOR THERE FAMILIES IF YOU DON’T GET ALONG DON’T GO TO THE PLAYGROUND WITH HER AFTER YOU SHOOT THE SHOW BUT FOR GOODNESS SAKE WHEN EVER THERE IS OPPORTUNITY (WHICH ISN’T OFTEN) FOR MORE THEN 1 AFRICAN AMERICAN FEMALE TO EVEN GET TO BE ON A NICE SHOW SUCH AS SINGLE LADIES ALLOW EVERYONE TO GET A PIECE OF THE PIE LISA NOT JUST YOUR SELFISH A – -. THE SHOW SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN RID OF HER. SHE WOULDNT BE MISSED CANT ACT ANYWAY, STACY WILL BE MISSED. GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR FUTURE.

    Lisa Ray is not the Star of this show Stacy Dash is. She made this show what it is today,with her classy way of dressing and talking I loved sunday night. I begin watching this show because of her. I have no interest in this show if she not in it. I was looking forward to the new season.I have no interest in this show if she’s not in it. It will become just a cheap black show with no class.

  • Simply me<3

    No I wont.
    I tried watching it and its not the same.
    Its not as good.
    The new girl is good but I cant get over the friendship Val, Keisha and April had.
    I feel like the story base of the show changed too much.

    Nope
    I tried too and it’s not the same
    Stacy Dash/Val is a one of a kid character and person.
    Her beauty, style, personality, independent mind, and intelligence is both admirable and what sets her aside from the other millions of skirts out there.
    I will therefore not support ‘Single Ladies’ until Val comes back
    I don’t care how JUST DO IT PLEASE!!!
