VH1 has finally made their decision on who will replace actress Stacey Dash on “Single Ladies.”

After Stacey left the show a few months back, she left a huge void in the show’s cast. Well, according to Deadline.com, that void has been filled by former soap actress Denise Vasi … but not “exactly.”

Instead of playing Val (Stacey Dash’s old character), Vasi will star as an entirely new character. Apparently, Val will somehow be crossed out of the show.

Deadline reports:

Denise Vasi has been cast as a new lead on VH1?s hourlong comedy series Single Ladies. On the upcoming second season of the show executive produced by Queen Latifah, Vasi will star opposite co-leads LisaRaye McCoy and Charity Shea.

She fills a void left by the departure of Stacey Dash after the end of the first season. Vasi will play the new role of Raquel, a close friend of Keisha (McCoy) who is a savvy business woman from a prominent Southern family on a quest to discover passion.

“Denise is the perfect addition to the Single Ladies cast,” Queen Latifah said. “She is bringing a fun, new element to the show.”

“Single Ladies,” VH1’s first original scripted series, is a romantic comedy that follows the lives of a group of ‘Urban’ women — Keisha (LisaRaye), Raquel (Denise Vasi) and April (Charity Shea) — living life as an eligible ‘single lady’ in the city of Atlanta.

Last season, the show, created by Stacy A. Littlejohn and produced by Queen Latifah and others, averaged 2.8 million viewers. Production for the show’s upcoming second season is scheduled to begin in January to prepare for an early summer 2012 premiere.
