Stacey Dash Leaves VH1's 'Single Ladies'
1 year ago
Says she wants to return to L.A. for her children
In not-so-shocking news, actress Stacey Dash has left the hit scripted series Single Ladies on VH1.
In a statement released to GlobalGrind, Dash says she wants to focus more on raising her children in Los Angeles:
"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 released a statement, 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."
Leaving a hit show when it's just been renewed for a second season doesn't sound right. Whether the rumors are true that she didn't get along with co-star LisaRaye McCoy, it seems like Dash is walking away from a role that re-ignited her career.
