'Single Ladies' Co-Star: "I'm Happy Stacey Dash is Gone, I'm Team LisaRaye"
So much for biting your tongue
When news surfaced late last year that Stacey Dash would be leaving her once-anticipated role on VH1's hit show 'Single Ladies' after just one season, rumors started flying as to why.
Before fans knew it, she'd been replaced by the younger, similar-looking Denise Vasi, and now that she's solidified her role past being the "newbie," co-stars are speaking out about the Dash's departure.
D.B. Woodside, who plays Malcolm, the love interest of Keshia (played by LisaRaye) recently appeared on V103 where he chatted with Egypt Sherrod about his former co-star:
On fan response to Stacey leaving and being replaced by Denise: You know, I think for some people…for some of the fans…it’s going to take a minute to get used to the fact that we had to make that switch. But we had to make that switch. Last year was very difficult at times to go to set with all that tension that was going on with Stacey. So I wish her well. I’m sure she’s off doing something else. But we love Denise! She’s fantastic, she’s talented, she’s gorgeous. She’s one of the nicest people that I’ve ever met in my life, And we just love her so. You know, it’s gonna take a minute, but I think that the fans will fall in love with her too.
On if Stacey was THAT hard to work: Yes, she was. I don’t want to cause any trouble, but I for one am happy she’s gone. It’s a much better place to be. It’s a much better set…I’m just going to keep it straight. I’m just going to keep it real. I am happy that she’s not there anymore.
On his reaction when he heard the news that Stacey was leaving: When I first heard that Stacey was leaving I went out and celebrated, and had some drinks…All I’ll say is this – is that LisaRaye is my girl. I love LisaRaye. LisaRaye and I have always had a blast on the show; and all I’ll say is I’m Team LisaRaye.
Well, damn. There you have it.
