And after Stacey’s co-star Lisa Raye took time away from her Italian vacation to comment on the situation, it was apparent to everyone that the story was way more than just a rumor.
Well unfortunately it appears there was some truth to all that internet chatter.
Dash is officially leaving ‘Single Ladies’ and has issued a statement regarding her departure…
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 also issued a statement, which reads:
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. (source)
In my previous post, I asked if you would miss Stacey if she left the show and many of you stated that a show without Stacey would be no show… apparently VH1 feels otherwise.
Who can possibly fill Stacey Dash’s stilettos?
