VH1′s “Single Ladies” returned for their second season Monday evening (May 28, 2012).
The “Single Ladies” of Atlanta return with one major change… Val (Stacey Dash) has been replaced with a brand new friend who could probably pass for her lil sister.
As you know, Dash quit the show after season 1 (or was fired, depending on who you ask) but Keisha (Lisa Raye McCoy) and April (Charity Shea) return with a brand new BFF, Raquel (Denise Vasi), who was billed as Dash’s “replacement.”
In case you missed it, check out a recap of the “Single Ladies” Season 2 premiere + watch full video of the first episode…
On the “Single Ladies” Season 2 premiere episode, entitled “Slave to Love,” Keisha (Lisa Raye) finds herself in hot water with the FBI for staying loyal to Malcolm. There’s another encounter with FBI Agent Winston (Rick Fox), who questions Keisha about her boyfriend’s whereabouts.
Keisha stays true to her boo and winds up in handcuffs as Winston puts the heat on her to give up information on Malcolm.
[Sidebar: My booski Antwan "Big Boi" Patton makes a cameo appearance as one of April's club bookings.)
Due to her newly found "celibacy,"April (Shea) begins having wet dreams (literally) about some random Mandingo looking male model. She's dating, but decides that instead of focusing on one man, she wants to remain single for a while.
The newest "single lady" in town, who just so happens to eerily resemble Val (aka the "missing link" ) hits Atlanta’s social scene to start a new chapter in her life after breaking off her engagement.
And in case you're wondering about Val (Dash)
Well she has run off to Milan, Italy in an attempt to get over the embarrassment of being a hoe and screwing up her long awaited marriage proposal.
Val sends her two BFFs an email stating that she's "never coming back... EVER!" and they hold a ceremony of sorts in the middle of her boutique as they pour out a lil liquor for their missing homie.
Did the premiere episode of Single Ladies (Season 2) meet your expectations?
How to you feel about the way Val's departure was addressed?
