LisaRaye Defends Herself Against Accusations That She Got Stacey Dash Fired From Single Ladies


Fans of Single Ladies have been abuzz since last week when a rumor leaked that one of the show’s stars, Stacey Dash, had been fired. Rumors of tension on the set abounded, but in order to quash rumors, co-star LisaRaye McCoy issued a statement on her Facebook page. In her post, she writes: “As everyone know I am in Italy vacationing. I was just made aware of the lies that are being spread by Mediatakeout and other blogs that like to create false stories. I was not even aware that Stacy Dash had been fired from Single Ladies. Furthermore if she has been fired that is a network decision. I don’t have the power to get her fired nor do I have any beef with her. Now im going to go continue enjoying my vacation!”

Show creator Stacy A. Littlejohn also responded to the rumors, writing “LisaRaye is a very strong woman and we love her, but she does not have that kind of power, nor at any time did she seek to influence any casting decisions. Furthermore, no cast member of Single Ladies has the power to get another cast member fired. The 6th-grade back-stabbing that LisaRaye’s being accused of is completely the creation of the uninformed, instigating internet gossip. Please don’t buy into it. Let’s just celebrate that we have a season two coming!!!!!”

Dash herself has not publicly responded to the rumors, and VH1’s staying mum on the topic as well, stating that “no casting decisions have been made for the second season of Single Ladies.”
