Okay, Single Ladies fans, the news you’ve all been waiting for/dreading is here. In an exclusive statement to Global Grind, Stacey Dash has revealed that she is not returning the VH1 hit series. The rumors of Dash’s departure and supposed behind-the-scenes drama ran rampant as the show’s first season came to an end, and today marks the first time that Dash has publicly spoken about them. Her full statement is below. As always, we look forward to everything you have to say about this in the comments.
“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 responded, 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.”
