"I am thrilled about Single Ladies… as Queen Latifah is an icon and a pioneer. It's a blessing to be on her team and VH1 is the perfect place for us to shine," said Stacey Dash.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 21, 2011
Stacey Dash lands a starring role In Queen Latifah’s drama series Single Ladies airing May 30th on VH1.
Single Ladies, VH1’s first venture into the hour-long scripted series genre, is a new romantic comedy series about Val, Keisha, and April – three best friends with different philosophies on sex and relationships, proving not all women have the same desires. VH1 describes the show as “a modern, sexy series set in the world of Atlanta fashion, music and celebrity that will constantly explore which woman has the right approach to relationships.” Queen Latifah remarked, “Single Ladies is a sexy and smart show… something that we feel TV has been missing for far too long and we knew VH1 was the perfect home for it.”
Stacey Dash, who made a splash in the 1995 hit movie Clueless with Alicia Silverstone, is excited to be a part of the innovative new show. She told BlackVoices.com, "I am thrilled about Single Ladies… as Queen Latifah is an icon and a pioneer. It's a blessing to be on her team and VH1 is the perfect place for us to shine."
In Single Ladies, Dash plays Val, an ambitious, aspiring fashion mogul and celebrity stylist who believes in fate, romance and finding that special someone to be with forever. “My character is very similar to my own life because I’ve never been single until recently. Literally, since I’ve been 17 years old. It’s a really good script.”
Reports of some not-so-beautiful behavior among the cast on the set of Single Ladies surfaced earlier this week when a source told Us Weekly that Dash and co-star LisaRaye McCoy had an on-set blowup; but, another on-set source spoke out in Dash’s defense saying, “I was on set, and it didn’t go down that way at all! People had been working for 15 hours a day, and tempers flared but there was no profanity. Stacey is a professional and Lisa kept forgetting her lines and I think after many hours, it led to some tension, but there was no cussing by Stacey.”
Regardless of whether the drama remains in front of the camera or behind the scenes, shows like Single Ladies are definitely creating a buzz and are poised to take VH1 into scripted television with style.
Single Ladies premieres on VH1 May 30th at 9pm.
