In the latest saga of the off-camera drama of VH1’s â€œSingle Ladiesâ€,Â LisaRaye took to Facebook and Twitter to speak on the rumors of Stacey Dash being fired. She posted the following message on her Facebook wall:
“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 donâ€™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!”
And as for her Twitter:
“Regarding the rumors swirling around â€œSingle Ladiesâ€Â all I know is that weâ€™ll be back with Season 2 and I have no knowledge of anything else.”
Stacey Littlejohn, writer and executive producer of â€œSingle Ladies, also chimed in via Facebook stating:
“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 LisaRayeâ€™s being accused of is completely the creation of uninformed, instigating internet gossip. Please donâ€™t buy into it. Letâ€™s just celebrate that we have a Season 2 coming!!!!”
Weâ€™ll be glad when all the bickering dies down and the final decision is out. With a show that has done quite well with the ratings, it would be a shame to see this show or any of its actors go down the drain.
