Actress Stacey Dash has joined Fox News as a contributor, the network announced Thursday.
Dash is best known for her work in the 1995 film "Clueless," in which she played Dionne Davenport, best friend to Alicia Silverstone's Cher Horowitz. More recently, she starred for one season in the VH1 series "Single Ladies" and also showed up as herself in the Bravo reality series "Million Dollar Decorators."
In 2012, the actress made news when she endorsed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Twitter, prompting a backlash from some Obama supporters online. In an appearance on "Piers Morgan Tonight" to discuss the reaction, Dash, who is of Barbadian and Mexican heritage, said she had chosen Romney "not by the color of his skin but the content of his character."
She later received a phone call of support from Romney's running mate, Paul Ryan. After the GOP ticket's electoral loss, Dash issued a lengthy statement that was published by TMZ.
