Stacey Dash, star of VH1’s ‘Single Ladies,’ is leaving the show.
‘I have to be back in L.A. with my children right now and the ‘Single Ladies’ shooting location [in Atlanta] makes this impossible,’ said Dash in a statement to GlobalGrind. ‘I wish VH1 the best of luck with the show in maintaining the strong fan base we developed in Season 1.’
VH1 in a statement said, ‘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.’
Dash is best known for her role Dionne Marie Davenport, the best friend of Cher (Alicia Silverstone) in the film ‘Clueless.’
Dash played fashion store owner Val, one of three female friends looking for love. The show, which also stars LisaRaye McCoy and Charity Shea, is the first scripted series on VH1, and has been renewed for a second season.
