"Single Ladies" star LisaRaye, who is currently on tour in Italy (no doubt spending that "Single Ladies" cash), was forced to interrupt her vacation yesterday to respond to the backlash she received from Stacey Dash fans on Facebook.

As you know, there are unsubstantiated rumors circulating about Dash's abrupt termination from the popular VH1 show. LisaRaye posted this message to 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 don'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!

Stacy Littlejohn, the show's principal writer and executive producer, also responded to the grilling on LisaRaye's Facebook:

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 LisaRaye's being accused of is completely the creation of uninformed, instigating internet gossip. Please don't buy into it. Let's just celebrate that we have a Season 2 coming!!!!

But why would anyone think LisaRaye had anything to do with Dash's dismissal from the show when LisaRaye is just a cast member herself? If people on Facebook are this dumb I'm glad I don't have a Facebook page.

Anyway, LisaRaye tweeted these photos from her vacation. Enjoy!

    I never really cared about that rumor enough to believe it or to not believe it in the first place...I don't see how they will continue the next season without Stacey, but I'm sure we'll all see what happened eventually...

    @feline If they fired Stacey I think they are going to replace her and keep the role

  • !*LaKErCHiC@*!

    EH :shrug: OKAY THEN

  • ValerieB1

    Dont care for the show, the acting, Never really cared for Lisa Raye

    Did her and Stacey Dash really fight during filming?

  • Mamacita

    @Daisy Me too! I need to get out of the country soon!

    Well, Stacey Littlejohn didn't deny that Dash was fired, so it may be true... :think: . I hope not because I actually like her character and the clif hanger on the finale will make for an interesting next season.

    Beautiful pics!

  • Mother Jefferson

    Did we really need to see all seven of those pics of her on vacation? :coffee:

    Really? Seriously?

  • flsun99

    LisaRaye is not the best actress but that damn Stacy Dash is horrible! I like the show and love LisaRaye's character. I think they will recast and get someone else to pay Val (we were left hanging). Also, while on hiatus I hope THE ENTIRE CAST gets with an acting coach to ensure their acting improves next season. JMO.

  • Al-Ameera

    Has it been confirmed that Stacy was actually fired or and I late?

    Okay, so I was totally thrown off by the word "tour"...I was like, on tour? doing what swinging from pole to pole like Spiderman at a string of Italian strip clubs?? :shrugs: I was just confused as to why the hell she would be touring...

    But then I realized Sandra used that word in lieu of "vacation"...my bad.

    Back to not caring about these two non-acting actors...

    I agree. Everybody be dogging the hell outta LisaRaye for her lack of acting skills, but please let us not graze over the fact that Stacy Dash is just as bad, if not worse...

  • http://pearlswindow.com Carrington

    How can one horribly bad actress have enough power to get another horribly bad actress anything other than a recommendation on what acting schools NOT to attend?

    That show might actually have some "umph" and longevity as the black Sex in the City (I can honestly see how black women would find some entertainment value in this show when there are really no black shows on television other than "reality")

    But can they not cast from high school plays?

    Lisa Raye is "Lisa Raye" in Player's Club, she was Lisa Raye in "All of Us", She's Lisa Raye in her reality show and she's Lisa Raye in Single Ladies... she ain't even TRYING to act.

  • TruGemini

    :rofl:

    LisaRaye stars as "LisaRaye" in 'LisaRaye'

  • AirForceGirl

    Am I the only one who is tired of seeing Lisa Raye in white? Damn, get over it already! She actually looks good in the colors she wears on the show. Sheeeesh!

  • http://pearlswindow.com Carrington

    Lisa Raye needs some diction classes to begin with, that "hood" undertone in her speech, even when she is TRYING to portray an educated character is distracting and laughable.

  • BigCityGirl

    The word of her firing is kinda off....all the "official" people who would know are dancing around the subject. I believe Stacy is in contract negoiaitons and if she gets through them she'll be back...if not..we'll see a replacement..... AND yes...Lisa Raye is ENJOYING that #SingleLadies money!!!!!..LOL

    I wish she would stop that dumb $hit too. She's fine already, why do you need a "thing" in order to stand out? And especially white. I don't care what you say, everything don't look hot in white, most times, white looks cheap, so you have to be careful and most of her $hit looks like it comes from one of those places you get your pink oil moisturizer, hair, jewelry, shoes, outfit and pay your cell phone bill all in the same store.

    Right! But she's not AS bad as Lisa Raye. Rosie Perez had that horrible thick New York Puerto Rican accent and she said she HAD to work to get rid of it in order to get jobs and it's working for her for the most part.

  • flsun99

    The acting on the show is like watching a soap opera. Ridge on Bold & the Beautiful have been giving his audience bad acting for over 25 years, but he is one of the most popular characters on the show.

    Stacy Dash plays the same "clueless" character in every movie. She looks and sounds the same. I also have to agree with Carrington, Lisa Raye sounds, acts and looks the same in every movie & TV show as well. I'm just glad she is employed now so we can stop hearing about what that ex-husband didn't give her.

    Stacey/Val annoyed me on the show she has not evolved since Clueless to me. I only liked some of her clothes.

    I had to log in for this one...I always say that Stacey Dash's acting is friggin horrible. All of them actually and the white girl is soooo outta place. LisaRaye truly is always LisaRaye...smh...u right Vivica Fox is the same way...but sadly we no longer have Living Single (Which I'm guessing Queen was trying to remake).

  • http://pearlswindow.com Carrington

    The show would be decent, but it's casted like Tyler Perry chose everybody - especially the men, who can't act, but are CLEARLY on the show because they LOOK the part. *side eye*

    But don't worry, Lisa Raye WILL get "best actress" from the NAACP awards, believe that.

  • MsToot

    No No Carrington Lisa and educated do not go in the same sentence.
    What has Stacey done besides clueless?

  • http://chokolatemilk.blogspot.com Choco aka Hippie

    Lisa vacation looks HAWT and kudos for having a good time!

    The whole show is stupid the cast is ill fitting the storyline a huge effn :yawn: and the reading lines from a teleprompter becuz it is not acting SUCKS!

    :waves: SR FAM :yahoo:

  • Daisy

    The best acting LisaRaye did was on Hawthorne a few wks ago when she slapped the FIYAH out of ole girl!!! She did that I said she pic Rocsi and went IN! :lol:

  • WUTWUZMISSIN!

    :wail: There's a SECOND SEASON OF THIS TRAGEDY!!!

  • SouthernPrincess

    Seriously, who is checking for LisaRaye???
    Her personality is hood...she calls it keep it real but I disagree. Its tacky and ghetto.
    She will sell her soul to the devil to live a "lavish" life
    She married the PM of T&C for money and status and we all see where that got her.
    LisaRaye is an great example of "that bish aint ish"

  • Ump!!!!

    I just don't understand why they cant have an all Black cast like sex in the city it seems like every time it's an black show they have to add a white in it. :(

  • pointhimout

    Does Stacey Littlejohn know that show is underwhelming? I'm just one viewer though. We move on.

    Does she have a camera crew with her in Italy? U know LisaRaye shows up like the entire countryside should know who she is.

  • xamayca 2 di bone

    LOL now this is funny...I still think Lisa had something to do with it (probably Kang Tifah side piece) and I STILL want to know why Stacey got fired...shes like the main character isnt she? :shrugs: oh well what can you do. It wont be the same without her tho

  • xamayca 2 di bone

    Oh and Italy is beautiful...lived there for 2 years and loved it. Food is extra BANGIN too

    @40, so true, so true. Seinfeld and Cheers plus several other all white shows barely put a black on as a guest. It wasn't until the final season I believe that Friends had Aisha Tyler as a guest. That show was on for 10 years. Ten years and not one black person? But the minute we come out with a show, there's a white face in the cast. Single Ladies, Eve, A Different World (Marissa Tomei was on the very first season).

    Whatever happened to that DL reality show of those guys in Atlanta? I think they were going for "A List" type vibe. I dont think it faired too well for them. No one picked up the show????

    LOL. Ridge sure can't act. I only watch that show if I take a early lunch. A few yrs ago I noticed Ridge had gray hair, it looked horrible. I love salt and pepper, but not on him. Ridge makes every word he says be a cliff hanger.

    That is so the truth. I cannot stand these black shows having these random white people in them. Down to the reality shows. Real Housewives of Atlanta....why is Kim there? In the LA version and several others, there are no black people associated with any of those shows. Look at HawThorne (however they spell it) why the white people? Look at The Game...why is Kelly there? That's the reason I did not watch The Game when it was on CW. I decided to give it a chance and caught up with the episodes (not too long ago after they brought it back), but stop watching after Derwin knocked the chicken head Janae up and by the way he treats Melanie.

    Overall, the black shows that put the token white person in it so that they can get a few white audience members, is a #fail in my book. The white shows can care less if a black person on their shows...check out most shows on the CW and find out.

  • CookieMonsterZ

    I'm guessing that I am the only one who liked the finale. It semi-fills my SATC void. I am looking forward to Season 2 and I hope Stacey will still be on it. Otherwise, it will get even messier trying to remove her character or if someone else plays Val then it will really look like a soap. That Malcom/Keyshia twist should have started a little sooner in my opinion.

  • CookieMonsterZ

    I see everyone's argument about the token member of the cast, but I definitely understand the placement. Val and April only became friends through Darryl. Inter-racial couple are very common. As for The Game, Kelly was married to a bi-racial husband. It's realistic to me.

    Let me just be brutally honest and say that since the announcement was made about Stacy Dash being fired I have lost what little interest I did have in the show entirely.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0 SnootyPooty

    @Dmisses I have lost interest as well

  • Peachizz

    I watched the show, but I really haven't gotten into it, One monkey don't stop no show, but it sure won't be the same either!
    I like Lisa Raye, but i think Stacy Dash is a better actress in general, things sure won't be the same!
    SN, I wonder if Stacy Dash get to keep those great outfits!
    Who knows, them(Queen L) may actually be doing her a favor, now she can get some revelant work in Hollywood!

  • Lodak

    Single Ladies will be fine without Stacey Dash. Hopefully they find a replacement who can act. Cosign on the person that said "if LisaRaye upstages you, than you suck."

    Been loving LisaRaye since she went in on that girl on HawthoRNe. I wanted to slap her myself, glad they got a hood chick to do it. Perfect casting!
