Stacey Dash Says She Left ‘Single Ladies’ To Be With Her Children


A few weeks back, rumors hit the internet saying that Stacey Dash had gotten fired from VH1’s Single Ladies. Well now, it’s definitely been confirmed seeing that Stacey’s released a statement to Global Grind stating,

“I truly enjoyed playing Val on ‘Single Ladies’, but I have decided to leave the show. I have to be back in L.A. with my children right now and the ‘Single Ladies’ shooting location makes that impossible. I wish VH1 the best of luck with the show and in maintaining the strong fan base we developed in season one.”

Interesting statement to release especially being that Stacey is a veteran in the acting industry. I would have thought that Stacey would take into consideration things such as her family before accepting the role. VH1 released a statement as well

“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.”


Hmm…seems like a nice way to let her go.


I’m sure Stacey was concerned with her public image so perhaps she managed 1to work something out with VH1 so that she could still walk away with a squeaky clean image.


What are your thoughts on this? Do you think she really got fired and she’s just using the family reason as a cover?

  1. I think she’s using family as an excuse. As you said, she’s been in the game long enough to know how to prepare for a job. There’s definitely more to this story…

  2. I have a feeling there’s more to this story, she’s hiding something. She knew what she was getting into when she accept the job.

  3. Excuse…When have you ever seen her with her family? I haven’t. LOL they let her go just like they do everyone else. Just because the Game came back doesn’t mean every show starring people of color is safe. Hopefully she finds something new & close to her “family”.

  4. Hate to see Stacy go. I think that was a standard industry statement, everyone knows its more to it. She had the best storyline and made the show.

  5. I truly enjoyed her character on Single Ladies. I thought she played it well, and I’m truly disappointed! Aye it’s lfe…!

  6. her kids are both older not like they are little kids unless they can’t function normally but she did a whole season of that show not that I watched it but to me this seems to be her pattern she makes a little money then she either quits or gets fired then she marries some rich white dude and then gets divorced its what she does.

  7. Im a mother and i know how hard it is to be away from family. Maybe the days were longer than she initially expected. You dont know her life so you cant judge from the outside. how fair is it for her kids that she is never there? You needed ur parents and so do they… family first career second. She has money acting is a hobby. I would never neglect my child for my job. Dont fault her for being a great mother and wife.
