What would it take to be Stacey Dash?
That’s the question that the ever-lovable and never-aging 46-year-old actress plans to answer in her new book. Dash announced on her blog that she was “embarking on a new adventure.”
“I’m writing a “How To” book. It’ll be about me, my daily ritual and what I do every day to be Stacey Dash. It’ll be about what I’ve done in the past, the mistakes I’ve made and the lessons I’ve learned. The mistakes that I continue to make that drive me to moments of madness. I want to share what I’m going through in real-time to correct, reconcile and reinvent. You see I’m on a quest to live in love and joy come hell or high water. So, I’ll be writing about my future and how I’m moving forward in life using the knowledge I’ve gained from my past and wisdom I’m finding now. Also, I want to teach women and girls how to take care of themselves…and most importantly, how to love themselves. I believe that… is truly what is most important in life. In the process of writing, I’m hopeful that while I’m teaching you I’ll also be teaching myself.”
This comes on the heels of her departure from the VH1 sitcom, Single Ladies, last season. And though many of us are still missing her role as “Val,” there was also some tension on the set which may have aided in her decision to quit the show.
D.B. Woodside, who plays the handsome Malcolm on the show, had this to say about Dash in an interview with V-103’s Egypt Sherrod:
“I don’t want to cause any trouble, but I, for one, am happy she’s gone. It’s a much better place to be. It’s a much better set. I’m just going to keep it straight. I’m just going to keep it real. I am happy that she’s not there anymore. Last year was very difficult at times to go to set with all that tension that was going on with Stacey. So I wish her well. I’m sure she’s off doing something else.“
Well, indeed she is!
