V Exclusive: Stacey Dash, LisaRaye, Lauren London To Star In Scripted VH1 Show

For the past few years VH1 has been caking off of celeb-reality shows such as Flavor of Love, The Salt-N-Pepa Show, and For The Love of Ray J, but LisaRaye McCoy and Stacey Dash shared with VIBE that they are both starring alongside Lauren London in VH1's first-ever scripted series, Single Ladies

Written by award-winning actress and MC, Queen LatifahSingle Ladies, which begins four-day rehearsals and filming in Atlanta this week, revolves around the romantic relationships of three friends and is meant to fulfill fans of The CW's Girlfriends and HBO's Sex In The City.

"When Girlfriends got off the TV we didn’t have anything else to relate to," says McCoy."This would be something else as a series so we can do more and be a little bit more risqué."

Dash—who was first vying for a reality show with VH1—plays a celebrity stylist who is experiencing autonomy for the first time.

"My character is very similar to my own life because I’ve never been single. Literally, since I’ve been 17 years old. She’s never been married, the character than I'm playing, whereas I’ve been married three times, so that’s the difference," Dash says. "It’s a really good script."

McCoy's character, a video vixen, is a bit more experienced than Dash's.

"She doesn’t have one of anything nor does she believe in having one man. She believes in dating and being able to explore her possibilities. She's much like Samantha of Sex in the City," explains the Player's Club star. "Very straight up and honest. She’s the one that has that spunk, I'd like to say that she’s the slut of the three."

McCoy, currently starring in her own reality show, TV One's The Real McCoy, also mentioned to VIBE that London plays a younger, semi-shy character married to an NBA player. Although London will be a recurring character in the show, her rep confirms that the role is small.

Tomi Lahren On Cardi B's 'Dog-Walking' Threat: 'I Would Never Get Away With That'

Tomi Lahren paid a visit to Fox & Friends, where she discussed her Twitter feud with Cardi B. Last week after the "I Like It" rapper posted a video discussing the partial government shutdown, the right-wing pundit took to Twitter to write out her views on Cardi's comments.

"Looks like @iamcardib is the latest genius political mind to endorse the Democrats. HA! Keep it up, guys! #MAGA2020," she wrote, which prompted Cardi to write that she will "dog walk" her.

“I just like to point out the left’s hypocrisy because can you imagine if I would threaten to dog walk Cardi B — or anyone else for that matter — as a conservative, as a Trump supporter?” Lahren said during her appearance on the show. “I would never get away with that but they’re able to do it, and the left applauds it... you can see that there are leftists with verified accounts who are not only laughing at the fact of me being ‘dog walked’ — they’re tweeting out memes showing me in a leash and a collar with Cardi B walking me. Beyond that, they are actually saying, ‘Yeah, she would hurt you, she would beat you up — I wish we could start a GoFundMe page so we can watch your teeth get knocked out.’"

She also criticized U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who wrote on Twitter that people shouldn't underestimate people from The Bronx (where she and Cardi hail from).

“Well, I’m not surprised at anything Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says, but again, I’m also impressed the way the left does the mental gymnastics to justify it,” she said. “...these are elected representatives who are endorsing and saying the same thing. So, you know, it’s really puzzling and troubling.”

Friendly reminder: after over a month, the government is still shut down.

Cardi B Will Reportedly Have Her Own Las Vegas Residency

Cardi B is reportedly getting her first Las Vegas residency. According to The Associated Press, the “Money” rapper will have a residency at the Palms Casino Resort in anticipation of the debut of its newest complex, KAOS.

“Above and Beyond, G-EAZY, Kaskade and Skrillex are among the other artists who will have exclusive residencies at the complex,” the report reads. KAOS will reportedly open in April. “KAOS is part of the Palms’ $690 million renovation that features state-of-the-art technology designed to enhance performances including a rotating 360-degree DJ booth.”

This news comes just a week after the announcement of Drake’s reported residency at the XS Nightclub at Wynn Las Vegas. The musical reportedly “inked a 12-show deal over the next two years."

Cardi B has shown no signs of slowing down. She is currently nominated for five Grammy awards, and she is set to perform at the Bonnaroo Music Festival. She also made headlines recently for her thoughts about the current partial government shutdown, clapping back at detractors like Tomi Lahren.

"You’re so blinded with racism that you don’t even realize the decisions the president you root for is destroying the country you claim to love so much," she wrote on Twitter with a statement aimed at the political pundit.

Illinois Man Awarded $1.25 Million After Cops Tackled Him For Stealing His Own Car

A former Northwestern University doctoral student was awarded $1.25 million after police tackled the then 25-year old assuming he was trying to steal a car that was actually his own.

The Associated Press reports Evanston City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz confirmed the settlement amount had been reached Wednesday. (Jan. 23) Crosby was an engineering major in 2015 when the incident occurred.

Crosby’s attorney Timothy Touhy said his client was attempting to repair something with his car when a white woman watching called local police to report what she thought was a robbery.

The unidentified woman then followed Crosby in his car as he left his apartment and headed to a science building on Northwestern's campus, giving police his location.

Crosby reportedly exited his vehicle with his hands up but was immediately tackled by law enforcement when he didn't obey orders to get on the ground. Cops later determined Crosby was the owner of the vehicle but charged him with resisting arrest.

A spokesman for the Evanston police said the use of force was justified at the time because officers assumed a theft was in progress. Crosby was the victim of knee strikes and open-handed strikes.

A judge threw out the charges.

“It’s his hope that as a result of this case, that all of us begin a discussion on implicit bias and begin to recognize it and begin to discuss it between yourselves and your friends,” said Steven Yonover, who represented Crosby in the case.
