Denise Vasi Replaces Stacey Dash for “Single Ladies”

Looks like one monkey really doesn’t stop the show. After Stacey Dash made a quick exit from VH1 scripted show Single Ladies, talks of her replacement swarmed (these were our picks!). However, Deadline reports that All My Children star Denise Vasi is set to replace Dash’s “Val” with her own “Raquel.” The Brooklyn native will play a savvy, southern business woman looking for love in ATL. She connects to the semi-established story line as a close friend of LisaRaye’s role as “Keisha.”

Executive producer Queen Latifah says this of the recent changes:

“Denise is the perfect addition to the Single Ladies cast. She is bringing a fun, new element to the show.”

Although many are still warming up to the show, it sounds like we can assume this is for the best. Vasi will co-lead alongside McCoy and Charity Shea on the hour-long show that is expected to being its filming in January and premiere next summer.

Did they make a good decision?
