After Stacey Dash elected to leave her TV series, VH1’s ‘Single Ladies,’ there were plenty of debates as to who would replace her on the show and star opposite LisaRaye McCoy and Charity Shea.
According to Deadline.com, Producer Queen Latifah and creator Stacy Littlejohn have chosen Denise Vasi, who recently starred in the daytime drama ‘All My Children’ and the film ‘What’s Your Number.’
Vasi will play the new role of Raquel, a close friend of Keisha (McCoy) who is a savvy business woman from a prominent Southern family on a quest to discover passion. “Denise is the perfect addition to the Single Ladies cast,” Queen Latifah said. “She is bringing a fun, new element to the show.”
Single Ladies, VH1′s first hour-long scripted series, is a romantic comedy series about Keisha, Raquel and April (Shea) – best friends with different philosophies on love, sex and relationships, proving not all women have the same desires.
Back in August, Dash announced that she would not return to the second season, 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.”
Season 2 of “Single Ladies” will begin production in January and will premiere in early summer.
