Is Stacey Dash fired from Single Ladies? IDK, it’s such a simple question, but when you ask anyone involved with the Single Ladies project, you will not get a simple answer. “Yes or No,” would work for me, but instead of answering the question on whether or not Stacey Dash will be returning for a second season of Single Ladies, we get a lot of side notes in the response. What we do know is that Single Ladies is returning to Vh1 for a second season!!! We also know that “if” Stacey Dash was fired, it definitely didn’t have anything to do with Lisa Raye because she’s on vacation in Italy, and plus the network said so.

As everyone know I am in Italy vacationing. I was just made aware of the lies that are being spread by Mediatakeout and other blogs that like to create false stories. I was not even aware that Stacy Dash had been fired from Single Ladies. Furthermore if she has been fired that is a network decision. I don’t have the power to get her fired nor do I have any beef with her. Now im going to go continue enjoying my vacation!
