QE loves Black Sitcom TV…

“Stacey Dash will probably always be best known for playing Alicia Silverstone’s BFF Dionne in the 1995 teen comedy Clueless. And that’s just fine by her. “It has been the best experience I have had in my entertainment career,” she says. “Nothing has topped it yet.”

While Silverstone went on to more big-screen roles in films like Batman & Robin, Dash stayed in character as Dionne for the TV adaptation of Clueless, which ran from 1996 to 1999. “I loved the character, and it was a good paycheck,” she laughs. “I mean, let’s be honest.”

The actress is equally blunt about how great her life is now. At 44, an age when most actresses struggle to find juicy parts, Dash has landed the starring role on VH1’s first hour long scripted series, “Single Ladies” (premiering May 30 at 9 p.m.). “When you enjoy what you do, you give the best that you can,” says the actress who jokes that she drinks unicorn blood to maintain her youthful glow. “I’m giving 150 percent.” Exec-produced by Queen Latifah, Ladies follows three best friends (Dash, LisaRaye McCoy, and Charity Shea) living in Atlanta and navigating complicated love lives. “To me, Stacey is a staple in our urban community,” says Latifah. “She crossed over long, long ago with Clueless. But she’s someone who’s always been beautiful and talented and special for women and men. The trice-divorced Dash was in talks to star on a reality show for VH1 about her dating life when she went in to audition for the role of Ladies Val, a former stylist thrusts back into the singles scene after her five-year relationship ends.

“I saw the first cut of the presentation tape of the reality show, says VH1 exec VP of original programming Jeff Olde. “At the same time, I got our talent team and our producers saying, ‘Stacey Dash came in and read today for Val and she blew us away’.” Dash whose post-Clueless career has included the film I Could Never Be Your Woman and NBC’s Celebrity Circus, decided the scripted drama was the way to go.

“The angels were on my side,”, Stacey says. I feel like I made the right [decision] doing this show.” And though she’s currently a single lady both on and off the screen, Dash hopes to find love again. Says the actress, “I believe in happily ever after”.”
