On the other hand

Yes, I heard that STACEY DASH may be leaving SINGLE LADIES soon.
If they replace her with MEGAN GOOD will the series be doomed?

Yes- I said Megan Good. I read of rumors that I hope not to take to heart,
HelloBeautiful.com implied speculations that she just might get the part.

But a little bit more research on the Google front page
revealed words from Megan G. that dispel the rumors away.

Global Grind asked the blunt question and Tale Tela then told it to me,
citing: Meagan G hasn’t talked to anyone about replacing Ms. Stacey D.

Stacey D. seems to be leaving because working long distance can be rough.
Her children reside in Los Angeles and the show’s taping is in Atlanta.

Rumors also implied Stacey’s split is in part because of diva antics.
I hate to hear of “a change”, because the show (as it sits) is a hit.

This isn’t the first time – nor will it be the last
that I dig a show with a negotiable cast. 🙂

Remember I’m a daytime soap lover
and Y&R is an evolving cast changing mother.

So Obama is on a road trip – talking infrastructure & J-O-B’s
while newly elected offices are being won by the GOP.
One replaced Rep.Weiner and one took a seat in AZ.
Ooo Wee

What in the (political world) is really going on?
We’d rather defeat ourselves before facing what’s really wrong.

The Tea Party does not like this president and they have the finances to back their voice.
The GOP is not for WE but for the HAVE’S versus the HAVE NOT’S party choice.

When you don’t have a sick loved one – it’s so easy to say:
“If you don’t have insurance –> your bad, now pass away.”

Please let me tell you that karma has a specific way
of catching up with you on a similar day.

Though on the end of needing mercy will then be you,
And the world will not care – but carry on as we do
waiting for the obituary: the last respects of you.
Caring not for your brother — is not what AMERICANS do.

What’s up with STACEY DASH these days

Stacey Dash & Lisa Raye McCoy in SINGLE LADIES

From Clueless Teen to SINGLE LADY

Sixteen years after making a splash in the teen-com Clueless, STACEY DASH is finally getting her star turn — though she almost ended up on a reality show instead. — By Tim Stack

Another piece of INSIGHT into Black Sitcom TV…this time we focus on STACEY DASH and ‘what she’s doing’ these days. Did you catch the series premier of SINGLE LADIES? It was hot. It has all of the ingredients and insight as offered in SHOWTIMES “The Borgias”. lol! Tittilation in direct relation. Tim Stack authored the article in Entertainment Weekly [#1155 May 20,2011] to bring us up to date on STACEY DASH and where she is right now.

Enjoy the transcribed read.
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”.”

Clueless was a big hit and Single Ladies is another one!
May she find happiness, love and reap a paycheck of worthy sums.

VH1, Jeff Olde & Latifahs scripted fun!

BLACK TV Sitcom Stuff Pt. 1

In Griot, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows on May 30, 2011 at 1:03 pm

Recently I read a great article in Entertainment Weekly called:

“The Rise & Fall and Rise Again of Black TV”

Such a befitting title. Isn’t it? So good, I had to re-type it for peeps that don’t receive the monthly magazine in print. READING is fundamental and KNOWLEDGE is golden::

Entertainment Weekly — Two years ago broadcast TV officially got out of the African-American sitcom business. The CW canceled the long-running Girlfriends in 2008, and the following year it yanked both Everybody Hates Chris and The Girlfriends spin off, The Game— also known as the last two successful black-eccentric shows on network television. ••►But today something is saving black TV from becoming as outmoded as Bill Cosby’s acrylic sweaters: basic cable, where scripted programming is experiencing explosive growth. In January, BET revived The Game to a record-breaking 7.7 million viewers–which is three times the audience it got on The CW and, in fact, twice the size of anything on the teen-skewing network now. (Sorry Gossip Girl.) The success of The Game and BET’s Queen Latifah produced romantic comedy Let’s Stay Together, which also premiered in January, has spurred the network to develop Reed Between the Lines, a new fall sitcom starring Girlfriends Tracy Ellis Ross and The Cosby’s Show’s Malcolm-Jamal Warner. Meanwhile, VH1 has joined up with Queen Latifah, who will be exec-producing its new dramedy Single Ladies (debuting in May 30), starring Clueless’ Stacy Dash.

In reality, this new generation of African-American-focused scripted TV can be traced to TBS’ success in 2007 when it acquired House of Payne from the proven brand of Tyler Perry. (Some 222 episodes later, the network recently announced it would be ending Payne but staying in the Perry business with For Better or Worse, an adaptation of his film Why Did I Get Married?) The reason for the big ratings and latest development rush is simple: pent-up demand. “I’ve had plenty of people say to me that it’s great to see something on TV that represents them”, says Jacque Edmonds-Cofer, exec producer of Let’s Stay Together”. “It’s also important for people to see that every African American woman is not a Real Housewife”. Adds VH1’s exec VP of original programming, Jeff Olde, “I think our shows should reflect the country we’re living in– go, Barack and Michelle! We’re thrilled that we have a large number of African-American women who watch us, and quite frankly, we’re always looking for new stories to tell.

Both BET and VH1 set their programming in response to direct viewer demands. BET first ran The Game in reruns, which sparked an onslaught of fans begging for the network to revive the show. VH1 initially shot Single Ladies as a TV movie, but market testing on the project garnered a “crazy ridiculous response,” Olde says. “[The marketers] SAID, ‘Not only do they want you to make this a series but the audience will actually be mad at you if they don’t see where these characters go next’.”

The ratings for the black-centric shows that have already premiered bear this out.

This concludes Part 1.and wouldn’t you know,
you don’t want to miss the conclusion — because it’s good to go…
