So the rumors appear to be true after all. Stacey Dash has officially announced that she is leaving 'Single Ladies' to spend time with her children. I think that's the equivalent of a politician leaving their post to 'spend more time with their family'. Hey it is what it is. Either she really couldn't deal with LisaRaye or she wanted to spend more time with her kids. Either way, she's gone.

Here is what she is saying about her decision:

“I have to be back in L.A. with my children right now and the ‘Single Ladies’ shooting location [in Atlanta] makes this impossible. I wish VH1 the best of luck with the show in maintaining the strong fan base we developed in Season 1.”

VH1 responded with their own statement, “VH1 respects Stacey’s decision and her commitment to what she feels is best for her family. We thank her for all of her hard work in making ‘Single Ladies’ a success right out of the gate, and we wish her nothing but the best in her future plans.”

Let's be honest, the acting on the show sucked, but the fashions that Val (Stacey Dash's character) rocked made the show tolerable for me. I really want to see how Stacy Littlejohn is going to work this out. Is she going to recast Val or is she going to write the character out of the storyline all together? And exactly what is she going to do about the cliff hanger on the season finale?

I see season 2 might actually be worth checking out just to see how Ms. Littlejohn navigates this.
