Stacey Dash, who most people recognize as Dionne from the cult classic 1995 comedy, Clueless, is starring in a new hour-long scripted series for VH1 called Single Ladies.
But the part-Mexican actress tells Latina.com exclusively that when it comes to relationships, life does not imitate art. Asked how her relationship is going with her current man, Dash told us, “fantastic.” The 45-year-old actress (who's been married three times) also told us she’s only ever dated white men— until now. “All my husbands have been white," says Dash. “That’s not true anymore,” she added with a laugh.
In Single Ladies, (premiering Monday, May 30 at 9 p.m on VH1), Dash plays Val, a girl who has never really been single before. “She’s gone from one relationship to another and she’s desperate to be in love,” explains Dash. “She’s desperate to be married, to have a family, to do all these things. That’s really interesting to me [because] I’ve never been single before,” she notes.
Dash says her role in the movie is teaching her important lessons about love. “I’m learning the joy of trusting,” she explains. “The joy of being wide-eyed, of being open. The greatest thing that I’m learning is to have faith and trust. There can be the “happily ever after.”
That may be true of her relationship, but recent reports have surfaced claiming that Dash is showing her costars on Single Ladies anything but love. A source tells Us Weekly that Dash has been acting out on the set of the new Queen Latifah-produced show and that she recently ran off set screaming, "No, I ain't coming back unless that b*tch gets her as* kicked!" Supposedly Dash was referring to one of the show's other stars, LisaRaye McCoy.
The source adds that everyone on set was stunned because McCoy, 44, apparently did nothing to upset Dash. "It was an intimate dinner party scene so everyone was in cocktail dresses," the source says. "Stacey was screaming and running around in thousand dollar Louboutins!"
¡Ay, que drama! We can't lie, we're totally tuning in...
