Single Ladies made its debut on VH1 breaking records for the station with 2.8 million viewers on its first episode. Stacey Dash, Lisa Raye Mccoy, and Charity Shea was a glamorous combination of fashion, business, and politics. I enjoyed the romantic soap drama produced by Queen Latifah for its weekly men guest stars and because there are very few African American leading roles on television.  Rumors were buzzing that Stacey Dash (Val) was fired and would not return for a second season due to issues with costar Lisa Raye Mccoy. Stacey put all speculations to rest when she released an official statement explaining it was her own choice to leave the popular show to focus on her children. The location for Single Ladies didn’t provide her with an opportunity to be close to her family however she wishes VH1 much success without her.
