Stacey Dash's "Single Ladies" Replacement Is..."All My Children" Actress Denise Vasi

VH1 has made its decision on who will replace Stacey Dash on their popular scripted series "Single Ladies."  And it's none of the chicks whose names were thrown out there once Stacey got the axe.

 

Check out who nabbed the lead role inside...

After Stacey made an abrupt exit months ago--which she claims was voluntary but we all know the deal--a new chick is hitting the set to fill the void.  Producer Queen Latifah and creator Stacy Littlejohn have replaced Stacey with another bi-racial beauty--"All My Children" actress and Oil of Olay model (and the ex-girlfriend of powerful New York club owner Noah Tepperberg) Denise Vasi.

The 28-year-old is not doing Stacey's exact role of "Val," but she's playing a woman named "Raquel" who has a very similar story.  Deadline reports:

Vasi will play the new role of Raquel, a close friend of Keisha (McCoy) who is a savvy business woman from a prominent Southern family on a quest to discover passion. “Denise is the perfect addition to the Single Ladies cast,” Queen Latifah said. “She is bringing a fun, new element to the show.” Single Ladies, VH1′s first hourlong scripted series, is a romantic comedy series about Keisha, Raquel and April (Shea) – best friends with different philosophies on love, sex and relationships, proving not all women have the same desires.

Denise, who is a Brooklyn native of Puerto Rican, Dominican and Greek decent, was on "All My Children" for 3 years before it went off the air.  And also appeared in this year's big comedy What's Your Number? with Anna Farris.  Not sure how I'm feeling about this.  Denise's acting skills, as I personally watched her on "AMC" for years, have never been above par.  But then again, neither are anyone else's on that show.  And she seems like a sweet girl who won't compete with the diva antics of co-star LisaRaye McCoy.  So maybe she'll fit right in.

"Single Ladies" begins production on Season 2 in Atlanta in January for a premiere in early summer.  You feelin' this?

I, too, am VERY disappointed that Stacey Dash (Val) will not be on Single Ladies anymore. She played her part very well. :( :( :( Well, if it's meant to be, she will be back.

I just read this

I just read this interview/article Denise "Vasi" AKA new girl on Single Ladies gave lol Ok so u say u r family oriented? your a liar because you haven't spoken to your mother or step dad in YEARS. I read blogs about you and people that went to school with you called u out like the cheap SKANK that u are. You HATED your family and so u moved in with your grandmother in Brighton Beach N.Y. Your name is NOT Denise "Vasi" is Denise FELIX. You slept with almost every guy in John Dewey High School as well as Reynolds J.H.S. You met Noah Tepperberg, a really old ugly fat white man who had connections into the industry (yes I saw pictures of u with him on google) he helped u land a role on All My Children and then u dumped him! You later moved on to Russel Simmons, and u saw u weren't getting ISH out of him so u moved on to the next fellow who was rich and owned a "pasta shop (Hello Pasta in NYC)" Oh wait I missed one, u were engaged to Sevan Arslanian another connected man in the industry, u lasted 48hrs and that was that. Now you are dating another poor soul, Anthony Handler a big time music video producer who helped you land this current role. You'r teeth are FAKE(I saw pictures of you when you were young) Your face is all BOTOXED out to the point where you cant really move it. Your head is too big for your body and you lack in the acting skills. EVERYONE on this planet knows that the ONLY and I repeat the ONLY reason why you have made it this far is A) Your colored eyes AND B) You sleep with high powered men to get ahead in this industry! Point BLANK! It's not shocking to believe because well, we saw you on screen TRYING to act and you are ABSOLUTE torture to watch! You will always be a hood-rat. Stacy is a talented amazing lady and u honey will never measure up. Your acting shouldn't be aloud in a kindergarten play.

I am deeply upset about the decision to replace Stacey Dash! She is cute, fun, sexy and a PERFECT fit for the role. I LOVED the show, but to be honest I am NOT looking forward to a new woman in the place of Stacey. She played the character Val, very well... So what if she was acting like a diva, she is partially responsible for all the viewers Single Ladies had last season. I am #teamSTACEYDASH. They need to bring her back. Queen Latifa will notice when ratings go down. No one knows this new chick, and Stacey set the bar very high. If the new chick doesnt meet expectations and blow everyone away, Single Ladies will not remain on TV.

I was so happy when I saw that Stacy Dash was getting an opportunity to resurrect her career however...if she was acting the diva role that they said she was then she has her own self to blame for her "exit". How can you act up when you haven't had a steady gig in years??? I don't get it. She should have been grateful and humble. Good luck Denise!

Her acting is not all that

Her acting is not all that great but neither is anyone elses on the show. Stacy Dash should have humbled herself to try and get along because prior to this show her claim to fame was Clueless which came out in the mid 90's. Plus her age has caught up with her so she is not looking young anymore. I like the story line of the show. I speculate they will elude to Val marrying and running off to wherever to explain her absence.

Now I can see first hand how

Now I can see first hand how what pple assume on these blogs is just that! I went to HS with Denise and she was the SWEETEST young lady. She was already a top model in YM Magazines for teens and was very well known at that point. Her boyfriend was a white, chubby nerd from our school who really had no friends. She was so in love with him. No one could understand why. He wasnt from money or anything like that. She was just a sweet, naive girl and they dated for years. She is not a gold digging type and has been working since she was just a kid. I am excited to see her career taking off and wish her nothing but the best. She was a good friend of mine while we attended school and I got to know her very well. Congrats Denise! Cant wait to see you in one of my fav shows.

I agree wholeheartedly. I am tired of black ppl claiming so called black ppl that you need a microscope to find the blackness in them. If the person identifies as black, and flatly say they are black then fine, I will accept it, but when someone does not identify as black I just can't see claiming them especially when they do not look black to begin with.

Sorry VH1 and Single Ladies producers but I think you dropped the ball on this one. I would "occupy" the set but hey I'm only one person;)

well the only need for a Stacey Dash look-a-like would've been if they were using this person to play the "Val" character, but since this person will be taking on a whole new character it does bring into question the use of another light skinned actress to fill the void.
