OH SNAP: LisaRaye McCoy FINALLY Reveals To JET Her Drama With Stacey Dash...And Why She DE-FRIENDED Duane Martin

And finally...LisaRaye McCoy gives up the goods on what really went down with her and Stacey Dash...and Stacey's sudden departure from their VH1 show "Single Ladies."  In an exclusive interview with JET magazine, the former Premier of Turks & Caicos' wife refuses to take the blame for Stacey leaving...but does admit a catfight or two ensued.  Plus, the opportunist Hollywood actor she dumped as a friend...

In next week's issue of JET magazine, the feisty LisaRaye McCoy reveals she doesn't have the "power" to get a co-star (namely Stacey Dash) axed form her "Single Ladies" show.  But if you read between the lines, it's pretty clear she indirectly may have had something to do with Stacey's departure.  Not to mention the many sources who saw their fights first hand on the set.

Now, LisaRaye finally gives up the details.  Here's the highlights:

On moving on without Stacey Dash who played her best friend on the show:

Believe me I wish things had worked out because I thought Stacey and I were great together.  She was my age and we were working it.  It was sex-symbol to sex-symbol.  But she didn't want to be there.  I was disappointed about that.  She had some issues.  I'm not sure exactly what those issues were.  In the end, she and VH1 made a decision.

On the catfights that really went down on set

Yes, there was a disagreement over a scene.  And it really wasn't with me.  It was with the director.  I think it was about 2 or 3AM and we'd been shooting all damn day.  Stacey tried to argue with the director about a line.  And I'm like: "Girl, if you don't say what the director wants you to say."  It wasn't that serious at first, but it went there.

It's a bunch of women on the set.  We might all be on our damn period at any given point.  I just wanted us to move forward.  Then the argument took on a life of its own.  The show decided to use it for publicity.  They just ran with it.

On which Hollywood friend she had to dump

Duane Martin.  I introduced him to my ex-husband [former Turks & Caicos Premier Michael Misick], he got buddy-buddy with him and then turned against me.   Just recently, this fool Duane up and sold a building he and I bought awhile ago in Los Angeles, without asking...I don't care if we're not friends, just don't try to f**k me in the interim.

When I heard about him in the middle of Will & Jada's divorce rumors, I tweeted: sounds familiar.  He really aint got enough business.

Ha!  And there's more where that came from.  Pick up JET to see what LisaRaye had to say about whether she's feeling her new co-star, Denise Vasi, and if she and Vivica Fox ever squashed their beef!

I think Stacey Dash is a

I think Stacey Dash is a breath taking beautiful woman, but so is Lisa Raye and the other cast members. Looking at the comments I feel for the celebrities when they have to read all of the comments that people say. Some people can be down right mean. It is so easy to throw up a woman's age especially black women. Men on the other hand can pretty much do whatever and everyone accepts it. No one was there to see what really took place, and frankly, I feel that Lisa Raye is pretty enough to hold her own and wish the show much success. I wish Stacey the best and would like to see her pursue more movies . So far Season 2 in turning out to be a hot show.

When I read the article on

When I read the article on Lisa Raye I said to myself.. "Wow!... Lisa is taking the elegance of an actress to a whole different level!..." I was surprised by Lisa's disrespectful demeaner and use of profanity. In one sentence she said "f--- um!" She was referencing bloggers who aren't impressed with her on her new tv show. I've been reading Jet magizine forever and never have I heard an actress speak in such a foul manner. She speaks and act more like a reality show tv personality than she does a professional, trained and elegant actress. I was stunned. She seems very bitter and unpolished. I could never imagine Vivica Fox, Halle Berry, Jada Pinkett Smith, Sanna Latham or Angela Bassett behave that way. They are A list actresses who have class and dignity. Yes, it's okay to speak your mind. However, it's not what you say but how you say it. Lisa is acting like a classless hood rat. I'm so turned off by her and her acting skills on her new show. I believe the show will sink with her on it.

Listen. LisaRaye is

Listen. LisaRaye is absolutely stunning-forget the fact that she's 40 something! I adore her ability to carry the show with or without Miss equally stunning Stacy Nash. I've been waiting for the show to return and disappointed to discover Stacy's no longer on it but the show must go on! Rock-on LisaRaye.

I think Stacy's attitude is

I think Stacy's attitude is what has hindered her career, she should be a much bigger star than the B lister that she has remained. This is not the first time it’s been reported that she is difficult to work with. Gorgeous woman but a cocky disposition is never fun to be around. I like the format of the show and the ages of the women. There are enough shows with really young actors , the seasoned actor needs to work too.bigger star than the B lister that she has remained.

Someone said LisaRaye was the prettiest girl in her hood,but when she got out she realized her looks were run of the mill. Lol I live in Chicago right in the area she spent most of her life growing up and I assure you she was NEVER the only one,that's not EVER the case attractive women are all over Chicago.... She just happened to have a connection to Hollywood through her pretend sister and that is all!

I think they should have cast

I think they should have cast a woman close to Stacey's age to replace her. I liked the "grown and sexy" factor this show had. This new girl makes it look an updated, high-school version of Saved By Bell with LisaRaye looking like someone's mama.

Anonymous's picture

Just to clarify: by "it girl"

Just to clarify: by "it girl" factor I meant Stacey Dash isn't the young, light skinned, big-breasted/large butt, video-girl passed-around type. Heck, she hasn't worked much since "Clueless" & yet she has a cool factor. She never comes across as thirsty for work & lets her beauty & talent speak for itself.

Lisa Raye is giving me LIFE

Lisa Raye is giving me LIFE in this photo! That girl is truly gorgeous & she knows it! Can't hate on facts! While I do think she should work on her accent (like many many others who go to Hollywood. E.g. Charlize Theron doesn't sound South African) to give herself a wider range of roles, it works for this show. I wish her much success! I love The Real McCoy because I thought she was brutally honest: marrying for money hoping it would turn in to love ( um yeah, it didn't), smothering her daughter with kisses (my mom did that to me!), crying over her almost lost jewellery in SJU (shit, I woulda cried too), her personal idiosyncrasy with white clothes, etc. Well, I guess I'm more hyped about a new season of Real McCoy than Single Ladies!

I met Duane Martin on a flight & he was super nice & soo handsome. He didn't ping my gaydar at all, but if he is gay---so what?! Just be honest with your partner & be safe. Folks screaming at him (& others: Will Smith, Trey Songz, Queen Latifah, etc.) to come out are so mean about it, who would want to come out?! If you are gay or bi, just know you do have some support & love in the straight black community! *kisses*

I believe that Jada and Queen

I believe that Jada and Queen latifah are friends, and Queen latiifah is the boss of single ladies. Why would you bite the hand that feed you? queen latifah has been hiding the fact she gay for year's. And the fact that tisha campbell was one of her closest friends no thanks to watching this show.

I loved LisaRaye and Stacey's chemistry on the show. Stacey is crazy and can't keep a job. She recently was fired from another show. About Duane Martin, he's a flaming, jealous homo who was butt-buddies with Lisa's hubby. Even Tisha Campbell won't defend him.

Stacey Dash is irreplaceable

Stacey Dash is irreplaceable , you can get a chick that resembles her but no one will come close regardless. I watched the show because I really liked Stacey's character, Lisa's character is not relatable and just come off as cougar hood rat , which she actually is . You can take the girl out the hood but you cannot take the hood out the girl . I'm sure people will continue to tune this season but it probably will not make it to season 3, I'm almost sure that because they lost Stacey the show will definitely lose its charm.

I actually think they need to

I actually think they need to replace lisa raye. I think her nxt to denise vasi and (white girl) she looks old. I feel like with staceys departure, lisa raye no longer fits the bill. I would like to see someone more age appropiate for lisa fayes role. Like a lauren london, or someone early 30's late 20's. It would be cute if they threw tika sumpter up in the mix too. Just to add a bit of chocolate to the cast. Other than that the show is cool. Ill still be watching.

i notice women always get

i notice women always get mysteriously fired when around Lisaraye. just like on the show "just the two of us" when Elise Neal mysteriously had a little tiff (which Elise admitted to the disagreement on tvone Life After)with Lisaraye and no one ever saw her on the show again. Elise character was dating Duane Martin's character. i wouldn't wanna work with Lisaraye, she may say she doesn't have the power to fire people, but i have work with people on 9-5 jobs that get people fired by complaining or saying little things to the powers that be.
