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!

Notice that Lisa mentioned

Notice that Lisa mentioned that she & Stacy were good together cause they were the same age. I don't think is too comfortable with the fact that they replace Stacy with a 28yr old. If she did have anything to do with Stacy leaving that was a dumb move. As for Duane Martin, there have been too many rumors for a long length of time. They are coming from somewhere???

Lisa Raye is so beautiful,

Lisa Raye is so beautiful, but she shows her D-list status as a celebrity everytime she speaks. i admire her for being honest and keeping it real, but anytime an accredited celeb gives an interview and is asked about alleged beef, they never give the media/press the satisfaction of confirming the dirt and cashing in on printing or reporting it. an A-list or accredited celeb usually says something like, "I have no issues with this person, and I wish him/her well"....that would be PR 101. after all these years in the industry I would think she would know better, I have no choice but to think that she just doesn't care and plays by her own rules...but that would also explain why her roles are always so type cast and not more diverse.

Lisa Ray's "voice" isn't even

Lisa Ray's "voice" isn't even audible enough to be on "TV". She speaks in the same monotone manner all the time. She has the same voice on reality tv and her sitcom (or whatever it was), not to mention she sounded the same in the Players Club. A few acting and voice lessons wouldn't hurt. IJS.

Lisa has always been hood and

Lisa has always been hood and I feel its an agreement across all counts that this broad...CAN NOT ACT...SHE IS NOT AN ACTRESS. That term is used every so loosely when talking about her, because as she ever really does is PLAY HERSELF! PERIOD! Her and Stacey are not and have never been in the same league looks wise even when Lisa was in her player club days...take a look at miss Dash during that time if u will...STACEY WINS, HANDS DOWN! Denise Vasi in the same category, Lisa can't hold a candle to her. U know what Lisa is...she was the prettiest chick in her hood...til she got out in the world and realized her looks were very run the mill basic compared to many others. Sex symbol against sex symbol...puh-leez! That is a title someone else bestows upon you, u don't give it to yourself.

Everytime I see this chick, I

Everytime I see this chick, I just have to shake my head. This is the woman who, when she married the Premier of the Turks and Caicos, thought she was "the Queen of the Turks and Caicos" instead of an elected officials wife. They spent money like crazy i.e. a crest for their so-called private plane. Her husband turned out to be corrupt, which was one of the causes of the island losing their independence and going under British Rule after 33 years. Now the last I heard there was a warrant out for his arrest. His financial dealings were suspect and illegal. And she really thought she was going to get money from this criminal fool of a ex-husband? Come on now....

Turks and Caicos was always

Turks and Caicos was always under the British Territories, It was never an Independent Nation, they never owned a private plane, it was a loan from a friend of his, and yes Lisa Raye is Trash 100%

Quote - "Self-government is

Quote - "Self-government is suspended amid reports of serious corruption - The self-rule that the Turks and Caicos islands have enjoyed for 33 years was taken away on August 14th, when Britain removed their elected premier, cabinet and assembly, and suspended most of their constitution. For the next two years or so the islands, whose population is around 38,000, will be run by their governor—the representative of Queen Elizabeth. " And yes, the plane was not theirs but she testified at this trial that he led her to believe that he bought it for her so she was business trying to decorate it with their "crest" and other things. And yes, Lisa Raye is Trash 100%!
MsLea's picture

Self-governance is not the

Self-governance is not the same as independence. T&C has never been independent. If they were, Britain could never have suspended the constitution and fired all the officials. The only way independent countries can "lose" their independence is by being invaded, occupied, and conquered. That didn't happen. The fact that Britain was able to simply remove the Premier, and other reps, suspend the constitution, and appoint a governor PROVES that Turks and Caicos were NOT independent.

But women are not the only ones Exploited in the Industry. The casting couch works many ways. LOL I'm sorry.

Furios I hope you have first information about the things you speak here. This is such heavy stuff to put on people's names. This cannot be good karma. But if you are right. It's harmless. It's easy to run with your imagination in the comment section but hmmmm
Errors galore....'s picture

Errors....Talk to LISA she is

Errors....Talk to LISA she is the one who's telling you things if you're smart enough to HEAR them. And Karma does have a way doesn't it? Some of the people I'm speaking about are FOOLING the public. These people are selling FALSE images and making money off it. Take Tyler Perry. This man plays so many games when it comes to his sexuality because he is also selling LIES to a community that values the LAWS of GOD. But people.... especially people of color they are so TRUSTING. They want to believe in Will Smith, Tyler Perry, and people like that. The sad thing is that these are rules that society has made but these people PROFIT off it but being deceptive. And on top of that they are NASTY. The Black community has the HIGHEST rates of HIV and AIDS. And a lot of that has to do with people being stupid (not protecting themselves) but some of that is people being dishonest on Down Low. And with people like Will Smith...they subvert and laugh at people who don't know and they exploit that......all the way to the BANK. And you don't think that is wrong? And they use their children to spread subversive messages to other children. So yes....Karma is something. Lisa was just smart with how she exposed a few people. Her motives may not be pure but knowledge is power. You can stay in the dark all you want. But others are listening and they may gain something of VALUE.

Anonymous's picture

I agree! And it's not just

I agree! And it's not just about the "INDUSTRY" as women we have to smart. There is a reason why African American women have such high HIV and AIDS rates. I just wish more of my sisters would refrain from casual sex and especially unsafe sex. I don't get down like that. My boyfriend I've known for a long time and I mean I KNOW him. And he found out early that I'm about the relationship first, career and then we'll see where the rest goes. We have to know each other and BOTH be about something. And being about something means waiting. When they want to rush you into situations they sure don't love you. Career first then a FAMILY. Marriage FIRST then children. People have casual sex with people they don't even know and that is why we have all these wild children running around without FATHERS. NEVER say what a man won't do or has not DONE. Truth will set you free and don't be fooled by a good looking face. Those are the ones you really need to watch.

Lisa is a smooth as a CAT.

Lisa is a smooth as a CAT. She knows FULL well having worked with Duane Martin that Will Smith and Duane Martin are LOVERS. This has been said for such a LONG time because it's 100% TRUE. Will also had a thing with GAY SONGZ and there are photos. But back to Will and Duane.....She knows the rumors because she was on SET. But she was also getting a pay check from the show. Lisa played it so SMART.....she said...."When I heard about him in the middle of Will & Jada's divorce rumors, I tweeted: sounds familiar." LMAO She outted them without catching any LEGAL ramifications because these DL men with lawyers will send them out to attack. LOL I love her! That was so SLICK! LOL

I wish I could tell you who is REALLY with Trey. But I can't! But Trey Songz is 100% gay. Will Smith ran through him but he was late to the party because so many other industry men been there done that. You never see him with any girls that are not (beard models....like Jessica White who "dated" John Legend and Kanye....LMAO). And he loves to USE women like Neyo as PROPS along with those other DL men in the Industry. Neyo can't even hide it LOL They don't call him Gay Songz for nothing.

I heard he was with Lauren

I heard he was with Lauren London though. Also when he visited a local university here (before he blew up), I heard he ran a train on the AKAs. Well, he may be bisexual then...who knows. BUT I think he's very SEXY to say the least. It would be very disappointing to find out he's gay considering the tone of his music.

@ KING.....There is someone I

@ KING.....There is someone I can name for you that was DEEP in it with Trey Song. The person who was his like MAN was this low rent singer named Brandon Hines. These two were getting it in! This was when Trey had braids. But just look on the internet. Brandon's manager got mad at a bad deal and kind of outted them. But that is where you need to start. But since Brandon Trey has been placed on the industry casting couch and it seems to have paid off for him. But he sold his soul to get it.
FuriouS StyleS™®  's picture

I heard about the Brandon

I heard about the Brandon Hines thing. Both Brandon and Trey said it was FALSE. Trey had a long-term girlfriend at that time as well. I wouldn't be able to enjoy his music the same anymore if he is gay...he's supposed to be a LADIES man. But I will admit, he does seem overly eager to prove that he loves women...so it would not 100% surprise me if he is having relations with men.
KingBeyonce's picture

@ KING....Do you expect Trey

@ KING....Do you expect Trey to say it's true? LMAO and just look at them. Neither of them are the most manly men (not that that means much but the most manly one are usually the most GAY). But Trey goes overboard with it. And Brandon is so weak. They really make sense. They look so much alike. LOL But sorry Trey is GAY! And Brandon is a queen. I think women need to be smart and trust their instincts. You know when a man is into you and when he's not. Trey is weak and his stage shows go too far. Real men don't have to SELL it has hard as he does and it's still WEAK. LOL
