As the saying goes, where there is smoke there is fire. However, LisaRaye would like you to think otherwise as it relates to the unexpected firing of Boomerang actress Stacey Dash. Rumors have been circulating all over the net about the alleged beef the two actresses have been having on the set of Single Ladies but then all of a sudden Stacey Dash is getting the Stiletto and now is off the show.

We assume LisaRaye didn’t want to come across as the villain in the firing so the actress released her own official statement via her Facebook account:

As everyone knows I am in Italy vacationing. I was just made aware of the lies that are being spread by Mediatakeout and other blogs that like to create false stories. I was not even aware that Stacy Dash had been fired from Single Ladies. Furthermore if she has been fired that is a network decision. I don’t have the power to get her fired nor do I have any beef with her. Now I’m going to go continue enjoying my vacation!

Does LisaRaye really have this much power on the show? Well, while she has denied any involvement in the firing, it is a known fact that over the years a stronger talent who brings in the big numbers does have influence on the direction a movie or show will take, especially if it could impact the bottom line. Just ask yourself this question, who is more relevant now?

The bombshell beauty Stacey Dash, who has not had any real projects in years or the savvy talking eye candy  LisaRaye who seems to always land a role in Black Hollywood and is always consistent? If I were betting my two cents, I would put my money on LisaRaye as the dominant force behind that show, who most likely used that influence on the producers of the show. In all fairness, the show’s creator Stacey A. Littlejohn had this to say about LisaRaye’s involvement or not thereof:

LisaRaye is a very strong woman and we love her, but she does not have that kind of power, nor at any time did she seek to influence any casting decisions. Furthermore, no cast member of Single Ladies has the power to get another cast member fired. The 6th grade back-stabbing that LisaRaye’s being accused of is completely the creation of uninformed, instigating internet gossip. Please don’t buy into it. Let’s just celebrate that we have a Season 2 coming!!

Okay right..LisaRaye is a strong woman and we all know that. Did she bully you into firing Stacey Dash? Why didn’t you have similar kind words to say about Stacey? Something smells very fishy about Littlejohn’s statement but what do we know?
