VH1's Single Ladies Loses a Leading Lady—Why Did Stacey Dash Bail?

Stacey Dash

The Single Ladies can count Stacey Dash out.

No the Clueless star's not getting married, but she is leaving the VH1 show, in which she starred in as fashion boutique owner Val.

So why the abrupt decision to bail on season two?

Dash wants to get home to Los Angeles to be with her kids and since the show shoots in Atlanta, she's not really interested in staying. Although, unlike some other spectacular TV exits, this one seems to be amicable.

"I truly enjoyed playing Val on Single Ladies, but I have decided to leave the show," the actress told GlobalGrind. I have to be back in L.A. with my children right now and the Single Ladies shooting location makest hat impossible. I wish VH1 the best of luck with the show and in maintaining the strong fan base we developed in season one."

The show, the first scripted series for the network, has been renewed for a second season. No word yet on who VH1 will replace Dash with, but they did thank her for working on the show.

"VH1 respects Stacey's decision and her committment to what she feels is best for her family," the network said in a statement. "We thank her for all of her hard work in making Single Ladies a success right out of the gate, and we wish her nothing but the best in her future plans."

And we're sure they really mean that.
