Let's see how many Clueless references we can pack into this post, shall we?
Fox News has just tapped actress Stacey Dash as their newest political contributor, E! News has confirmed. Dash, who is best known as Dionne Davenport from the cult classic '90s film (and TV series) Clueless, will put her Dr. Seuss-inspired hats away and will offer "cultural analysis and commentary across various daytime and primetime programs." (No news if Murray will be making any appearances as well.)
In a statement released on Wednesday, Bill Shine, Fox News' Executive Vice President of Programming, expressed his excitement for adding Dash to the team. "Stacey is an engaging conversationalist whose distinctive viewpoints amongst her Hollywood peers have spawned national debates," Shine said. "We're pleased to have her join Fox News."
The network should be very pleased with their picks because 47-year-old Dash is definitely not a Monet—in fact she seems to be getting more and more beautiful with age. We bet Amber is pissed.
Dash, who openly supported Mitt Romney in the last presidential election, has continued to voice her opinions and encourage discussion on topics ranging from pop culture to national news and politics across all media platforms. Fingers crossed Dash will be able to argue her opinion with elegance and confidence, despite the fact that she never took Mr. Hall's debate class.
So how should Dash celebrate her newest career accomplishment? We suggest acting like a total heifer. Go ahead, girl—treat yourself to two bowls of Special K, three pieces of turkey bacon, a handful of popcorn, five peanut butter M&M's and, like, three pieces of licorice.
Congrats, Stacey! We're sure that Cher would be proud of your accomplishments.
Oh and take that, Shawana. No one wants you or your polyester hair…
