From the moment Hollywood vet Stacey Dash announced she was leaving her hit role on VH1’s new series Single Ladies rumors swirled about who would replace her. Well ladies and gents we now have our answer. VH1 has tapped 28-year old actress and model Denise Vasi to join the cast! Denise is a Brooklyn native of Puerto Rican, Dominican and Greek decent and played the role of “Randi Hubbard” on All My Children for three years before the soap left the air a few months back. Denise won’t be filling Stacey Dash’s exact shoes however, show producers have brought her on to play another character named “Raquel” who has a similar story line.
Vasi will play the new role of Raquel, a close friend of Keisha (McCoy) who is a savvy business woman from a prominent Southern family on a quest to discover passion. “Denise is the perfect addition to the Single Ladies cast,” Queen Latifah said. “She is bringing a fun, new element to the show.” Single Ladies, VH1′s first hourlong scripted series, is a romantic comedy series about Keisha, Raquel and April (Shea) – best friends with different philosophies on love, sex and relationships, proving not all women have the same desires.
Single Ladies is set to begin filming season two sometime in January and should be on the air just in time for summer.
