Stacey Dash is once again unattached.
The "Clueless" actress has left her role in the VH1 series "Single Ladies." In a statement, Dash said she was bowing out of the series which films in Atlanta, Georgia, for family reasons.
“I truly enjoyed playing Val on 'Single Ladies,' but I have decided to leave the show," she said. "I have to be back in L.A. with my children right now and the ‘Single Ladies’ shooting location makes that impossible. I wish VH1 the best of luck with the show and in maintaining the strong fan base we developed in season one.”
There had been rumored trouble on the set (including a speculated physical altercation) between Dash and co-star LisaRaye, whom told CNN in May that there was no truth to the reports.
The network released a statement wishing Dash well.
“VH1 respects Stacey’s decision and her commitment to what she feels is best for her family," the statement said. "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.”
