‘Single Ladies’ Actress Denise Vasi Covers BLEU’s ‘Bombshell’ Magazine


Single Ladies actress Denise Vasi covers the premiere issue of BLEU‘s Bombshell magazine (the publication’s newest magazine). Bombshell focuses on women’s beauty and lifestyle.

Adorned in throwback 1970’s inspired Vogue attire, Denise embodies the essence of bombshell; sultry, sublime, and sophisticated. Bombshell caught up with the BK born beauty to discuss her role on Single Ladies, prep for the altar, and her take on plastic surgery.” Below are some highlights:


Denise on her character Raquel:

“I think we are equally fabulous. I’m from Brooklyn and have a trucker’s mouth, don’t get me mad. Raquel is uptight in some arenas. This season you will see a lot of sass and her showing up to the table as a business woman.”

Vasi speaks on her fitness regime:

“I’m not a gym lover (but) I want to look my best for my wedding.  I make time with my trainer. We spend an hour training each day.”

Obtaining her golden glow:

“My fiancé thinks it’s crazy. I use Ghee.  Ghee is an organic butter used for cooking. I put that on my hands and feet when I have dry skin. You wake up silky soft.”

If she would ever try plastic surgery:

“If I have kids and my boobs start to sag, I might need a boob lift- why not?  If it makes me feel better, why say no? ”

A Single Lady Sitting Pretty In White: LisaRaye McCoy Cover Be Magazine

One of our favorite ‘Single Ladies’ (LisaRaye McCoy) covers the latest issue of BE Magazine’s XXXXI digital issue. In the cover story, the former 1st Lady and Premier of Turks and Caicos discusses her past roles including “Diamond” from the Player Clubs, finding a man and the current state of reality television. Below are some excerpts:

On finding a man:

I am a single lady. I can’t really say I’m looking for him; I just want to bump into him. I want to BE surprised. I want to BE swept off my feet like…is that, could that…why it’s him! I want that whole thing with the music playing in the background and everything…

On still being called her past & present characters:
People call me Diamond all the time. It ranges from Diamond to Niecy to now Keisha. People in the grocery store will call me Keisha & I look around like “who me?” They reply with “girl you know that’s you…”

On the current state of reality TV: 
You know what’s so funny is that I was actually a part of one of the first reality shows on Bravo called ‘The It Factor’. It was so much fun. Now, reality shows have really gotten out of hand. I am offended by it somewhat because being an actress, I’m now competing with Reality TV stars on TV and in my pockets…

Read Her Side Of The Story: LisaRaye Covers Jet Magazine & Speaks On Catfight With Stacey Dash

Successful Hollywood actress, business woman and former Premier of Turk & Caico’s LisaRaye McCoy is covering the latest issue of Jet Magazine. LisaRaye found time to take a break from filming season 2 of VH1‘s scripted show Single Ladies to chat with one of the oldest and most successful African-American publications. In the exclusive interview, LisaRaye talked about her cat fight with Stacey Dash and denied that she got her fired from the show. She also talked about her former friend, actor Duane Martin. Below are some excerpts:

On moving on without Stacey Dash who played her best friend on the show:

Believe me I wish things had worked out because I thought Stacey and I were great together.  She was my age and we were working it.  It was sex-symbol to sex-symbol.  But she didn’t want to be there.  I was disappointed about that.  She had some issues.  I’m not sure exactly what those issues were.  In the end, she and VH1 made a decision.

On the catfights that really went down on set

Yes, there was a disagreement over a scene.  And it really wasn’t with me.  It was with the director.  I think it was about 2 or 3AM and we’d been shooting all damn day.  Stacey tried to argue with the director about a line.  And I’m like: “Girl, if you don’t say what the director wants you to say.”  It wasn’t that serious at first, but it went there.

It’s a bunch of women on the set.  We might all be on our damn period at any given point.  I just wanted us to move forward.  Then the argument took on a life of its own.  The show decided to use it for publicity.  They just ran with it.

On which Hollywood friend she had to dump:

Duane Martin. I introduced him to my ex-husband [former Turks & Caicos Premier Michael Misick], he got buddy-buddy with him and then turned against me.   Just recently, this fool Duane up and sold a building he and I bought awhile ago in Los Angeles, without asking…I don’t care if we’re not friends, just don’t try to f**k me in the interim.

When I heard about him in the middle of Will & Jada’s divorce rumors, I tweeted: sounds familiar.  He really aint got enough business.

It’s Official: Stacey Dash Releases Statement On Why She Left VH1 ‘Single Ladies’

Popular Hollywood actress Stacey Dash had us all tuning into VH1’s Single Ladies this past Spring/Summer. Her stank walk and sexy voice made a lot of men flooded their Twitter accounts each time an episode premiered. After the end of a successful first season, there were rumors and speculations that Dash would not be returning to the Queen Latifah executive-produced show, which starred Val (Stacey Dash), Keisha (Lisa­Raye McCoy), and April (Charity Shea).

In an exclusive statement released to GlobalGrind.com, Stacey Dash confirmed her departure from VH1’s Single Ladies.

I truly enjoyed playing Val on ‘Single Ladies’, but I have decided to leave the show. 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.”

VH1 has also released a statement.

VH1 respects Stacey’s decision and her commitment to what she feels is best for her family. 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.”
