No one has seen or heard from Stacey Dash since her “Single Ladies” days—unless you count the short time she spent on the set of “Supremacy” before her attitude got her in trouble. But the actress has arisen from the land where all B-list actresses go when the roles dry up and started a blog—Stay Dashing—of daily musings that she says are leading up to a new adventure: writing a “how-to” book. And guess what it’s about?
“It’ll be about me, my daily ritual and what I do every day to be Stacey Dash,” she wrote. “It’ll be about what I’ve done in the past, the mistakes I’ve made and the lessons I’ve learned. The mistakes that I continue to make that drive me to moments of madness. I want to share what I’m going through in real-time to correct, reconcile and reinvent. You see I’m on a quest to live in love and joy come hell or high water. So, I’ll be writing about my future and how I’m moving forward in life using the knowledge I’ve gained from my past and wisdom I’m finding now. Also, I want to teach women and girls how to take care of themselves…and most importantly, how to love themselves. I believe that… is truly what is most important in life. In the process of writing, I’m hopeful that while I’m teaching you I’ll also be teaching myself…”
I hope so too, otherwise that lesson might be a tad hard to convey. Once I got past the “what I do every day to be Stacey Dash” part, I actually thought this might not be so bad. Stacey has had a bit of a tumultuous relationship past that I wouldn’t mind reading about and if she talks about what really happened with her “Single Ladies” departure, I’m there. Hopefully this blog and this book will be therapeutic for Stacey because she’s seemed a tad lost throughout her professional and personal life in the self-described “Dip” she says shes in, referencing folklore legend John Henry. She also mentions something about being a “GSDG,” which no one has any idea what it means but will supposedly be explained in her book. I guess that’s her teaser to get us out to the bookstore.
