No, Just No: Stacey Dash Randomly Returns With New Show (And A Trailer For It) Called “Stacey Dash Is Normal”
After months of drawing the ire of past fans and side eyes from damn near everybody for using her support for Mitt Romney as an opportunity to get attention, Stacey Dash’s favorite candidate has lost, and Dash is back to the drawing board when it comes to trying to get people to pay attention to her again. She’s tried her hand at music, tried to explain why the Republican Party lost so badly in November as a surprise co-host on The View, and now, she’s trying to get back on television–one way or the other. Enter Stacey Dash Is Normal, the new show (not sure if it will be a web series or if she has her fingers crossed that a network will pick it up) starring the actress who is seen playing a very angry black woman cussing just about any and every person out that she can find, smoking weed out of an apple, and sleeping with a man who has an epiphany after the fact that he just might be gay. It’s clear that the trailer is supposed to be funny, but it just comes off mad awkward because it seems to be a phony attempt to be something like “Curb Your Enthusiasm”–but Dash isn’t funny on a Larry David level. I mean damn, she’s not even funny on a Doug Williams level, but hey, whatever works. The show has been created by Dash and her colleague Abe Schwartz and is the first real acting project we’ve seen her do since Vh1’s Single Ladies. But no classy and stylish Val Stokes. This time around, Dash is showcasing a more over-the-top version of herself, and who knows, maybe this is the Dash everybody talks about behind the scenes (Enter D.B. Woodside calling out Dash for being super-cray on-set). Either way, I’ll pass if and when it gets picked up as an actual series on TV or online. But hey, you might like it. Check out the trailer and let us know what you think!
