More Than Just Co-Stars? “Single Ladies” Actress LisaRaye McCoy Speaks On Relationship With D.B. Woodside
“Single Ladies” returns to VH1 Jan. 6 and the ladies are already out and about promoting the new season. Cast members LisaRaye McCoy, Denise Vasi, Charity Shea and newcomer LeToya Luckett recently stopped by “The Arsenio Hall Show” where they candidly discussed a little bit of everything—including whether or not they’ve ever gotten it on with any of their male co-stars in real life.
“D.B. Woodside, our chemistry is off the chain,” LisaRaye said of her co-star who plays the role of Malcolm. “We don’t even have to rehearse together, but there’s something about him. He just brings out the sexiness. You know, the cougar I guess.”
Of course this only welcomed Arsenio (and others) to wonder whether or not LisaRaye and D.B.’s on-screen romance ever spilled over into real life.
“You never made love to him in real life did you?” Arsenio asked?
But LisaRaye promises their relationship is all business.
“Why you getting in my personal business?” the former First Lady of Turks and Caicos quickly retorted.
“I’m just trying to make sure you’re a good actress and not doing it from memory,” Arsenio joked.
“It’s not reality. Hey, you know what?” she asked before releasing a slight chuckle, “He’s the best actor I’ve ever done a love scene with.”
Lisa also made it clear that talent and skill is what separates the “Single Ladies” cast from reality TV stars.
“It is very different. It’s scripted,” said McCoy. “So it takes a certain amount of skills, no matter what level you’re at, it takes skills. We breathe life into the words. The writers write. And as much as we do it perfectly [or imperfectly], it’s us being a character.”
Not sure why a scripted series is being compared to reality shows anyway, but okay.
