If you checked out the 52-year-old actress’ Uncensored episode that aired on TV One on Sunday, then you know that she also made mention of her former Single Ladies co-star, Stacey Dash. The star talked about the time the women got really close to an encounter that wouldn’t have ended well for the former Clueless star.
“Stacey auditioned for Single Ladies. Something took a turn one night when we were filming and she put her finger up in my face and she said, ‘You don’t tell me anything!” Every bit of South Side Chicago was brewing up in here,” she said in a clip, holding onto her stomach.
“That made me go, ‘Stacey, if you don’t get your finger out my face…’ but that was all I had to say.”
This isn’t the first time that LisaRaye has spoken out about the two bumping heads on the set of the show. Stacey didn’t return for Season 2.
In an interview with Jet in 2012, she admitted they had their share of issues while filming and she was “disappointed” that things didn’t work out with both women starring on the show past one season.
“Yes, there was a disagreement over a scene. And it really wasn’t with me. It was with the director,” she said. “I think it was about 2 or 3 a.m. 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,” she added. “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.”
A few years later though, LisaRaye admitted she was somewhat involved in Stacey not coming back to the show, mentioning the finger-in-the-face moment on Centric’s Being.
“In Hollywood, I’ve learned to be a boss,” she said. “I had to say to Stacey Dash, ‘If you don’t get your motherf–king finger out of my face…’ So for our second season of Single Ladies, there was a replacement for Stacey Dash.”
