Producer Queen Latifah and creator Stacy Littlejohn have officially made their choice in replacing Stacey Dash with another bi-racial beauty–“All My Children” actress and Oil of Olay model Denise Vasi.

As reported by MSDTV, Dash made an her exit months ago, citing that the shooting location made it hard to spend time with her kids — although it was rumored that it was on set fighting that essentially caused Dash’s departure.

Now the 28-year-old Denise Vasi is moving on to the “Single Ladies” set — but not as a new ‘Val’. Instead she will be playing a woman named “Raquel” who has a very similar story. Deadline reports:

Vasi will play the new role of Raquel, a close friend of Keisha (McCoy) who is a savvy business woman from a prominent Southern family on a quest to discover passion. “Denise is the perfect addition to the Single Ladies cast,” Queen Latifah said. “She is bringing a fun, new element to the show.” Single Ladies, VH1′s first hourlong scripted series, is a romantic comedy series about Keisha, Raquel and April (Shea) – best friends with different philosophies on love, sex and relationships, proving not all women have the same desires.

“Single Ladies” begins production on Season 2 in Atlanta in January for a premiere in early summer. Of course MSDTV will be watching, will you?
