( — On Monday, it was revealed that “All My Children” alumna Denise Vasi is set to fill the void that the departure of Stacey Dash is due to leave on the second season of VH1′s “Single Ladies.” Dash, who remains breathtaking at 45 years-old and who is best known for her role in the 1995 hit-film “Clueless” opposite Alicia Silverstone and Brittany Murphy, recently cited her family being based on the opposite coast of  where the series films as the reason for her early departure. The rumor mill has cited there’s more to the story and notes unconfirmed friction between the actress and the show producers which includes most notably Queen Latifah. Pertaining to the casting of Vasi, Latifah notes that the actress “is the perfect addition to the cast … She is bringing a fun, new element to the show.”

In its first season, the dramedy series followed the life and relationships between friends Val (Dash), Keisha (LisaRaye McCoy) and April (Charity Shea). Beginning next season, Vasi will portray the role of Keisha’s close friend, Raquel. Raquel is described as “a savvy business woman from a prominent Southern family on a quest to discover passion.” As of right now, there is no word on how “Single Ladies” will address the departure of Dash’s character. “Single Ladies” averaged 2.8 million viewers for the eleven original episodes that aired last summer.

Before landing the role of hooker with a heart of gold Randi Hubbard on “AMC” in 2008, Vasi was best known as the drop-dead gorgeous model that Def Jam Recordings mogul Russell Simmons was showing off on his arm in 2006 – just months before the official announcement that his marriage to Kimora Lee was reaching it’s denouncement. In terms of Vasi’s acting career, recently, the 28-year old actress could be seen on the big screen in a minor role in the film “What’s Your Number?” She also recently completed filming a minor role on a Steve Soderbergh (“Traffic,” “Ocean’s Eleven,” etc.) comedy, “Magic Mike,” which is set to be released in 2012. The actress is currently filming the Charles Murray (Murray has produced multiple episodes for series including “V,” “Castle” and “Criminal Minds”) drama “Things Never Said.”

“Single Ladies” begins taping its second season this January in Atlanta, Georgia. The second season of the series will debut in May of 2012 on VH1.

( — “All My Children” alumna Chrishell Stause recently chatted with TV Line about a multitude of topics including her guest-role on ABC’s “Body of Proof” slated to air tonight. The bodacious actress also discussed some past regrets and her future plans.

Several weeks ago, Stause applauded co-star Susan Lucci on Twitter when daytime’s biggest name made the surprising revelation that she had made a counteroffer to Prospect Park in early September but had not been contacted since. The statement was made following months of sources indicating difficult negotiations between [Lucci] and the production company were the reason for “AMC’s” production stall. Stause elaborated on her original sentiment to TV Line, adding “to be honest with you, that Prospect Park thing was such a disaster. They came to people and gave one offer, and when it came time to renegotiate they never came back to the table. It wasn’t the actors that weren’t trying to make something work.” Stause is sorry fans didn’t get to see the original ending creator Agnes Nixon and head writer Lorraine Broderick penned. The actress adds, “we all had these vignettes that were beautiful and really great.” She affirms that at least part of that episode was filmed – before the script was changed to comply with an impending online future – including scenes with her and her on-screen mother played by Kate Collins.

Currently on the plate for Stause is preparation for pilot season which officially begins in January. In pilot season, which lasts through April, new dramas and sitcoms begin filming pilot episodes in hopes of being picked up for the following season of programming on the networks and cable. The actress just completed a course at the Groundlings which has helped launch the careers of comedians Phil Hartman, Lisa Kudrow and Jon Lovitz. Stause also will begin taping the second season of the intense psychological thriller “Luke 11:17″ in February. She also appeared in the first season of the web series that debuted in 2009.
