Single Ladies star LisaRaye McCoy is in the middle of her second season with the VH1 series.

McCoy stars as Keisha, who is a single woman looking for love, in the popular romantic comedy series. But as it turns out she’s also looking for love in real life too.  The 40-something beauty covers BE magazine’s XXXXI digital issue and reveals she is a single lady.

McCoy explains to the magazine that she hopes to be swept off her feet like a fairytale. She also talks about being called by her character’s names by fans and what she thinks about reality stars.

On still being called her past & present characters: People call me Diamond all the time. It ranges from Diamond to Niecy to now Keisha. People in the grocery store will call me Keisha & I look around like “who me?” They reply with “girl you know that’s you…”

The digital copy of the entire interview will be posted on BE’s website on July 27.
