Actress Denise Vasi has eased into her new role of Raquel quite nicely on VH1’s Single Ladies.
Since the abrupt departure of Stacey Dash after one season, Vasi has proven she has the acting chops to help the show move forward. But that hasn’t stopped some media outlets continue to ask the stars of the show about Dash’s departure.
Although Dash and producers of the show confirmed that she was not fired but left on her own. Rumors still spread that she was fired because of her diva behavior. Now D.B. Woodside has come forward to cosign those rumors.

According to Sister 2 Sister, during an interview with Atlanta’s V103 radio personality Egypt Sherrod, Woodside, who plays Malcolm Franks on the show, claimed that things on set with Dash were not good.

“Last year was very difficult at times to go to set with all that tension that was going on with Stacey,” he told Sherrod. “So I wish her well. I’m sure she’s off doing something else.”

Rumors of Dash’s diva behavior have followed her for years. After her departure from Single Ladies she was fired from the film Supremacy starring Danny Glover and Derek Luke. Dash allegedly showed her diva behavior on the set and the producers quickly replaced her with Lela Rochon Fuqua.

When Woodside was asked if Dash was also difficult on the Single Ladies’ set, he replied that he was happy she left the show.

“Yes, she was,” Woodside said. “I don’t want to cause any trouble, but I for one, am happy she’s gone. It’s a much better place to be. It’s a much better set. I’m just going to keep it straight. I’m just going to keep it real. I am happy that she’s not there anymore.”

Woodside admitted he had a few drinks to celebrate. He added, “When I first heard that Stacey was leaving, I went out and celebrated and had some drinks.”

Ouch! So tell us how you really feel Woodside. We’re almost certain that Dash is not going to send him a Christmas card.
