LisaRaye McCoy On "Single Ladies" Critics: "F**K'em!"

vh1 single ladies

Huffington Post: And with success, of course, comes critics. What are your thoughts on media outlets who dubbed season one, “embarrassing.”

LisaRaye McCoy: F**k’em! Let them write a show and come up with what they want to see. Until then, the people who love it, tune in.

Well, there ya go. It doesn't get any clearer, or *realer* than that, does it? 

That was a snip from an interview Single Ladies star LisaRaye McCoy did with Huffington Post, published earlier today.

A second season, much to the disappointment of some I'm sure, begins exactly 1 week from today - May 28th!

The show, which made its debut on May 30th, 2011, averaged close to 3 million viewers each week, with a strong showing in its core 18 to 34 female demographic.

Earlier this year, it was announced that Cassandra Freeman (most recently seen on S&A in Alrick Brown's Kinyarwanda) had joined the cast of the Queen Latifah-produced hour-long VH1 dramedy series which revolves around the romantic lives of three friends.

Freeman will play a character named Morgan Hayes, but no word on what her relationship will be to the others in the cast.

You'll remember that series lead Stacey Dash exited the series after its inaugural season (well there goes any reason to watch season 2 now, right fellas?) and was replaced by All My Children alum Denise Vasi

LisaRaye McCoy and Charity Shea will return.

We last posted a promo for season 2 about a month ago; over the weekend, a full 3 1/2-minute "super trailer" surfaced, and is embedded below if you missed it.

Check out the full interview with the no-nonsense McCoy at HuffPo HERE in which she also talks about what to expect from her character in season 2, as well as Stacey Dash's exit:
