Single Ladies

Based on your comments in response to how many of you watched the season premiere of VH1's Single Ladies, and what you all thought of it, there isn't an overwhelmingly one-sided argument in favor of or against the series.

About half of you are cool with it; and the other half aren't. 

We'll see how it goes over the next 2 or 3 episodes.

Episode 2 of season 2 airs on the network tonight, at 9pm; and ahead of tonight's episode, VH1 has made last week's episode, the season premiere, available for watching on its website, for free of course. 

So those of you without cable TV, and who are interested in checking out the new season, watch the full episode, which is embedded below. 

I'm sure episode 2 will be available online as well, after it airs tonight. I believe VH1 did this last season as well.

I actually watched episode 1 (it's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it), so I can at least claim to have seen some of it - enough to talk about it. Let's just that I won't be returning for episode 2.

Never did I think I'd say that I missed the Stacey Dash, but after watching several of season 1's episodes, season 2 is definitely lacking a certain something, and I think that something is the presence of one Stacey Dash who was probably the best actress on the series, the most believable of the trio. Plus she's a hottie, and she was often, should I say, under-dressed in each episode, so that probably helped a bit :)

Her *replacement* is played by Denise Vasi, who should've stuck to modeling; I know many of you griped about the acting - her's specifically. But you can thank her twitter followers for helping her get the part; here's the story she tells:

"When Stacey decided to leave the show, I found out via Twitter. Fans of mine from ‘All My Children’ started tweeting me. So, I called my manager and I said, ‘Hey, there’s this show on VH1. Apparently an actress is leaving. So, let’s just keep an eye open, or let’s set up some meetings and be proactive about it.’"

Of course hers agent handled her business, and the rest, as they say, is history. You mean it's just that easy? And they say it's hard for black actors! 

I still haven't seen any numbers for the season premiere, which is odd. Unless I just missed them. But I'm damned curious, so if anyone can link me to episode 1's ratings, please do. I'm really curious to see if the 3 million who helped make the show a hit last year are still watching this year.

Watch episode 1 below:
