Never one to bite her tongue, Lisa Raye is spilling the beans on the beef between her and Stacey Dash, as well as actor and former friend Duane Martin.
In an upcoming issue of JET magazine, the actress admits she and Stacey didn’t get along while co-starring on the VH1 show ‘Single Ladies’, hinting it was a case of competition.
As for Duane, she reveals they fell apart after he back-stabbed her during the time she was divorcing ex-husband.
Here are juicy snippets from her interview with JET:
On beefing with Stacey: “Yes, there was a disagreement over a scene. And it really wasn’t with me. It was with the director. I think it was about 2 or 3AM and we’d been shooting all damn day. Stacey tried to argue with the director about a line. And I’m like: ‘Girl, if you don’t say what the director wants you to say.’ It wasn’t that serious at first, but it went there.
“It’s a bunch of women on the set. We might all be on our damn period at any given point. I just wanted us to move forward. Then the argument took on a life of its own. The show decided to use it for publicity. They just ran with it.
“Believe me I wish things had worked out because I thought Stacey and I were great together. She was my age and we were working it. It was sex-symbol to sex-symbol. But she didn’t want to be there. I was disappointed about that. She had some issues. I’m not sure exactly what those issues were. In the end, she and VH1 made a decision.”
On beefing with Duane: “I introduced him to my ex-husband [former Turks & Caicos Premier Michael Misick], he got buddy-buddy with him and then turned against me. Just recently, this fool Duane up and sold a building he and I bought a while ago in Los Angeles, without asking…I don’t care if we’re not friends, just don’t try to f**k me in the interim.”
“When I heard about him in the middle of Will & Jada’s divorce rumors, I tweeted: sounds familiar. He really aint got enough business.”
Wow. She sure doesn’t hold back.
