Stacey Dash To (Possibly) Join Fox News

Stacey Dash To (Possibly) Join Fox News

So as I said
about Stacey Dash a year and half ago, let’s imagine you’re an actress who got
dumped from your last regular TV gig, Single
Ladies
. And then you got replaced in a film you were making due to
creative differences.” And your last two films – Patient Killer and Lap Dance
(you can pretty much guess the premise of that last one) – are “iffy” and may never see the light of day.

You try
posing for Playboy, and even create your own web series called Normal, in which you play a just
slightly exaggerated
version of yourself, which also never fully materialized, beyond the
trailer, and one episode.

But nothing is really working out as you planned. So what can
you do to get noticed? Well, if you’re a black woman like Stacey Dash, how about presenting and positioning yourself as a hard
core conservative, a fierce supporter of
the GOP and an Obama basher?

That
seems to have worked for Dash so far, who got the attention of conservatives, happy to have someone even remotely off-white, to prove to themselves that
they were welcoming of all types of people. 

Illusion is everything.

It’s
being reported
that Dash is now currently is in talks with Fox News to become a regular contributor on the network; a sort of
lateral move for someone whose last film is called Lap Dance I suppose.

No further
details so far, but it’s more than likely that, if she jumps on board, it wouldn’t
improve Fox’s black viewership, if that’s their intent, which I recently wrote about HERE.
