Queen Latifah Is Writing a Show About 3 Women’s Love Lives. That’s The Joke

It’s called Single Ladies, and it’ll star the beauties Stacey Dash, LisaRaye, and Lauren London, any of whom I’d go straight for. It’s VH1’s first-ever scripted series, is supposed fill the void that Girlfriends‘ cancellation left, and truly better not license that Beyonce song unless it wants to jump the shark from Day One. But with Queen Latifah in the writer’s room, is there any chance these gals might sway sapphic?

Silly child.

“My character is very similar to my own life because I’ve never been single. Literally, since I’ve been 17 years old. She’s never been married, the character than I’m playing, whereas I’ve been married three times, so that’s the difference,” Dash says. “It’s a really good script.” [Ed: Uh, WHAT?]

McCoy’s character, a video vixen, is a bit more experienced than Dash’s. “She doesn’t have one of anything nor does she believe in having one man. She believes in dating and being able to explore her possibilities. She’s much like Samantha of Sex in the City,” explains the Player’s Club star. “Very straight up and honest. She’s the one that has that spunk, I’d like to say that she’s the slut of the three.”

McCoy, currently starring in her own reality show, TV One’s The Real McCoy, also mentioned to VIBE that London plays a younger, semi-shy character married to an NBA player. Although London will be a recurring character in the show, her rep confirms that the role is small.

Oh c’mon, throw us a token L Word bone.
