Former actress/Fox News commentator Stacey Dash hasn’t worked in years, but rumor has it she just landed a spot on a new BET reality series.
The 55-year-old’s last acting gig was playing anti-abortion activist Mildred Fay Jefferson in 2020’s Roe V. Wade. The conservative propaganda film also featured Jon Voight, Joey Lawrence, Milo Yiannopoulos, and the My Pillow guy, and was a critical and commercial bomb.
“College Hill” originally aired on BET from 2004 to 2009 and chronicled the lives of students attending historically Black colleges and universities. According to the Houston Chronicle, the series is being rebooted. But instead of featuring actual students, the new season will feature celebrities, none of whom attended HBCUs, as they immerse themselves in college life, taking classes, and even participating in things like cheerleading and athletics.

Among the rumored cast are at least two queer celebs–New Orleans’ music legend Big Freedia and bisexual rapper DreamDoll–plus NBA star Lamar Odom, Real Housewife NeNe Leakes, and hip hop singer Ray J, who have all reportedly been spotted by students at Texas Southern University.
Oh, and Dash. She’s also been seen trolling around campus. Ugh.
Dash, who has been divorced four times and arrested at least once, was a vocal Trump supporter and Fox News contributor from 2014 until 2016. During that time she made all kinds of inflammatory statements about LGBTQ people, including suggesting trans people pee “in the bushes” rather than use public restrooms and blaming Barack Obama for the Pulse massacre.
She was also accused of calling Russell Simmons’ daughter a “d*ke,” although Dash has denied this.

Last October, she went on Dr. Oz’s show to blame her past bigotry on a secret addiction to Vicodin, claiming she was taking “18 to 20 pills a day” at one point and, therefore, not herself.
“I lost everything,” she said, claiming to have blown through “about five to ten grand” a month on pills before adding, “I’m not homophobic. I’m not racist. I was just angry, and it benefited me.”
During the sit-down, Dash never actually uttered the words “I’m sorry” when talking about her past statements on LGBTQ people.

Since then, she has continued her little rebrand on social media. In addition to regularly professing her deep love of the lord, she recently took to TikTok to share a list of all the things she hates, which includes liars, intolerance, “fake people”, and the Devil.

No word yet on when the rumored new season of “College Hill” might air.

For someone claiming to hate the Devil, she sure seems to be doing a lot of work for Him.
So true! She wants his job.
Looks like they were pulling from the bottom of the barrel when casting this project.
A has been who never was. She should go on her knees back to Faux News. She would have an easier time if she were blonde and white over there but it’s on her that she chose that garbage. She made her filthy bed….
speaking of vapid c u n t s
A bunch of irrelevant hasbeens who are desperately clinging on to their 15 minutes of infamy. How many reality shows have Ray j been attached to? Will he have sex with Ms Dash and try to spin off another fake couple reality show? If you have to resort to being on a career killing reality show just to stay relevant chances are it will never work out for you.
She needs to get either a retail job or fast food job.
But then she’d have to actually WORK. I don’t think she understands the concept.
So she blames her bigotry and right wing craziness on an addiction to pills.
Sounds about right. All of those Trump supporting bigots sound like they aren’t in their right minds.
Can’t wait to see this I love Stacey. I also agree with her views ? ?
I dont think she’s phobic, there is nothing to be afraid of! Unless you’re a child in which case gay men are over ten times more likely to abuse you than straight men according to the data on zeroabuseproject
Why are you on a LGBTQ site? Also, from Media Matters, “a 1995 study released by the American Psychological Association found that “gay men are no more likely than heterosexual men to perpetrate child sexual abuse.”
Also, “for example, the article quoted David Finkelhor, director of the Crimes Against Children Research Center at the University of New Hampshire, as saying that pedophilia is ‘kind of* a separate sexual orientation’ from homosexuality, and that pedophiles ‘often’… have no attraction to adults whatsoever.””
Hi SamB, Marcy Mayer, etc….
Actually the data shows straight people are far more likely to abuse children. But how interesting that on an article that isn’t about that topic you bring it up…..and also how interesting that so many Republicans have been busted for child abuse and molestation lately. Sounds like you have molesting kids at the forefront of your mind….like so many right wingers do.
Gay men are more likely to abuse young girls? After all you said child. That would include girls as well.
I think you’ve been at the bourbon bottle too long.
P.S. anyone who has been divorced 4 times while bragging about “conservative “ values has a screw loose.
WWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTTT… Joey Lawrence is a RWNJ??? NOOOO! Why am I just hearing about this???
Another useless show that will bomb in no time.
The BIGGEST problem with shows like these…. the people that actually watch them. It is what keeps them coming.
And of course Dr. Oz gets featured. He is so wrong for the Pennsylvania Senate job.
Maybe this upcoming show will show off Houston, a fascinating, diverse city, in its truth. It’s America’s fourth largest city but gets too little national attention. Top Chef Houston is airing now and will probably showcase Houston better.
She must hate herself. She claims she hates fakes. She’s made a career out of being a fake.
