HSK Exclusive – LisaRaye is keeping her ‘Single Ladies’ fingers crossed, hoping a petition addressing VH1’s president will save the show. But if all else fails.. ‘The Real McCoy’ will fall back on hustlin’ her hair brand… more importantly, SPONSORS of ‘Team Lisa Raye’.
The former First Lady of Turks and Caicos has launch ‘LisaRaye Hair’… peddling various hair packages, lace front wigs and a flat iron, priced from $90.00 to $175.00. But Ms. McCoy’s REAL hustle appears to lie in the ‘Join Team Lisa Raye’ portion of her hair website.
“Everyone wants to have beautiful and healthy hair, but can’t necessarily afford to go to the salon every week. Well.. my flat iron solves that problem.” ~LisaRaye
Here’s the March 1, 2014 open letter to VH1 President Tom Calderone, featured on the petition to ‘Save Single Ladies’:
“In May 2011 when Single Ladies first aired on VH1, I admit to being a bit skeptical. First, I never watch VH1 and because I am really a crime drama/true investigation kind of television person, yet I was taken.
Stacy Littlejohn really did a great job of creating this show and I found the storyline to be quite interesting. Stacy Dash, LisaRaye McCoy, Charity Shea and the cast really made me enjoy Monday evenings at 9pm.
Season two found me in thirst, as I was happy to finally see the show’s return. Denise Vasi came in and though I missed Stacy, she brought her own spice to the show. I liked that, plus the added new storyline was intriguing. D.B. Woodside did what he does best and so beautifully. It was welcoming to see the build out of the “Ladies” individual lives beyond their sisterly hangouts.
Then came season three after a VERY long wait but I wasn’t disappointed. My hunger found food in each episode, the plot thickens way beyond fashion. Currently, I’m enjoying how Harold House Moore and Travis Winfrey’s characters are episodically expanding and would love to see more unfold.
Mr. Calderone, I ask you to truly reconsider your decision of canceling Single Ladies. You’re making a huge mistake! This was the only show that got me to watch VH1 and I’m sure many other fans out there can agree.
PLEASE —– RETHINK —– SINGLE LADIES!!!!
