Victoria Rowell Books Three-Episode Stint on VH1’s Single Ladies!



Ex-All My Children star Denise Vasi won't be the only daytime alum among the Season 2 cast of VH1's hit, primetime sudser Single Ladies. Former The Young and the Restless fan fave Victoria Rowell has booked a three-episode guest stint!

Rowell will portray Veronica Vanderbilt, an attorney who works for Raquel (Vasi). Veronica is also the ex-girlfriend of Sean, played by One Life To Live's Terrell Tilford. Look for Genoa City's ex-Drucilla to debut in early August. Single Ladies returns May 28 at 9 PM EST on VH1.

    I don’t have cable, but I am gonna definitely check those episodes out on the website. I have only seen one episode of this show, but I have only heard positive things about it overall. I hope they don’t make her shoot scenes with Denise Vasi. Vasi was horrid on AMC, and I can’t imagine that her work has gotten any better since then. I could be wrong, but I doubt it.

    I wish a network show would pick up Victoria, but at least she’s being embraced by a show that values African American actresses, who too often get shafted by mainstream Hollyweirdos.

    Well, considering she’s playing Denise’s character’s lawyer, LOL, I guess there will be slim chances of that.

    Single Ladies is a good, light, soapy summer show. It’s what today’s soaps wish they could be. The acting isn’t phenomenal, but for the kind of show that it is, it’s good.

    Marcelle–

    Thanks for pointing that out. I didn’t read the article entirely. I just read that she was airing on the show. lol. I sometimes look before I leap when it comes to articles and post my thoughts before reading the entire story/article. I am gonna have to work on that……. ;)

    Great to see her on our screens again. Victoria Rowell, Renee Jones, Tamera Tunie, Amelia Marshall and Debbie Morgan are truly acting gems when it comes to daytime history. Now if I could get all five of these sistah’s on one soap or primetime drama it would be on!

    No worries. I often skim myself, LOL. Denise can’t be worse than Stacy Dash though. When LisaRaye is the best actress on the show…lmao. But again, like I mentioned in all honesty it’s a decent little show. I was entertained.

    Seeing her looking so stunning makes me sad in the sense that she was such an incredible part of the rich tapestry that Y&R used to be. :( Still, I’ll be very happy to tune in to watch her, as I know she’ll make the most of her time with these episodes. I’d love to see her on contract over the full season… 0:)

    This reminds me of that Robert Townsend comedy sketch of a soap featuring an All black cast (including Stephanie E. Williams who played Amy on Y&R), which was hilarious! The first time I saw the actor John Witherspoon (who played Ice Cube’s Dad on Friday) using the word ‘coordinate’.

    I don’t have cable either but I’ll be checking the website and/or hulu to see if I can watch a bit. I only know of this show through DC so I know very little about the storyline, but I relish the chance to see what Victoria Rowell is up to. Glad to see actors whose work I like shine in other projects. I just saw a clip on the We Love Soaps website from Nikita and was reminded how talented Lyndsey Fonseca (original Colleen Carlton/Y&R) is. What memories of what Y&R used to be!

    MSAGENT, if U enjoyed Lyndsey Fonseca as Colleen, U might like on the WB show,
    NIKITA. She has grown into a beautiful young lady. NIKITA won’t be back until the fall now, but they have done it for a couple years now.

    Thanks yojoromo4469.

    I’ve definitely fallen behind on my TV viewing over the past couple of years but thank goodness for the Internet and the likes of hulu. Is NIKITA based on La Femme Nikita?? Just curious. I guess I can do a bit of research and find out myself (lol). I’ll see if i can check out some older episodes. Thanks.

    I think V.R. has been fairly busy but she hasn’t been doing a whole lot of series work. I don’t know what the reasons are/were but I know she has been promoting books and her causes with raising funding for her foundation which helps children who reach adulthood and are being phased out of the foster care system. She seems to do a lot of appearances and guest TV spots.

    Not trying to be catty, but looks as though Ms. Vasi has had some…ahem…major “work” done.
    (She wasn’t the least bit busty in the reruns of OLTL they’re showing on SOAPNET now.)

    Well thank God someone has the smarts to employ Victoria on their show! Y&R is truly missing the boat by not bringing Drucilla back. I’m really surprised that she hasn’t been on tv more since then! Hope she is on Single Ladies longer!

    Victoria Rowell is lucky to anywhere. She had a couple minute gif on Ghost Whisper a couple years back and was horrible. She is banned from YR and will never be back on that show, thanks to her big mouth.
