Another ex-ABC soaper makes good! Deadline is reporting All My Children's Denise Vasi has been tapped for the lead role in VH1's sexy, fun dramedy Single Ladies. Vasi's new character Raquel will fill the void left by Val (Stacey Dash).
Considering how harsh we've been here at Daytime Confidential about Vasi's acting chops as displayed on AMC, I'm sure some of you are expecting this to begin the portion of the blog post where I start freaking out about her joining one of my guilty pleasure sudsers, but nah.
I actually think Vasi will be a good fit for the show, however I think it would be smart to center the retooled Single Ladies on LisaRae McCoy's Keisha. Single Ladies is a frothy, light-hearted serial that doesn't require the skills of an Angela Bassett or a Meryl Streep. There's no doubt Vasi is a strikingly beautiful woman and can likely hold her on with the rest of the cast, including Charity Shea as April and Travis Winfery as Omar. All I know is, whoever they replaced Dash with, I am just glad my story is coming back for a second season! Will you be tuning in to see Denise Vasi on Season 2 of VH1's Single Ladies?
