VH1 Finds its Next Single Lady

"White Collar," "All My Children" Actress Denise Vasi Joins Fellow Leads LisaRaye McCoy and Charity Shea in VH1 and Flavor Unit's Hit Scripted Series "Single Ladies"

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Dec. 5, 2011 -- VH1 has cast scripted cable (USA's "White Collar") and daytime soap opera (ABC's "All My Children") alumnus Denise Vasi in a brand new role as series co-lead in the network's hit scripted series "Single Ladies," alongside fellow returning actresses LisaRaye McCoy and Charity Shea. "Single Ladies" previously received a second season greenlight after averaging 2.8 million total viewers during premieres plus first encores in its first season. "Single Ladies" season 2 will begin filming in Atlanta in January and premiere in early summer, 2012 on VH1.

Vasi is cast as "Raquel," a close friend of Keisha (LisaRaye McCoy). Raquel is a savvy business woman from a prominent Southern family on a quest to discover passion. Vasi's recent credits include roles in films "When in Rome" and "What's Your Number," and television roles including HBO's "How to Make it in America," USA's "White Collar" and ABC's "All My Children" among others.

"Denise is the perfect addition to the 'Single Ladies' cast," said Flavor Unit Entertainment Executive Producer Queen Latifah. "She is bringing a fun, new element to the show."

"We are thrilled to welcome Denise to the cast of 'Single Ladies,'" said Jeff Olde, EVP Original Production and Programming, VH1. "It was a rare and wonderful moment during the audition when everyone in the room immediately knew we had found our 'Raquel.' Denise's beauty, style, grace and humor leap from the screen and we can't wait to share her with our viewers and fans of the show."

"Single Ladies" is a romantic comedy series about Keisha, Raquel and April - best friends with different philosophies on love, sex and relationships, proving not all women have the same desires. Keisha (LisaRaye McCoy) is a former video dancer who believes in making her own luck, her own money and choosing men with her head instead of her heart. April (Charity Shea,) had found the "perfect" man for the "ideal" marriage - but is learning that marriage does not always mean happily ever after. Season 2 will introduce Raquel (Denise Vasi) a sophisticated business woman coming into her own and calling the shots. "Single Ladies" is a modern, sexy series set in the world of Atlanta fashion, music, and celebrity that explores women's different approaches to relationships.
