"I have to be back in L.A. with my children right now and the Single Ladies shooting location [in Atlanta] makes this impossible," Dash said in a statement to Russell Simmons' website Global Grind. "I wish VH1 the best of luck with the show in maintaining the strong fan base we developed in Season 1."
The show — which stars Dash, LisaRaye McCoy and Charity Shea as three best friends in the world of Atlanta fashion, fame and music — is VH1's first hourlong scripted series. It was recently renewed for a second season.
The network added, "VH1 respects Stacey's decision and her commitment to what she feels is best for her family. We thank her for all of her hard work in making Single Ladies a success right out of the gate, and we wish her nothing but the best in her future plans."
