Lisa Raye is Just as Gorgeous as Ever in Season 3 of Single Ladies
In June 2011, Vh1 struck gold with the premiere of its first scripted television series, Single Ladies. I would attribute much of that success to two main characters, Lisa Raye and Stacey Dash with production by Queen Latifah’s “Flava Unit”. At 9:00pm*, the two-hour premiere of VH1’s first hour-long scripted series, Single Ladies , also drew an impressive 1.2 rating in the key P18-49 demo and 1.8 million total viewers. When combined with its 12am* encore, “ Single Ladies ” drew in 2.8 million total viewers. VH1′s new, hour-long scripted romantic comedy series “ Single Ladies ” follows Val, Keisha, and April – three best friends with different philosophies on sex and relationships, proving not all women have the same desires.
Now, 3 years later, with Lisa Raye as the major female mainstay (no shade to her phenomenal female co-stars) drawing millions of women in to see just how a sexy, savvy and single lady ought to live, ‘Single Ladies’ returns.
Lisa Raye is so perfect in her role as Keisha. Keisha is a great character to the world to know, love and most importantly observe. She commands a room, stays stylish but has been broken, lost, loveless and alone. How many of my #VainChicks can relate to that? What is so perfect about Lisa Raye being the woman to portray this character is that you believe it, ALL OF IT. It’s like Lisa Raye has already lived Keisha and now she is just revisiting it so that we can learn something. All her lil fabulous nieces looking to her like, “Diamond, you done come a long way”. Don’t look at the screen like that, yes I said it because I know yall say it to! What I love about this show is that it’s producers and writers seemed to have been paying attention to the amazing shows that cam before it. There are great pieces of “Girlfriends”, “Sex and The City”, “Living Single” and even a little “Gossip Girl” all meshed together with a modern twist. If I had to really describe the show and why I love it I would say, “Because it’s the modern woman guide to single life”. Queen Latifah, Flava Unit and Vh1 have done a great job of showing the heights of single life while faults and failures that inevitably arise. They sell us a dream while not allowing us to get too caught up with solely the fantasy. Needless to say I am tuned in the rest of this season. What about you?
