The outspoken, sassy, Obama-hating conservative, Stacey Dash has inked a new deal that seems to be right up her alley.
Recently, Dash celebrated the 20th anniversary of the 1995 cult classic, “Clueless” but now she is moving on to more interesting and controversial endeavors. Rumors began circulating late last week that the 47-year-old actress would be joining Fox news, what some would call the politically biased and racist news station. But, it’s not longer hear-say The Hollywood Reporter has officially confirmed the news.
FOX News network has tapped the former Single Ladies star, who routinely makes waves with her conservative views, as a contributor. She will provide “cultural analysis and commentary across various daytime and primetime programs,” according to the announcement.
“Stacey is an engaging conversationalist whose distinctive viewpoints amongst her Hollywood peers have spawned national debates — we’re pleased to have her join Fox News,” Bill Shine, Executive Vice President of Programming for the network, said in a statement.
Dash has received a lot of backlash on social media for her outspoken conservative views. In the past, she has verbally attacked President Obama on FOX News, endorsed Presidential candidate Mitt Romney with her vote for the 2012 Presidential election, supported disgraced Food Network Host Paula Deen after allegations of racism at her businesses were reported, slammed Jay Z and Beyonce for visiting Cuba, and spoke out against Oprah Winfrey’s comments about Trayvon Martin’s death.
When Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade asked Dash whether her support for Romney had affected her career, Dash replied, “It hasn’t affected my career. I think that’s wrong as well. Hollywood is about capitalism. And if you make movies and the movies make money, they’re going to make the movies.”
Just last week, Dash appeared on daytime show Outnumbered, and her fans tuned in. As for her political bent, Dash has said on FOX’s air that the federal government “should not be a part of everything…I think that you should govern where you’re closest to home so that you can tailor your governing to the people’s needs. But for a big federal government to just throw a big blanket over an entire country and say ‘OK, we’re all a bunch of babies and now we’re all nice and warm and cozy’ is a bit ridiculous.”
