Stacey Dash’s public endorsement of Mitt Romney has caused a lot of shade to be thrown her way since the Clueless actress made her political stance known on Twitter. As we recently stated, we did not take the endorsement seriously, not because we feel black people can’t vote for Mitt Romney, but because Stacey Dash’s methods of announcing her views seemed very staged and attention seeking like. Most celebrities usually sign up to help the campaigns of the candidates they support, like Clint Eastwood and Jay-Z and Beyonce have done, but Stacey opted for doing a photo shoot and tweeting. Regardless, she received a lot of backlash for her choice from her fans on Twitter, and the response from her peers in the industry hasn’t been any better. Many have questioned her intentions, but most of the criticisms came with shade. Most notably, Kimora Lee Simmons, who stated that Stacey Dash’s endorsement of Mitt Romney won’t mean much since no one really knows who she is.

Well now it appears that Vivica Fox is adding her two cents, and shade to the controversy. When she was asked during an interview how she felt as a fellow black actress about Stacey’s endorsement, she went in.

She says:

“I didn’t know she was a Republican. I’ll start there. Second, I didn’t know why she had to do a photo shoot in a Baywatch red swim suit, with the boobs in the whole flag behind her. And she doesn’t have a job or something to promote right now. I just didn’t get it.

So to each its own. And she’s entitled to her opinion. But it was just surprising that she first of all, was a Republican and that she did it the way that she did. Most politicians when you support them, you support them with class. You don’t need to do a swim suit shoot. So that’s just my take on that.”

Watch the clip below:


  1. But did she lie? Stacey can vote for whoever she wants, but we all know this was nothing but a PR stunt. It backfired. Now everyone in Hollywood doesn’t want to deal with her anymore. There’s a way to endorse a candidate and that was not it. She made herself look like a joke.

  2. I think Stacey hurt herself with that damn photo shoot. She should have just said her peace and donated to the damn campaign That’s the genuine way to do it. Now she looks silly. I think she lost a lot of support and burned a lot of bridges with this.

    1. Truth. But she got the attention she wanted, so maybe that’s all that matters. Her career was done way before this because people say she’s too hard to work with.

  3. I feel this was unnecessary. People can vote for whoever they want. And they should not be ridiculed for it. Yeah this seemed like a stunt, but we’re basically angry at a woman for exercising her right to vote for who she pleases. That’s not cool.

    1. I understand what you’re saying, but let’s also be clear about what Stacey Dash’s actions really mean. She’s basically using a serious situation to promote herself. That is not cool. There is a way to endorse a candidate. It just wasn’t authentic. I know black republicans and some of them even question her sincerity.
