I’m Team Robin Givens

Who do you think should take over the role of Valerie ‘Val’ Stokes on VH1’s hit series ‘Singles Ladies?’

Though many names have been thrown around, only one actress in my book can single handedly pull off the role AND add a new dynamic to the character’s somewhat lackluster personality.

And though the actress I have in mind may not seem like the most obvious choice, I think if you are familiar enough with her work, then you know she can easily pull off the role of Val, AND add an extra bit of spice that I believe the character needs.

So who am I talking about, you ask? Well, the one and only Robin Givens, of course.

Robin has long been one of Hollywood’s most underrated black actresses. Despite that, however, she has still managed to show amazing depth in the roles she has taken on, and at a healthy 46-years of age, she still has a killer face and body to match.

I can totally see Robin in this role and hope that whoever casts the role of Val, looks outside the typical names that are being thrown around at the moment.


  1. Meagan is too young to be believed to have been college friends with LisaRaye’s character. Robin would believed as the age. However because Stacey played the character as perky and in love with love I don’t think that Robin has that feeling coming from her.

  2. Great pic!!! They could alter the Val character and Robin would show her lighter side when needed…plus off-set some of the bad acting…love Lisaraye, but…it would be QL’s best pic…it is a soap opera…where anything goes!

    Team Robin!!!

  3. hmmmm yea…… Robin Givens is the best choice out of all the people I have heard.

  4. No ROBIN GIVENS she don’t know how to act. She’s no comparison to STACEY DASH. SORRY!!!!!!!

  5. It would be absolutely terrific were Robin Givens to come back to regular-series TV via “Single Ladies.” She is without a doubt the unmistakable queen of the black celebrity/entertainment field and it would be marvelous to see her every week again. Here’s hoping Robin and the “Single Ladies” cast get together for keeps.
