Stacey Dash joins FOX News as a contributor

Stacey Dash

Fox News announced on Wednesday that Stacey Dash has signed with the network to be their contributor.

The actress, best known for her role in 1995 hit Clueless, will provide cultural analysis and commentary across FOX News’ daytime and primetime programs.

“Stacey is an engaging conversationalist whose distinctive viewpoints among her Hollywood peers have spawned national debates – we’re pleased to have her join Fox News,” said Bill Shine, network executive vice president of news.

Stacey is no stranger to politics and has already turned in several appearances on the network. In 2012 she endorsed Republican Mitt Romney in the presidential election. She received a lot of backlash from the black community for going against a black candidate, but also landed several television appearances – including a day as a guest panelist on The View and CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight, to discuss her political views.

Appearing on Fox & Friends last month, Dash talked about supporting Romney and said: “I woke up the next morning and my life changed. I had death threats, people calling me Uncle Tom, telling me I didn’t like black people.”

When the show’s co-host Brian Kilmeade asked her if it had affected her career, the actress 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.”
