Dash to Publish “There Goes My Social Life” Book via Regnery Publishing

There goes Stacey Dash’s life

The 48-year-old part-Mexican American actress, former Clueless star and Fox News contributor has signed a deal to publish There Goes My Social Life, Regnery Publishing revealed.

Stacey Dash

The book, scheduled for publication this summer, will discuss how Dash became a conservative, her upbringing in the South Bronx and her Hollywood career.

In a statement, Dash credited these things for her “strong opinions about the value of a good education, the importance of family, the inanity of political correctness, and the power of personal responsibility.”

Dash has a reputation as one of Hollywood’s most outspoken female conservatives. In 2012, she announced her disappointment in the Barack Obama-led White House, and endorsed Mitt Romney for president on Twitter, receiving enormous backlash from the movie and music industries.

More recently, Dash has made news for criticizing Patricia Arquette‘s Oscar acceptance speech championing equal pay for women.

“First of all, Patricia Arquette needs to do her history,” Dash said on an appearance on Fox News. “In 1963, Kennedy passed the equal-pay law. It’s still in effect. I didn’t get the memo that I didn’t have any rights.”

She criticized the controversy over the lack of diversity in this year’s Academy Awards nominees and the snubbing of Selma in the acting and directing categories. 

“I do know that if it were something conservative and there were not any black people in the audience or on the stage getting awards, there would be a lot of problems. [It’s a] double standard. They’re hypocrites.”

Regnery Publishing has had success publishing conservative females, including Phyllis SchlaflyAnn Coulter and Michelle Malkin. Dash is the first actress to secure a book deal with the company.

Dash joins the news channel as a paid contributor, offering cultural analysis and commentary on various daytime and primetime programs.

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

She joins a list of contributors that includes Karl Rove, James Carville, George Will, Dennis Miller and Sarah Palin.

Dash was criticized in the black community for endorsing Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney instead of Democrat Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election.

She has guest starred on The Game and most recently The Exes. She also starred in the first season of VH1‘s original series Single Ladies.
