Stacey Dash came on the Meredith Vieira show to plug her upcoming book — There Goes My Social Life. She also talked about her relationships with men but the interview went to the left when it came to pay equality.
Stacey refused to accept all of the receipts Meredith gave her when she talked about her own experiences being lowballed in pay because of her gender.
3 things from the interview
1. She has taken a vow of celibacy
Stacey said that casting her “pearls” before swine & not holding it valuable is what she was doing. No more sex before marriage & she is not capable of having casual sex. She doesn’t judge women who have done it. She had sex with all three of her husbands before marriage and it wasn’t about them it was more about her (why it didn’t work out)
Bill O’Reilly is the perfect man to her because he says what he means and he means what he says.
2. On women wanting equal pay
Stacey says it’s an excuse just like race. Stop making excuses and if there are opportunities seize them & be prepared for them — and be the best, if that’s what it takes. And If you have to be extraordinary be extraordinary. When Meredith told her that equal pay will come when her 22-year-old daughter is 65 — Stacey said she doesn’t know if that is true.
3. Stacey tried it with passive aggressiveness
Things got uncomfortable when Stacey started to put a little more bass in her voice in response to Meredith saying how she has been shortchanged in pay over the years because of her gender.
Stacey also said she won’t put her fate in anything other than her own action & is in charge of her destiny — she is not a victim. Meredith caught on to the low-key shade & said she was not a victim — she is pissed off.
Stacey kept on talking– “If you want to be pissed off, be pissed off about it and work harder ” She also said the complaining has to stop because there are laws — that say men & women’s pay should be equal.
Stacey’s expression when Meredith said women’s pay still isn’t equal to a man’s — despite what she said.
The most important lesson Stacey learned: Not to be validated by a man.
