"Clueless" star headed to Fox News?
"Clueless" star headed to Fox News?

Democrats and liberals will have fun over the irony, but Fox News is close to signing one of the stars of the 1995 hit movie, "Clueless."

Fox News is looking to broaden their cast of regular contributors and a new name might be coming on board sooner rather than later. According to Page Six via the New York Post, Stacey Dash, known for her role as Dionne Davenport in the film, is on the verge of signing with Fox News to become a regular network contributor. It wasn't until 2012 that Dash came onto the political scene when she took to Twitter to endorse Republican nominee, Mitt Romney. Dash appeared on Fox News recently to speak about the negative backlash she received for endorsing the former governor of Massachusetts.

"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. Ridiculous things that I didn't really care to hear … It made me feel more confident in my belief. It made me feel that I needed to stand up more."

Page Six also reports that in addition to her possible role with Fox News, she is in talks for a satirical television comedy series titled “Stacey Dash is Normal,” based around her life as single mother and Republican in the liberal dominated Hollywood. Page Six attempted to get a response from Fox News, but the reps had no comment.
