Stacey Dash's Ex-Talent Agent Goes on the Defensive

Stacey Dash's former talent agent goes on the defensive. "We stopped working with Stacey due to other issues"

Stacey Dash revealed in her new bock There Goes My Social Life: From Clueless to Conservative, Dash revealed that no only did she get blacklisted in Hollywood, but her talent agency also dropped her because she was conservative. "I just lost my agent because of my political beliefs," says Dash, referring to the agency CESD, with which she signed in September. "They sent me an email telling me that a casting director said, 'We give you credit for pitching her with a straight face.' " However, her former agent denies the story saying, "We stopped working with Stacey due to other issues, but it had nothing to do with her political views," he told The Hollywood Reporter. As for what those issues were, Gossett declined to elaborate because "I don't feel it's appropriate." He would say that, in fact, he supported her sharing her beliefs. "We supported her political opinions, and we felt there could potentially be positive outcomes from those beliefs during an election cycle, especially. We were totally behind Stacey," he adds. "We're not the type of agency that would represent or not represent someone based on their political [views]. Our talent is recognized for their talents. She should be careful about saying that because her claims are false." I guess we will never know the true story of what really happened. Related: What do you think?
