LisaRaye McCoy is about to show audiences why she fell out with former BFF’s Star Jones and Vivica Fox.
According to the New York Daily News, LisaRaye is about to set it off on her upcoming TV One reality show. Here’s what they’re saying:
The actress, who starred in the Will Smith-produced sitcom “All of Us” from 2003 to 2007, says a slew of her celebrity friends abandoned her after her divorce last year from Turks & Caicos Premier Michael Misick, and she plans to blast them on her still-untitled show.
First up is former “View” co-host Jones, who raised McCoy’s ire by supposedly supporting Misick after the divorce. “LisaRaye hosted Star at her home in the Turks & Caicos for three weeks when Star was going through her divorce from Al Reynolds,” says a source close to the TV One series. “When the tables turned and McCoy’s marriage ended, Star was helping LisaRaye’s husband.”
That allegedly included counseling Misick and even recommending her personal damage-control publicist to aid him during the messy split.
McCoy says she was also double-crossed by former best friend Fox, who allegedly shared McCoy’s most intimate secrets with Misick. “LisaRaye hasn’t spoken to Vivica since,” said the source.
The list doesn’t stop there – in fact, it gets worse. McCoy also counts “106 & Park” host Rosci as an enemy, accusing the BET star of having an illicit affair with Misick. Even McCoy’s former TV hubby on “All of Us” has fallen out of favor – McCoy claims actor Duane Martin provided a mistress for her then-husband in an effort to do business on Turks & Caicos.
“LisaRaye intends to use her show as an outlet to air it all,” says the source. “She’s been quiet until now, but when she starts sharing these stories, it’ll make ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ look like a gathering of church ladies.”
McCoy’s fair-weather friends aren’t the only ones who may make headlines: She herself is battling rumors of an affair with the Rev. Al Sharpton. After the civil rights leader hosted a birthday reception for McCoy in Washington, D.C., last month, rumors of a romance began swirling – but McCoy is adamant their relationship is strictly professional.
Reached through her publicist, Jones said: “I would never discuss someone else’s personal business with the media.”
