The Queen Latifah-produced primetime soap has “Sex and the City” aspirations, and for a lot of viewers, it may be their first time seeing Dash since she introduced “hymenally challenged” and “vehicular sex” to the pop culture lexicon as Dionne Davenport in “Clueless.”
She’s been a busy little bee, though. Here are some of our favorite (and least favorite) uses of her talent since we fell in love with her in 1995…
Low: “Illegal in Blue,” 1995
Capitalizing on a “Clueless” boost, this direct-to-video noir came out around the same time as Dash’s theatrical breakthrough. Unfortunately, it also included a pretty gritty sex scene.
High: “Clueless: the series,” 1996-1999
Alicia Silverstone may have had “better things” to do after the film — we saw “Excess Baggage,” honey — but Dash was on-board for the TGIF TV continuation. And good for her. Without the lead actress recast, Dash stepped in as the real star of the short-lived comedy.
Low: “Strip,” 1999-2000
A detective series starring Sean Patrick Flanery as a Las Vegas cop named “Elvis,” the UPN drama also featured Dash — and didn’t even last a season. [A moment of silence for UPN, please.]
High: “I Could Never Be Your Woman,” 2007
A memorable film? Not so much. But Dash’s supporting role as a bad actress who films anti-smoking PSAs between drags was a highlight in the project that saw her reunited with “Clueless” writer/director Amy Heckerling.
Double-High: “The Game,” 2009-2011
The BET (formerly CW) dramedy is one of our guiltiest pleasures — and though her tenure as the hyper-sexual sportscaster Camille was brief, we enjoyed every moment.
