“Stacey is an engaging conversationalist whose distinctive viewpoints amongst her Hollywood peers have spawned national debates – we’re pleased to have her join Fox News,” Bill Shine, Executive Vice President of Programming for the network, said in a statement.

Fox News noted Dash sparked controversy during the 2012 presidential election when she endorsed GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney on her personal Twitter account and “subsequently endured heavy criticism for supporting a conservative nominee.”  Dash’s acting career has spanned more than 20 years, including playing Dionne in the 1995 movie Clueless, as well as roles in Renaissance Man, Mo’ Money, and View from the Top, among others.
