Star of the Hilarious Cult-Classic Movie ‘Clueless’ Makes New Hampshire Home

I'm literally smiling and laughing just thinking about the cult classic, coming-of-age comedy Clueless. I mean, how many times have you seen it? I know I've seen it, and I'm not exaggerating, at least 20 times. The impeccable fashion and clothes, the attitude and cool kids' table fun, and of course the absolutely crushing-it slang and wit are worth seeing over and over again. So yes, I've watched it almost every year or two since it hit the theaters back in 1995.
Loosely based on Jane Austen's novel Emma, Alicia Silverstone, Stacey Dash, Brittany Murphy, and Paul Rudd are everything in the movie, along with, of course, Donald Faison, Breckin Meyer, and Dan Hedaya. Oh, and I loved Wallace Shawn, Twink Caplan, Elisa Donovan, and Jeremy Sisto. Filmed in just 40 days, beautiful, popular, and rich Beverly Hills High School students not only decide to give a new disheveled student a makeover, but also play matchmaker for two of their favorite teachers.
So, which actor or actress is calling the New Hampshire Seacoast home? The one and only Stacey Dash who so expertly and flawlessly played Dionne, creating one of the most beloved characters ever with the greatest fashion sense. As the bestie of Cher (played by Alicia Silverstone), Dash helped make Clueless one of the greatest award-winning comedies and teen movies of all time.
The two even reunited on TikTok recently. FUN!
She's my neighbor, which is why I know she's calling the Seacoast home right now. I mean, as if! So why the New Hampshire Seacoast? Well, why not?
According to Deadline, she's searching for redemption that may include a reality series to come called A New Thing with Stacey Dash. The show will take us on her journey of leaving Los Angeles for New Hampshire in pursuit of reinventing herself as an interior designer with a Portsmouth studio while slowly returning to the public eye. Her own website seems to confirm that. As you may recall, the 56-year-old has been a controversial figure for a few years, according to Huffington Post.
