“Is this the trailer for Clueless 2,” one comment read.

One person hilariously wrote, “Yep… Biggie and Pac have a reunion concert next week also Stacey!”

“GIRL. I’m just preparing for the stitches and duets tomorrow, creators you’ve been summoned,” someone responded.

Last year, The Blast reported on Dash’s addiction to pills.

In October, the actress revealed that she was battling pill addiction, and it was pretty severe over the course of several years.

The "Clueless" actress shared her truth with Dr. Oz on his daytime talk show, The Dr. Oz Show, that aired Oct. 14, 2021.

“I was taking 18-20 pills a day,” she admitted.

The doctor warned her of how dangerous that amount can be even now that she is sober.

Plus, he pointed out the obvious, “18-20 Vicodin a day, that’s expensive!”

His response prompted Dash to admit that she lost “everything” thanks to the addiction. The conservative noted that she spent “about five to ten grand” a month on Vicodin.

Dash prefaced her interview with Dr. Oz in a Facebook post on Oct. 13th  describing the reveal as her “darkest secret”.

“Tomorrow, I will be sharing my deepest, darkest secret. I thank the Lord for being able to say that I have grown more over the last 5 years than I have in my entire life,” she shared. “I am so blessed to be surrounded by people who have loved and supported me through my most challenging time. Thank you all!”
