Niecy Nash’s infectious personality and versatile acting skills have landed her fruitful roles in an already long and successful career.
From playing the ever-so-serious, yet side-splittingly hilarious Deputy Raineesha Williams on Comedy Central’s Reno 911, to hosting the reality TV show Clean House, Niecy has dabbled in just about every genre of entertainment.
Now, her acting career has begun to imitate real life in her new role on The Soul Man, alongside funnyman Cedric the Entertainer. The show, which premieres tonight, revolves around R&B superstar-turned-minister Reverend Boyce “The Voice” Ballentine, (played by Cedric) who is trying to give up the industry high life to get right with the Lord.
Turns out that this story isn’t too far from some things Niecy has experienced in her personal life; she reveals that her first marriage was to an R&B singer-turned-pastor!
Check out our exclusive interview with the lovely Niecy Nash in the video above.
Be sure to check out the premiere of her show The Soul Man tonight at 10 pm ET on TV Land.
