Niecy Nash Learned to Take the Meat and Leave the Bones

Actress Niecy Nash tells Ashley she knew at a young age that she wanted to be “Black, fabulous and on TV.” She spoke her destiny into being before she even knew what acting was. Growing up, Niecy’s family pushed her to find success in traditional professions like nursing or teaching, but she never gave up on becoming an actress. The tragic loss of her 17-year-old brother the day before she turned 23 helped Niecy realize she could use comedy to spare others the pain she was running from. She says she just had to “trust her gift.” Niecy explains her evolving relationships with herself and those she holds closest strengthens her commitment to never give up on love.
