Its Niecy or None!
Famous American comedian and actress, Carol Denise “Niecy” Nash lands the cover of Essence Magazine’s September issue where she opened up about life, and many more. After hosting the Style Network show ‘Clean House’ from 2003 to 2010, for which she won an Emmy Award in 2010, she gained prominence in the entertainment industry and since then, she has starred in a good number of movies and shows including Claws, Scream Queens and Getting On.During her discussion with Essence, the actress reflected on her humble beginnings, having an undying faith and balancing motherhood with a career. She also talked about switching up the characters she played in movies and how it boosted her career.For a long time, the industry was polite, but they were like, ‘Dear, you have a lane. You do broad comedy. Stay over there. I had to be a lady in waiting and bide my time until they started to recognize. My first time doing dramatic work garnered me back-to-back Emmy nominations…You’ve got to figure out how to get your do-over. She said.“If you look at my track record, ‘She saw her mother get shot. She buried her only brother. She went through a horrible divorce. She lost her church.’ And to look at [my life], in many ways that does feel like a Cinderella story,” Nash told ESSENCE for her September 2017 cover story.Credit: Essence
