A true television personality is not afraid to allow cameras into their personal lives and Niecy Nash is no different. In 2010 she allowed TLC to film her wedding to Jay Tucker in a two hour special called Niecy Nash’s Wedding Bash. The episode followed Nash through the preparation process all the way to the altar. Soon after, the station offered Niecy a reality TV series of her own called Leave it to Niecy. The show, which follows the lives of Niecy, her husband, and their three children, aired in 2012. She is now starring as Lollo Ballantine on the TV Land sitcom, The Soul Man, and as nurse Denise Ortley in the HBO comedy, Getting On.
