Niecy Nash in talks to host daytime talk show
Actress Niecy Nash already has a hell of a resume. The 50-year-old has shown us her acting skills for years on shows like Reno 911!, Claws and I have never. And of course, his roles in When they see us and Mrs. America showcase his considerable dramatic talents. Now, the talented artist is set to host a daytime talk show, with CBS Television Distribution reportedly in talks with Nash about a possible syndicated gig.
According to Hollywood journalist, a presentation of the potential series will be filmed shortly. CTD is also late The Drew Barrymore Show, which apparently is one thing!
It wouldn’t be Nash’s first time hosting a hosting concert. She won a Daytime Emmy for her work hosting Style Network’s Clean house, and also hosted guests Today and Access Hollywood Live.
Nash will also join a talented but too short list of black women who have soloed their own daytime talk shows. Wendy Williams and Tamron Hall currently have their own eponymous shows. Before them were Queen Latifah, Keke Palmer (who at 20 hosted the short-lived “Just Keke” in 2014), Tyra Banks and the incomparable Oprah Winfrey.
If Nash and CTD strike a deal, it will mark another highlight of what has been a truly successful year for the actress, who married singer Carole Denise Betts in a surprise wedding last August. Nash had never spoken publicly about his same-sex relationship before that.
Earlier this week, Nash responded to a fan who asked her what she thought of anti-gay supporters discouraged by her recent marriage.
“If I lost a fan because of who I love, then that wasn’t a real fan,” Nash wrote in the comments section of an Instagram post (h / t Gasoline). “Who / how I love has nothing to do with my art. I’m still a talented, Emmy nominated actress.
