This week, we revisit one of Jay's favorite conversations with the incomparable Niecy Nash. In her own words, Niecy has made it "from the hood to Hollywood." She talks to Jay about her early days in Hollywood with clarity–and hilarity.
The 2022 Oscars may be infamous now for very different reasons, but this interview originally happened the month prior, when the nominations were still being scrutinized for lacking diversity. Niecy got real about the deeper reasons the Academy so often overlooks Black women, and why she isn't looking for its approval.
Her outlook is faith-based and positive, not in small part because she has found love again with her wife, musician Jessica Betts. As she reflects on her evolving sexuality, Niecy confirms that finally, she feels seen.
