Niecy Nash Coins The Term ‘Hersband’ For New Wife, Doesn’t Want Their Love To Be Labeled

“I just loved [men] when I loved them. And now I love her."

Celebrity News

Niecy Nash has had a very adventurous start to the 2021 year. After breaking the internet last year when it was revealed that she was newly married to wife Jessica Betts, who was the wedding singer at her previous wedding to husband, Jay Tucker, she stepped in to take on hosting duties for The Masked Singer (due to host, Nick Cannon contracting COVID).

And as busy as she is, she's managing to do it all on a broken foot.

All right then, sis!

Needless to say, this day-brightening actress is balancing quite a heavy plate, which she discussed while recently visiting The Ellen DeGeneres Show. And sis was dropping tea and gems while there, as she went into detail about all of what she's been up—from work, to her 51st birthday trip to Mexico with the fam.

When Ellen began to touch on her “coming out" story, Niecy explained further:

“I lovingly call [my wife] my 'hersband.' But a lot of people say like, 'oh, you came out' and I say came from out of where? You know what I mean? I wasn't anywhere to come out of. I wasn't living a sexually repressed life when I was married to men, I just loved them when I loved them. And now I love her."

Ellen agrees and says she understands where she's coming from, which Niecy continues:

“Some people are like, 'I don't get it.' My daughter told me 'mom you got to know how you identify' and I said, oh I do? And we watched this whole thing about...— and there were a thousand different things you could call yourself and I was more confused than ever."

This isn't the first time Nash has been preaching the I-love-who-I-love gospel. Since remarrying, she has told anyone who would listen, and she's OK with losing fans who have negative reactions to her marriage.

“Who/how I love has nothing to do with my art. I'm still a skilled, Emmy-nominated, award-winning actress."

Whew. *insert poetry snaps right tf here*

I’m sure a high percentage of people who chose to click this article either are fixers, former fixers, or maybe they want to understand why fixers feel the need to make it their responsibility to change everyone. Well, for one, barely anyone who fits the bill knows why they do what they do until it exhausts them—like myself. I have been a fixer for as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved fighting for the underdog. Something about being needed for the betterment of people’s lives has always felt very fulfilling to me. That is until I’d invested so much in many close relationships that it backfired on me. And like many fixers, I would question how I could have offered so much, yet people treated me anyhow in the end?

When I first heard about Harlem, the new Amazon series about four Black girlfriends in the city, I admit, I wasn't a fan. There, I said it. I'm a child of the golden era of Girlfriends, Living Single, Friends, Moesha, Sex and the City, and The L Word. My friends and I were real-life offspring of these constructs who had a lot in common with the women of those shows. Even after enjoying a season of the similar new Showtime series Run the World, I'd had enough of stories about friends "navigating their way through" their 20s, or 30s, or 40s. I loved these shows, but thought to myself, "Why do we need a Harlem? Can't we tell other stories?"

As someone who has always considered themselves beautiful at any size, I can't say that I have always loved my body. Sure, there have been moments where I thought I was the sexiest thing walking. But for the most part, all I saw when I looked in the mirror were flaws. My thighs were always too big. Butt full of dimples from cellulite. Boobs always in the way. And my arms too jiggly.
