Niecy Nash Says She Had Never Been with a Woman Before Marriage to Jessica Betts

Niecy Nash is appearing on Facebook Watch’s Red Table Talk and she’s speaking out about her marriage to Jessica Betts after previously being married to two men.

Prior to her marriage announcement in August of 2020, Niecy had never addressed her sexuality.

The 51-year-old comedian and actress revealed she had “never been with a woman before” her relationship with Jessica.

Niecy filed for divorce from her husband Jay Tucker back in December 2019 after announcing their split in October. She was also previously married to Don Nash from 1994–2007.

She also revealed the reactions her three kids, Dia, 21, Donielle, 25, and son Dominic, 28, had.

“My daughters were like, ‘Wait what?’ ” she said. “My youngest daughter, she reminded me, she was like, ‘Wait a minute mom, are you the same mom that was like girl, I’m strictly dickly?’ And I was like, ‘Wah, wah. Like yeah, but no.’ And my son was like, ‘Wooow.’”

“A lot of people say that, like, ‘Oh, you came out!’ and I say, ‘Well, from out of where?’ You know what I mean?” she continued. “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.”

“[My marriage] has absolutely nothing to do with gender and it has everything to do with her soul,” she added. “She is the most beautiful soul I have ever met in my life.”
