Niecy specifically gave a shout-out to three friends – “Sherri Shepherd, Ava DuVernay, and the Big O, Oprah Winfrey!”

Andy and fellow guest Leslie Jordan then asked Niecy if she received a wedding gift from Oprah.

“Did I? Of course I did!” Niecy said with a laugh. “I got one of her favorite things! Which is this beautiful cashmere blanket.”

“But it’s, like, jumbo,” she continued. “So we wrap up in it in the movie room all the time!”

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.”

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

Niecy and Jessica tied the knot back in August 2020. This is the third marriage for Niecy, who was previously married to Jay Tucker from 2011 to 2020 and Don Nash from 1994 to 2007.

Also during her interview, Niecy shared how she and Jessica were friends for years before they got romantically involved.

“We were probably friends for about four and a half years,” Niecy explained. “I was already divorced and we were still friends, and we went to go eat crabs.”

“Ah, that’s it. That’s the gay thing,” Ellen joked, before Niecy teased, “It’s a gateway people. If you don’t want this life, don’t go eat crabs.”

“Do not go to eat crabs with your friend,” Ellen responded. “That’s what will do it.”
