Niecy Nash Opens Up About Divorce & Not Staying Married For Validation


Niecy Nash was given the Vanguard Award at Essence’s 13th annual Black Women in Hollywood luncheon. During her very honest speech, her dress started to come undone. Like a true friend, Ava DuVernay stayed on stage after presenting her with the award to help her friend not have a wardrobe malfunction. Niecy talked about how her family could not understand why she was divorcing her husband. That he didn’t beat her (domestic violence) and he was good looking. She said no one asked about her own personal happiness within the marriage. She said a big myth she inherited from the women in her family is that you are nothing without a man. Get one, keep one, no matter what because they will validate you.
