Niecy Nash

Whether she was overhauling some of America's messiest homes or raising eyebrows with her barely-there red carpet outfits, Niecy Nash always commanded attention. With her trademark flower neatly tucked behind one ear, Nash became a household name as host of the Style Network's hit program "Clean House" (2004-11), where she and her crew of interior designers invaded cluttered homes and literally "cleaned house" by way of a giant garage sale. Viewers also knew her as the no-nonsense Deputy Raineesha Williams on the series "Reno 911!" (Comedy Central, 2003-09), an unscripted documentary-style program that spoofed the television series "Cops" (FOX, 1989-2013; Spike/Paramount Network, 2013- ). While Nash's raunchy comedy attracted a mostly grown-up audience, she also co-starred in the Disney 3D film "G-Force" (2009), a comedy-adventure about a covert government program that trains guinea pigs to save the world, and co-starred in the dark comedy "Getting On" (HBO 2013-15) before joining the ensemble cast of Ava DuVernay's acclaimed Civil Rights Era drama "Selma" (2014). She then returned to TV with a change of pace comedy-drama set in a nail salon, "Claws" (TNT 2017- ). With her unique brand of comedy, feisty personality, and unmistakable sense of style, Nash was undoubtedly one of television's most colorful, well-rounded personalities.
