PARTNER: Louis Van Amstel
PROFESSION: Actress/TV Host
BACKGROUND: If ever there was anyone poised to mop up the competition on the dance floor, it would have to be the host of a show called Clean House. That’s Niecy Nash!
The host and producer of the Style Network’s home makeover show, Clean House, Niecy is a two-time 2009 Daytime Emmy nominee and the new Celebrity Panelist for the entertainment news program The Insider.
Niecy recently won a 2010 Gracie Award for her well-known role as no-nonsense Officer Raineesha Williams on the Comedy Central hit Reno 911! and it’s spin-off film Reno 911: Miami.
In 2008, Niecy starred in her own FOX comedy series, Do Not Disturb. She is also well-known for her recurring role on the comedy series The Bernie Mac Show.
Niecy’s most recent film work includes Not Easily Broken and the Walt Disney Pictures’ G-Force. Additionally, Niecy is developing various television and film projects through her own production company, Chocolate Chick, Inc.
The proud mother of three adoring children, when asked what her hobbies are, Niecy proudly replies, "motherhood," which she considers her greatest success in life.
We’re sure all those kiddies keep Niecy on her toes. That should bode well for the fancy footwork she’ll need on the Dancing with the Stars stage. Just how far will Niecy go? We have no idea. But we can’t wait to find out!
