Niecy Nash cries at ‘DWTS’

Comedian and actress Niecy Nash showed a different side at Dancing with the Stars as she set the dance floor on fire with her partner Louis Van Amstel.  They danced an emotional piece about a couple falling in love, despite the many obstacles that came their way.

The comedic star, born in Palmdale, California, has expressed that she has a good boyfriend, the kind who rubs her feet at night. Her breakdown during the DWTS rehearsals can be credited to the emotions she felt about the story that they were unraveling through dance steps.

“If I couldn’t be with my boyfriend, I would be devastated,” Niecy tells her DWTS partner Louis.

The judges, particularly Judge Carrie Ann Inaba praised her for their emotional performance. Although, Nash received a few well-chosen negative comments about her footwork after a stumble, she and Louis received a 21/30 for their moves.

Nash is famous for hosting Clean House which airs on the Style Network. She is also best known for her role in Reno 911 which is shown at Comedy Central.
