Cedric the Entertainer and Niecy Nash sat down with EURweb associate LaCora Stephens on a new set that will be introduced this season (hint: Boyce will be co-owner of a bar/restaurant).
“The season is really turned up with more focus on the love and relationship instead of the ‘churchy’ aspect,” Cedric told LaCora. ”However, the backdrop is still the same, as I am still a man on transition. I think people are going to enjoy it, it’s more energy and the episodes are really funny.”
Niecy Chimed in: “It so much fun! We turned the whole show all the way up; I’m excited!”
When asked how does it feel to be a part of a television show that uplifts black love, Niecy said:
“I didn’t want to do something where their just married for the sake of being married, I wanted to be in love! I love being a Black woman in love with a Black man on television…I Love It!”
But don’t let the chemistry fool you! The two of them are very, very married to OTHER people. When asked if their spouses ever complained about the “great chemistry” Cedric said he can imagine that their mates watching it would say: “I know you’re a good actor, but pull up!” He explained, the chemistry is real because in so many ways they have come to have a great affection with each other by being on set every day.
Niecy mentioned that they have new storylines where Cedric brother’s Stamps moves in and her sister is introduced. She also said that several celebrities have appeared like Kim Wayans, Dawnn Lewis, Jamie Kennedy and others. Simply put, “we have real life story lines that can apply to anyone’s life.”
