Niecy Nash Talks Opening Doors, Self-Love, and New Show “Claws” on Sway In The Morning

Niecy Nash stopped by Sway In The Morning to talk her latest show “Claws” and helping out people within the industry.

Nash explains that the role of Desna Simms basically fell in her lap; the writers of the show reached out to her. While choosing the remaining cast members, the star suggested Karrueche Tran for the role of Virginia Loc. “I’ve never gotten a job and not given someone else a job,” she said.

When asked advice for people trying to separate their personal lives from their professionals, like Karrueche Tran, Nash said, “divorce the mindset you were baptized into as a child.” She also went on to say one can surpass hardship if you, “love yourself enough to live your best life.”
