Exclusive! Niecy Nash on Sherri Shepherd’s Divorce Drama: “Pray”

Published

on

News broke Monday morning that Sherri Shepherd had filed for divorce on the heels of her estranged husband, Lamar Sally filing for separation just last week.

Sherri has remained mum on the topic, not even addressing it on The View today. HipHollywood spoke to her good friend Niecy Nash who said she respected Shepherd’s privacy and just asked for people to pray.

“If you discern that they’re having a tough time pray, that’s the best thing you could do,” The Soul Man actress told HH exclusively. Shepherd and Sally met through Niecy’s husband Jay Tucker and both actresses were in each other’s weddings.

In the divorce doc, Shepherd cited irreconcilable differences while asking for a judge to honor their prenuptial agreement. Her husband of three year has asked for the pre-nip to be invalidated on the grounds of fraud and is asking for full custody of their unborn child (via surrogate).

Check back to HipHollywood.com for more on this developing story and part two of our revealing sit-down with Niecy Nash. Don’t forget to catch the season finale of The Soul Man Wednesday, May 14th on TV Land.

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
