*Comedian and actress Niecy Nash is cooking up her own daytime talk show.

Nash previously hosted Style Network’s “Clean Hous”  between 2004 and 2011. 

News of the project coincides with Nash speaking out about the criticism she has received over her surprise wedding to singer Jessica Betts. 

“If I lost a fan because of who I love, then that wasn’t a real fan,” was the response from Nash while chatting with her Instagram followers.

“Who/how I love has nothing to do with my art. I’m still a skilled, Emmy-nominated, award-winning actress,” she wrote. Adding, “I didn’t stop being great at my craft because of where I lay my head … All I know is I’m happy and my projects are lit … Can’t wait for those who never stopped riding to see!”

As we reported, the “Claws” actress shocked the world with her marriage to Betts which came after she split from her second husband, Jay Tucker, in December.

The 50-year-old star claims her new lifestyle has nothing to do with her gender nor is she “coming out of the closet.” 

Most recently, Nash appeared alongside her new wife in the music video for Betts’ latest single, “Catch Me.”

The video shows the actress wearing a wedding dress on the beach and also features a recording of the couple reciting their wedding vows from their recent nuptials.

“I promise to always love you and to always choose you. You are a testament to the magic that happens when your heart is opened,” Nash says in the music video. “I will meet you there, wherever there is. You are the best thing that has ever happened to me.”

Nash married Betts on Aug. 29 in an intimate ceremony in Los Angeles. The “Claws” actress opened up about their love story to PEOPLE, saying Betts is “the most beautiful soul I have ever met in my life.”

“[My marriage] has absolutely nothing to do with gender and it has everything to do with her soul,” she said.
