Just a few weeks after announcing her pending divorce from her husband of eight years, Niecy Nash is finally opening up about her split with Jay Tucker.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the “Claws” star said despite their separation, there is still deep love between the two.
“For us, it’s easy because we love each other. The love has just taken on a different form, but [he’s] always gonna be my friend.”
The pair were married in June of 2011 and announced they were going their separate ways in October over social media.
“We believe in the beauty of truth. Always have,” the post reads. “Our truth is that in this season of our lives, we are better friends than partners in marriage. Our union was such a gorgeous ride. And as we go our separate ways now, we feel fortunate for the love we share — present tense.”

Niecy told interviewers that since the news broke, she’s just been focusing on herself. Don’t expect to see Niecy with a new boo anytime soon.
“I’m just over here drinking my water and healing,” she said. “I ain’t ready to put all this back on the block. It’s too much too soon,” she explained.
But the 49-year-old did have a bizarre request for whoever ends up with her ex next.
“I would love to interview any girl who’s gonna be on his block,” she said. “I gotta make sure he’s taken care of.”
If Tucker lets his ex be that involved in his next relationship, the actress will probably want to ensure her fomer lover is being physically catered to as well. Niecy famously advised women that giving their men oral sex every day would keep a happy home.
In her 2013 book, “Stomach Full, Penis Empty: A Woman’s Guide to a Happy Marriage” she told her readers that “a BJ a day keeps the divorce away.”
Well, it worked for a good 8 years.
