Former DWTS Star Gets Hitched

Former Dancing With the Stars contestant Niecy Nash got married this weekend. Find out why she didn't wear a quinceanera gown for her second wedding.


Niecy Nash didn't literally dance down the aisle, but she did walk down it to marry electrical engineer Jay Tucker over the Memorial Day weekend. The former Clean House host and Dancing With the Stars contestant married her fiancé on Saturday in a ceremony that took place at the Church Estate Vineyards in Malibu, California.

"It was a dream come true to be surrounded by family and friends as I married the most wonderful man," Nash told Life & Style. She stunned in an off-white strapless gown with a ruffled train. A flower and lace headband adorned her updo. She was supported by 10 bridesmaids who wore floor-length purple dresses, and singer and actress Cheryl Lee Ralph was Nash's matron of honor.

Nash and Tucker have been engaged since September 2010. They were surrounded by 200 friends and family members, including Sherri Shepherd of The View and Holly Robinson-Peete of The Talk.

So what's the deal with the quinceanera dress? In January, Nash told People that she got married the first time, over 16 years ago, in a quinceanera dress. "It was just a mess," she said.

If you want to watch the nuptials, Niecy Nash's Wedding Bash, a two-hour special, will air on TLC on June 4.

It looks like Nash got it right this time around, as she wore a real wedding dress and married a man she seems very in love with. We wish Niecy Nash and Jay Tucker the best in their new marriage.

Niecy deserves to lead a full life as a married woman and stay with her children. It was a beautiful wedding but it was sad to see that she did not wear her dream wedding dress, a beautiful dress she looked gorgeous in, and wore a dress that was bunched up material with oversize ruffles because of her whiney, manipulative, controlling mother who has to have her own way. Watching the show made it obvious that her mother has a problem with control and it was low of her to put Niecy on a guilt trip to make her give up her dream dress. I doubt the marriage will last with her mother in the middle of the home controlling and manipulating everything and everyone around her. Hopefully when the time comes to save the marriage Niecy will be able to stand up to her mother and move her out. Before it comes to that, maybe her husband will have what it takes to take control of the marriage and home including her mother. I wonder what else Niecy has had to say No to and give up in her life because of her mother's manipulation. Niecy needs to learn to say No to her mother and make her own decisions to make herself happy instead of doing what it takes to make her mother happy.

Her time on Full House is more memorable that the DWS show. 8 yrs on Clean House, 3 months on DWS. You decide which is more important.
