Cedric the Entertainer and Niecy Nash’s hit TV Land show “The Soul Man” is making its way back to a television near you for its third season and on Monday night we got a chance to learn a little more about the show and why it resonates with African American audiences so well. In speaking with Niecy Nash about her character, Lolli, who’s Cedric’s wife, we, of course, asked her what we can expect to see this season, but also what viewers can learn from her character. Here’s what she said.
“The biggest thing that people can learn from my character and her relationship with Cedric is that she’s happily married and that happily married people do exist. It’s not a myth. Those people really are real. Even though we have problems, we work through them in love. It doesn’t make us perfect people; we’re imperfect people who just happen to be perfect for each other.”
I like how that sounds.
Check out the video above as Niecy talks about creating such great chemistry with Cedric by drawing from her own marriage and how she feels about the state of black women in television. What do you think?
