It is hard to believe we first fell in love with the beautiful Nia Long way back in 1994. Then we knew her as “Lisa,” the fiancee of Will Smith on his hit series The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Nia was beautiful then and she is GORGEOUS now, having aged like fine wine to perfection! It is goes without saying that “Black Don’t Crack,” but Nia is living proof of this! That’s why she is this week’s Celebrity Crush!
We missed her a great deal in the early 2000’s when she took some time away from acting to be a mother and wife. In recent years, however, she has definitely returned to her former glory and our hearts. It’s like she never left at all! Currently she stars alongside Mike Epps as “Cindy Russell,” on ABC’s Uncle Buck. There, she plays an uptight and overworked wife and mother of three who uproots her family from Atlanta to the ritzy suburbs of Chicago to run her non-profit organization. When she needs someone to watch her children while she and her husband works she reluctantly turns to her brother-in-law, turned “manny” (man + nanny). Naturally, the show is filled with laughs and is reminiscent of ABC’s other hit series black-ish.
We are just glad to see Nia back on television! Watching her is pure poetry! Those eyes and those curves will make the mightiest man weak. Lord deliver us from evil and straight to Nia’s arms
