Niecy Nash Admits It's Hard to Play "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire"

ROBYN BECK/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Actress Niecy Nash is one of the many celebrities featured this week on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire's "Celebrity Week," which has some of your favorite stars competing for a chance at $1 million for their favorite charities. The Getting On star told ABC News Radio her experience on the game show was extremely nerve-racking.

"It's very different from when you play at home in your living room. I was nervous," Nash said after taping her appearance on the game show. "But see, when you get it wrong in your living room, hey, you have nothing to lose, but out there you've got everything to lose."

The 43-year-old actress was playing the trivia game show to raise money for the Amazing Grace Conservatory, a performing arts school in Los Angeles for inner-city children led by actress Wendy Raquel Robinson.

Nash felt a little at ease thanks to host Cedric the Entertainer, her former onscreen husband from TV Land's The Soul Man.

"Cedric...has such a warm spirit and he always makes you feel comfortable," Nash explained. "It's the lights and the dramatic music that make you feel uncomfortable."

Cedric thought Nash played the game well. "You know, it's one of those things that when you get out there, like most people, they have a real issue. They play the game at home and they think it's so easy, and then when you get there under the pressure and under the lights, it can be a bit daunting. And so I thought she did great and she was having a lot of fun," he said.

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire's "Celebrity Week" airs Nov. 4 to Nov. 8 and also features Real Husbands of Hollywood's Boris Kodjoe, Everybody Loves Raymond's Brad Garrett, and Scandal's Josh Malina.
