Today, Nischelle is unmarried at the age of 49, which is quite a shock but not entirely unnatural.

For all we know, the four-time Emmy Award-winning reporter is waiting for a suitable match for whom she’ll walk down the aisle.

Nischelle Turner and Shaq’s Affair

People may have speculated that Nischelle Turner and Shaquille O’Neal were dating because they were spotted together at the Super Bowl event. However, these rumors were not true, and they are just good friends.

Did Nischelle and Shaq Really Date Each Other?

They have a friendship and co-host a podcast together called “The Big Podcast.”

Does Nischelle Has a Son?

Nischelle is a mother. A Godmother.

Her friends, Kita Williams and her husband E Joe Hardy asked Nischelle to become godmother to their son, Greysun.

Nischelle initially thought that being godmother without having a child of her own was not a wise decision. On top off that, she has a very demanding career.

However, over the years, Nischelle realized that being a godmother has done her more good than to the kid.

She realized what it is like to be unconditionally love and be loved that way.

Nischelle Turner’s Search For Boyfriend

Surely you did not think that this extremely beautiful woman has never had any relationships.

Even famous celebrities have confessed their minds about wanting to go out with Turner, but we’ll talk on this matter later.

In 2015, Steve Harvey, one of Turner’s long-time friends, brought two black males on his show, staging a dating game for Nischelle.

Similar to a bachelorette but with only two guys competing.

One of the contestants was NGL player Israel Idonije, and the other was a Harvard Business School graduate named Jim.

While Turner knew who Israel was from the very first, having cheered in excitement when he came on the stage, it was Jim who flattered her.


Jim’s idea of a perfect date was a trip to the Bahamas for a little spa treatment getaway. That really impressed Turner.

But did Turner end up dating any of the men? No.

Nischelle Turner Break Up with Boyfriend

In a 2018 chat with Steve Harvey, alongside her colleague Kevin Frazier, Turner revealed a roadblock in her personal life.

Turner is not one of those who comes off as an open book when it comes to her personal life.

The University of Missouri graduate revealed that she had been seeing a guy for about six months.

Unfortunately, their relationship came to an end. Well, not exactly an end but more like something that indicates an eventual dead-end.

If you’ve watched Friends, the famous NBC Sitcom, you’re also familiar with the often-shouted term “We Were On A BREAK!”

That’s what happened with Turner and her partner.

She said that she and her boyfriend of six months were on a break and how her beau was the one who suggested it.

Although, Steve Harvey was not entirely convinced on this matter, he chose to believe Turner.

S*x-Couch Phobia

In a talk session with Steve Harvey, Turner revealed her phobia of sitting on a couch that’s inside of her co-host Kevin Frazier’s office.

“That couch is the first piece of furniture Kevin bought when he came to California. Right around the time, Kevin got divorced from his first wife.”

When Kevin got married again in 2006, to Yazmin Cader Frazier, she forbid him from bringing the couch to their new home.

Naturally, Kevin bought his first furniture after moving to California, one he loves so much, to his office.

The reason why Nischelle sits on the floor rather than sit on the couch is because of one simple yet extremely funny reason.

 She calls it “The S*x-Couch.”

The first piece of furniture that he [Kevin] bought when he got divorced, you know what was going on-on that couch. And I refuse to touch it with a 10-foot pole.”

When Steve calmly suggested if Kevin was just sleeping on the couch, Turner asked him would he [Steve] would come to Kevin’s office and sit on the couch.

Steve retaliated, saying,

“Would you not go out with Common?”

Speaking of Common.

As it happens, Turner and Common have had flirty sessions with each other. Moreover, Turner even asked him out for coffee.

Steve Harvey also mentioned how Common showed interest in taking Nischelle out [on a date.]

Even though there was a green light on both streets, their flirty exchanges did not materialize into a relationship.

Turner said how by the time she was thinking about anything serious, Common had already begun dating someone else.

Common began dating political analyst beauty Angela Rye. As the couple split in 2019, Common is currently in a relationship with Tiffany Haddish.

Facing Racism

Turner, as she calls herself, a woman of color, has faced her fair share of events filled with racism.

On August 6, 2019, Turner faced an event that shook her to the core. While driving on her way, after an amazing interview with Oprah Winfrey and Michael B. Jordan, a couple of white men verbally assaulted her.

The car crossed and cut off Turner out of nowhere, which prompted her to stomp the breaks.

When Turner grew level with the car at stoplights, the men in the car started showing her [middle] finger and began screaming the N-word.

Things went to the point that the passenger and driver both leaned over and spat on Turner’s car first and then on her face.

Nischelle later pursued her assailants with hopes to catch their number plates and report them to authorities, which she did.

Unfortunately, Turner has very little hopes in receiving justice for that event since the COVID-19 pandemic has shut down the whole world.

“I’m just a little black girl from Columbia, Missouri. I’m pinching myself because I’m sitting here in Hollywood, kind of wide-eyed taking it all in.”

– Nischelle Turner

Apart from this singularly moving encounter of racism, there are other times during which Turner was made feel that she was out of place.

Nischelle Faced Racism at Work

A network that she worked for before, specifically the network manager, once told her that she should be grateful for what she had, implying her black ethnicity.

When the time came to renew her contract, she left the network for the better.

Turner also faced racism at Entertainment Tonight, but not in greater magnitudes like the one in her previous job.

The fact that people called out on her for needing special attention when all she asked was a hairstylist who could work with her type of hair made her feel discriminated.

The existing hairstylist at the show did not know how to work on ethnic hair. Later, different management that took over resolved this particular issue immediately.

  1. Could donald j. Trum. Sr., please perhaps make some sexy love to nichelle turner, kristine leahy, tara reid, and paula abdul?

  2. Niscelle is one of the most beautiful people I have ever seen on tv. I love ET mainly because of her. She is fantastic and a wonderful human being. I would love to meet her in person and tell her to her face that I adore her.

  3. I don’t watch the show often but when I do, I am totally amazed how unconditional and natural they are around one another. It is like they are like brother and sister and have this great chemistry with each other . Nischelle is very beauty and looks like she would be a lot of fun on girls day out.
