Although she has been in the eye of the public for a long time, not many can speak on the state of Niecy Nash's spiritual life and journey. The actress and comedian recently addressed the issue herself during UMC.tv's four-part docuseries "Behind Her Faith."

While on the documentary, the 50-year-old actress talked about how she thought joining the women's group at her local church might help her get "delivered" from some of her difficulties. In a clip exclusively obtained by Page Six, Niecy was heard stating:

"I joined the women's group at church and we were supposed to — the goal was to grow in your faith…these women want to talk about recipes."

The "Claws" actress added that she had gone in search of something more because she had become tired of handling her life the way she did. However, when that didn't work out, she concluded, "I am so over this," and left the group.

Niecy's marital trouble started after she began appearing in sexy scenes and allegedly worked on her body.

Niecy's life has certainly not been an easy one, as BET recalled that when she was just 15, she witnessed her mother, Margaret Ensley, get gunned down by her boyfriend.

Although her mother survived the incident, eight years later, Niecy's 17-year-old younger brother Michael, was shot to death at his high school.

While those tragedies threatened to bring her down, the "Reno 911" star admitted that it was the power of prayer that helped her through the struggles.

Meanwhile, Deadline reported in October that Niecy alongside "Underground's" Aisha Hinds, Essence Atkins and the Shade Room founder, Angelica Nwandu, would be featured in "Behind Her Faith."

The new docuseries for Urban Movie Channel would offer viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the authority of faith and its driving force for successful women in entertainment, politics, business, music, sports, and the ministry.

Fans are already curious to find out if the power of faith kept Niecy going during her season of divorce from her husband of eight years, Jay Tucker.

Daily Mail previously revealed that Niecy's marital trouble started after she began appearing in sexy scenes and allegedly worked on her body.

Cheat Sheet noted that Jay and the "When They See Us" star got engaged in 2010, after dating for a few years. This would be Niecy's second marriage – she divorced her first husband, a pastor, in 2007.
