Niecy Nash and her wife will now have a permanent reminder of a simple miscommunication.
While appearing on "The Tamron Hall Show," the "Reno 911!" star and wife Jessica Betts explained why each of them have "Cora" tattooed their bodies, despite it not being either's name.
The whole thing began when Jessica asked the actress what her birth name was. Niecy said "Carol," but Jessica heard "Cora." Jessica then proceeded to call Niecy "Cora" for almost two years.
"One day, she said, 'Why do you call me Cora?' And I was like, 'That's your name!'" Jessica recalled.
Niecy emphatically corrected her wife.
"I thought it was something that the cool kids called each other in New York on the street," Niecy said. "I said, 'My name is not Cora' and [Jessica] said, 'It is now.'"
The misheard name is now incredibly meaningful to the duo, as they both got it inked. Jessica's "Cora" ink appears on her neck, whereas Niecy has a tattoo that reads "Mrs. Cora Betts" on her hip.
"It's up and stuck…. JB, I'm Always & Forever your 'Cora' @jessicabettsmusic #IYKYK," Niecy captioned a video of the ink.
Jessica replied, "My Cora.. period."
