What happened to Nikki Cox from Unhappily Ever After?
Nikki Cox is an actress best known for playing Tiffany, Tiffany’s daughter, on the hit TV show Unhappily Ever After.
She was born in Santa Monica, California, on June 2, 1978. At the age of 4, she made her acting debut in TV specials and ballet shows. When she was first cast on television at the age of 10, her actual career took off.
Nikki’s first acting role was as Little Iola Boyland in a fourth-season episode of Mama’s Family, which aired from 1983 to 1990.
The same year, Nikki returned to her ballet slippers for the Badder scene in the 1988 movie Moonwalker, starring popular singer Michael Jackson.
Star Trek: The Next Generation
In Star Trek: The Next Generation, Nikki played Sarjenka, a young Dreman. To keep her planet, Sarjenka famously forces her to kill Lt. become Commander Data.
Data persuades Captain Picard to allow the Enterprise to help Sarjenka and her people, but Picard is determined to erase Commander Data and Sarjenka’s memories of the incident.
Sarjenka only appears in one episode of TNG, but like many of the plots of the legendary sci-fi classic, fans are immediately familiar with her story.
Unfortunately ever after
Nikki played Tiffany Malloy, the middle child and only daughter of troubled couple Jack and Jennie, in her first prime time appearance. She portrays an intelligent, ambitious and gold-digging overachiever.
Each episode featured Nikki. Over the course of five seasons, the show had 100 episodes. The program ended when it was sold for syndication but not picked up due to poor viewership.
The Norm Show
After Unhappily Ever After was canceled, Nikki was chosen to play Taylor Clayton, a former call girl turned social worker, on The Norm Show. She appeared in 27 episodes.
The WB handed Nikki Cox a comedy with her name in response to her success on Unhappily Ever After. The story of Nikki White, the showgirl who works in “the baddest casino in Las Vegas,” and her wrestler husband were central to the film.
Over the course of two seasons and 41 episodes, the last six were not shown. Due to poor ratings, the network canceled the program after the first 19 episodes of Season 2.
Nikki plays Mary Connell in the comedy-drama Las Vegas, who continues to have an on-again, off-again relationship with one of the stars, Ed Deline (James Caan). The couple gets engaged in Season 2, but they break it off.
Over the show’s first four seasons, Nikki appeared in 88 episodes. For the sixth season, she chose not to return. The insinuation that she killed her father and is evading the law explains her absence.
A tail of a Christmas wedding
Nikki’s last acting role was as Cheri, a poodle who meets and falls in love with Rusty, a yellow Lab, in the 2011 television movie A Christmas Wedding Tale.
What is Nikki Cox doing now?
Since Nikki’s acting career lasted from 1982 to 2011, there is no doubt that she left the industry. Since her son was born in 2011, it makes sense.
A famous plastic surgeon has speculated that Nikki’s botox procedure was another factor in her decision to leave the performing industry.
However, Nikki herself has remained silent on the subject and has led a private life since leaving the performing industry.
Nikki’s first known relationship was with Kevin Connolly, who played her older brother Ryan on the television series Unhappily Ever After.
Then, in 1997, she got engaged to Robert “Bobcat” Goldthwait, another Unhappily Ever After co-star. Her unstable father’s schizophrenic puppet, Mr. Floppy, was voiced by actor and comedian Bobcat.
Bobcat was 16 years older than Nikki. They remained together until their breakup in 2005.
In December 2006, Nikki tied the knot in Los Angeles with her Las Vegas co-star, Jay Mohr. Meredith Daniel, the couple’s only child, was born on May 5, 2011. In 2018, they got divorced.
While the divorce was reportedly caused by “irreconcilable issues,” there are many reports that Nikki had a long-term drug problem with suicidal thoughts.
In addition, Mohr is asking the court for sole custody of their son, claiming that “our boy is suffering” because of the “very complex and uncomfortable living environment”.
He continues by saying Nikki doesn’t care about her “mental health issues, her drug abuse and her refusal to respect boundaries.”
Since then, Jay has been married to Jeanie Buss, the controlling owner and president of the LA Lakers.
Nikki hasn’t had much recent news, but it’s never too late for her to get back into the spotlight.
