Nicole Byer, Host of Netflix’s Nailed It!, Describes Her Journey to Finally Getting an ADHD Diagnosis


Nicole Byer (host of Netflix’s Nailed it! and Wipeout on TBS) sits down with Taraji P. Henson and cohost Tracie Jade in an upcoming episode of Facebook Watch’s Peace of Mind With Taraji to talk about her journey from being labeled a “busybody” as a child to her diagnosis with adult ADHD. In the exclusive clip above, Byer expands on her childhood signs and symptoms — such as having trouble focusing, rushing through her schoolwork, and being talkative — and how that led her parents to guide her toward acting. “My mother was like, ‘Go talk on stage,'” Byer explains.

Toward the end of the minute-long clip, in which Byer also discusses the impact ADHD has had on her career, Jade asks, “Do you think that being a Black woman with ADHD, you think that we have a different journey in terms of how we navigate?” Byer responds, “I think Black women have a harder journey with everything.” A representative from Facebook confirmed that psychiatrist Eraka Bath, MD, will also appear in the episode and share information about how ADHD is often not properly identified in the Black community.

Watch the clip above, and be sure to catch its Monday, Nov. 22, premiere on Facebook Watch.
