What happened to Max Nichols' wife?
Rachel Michele Nichols (47 or 48 years old) is an American sports broadcaster and anchor. Her career began in the 1990s, and she joined ESPN in 2004. Rachel was a longtime host of ESPN's The Jump show.
The weekdays' segment analyzed the NBA leagues and featured a panel of NBA analysts and players. Unfortunately, ESPN removed her from the show even though she had one more year on her contract.
A controversial recorded phone call between her and Adam Mendelsohn (LeBron James' advisor) was leaked in July 2021. Rachel implied that ESPN chose Maria Taylor, a Black colleague, to host the NBA Finals because of her race.
As a result, some of her colleagues considered a boycott and called her a bad teammate. Hence, ESPN replaced Rachel with Malika Andrews as its 2021 NBA Finals' sideline reporter. The network then cancelled the show on 25th August. Rachel thanked her show's team for an epic five-year run via social media.

In 1981, he featured in Miloš Forman's movie Ragtime. He became a film director in the early 2000s, but his movies didn't make it to the Box office. Therefore, Mikhail's son turned to music video directing and released I'm N Luv Wit a Stripper music video for T-Pain ft. Mike Jones in 2006.
He later produced Two Night Stand Indie romantic comedy in 2014 and an episode in the ongoing Day 5 series in 2016. The series received a Streamy Award for best Sci-Fi series in the same year. Also, two new Max Nichols' movies, Chemistry Lessons and Hefty, will soon be out.
