Nikki Cox, "Vegas" and "Unhappily" Girl

Nikki Cox legends.filminspector.com


Nikki Cox starred as Tiffany Malloy in "Unhappily Ever After," which was kind of a take-off on "Married With Children." While never quite as popular as the former, it gained a wide audience, defying expectations. That was largely due to Nikki, though there were several other outstanding performers (not to slight the others, but Geoff Pierson is a very under-rated actor) and behind-the-scenes people, too. Audiences watched Nikki develop from a teenager to a voluptuous woman.

Nikki, as I will show below, has one of the best resumes in the business for a television actor, and her occasional film appearances have been memorable. "Unhappily Ever After" made her a star with her knowing, self-conscious flaunting of her fabulous figure, but also has a comic flair that is unappreciated.

Nikki also starred in "Las Vegas" from 2003-2007. Having two successful series is a rarity in Hollywood.

Nikki also starred on "Norm," which wasn't quite as successful, but it was on the air for two seasons, and that ain't beanbag.

Few remember that Nikki appeared in "Terminator 2: Judgment Day. She wasn't a named character. She tells Arnold to go to the Galleria.

Nikki got her start on "Mama's Family" in 1988. She has been in the business for a long time despite her young age.

Nikki also has a Star Trek credit, as Sarjenka on the 1989 "Pen Pals" Generations episode.

Truly discriminating filmgoers will know that perhaps Nikki's best performance ever - ever! - was in "Run Ronnie Run" in 2002. She had some spectacular scenes as Kayla, the beer poster girl. I have a bunch of stills from it below. It has become an underground cult hit - people don't know about Nikki in "Run Ronnie Run" unless someone tells you about it. Well, you're welcome.

Nikki also is one of the few actors to have a series named after her - "Nikki," which ran from 2000-2002.

"All that some actresses want is for people to take them seriously instead of caring about how they look. For me, I've worked hard for people to think I'm funny."

"Unhappily Ever After" produced two relationships for Nikki. She dated her "brother" Kevin Connolly, and also comedian Bobcat Goldthwaite, who appeared once or twice, but also voiced "Mr. Floppy" in every episode.

Nikki also has the original "Baywatch" on her credits, and that is 100% appropriate for her. She played Charlene aka "Charlie."

Nikki Cox is hilarious in person. Here is her rambling response to a question about what it was like on the "Vegas" set:
It was totally the "Love Boat" like, hey, guess who's here? It was crazy because every week there was some ridiculous and amazing guest but we literally had so much fun. Elvis impersonators, Charo, Donnie Osmond, and Gladys Knight? One of the weirdest days of my life was when Jay was hosting at night and I didn't get much sleep but when I got to work, Donnie Osmond and Charo are there. So I'm sleep deprived and I'm like, is this happening? Is this my life right now?


There are a lot of rumors swirling about regarding Nikki's current appearance because she doesn't make many public appearances any more. Below are two pictures of Nikki Cox from 2014/2015. I think you'll agree that she looks fabulous.

Nikki's husband took these. He gave her credit in 2015 for writing his Grammy-nominated comedy album, proving once again what a talented wife he has.

The rest of the pictures are from "Run Ronnie Run." I hope they explain why that was her best role.
