Nick's Real Husbands of Hollywood costar Erica Ash suggests there is much more going on with him than people realise.

Nick Cannon is a "beautiful duck," according to his co-star.

The 34-year-old comedian confirmed he had split from his wife Mariah Carey in August, although he has insisted they are still close. Nick appears in spoof reality TV show Real Husbands of Hollywood alongside stars including Erica Ash, who suggests there is much more going on with him than people realise. "He is OK,” she told New York Daily News. “He’s like a beautiful duck. It’s all under the surface of the water. And he is keeping his cool, which I respect and admire. And a lot of people in his situation would fall apart.”

Not all the stars of the show were as accommodating though. While they all wish Nick well, some suggest his heartbreak will be good inspiration for the new series of the programme.

“He is not safe,” Duane Martin said. “We don’t care about that. We are doing comedy. Comedy is tragedy.”

The series is aired on BET, with the channel's chairman and CEO Debra Lee also touching on the subject. While there have been a lot of rumours about Nick and Mariah's relationship - with Nick forced to deny he is romancing Amber Rose, who he is now managing - neither has said the split will be for good. However, Debra seemingly hinted they are parting company for good when she began chatting about divorce.

"Divorce is hard,” she said. “But he keeps saying they have a great relationship, and I hope they will be OK.”

She added that the whole cast, including Kevin Hart, want to draw on the breakup, but she is hopeful they won't cut too close to the bone.

"Everyone knows it is scripted. It is difficult, but I am sure they draw a line at a certain point,” she said.

Writer Chris Spencer joked: "All that sh*t is going to be on the air. We heard about [his] situation ... and we cried. But we cried while we were typing.”
