Nikki Glaser may be selling out comedy shows and hosting stand-up specials on Netflix, but when it comes to spending time with her family in her hometown, she's just like the rest of us.
Whether she's picking up dog poop without a bag, hanging up photos of Taylor Swift in her bedroom, or having the 'what are we?' talk with her ex, Nikki is showing that life as a top comedian isn't always as glamorous as it seems on her new E! series, Welcome Home Nikki Glaser?.
The show follows Nikki after she decides to move back to her home city of St. Louis, Mo. amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
In addition to spending time with her parents, EJ and Julie Glaser, and with her best friend, Kerstin Robinson, on the show, Nikki is also exploring her undeniable connection to her ex-boyfriend, Chris Convy. During the May 1 premiere, the 37-year-old shared that she's been involved in an on-and-off romance with Chris for eight years.
Who is Nikki Glaser's ex-boyfriend, and is she dating him now? Keep reading to find out.
Nikki Glaser is reconnecting with her ex-boyfriend, Chris Convy, on her E! series.
The stand-up comedian has been involved in an on-and-off relationship with writer and producer, Chris Convy, for the better part of a decade. The two first met when Nikki co-hosted the MTV late night talk series, Nikki & Sara Live, in 2013. Chris worked on the series as a producer.
The pair continued to work together while they pursued a romantic relationship. After Nikki & Sara Live came to an end after two seasons, Chris produced Nikki's 2016 Comedy Central series, Not Safe with Nikki Glaser. The show was canceled after one season, and Nikki and Chris broke up shortly thereafter.
"I always said when we got the show that it was going to be cancelled one day. Everyone used to say, 'You're so negative,' but I'm not pretending that I just made it. It might be pessimistic or not a great way to look at things always, but I was prepared to lose it at some point, just like I was prepared to lose my boyfriend," Nikki shared in an interview with Buffalo News in November of 2016. Most relationships don't last, and most TV shows don't last. It softens the brunt when those things blow up."
Nikki's personal relationship with Chris didn't work out the first time, but they were back on by the time cameras started rolling for Welcome Home Nikki Glaser?.
Like Nikki, Chris decided to move back to St. Louis (which is also his hometown) during the pandemic.
On the second episode of the E! series, which aired on May 2, Nikki and Chris acknowledged that they were more than friends, but that they were not dating exclusively. Nikki shared that she was going to keep using her dating apps, and that she wanted Chris to do the same.
Nikki later noted that she broke Chris's trust during their relationship, and that she pretended to be someone she thought he would love during the early part of their romance. They agreed that they needed to build back trust before they could be boyfriend and girlfriend again.
Are Nikki Glaser and Chris Convy still together?
Though it seemed like the two were headed toward a full reconciliation, Nikki has yet to confirm whether Chris is her boyfriend now. Their will-they-won't-they relationship will be a focus on the E! series, so viewers will have to tune in to find out if Chris and Nikki are still an item today.
New episodes of Welcome Home Nikki Glaser? air on Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on E!
