Selita Ebanks, Wesley Jonathan and the “Nicki” cast braved the super cold temps this week on the Queens, NY set of the new ABC Family (now Freefrom) sitcom based on Nicki Minaj’s life.

Get a peek at what to expect inside…

The model turned actress has herself a new gig. After starring on BET’s “Real Husbands of Hollywood,” Nick Cannon’s ex fiancee Selita Ebanks is front and center on the new show “Nicki” that is loosely based on rapper Nicki Minaj’s childhood.

The Caymanian model-actress plays young Nicki’s mom and she was spotted on the set in Queens with Nicki’s on screen dad played by Wesley Jonathan and the babies playing Nicki’s fam:

Gotta love that late 80’s early 90’s tease these outfits and hair are giving:

Ha!

Recently, little Ariana Neal –who plays young Nicki — was also spotted on the freezing set on one of her first days of filming.

Nicki Minaj has been posting like crazy about how excited she is to see the story come to life and that some casting surprises are still on deck.

This should be interesting…
