Not getting support from your family can be tough. This is the problem that Nikki is dealing with on 'The Real L Word' (Sun., 10PM ET on SHO).
In her twenties, Nikki was married to a man -- but then she decided the whole "straight" thing wasn't for her, and came out as a lesbian in front of a national audience on 'The Oprah Winfrey Show.' These days, Nikki is planning on getting married to her fianceÃ© Jill. But her father isn't happy about the situation.
Nikki hasn't heard from her father in four years. The last time she talked him was after she came out on 'Oprah' in 2006. At that point, her dad called her and said this: "I was in my house ... and turned on 'Oprah,' and saw a beautiful woman, and I thought to myself, 'What a waste of a woman,' when I heard the subject matter. And then I realized it was [my daughter]."
During a conversation with her finaceÃ© Jill, Nikki revealed that she hasn't spoken with her dad since then. Only her mother will be present at her wedding. " ... It will be a little bittersweet," Nikki said.
