Nicole, who has African American, Caucasian and Mexican heritage, took 23rd place on the list, and Benji chose to see Nicole’s title as a new way to meet women.

“Now that ur 1of the 100most powerful Black Women on twitter can U get me a date w/ @Ciara or @Nickiminaj i’m over bein single (sic),” Benji wrote.
Joel was also impressed with his fiancée’s achievement. He joked that he had been aware of Nicole’s “power” for a long time as she controls his life.
“My one and only @nicolerichie is named one of the 100 most powerful black women on twitter. My life is like twitter. She runs it (sic),” he wrote.
Joel and Nicole have two children together.
