Tiffany Haddish Reveals She Was Almost A Contestant On This Ratchet Reality Show

Um, Tiffany Haddish could have been in our lives and on our screens way earlier!

She is now a household name, thanks, in part, to her breakout role in the 2017 film Girls Trip.

But she might have found mainstream fame years ago, if she had made a different choice. She told WIRED that she was almost a contestant on the historic VH1 reality TV competition, Flavor of Love.

That is really bizarre. Who knew, eh?

While answering the Web's most searched questions about herself (alongside her Night School costar, Kevin Hart) the comedian answered "no" to one that asked if she was Tiffany "New York" Pollard, who is famous for her stint on the series.

However, she did reveal that, while she auditioned to be a part of it, she quickly changed her mind after learning one key detail.

"But when I found it was Flavor Flav you had to be in the house with, I was like, 'Oh, no thank you. I don't want this job,'" she quipped. 

Hahaha. She should talk to New York about that though. 

Anyway, this was a fun bit, so watch it for yourself.

Funnily enough, Kevin Hart and Katt William recently ended up in a feud over (among other things), Tiffany’s career.

Ticked off over the way Katt discredited the success of fellow comics Lil Rel, Jerrod Carmichael and Tiffany Haddish during a chat on Atlanta radio station V-103, Kevin made it a point to fact-check Katt and prove that Tiffany worked hard to get where she is.

“So when you say Tiffany Haddish doesn’t deserve, or isn’t really a comedian, and these other women have worked hard, which they have,” he declared. “Shoutouts to Melanie Comarcho, shoutouts to Luenell, shoutouts to Leslie Jones, who are all underneath the umbrella of Katt Williams.”

“Katt Williams, have you ever used your platform to [expletive] bring the people that were under you up? You haven’t! You [expletive] you. Nobody else did... Don't [expletive] on my sister's light 'cause you're not happy with your [expletive].”

He then brought up Katt’s history of substance abuse and how it likely contributed to his drop in the industry, explaining, “You had the shot. You were the guy. You were set up to be the star. You didn’t show up to work.”


Katt then kicked feud with Kevin up a few notches as threatened to swap fisticuffs with him.

During an Instagram live session, he accused Kevin of exploiting the tension between the two of them to sell tickets. Williams also cleared up comments about his tour style and insinuated that Hart’s popularity in the U.S. has decreased.

And then he dropped some threats.

“I don’t give a [expletive] how many Crips you pay, [expletive], you’re going to see me in real life [expletive]. Because I know one of these [expletive] on here report directly to you […] I was just in the gym and I’m headed to Floyd Mayweather’s – and I’m going to knock your [expletive] mouth sideways,” Katt ranted on-camera.


In a later video, Katt toned it down a bit as the newly-minted Emmy Award winner recommended that those watching check out Tiffany and Kevin in Night School. But he wrapped it up by reminding Kevin that it is still “on sight” between them.

Do you wish Tiffany had ended up chasing Flav’s heart on-camera?
