Girls Trip actress Tiffany Haddish was a guest on Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk show where she revealed a lot about herself and more.
The comedian spoke about growing up in foster care after an accident left her mum with brain damage. She told Jada that she just got her mum out of the mental institution and into her own place.
“The other day, she was at my house,” Tiffany told Jada. “That was the first time she said she’s proud. It took everything in my heart not to just break down and cry.”
At this point, Tiffany was tearing up as she added: “I went to the backroom, turned on the shower, jumped in that mother f***** and … [sobs]”.
On a lighter note, Tiffany was asked about the best part of her success and she replied: “When Beyonce said my name in a song. I made it! This is it!”.
She then talked about Beyonce stopping her from attacking the person who bit her at a party last December.
“She protected me. I could have for sure went to jail. I wanted her to know that I consider her a hero. I was going into my hood mentality.”
Tiffany also revealed that Drake once stood her up. She said he asked her to dinner before she appeared in his music video but he didn’t show up.
She recalled: “I was like shoot. I’m gonna get my mustache waxed, get my armpits waxed.”
She explained her bailed on the date due to family problems.
Tiffany also told her Girls Trip co-star Jada that she has a “Dick pic book” and she considers herself a Penialtologist.
She said: “When I was younger, anytime I would go on a date, I would ask a guy if I could see his penis. And then I would pull out my disposable camera and ask, ‘can I take a picture of your penis?’ ”
She added: “They’d be holding it in their hands and from their hands you can see, dirty nails, dirty dick… It’s never about the feet. Check them hands. His hands always dry and ashy, his dick probably ashy too.”
She also talked about sexual harassment in the comedy world, which she says is rampant, and how she’s handled it, while pointing out that “comedians are perverts”.
She said: “I always handled it well though. I always turned it around on them. What a man can’t handle is an aggressive woman. First, they’d be pushing up on me like, ‘If you want 5 minutes of stage time then you gonna have to give me 5 minutes. What you gonna do for it?’ And I’m like, ‘I’m not giving up my body for no damn stage time.’ ”
