Tiffany Haddish, more than maybe any other celebrity we have right now, is keeping things relatable. Aside from delivering a hilarious commentary on #OscarsSoWhite with Rudolph, Haddish also made headlines at the Oscars for curtseying before Meryl Streep, as one does, and asking the legendary actress to play her mother in the sequel to Girls Trip.
"My father is from Eritrea and he passed away previous year", Haddish told ABC.
In a video captured by Variety's Elizabeth Wagmeister, Haddish can be heard yelling, "you're gonna be my momma!"
Girls Trip star Tiffany Haddish has already proven she likes a good deal-her Groupon loyalty even earned her a gig as the discount e-commerce site's spokesperson. "When we came out together we know what some of you were thinking" smirked Haddish, "are the Oscars too black now?!" she went on to reassure the audience that she'd seen, "a lot of white people with clip boards" backstage.
During the opening monologue the night she hosted SNL (in the gown) she explained that it was $4,000 and it "cost way more than my mortgage".
"This is a $4,000 dress!"
In addition to wearing slippers "in front of a whole room full of white folks", on stage, Haddish said that another highlight from presenting at the Oscars show was wearing her now iconic Alexander McQueen gown.
"My heart has been smiling since she walked onto the Oscars red carpet, I literally started crying", Fetaw said.
And if Tiffany Haddish has her way, it might become a reality!
Later, she changed into a white Alexander McQueen dress, notable for the fact she's worn it to big events on more than one occasion.
HADDISH: Well, I got blisters bubbling up on the bottom of my foot. "And I said, 'I don't give a dang about no taboo'". Feeling cute because he made [it] for me. She says today reminded her family that representation truly matters.
