      Yeah, you definitely right about that! She reminds me so much of the saying, "Laughing to keep from crying." I remember when she was telling her story on the Breakfast Club and she started crying but would try to chuckle at the same time to fight a complete emotional breakdown. She had me crying at work while I was listening to her! 😔

    I’ve heard people say “Tiffany Haddish is a walking black stereotype “and first of all nobody should call anybody anything if they don’t know their story because they’re not at liberty to speak. She made something of her self in an impossible situation time after time.Mad love and respect for Tiffany❤️😤

All any woman needs is to be loved but most have become unloveable. It does not help that they cannot get any real satisfaction from their men. It is not going to get any better

After high school I joint the Marines and it helped turn my life around for at lease a few years. Until I lost 5 of my best buddies fighting for operation "FREEDOM" in Iraq and Afghanistan. Thats when things turn for the worst again. But keep your head up and stay happy and smile...👍👍👍

    She deserves what she's endured so much to accomplish. I've always loved how Kevin speaks so highly of her. They have both talked about their, long time, friendship & how he helped when she was sleeping in her car. Kevin put Katt Williams in his place on a radio interview. He truly loves Tiffany! I love both of them for that, amongst many other reasons. That ex husband is likely bitter, and didn't want her to succeed. Yet, wants some of that success money. I don't believe anything he says. She's been looking for love for yrs and has never been silent about wanting genuine love & some who genuinely appreciates the love she has to give. He sounds insecure just as she's spoken publicly about many times. However, she seem to have found all of the missing pieces in Common & I believe as long as she's happy they will be together forever. Stop being a sour puss bc u messed up & missed out Mr Ex. Commend her, stop trying to taint her reputation, bc clearly it's not working. Wish his the best, mean it & move the hell on. Learn and maybe things will get better for u sir. Anyway, I love u Tiffany Haddish as do A LOT of us & we'll continue to support u. Ur a fighter, a survivor, a true go getter. U didn't let ur adversities hinder u! Go Tiff!!! To hell with the judgemental ppl that listen to what he's saying, bc they were looking for anything to be able to claim they don't like u. It wouldn't have mattered what it was bc they were never true supporters in the 1st places. Ur more than a triple threat. They hate on that anyway 💜🥰

    Hey Tiffany I want to say I'm sagittarius too I'm on the 10th. But mind frame we think so much alike. I have grown you with negative people in my corner seen I moved down to north Carolina. But I'm from N.Y Queens were nothing but good positive energy. I was always look at as weird, different,I'm not going to be nothing in life just negative effects in nc moved down(1991) But the one think I always had in my corner to escape reality was my imagination being real I'm trying to find who I am. I have been carrying around some guilt for a couple of years about who I am in the past and who I was and whatever I can do different and you just showed me that you can't do nothing but forgive others to show forgiveness for yourself for others
