Need Inspiration? Tiffany Haddish Reminisces the Night She Was Homeless and Hungry
Not every one of us gets to come home to a cozy bed after a long day’s work, eat three meals a day, or even earn money to buy necessities. This is a known fact and it would probably be too unrealistic to expect that this would eventually come to an end and everyone would never have to suffer.
One of those who had experienced this feeling is Tiffany Haddish, one of the most sought-after comedians and actresses of today, proving that there is always hope even in the direst of times.
The 39-year-old got emotional in an Instagram post showing a throwback photo of her doing a standup, looking back at the hard times she had to endure before enjoying the successes.
Tiffany, who will voice a character in Netflix’s “Tuca & Bertie,” remembered the time she was homeless, hungry, hurt, and scared and that she made it through the phase by believing in herself and God. Understanding how she came so far, she expressed her happiness and gratitude that she is now in a better place.
This was not the first time we have heard Tiffany narrate her difficult past as she also revealed a more detailed version through a memoir, “The Last Black Unicorn,” in 2017. There she narrated how she was kicked out of her house by her grandmother when she was only 18, which was why she became homeless. Carrying her plastic bins, she traveled around and would crash at her friends’ places.
While doing comedy with Kevin Hart through a show called “Comedy Playground,” the “Central Intelligence” actor asked Tiffany where she lived and she showed him all her things in a parked car. After which, he gave her $300. She would park her vehicle in Beverly Hills, touting it as the best area, and stayed there overnight till the police would wake her up in the morning to move her car.
Now that Tiffany is earning more than enough for herself, she tried repaying Kevin, who she co-starred with in the 2018 film “Night School,” raining money on him while on the set. However, he did not accept the cash and sneakily returned it by hiding it on her wig cap.
As far as education is concerned, Tiffany got accepted into the prestigious New York University but because of financial issues, she had to attend somewhere which had more affordable tuition.
So, she enrolled at Santa Monica Community College and worked while studying to pay for her school fees. Because she had to get a job to maintain her schooling, she had to stop doing comedy which she had been doing since high school.
Her childhood days weren’t different, those were very rough, too. Her father left the family when she was still young and her mother, who suffered from schizophrenia, became unable to care for her and her siblings after an accident. Before living with her grandmother, 13 to 18-year-old Tiffany used to be under foster care, where she experienced all sorts of abuses and was treated like a maid.
