Have you ever wondered what a dinner party at Barbra Streisand or Taylor Swift's house would look like? You’re in luck.
Tiffany Haddish popped up on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Monday to celebrate her birthday and talk with DeGeneres about her latest projects. In the process, the Girls Trip star also decided to pull back the curtain on star-studded potlucks.
- Haddish recently nabbed two of the hottest dinner invites in Tinseltown, dining with both Barbra Streisand and Taylor Swift, she spills.
- She recently hosted Saturday Night Live (the show's first African-American female comic to do so), and Swift was musical guest. They hit it off, and one thing led to another.
- "Taylor was like, 'Tiffany oh my God I like you, we gotta hang out!' I was like, 'Yes! We gotta hang out girl, let's hang out,’" she tells DeGeneres before revealing she had a few demands for their potluck party. "I said, 'Look if I come over you gotta make me some barbecue chicken, some potato salad and a brisket.’"
- Haddish brought over collard greens, freshly picked from her L.A. backyard. "When I pick my greens, I smile," she says. "I smile when I pick the greens and then when I wash the greens I smile, then when I cut them up I smile and then when I cook 'em I smile. They called joyful greens."
- "When I get over there she got all this food-first of all, Taylor can cook, okay? She can cook, like the chicken was bomb and she made cornbread, bomb so good," she says. "And then she ate my greens, she was like, 'Oh my gosh Tiffany I have been wanting greens for so long. I go to all these different places and get greens and they're never good, these greens are so delicious and I was like, 'Girl, cause them is joyful greens!"
- She also recently dined with Streisand Haddish says that she and Streisand bonded over Cardi B and their similar upbringings.
- "I told her I was from South Central Los Angeles and she told me she's from Brooklyn," she says. "And then we found out we both from the hood, we both ghetto chicks except it's just different times."
- This has been quite a year for Haddish, who not only earned critical and popular adulation for her breakout role in Girls Trip, but also published a book The Last Black Unicorn, which details her tough childhood growing up with a mother suffering from schizophrenia and her journey through foster care.
- While most of Haddish’s birthday wishes came true, she says she'd still like to rent a Tesla, nab some diamonds, oh, and launch a garden business with Oprah Winfrey.
