Tiffany Haddish Details Brief Feud With Tracy Morgan

Their unique chemistry lead to the two butting heads about the direction of her character on the hit series. 

Tiffany Haddish isn't bothered by what appeared to be shade by fellow comedian and The Last O.G. co-star Tracy Morgan recently.

In her cover story with The Hollywood Reporter Wednesday (June 13), the triple threat opened up about her adored career and the many lessons she's learned along the way. One was knowing her artistic worth, which caused a bit of tiff on the set of the TBS comedy The Last O.G. 

Booked before the release of Girls Trip, Haddish plays the role of Shay, Tray's (Morgan) former girlfriend whose life has evolved during Tray's time in prison.

As he hilariously navigates through a gentrified Brooklyn 15 years later, he also tries to win over his former flame. As her brand grew, expectations for her to bust out "She Ready-isms" as Shay came with it, which she refused to do. She also shared how her relationship with Morgan changed as well.

While doing promo for the Vulture Festival in May, Morgan took part in an interview where he brushed off a question about his co-star. "We're not gonna go there," he said. "Because this isn't Tiffany's show. This is Tracy Morgan. This is The Last O.G. If you're going to go there, ask that about Tiffany, ask that about Cedric [The Entertainer], ask that about Kraft services, everyone that comes to work on that show. I don't like that."

The series was thought of years ago by Morgan and with the help of Jordan Peele, became a reality as the first season wrapped earlier this month.

As comedians like Lil Rey Howery came to Haddish's defense on social media, the comedian shared how it didn't bother her.

"You guys, chill. He's probably just tired of hearing my name," she said. "It's exhausting. I'm tired of hearing my name. I could see how that could be irritating, like, 'Hello, I died, people. I'm back from the dead. Tiffany's cool, but it's me sitting here now.' So, I get it, I'm not mad about it, I love me some Tracy."

During a sit down with the Associated Press in April, Morgan and Haddish were candid about their unique chemistry. "I already knew that she was a tough cookie before I got to the set," he said. "That's what made me pick her [for the role]."

Haddish hinted towards their artistic differences, but explained how her ideas were always respected. "You're able to give more input on how you feel about about the character, what you think this should be, or that should be and your point of view of respected," she said. "It may not be what we do, but it's respected."

Haddish and Morgan will reunite with the rest of the cast this summer to film season two of the comedy.

'Sesame Street' Praised For The Inclusion Of Homeless Character

Sesame Street continues its crusade to include statement-making characters on their block. This time around, families will be introduced to Lily, the show’s first homeless character.

According to USA Today, Lily- an adorable hot pink, red haired puppet- was first introduced to the show in 2011, but in new online clips, Lily opens up about being homeless and staying with friends.

"Now we don't have our own place to live, and sometimes I wonder if we'll ever have our own home," she says to Elmo in one clip. In her initial appearances on the show, Lily discusses her family’s food insecurities, meaning they didn’t have much to eat.

“We know children experiencing homelessness are often caught up in a devastating cycle of trauma – the lack of affordable housing, poverty, domestic violence, or other trauma that caused them to lose their home, the trauma of actually losing their home, and the daily trauma of the uncertainty and insecurity of being homeless,” said Sherrie Westin, President of Global Impact and Philanthropy at Sesame Workshop.

“We want to help disrupt that cycle by comforting children, empowering them, and giving them hope for the future," she continues. "We want them to know that they are not alone and home is more than a house or an apartment – home is wherever the love lives.”

In recent years, Sesame Street has introduced a slew of ground-breaking new characters, including Julia, a puppet with autism, and Alex, a character whose father is incarcerated.

As previously reported Will Smith and Martin Lawrence announced that the third installment of the Bad Boys franchise is finally happening after years of negotiating. The upcoming film, entitled, Bad Boys For Life, is expected to premiere in Jan. 2020.
