Tiffany Haddish Gives Stephen Colbert Beard Advice, Explains Why She Doesn't Need A Man

“My personal relationships haven’t been that good, but I have been keeping up with my weighted blanket and my toys that I get off Groupon and batteries—batteries are a girl’s best friend.”

Tiffany Haddish has settled for a weighted blanket instead of dating men. The comedian recently paid a visit to The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, where she revealed to Colbert that she isn’t dating anyone at the moment, but in the meantime she’s found a great place holder to replace a man.

“I haven’t been dating,” she told Colbert. “My personal relationships haven’t been that good, but I have been keeping up with my weighted blanket and my toys that I get off Groupon and batteries—batteries are a girl’s best friend.”

Then she went onto explain how she uses the blanket, and how in some instances it’s better than being with a real man. “A weighted blanket is filled with sand…it’s like 25 pounds and you can throw that over your legs and you spray a little cologne over it and throw it over your arms and it feels like a man is holding you,” she explained. “Then you go to sleep and you don’t have to make him breakfast or talk to the weighted blanket or nothing.”

But besides discussing her dating life, Haddish also gave Colbert some advice on how to take care of and accessorize his beard.  "I like this beard you got going on," Haddish told Colbert. "We need to put you on Facebook on this thing called Beard Gang. Beard Gang, yeah. It's a bunch of sexy men in beards and sweatpants. See, sweatpants are men lingerie, basically."

"You should condition it," she continued after she touched his beard. "Put some coconut oil in it before you go to bed at night. It'll soften it up… it’s beard etiquette.”

In addition to beards and dating, the two discussed Tiffany’s upcoming film with Kevin Heart, Night School, which debuts next Friday (Sept. 28). Watch the full interview below.

It's no secret Wendy Williams has been dealing with multiple obstacles in her personal life, but that hasn't stopped her from sharing her truth. During the latest episode of The Wendy Williams Show, which aired on Tuesday (Mar. 19), the TV personality revealed that she has been staying at a sober house in New York due to her addiction to cocaine.

"I have been living in a sober house. … You know I’ve had a struggle with cocaine in the past," she shared with her audience. "I never went to a place to get treatment … there are people in your family, it might be you … I want you to know more of the story."

Prior to the big reveal, Williams said that her husband Kevin Hunter was the only person who knew she was seeking treatment. "Only Kevin knows about this. Not my parents, nobody. Nobody knew because I look so glamorous out here," she explained. "I am driven by my 24-hour sober coach back to a home that I live in the tri-state with a bunch of smelly boys who have become my family."

Williams also noted that the facility has strict hours, locking its doors and cutting off the lights at 10 p.m. sharp. "I go to my room and stare at the ceiling and fall asleep to come here and see you. So that is my truth," she added.
