Brooklyn’s own, Tiffany Pollard, better known as New York, is being honored for her television presence with an art exhibit. Although she was first introduced to the world onback in 2006 Flavor of Love season 1, and then followed up with her own spin-off I Love New York, the exhibit is dedicated to her time on Celebrity Big Brother UK, which aired in 2016.
The HBIC gets to see her dedication titled, “David’s Dead: A Celebration of Tiffany Pollard” at the Brooklyn museum, Thnk 1994 and will be on display beginning May 18th.
In case you are wondering who is David and how did he die, let us give you the run down: While Tiffany was living in the Big Brother home, she built a relationship with fellow housemate, David Gest, who fell ill while taping. When David Bowie’s ex-wife, Angela Bowie, gets the news that her former mate is dead she shared the news with the former “Scared Famous” star by saying, “David’s Dead.” Not realizing that she was speaking about her late husband, Tiffany immediately thought it was her roommate, David, and all hell broke loose.
This infamous scene became one of Tiffany’s most talked about moments in her time as a reality star, and now it will be remembered in art form.
Of course, the “Inner Cry Queen” is totally ecstatic about her dedication, taking to Instagram to share her excitement: “Truly beyond flattered and humbled. Can’t wait to see this in #brooklyn,” she wrote on IG. “LOVE and THANKS to all those involved #hbic👑”
Congrats, New York! Keep giving us good TV.
