I think ‘Fuck that bitch.’ That was 2000, maybe 2001, so it’s not new. She been racist, why’d you all give her a TV show?” she said about her encounter with Roseanne.

Tiffany also admitted that Sanaa Lathan’s family was upset after she told about an encounter between Sanaa and Beyonce. “They were like, ‘Why would you do this to the family? You know, black actresses, you guys have to stick together, it’s so hard for you guys to get work as it is, why would you try to ruin her career?’ But I didn’t try to ruin her career. I never said her name! I was just trying to say how Beyoncé kept me from goin’ to jail that night. I coulda just shut my whole career down.” she said.

Amongst other things, Tiffany talked about how she wasn’t trippin that Tracy Morgan brushed her off in an interview. “I’m not mad about it, I love me some Tracy.” she said about the incident. She also talked about flirting with Leonardo Di Caprio. “Yeah, I met him at a party two, three months ago, and I asked him if he’d let me hit that.” To read Tiffany’s full interview click here.
