Giving Pumkin The Blues
Pumkin was a major adversary during Tiffany’s time on the series, and the pair butted heads all throughout the first season.

Eventually, as Pumkin was being eliminated, she straight-up spat at Tiffany, which set her OFF. However, New York tried to get her lick back at the reunion.

Being A Hell-Raiser On Flavor Of Love 2
Tiffany returned for the second season of Flavor of Love (aka Flavor of Love 2), though she entered midway through the series. Immediately upon entering the household, she let the others know that she’s the HBIC and swiftly began calling the shots.
Flavor of Love, Season 2 was so ahead of its time. But it’s something about New York’s first episode back that is so hilarious 😭 https://t.co/jWaFsRYpbx pic.twitter.com/nFAiUh52Ak

Handling All Her Haters At The Reunion
Once season 2 wrapped, New York had plenty of enemies, though she was sure to still show out at the reunion and be “FABULOUSSSS.”
To say that New York was unfazed would be an understatement, and she held strong against a room full of women who absolutely despised her. Now THAT’S how a queen does it!

Ruthlessly Going IN On Gemma During Celebrity Big Brother
During her time on season 17 of Celebrity Big Brother, Tiffany wound up getting into a bit of a spat with housemate Gemma Collins, and her stinging delivery really packed a punch!

Being An Outspoken LGBTQ+ Ally
Tiffany’s time on CBB also brought out a moment that many of her LGBTQ fans love dearly: standing up against homophobic views held by housemate Winston McKenzie.

Her appearing as a guest judge on Ru Paul’s Drag Race and playing the role of a supportive auntie on DTLA are also worth acknowledging.
