O, Tiff! Tiffany Haddish Teaches Us the Importance of Being Earnest With Oprah

Is there anyone quite as adorable as Tiffany Haddish? The comedian and actress is making a scene-stealing and increasingly successful career out of her unfiltered, around-the-way, every-girl humor, and audiences everywhere are eating it up.


So it was no surprise that Haddish, our homegirl in our minds, stole the show while appearing on Ellen Thursday, regaling host Ellen DeGeneres with her tales of being an Oprah Winfrey superfan, and a hilarious business plan for them to run a homegrown fruit-and-vegetable empire called “Tiff & O’s.”

As fate would have it, Oprah had been an earlier guest on yesterday’s show but purportedly had to run before Haddish’s segment—because, well, she’s Oprah. But Ellen is, of course, also Ellen, so the surprise was on Haddish when the great and powerful O re-emerged from the wings to meet her biggest fan, who fought back tears as she was greeted with a hug.


While we can only imagine how joyful it must feel to have Oprah tell you how good you are and how proud you make her, the best was yet to come, straight from Haddish’s garden. Because what do you make with the woman who seems to make everything she touches grow? “Joyful greens”!
