When actress Tiffany Haddish first let the cat out of the bag about a party incident with Beyonce, she kept quiet about one particular detail, #WhoBitBeyonce...now, she finally confirms fellow actress Sanaa Lathan bit Beyonce at the party. But what happened afterward? Tiffany opens up about the initial backlash she received from Lathan's parents.
When Beyonce's name came up in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Haddish asked journalist Lacey Rose if she knew who did it. Rose whispered the rumored name, Sanaa Lathan. Haddish smiled and said,
"I'm super good friends with her stepmom and her dad [Stan, a producer-director], and they were mad at me," she reveals. "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 Beyonce kept me from goin' to jail that night. I coulda just shut my whole career down."
I wonder aloud if there's been any other fallout, and she insists no, just the opposite. "The other day, someone was saying, like, 'Oh my God, you should keep your mouth shut 'cause now you're never gonna be invited to parties,' but I got invited to way more parties after that," she tells me. "It's ridiculous how many parties. 'Can you come to my party?' 'Can you come to my thing?' They want me to talk about something at their thing 'cause they think, like, 'This is gonna put me back on if Tiffany says something.'" If only Tiffany Haddish had time to party more.
