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

When Pumkin was finally eliminated, she spat straight at Tiffany, which triggered her. However, New York tried to get her 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), although she entered mid-series. Immediately upon entering the household, she let the others know that she is the HBIC and quickly began to call the shots.
Flavor of Love Season 2 was so ahead of its time. But there is something about New York’s first episode that is so hilarious 😭 https://t.co/jWaFsRYpbx pic.twitter.com/nFAiUh52Ak

Dealing with all her haters at the reunion
After the conclusion of Season 2, New York had many enemies, although she was sure to perform at the reunion and be “FABULOUSSSS”.
To say New York was unimpressed would be an understatement, and she held her own against a room full of women who absolutely despised her. Well, THIS is how a queen does it!

Be an outspoken LGBTQ+ ally
Tiffany’s time at CBB also spawned a moment that many of her LGBTQ fans love dearly: taking a stand against her roommate Winston McKenzie’s homophobic views.
