When it comes to reality TV, Tiffany ‘New York’ Pollard is the gift that keeps on giving. Whether you know her from her robust reality television resume or the countless memes and gifs of her that circulate online, Pollard is beloved by fans across the nation. She’s bossy, she’s funny, and she definitely doesn’t know when to keep her mouth shut. That’s why it wasn’t all too surprising that she decided to open up with some shocking revelations about sex with the Public Enemy rapper Flavor Flav.
After starting out on Flavor of Love, the television show in which women competed to win Flavor Flav’s hear, Pollard quickly became the undisputed “H.B.I.C.” of reality television. She’s appeared on countless shows from Celebrity Big Brother to Scared Famous, and she has even had several spin-offs. Her dating show, I Love New York, was successful enough to last for two seasons and spawn yet another series about the star, New York Goes to Hollywood. Now, you can catch Pollard on her VH1 web miniseries Brunch with Tiffany
Fans of Flavor Flav will know that the rapper was rarely seen without a big signature clock hanging around his neck. He also gave clocks to his favorite Flavor of Love contestants, just like the Bachelor gives roses to his favorite contestants on the ABC. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Flavor Flav said that there was a deeper meaning behind his clock: “It represents time being the most important element in our life.” While that’s a sweet sentiment, Pollard has hinted that Flavor Flav might be a little too fond of his clock.
According to Showbiz Cheat Sheet Pollard recently revealed that Flavor Flav wears his clock constantly…even during romantic encounters. On an episode of The Real, host Jeannie Mai asked Pollard, “does he always keep [the clock] on, like, even when you guys ‘heh-heh-ed?'” To which Pollard responded, “Now, when we ‘heh-heh-ed’ he had different sized clocks…He had a mini–a miniature clock for that activity.” In this case Mai and Pollard used the term “heh-heh-ed” as a euphemism for having sex. Understandably, the hosts of The Real were positively shocked to hear this news. Mai even felt the need to clarify: “So you guys would keep the clock on the whole time?” In response, Pollard dropped even more shocking information. She stated, “Yes, girl, he used to leave scratches on my chest…From the clock. From the clock.”
Pollard first met Flav when she was cast in Flavor of Love in 2006. That was also where she earned her iconic nickname “New York,” as Flav gave all the contestants on the show similar nicknames. Pollard did not win but was the runner up for the first season of Flavor of Love. After becoming a fan favorite and star villain on the show, she was brought back as a surprise for Season 2. While was only the runner up again, Pollard won fame and an enormous career from Flavor of Love.
