How Tiffany Haddish Manifested The House & The Life Of Her Dreams

Everything she's ever wanted, the multi-hyphenate has achieved.

Celebrity News

Tiffany Haddish is on a mission to inspire children and build their confidence through her children’s book Layla, the Last Black Unicorn. The comedian has been very open about her childhood and the struggles she faced after her mother’s accident, which Tiffany said had a permanent effect on her mother’s personality due to brain damage. After her mom’s accident, she ended up in foster care but despite all the adversity she experienced, she was still determined to have a better life and eventually manifested the life of her dreams.


While speaking to E! News’ Daily Pop, the Like a Boss star revealed that she manifested the house that she’s living in. "I'm literally sitting in the house that I used to walk past as a young girl and say, ‘That's my house. That's my house.' I bought that house," she said. "I bought this house off the Internet because that was my dream to, like, ‘That's my house.' And I got it. Everything I've ever wanted, for the most part—there's a few things I don't have—but I've achieved it. Did I think it was gonna happen? I wasn't sure, never was sure, but I always put the work in to get to it."

The concept behind Layla, the Last Black Unicorn derives from Tiffany’s childhood as she was constantly teased for being different. She wants kids to know that it’s okay to be different and uses her book to celebrate their uniqueness.

"It's inspired by my childhood and how different I was and how hard it was for me to fit in," she said. "Realizing that my differences can be my wins and it can help others, and so I wanted to share that with kids. Also, growing up, I didn't see too many books by Black female authors, so I thought this was a good way to start kicking that door open—even though there are a lot of books out by Black, female authors now, because I was a kid a very long time ago—but I figured I'd join the club."

Layla, the Last Black Unicorn follows up on her first book The Last Black Unicornwhere she opened up about her childhood and how she used laughter as a way to survive.

How To Date Someone Who Is Not Your Physical 'Type'

I, like so many other people, have often struggled with the idea of dating people who aren’t my type. It’s not that I’m not open to dating someone I’m not attracted to, it’s really just a matter of how? How do you reject everything you know and give something new a chance? Especially when it seems that we’re not authentically attracted to “something new” because it is oftentimes so different from who we’d usually pursue. Admittedly, attraction can be superficial upon meeting anyone considering all you see are looks. However, shouldn’t you be able to enjoy your person physically in addition to all of the other stuff?
