Tiffany Haddish Says Common Can Keep The Wedding Ring, She Wants Something Else

Sometimes if he love it, he doesn't have to put a ring on it.

Tiffany Haddish

Like many, I was introduced to Tiffany Haddish when I went to see the hilarious film Girls Trip. I came into the theatre expecting to chuckle a bit and just enjoy a movie night. But little did I know, this was a film I'd be watching so many more times and that would put Tiffany on the map as a breakout star. From start to finish, I laughed hysterically and even spent the evening with one of my girlfriends, sharing and reflecting on our own college memories. Fast forward to today, Tiffany Haddish is an Emmy- and Grammy-winning household name.


Currently, she's promoting her latest film, The Card Counter, and appeared as a guest on The SmartLess Podcast. During the episode, she discussed how comedy affected her childhood, past struggles, entrepreneurial efforts, and life with her boo, artist, and actor Common.

At the start of the interview, she mentioned how she enjoys Netflix and chilling with him, traveling, and spending weekends networking. It all sounded so normal, you'd never guess she overcame some of the trials she has or lives the life she does. But from chasing her dreams while battling homelessness to the present, where she is planning to open a line of grocery stores, Tiffany Haddish really doesn't do anything "normal."

And that includes her relationship.

When asked if she and Common were going to get married, she said:

"I have no idea. I would love for him to always be my friend. If he decides he wants to marry me, cool. But, I don't want a ring. I want an apartment building. You know how they are like, present me with a ring. I want him to present me with the deed to a duplex."

She explained her reasoning further saying that if they were to get sick or some type of problem occurred, the duplex would always provide income.

"A marriage is a union of two businesses and the whole point of coming together is to grow yourselves, grow a family, and make sure they have something to inherit."

Well, while I can't help kind of still wanting a ring, it does make you think, would something else be the better choice? As times change, some people's expectations and views of marriage have shifted while others stay the same. I think ultimately it's just about knowing yourself and your partner and what will bring you both happiness.

For Tiffany Haddish, that's eventually growing her family and providing opportunities to people who need it. She shares:

"I also want to adopt. Because I wish somebody would have adopted me and taught me better. Everything I wish people would have done for me is what I'm trying to give to others."

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.
