After DUI Arrests, Tiffany Haddish Reveals Alcohol Isn’t Her Problem. It’s This …

While things have legally been settled as it relates to Tiffany Haddish’s latest legal issues involving DUIs, the “Girls Trip” star is steal dealing with some form of an aftermath.

In a recent interview on the “The Coversation with Amanda de Cadenet” podcast, Haddish opened up about her sobriety journey following her controversial Thanksgiving 2023 DUI arrest.

As previously reported by The Root, the “Night School” star was arrested in the wee hours on Black Friday morning in Nov. 2023, in Los Angeles after having previously performed at the Laugh Factory in West Hollywood earlier that evening for the club’s 43rd annual free community Thanksgiving feast.

Around 5:45 a.m. PT, someone alerted Beverly Hills Police Department that there was a person stopped in the middle of Beverly Drive, with the driver reportedly “slumped over the wheel” while the car was still running. When police showed up, they found Haddish and she was subsequently taken to jail without incident for suspicion of driving under the influence. No one was injured in the incident.

As a result, the “Like a Boss” star pleaded no contest to reckless driving and took a plea deal which resulted in her getting the two misdemeanor charges dropped altogether. Her charges were reduced down to “wet reckless,” which means Haddish’s license won’t be suspended like it would have been had she actually been officially charged with a DUI.

In a statement to People, Haddish’s attorney said at the time: “Ms. Haddish has agreed to a simple vehicle code violation (not driving under the influence, which has been dismissed) and looks forward to this being behind her.”

Now, in this latest intervew, Haddish shared how she’s been taking charge of her health and getting a grip on her relationship with alcohol, which she describes as not her “not that hard.”

“It’s not that hard because it wasn’t really like my main thing anyway,” Haddish explained. “You know what I found out my main thing is? Meat, chicken, beef… and candy.”

Later, when asked if she considered herself sober, Haddish said: “I consider myself being obedient to the law. It’s court mandated. Two years, I’ve been waiting for my hearing in Georgia, and what happened in LA triggered Georgia.”

The “Nobody’s Fool” star also touched on her relationship with smoking weed, explaining that she only did so to help with her endometriosis diagnosis. However, now she’s embarked on a more raw vegan regimen as a replacement.

Additionally, a source close to Haddish told Page Six that the comedian was “serious about her sobriety” and “very into her health right now. She’s going through her changes and is doing amazing.”

An Emotional Jamie Foxx Makes His First Major Appearance Since Emergency Hospitalization

Jamie Foxx returned to the spotlight on Monday night — and to the delight of fans, he was back to his hilarious jokester self.

He attended the Critics Choice Association‘s Celebration of Cinema and Television: Honoring Black, Latino and AAPI Achievements to accept the Vanguard Award for his work in the Prime Video movie “The Burial.” The Oscar winner cracked up the audience as he recalled his battle with a serious “medical complication.”

After receiving a beautiful tribute from his “The Burial” co-star Jurnee Smollett, Foxx triumphantly walked across the stage to the excited cheers of attendees. He offered his thanks for the recognition of his work before switching gears to poke fun at the conspiracy theories that surrounded his medical emergency.

“I’ve been through something. I’ve been through some things,” Foxx said. “You know, it’s crazy, I couldn’t do that six months ago — I couldn’t actually walk. I’m not a clone, I’m not a clone. I know a lot of people who was saying I was cloned out there.”

In April, the “Ray” star was rushed to an Atlanta hospital with a “medical complication.” His family kept details quiet, which led the internet to wildly speculate on his condition and the cause of his health issues. As he commanded the stage like the born entertainer that he is, the “Blame It” singer reflected on his new appreciation for life, noting that everything feels “different” now.

“It feels good to be here. I cherish every single minute now. It’s different. It’s different,” he said. “I wouldn’t wish what I went through on my worst enemy, because it’s tough when you almost…When it’s almost over, when you see the tunnel.”

One thing that became clear during his speech was that Jamie hasn’t lost his comedic timing or brilliance. The way he transitioned between the serious emotions of his experience and the humorous aspects of almost dying was pure genius.

“I saw the tunnel. I didn’t see the light,” Foxx joked. “It was hot in that tunnel so I didn’t know where I was going. Shit, am I going to the right place? I seen the devil goin ‘C’mon, now.’”

Despite his good spirits, Jamie was noticeably emotional about the moment. He closed his acceptance speech by truly appreciating everything it took to get him back on stage where he belongs.

“I want to say six months ago I couldn’t fathom that this could happen or that I would be here, but as I walk up here to this microphone and get this Vanguard Award, all I can say is ‘Lord, have mercy, Jesus,’” he said.
