It was a battle of the VH1 stars at TV One’s The Next :15 reunion. Current Family Therapy star Tiffany “New York” Pollard got into it with former Basketball Wives LA star Laura Govan for a joke about complexion.
On the series, Govan made a joke to Jennifer Williams, saying, “I wish we had a little more light-skinned people. Is that racist?” When called to task about the potentially problematic aside, Govan said it was just in good humor. “That was to be funny. All of us are light skinned. It had nothing to do with nothing. I thought it was funny, [if] you didn’t think it was funny, f–k you.”
Tiffany didn’t accept this apology though and said Laura’s “not even black,” she continued, “If you are black then why bring that up? Why make tone such a subject to say, if you are black and you’re standing in it, stand in it in all shades.”
Oop. Are you Team Tiffany or Team Laura?
