The original HBIC made her return to TV this week with Scared Famous. Where else would you rather see Tiffany “New York” Pollard than living in a haunted house with nine other reality stars competing to win money for charity? When Tiffany entered the house, her status as reality TV OG was solidified because everyone knew exactly who she was because of her time on Flavor of Love, I Love New York and Family Therapy, where she co-starred along with her mother, Sister Patterson.
It’s been a minute since we’ve seen Sister Patterson, however that hasn’t stopped us from missing her and her one-of-a-kind personality.
Luckily, in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, New York gets real about living with her roommates in a haunted house and why she didn’t tell her mom she was on the show.
On living with nine other reality stars in a haunted house, Tiffany said, “It was all nerve-racking! Any scenario where I’m living with strangers, I’m automatically annoyed. I knew I was going to be annoyed by the other housemates, but on top of that, there were ghosts there, and they made their presence known! I decided to align myself more with the ghosts than the people. They were easier to get along with.” When the writer pushed back, asking Tiffany if she really made friends with ghosts, she answered, “Without giving away too much, I definitely made friends with a set of twin girls.”
And then, of course, the interview continues with what we all want to know, what Sister Patterson had to say about the show. The writer asked if Sister Patterson because of her religious and spiritual beliefs had reservations about her daughter signing up for a spooky reality series.
“She’s doing wonderful. She’s definitely doing more reality TV coming up in the near future, so we’ll see more Sister Patterson soon… but I didn’t tell her [I was going on Scared Famous]! But I did call her [while I was there] because the house was so spiritually heightened one day that I had to call her and get some advice. She’s clairvoyant, so she was able to see my surroundings and she was like, “I see exactly where you are! Those spirits calling your name are dressed in white, and they’re coming toward you!” I was like “Mom, be quiet, you’re making me even more scared.”
TBH, this is the most Sister Patterson thing she could say. You can read the rest of the interview here.
