That Time Tiffany ‘New York’ Pollard Heard About David Bowie’s Death
“Oh, God. This is not going well.”
As previously reported, David Bowie’s ex-wife, Angie Bowie, who is currently starring on Celebrity Big Brother UK, was told in private by show producers about David’s passing on Sunday, Jan. 11. In a clip from the show, Angie informs the infamous Tiffany “New York” Pollard about David’s death, and New York’s reaction is… extreme. One problem: likely owing to the fact Angie did not use a last name, New York believes Angie is talking about David Gest, another Big Brother contestant. Watch below.
The entire ordeal — which stretches on for more than six minutes and can and should be watched in its entirety — is an excruciating farce that is equal parts upsetting and hilarious. In a way, it almost works as a tribute to the late, great rock icon, who dabbled often in the Theater of the Absurd. In all other ways, it is a true embarrassment to all involved.
