That Time Tiffany ‘New York’ Pollard Heard About David Bowie’s Death

The rock legend died of liver cancer earlier this week.

“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.
