Tiffany Haddish Explains to Colbert How ‘Batteries are a Girl’s Best Friend’


Actress Tiffany Haddish appeared on The Late Show and dished about her personal life.

Stephen Colbert asked Haddish if she had to “give anything up” in her life since she’s been busy making movies (she has three coming out in the next three months). She responded by saying she’s “kept up with most things” but she hasn’t been dating.

“My relationships, my personal relationships haven’t been that good,” Haddish told Colbert. “But I have been keeping up with my weighted blanket and my toys I get off of Groupon.”

The audience roared with laughter.

“And batteries. Batteries are a girl’s best friend,” she added. “I like how the band lookin’ at me trying to figure out ‘What is she talking about?'”

“I’ll add myself to that list,” Colbert joked.

The Late Show host then asked the Night School star what a “weighted blanket” is.

“A weighted blanket is a blanket that is like filled with, I think, sand. I’m not sure what the material is,” Haddish responded. “It’s, like, 25 pounds, right? And you can throw that over your legs, and you spray a little cologne over it and throw it over your arms and it feel like a man is holding you. And you snuggle up in it like this right here, like that right there.”

The comedian then demonstrated the pose.

“And then you open up your night stand drawer, put your batteries in,” Haddish said with a big smile, “and go to sleep!… And then you don’t have to make him breakfast or talk to the weighted blanket or nothing.”
