Reality Star Tiffany “New York” Pollard will be honored in a Brooklyn museum for her contributions to pop culture. The famed reality star got her start on Flavor of Love and her personality spawned into seats on many other reality shows including seasons of her own I Love New York. Her outgoing performances have turned her into a meme and GIF goddess for millennials.
According to VH1, THNK 1994 will dedicate an exhibit to Pollard titled “David’s Dead: A Celebration of Tiffany Pollard.” Though she has created some of the most memorable moments on all the shows she’s appeared on the Brooklyn exhibit will center in on her role on Celebrity Big Brother (U.K.).
“While this will be a celebration of her entire oeuvre we will focus on her masterpiece David’s Dead, which we believe is the pinnacle of reality television, roughly 7 minutes of pure unbridled chaos in the celebrity UK Big Brother house wherein David Bowie’s widow gets the news of his death and has to tell someone, she tells Tiffany who thinks she’s talking about David Gest (Liza Minnelli’s ‘ex-husband’) who is also in the house and has been sick in bed,” read a statement from the museum.
“David’s Dead: A Celebration of Tiffany Pollard” will show at THNK 1994 until June 3.
