Tiffany first spoke out about the incident publicly when she guest hosted The Ellen DeGeneres Show in April 2022. “Yes, I did get charged with a DUI, which stand for Dumb Unfortunate Incidents,” she joked during the episode. She also mentioned the arrest during an interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
“I can say this, Jimmy. I’ve been praying to God to send me a new man, a good man, and God went ahead and sent me four in a uniform. I wasn’t expecting it,” she joked before adding, “Now, I’ve got a really great lawyer, and we’re gonna work it out.”
