Tiffany Haddish is said to be “clear and grounded” about her newfound sobriety.

The comic, 44, was last year arrested for driving under the influence after a similar incident in 2022, but has now been sober for nearly three months – and her friend, photographer Amanda de Cadenet has now said she is extremely impressed with how she is handling her sober journey.

Amanda, 51, who recently interviewed Tiffany on her ‘The Conversation’ podcast and has been sober for 20 years, told Page Six: “I’m used to people talking about their sobriety in a way that feels… some people are disingenuous and what I felt with Tiffany, was that she was very clear and grounded.

“She had great insights about herself during her period of time that she’s been sober (which is) not very long to have had all of those insights.

“Sobriety is a way of life that she will continue to choose because it seems like it’s really working for her… it sounded to me like she’s very focused on healing both physically, and emotionally.”

During her appearance last month on Amanda’s podcast, Tiffany said she hadn’t “drank any alcohol, smoked any weed or anything in, like, 72 days”.

She added: “It’s not that hard because it wasn’t really like my main thing anyway. “You know what I found out my main thing is? Meat, chicken, beef… and candy.”

When Amanda asked Tiffany if she considered herself sober, the comedian referred to her two DUI arrests and replied: “I consider myself being obedient to the law. It’s court mandated. Two years, I’ve been waiting for my hearing in Georgia, and what happened in LA triggered Georgia.”

Tiffany also said she only smoked marijuana to deal with her endometriosis, adding: “When that was all taken away from me, it was like, ‘OK, let me try this whole vegan (thing)… I’m going to try raw vegan and see how that goes.”

A source also recently told Page Six Tiffany is “serious about her sobriety”.

They added: “She’s very into her health right now. She’s going through her changes and is doing amazing.”
