VH1 confirms Tiffany Pollard’s New York Goes to Hollywood series

VH1 has confirmed that Tiffany Pollard will appear in a sixth reality series for the network. New York Goes to Hollywood will follow “her other life dream”: to become “a legit actress,” according to VH1.

The press release also says that “New York has to put her last conquest, Tailor Made, on the backburner as she tries to take on Tinsel Town. She’s moving out west to see if she can climb the Hollywood ladder.” An earlier report about the spin-off suggested Tailor Made, George Weisgerber, would star in the series with her, but the press release makes it sound like he won’t be part of the show.

No debut date has been announced, but the show will have 10 half-hour episodes.
