Tiffany did call herself ghetto a number of times during Cycle 4. However, people make self-deprecating comments all the time and most people have the good sense not to join in. Bald people joke about their baldness, ethnic groups joke about their ethnicity, southerners joke about the southern mannerisms, etc. But in general, people don't assume that they have permission to freely make those kind of comments.

Tiffany also bitched incessantly during the acting thing when some of the girls called Cockney White ghetto english. WTF, Tiffany? Miss Openly Calls Herself Ghetto can't stand a joke that was not even directed at her, about something she called HERSELF? Sorry, I was just in a state of extreme WTF at that time. (pats Tiffany Doll)
On the show yesterday, Tiffany explained what she meant when she said I might seem ghetto. She was not saying it in a self-deprecating way. She also said she was tired of people promising to do things for her and never come through. She was talking about all the promises Tyra made to her, but Tyra kept interrupting her. Tyra was saying she was telling Tiffany how beautiful she was, but that was for TV. She was real nasty to Tiffany behind the scenes. Tyra is trying to make America think that Tiffany asked her for help and She also lied about having a vested interest in Tiffany. Tyra has not done anything for Tiffany, nothing at all, Tyra is a lying phoney. I donít blame Tiffany for not opening up to her or her quack of a psychotherapist because all Tyra is going to do is turn it around and try to use it against her like she did with Kim and Sarah. Tyra canít be trusted with peopleís personal information. Tyra never mentions any of the positive things that Tiffany is doing in the community, she is a real mentor not a fake one like Tyra. Bottom line Tyra loves Tiffany on tv, not in real life. Tyra is all about ratings and she doesnít care who she has to use or hurt to get them.
Oh and Tiffany was never "bitching" or complaining, she was making jokes.

I don't agree. I don't think it's funny that Tiffany referred to herself as "ghetto" the whole time, and to me, it seemed to be a big gimmick for her. If she saw herself as ghetto and took every opportunity to refer to herself as such, why get mad when others begin to view her like that? I don't think Tyra is right or is justified in calling her that, but Tiffany seriously annoyed me with that nonsense.
"What, sucka?! Do you want me to stab you with this spoon? In yo jugular?"
Reading these recent entries has provided a lot of insight.
Tiffany is a beautiful gal. I think she could use a model or entertainment type mentor. Perhaps a modeling agent or another agent would be of best assistance.
It's great that pretty Tiffany is out there being seen by young people who want to change and better their lives:
