Tiffany “New York” Pollard

American television personality Tiffany “New York” Pollard will be honored as this year’s ARTAS Hall of Fame Award inductee. Pollard came into public prominence for her participation in the first two seasons of VH1’s “Flavor of Love.” Pollard, who was given the moniker “New York” by rapper Flavor Flav, went on to star in the Flavor Of Love spinoff “I Love New York” (VH1), the UK version of “Celebrity Big Brother” (Channel 5), “Brunch with Tiffany” (VH1), and most recently as host of the sizzling new OUTtv competition to find the next queer sex symbol, “Hot Haus.” Pollard was also just announced to join the upcoming season of the BET+ hit reality series, “College Hill: Celebrity Edition.”

Launched in 2015, the ARTAS Hall of Fame Award exemplifies one (or more) stand-out, memorable, and iconic reality television personalities. Pollard was selected because of her longevity in the genre, her breadth of work, and her unprecedented popularity in the reality television universe. She joins previous ARTAS Hall of Fame inductees, MTV’s “The Hills” Heidi and Spencer Pratt (2015) and the very first supermodel and iconic judge of The CW’s America’s Next Top Model, Janice Dickinson (2016).

Creators and Executive Producers Kristen Moss and Andrew Ward launched the American Reality Television Awards in 2012, along with John Barra, Showrunner, Talent Producer, and Co-Executive Producer. The ARTAS is co-produced in association with Executive Producers Shantal Anderson, De Mann, and Co-Executive Producer Jeff Rivera, Partner at Collective 5 Entertainment.

This year’s ARTAS will provide virtual reality fans a groundbreaking opportunity to experience the celebration in the Metaverse via Reel Mood, the exclusive Web 3.0 partner.
