DAYTIME DIVAS: Wendy Williams Wants Sit Down With Sherri Shepherd After Fat Joe Interview Drama, Demands $100M For Podcast Deal

Wendy Williams is ready to make her comeback. But first, she wants to chop it up with her replacement Sherri Shepherd after she responded to Wendy’s Fat Joe interview where she said she would not be watching her follow-up show. They should probably have a meeting since the “Wendy” staff wants the veteran daytime talk show host to come back for the season finale.

 

Also, Wendy is looking to make a $100 million move to the podcast world. Deets inside…

 

Wendy Williams would like to have a sit down with Sherri Shepherd to discuss some things following some social media drama that sparked after Wendy did an interview with Fat Joe.

“I have tons of support around me, and I am working on projects,” Wendy told Page Six. ”I would love the chance to actually speak with Sherri and sit down and meet.”

LaShawn Thomas, Wendy’s attorney, added the 57-year-old host has “no ill will” towards Sherri.

“Wendy requesting to have a sit-down with Sherri to have a meeting of the minds is the perfect solution as she has no ill will or intent,” LaShawn said. “Wendy is preparing to get her show back in motion.”

Which show? That has yet to be determined. As you know, Sherri permanently replaced Wendy after her long-running daytime talk show was canceled due to Wendy’s physical and mental health struggles. After guest hosting, Sherri landed her own self-titled show (with the same “Wendy” staff) that’s set to premiere this fall.

While chopping it up with Joe on IG Live, Wendy said she likes Sherri, but she will not be watching her show.

“I like her, but I won’t be watching her because I know what she’s going to be doing and that’s really not my thing,” Wendy said. “Anyway, but I love being on my own show and I love that people love to watch it all the time.”

During the interview, Wendy also talked about only having “$2” to her name and how she’s maintaining despite her not being able to access any of her money:

Sherri Shepherd said she watched Wendy’s interview with Fat Joe in an IG Live. And some folks feel she was being very shady towards the veteran talk show host.

“I did hear Wendy say she will not watch me on the new show. And that’s OK,” she said during an IG Live. “You know, I understand.”

“I’m truly concerned about her because I don’t feel there’s anybody over there protecting her, and it’s really hard when there’s no protection around you, and you just have people hanging on,” the former “The View” co-host said.

“She’s by herself. It’s not like she’s got her husband Kevin [Hunter Sr.],” she said. “She’s by herself. The only person that she has that’s taking care of her is her 21-year-old son Kevin Jr., and he’s 21. She’s not well. It’s just a lot going on in Wendy’s life,” she said.

Wendy’s rep – Shawn Zanotti – popped back at Sherri’s response:

“I personally feel that it is difficult to wish a person well, which Sherri did, while attempting to health-shame them at the same time, especially since Wendy was the one who created multiple platforms that gave Sherri several opportunities,” Shawn told Page Six in a statement. “Wendy is an icon and should be respected as such.”

Maybe they should have that sit down to has everything out since some of the “Wendy” staffers want the veteran host to at least return for the show’s season finale.

Page Six reports:

“There’s talk [of how to say goodbye] and a lot of people on staff feel like there should be a tribute to [Wendy] or some kind of farewell,” an insider revealed to Page Six. But, at the end of the day, “It’s her show and she’s not there for it,” they added.

The insider insists that staffers are angling for her to return for one last show because “they have all these fond memories.”

“People want her to come back… A lot of people — especially the mid and low-level producers — signed up for the job because of Wendy. It feels like it’s just going to end [without her]. It’s weird,” they said.

Meanwhile, another source told us that staffers are still traumatized over Williams’ allegedly erratic behavior in recent years.

“There have been days where people thought they wouldn’t have a job because she wouldn’t show up to work, so this idea that there’s some conundrum? No,” they said.

As for Wendy’s “comeback,” word on the curb is that she’s looking to make a splash in the podcast world. However, she wants big bucks to do so.

Sources told The Sun Wendy has received countless offers for a podcast ever since she stopped appearing on “The Wendy Williams Show” due to her ongoing personal issues.

They said Wendy would like the podcast to stream either on iHeart Radio or Spotify and since she’s a solid radio veteran, she believes she’s worth a big bag – like Joe Rogan, who signed a $100 million podcast contract with Spotify.

“She sees Joe Rogan has a $100million podcast deal, and now she wants that kind of money,” the source said.

Hmm…Wendy will likely have to prove she’s healthy and/or consistent enough to complete a daily or weekly show before they drop those millions.

MET GALA AFTERMATH: Cardi B Says She’s A ‘Prisoner Of Fame’ After Joke About Doing Drugs Caused Faux Beef With Billie Eilish

Cardi B is sick and tired of fame! She’s sounding off about the backlash she has been receiving after she made a joke about “doing drugs” during Playboy’s Met Gala afterparty. Billie Eilish was caught on camera saying “she’s weird,” which started speculations that she was shading Cardi.

 

Both Cardi & Billie set the record straight in the DMs. Everything inside….

 

Cardi B sets the record straight after social media seemingly manufactured drama between herself and Billie Eilish following the biggest night in fashion.

Folks were in an uproar after a video of Cardi joking about "doing drugs" and Billie Eilish calling her “weird” afterwards started circulating. In the clip, Cardi speaks before the crowd, encouraging people to get drinks and then she jokingly sniffed and placed her finger under her nose, alluding to snorting that white stuff.

“Make sure you got your drinks, make sure y’all do your little [lines]. Whatever the f**k you have to do. We got to turn the **k up. I want everybody dancing!,” she said.

Right after, it cuts to Billie Eilish saying, “she so weird.”

The Grammy winning raptress teamed up with Playboy as publication’s newest Creative Director to host “The Boom Boom After Party” held at the Standard’s Boom Boom Room.

After the clip started circulating, the “Be Careful” rapper hopped on Twitter where she posted and then deleted what some fans believe was a subliminal aimed at the 20-year-old pop star. Check it out below:

Despite the post, Cardi shut down the rumors that she and Billie have “beef.” The “WAP” raptress hopped on social media to share a screen recording of her conversation with Billie in the DMs. They two artists sent voice notes to one another about the “incident.”

"Oh my God, I was so worried that you were going to see that. I was f*cking calling the people around you weird because everybody was coming up to you, shoving their phones into your ass. And I was like, ‘Just look at her with your eyes!’,” Billie said in the voice memo.

"The internet is trying to divide us. They don’t understand that you’re my baby,” responded Cardi. Listen below:

 

I hate the internet cause one, how do y’all turn one of the most lit parties into drama? Two, Ocean eyes is the song I cater to my daughter. Three,Billie is my fuckin baby.Yesterday, from the met to the party, everything was drama free. Why do yallwanna turn everything into mess? pic.twitter.com/cyph1XbmE2

”I hate the internet cause one, how do y’all turn one of the most lit parties into drama?" Cardi tweeted after the video started circulating. "Two, Ocean eyes is the song I cater to my daughter. Three, Billie is my fuckin baby. Yesterday, from the met to the party, everything was drama free. Why do yallwanna turn everything into mess?"

The 29-year-old mom-of-two went on to explain how frustrated she is with fame, insisting what she said while hosting the party was a JOKE.

“Fame has turned me into a prisoner,” she said in an IG Live. ”I really feel like I’m a prisoner to fame. I’m not myself anymore."

“I make one joke as a hostess because I am hosting a party and it gets twisted. Why can’t every celebrity joke around and say slick s**t?” she told her followers, admitting she’s “scared” to make any wrong moves. “I’m tired. I can’t be myself anymore,” she continued. “Anything that will go on social media is always bad. If I could click my f**king feet three times and go back to f**king 2013 when I was just a regular b*tch, dancing and making money every single night, that is where I want to be. That’s when I was me.”

In her eyes, God has "cursed" her with fame and she’s over it. She told her fans not to wish to be famous – just wish to be rich.

Kevin Hunter Sr. Says He Doesn’t Regret Affair Or Baby With Sharina, Reveals Wendy Williams Had 2 Blood Transfusions & That He’s Suing Producers

Kevin Hunter Sr. Wendy Williams’ ex-husband – is speaking out for the first time since the cheating and divorce drama popped up and went totally left. In an hour-long IG Live, the former “Wendy Show” exec producer says he doesn’t regret having an affair and a baby outside of his marriage, and shares interesting updates about Wendy and the lawsuit he’s filing.

Highlights inside…

As Wendy Williams’ world seemingly spiraled out of control before our very eyes, her now ex-husband Kevin Hunter Sr. remained silent about what was happening the behind-the-scenes.

Now, he’s ready to share his side of the story…at least, he’s “being as forthright as he chooses to be.” And the timing of him speaking out is, well, interesting.

The former “Wendy Williams Show” executive producer hopped on Instagram Live via his business page after trying to do a live from his personal account. He was having technical difficulties, but worked it out.

In the beginning of the clip, Kevin praised Wendy for her accomplishments and said he was proud to help the career of one of the most polarizing and prolific talents we’ve ever seen. Immediately after, he started talking about how sometimes when “you do things in the trenches” that karma has a way of coming back on you. Hmph.

It was weird watching him try to downplay his infidelity during his marriage to Wendy that lasted over two decades. We know now that he had a mistress, Sharina Hudson, for at least a decade during their marriage. He said he doesn’t regret his affair with Sharina Hudson, nor does he regret having a baby with her.

”I’m sorry that the emergence of life…how I decided to bring it, hurt her and the whole stereotype of what happens when a man does that. I understand that you can’t make everyone happy in that instance. But I do not regret what happened. I was not trapped into what happened. As a matter of fact, and again I am profusely apologetic for the impact it cause. I realize that.”

He alluded Sharina suggested she get an abortion when she found out she was pregnant.

”As a matter of fact, the mother of my child, when we discovered that she was like… she was the first one to try to suggest an alternative and I actually said no. And that’s because of the joy that I needed to have in my life at the time,” he said. “There were a lot of things I couldn’t control. But yeah, I could have controlled my actions better if I chose to, but until you’ve been in my shoes wholeheartedly to understand exactly what I was dealing with, you can’t tell me nothing. I don’t know too many men who could have did exactly what I did.”

He claims Wendy was “going through stuff” before the “baby situation.” So add more "stuff" to what she’s already going through?! Make it make sense. 

Kevin said he “fought” for “family” for many days because he wanted to keep his family together. “Family wasn’t a priority like it should have been,” he said insinuating Wendy was chasing her dreams and put family on the back burner. He said she put her career before anything and that started to deteriorate their marriage.

Kevin mentioned he wanted his son, Kevin Hunter Jr., to have a "blood sibling" in this world, which almost seems like SHADE to Wendy being that she suffered several miscarriages in the past, so it’s not as if she didn’t TRY. Ugh, men.

In 2019, Kevin was fired as an executive producer of the “Wendy Williams Show” after Wendy filed for divorce. He claims he was wrongfully terminated, so he’s SUING Debmar-Mercury (which distributes the Wendy Show). He feels HE’s responsible for the show’s success and claims they owe him. Hmph.

”My job was stripped from me because who I choose to be with,” he said during the Live.

He filed the wrongful termination suit March 1st after the talk show terminated him "on the basis of his marital status, which is barred by the New York City Human Rights Law," according to documents obtained by E! News. He claims his termination notice didn’t give any reasons for his firing that were based on his performance or decisions made on the job.

Per the court docs, Hunter said that he has suffered between $7 million to $10 million in "economic loss" as a result of his firing.

After he left, Kevin said people around Wendy tried to discredit all of the hard work he put in over the years as her manager and producer of the daytime talk show. Their divorce was finalized in 2020.

Even after their divorce, Kevin Sr. said he tried to protect Wendy and blasted her management team for being “enablers.” Not only that, he accused her team of allegedly putting her in "a life and death situation" and denying medical coverage and care for her.

Kevin Sr. said his 20-year-old son saved Wendy’s life when he threatened to call 911to let first responders do a welfare check on his mother because he team wound’t allow it. He said Wendy had to have “two blood transfusions" afterwards, although he did not further explain why. Kevin Sr. also mentioned Wendy’s friend, DJ Boof, called him when she was having a hard time filming her show in her NYC apartment during quarantine.

The proud dad also set the record straight about his son’s scary situation with experimenting with the synthetic drug, K2. He claims he took Kevin Jr. (who was 14 at the time) to Honduras to be “healed” by Dr. Sebi and then gave credit to the “mother of my child” for helping him through that process, alluding Wendy didn’t help at all because she was already under pressure from the show.

”In hindsight, she [Wendy] probably needed to be there the most,” he said. ”I couldn’t put that pressure on someone who was already dealing with immense pressure. I tried to do the best I can at the weakest moment in my life because I thought my son was going to die.”

Wow. Men can be something else.

Earlier this week, Wendy was seen hopping on a flight from Newark, NJ to Miami, FL with her son, Kevin Jr., where she was overheard telling fans she was in the process of getting her show back. She said the same thing during a telephone interview with "Good Morning America" last week.

“This is what I would love to say to my Wendy watchers: Keep watching because I’m going to be back on the Wendy show bigger and brighter than ever,” she said during the interview.

The 57-year-old talk show queen also shed light on her legal drama with Wells Fargo Bank after they froze her accounts for two months, which she revealed prevented her from fulfilling her financial obligations, including mortgage payments and employee payroll.

In the legal court documents, Wells Fargo froze her accounts and requested a hearing for temporary guardianship where they referred to the popular daytime talk show host as an “incapacitated” person. According to the TV host, that’s not the truth.

Last month, producers of “The Wendy Show” confirmed the show would end after 14 seasons. Guest co-host Sherri Shepherd – who became a fan favorite – will take over Wendy’s time slot with her own self-titled talk, set to premiere this fall.

Wendy Williams Says She’s In The Process Of Getting Her Show Back While Talking To Fans In Miami

Wendy Williams was reportedly overheard telling fans she’s in the process of getting her show back after touching down in Miami. Deets on her trip to South Florida, plus Wendy’s ex-husband Kevin Hunter says he has a message about “ungodly things.” More inside…

Less than a week after giving her first interview since her daytime talk show was canceled, Wendy Williams is back in the headlines.

The 57-year-old daytime talk show host was spotted hopping on a flight out of Newark Airport headed to Miami with her son, Kevin Hunter Jr. TMZ photogs noted Wendy didn’t use a wheelchair, which fans have seen her use over the last year or so as she struggles with Graves’ disease and a thyroid condition.

After arriving in Miami around 12:30AM, sources told TMZ that Wendy was overheard telling a fan she was in the process of getting her show back and that she’s working things out with her money.

You’ll recall, Wendy appeared on “Good Morning America” (via telephone) for an interview where she told her Wendy Watchers she’s ready to get BACK to work – just give her a few months to work on some “private things.”

“Give me about three months,” she said in the phone interview. “There are private things that I have to deal with and then I’ll be ready to come back and be free and ready to do my thing.”

Last month, producers of “The Wendy Show” confirmed the show would end after 14 seasons. Gust co-host Sherri Shepherd – who became a fan favorite – will take over Wendy’s time slot with her own self-titled talk show, "Sherri," set to premiere this fall. 

Amid her health and career struggles, the media personality was also dealing with a legal battle with Wells Fargo Bank after they froze her accounts for two months, which she revealed prevented her from fulfilling her financial obligations, including mortgage payments and employee payroll.

“They say that I need somebody to handle my account. And I don’t want that,” she explained. “I want all my money. I want to see all my money that I’ve worked hard for my entire life. My entire life. I don’t lie, I don’t cheat and I don’t steal. I am an honest, hard-working person.”

In the legal court documents, Wells Fargo froze her accounts and requested a hearing for temporary guardianship where they referred to the popular daytime talk show host as an “incapacitated” person. According to the TV host, that’s not the truth.

“I want to spend more time with my family,” Wendy said. “And you know, working out and waiting for the responses to my money situation and Wells Fargo. And they don’t like that. I’ve worked hard every single day, even on days when you know, I might have a little cold.”

Wendy Williams Speaks Out About Her Health, Wells Fargo Bank Fiasco & Says She’s Making A Comeback Despite Show Cancellation

 

Wendy Williams speaks out for the first time since her daytime talk show was officially canceled. The media queen opens up about her current state of health, the fiasco with Wells Fargo locking down her accounts and assures her fans she’s making a comeback! More inside…

Wendy Williams is speaking out again, less than a month after reappearing on social media.

Following the official cancellation of her hit daytime self-titled talk show, the 57-year-old TV host wanted to reach out to her Wendy Watchers to update them on how she’s doing health wise, set the record straight on what happened with her Wells Fargo bank accounts getting locked down, and shares how long she needs before she’s ready to get back on television.

As you know, Wendy’s ailing health kept her from returning to the 13th season of her daytime talk show as she struggled with Graves’ disease and a thyroid condition. While there has been much speculation about Wendy’s health with rumors swirling that she was suffering with early stages of dementia and that she was wheelchair bound.

Today, Wendy appeared on “Good Morning America” for an interview with TJ Holmes. The talk show star decided NOT to do a video call, but she did chat it up via audio call to share what’s been going on with her. She said she’s ready to get BACK to work – just give her a few months and it’s on.

“Give me about three months,” she said in the phone interview. “There are private things that I have to deal with and then I’ll be ready to come back and be free and ready to do my thing.”

Last month, producers of “The Wendy Show” confirmed the show would end after 14 seasons. Gust co-host Sherri Shepherd – who became a fan favorite – will take over Wendy’s time slot with her own self-titled talk, set to premiere this fall. 

A few days before it was confirmed the show would end, Wendy reappeared on social media with a new verified Instagram handle. In a video, she shared she had been resting and relaxing in Florida surrounded by family and that she had big plans on “coming back stronger.”

However, fans weren’t totally convinced the video shared was recent based on some outdated things she mentioned in the clip, such as her age and speaking as if her mother was still alive.

Amid her health and career struggles, the media personality was also dealing with a legal battle with Wells Fargo Bank after they froze her accounts for two months, which she revealed prevented her from fulfilling her financial obligations, including mortgage payments and employee payroll.

“They say that I need somebody to handle my account. And I don’t want that,” she explained. “I want all my money. I want to see all my money that I’ve worked hard for my entire life. My entire life. I don’t lie, I don’t cheat and I don’t steal. I am an honest, hard-working person.”

In the legal court documents, Wells Fargo froze her accounts and requested a hearing for temporary guardianship where they referred to the popular daytime talk show host as an “incapacitated” person. According to the TV host, that’s not the truth.

“I want to spend more time with my family,” Williams said. “And you know, working out and waiting for the responses to my money situation and Wells Fargo. And they don’t like that. I’ve worked hard every single day, even on days when you know, I might have a little cold.”

We wonder what “THEY” she is referring to. It was previously reported that the mental health accusations stem from a “former employee who is upset because she no longer has direct and unfettered access to Wendy’s financial affairs.” 

“If I was sick because you know, my back — or you know, when I got the lymphedema and stuff like that — I would still do my show. But quickly, not long time, very quickly, it went bad regarding this money thing,” she shared.

According to the affidavit filed with the New York Supreme Court (obtained by Complex), the employee in question is her former financial advisor Lori Schiller.

“Wells Fargo’s priority is the financial well-being of Ms. Williams and the preservation of her privacy. As we have expressed to the Court, Wells Fargo is open to working with Ms. Williams’ counsel to release funds directly to her creditors for bills historically and regularly paid from her accounts,” a spokesperson for Wells Fargo said.

Don’t count her out just yet. Once Wendy handles some things privately behind the scenes, she said she’s coming back “bigger and brighter than ever.”

“This is what I would love to say to my Wendy watchers: Keep watching because I’m going to be back on the Wendy show bigger and brighter than ever,” she said.

Watch her full interview below:

Since 2019, Wendy has been battling with her health, divorced her husband, Kevin Hunter Sr., after two decades when she learned he fathered a child with another woman, her mother’s death, and she has been struggling with staying sober.

As all that was going on, the COVID-19 pandemic hit (which she tested postive for via a breakthrough case), only making things worse. We hope things turn around for the legendary TV host soon!

IT’S OFFICIAL: ‘Wendy Williams Show’ ENDS, Sherri Shepherd’s Show ‘Sherri’ Takes Over The Time Slot (Wendy’s Statement!)

After months of rumors, it’s official.  "Sherri" will replace "The Wendy Williams Show", the distribution company behind Wendy‘s soon-to-end talk show confirms.  Details inside.

Folks have been hoping Wendy Williams would return at some point to her iconic talk show after her heap of mental and physical health issues, but that’s not happening.  At least not in the same exact form as it was.

Today, distributor Debmar-Mercury announced that "The Wendy Williams Show" will be ending after 14 seasons, and long time guest host Sherri Shepherd will continue to guest host for the rest of the current season.

The company also revealed that the "Sex Lives of College Girls" star and former co-host of "The View" will be getting her own show, titled "Sherri", under their moniker.  In the fall, Sherri will officially take over the time periods held by Williams’ show on Fox owned-and-operated stations.

The Hollywood Reporter revealed that some aspects of Wendy’s show will be transferred to "Sherri":

Like The Wendy Williams Show, Shepherd’s program — titled Sherri — will be distributed by Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury. Wendy Williams showrunner David Perler will have the same position on Sherri, executive producing alongside Shepherd.

“Sherri is a natural who proved her hosting skills for many years as a panelist on The View, on Fox’s Dish Nation and again this season as a popular guest host of Wendy,” said Debmar-Mercury co-presidents Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein in a statement. “Like our viewers, we have been impressed by the unique comedic twist Sherri puts on our daily live ‘Hot Topics’ segment, her creativity and interactions with our guests. Her love for the content and daytime fans is obvious, and we are excited to partner with her to create another long-term talk franchise.”

Marcus and Bernstein added, “This is also a bitter-sweet moment for us and our partners at Fox. We all have a great love and affinity for Wendy, who grew into a true icon during her 12 incredible seasons as the solo host of a live, daily talk show dishing on ‘Hot Topics’ and interviewing celebrities. Since Wendy is still not available to host the show as she continues on her road to recovery, we believe it is best for our fans, stations and advertising partners to start making this transition now. We hope to be able to work with Wendy again in the future, and continue to wish her a speedy and full recovery.”

Interesting.

Wendy also issued a statement via her spokesperson, Howard Bragman.

“It’s been a challenging time for Wendy as she deals with her health issues. She is incredibly grateful to Debmar-Mercury, to Sherri and everybody else who has supported the show through this time,” Bragman said.

“She, more than anyone, understands the reality of syndicated television — you can’t go to the marketplace and sell a show that’s the Maybe Wendy Show. She understands why this decision was made from a business point of view, and she has been assured by Debmar-Mercury that should her health get to a point where she can host again and should her desire be that she hosts again that she would be back on TV at that time.”

Wendy started a new Instagram account of her own – separate from "The Wendy Show" account – last week, so it seems she knew this day was coming.  She posted a video saying she will be back to her show in New York soon, but fans are no longer sure that video is as new as she made it seem.

A Wendy return is possible though, but maybe on a different platform and with different production and distribution partners….and a different title.  

Either way, Wendy will forever be a tv & radio icon.  Here’s to secretly hoping she goes the podcast route to give us those throwback unfiltered radio vibes that put her on the map.  Whenever she’s ready, of course.

Congrats to Sherri on the new venture!

Fans Speculate If Wendy Williams’ Comeback Video On Her New IG Account Is A Throwback + Sources Say She’s NOT Coming Back To The Show

— YBF CHIC (@TheYBF) November 8, 2021

Rumors about her health started circulating like crazy with claims that she was suffering from early stages of dementia and that she was wheelchair bound. In November 2021, Wendy’s brother – Tommy Williams Jr.debunked the rumors and said she was fine.

Fast forward to now – Wendy is showing the world that she’s fine. However, not everyone is believing it.

Since the show likely has control of her old IG account, she popped up on social media with a new, verified Instagram account (@therealwendywilliamsonline).

In a 5-minute video, she is seen walking on the beach in Florida in a black hoodie and shorts as she answers questions asked by her only son, Kevin Hunter Jr.

In the clip, Wendy’s 21-year-old son asks her a series of questions to update her fans on what she has been up to. Check it:

“It’s just after 8 o’clock in the morning and I’m doing OK, you know?,” she said.

“How often do you come out here [Florida]?,” her son asked.

“Often,” she responded. “It’s very peaceful being here.”

“Excuse me, I am going back stronger. At 56 years old, there are things that happen to people. I would say things usually start about 40 and they go up from there, you know, so you’ve got to eat the right food," she said.

In the clip, fans quickly noticed how Wendy referred to being 56-years-old when she’s actually 57. They also noticed how she mentioned she goes to Florida because she has “real family … mother, father, sister, brother,” although her mother died in December 2020.

”So this is definitely an old video because she says she’s 56 and she’s 57 years old,” one fan wrote.

”Wendy is not 56 as she said she is 57. She mentioned her mom living near her but her mom passed away in Dec 2020. This was obviously recorded before Dec 2020 when her mom was still alive and she was 56,” someone wrote.

”I believe this is an old video,” a fan wrote.

”Something not right. She mentions she has a real family there her mother father brother and sister. Her mom passed away. Dony know how she ment that. Like she can visit her or its an old vid. Or even something else,” another fan responded.

In her defense, a Wendy fan reacted, “FOR ALL WHO’S WONDERING IF THIS IS A OLD VIDEO BECAUSE SHE MENTION HER MOM, THEN Y’ALL ARE NOT REAL WENDY WATCHERS!! WENDY HAS MADE IT CLEAR SHE WOULD NOT SPEAK OR THINK OF HER MOM IN THE PAST TENSE! SO DONT MAKE A BIG DEAL OUT OF SOMETHING THATS NOT THERE! JUST BE HAPPY SHE SPOKE TOO US”

We also noticed she said it’s “winter,” which is true.

As far as Wendy coming back to her purple chair to host her hit daytime TV show – it’s not looking bright.

A production insider spilled to TheYBF, “Wendy isn’t coming back after this season.”

They claim production will basically transition to have Sherri Shepherd as the permanent guest host” beginning in September. The production team has an option to sign new contracts to the new show.

That’s not all Wendy is dealing with.

Apparently there’s drama with Wells Fargo after they froze her accounts. According to Variety, Wells Fargo froze her accounts and requested a hearing for temporary guardianship where they referred to the popular daytime talk show host as an “incapacitated” person.

Wendy’s attorney LaShawn Thomas issued a statement on her behalf:

“On behalf of Wendy Hunter, professionally known as Wendy Williams, as counsel to her and her affairs, Wendy wants the world to know that she strenuously denies all allegations about her mental health and well-being. During this hiatus from the show, Wendy has employed holistic health professionals to help her reach optimal health during her treatment of Graves’ disease and thyroid concerns.”

“Wendy wants you to know she is fine; she is of sound mind and disappointed about falsely circulated statements from an industry she has devoted her life to. Wendy is grateful for the love and the outpouring of support she has received from her fans and she can’t want to get back. She thanks everyone who has been patiently awaiting her return and believes that, thanks in large part to the love and support of her son, her family, her new team of doctors and a change of scenery, she is on the mend. Wendy says to all her fans, ‘How you doing?’ So, please send her positive messages, energy, and affirmations to her social media that she can read daily.”

It’s reported that the mental health accusations stem from a “former employee who is upset because she no longer has direct and unfettered access to Wendy’s financial affairs.” 

According to the affidavit filed with the New York Supreme Court (obtained by Complex), the employee in question is her former financial advisor Lori Schiller.

“Wells Fargo’s priority is the financial well-being of Ms. Williams and the preservation of her privacy. As we have expressed to the Court, Wells Fargo is open to working with Ms. Williams’ counsel to release funds directly to her creditors for bills historically and regularly paid from her accounts,” a spokesperson for Wells Fargo said.

The last few years have been rough for daytime talk show host. 

Since 2019, she has been battling with her health, divorced her husband, Kevin Hunter Sr., after two decades when she learned he fathered a child with another woman, her mother’s death, and she has been struggling with staying sober.

As all that was going on, the COVID-19 pandemic hit, only making things worse. We hope things turn around for the legendary TV host soon!

REPORT: Wendy Williams Allegedly Got Drunk, Stripped Naked & Touched Herself In A Sexual Manner In Front Of Her Manager & Staff

Some disturbing details about Wendy Williams have surfaced, claiming the daytime host displayed very erratic behavior on the in-home set of her show. Sources said the 57-year-old TV host got super intoxicated, stripped naked and touched herself in a sexual manner in front of her manager and show staff.

Alleged details inside…

 

The last few years have been rough for daytime talk show host, Wendy Williams.

Since 2019, she has been battling with her health, divorced her husband, Kevin Hunter Sr., after two decades when she learned he fathered a child with another woman, her mother’s death, and she has been struggling with staying sober.

As all that was going on, the COVID-19 pandemic hit, only making things worse for the 57-year-old talk show host.

To keep a show afloat, Wendy began filming episodes via Zoom from her luxe $4.5 million NYC penthouse apartment. However, there was tons of drama going on behind the scenes, which sometimes spilled on-screen as fans noticed her behavior was becoming erratic. She would cry uncontrollably during episodes and more.

Sources tell The Sun the outspoken TV host had been heavily drinking ever since her 2019 stint in a New York sober house. You’ll recall, she shared she admitted herself into the home to help get a handle of herself following the split from her husband of 20+ years, Kevin Hunter Sr.

One day, things took a turn for the absolute worse!

In May 2020, Wendy’s team became concerned with her behavior, so they called her manager to come check on her. Soon after, Wendy’s manager and a few others came to the apartment and they found she was allegedly intoxicated.

Multiple sources say she stripped down naked in her room and began touching herself in a sexual manner while shouting vulgar comments as everyone looked on. After calling 911, it’s alleged Wendy became even more aggressive and belligerent.

Soon after, she was take to the hospital where she ended up staying for weeks. When it was announced Wendy had been hospitalized, the show released a statement claiming she had been admitted to the hospital due to complications of Graves’ disease. Producers put the show on pause, claiming she was taking a hiatus due to her health.

According to The Sun, the majority of people who witnessed what happened that day appear to have been cut out of Wendy’s life.  

“Wendy clearly does not want to associate with anybody who was there that day,” one source said.

“Everyone knows not to get too close to Wendy. It will backfire, and when it does, you’ll get burned,” a second source claimed.

Last week, Wendy’s 21-year-old son, Kevin Jr., shared video of her chilling in bed after her former co-worker Charlamagne Tha God shared throwback pics of his time on the Wendy Williams radio show along with Nicole Spence, who later accused Wendy and her husband Kevin Sr. of sexual harassment among other serious issues.

Thomas Williams Jr. – Wendy’s brother – denied the reports that said she was showing early signs of dementia and that she was confined to a wheelchair. There seems to be something going on though. 

Prayers up for Wendy Williams!

TABBAGE PATCH ACTIVATED: Wendy Williams’ IG Comments Are In Shambles After Tabitha Brown Clears Her For Shading Her Marriage

Daytime talk show host Wendy Williams shaded vegan influencer Tabitha Brown and Auntie Tab clapped back with an EPIC classy, southern read. Meanwhile, the Tabbage Patch is wreaking havoc in Wendy’s comments section with avocado emojis. More inside…

Listen, Tabitha Brown is NOT to be messed with, okay? Whatever opinions you have about her – keep them to yourself, honey. Because Auntie Tab will serve up the most classiest reads ever while clearing WHOMEVER out, including Wendy Williams.

So check it…

During her Hot Topics segment, Wendy Williams addressed Tabitha Brown’s announcement that she was reitiring her husband, Chance. In the clip, Tabitha shared Chance was a LAPD police officer for 15 years after they moved to the west coast from the east coast so Tab could follow her dreams as an actress.

“When my husband went on this journey, he really felt like he could make a difference and I know that he has in his community. He has done his part. But I also know it’s time for him to dream again,” Tabitha said in the video.

Peep her video below:

While some would see Tabitha’s post as something to celebrate, Wendy felt the exact opposite.

"Nope," Wendy said after playing a clip of Tabitha’s video.

The daytime talk show host went on to compare her failed marriage to Kevin Hunter Sr. – who was also her manager for decades – to Tabitha and Chance’s marriage. In so many words, Wendy said Tabitha’s marriage will not last with a man like Chance.

“I was married to one of those, ‘I make the money!’ and so on and so forth. ‘Go live your dreams! Open a business! Go, go, go!’ See how that turned out," Wendy said. "I predict that this marriage is going to be on real rocky ground in a moment."

The 56-year-old divorcee was super negative about Tab’s accomplishment and didn’t hold back how she really felt about it. Check it below:

Apples and oranges.

While it’s Wendy’s job to talk about pop culture and call it like she sees it, that doesn’t absolve her from getting cleared for it in return.

Once Auntie Tab caught wind of Wendy’s comments, she hopped on social media to respond. And listen, this woman served up a REGAL READ. Auntie Tab served up he classiest read we’ve ever witnessed and GATHERED Wendy for speaking on her marriage.

“People sent me a little clip, and I said, ‘Oh my God, the pain this woman must be in’ the pain you must be in to feel this way, and I’m so sorry,” Tab started the video. We knew at that very moment Tab was about to go in on Wendy and do it all in love.

It’s truly a superpower. Peep the clip above.

Needless to say, once Tab posted her response to Wendy, the Internet lost it:

 

Tabitha Brown said… I pray that someone will love you enough to see you when you are not well, when you need true support, compassion and kindness.

That’s the most beautiful, loving response to negativity ever. I aspire. Wow.

Wendy Williams Claims Da Brat Hit On Her & Da Brat Shut That Down + Wendy Catches Heat For Wishing ‘Death’ On Britney Spears’ Parents

Wendy Williams has been cutting up on her daytime talk show lately. Watch how Da Brat shut down Wendy when she dished the rapper tried to holla at her, plus the "death wish" she placed on Britney Spears‘ parents following her testimony to end her conservatorship.

Everything inside.

Wendy Williams has been extra opinionated lately, saying the first thing that comes to her mind on her daytime talk show. And now she’s in more drama. As you know, the 56-year-old talk show host loves to ask the burning questions other hosts wouldn’t normally ask. And she’s also one to spill tea she gathers amongst her celeb friends behind-the-scenes.

Case in point: Da Brat. The female rapper appeared (virtually) on Wendy’s show to promote her upcoming WEtv reality show, "Brat Loves Judy," which will center around Brat’s relationship with entrepreneur Jesseca “Judy” Dupart.  

During the "Hot Topics" segment (before the interview), Wendy suggested Da Brat hit on her in a text message.

“[She was] like, ‘So whatchu doin’?’ I’m like, ‘Da Brat, I’m minding my own business," Wendy said during her "Hot Topics" segment. "’What do you mean?’ ‘Is you alone?’ Oh she tried it. Oh please! I said, ‘Look here, Brat, we are friends. Like, I’m a girl who’s your friend, that’s it.’”

When the sitdown with Brat started, Wendy asked her if she heard what she said about her during "Hot Topics." Oh, Da Brat heard what she said and she had plenty to say in response.

“The last time we talked and I texted you, it was after I saw your documentary [LIFETIME biopic "Wendy Williams: The Movie"], and I felt like you ain’t got no real friends and I wanted to be your friend, so I called to check on you,” Da Brat said.

"No, you said more than that," Wendy chimed in.

“I love you but I ain’t never been attracted to you, girl," Brat responded. "Naw girl. You better check your phone because I got the same receipts," Da Brat responded. "I mean I love you, but I ain’t never been attracted to you girl."

"Well okay, if I was gay would you like me?," Wendy asked.

"Nope," Brat said while shaking her head "No."

Brat said she’s fly, but Wendy is NOT for her. She also said she already has her "forever" already and she would never disrespect her like that.

Later, Wendy mentioned her constant speculation over Da Brat’s sexuality was useful in her process of "coming out."

“Girl, you were never part of my process, not until I was ready to reveal anything did anybody know anything, and when I did it, that’s when I let the world know,” Da Brat replied. “Back in the day it wasn’t cool. You couldn’t do that. Ellen [DeGeneres] lost her job, her show. Back in the day you could not do that, but thank God it’s different now. And I get to live out loud and live in my truth.”

Peep their banter below:

Da Brat’s fiancee Judy shared the clip on her Instagram page with the caption, "Nah WENDY GIRL"

Before Wendy’s interview with Da Brat…

During her "Hot Topics" segment a day before, Wendy talked about Britney Spears‘ day in court to fight over her conservatorship. Britney told a LA Superior Court judge that her conservators – including her father Jamie Spears – forced her into rehab, forced her to take lithium and blocked her from removing an IUD.

"How dare you, Mr. Spears. You had me fooled. And you too, Mrs. Spears," Wendy said while talking about Britney’s testimony. "Death to all of them," she continued, which promoted gasps from the audience. The part where Wendy says "death to all of them" has been edited out of the full episode on the official "Wendy Williams Show" YouTube account (above). However, the clip is still on social media. Check it out below:

Drake Had Words For Refs At Bronny James’ Game With LeBron James + Watch Lamar Odom Knock Out Aaron Carter In Celebrity Boxing Match

LeBron James pulled up to his son Bronny James‘ basketball game with Drake and the Young Money rapper was seen giving the refs a piece of his mind. Peep the clip, plus watch Lamar Odom knock out Aaron Carter in a celebrity boxing match inside…

A high shool basketball playoff game turned into a star-studded affair when several celebs made an appearance in a highschool gym.

NBA star LeBron James and rapper Drake pulled up to Sierra Canyon School in LA to watch LeBron’s son, Bronny James, hoop it up against Corona Centennial during the CIF Southern Sectional Finals. For the first time in 14 seasons, LeBron didn’t make it to the second round of the NBA playoffs, so he has some extra time on his hands.

It was Bronny’s first game since being sidelined in February after undergoing knee surgery. Several notable people came out to watch the sophomore – who’s featured on the newest issue of Sports Illustrated – first game since his injury, including his dad, Drake, along with NBA stars JR Smith and Jared Dudley.

Centennial came out strong against Sierra Canyon, which only amped up King James and Champagne Papi on the sidelines. At one point, Drake is seen having a few words with a referee during a timeout in the fourth quarter as his music played in the background.

Sierra Canyon tried their best, but the Centennial’s sharpshooting helped them rack up points, which resulted in a loss for Bronny & Sierra Canyon.

It was a tough loss for the team. However, the players received good advice from NBA royalty and one of the hottest rappers in the game.

“Drake came up to me afterward and he just said, ‘Do you know how many L’s I’ve taken in my life to get to where I am? Keep your head up.’ And Bron just reminded me that he lost the Finals on his home court and came back and won a championship the next year,” Bailey said.

“I’m definitely going to remember this game and use it as motivation next season. We’ll be back,” Bailey said.

Sweet!

By the way, Drizzy brought his son, Adonis, to soak in the basketball fun:

Last night, former NBA player Lamar Odom knocked out pop star Aaron Carter during their celebrity boxing match held at Showboat Hotel in Atlantic City. Both Lamar and Aaron made their boxing debuts in the match. However, Aaron may think twice about entering the ring with Lamar again.

With UFC Hall of Famer Chuck Liddell as the referee, Lamar (6’10") and Aaron (6’0") lasted two rounds before LO easily knocked him out. In fact, Lamar knocked him down once in the first round and again in the second round.

Nicki Minaj & Wendy Williams … SQUASH Their Beef & MAKE UP?!

It appears Nicki Minaj and Wendy Williams have squashed their ongoing “beef” and we’ve got receipts. Check it out inside…

It’s no secret Wendy Williams isn’t (or wasn’t) a fan of Nicki Minaj.

When news hit that Nicki Minaj married her childhood sweetheart Kenneth Petty (an ex-con with a long rap sheet), daytime talk show host Wendy Williams didn’t mince her words criticizing her situation and that launched a shady match between the ladies.

While Wendy isn’t fond of Nicki’s dating choices, she recently made sure to give her props when they were due. Last week, the “Seeing Green” rapper re-released her 2009 mixtape, Beam Me Up Scotty, on the project’s 12th anniversary. The project featured new music that features her Young Money family, Drake and Lil Wayne.

On “The Wendy Williams Show,” the 56-year-old daytime TV host dedicated a segment to Nicki’s new music and she gave her props as a “legend” and an “Icon.” Oh?

“Nicki, to me, is definitely an icon and definitely a legend,” said Wendy. “She’s done things that these young girls haven’t even touched, even though they have hit music, but Nicki is different than the rest. She’s done things that these young girls haven’t even touched, even though they have hit music, but Nicki is different than the rest.”

Peep the short clip below:

The daytime talk show host didn’t go overboard with the praise, but the Barbz picked up on the Nicki praise and made it trend on social media:

@WendyWilliams called @NICKIMINAJ an Icon and a Legend today. The culture is absolutely healing itself pretty wild.

Once Nicki took a break they realize the impact

— Redz Lewinsky (@lowkey02803888) May 17, 2021

 

 

Thank you @WendyWilliams for saying @NICKIMINAJ is an icon and a legend! She stands above them all! She can’t be touched!!

— QueenMrs (@TheQueenMrs) May 17, 2021

 

The QUEEN raptress caught wind of Wendy’s comments and responded:

”You are an icon & legend as well @wendyshow,” Nicki Minaj wrote in the comments of a fan account that posted the clip.

Well look at that. We’re here for the ladies ending their ongoing feud.

You’ll recall, Nicki & Wendy were involved in a nasty spat that played out on social media and on daytime television. You can catch up HERE

Speaking of Nicki and criminal acts…

The “Starships” raptress recently did a post and delete of her 2003 mugshot to note the growth in her life.

“It took me years to b able to look at things like this,” Nicki wrote in the caption before deleting the post. “Criminal possession of a weapon with intent to use. I did use it tho. This is so inspiring now looking back,” she added. “The girl was leaking blood and spent days in the hospital. The word on the street was that I was gonna b deported. I was so scared. Lol. I was ‘on the run’. I rlly thought I was in a ghetto movie. I hid my car and went to stay wit my Aunt in Brooklyn chile. Bwahahaaaaa. #Growth.”

Also…

The new mom shared a new flick of her & Kenneth’s 8-month-old son, whom she affectionately calls Papa Bear. He was captured in a behind-the-scenes video to promote her new song with Lil Wayne & Drake titled, Seeing Green. Dressed in a Burberry down onesie, the stylish baby was seen on a private jet with his mother. In another flick, Nicki’s hubby is holding Papa Bear while they pose for their first Christmas portrait. The Head Barb said fans probably won’t be getting any new flicks soon, so enjoy.

Wendy Williams Shades The Hell Out Of Ellen DeGeneres Over Ending 19-Year TV Show

Wendy Williams didn’t mince her words while covering fellow daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres announcement that she’s ending her show after 19 seasons. Catch her shade inside…

Leave it to Wendy Williams to say what’s really on people’s minds.

It sounds like the daytime talk show host has the inside scoop on what it’s REALLY like behind-the-scenes at "The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”

Back in August, celebs like Kevin Hart and Tyrese hopped on social media to defend Ellen after she was accused by former and current employees of creating a “toxic work environment,” which has launched a storm of controversy.

Sitting in front of her audience comprised of her staff, Wendy kicked off her Hot Topics segment with the story about Ellen ending her daytime talk show after its 19th season. In Ellen’s farewell message, she mentioned being on television for almost two decades changed her life.

The controversial talk show said being on TV 19 years “doesn’t change your life, it exposes you for the person that you really are.”

OOP!

Wendy played clips of Ellen speaking to Savannah Gutherie about the allegations made against her. She said she felt the controversy was “too orchestrated” and that she wished someone would have came to her and alerted her about what was going on.

”All I’ve ever heard from every guest that comes on the show is what a happy atmosphere this is,” Ellen said.

”I’m not sure that all the guests are happy. I was a guest. I wasn’t happy,” Wendy said after airing Ellen’s clip.

Although Ellen said she knew the show’s 19th season would be her last, Wendy isn’t buying it.

”I believe she’s leaving because of the workplace conditions, you know, I mean, we all in this room know people who’ve worked at the mm-hmm, mm-hmm, and people who’ve worked here themsel- mm-hmm, mm-hmm,” she said.

”I don’t know whether she told her current staff, though,” she continued. “She seems like the type of person that would come out onstage and announce it to everybody and people are looking at the TV as she’s saying it like: ‘Wai-wha-wait, what just happened?’"

Peep the clip below (starting at the 2-minute mark):

One current and several former employees of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” anonymously came forward to expose what’s been going down on the set of the “ELLEN” show. The individuals spoke to Buzzfeed News on the condition of anonymity out of fear of retribution.

The former employees made claims that they were subjected to favoritism by executive producers, faced microaggressions and were fired after taking medical leave or bereavement days. One former employee – a black woman – said she experienced racist comments from senior level producers. Another former employee said after taking a one-month medical leave following a suicide attempt, they returned to work and were told their position was being eliminated.

Hmph.

 "I had placed all work-related tasks aside to get to know her on a personal level, no angles or hidden agendas," he said. "I can only wish her the best as we both continue the search at our own paces and remain friends in the process."

He added that he "enjoyed our times together and felt great to be able to make her laugh."

The split was amicable and there isn’t any bad blood between them:

"She’s allowed to meet others," he insisted. "We’re not in that type of relationship. She will find someone."

At the end of February, Wendy and Mike first met during a dating game on her daytime talk show. TV personality Mario Lopez suggested he should play and he won.

No surprise here. Wendy def has a type and he wasn’t it. Back to the streets…

NAILED IT! Wendy Williams Unveils ‘Twin’ Madame Tussauds Wax Figure

Wendy Williams unveiled her Madame Tussauds wax figure on her daytime talk show and it’s SPOT ON! Check it out inside…

 

Listen, when it comes to Madame Tussauds museum capturing the likeness of celebs in their wax figures…they’re usually a HIT (Zendaya) or MISS (i.e. Beyonce, Nicki Minaj). Mostly misses. However, they finally nailed one.

Daytime talk show host Wendy Williams just copped her own wax figure and it’s SPOT ON. Like, it’s insanely good. The 56-year-old daytime talk show host unveiled her wax figure on her talk show. However, it wasn’t an easy task to get her there. 

After 20 artists put in over 800 hours to make the wax figure, Wendy Williams’ wax twin traveled over 3,000 miles across the Atlantic on a cargo ship to appear on Wendy’s NYC set.

It took the artists over 5 weeks to fix her hair where strands of human hair were inserted individually. The wax figure is rocking one of Wendy’s outfits from her closet (a Diane von Furstenberg jumpsuit & Gucci sneakers), her signature "W" necklace, and a Frank Muller watch set at 10AM – the time ther talk show stars.

Bringing Wendy to life via wax took long hours and tons of work.  The museum’s artists took 200 measurements and photographs from every angle to capture her likeness…even down to the spacing between her eyebrows. Wendy and Madama Tussauds have been working together for over a year to create an interactive experience for her fans at the Times Square destination.

Now, fans can get up close and personal for a chance to say “How You Doin’” with their fave daytime talk show host.

XSCAPE vs. SWV’s VERZUZ Recap: Why Coko Almost Didn’t Make It + Wendy Williams’ Ex-Husband All Up In The Mix

Two of your fave 90s girl groups went head-to-head during the Mother’s Day VERZUZ Battle edition. However, it was more of a R&B love fest that had everyone singing their hearts out. More inside…

Mother’s Day 2021 was celebrated with another round of R&B female star power following Erykah Badu vs. Jill Scott’s inaugural Mother’s Day VERZUZ Battle last year.

This year, R&B fans were treated to a battle between 90s R&B girl groups XSCAPE (Kandi Burruss, Tameka "Tiny" Cottle, LaTocha Scott, Tamera Coggins-Wynn, and Tamika Scott) and SWV (Cheryl "Coko" Gamble, Tamara "Taj" Johnson and Leanne "Lelee" Lyons), which went down in Atlanta. Both groups hit the stage together for a celebration of their greatest hits.

Backed by DJ AONE (who made sure to bring the energy) and DJ Spinderella (former of Salt-N-Pepa), the two powerhouse singing groups went up against one another, although it wasn’t a battle at all and more so a celebration of #BlackGirlMagic…R&B style.

While the ladies certainly put on a show as they performed some of their throwback hits, fans noticed something was off with SWV singer Coko. After the VERZUZ battle wrapped up, she explained she witnessed a woman being shot outside of her hotel room just moments before the battle. The traumatic experience caused her to have a panic attack, but her son was there to help calm her down and she was able to hit the stage with her bandmates. She almost skipped out on the battle.

“Last night as I’m preparing for Verzuz, a lady was shot outside my hotel window,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “To see & hear the four shots, see her laying on the ground and all the blood was unbelievable!!”

She continued, “Thennnn…I get to the venue and had a really bad anxiety attack! Literally crying & screaming. Yeah y’all saw me looking uncomfortable & irritated during the first half but, if it wasn’t for my son @jayyemichael @ynottamiya & @mrljb I probably wouldn’t have been out there at all. Thank you for calming me down & understanding my mental. I love y’all to the fullest!! I always say most won’t care to understand but when you get those that do cherish them!!”

Lordt! Just goes to show people should start practicing the art of not judging people. You never know what someone is going through and dealing with.

Wendy Williams’ ex-husband Kevin Hunter (aka Kelvin Hunter) was all in the mix behind-the-scenes before the VERZUZ Battle began.

“I’m sooo grateful to have the opportunity to share this MOMENT with these ICONIC QUEENS @officialxscape and be here for this HISTORICAL event!!,” Wendy’s ex wrote. “HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!!! @officialswv #versuz #trilla #versuzbattle @therealtamikascott @majorgirl @kandi @iamlatocha”

It seems Kevin and XSCAPE’s Tamika Scott have a business relationship. In October 2020, he told Authority magazine that his publishing company (Head Hunter Publishing) will be releasing Tamika Scott’s cookbook, “Cooking With Tamika Scott.”

OH? Wendy Williams Is Having Too Much Fun With Her Vanilla BAE-Of-The-Month, Mario Lopez Hooked Them Up

Vanilla is the flavor of the month for Wendy Williams. The daytime TV host has been zippin it and zoin’ it with her new friend, Mike. Turns out, TV personality Mario Lopez played matchmaker. More inside…

HOW YOU DOIN’?! We’d imagine Wendy Williams would answer: REAL GOOD.

Wendy Williams is out in these streets, okay? Since filing for divorce from her husband of over two decades, the 56-year-old daytime talk show has been out here living her best life. No, seriously. Sis has been stepping out on dates with a few men since she called it quits with Kevin Hunter Sr. And we love to see a single woman explore her options.

Last week, Wendy matched with professional talent agent Mike Esterman during a dating game on her daytime talk show. Turns out, TV personality Mario Lopez suggested he should play and BOOM! Love connection. Well, maybe.

Wendy and Mike must be hitting off. The mom-of-one shared a flick of herself and Mike in the back of a car and she leaned in on his face.

"Mike & I are having fun!! I’m glad he’s a REAL gentleman,” she captioned the pic on Instagram. Then, she seemingly referenced an inside joke:

"But @RandyJackson, @birdman & @MarioLopez have tried to block my collards, fried chicken, shrimps, yams, beans, soul roll, Mac & cheese, fish, rice, oxtail & my #carrotcake! We WILL discuss once I gather myself."

We’re not exactly sure what she meant by this.

Wendy & Mike are going through the motions of the beginning stages of dating. She dished on how she’s planning to handle her lymphedema while she’s dating him.

"You know when I do go out with Mike, and that’s going to be happening. Just follow me on the gram… Here’s my thing about the lymphedema,” she said at the 3:50-minute mark.

"I just want to wait until he really likes me before I show him [Mike] the rest of the story cause I don’t wear socks in the house, and I don’t sleep with socks. But he needs to understand if he rubs up against my feet, they’re not tender. They don’t hurt. But they’re rough. And there’s nothing you can do about it. It’s just a manageable disease. It’s not curable."

Guess we’ll just have to keep watching to catch when she spills ALL the Mike the tea on her show. We’ll keep you posted.

Did Nicki Minaj & Convicted Sex Offender Kenneth Petty Try To Use Money & Intimidation To Silence Rape Victim? Here’s Her Story.

The woman who accused Nicki Minaj’s husband Kenneth “Zoo” Petty of rape is speaking out. And she claims Nicki and people on her team have been doing the most behind-the-scenes to try and silence her. We’re talking threats against her life and even financial payments to keep quiet. Read her story inside…

Ever since the public learned about Nicki Minaj’s relationship with a childhood friend, there’s been nothing but controversy, rumors and accusations surrounding the man in her life. Once the Head Barb revealed Kenneth “Zoo” Petty has her main man, folks were quick to dig up info on him and it didn’t take long for the world to find out rape allegations made against him.

Folks dragged Nicki for hopping in a relationship and then eventually marrying a man who was previously charged with rape and manslaughter. Daytime talk show host Wendy Williams said Nicki was ruining her brand with her coupledom situation with Petty.

The NYC rapper is her man’s ride-or-die. After tying the knot in 2019, she used her Queen Radio platform to respond to people criticizing her relationship with a convicted sex offender, defending her decision while adding she must stay “prayed up” so she can continue to “cover her husband in prayer.”

Well, Kenneth’s accuser – who’s only going by her first name Jennifer – is now speaking out about some recent foolery that allegedly has been going on behind-the-scenes at the hands of Nicki and her camp. In an exposé by the Daily Beast, Jennifer claims Nicki and people from her camp have used severe intimidation and bribery to get her to recant her story.

First, a little back story…

In April 1995, Petty was convicted of attempted first-degree rape for a 1994 assault that occurred when both he and the victim were 16. Jennifer said she walking to school when Petty came up behind her, pressed an object to her back and instructed her to “keep walking.” They ended up at Petty’s residence and she said he allegedly forced her upstairs and began to rape her at knifepoint. She was able to strike him with a bottle, escape, and immediately reported the incident.

Both Nicki & Kenneth – who welcomed a son last September – both deny the incident ever happened and claim the two were actually a couple.  Jennifer says that’s completely untrue.

In 2020, Jennifer said she was being harassed by Nicki’s associates to recant her story.

“I’m hoping for the truth to come out, and whatever comes from that truth, to let it be,” Jennifer said. For a while, she’d tried to avoid implicating other people. But now, “after everything that has happened, it’s like, these people were willing to sacrifice me so this guy could remain in the public eye,” she said. “I feel like my family was willing to sacrifice me.”

The Daily Beast reports:

She says she never submitted a letter recanting—but alleges that associates of Minaj and Petty’s spent months last year harassing her to do so, going so far as to offer hundreds of thousands of dollars on their behalf. At one point, Jennifer says, she also spoke with Minaj herself. (Minaj and Petty did not respond to requests for comment.)

Jennifer moved three times in 2020 out of fear for her safety—the final time out of state, separating her from her 22-year-old daughter. And since she’s come forward, a section of the gossip blogosphere has also exploded, as Minaj stans and even some estranged family members attempt to discredit her claims.

The state of California dismissed its case against Petty for failing to register as a sex offender last year in light of similar federal charges, for which Petty faces trial in June. In an interview with The Daily Beast, Jennifer described the “mindfuck” that began last March, when Petty’s arrest in California prompted a web of family members and neighbors to contact her on his and Minaj’s behalf.

Jennifer also said she’s been in contact with U.S. Marshals, who recently told her that an investigation of the Pettys is underway and that they’ve found evidence. A source familiar with the conversation confirmed this, and said that the authorities called the investigation a “high-priority case.”

Below is a clip of an interview Jennifer did with blogger NoseyHeauxLive, who has been advocating for her on Jennifer’s behalf.

In the article, Jennifer revealed her adoptive mother blamed her for the rape incident:

Jennifer said, she was simply told, “Sorry you got raped, but you should have screamed.”

At that point it was as if NO ONE believed her:

Petty’s parents, Jennifer added, responded to his arrest by telling her adoptive family that the two had been dating. (She is adamant they were not.)

“My family allowed his mother and father to take me to go see a district attorney and pretend like [they were] my aunt and uncle,” she told The Daily Beast. “I think I kind of always just felt like people wanted me to be a liar.”

Jennifer insists she never wrote a letter recanting any part of her account. But in the months that followed Petty’s arrest, his friends allegedly harassed her family so severely that her adoptive aunt—the older daughter of the woman who raised her—brought her to the courthouse to drop the charges against Petty. Jennifer didn’t drop the charges; overwhelmed, she moved to Florida as the case proceeded. (Jennifer’s family members—and Barry—did not respond to requests for comment for this story.)

In November 2020, Jennifer detailed the circumstances of the assault after Nicki’s friend, TT, discredited her story in a YouTube video, telling her, “You need to cut it out. You really need to before you get yourself hurt out here, homegirl.”

Below is the video Jennifer posted in response:

Since the attempted rape conviction, Petty received more criminal charges in separate incidents:

Petty was convicted in 1995 of one count of attempted rape in the first degree, assault in the second degree, unlawful imprisonment in the second degree, and criminal possession of a weapon. In 2006, he pleaded guilty to manslaughter—a reduction from the original charge, murder in the second degree, after a plea bargain—in the shooting death of Lamont Robinson, whom the original complaint alleges Petty shot multiple times. Petty served seven years of his 10-year sentence before his release in 2013, after which People reports he was on supervised release for five years.

Last March, Petty was arrested and faced state charges for failing to register as a sex offender in California. That’s when the harassment began for Jennifer.

Four days after Petty’s arrest last March, a man named Barry, who Jennifer remembered had been close with her brother when they were all school-aged, reached out to her. Jennifer didn’t think much of it at first when Barry mentioned Minaj and Petty, or even when he offered to make the fuss around the court case “go away.” (The Blast had just published the criminal complaint months before.)

But then Barry allegedly told Jennifer that Minaj wanted to speak with her.

Even as she agreed to share her phone number, Jennifer didn’t believe what was happening. “Next thing you know, my phone rings, and it’s her.”

As Jennifer recounts, Minaj told her she’d heard she was willing to help them out—“and if there’s anything you need…” The rapper allegedly offered to fly Jennifer to Los Angeles, or to fly her publicist out to Atlanta.

Barry tried to convince her to take $200,000 in cash and she was also offered $500,000 from people she believes are connected to The Pettys.

“I came outside and sat in the car, and he pulled out the letter and the $20,000 out of his middle console and put the money on my lap,” Jennifer said. “And I held it in my hands, and I put it on the floor in the passenger seat. And I told him, ‘I’m not taking it. I don’t want it.’”

Jennifer said she actually spoke to Nicki and the couple seemingly wanted to discuss an “agreement” where both parties would vow not to speak on one another.

It seemed at first like the Pettys wanted to discuss some kind of non-disclosure agreement, Jennifer said—some kind of pact in which they’d vow not to speak about her publicly and she’d do the same. At the same time, she recalls telling Minaj, “Listen. I just need you to know, woman to woman, this really happened.”

Minaj allegedly told Jennifer that she wanted her to have her number, but the two never spoke again. (The number has since been disconnected.)

Instead, Jennifer said her brother, with whom she is not particularly close, called within days of her conversation with Minaj to tell her that a man named Jamie from New York had called their cousin in North Carolina, offering $500,000 if Jennifer spoke with a lawyer representing Petty. She never called the lawyer.

Jennifer also shared an scary interaction her daughter, Kenya, experienced when an unidentified man approached her and started naming her family members before asking if she knew Nicki & Kenneth:

The last time Jennifer moved was in October—after an older man approached her 22-year-old daughter, Kenya, in a club. In her Facebook video, Kenya says the man insisted she looked familiar and listed off her relatives after she shared that she was from South Jamaica, Queens. (“He named my mother,” she said. “He named all her fucking brothers.”) Then he asked if she knew Kenneth Petty.

“It was scary, and it made me feel threatened,” Kenya said.

Jennifer had been out of town, and when she returned she decided that as long as she and Kenya lived in the same city, her daughter would never be able to safely lead a normal life. She left the state with her 5-year-old daughter.

With everything going on, Jennifer has hired law firm Kaedian LLP, who reviewed the documents.

The state charges against Petty were dropped. However, the federal case that charges Petty for not registering as a sex offender in Cali is scheduled to go to trial in June.

We’re glad she has lawyered up and we hope she considers other alternative to keep herself safe because if Petty goes to jail, Nicki and her people will likely blame her for it and that’s dangerous for her. She encouraged other women who have been through similar situations to speak up to stop the cycle:

“For people out in the world to know that you can’t do stuff like this and get away with it. And for women who have been abused, for women who have been assaulted, for them to not live in fear of speaking their truth. No matter who the person is.”

K. Michelle Takes The High Road After Wendy Williams Makes Comment About K’s Butt Leaking On Idris Elba’s Sheets

K. Michelle went viral this week when a video of her dancing when viral. Daytime talk show host Wendy Williams brought it up during her show and alleged K’s butt injections “leaked” on Idris Elba’s bed sheets. What could have turned into a public feud was shut down by the singer. More inside….

K. Michelle no longer has any interest in feuding with another Black woman.

This week, singer K. Michelle found herself trending on social media after a clip of from her IG Live started circulating. In the viral clip, something weird happens with K’s butt area while she was dancing it, causing folks to crack jokes that her “butt busted” on camera. Their words, not ours.

Peep the clip below:

Over the last few years, the soon-to-be Country singer has been very vocal and transparent about her plastic surgery journey where she has endured several surgeries in order to remove the silicone from her butt injections.

During her Hot Topics segment, Wendy Williams brought up “butt-gate” and alleged K’s butt injections leaked on Idris Elba’s sheets back when they were rumored to be dating.

"Because I guess it took a little while for them to squish down and she said, ‘Oh my gosh, what is this on my underwear? What is this gooey’—I don’t know that’s what she said but I can only imagine the tragedy of the situation,” Wendy said on the show. “Leaving silicone on Idris Elba’s sheets. I love that story, that they were romantical at one point."

Peep the clip below:

The former “Love & Hip Hop” star got wind of Wendy’s comments and addressed the drama on her Instagram account. Instead of clapping back at Wendy, she decided to spare her and take the high road.

The “Can’t Raise A Man” singer said she’s a changed woman and that she’s now using her platform to help other women who are struggling through the same health issues as herself. She said she has a surgery coming up, which is hopefully her last, to finish the reconstruction on her butt.

"If your going to report the story report the whole thing blogs. She also said this. You needed a story that bad huh? You couldn’t post this part the positive side,” K said in reference to a clip of Wendy praising her.

”We feel that people are secretly very jealous of K. Michelle, and they’re bored with their own lives. And you’re mad because she sings, and you’re mad because she yodels. And you’re mad because this coming summer, her country album is coming out. You’re mad!,” Wendy said.

Now, we’re not all the way convinced Wendy wasn’t being shady here, but K seems to think it was something positive, so we’ll go with that.

"I will not be going off on another black woman I no longer get paid to do that. She cracked her jokes like much of you and said what she said,” K continued. "I’m on my journey. Media I know you have to do your job, but people are dying just don’t make it so hard. See you soon Wendy,” she concluded.

Method Man’s Wife Calls Wendy Williams A ‘Miserable B*tch’ After One-Night Stand Tea Is Spilled + Eric B Reacts To Biopic

Tamika SmithMethod Man’s wife – had to get a few things off of her chest after Wendy Williams revealed she had a one-night stand with the Wu-Tang rapper back in the day. Read her rant inside…

Tamika Smith – Method Man’s wife – has some words for Wendy Williams.

Before the premiere of her LIFETIME biopic, Wendy Williams revealed she had a one-night stand with rapper-turned-actor Method Man back in the day. She said the bedroom magic happened back during her “coke days” when she was abusing drugs on a daily.

Apparently, Wendy & Meth linked up at a club and began smoking marijuana together. A fight broke out in the club, so they left and ended up back at Wendy’s penthouse in Jersey City. They continued to smoke, Wendy gave him a bubble bath in her jacuzzi tub and they got it in. Allegedly.

Now, Wendy spilled this tea last Friday, a day before her biopic was set to premiere. We’re not sure if Method Man’s wife watched the biopic or not, but she surely caught wind of the headlines about her husband’s one-night affair with the daytime talk show host. By the way, Wendy & Method Man’s hook up was BEFORE the Wu-Tang rapped got married to Tamika (in 2001).

In a statement posted to her Instagram Stories, Tamika said she was tired of keeping silent while “Wendy Williams launched constant verbal attacks against my husband, myself, and my family.” In the past, she ignored Wendy’s “lies, innuendos and blatant attempts to provoke” them, but she’s OVER being the “bigger person.”

Tamika talked about how she kept quiet when Wendy revealed to her listeners she had been diagnosed with cancer. At the time, Tamika only told a select few people about her diagnosis.

“When I was diagnosed with cancer years ago, Wendy shared my personal medical information with her listeners live on the sir during her radio broadcast. She didn’t care that she was violating my right to privacy, or that I hadn’t shared the news of my diagnosis with my family and friends yet. She never apologized, never expressed any regret whatsoever,” she said.

Now, we agree that she should be upset with the former radio host for sharing her personal information, but it makes you wonder – if Tamika only told a select amount of people, it’s very possible Method Man could have been the person who actually TOLD Wendy in the first place. Just sayin’…

Tamika said Wendy is OBSESSED with her family and suffers from “self-hate” and “low self-esteem.”

”Over the years those issues have made her increasingly ugly, both inside and out. And no amount of plastic surgery can fix the ugliness inside of her,” she said. “There’s no limit to how low she will go in the name of making headlines.”

Method Man’s wife said the reason she’s attacking her husband and marriage is due to the fact that Wendy’s career is on “life support” and her personal life is in shambles, so she’s clout chasing to remain relevant.

“How sad that a woman who was once revered in the entertainment industry has reduced herself to a tabloid sidenote and circus freak,” she said. “Wendy will forever be one of the most miserable b*tches on the planet.”

Tell us how you really feel.

A post shared by Eric B – Hip Hop Legend (@therealdjericb)

 

In the biopic, Wendy shared she was involved in a whirlwind situationship with rapper Eric B. – 1/2 of the rap group Eric B. & Rakim. Their romance took quite a few turbulent turns like when Eric B ruined her credit score, stole her rental car, and allegedly got her pregnancy. In the movie, Wendy underwent an abortion after she found out she was pregnant with his baby.

The NYC rapper hopped on Instagram to react, sharing a throwback picture of himself standing next to a car with his name on the license plate.

"To hilarious I laughed to well it made for great Tv But the truth is something different Try that !!!!!!!," he wrote.

Speaking of reactions, below are some from Twitter:

Wendy Williams Trolled After She Reveals She Had A One-Night Stand With Method Man During Her ‘Coke Days’

Wendy Williams is spilling some personal tea before the premiere of her biopic. Apparently, the daytime talk show host got it IN with rapper Method Man back in the day. Oh? Viewers will not see the hookup in her upcoming LIFETIME biopic and she explains why inside…

Wendy Williams has been cutting up in the days leading up to the premiere of her LIFETIME biopic, Wendy Williams: The Movie. And she’s continuing to stir the pot.

While hot on the promo trail for her new film, the outspoken daytime talk show host revealed rapper Method Man stretched her out in the bedroom “back in the coke days,” referencing a time in her life when she was heavily using drugs in the 90s.

”I was an eight ball girl by myself,” the 56-year-old daytime talk show host said during an interview with DJ Suss One. “I smoked a blunt with Redman – excuse me – with Method Man while I gave him a bath and it was a one-night stand.”

Come again, Wendy? She kept confusing Method Man for Redman, but to set the record straight, yes she was talking about Wu-Tang rapper Method Man, whom she dubbed “the leader of the biggest group in the world.” Sounds like sis was star stuck back then.

The TV personality said she met the NYC rapper at a club when he approached her.

"I smelled the weed and I had weed but he had better … He rolled a blunt, we smoked a blunt, we watched the fight, we heard the gunshots, the cops came in. … I guess I batted my eyes and rocked my shoulders and I said, ‘You wanna come over?’ And he said, ‘Yeah, I’ll follow you.’”

“He’ll deny it. Maybe not,” she continued.

After the club, they were able to sneak out without anyone noticing them. They went back to Wendy’s Jersey City penthouse where Wendy gave him a bath in her jacuzzi. When DJ Suss One asked if they went all the way, she replied, “Yes!”

“That was back in the coke days,” she continued, “I don’t remember what he did, I’m not gonna implicate him on that.”

You would think tea this HOT would go in her upcoming biopic, but nope.

DJ Suss One noted her alleged one-night stand wasn’t included in the biopic (he saw the screener).

”It’s wasn’t in the movie because Redman, uh excuse me, Method Man is still very angry at me,” Wendy responded.

She didn’t specify why, but it’s likely due to her speaking out on their past bedroom antics. Allegedly.

We’re not sure if this is the sole reason why Method Man is upset with her because she’s just spilling this one-night stand tea. In the early 2000s, there was bad blood between Wendy and Method Man because she revealed his wife – Tamika Smith – had cancer. Apparently, she was keeping the diagnosis a secret from her family.

Chile….who knew?! By the way, this alleged sexcapade went down before Wendy married her ex-husband, Kevin Hunter Sr.

Watch Wendy dish on her sex life in the 90’s (starting at the 26-minute mark) below:

 

Once Wendy and Method Man started trending on Twitter, IG troll 50 Cent entered the chat:

Wendy Williams Directly Calls Out Ex-Husband’s Baby Mother While Promoting Upcoming Biopic + Sneak Peek At Wendy’s ‘Breast Implants’ Scene

Wendy Williams calls out her ex-husband, Kevin Hunter Sr.’s. mistress, Sharina Hudson, during her Hot Topics segment recently while dishing on her upcoming biopic. Also, we’ve got a few sneak peeks at the biopic, including when she got her breast implants, inside…

After Wendy Williams became a Hot Topic on her own show, the daytime diva usually drops subtle hints about her uncoupling from her ex-husband of 21-years, Kevin Hunter Sr. Especially when it came to deets about his alleged longtime mistress, Sharina Hudson. As far as we remember, we’re not sure she’s ever mentioned her ex’s alleged mistress by name ….until now.

During a recent episode of the “Wendy Show,” the 56-year-old outspoke TV personality called out her ex-husband’s alleged mistress. As you know, Kevin cheated on Wendy with Sharina and they have a daughter together, which flipped Wendy’s world upside down. She pulled the trigger on their divorce and the papers were finalized last year.

“I can’t believe how fearless I am,” she said. “And I can’t believe how many people have been drawn into my situation over the 12 years that I’ve been here entertaining you on television. Welcome to ‘Hot Topics’, Sharina Hudson… Getting out of my car, with my money,” she continued, referencing paparaazi pictures of Sharina.

Wendy also spilled tea on Kevin’s daughter’s name and age:

“Good morning, Journey. I think she’ll be three next month, don’t ya know. Good morning, Kelvin. It’s my truth.”

Oop. "Kelvin" must be an inside joke.

Check it at the 4:00-minute mark below:

During an interview on FOX Soul, Wendy said she has no plans to ever meet Kevin’s daughter.

“Why would I want to meet her? I don’t know her. And I don’t wanna know her…She’ll want to meet me first though. Do you know where your father was the night that your mother was giving birth? He was with that lady on TV, Miss Wendy. ‘Cause he was with me.”

“I’m paying for my kid to stay in school, he can’t count on his father. I’m paying alimony. I’m paying for him to take care of his new daughter. What do you think he’s using my alimony for? I’m paying for his luxurious lifestyle. He still likes Rolls Royces and the newest MCM bags… either for her or for him just to keep her quiet.”

Peep her interview below:

Wendy’s comments come ahead of her upcoming LIFETIME biopic, “Wendy Williams: The Movie.” Lately, Wendy has been busy on the promo trail to promote her biopic and a documentary that will follow the film.

During a recent interview with “The Jess Cagle Show,” Wendy revealed she new about Kevin’s affair with Sharina right when it began “almost 15 years” ago.

“I’d know about her since almost the beginning,” Williams said, noting Hunter carried out an affair for “almost 15 years” of their 21-year marriage. “I’ve known that Kevin was a serial cheat. The first time I found out was while I was pregnant with our son on bedrest…This girl, wasn’t the only one. She just happens to be the one who kept his baby.”

It’s been rumored Wendy and former radio co-host Charlamagne tha God fell out because he introduced Sharina to Kevin. Charlamagne said he introduced her to Kev in an attempt to help her kick off her modeling career.

In the interview, Wendy said Kevin was a “serial cheater” and that Sharina wasn’t the only one. She’s just the only one who decided to keep his baby. Oh? Sounds like she’s alluding to there being more extramarital babies.

Wendy Williams Threatens To Expose Her Brother After He Revealed She Didn’t Attend Their Mother’s Funeral, Wendy’s Ex-Husband Attended

Wendy Williams has threatened to EXPOSE her brother, Tommy Williams, if he doesn’t stop talking about her life. He recently revealed she didn’t attend their mother’s funeral and that Wendy’s ex-husband, Kevin Hunter Sr., was there. Oh? More inside…

Wendy Williams has become a Hot Topic…again.

2020 kicked off with Wendy Williams getting the greenlight that her divorce from her husband of 20+ years was official. This year is starting off with family drama for the daytime talk show host! Wendy and her brother, Tommy Williams, are going AT IT.

So what happened? Let us break it down…

R.I.P. SHIRLEY WILLIAMS
Anybody that knows Wendy Williams knows she loved her Mom. Praying for you Wendy. pic.twitter.com/MfBQQ3zYNI

— IG: iLissaNJ (@iLissaNJ) December 6, 2020

Last month, Wendy revealed her mother, Shirley Williams, had passed away. She was 83. During her show on December 7th, the 56-year-old talk show host told viewers her mother died “many, many, weeks ago.” She said her mother died "beautifully and peacefully and surrounded by love," adding, "She didn’t suffer, not one bit, thank goodness.”

Check it at the 2-minute mark below:

On that same day, Wendy’s brother, Tommy, hopped on his YouTube account to record a Live where he disputed Wendy’s claim that their mother had passed away “many, many weeks ago.” Apparently, their mom had just died days ago, according to Tommy.

Peep his live below (starting at the 10:35-minute mark):

 

 

Fast forward to now and the sibling drama has heated UP!

On Saturday, Tommy hopped on his YouTube Live to share with his followers how he has been feeling since the death of his mother. While talking about how he’s handling grief, he revealed his sister, Wendy, did NOT attend their mother’s funeral and he’s confused why.

"I don’t understand how a person can miss out on giving a salute to the one person who is always there, who always showed support," Tommy shared during an Instagram Live session. "I don’t understand how a person cannot go to a funeral and hold up the one person or the family member that you do have, the parent that you do have left, and just move on. Keep it moving . I don’t understand how to keep living somebody who could cause that type of pain."

"She spends time doing what she wants to do, that’s why I’m caught up in my thoughts because why wouldn’t you come to your mother’s funeral? Why?" he wondered. "It’s not their fault. And I have a father he needs because I’ve got to fill that gap that he felt that day."

Tommy didn’t provide an explanation as to why Wendy didn’t attend the funeral. However, he did note that Wendy’s ex-husband, Kevin Hunter Sr., was in attendance.

"Wendy’s ex Kevin came out to support the family and I appreciate that. There’s no malice that I have towards him, never will be there. He made a choice, it was a poor choice and it was the one that broke the camel’s back. But I appreciate him coming to the funeral for my mother," Tommy said, acknowledging Kevin’s infidelity during his marriage to Wendy.

You can check out his live (starting at the 12:30-minute mark) below:

Well, Wendy fans flooded her comments on Instagram about what her brother said about her, so she responded to him DIRECTLY on her show today (January 18th).

“Tommy, let me tell you something right now. All you are is my brother,” she started. “You better stop talking the way you’re talking because now it’s dripping into my comment page. See, I wasn’t searching for Tommy. You know what I mean? I was simply looking about how people felt about last week’s show, or the dresses, or the guests we had on. We do a nice production here. I’m minding my wendyshow.com business. And I’m seeing a lot of comments about ‘Oh, your brother doesn’t like you,’ or ‘You better watch your back because your brothers on one,’ or ‘Wendy I can’t believe you’re this kind of person.’ He’s pegging me to be this kinda person I’m not.

Oh, Wendy is PISSED. She even threatened to EXPOSE her brother’s personal business…WITH receipts.

“Honey, you don’t want me to start pegging you to be the kinda person you are. With full blown receipts. I could fill the audience with receipts. With leftovers around the block.”

“You are my brother. Let’s keep it that way. If you wanna talk on the internet then you talk about the things you think you know about yourself. You don’t wanna talk about the things that I know about you. For sure.”

OOP!

Brother Tommy may want to ease up on talking publicly about his sister because this is getting UGLY!

Wendy Williams Reveals Which Celeb She Wants To SMASH & It May Surprise You

Wendy Williams has been out in these streets zippin & zooin’ it. Now, she’s revealing who she would hop in bed with and her answer may surprise you. Find out who it is, plus new deets about her upcoming biopic inside…

Okay WENDY!

Listen, Wendy Williams is a single woman out in these streets and has been living it up since calling off her 20+ year marriage with her ex-Kevin Hunter.

Today, the daytime TV host let viewers in on a dirty secret. She revealed which celeb she would smash and her answer may shock some of you. You ready?

Wendy said if she was to smash any celebrity it would be former NBA baller Matt Barnes. Oh?! Yep, she said she loves his girlfriend Anansa Sims (they recently got back together) and their kids, so she’s no homewrecker. And then she shaded her ex-husband for cheating (and making a baby) on her during their marriage.

”I’m not the disrespectful Hunter….breaking up homes and stuff,” she said. 

Bloop!

The 56-year-old daytime talk show host said if the opportunity ever came up she would accept it and keep it moving. She told Norman if he ever gets the alert about a breakup to call her right away. Chile…

”For me he’s not a keeper, but he’s a good weekend treat,” she said.

We see you, Wendy.

Peep the clip (starting at 3:56) below:

Also…

Ahead of her LIFETIME biopic dropping on January 30th, Wendy dropped a bombsell about one part of her life she hadn’t shared before. During a panel discussion to promote the movie, she said she was sexually assaulted by late R&B singer Sherrick. She said she met the singer during an interview and instantly was hooked.

"He mesmerized me with his twinkling eyes," she told reporters. "He flipped the interview around to where he was interviewing me — I was just gaga over this man and he asked me to go to an opening party, an album release party, with him that night."

"And before the party, I was date raped by him," she continued, sharing that she was also date raped when she was in college.

"Those types of things happen to girls all the time," Williams added. "And they’ve been happening a lot, to a lot of our mothers, grandmothers, great-great-grandmothers and their great-great-grandmothers, too."

Sherrick’s widow, Lynne Conner Smith, caught wind of the sexual assault allegations brought against her late husband and spoke out to defend him. The singer died in 1999.

His widow told PageSix Wendy should let her late husband “rest in peace,” as the man she loves “is not here to defend himself.”

“Sherrick was a beautiful man, a genius with a voice like an angel,” said. “We have three amazing children. This is quite painful to not only us but his nieces and siblings.”

It’s been over two decades since Sherrick passed and Sherrick’s widow wants to know, “Why now?!” She didn’t downplay Wendy’s account of sexual assault, but she did question why she would make the accusations publicly when Sherrick isn’t here to defend himself.

“The man that others knew as ‘Sherrick’ passed away 21 years ago. He was loved and adored by his family and we miss him every day,” said Lynne. “As I will never minimize or dismiss the horrid actions of sexual assault, I am saddened that Ms. Williams feels the need to publicly make these allegations when the man she is accusing is no longer on this earth to defend himself. Our family does not know Ms. Williams and are not aware of any relationship or encounter they may have had.”

“Why would Wendy not call the police if it were true?” she continued “Why did she go out with him? We have questions, too!”

Wendy Williams: The Movie premieres on LIFETIME January 30th at 8/7c.

RUMOR CONTROL: Kanye West & Makeup Guru Jeffree Star Shut Down Cheating Rumors After YouTuber Posted Subliminals

Rumors about Kanye West cheating on his wife Kim Kardashian West with YouTube star Jeffree Star quickly made their rounds on social media. They were fueled even more when Jeffree put up that “Sunday Service” subliminal. Oh? Everything inside…

Rumor control in full effect.

After reports of a possible divorce on the horizon between Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West, the rumor mill kicked into overdrive.

Apparently, a TikToker (@realavalouiise) has been sitting on some "Kanye cheating on Kim" tea that she received from one of her lawyer friends. And now that Ye & Kim are likely calling it quits, she’s spilling.

In the video, she said the Jesus Is King rapper has been “hooking up with a very famous beauty guru, male beauty guru” for a while. Oh? She said she was tipped off months ago, so when reports about a divorce surfaced, she wasn’t surprised.

“A lot of people in the scene have known for a while,” she said.

She said Kim met with her friend – who is supposedly a celebrity lawyer – in L.A. and that she was given evidence of her husband’s alleged affair.

Watch the video below (if it doesn’t show up for you, click here).

@realavalouiise

i can’t say WHO cuz he’ll sue me hint hint but it’s part of the reason Kanye’s so religious now it’s his self hatred …. my source is legit I promiss

original sound – Ava Louise

 

The TikToker didn’t name any names to prevent being hit with a lawsuit. However, she did hop in comments and reacted to her fans predictions. Every post that named YouTuber Jeffree Star, she liked. Check it:

Not long after her post, Jeffree Star caught wind of the Internet chatter and decided to add fuel to the fire. Jeffree shared a picture of himself in a pink robe with the caption, “I’m ready for Sunday Service,” obviously a reference to Kanye’s Sunday Service events. The YouTube star also tagged himself in Caspar, Wyoming. He copped a 70-acre Wyoming ranch after selling his pink Calabasas mansion to live there part-time. He also has a spot in Orange County that he said he’s going to keep. 

If you didn’t know, Ye has a $14 million ranch in Cody, Wyoming which is a few hours away from Casper.

Oh, there’s more. In a screenshot of alleged text messages, Jeffree responded to @KeemStar about the Kanye cheating rumors.

“Jeffree what do I say about these current rumors with you and Kanye,” the user asked. Jeffree then responded, “Hahaha. I’m having the best time in Wyoming, come visit sometime!”

Clout chasing at its finest. The Twitter user also shared some lyrics from Jeffree’s 2009 song "B*tch, Please!" where he talked about allegedly performing fellatio on Kanye.

Well, Ye’s camp wants you to know the rumors are FALSE.

A source told E! News on Wednesday that there’s “no truth” to the speculation.

“There is absolutely no truth to Jeffree and Kanye rumors,” the insider said.

Just an hour ago, Jeffree posted this video explaining why he’s actually in Wyoming:

And he also clapped back at Wendy Williams saying there’s other rappers that’s actually been in his mouth.  Oh?!

If she only knew about the actual rappers who have visited my mouth. Taking that shit to the grave miss thing. https://t.co/YLdCRwT2TM

— Jeffree Star (@JeffreeStar) January 7, 2021

"POSE" trans star Angelica Ross posted a few subs on Twitter and fans immediately speculated she was spilling tea about Kanye’s alleged sexual preference: 

"Just know the girls have the INTEL!," Angelica tweeted and then deleted. "A certain rapper who allegedly cheated with trans person is not new to trans women. I’ll never tell it because it’s not my tea to tell, but ole dude has a preference for sure. And he certainly isn’t the only one. The girls are in their BAG!"

 

SAME! It was the cautionary tale for us at the time. https://t.co/JyQQig8fdq

— Angelica Ross (@angelicaross) January 7, 2021

 

 

NOPE! This is on YA’LL!!!!!!! We didn’t create that dynamic. It’s tea for YA’LL!!!! It’s all facts for us. It’s cold tea in our circles. When y’all ready to really have that talk the girls BEEN ready. With receipts. https://t.co/hnBEFxpc4o

— Angelica Ross (@angelicaross) January 7, 2021

 

After receiving backlash, Angelica changed up her tune:

 

I’m laughing at what YA’LL posted and tagged us in! I’m in no way insinuating that in that OLD TMZ clip that we were talking about anyone specific. Y’all woke ME up this morning tagging me with this!

— Angelica Ross (@angelicaross) January 7, 2021

 

Then, Angelica owned up to being messy.

 

Ok. I was messy. It wasn’t a clean swipe I’ll admit that. I didn’t have to share it. But I did not create the caption nor the circumstances and I won’t allow anyone to place false blame, but I’ll always own up to my missteps.

RHOA REUNION AFTERMATH: NeNe Leakes Bashes Eva’s Alleged Bedroom Behavior, ‘No. 2’ Peach Kandi Burruss, ‘Skinya’ Moore & Vivica A. Fox

NeNe Leakes got so mad during the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion that she turned her computer off. However, she’s back to give a recap of what went down and how she felt during the Season 12 reunion. And you know she’s shading her “haters.” More inside…

The Season 12 reunion of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” had to go digital since we’re all on lockdown during the Coronavirus pandemic. However, that surely didn’t stop the shade show.

Everyone unleashed a season’s worth of reads and it made for entertaining TV. However, everything isn’t all fun and games for the self-proclaimed “HBIC” of the show.

After Part 1 of the reunion aired, NeNe Leakes hopped online to chop it up with the hosts of Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club” to give her side of everything that transpired.

While all the bickering and fighting is entertainment to the viewers, it’s seemingly taking a toll on NeNe. She revealed she’s in therapy following the reunion because it’s hard on her mental. She said she’s constantly attacked for every little thing she does and it’s draining.

“You have to need therapy after doing this for so long,” she explained. “And therapy is only for me to make sure I don’t run over to someone house, knock it down and choke the sh*t out of them.”

This season, NeNe and Kandi Burruss were not friends. Kandi mentioned NeNe was only in therapy as a “damage control tactic,” but y’all know NeNe isn’t here for Kandi and her side remarks, so she responded. NeNe feels like Kandi has been coming for her because she needs a storyline.

“Kandi just wants to be #1. You know she’s never been #1 in anything she has done," NeNe spewed. "Coming over here to my house, she wants to be #1. The seat is not available yet. It’ll be available when I give it to her. She’s #2.”

So, how did NeNe and Kandi began beefing (again) in the first place?

NeNe said she and Kandi had their little issue years ago, but they it go. Their issues didn’t start until NeNe spoke on a situation on her YouTube series. NeNe said she spoke on a situation that didn’t involved Kandi. In fact, she said Kandi’s name was never mentioned, however Kandi obviously felt a type of way about what she said and ran with it. NeNe said since they’re cool, she texted Kandi and Kandi started firing back at her (via text messages). NeNe said she assured Kandi the situation she was addressing wasn’t about her, but Kandi kept going off.

“I knew she just wanted some smoke with me,” NeNe said. “She’s been boring for a while now and so, what better way to have someone to call your name – Kandi – then to put it in line with NeNe Leakes.”

Oop! Sounds like she’s salty about those reports that said Kandi was the highest paid housewife.

No surprise NeNe went in on her enemy Kenya "Skinya" Moore during the interview. NeNe said she never sees them resolving their issue – ever – and that Kenya needs to stay in her lane.

"I don’t see us ever resolving anything. Listen, when you’re on a show like this there are several different personalities,” NeNe expalined. “There’re six girls. Everybody needs to play their position and ride in their lane. The problem is, people want to crossover into your lane. This is my lane! You can’t get over here. Stay over there. Be good at what you’re good at. Don’t worry about what I’m doing over here. Too many people are worried. These girls are all in competition. Be good at what you’re good at. I’m not moving…If the show didn’t want me here, then the show would take me off."

NeNe also addressed actress Vivica A. Fox hinting at NeNe having a drug problem. Lordt. She said it was very “f*cked up” for Vivica to say that especially when she thought they were cool.

"These people have fallen from grace. So who better to talk about than the person everyone is talking about?,” NeNe said.

Back to the reunion, NeNe also addressed her public fallout with Wendy Williams. She was upset that the ladies are quick to talk about things going on in her life, but leave out tidbits about their own.

"They were talking about things like Wendy Williams. We’ve been quarantined when Wendy and I had a disagreement. It has nothing to do with the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ but if you wanna discuss it, okay I’m fine with discussing it. But let’s discuss the s**t that happened with you since we’ve been in quarantine. Kandi’s restaurant got shot up, so why didn’t we talk about that?"

NeNe also unleashed on her co-star Eva Marcille, alluding that the former "ANTM" contestant used to "lick bottoms" for a come up.

“Licking bottoms out in LA just to stay on top,” NeNe said in reference to Eva. “I’m saying, that’s the word out on these streets,” she said.

When asked if Eva was coming back for the next season, NeNe said she didn’t know. She said Eva is boring, so she doesn’t see the point in her returning.

Peep the full interview below:

Part 2 of the Season 12 "RHOA" reunion airs this Sunday at 8pm EST on Bravo!

Then I bought a couple jewels, they like, “Glock, you a fool” (Yeah)
Bitch ain’t nothin’ new but these motherfuckin’ blues (Bitch)

[Chorus]
I was just 6, playin’ with sticks, yeah (Glizzock)

Killin’ shit, give me a sentence, ooh (Killin’ shit)

Young nigga give you the business, uh (Yeah)

CHANCE THE RAPPER – Big B’s lyrics

Big business
Like the opp say big business, you know what I’m saying, fucks
Yeah, now watch me

[Verse 1: Young Thug]
Handful of hunnids, real big Bentley
Hublot, nigga get some business
Whole lotta hoes, nigga get your women, heh
Stuff ‘er with the pole, come and get your women nigga
Big business, talk shit Wendy Williams, ooh
Catch ’em at the club sipping, fuck around they missing, hold on
Big pimping, iced out my crew now my mission complete
Pimp C, I ain’t doing that, I’ma fuck her on the sheets, yeah
And all my niggas loyal like Bun B, hold on
Fuck you thought? YSL till we d-i-e, hold on, hold on
Fuck around and set the bitch off like Queen Latifah
Hold on, hold on, yeah, going all out ’bout my dog like Scooby-ee
And a nigga trap door swinging like Bizzy B, woah
Outdated temporary tag on a Bentley B (Bentley B)
Two tone wire bag, double R, park it on the streets, yeah, hold on
Two tone wire bag, big tires tear up the streets, rwar
Looking at your kid, I might be the papi (sheesh)
65 pointers in the Cuban sheesh (damn, woah, sheesh)
Diamonds on the backside tearing up my skin, sheesh
Uh, your old man tryna do it like me, sheesh

[Chorus: Chance The Rapper]
Please, please
Treat me like you know who I am
Please, please
Bitch I know who I am, uh

[Verse 2: Chance The Rapper]
I got money on my card
Put some money on they books, that’s a yard
I declare war on the beast for my God, sheesh
Gross 3 mil off the new hat
If I could go back, I make the two cap
Love me in my city like Cusack
Get a little beat and I’ll loop that
Get a little money, I’ll oop that
Split it with my niggas in the group chat
Left for a minute then I flew back
Had to ask Bruce “where the truth at?”
Had to ask Rahm “where the truth at?”
Now I can’t ride with the roof back
Tell ’em I don’t play around with other people’s kids
Got an office in the steakhouse
Gotta bid for the ribs
Got a meeting at the Ritz
Gave a trip to my rib
‘Cause she leaving where I live but I see her in a min
Got a Michael prayer card for the good luck, ay
Bra push up when I pull up, ay
Got a little money from the tour, yeah
Spend it all on baby pull ups, ay
Big old Bentley, bitch I mix the Henny with the Simply
Lemonade exterior, Lorenzos under Bentleys
Put you in the friend zone if you start acting too friendly
Bought a baby Benzo and some Kenzo just for Kensli
Wake up real early but I eat late
Go and hit the streets with that brief case
Time to shake down another cheap skate
You could tell he’s lying, cheesecake

[Verse 3: Young Thug]
Make a nigga bitch tap out
Then put you in the fours with a real big body
Bitch said nigga need to stop got 100 racks on me
Can’t fit in my pocket
I’m a street nigga, I’ma eat me some soup, I’ma let my bitch eat pasta
Told y’all niggas ain’t stopping
Black card in my wallet, I’ma feed my partner
I was at one of my shows feeling like Cam’ron with the pink Margielas
We was tryna beat a murder capital, riding around the town with the pink Beretta
When I got in touch with the money, me and shawty fucked around and filled my schedule
Momma just sent me a picture got Indian in my family through my God damn nana
Young nigga fucked ’round, dropped out school, learned it all through the ID channel
Young nigga fucked around and ran out of bullets in the .40, got to get a banana
These young niggas go brazy, done got that money, they still might pop
So many blue faces on me right now, young nigga still gamble
35 racks for the factories, I steal mammals
I ain’t no rapper nigga, I teach ya
I’m a big dog, no pedigree, I eat racks
Boomerang your bitch sweet, she coming back

[Chorus: Chance The Rapper]
Please, please
Treat me like you know who I am
Please, please
Bitch I know who I am, uh

Tech N9ne – Wifi (WeeFee) (The Storm Deluxe Edition Album)

[Intro:]
Yeah *laughter*
Go right up

[Verse 1]
Connect, ain’t nobody but Tech
I been dope since I put raps on BASF cassette
Since then my pen been at war like Montagues and Capulets
A menacing strap you get, been winning in rap who’s next
To get permanent power polluted, paper protruded
Punani praise on its pubics and they’re prepared to pursue it
Get us then we drills em
Having plenty thrills um wellington New Zealand banging her with a chest like Wendy Williams
Everybody know with the kinda money I bring to the table I can put em off
Take em all around the world, get the dough and get the girl touching other people and I brought the hood along
Teams where I wings fly people I never seen cry
If you wanna see the mean side just go stream what I seen on steam, put your hand in my bean pie
Salam [?]
I’m something fierce, I bring player haters to tears with my schemes
Come reach me, I got the species locked and no one can beat me
The feces, what I released on this beat he’s gonna wanna seek me because I’m the WeeFee

[Hook]
WeeFee, WeeFee, WeeFee
I can put you on
WeeFee, WeeFee, WeeFee
With my push alone
WeeFee, WeeFee, WeeFee
Now you’re set in stone, I’m the
WeeFee

[Verse 2]
People need me, I’m the WeeFee
I get them on movies and TV
Connecting Scooby and Stevie
Straight from Missouri to Fiji
Trying to intrigue me ain’t easy
Unless you bringing them bad beasies in three-bies
We be having them louder than 194 dB
Organ, grinding, so they pour us in their mouth, and they’re loving it like Thorazine
When they freaking out I’m Jim Morrison
But I go without hair Billy Corgan
Releasing a lot more of them endorphins
WeeFee wins the war again the gores been like a horror film
Cause we kill, everything so be still
When we move in, not a cheap thrill
When the beat feels like E pills
Steadily repping B till, my B-L-double O-D spills
Then again Tech Nina keep mills
So I know I’mma get me a refill
Tech is highly respected
Been with a few major labels and left it
I rated my records intrepid
Since they didn’t rep it then F it
Now I’m elected to get the check and invest it
I’m such a vet you can bet I can get you connected
Cause I’m the WeeFee

[Hook]
WeeFee, WeeFee, WeeFee
I can put you on
WeeFee, WeeFee, WeeFee
With my push alone
WeeFee, WeeFee, WeeFee
Now you’re set in stone, I’m the
WeeFee

[Verse 3]
If you with me but hating me
Disconnect from me, get away from me
Get a bit of fake thinkin’ they’re big as your paper be
When they try to shake a G they normally have to take a fee that’s lower than what they pay for he that works in Eminem’s bakery
You doubt a N9ne, you out of sight you out of mind
Nigga shout a crime from me they sniffing them powder lines
I’m the righteous
But I’m killing ’em like I’m Cypress
Play me like I’m not the nicest
No WeeFee leave you lifeless
Taking a knife to fight with ISIS, I like it
When they spite they get vices
When they hit that pipe think they’re psychic
Wanna figure my mic and try to slice it
But they do fizzle when they hear SuWu whistles
Disrespect me true this will happen and they lose signal
This was long awaited
Strange is how all the fakes were created
They think they made it, forgot about me and skated
They music, everybody played it cause I was right there to save it
They downgraded they hate it cause their signal is faded
Cause I’m the WeeFee, nigga

[Hook]
WeeFee, WeeFee, WeeFee
I can put you on
WeeFee, WeeFee, WeeFee
With my push alone
WeeFee, WeeFee, WeeFee
Now you’re set in stone, I’m the
WeeFee
