Wendy Williams has incensed a lot of celebrities during her career as talk radio and talk show host. The most well known dispute that seemed to catapult her from a local New York radio show host to a household name, is her infamous beef with Whitney Houston. But, even Whitney’s tirade on her show pales in comparison to the choice words Wendy’s newest enemy has for her.
Well, maybe she isn’t that new of an enemy. Janet Hubert, who was the original Aunt Viv on the now defunct Fresh Prince, has had a problem with Wendy Williams in the past. Last year, during the time of Whitney’s death, Hubert wrote an open letter chastising Wendy for “crucifying” Whitney while she was alive. But this time, she felt directly insulted by an interview Wendy Williams had with Tatyana Ali on her show.
Janet Hubert took to Blogtalkradio Wednesday, to express why she felt compelled to address Wendy Williams for bringing her name up, incorrectly, during her interview with Tatyana. She started off with details of her day and how she overheard Wendy Williams say her name wrong and it was ON! from there. She said she wanted to see Tatyana Ali, but I cringed as she called her a “child.” Young woman, maybe, but not a child. She confirmed my discomfort with her use of the word when later in her rant she said that Wendy Williams reduced Tatyana to a “child” during the interview as she tried to “pull this nut out of her.”
She said that she promised herself she’d never do this again, but she wrote another letter to “make sure she heard it.” It started with:
Dear Whittey, William, whatever you’re supposed to be, I’m not quite really sure. I’m writing to you yet again to appeal to your sense of womanhood or manhood, as some suggest, to simply close your mouth on things you know nothing of.
She said that Wendy Williams was calling herself putting “an end to the mystery surrounding [her] departure” from a show she left so long ago that she didn’t even remember why she left. But, it seemed that it all hit a nerve and she went on to say:
You are such a demon, Wendy. You are wicked, awful, conniving, sinister, spiteful, jealous of every other woman. Simply put, Wendy, you are a virus and you are not nor have you ever been a true woman. Wendy girlfriend, you just messed with the wrong sister!
And she offered Wendy some advice:
Stop fidgeting with yourself on camera.
Wipe your giant teeth off-camera.
If your sweater is pulling, honey, until there are lines across your chest, it’s too tight.
Take off the fake blonde hair or you gotta stop playing the race card ’cause you come off as a wannabe white girl, who will never be white…I have never seen such a display of self-hatred, Wendy.
And these are just some highlights from her speech. Check it out for yourself. You think Hubert took it too far? Is she also making black women look bad? What do you think? Tell us after you get a listen.
