Wendy Williams has had one HELL of a year involving a breakup with her husband because of a side-chick baby, a relapse and a stay in a sober house, and the tabloids following all of it. During all the shenanigans, there were rumors that she was going to lose her talk show. But well, nothing attracts viewers like messy headlines, and so the people at Fox and Debmar-Mercury are sticking by Wendy and are bringing her back for at least two more years of messiness! And Wendy decided to celebrate this renewal by starting a new feud with Christie Brinkley, because why not?
The Hollywood Reporter says that you can expect Wendy to be serving the lemony tea on The Wendy Williams Show for at least through 2022. In a statement she said:
“I’m so excited to launch our 11th year by letting the world know I will continue to do what I love to do so much–and for a very long time. I want to tell Fox and all of our stations today how much their support and confidence means to me. They should know we will never stop working very hard to bring our dedicated Wendy Watchers and audience ‘co-hosts’ the freshest national daytime television!”
People says Wendy decided to celebrate this news by then slandering ageless beauty, 65-year-old Christie Brinkley. On yesterday’s show, Wendy said that Christie must’ve planned her injury which took her out of the show and got her replaced by her daughter, Sailor Brinkley-Cook. Wendy thinks Christie is a faker:
“Well, that looked fake as hell… Let me tell you what I see. I don’t see a wrist and a shoulder being fractured. But that was real cute. Here’s my thought: Dancing with the Stars called Christie Brinkley… and she said yes. After she got off the phone, that’s when she plotted her schedule. …In my opinion, I think what Christie did was she signed up for Dancing with the Stars knowing that she’d put her daughter Sailor in there.”
Wendy knows a thing or two about falls, so maybe we should trust her?
Here’s the fall that Wendy thinks Christie faked, along with Sailor’s performance last night:
Meanwhile, Christie is shocked, I tell you! Shocked, that Wendy would suggest such a thing, telling People:
“I’m totally shocked, because I have been there for Wendy Williams. That is so weird. I have to give her a call… I’m really stunned.”
People says Christie “burst into tears” about this. Over Wendy Williams talking shit? You can’t be serious. Christie is close enough that she supports and knows Wendy, but is also taking what Wendy said as serious? Wendy talks shit about everyone–even herself. Wendy Williams roasting you is nothing to cry over. Now if it was 50 Cent roasting you… that’s another story…
