Oh, what’s that? You say you haven’t heard about Wendy Williams acting like a tragic disaster of a human being lately? Well, sorry for taking so long to bring this to you. Everybody’s favorite daytime mess (after Meghan “My Father…” McCain) is at it again, and this time, not even a mandated quarantine is gonna keep her down.
Get ready for another Wendy non-apology because Page Six is reporting that Wendy not only wants to get back to work, she’s willing to forego the advice of everybody with a brain and risk her health, and the health of others, in order to make it happen.
“I got a telephone call, honestly, and the phone call was, ‘Wendy?’ I was like, ‘What? What am I doing wrong now?’ I always think I’m in trouble. They said, ‘We’re all shutting down everything, all the networks. Nobody is going to be doing new shows. We want all the hosts to be well.’”
She always thinks she’s in trouble? And yet, has it ever stopped her from taking 2.5 seconds to think before spewing out ignorance? Hmmm…
“Williams went on, ‘I’m willing to risk it with one camera and a flashlight. I’m ready to go back to work next week. I’m ready to go back to work when we’re like — come on, let’s go!”
“I can do it even with no audience. I don’t even have to have the staffers there because I did that for two days.’ But they said, ‘No. We need to have you home, indefinitely.’ There will be no more Wendy or any of the other people for a period of time.’”
Nothing would be more poetic than watching Wendy sitting alone in a studio, gossiping to an audience of no one, but, you know, businesses have HR departments for a reason. The execs made it clear that no matter what Wendy says, staff members are NOT coming in to help tape her messy rants.
“A statement released to staffers the evening of March 12 read, “The safety and well-being of our employees is our top priority. Considering the current escalation of the Coronavirus, production will be put on hold, indefinitely. However, the office will remain open for you to pick up any materials or personal items.
“In place of live shows we will air repeats and we will continue to monitor the situation with the CDC and city officials to determine the best time to return and produce live shows again. Thank you for everything you do and please stay safe!”
During these dark times, Wendy should really think of others for once, namely the PR department of her show who probably have a coronary every time she opens her mouth. They need a break.
