Wendy Williams went full on Wendy Williams during her first show back from a holiday break on Monday.
By which, of course, we mean that the talk show host delivered a couple of ridiculous, mean-spirited, uninformed opinions about other celebrities because that’s the only way she can make headlines.
And, yes, we know:
We’re giving her the headlines she so craves via this article.
But whatever. Williams sucks and everyone has to finally realize this.
First, the irritating personality decided she would zip when everyone else was zagging, choosing to insult Oprah Winfrey for her speech at the Golden Globes Awards on Sunday instead of praise the rumored Presidential candidate
To make matters as worse as possible, too, Williams didn’t attack Oprah for the contents of her speech (which you can watch below), but for her appearance.
Yes, Wendy Williams slammed Oprah for being fat.
“I could’ve sworn she would pop her corset,” Williams actually said on air. “Because, you know, Oprah is not the best spokesperson for a weight loss company.”
There are just so many reactions one can have to this craven remark.
First, it’s old. Jokes and references to Oprah’s fluctuating weight have been made over and over again for decades.
Second, it’s mistaken. Oprah looks great. Go back and look at old photos of her. She has come a very long way.
Third, it’s cruel and degrading. Williams is really attacking a woman for her weight?!? On the heels of that same woman making a speech about female empowerment, during an event dedicated to the victims of sexual harassment.
Seriously: for shame, Wendy.
“It’s not even Spanx anymore, [it’s] the old-fashioned corset like they wore back in the day, with all the strings,” Williams continued as the crowd laughed.
The terrible host then mimicked what it would’ve looked like if Winfrey had burst her alleged outfit while on the stage accepting her award.
From there, Williams set her sights on another beloved star: Carrie Underwood.
The country singer took a hard fall late last year and admitted in an emotional blog post last week that she had to get 40-50 stitches in her face.
“I honestly don’t know how things are going to end up,” Underwood wrote online, adding:
“When I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different.”
Talk about a rare instance of vulnerability from a big-time celebrity, right?
Wrong, Williams insists.
She basically called Underwood a liar in her “Hot Topics” segment.
“Did you hear about her?” Williams said, prior to making the accusation:
“I really don’t know a whole bunch about it, but she allegedly fell down a bunch of steps at her house, broke her wrist.
“She released on Twitter that we may not recognize her when it’s all said and done. I don’t know what that means… an excuse for a face lift.”
The audience at least reacted in horror to this allegation, prompting Williams to kind of, sort of walk back the comment:
“No… We’re cynical! She was already cute, so I don’t know what she’s doing or what happened. If you’re home by yourself, how long do you lay there?
“Who’s going to save you, the dog?”
What the heck is Williams even talking about here?
Perhaps she should have stopped after saying I really don’t know a whole bunch about it.
But that’s not how Wendy Williams rolls.
She bashed Meghan Markle as a scheming liar last month, with zero evidence to back up such a claim.
We’ve been trying to tell everyone forever that Williams may be the worst person alive.
Maybe they’ll now start to believe us…
