Wendy Williams has a long history of saying the worst possible thing in every imaginable scenario.
But amazingly, she might find that a large segment of the celeb-obsessed population is in total agreement with her latest hot take.
As you’ve likely heard by now, Justin Bieber married Hailey Baldwin in a small private ceremony in New York City last week.
Justin is 24 and Hailey is 21, which for most of the 20th century was about the age at which people got married.
But these days, that’s considered to be rather young for such a consequential decision, particularly as the divorce rate in this country creeps ever closer to 150 percent.
Throw in fame, an extremely short engagement and a massive wealth discrepancy, and the likelihood of Justin and Hailey waltzing to “One Less Lonely Girl” at their 75th anniversary begins to look rather minuscule.
Ever the Debbie Downer, Wendy was quick to pour cold water on this happy young couple’s hopes and dreams by pointing out that the odds are very much against Justin and Hailey.
“They’ve been on and off allegedly for years, but I don’t care what your background is, these days, 21 is too young to be getting married,” Williams said on a recent episode of her show.
“I know she’s a model, but she’s not one of the biggies. The biggest thing that’s happened to her is that she’s with Bieber,” Wendy added.
“The biggest thing that’s happened to this family in a long time is that they’re attached to Bieber, who’s attached to 250 million dollars.
“I just feel like 21 is too young to be getting married, and he’s only 24, and that’s still too young in this particular day and time,” the daytime host continued.
Williams went on to slam Hailey’s father, Stephen Baldwin, for his alleged eagerness to hop aboard the Bieber gravy train.
“Shame on you Stephen Baldwin for co-signing on your 21-year-old daughter getting married,” she said.
“I think the Baldwins look at Bieber as a cash cow… I think Stephen Baldwin likes to be more relevant again to young people in pop culture and Bieber is a quick way to do that,” Williams added.
As though her pessimism wasn’t abundantly apparent already, Williams went on to add:
“I don’t believe that this is a marriage that will last.”
We’re torn on this one, as Stephen Baldwin is a known sketch-ball, and he probably is thinking about how his daughter’s relationship will affect his career.
But on the other hand, Wendy Williams is the absolute worst, and it sucks that she’s going to such great lengths to rain on this young couple’s parade.
So now we all have one more reason to root for Justin and Hailey — if they last, it’ll royally piss off daytime’s queen of mean.
