Wendy Williams Announces Illness, Leave of Absence

We often make fun of Wendy Williams.

And for mostly a very good reason:

She really does suck a whole lot.

This is someone who spends every single talk show saying cruel things about other celebrities.

And not just cruel thing, but REALLY cruel things that have no basis in fact.

She just speculates wildly about stars and topics in the news, even saying at one recent point that she is sick of the #MeToo Movement and slamming Kylie Jenner’s baby as ugly.

Williams just does not come across as a very good person.

All that said, we don’t wish her any kind of physical harm. We aren’t monsters, folks.

This is why we’d like to send Wendy our best wishes in light of the news she shared this morning with her studio audience.

Williams has confirmed a diagnosis of hyperthyroidism and Graves’ disease for herself.

As a result, you won’t be seeing her on the small screen any time in the near future.

“My doctor has prescribed – are you ready? – three weeks of vacation,” she told viewers after detailing her symptoms, which include difficulty sleeping and irritability.

She added: “I was pissed. Encore performances, really?”

Hey, Wendy, one’s health always comes first. Remember that.

Williams explained that Graves’ disease squeezes the muscles behind the eyeballs and said she thinks she experienced this symptom because she was focusing on her work AND on her son’s college applications.

She is such a trooper.

“I’ll be back in two [weeks],” Williams added, saying randomly and annoyingly:

“I’m not an heiress – who is going to pay my bills? Are you serious? I’m just saying, I come from working class.”

Yeah. You’re a millionaire, Wendy. Just shut up already.

In a statement to various entertainment news outlets, the talk show said the following:

Wendy is a true champion and has never missed a day of work. But her health and well-being must be put before all else.

Wendy has been openly dealing with her Graves’ disease for many years in addition to hyperthyroidism. Yesterday, Wendy’s doctor prescribed a necessary three weeks of rest to get her levels and medication in sync.

The show will be in repeats during this unplanned hiatus. A live show was produced today so that Wendy could speak directly to her fans and explain her condition.

Williams concluded her message by again stating that Oprah is fat.

Just kidding.

She instead told women (not men, just women) to insure they always have an eye on their health.

“What I want to say to women, more than men, is stop putting everyone first because if we’re not good, they’re not good.”

What a weird thing to say, right?

Williams previously had a health scare in October of last year, when she fainted during her live Halloween episode.

Producers rushed to the stage as the broadcast cut to a commercial.

When Wendy returned a few minutes later, she explained that she was dehydrated and overheated in her Statue of Liberty costume.


Serena Williams Takes Black Girls to ‘Black Panther,’ ‘Huge Moment for Black People’

Serena Williams surprised a group of young black girls with a private screening of “Black Panther” on Thursday — telling the crowd, “This is a huge moment for us and for black people.” Serena and her hubby, Alexis Ohanian, organized the event…


Wendy Williams: Travis Scott WILL Leave Kylie Jenner! He’s Already Cheating!

On February 1st, Kylie Jenner welcomed her baby girl into the world. The precious newborn is named Stormi Webster, taking the (real) last name of her father, rapper Travis Scott.

Though some had questioned what role Kylie’s boyfriend and baby daddy would play in Stormi’s life, Travis made it clear that he’s going to be there for Kylie and for his daughter.

But that hasn’t stopped Wendy Williams from predicting that he’ll leave Kylie by the summer. In fact, she thinks he might be cheating on Kylie already.

Just a little over a week before Stormi Webster’s birth, Wendy Williams claimed that Travis Scott had dumped Kylie. At least, that she figured that he had.

The way that Wendy Williams looks at things, Travis Scott is a young man with a reasonably successful music career.

When Kylie got pregnant, he’d only been dating her for, what? A month at the most?

For most people, an unplanned pregnancy with a teenager (Kylie was 19 at the time, folks) you barely know is nearly a worst-case scenario. Especially when a potential fatherhood might derail your touring schedule.

And, to be fair, Travis Scott did continue to tour during 2017, during Kylie’s pregnancy. With Kylie out of the public eye, many wondered if perhaps the couple had very quietly split.

Wendy Williams went on to proclaim that perhaps Travis had already left Kylie.

“Like, the condom split, she took the test and was probably like, ‘Oh my god, what do I do now? Travis!’ He’s like, ‘No, I’m a rock star.'”

She then imagined what he might have said to Kylie while leaving her.

“‘You got plenty of money on your own, figure it out … I’ll pay child support from afar.'”

For his part, Travis Scott was furious and hurt that Wendy called him a deadbeat.

Then, of course, Kylie gave birth to Stormi, shared the news, and shared a video of secret pregnancy footage that went back months and months.

In that video, fans can clearly see that Travis is a supportive partner.

Not only is he affectionate (seen kissing Kylie’s baby bump around Christmas), he’s there for Kylie (and, frankly, for himself) at Kylie’s various ultrasounds and doctor’s appointments along the way.

It was clear that Travis Scott was excited about becoming a father.

It was clear that Travis Scott isn’t a deadbeat dad and has no intention of becoming one.

But that hasn’t stopped Wendy Williams.

“People are saying Travis Scott, her boyfriend — for now — is a changed man, mmhmm.”

She’s referring to TMZ‘s report that Travis Scott is a changed man, exciting about being a parent to precious Stormi Webster.

“Well, here’s my thought, don’t tell the young lady: He will flee the scene by summer.”

That’s a bold claim. And we’re not super clear on where it’s coming from.

“Or before! As a matter of fact, he might be lampin’ in the cut with the new girl right now watching our show, hey, how you doin’?”

Having doubts about Travis Scott when the news first broke was understandable.

Plenty of people put themselves in his shoes and went “oh, that’s the last thing he needs; he must have at least thought about skipping out.”

But for someone to still be insisting, in the face of all evidence to the contrary, that Travis Scott is going to run off and never look back?

Best case scenario, maybe she figures that a breakup is usually a safe bet for young couples, and especially for young celebrity couples. The odds are certainly stacked against Kylie and Travis staying together forever.

Some suggest a worst case scenario — that Wendy Williams has some alarming internalized racism that’s given her troubling ideas about the world.

More likely, though, Wendy Williams is saying terrible and inflammatory things about famous people because … that’s what she does for a living.


Wendy Williams Rips Kim Kardashian for “Selfish” Baby Reveal

We’ve despised Wendy Williams for a number of years now.

But we truly despise Wendy Williams these days, and here’s why:

Because she’s been forcing us to defend Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner.

Any regular reader of The Hollywood Gossip must be aware that we aren’t huge fans of these women or their family members.

They aren’t bad people or anything; it’s just that Kim and company are self-obsessed and represent all that’s wrong with a culture which rewards pretty much anyone with a large social media following.

Williams, however, has been going on the attack against Kim and Kyle for weeks now.

It started back when she slammed Kylie’s then-unborn baby as ugly.

From there, she took Kardashian to task for her latest round of naked photos, referring to the mother of three as “desperate” for snapping these images.

Now, Williams has slammed both Kim and Kylie for reasons related to the latter having a daughter.

On Sunday, Jenner came out and announced that she gave birth back on February 1, releasing a heartfelt statement at the time that explained her nine-month silence on her pregnancy.

She also unveiled the following video.

It centered on Kylie’s path to parenthood and included with it our very first look at Kim and her third child, a girl named Chicago West.

Click PLAY to see glimpses of Chicago at the hospital with her aunt:

Instead of seeing this as adorable (or simply ignoring it because it’s none of her business), Williams used the above footage as the basis for tearing into Kim once again.

“Also in the video we saw Chicago West for the first time, which is Kim and Kanye’s new daughter, which I thought was selfish,” Williams said on Monday on air, explaining her reasoning as follows:

“This is Kylie’s moment to do Kylie’s thing and then Kim just showed up with the baby. I think it’s selfish.” 

We don’t think Kim just showed up with the baby or anything like that.

This was an 11-minute video that includes a variety of scenes that depicted Kylie spending time with her loved ones.

Part of that time was comprised of Kim visiting her sister and bringing her brand new baby along with her… and someone recorded this visit and included it along with MANY other scenes in the video.

We fail to see the big deal here.

Then again, we aren’t Wendy Williams.

We don’t make a living by tossing out unfounded, cruel opinions about others on a regular basis.

“I thought [the video] was cute,” Williams added. “But, she’s only 20, what a mess.”

Look, we’ve cracked plenty of jokes about Kylie’s unplanned pregnancy.

And she is absolutely on the younger side when it comes to being a parent.

But we’d never label any stranger’s situation a “mess,” not when we know so little about it, not when it involves a beautiful child… and not when the 20-year old has millions of dollars and can afford help around the clock.

We’re pretty sure there are far messier situations than this around the world.

Due to Wendy’s constant barrage of insults against her family, Kris Jenner has reportedly told her kids not to ever appear on Williams’ terrible talk show.

“Kris is beyond angry at Wendy,” a source told Hollywood Life this week.

“There was a time when they were on good terms, but not anymore. Wendy is dead to Kris, she’s dead to the whole family.

Adds this insider:

“Kris has put a lifelong ban on them ever appearing on Wendy‘s show or anything she’s affiliated with. And they’re taking it a step further and asking all their friends to boycott her show as well.

“They would love to see her cancelled and off the air. This is war.”

And, for one, we’re on the side of Kris Jenner.


Stormy Daniels to Wendy Williams: My Vagina is Athletic and Beautiful!

Stormy Daniels has fired back at Wendy Williams in defense of her supposedly worn out vagina.

God, there’s a sentence we wish we never had to write.

But the veteran porn star – who has become a household name of late due to her alleged affair in 2006 with Donald Trump – was a subject of one of Williams’ cruel and uninformed rants yesterday during the talk show host’s “Hot Topics” segment.

Speaking on Daniels the day after Stormy appeared as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Williams said the following:

“She’s 38 and I know she’s been in the game of porn for a while, but, she’s like a dusty looking throwback porn star, right?” Williams stated while showing her audience a photo of Daniels.

Because she’s a terrible person, Wendy went on to say that Daniels “all worn out down below.” 

Now, look, we’re not typically in the business of defending porn stars.

We’re not in the business of judging them, either, really; how they wish to earn a business is none of our business.

Williams, however, is in the business of judging pretty much everyone, from hurling misguided insults at Oprah Winfrey, Carrie Underwood and even Kylie Jenner’s unborn baby.

Heck, she even recently slammed the #MeToo movement.

Daniels, meanwhile, was not about to take Wendy’s diss lying down.

(Should we have used a different phrase for an adult film star? Whoops. Too late.)

In response to Williams discussing her most private of parts, Daniels told TMZ:

“My vagina is a well trained beautiful athlete that would not have the longest running contract in porn history if she were ugly.”

That’s… a pretty awesome reply, no?

Daniels added that she’d be happy to give Wendy an up close and personal view of her vagina if so desired.

Stormy has been in the news for several weeks now.

It has been alleged that she accepted a $ 130,000 payout from President Trump prior to the 2016 election in exchange for her silence of an affair between the two from about a decade ago.

In Touch Weekly even published an extensive interview it conducted with Daniels about said affair, during which she freely admitted to being familiar with Trump’s penis.

However, Daniels has now sort of backtracked.

She seemed to deny an affair with Trump entirely last week, only to now take the stance that she’s going to remain quite and vague about the whole thing.

Probably because she did sign a non-disclosure agreement in exchange for the aforementioned sum of money.

The point of this story, though, it not to delve into whatever may or may not have transpired between the Commander-in-Chief and a porn star.

It’s mostly just to state once again that Wendy Williams is a nosy and awful person who should stop judging others.

And she definitely should just talking about their vaginas.
