Live from New York City, it’s the Wendy Williams Show. ♪ Oh yeah ♪ ♪ Feel it, feel it, feel it ♪ ♪ Feel, feel it-it, feel it ♪ ♪ Feel it, feel it, feel it ♪ ♪ Let’s go, come on, you need it ♪ ♪ How you doin’ ♪ ♪ How-how-how-how you doin’ ♪ Now, here’s Wendy. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) (audience whoops) ♪ How you doin’ ♪ Welcome here again. Thank you for watching. Say hello to my co-host, my studio audience. How you doin’? How you doin’? I’m doin’ okay. Let’s get started. It’s time for Hot Topics. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) (deep bass music) Okay. Okay, thank you, wow. Ooh. Yes. Yes, weekend, yes. All right, so there’s a problem going on. I don’t really like it. I’m gonna tell you why. ‘Cause we all know reality TV destroys families. (audience murmurs) And if there’s one thing I’ve always been consistent about with Kandi is that Kandi was a made woman before Housewives of Atlanta. And there’s another thing that I shared with you when she met Todd. I was like okay, what the opportunist is goin’ on? (audience murmurs) But now, Todd has proven to be a good man for him, or for her, (audience laughs) and a standup dad and the whole bit. I mean if you recall me sayin’, okay, who is this? A producer from the show. But you know what, they’re good together. Now here they go. (audience applauds) Nope, no, stop. Stop. Stop. Stop. Because now Kandi has this YouTube channel thing she does, and she and Todd were talkin’ about life with the new baby. The baby’s name is Blaze. Okay. So Kandi brought to light an issue that she has with Todd’s parenting, and this did not look scripted. This looked like a real couple thumpin’ (audience murmurs) right before us. By the way, I hate the beard. (audience laughs) No, no, not yours, Marco. Yours is manicured. (audience laughs) I don’t know whether that’s a shadow or whether that’s a, that thing, this part right here, okay. This part right here. (audience laughs) What is that part right there? (audience laughs) Is that him, you know how men pull their beards? Oh no. Or maybe it’s rounded off, in which case, okay. But anyway, it’s not about that. It’s about somethin’ that I don’t like. Take a look. He decide he wanna go out and go to the club. She ain’t even a week old yet. Wait, time out.
Two nights in a row. No, no, no, no.
Two nights in a row. Come on, time out. What? You already knew I was goin’ out both of those nights. No. That was somethin’ that was already understood, I was going to the game.
No, no. You knew about the game. No, the first night you said somethin’. Well, let’s ask the people at home. I was already like– Is it okay for the guy to go out? Not when they’re less than a week old. Ooh. And I totally agree with Kandi. And I think that this was a real fight. This is somethin’ that after those cameras cut off, they’re probably sleepin’ in separate mansions. (audience laughs) You know what I mean? (laughs) (audience applauds) Kandi’s body language is serious, right there. It’s serious. I’ve seen her in better hair, by the way. (audience laughs) And obviously, that wasn’t a Todd pull. It’s just a long beard. I don’t wanna see them fight, you know what I’m saying? The others have to fight and drum up all that stuff because the show made them and that goes to all of ’em, even the ones I like. We didn’t know you before the show. We knew Kandi. (audience murmurs) And we know “Bills, Bills, Bills”. And “No Scrubs”. And that Pink song. “There You Go”. “There You Go”. So Todd asked when is it okay to go out and my thought is why do we even have to be part of this conversation? I mean we’re a nosy bunch so we’re, thank you all for openin’ up your private drama with us but Todd, what are you doing asking when is it okay to go out? She just had a baby. Change a Pamper. Uh-huh. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) You know what I’m sayin’? Play your role, new daddy. (audience murmurs) Uh-huh, uh-huh. You change a Pamper and I don’t care whether you get along or not in terms of whether you go out or not. You’d better play your role with this little boy’s life ’cause that baby’s gonna grow up and resent if you don’t, you went to the club. And Kandi also mentioned a little later on in the broadcast, she was saying, he brought up “Well, you’re leaving town.” She said, “Yeah, for work. “Who pays these bills?” (audience murmurs) (audience applauds) I’m leavin’ for work and you’re goin’ out to the club, while you’re supposed to be home changing Pampers. You made the baby. That’s your mess. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) Oh, okay. Okay, now, enough. Enough, enough, enough. Enough, enough, enough, enough, enough. (audience laughs) Eat-nough. (Wendy laughs) Come on. Meanwhile, over in Jersey, (audience murmurs) yeah, our friend black Dolores, (audience laughs) right? (laughs) Black Dolores didn’t hold back when Jackie, now Jackie’s the one married to the surgeon. She gets stuff done on a regular basis. No. No, that’s Jennifer you’re thinking of. Jennifer, okay. Yeah, Jackie’s the blogger, the mommy blogger. Okay. (audience laughs) All right, right. Jennifer. Okay, so Jackie didn’t hold back when, right, Dolores didn’t hold back when she was questioned about her friendship with Jackie, and quite frankly, I was the only one, oh yeah, no, Bureau Chief said she agreed with me. Like you asked me so now I’m gonna let it rip. Well, take a look. So I think you only like people who are old school Italian. Jackie, what it just comes down to is you’re just not for me, that’s all. And I heard today you’ve been very upset. I was very upset. For what? The truth is, yesterday, when Jennifer said “She’s not your friend”, that caught me off guard because I did consider us friends. Then to hear that somebody doesn’t like me because I was raised differently, it felt like a judgment. Listen, it’s just we’re cut from a different cloth. And Jackie is not like me in a way that I would really wanna be much closer to you. (audience murmurs) Well, here’s my thing. Dolores probably wouldn’t have said anything but this was all brought up at the table. And I don’t know about you, I’m a little too old to be lyin’. (audience murmurs) (audience applauds) No. If you wanna know a real opinion then you’re gonna get a real answer. And only me and Bureau Chief said that. Norman thought it was rude. Everybody in the meeting was like she shoulda shut her mouth. Why did Dolores talk like that? ‘Cause Dolores has had it up to here. Dolores has got a husband and a– A husband and a boyfriend. Husband and a boyfriend all livin’ in the same house and a hot son. She’s black Dolores. She’s a little Nigerian. She shared that with us when she came on the show. I knew I was callin’ it right, black Dolores, right? (audience laughs) So yeah. Okay, clap if you think Dolores should not have been so honest. Sir, it’s not the time to get, okay, you went like this. (audience laughs) No, no, no. Emotions here at Wendy when you’re a co-host are not a group effort, all right? So you don’t think that Dolores shoulda been so honest. Well, sometimes you gotta just keep it to your– Sometimes you need to hold it to yourself? See, you look like a particular age. Haven’t you had it up to here with lying and… (audience laughs) Yeah. No, you feel outnumbered. Your wife is gonna jump you. (audience laughs) You just leave it alone. (audience applauds) Well, all right, all right. (laughs) Welcome to the show. You know who R. Kelly is, don’t ya? (audience murmurs) Okay, well, hold on. (audience laughs) ‘Cause now here we go. Remember R. Kelly’s, one of his girlfriends, her name is Joycelyn Savage, and she posted us about stuff with him and the Bureau paid $25 to get the most, I think it started at $3, then $5, and then $25. Or three, nine, and then 20, we got the deluxe package so we could bring you all the tea. (audience laughs) (Wendy laughs) Well, it turns out she’s sayin’ that she was hacked, it wasn’t even her. Oh. Joycelyn sent a video to TMZ and TMZ’s our friend so we got it from them. Yesterday, she was saying to TMZ that an imposter hacked her account. (audience murmurs) Well, take a look. Please do not believe what you see and hear on social media. That is not my Instagram. It has been said that I have left him and he has abused me and all kinds of nonsense. I have said before none of it is true. I promise you, he is not the person you guys think he is. He’s the best thing that has ever happened to me and Azriel. I talk to him every day and I see him every two weeks. So it’s just really, really, really sad that somebody would pretend to be me, pretend to be me, and put it out in the world and say that I’m a victim, that I am brainwashed, okay? I’m a sex slave. Lord have mercy. It doesn’t get worser than that. (audience laughs)
(audience murmurs) I don’t even know where to go with this. First of all, I don’t believe a word she says. And the worser part is… (audience laughs)
(audience applauds) (audience cheers) Here’s what I believe. What I believe, allegedly, allegedly, or worser, allegedly, (audience laughs) I believe that when she posted and then when we bought that package and then we talked about it here, ’cause you know his team watches, they’re watchin’ us right now as we talk. How you doin’? (audience laughs)
(audience murmurs) Here’s what I think, because his team jumped in her mess and said, what they say, Norman? The lawyer? R. Kelly’s lawyer was like– After we talked about it on Hot Topics here. Yeah, his lawyer said she’s just tryin’ to profit now that R. Kelly’s money has run out. (audience murmurs) Okay. In the meantime, what they did to her, I believe, is offer her a little somethin’ to come back into the fold, you see what I’m sayin’? That’s what I believe. And practice your diction and you know what, (audience applauds) girl… Oh, by the way, Hot Topics, we got the $25 back, didn’t we? Yeah, fully reimbursed. Fully reimbursed. (laughs) (Norman laughs) (audience applauds)
(audience cheers) Yes. And listen here, girl, ’cause your man’s goin’ away to jail and once he goes away to jail, what are you going to do, because you’re gonna, this is my opinion, my opinion, my opinion, I think she’s gonna try to go to We or BET or somethin’ and have a special or a series, and by then, nobody cares. Nobody cares. (audience applauds) Call your mother and father and try to mend that relationship. After all, they were the ones who introduced you to R. Kelly when they knew that R. Kelly married underage Aaliyah. So they knew what they were doin’. So there’s no good comin’ to this whole, I’m done, done. Done. (audience applauds) And every time I say I’m done, there’s more to the story, so I apologize for being repetitive. Ugh. This Jennifer Aniston, right, poor Jen. (audience murmurs) Yeah, I know. Oh Jen. The pretty, blue eyes and that strong chin. (audience laughs) You only catch her smile with her teeth every once in a while. She’s hidin’ somethin’ with a no-tooth smile. When people always smile at you like that, they don’t mean the smile, they’re just forcin’ somethin’. When they smile with all 500 teeth. (audience laughs) Sorry, just sayin’. (laughs) Yeah, look, look on the internet and count how many times you see her show her teeth in a smile. Right, lady in the gray turtle neck in the middle? You’ve observed that by her? Yes. Yes, you’re showing all of your teeth. (audience laughs) Apparently, you’re very happy at this point. (audience applauds) Right now. Yeah, thank you. I mean we don’t always show our teeth all the time but when you know somebody consistently doesn’t show their teeth, there’s somethin’ goin’ on. (audience murmurs) Well, what’s goin’ on with her is that she was named one of the four celebrities as People of the Year, who’ve made an impact. Now, when DJ Boof was, okay, he’s not even there. (audience laughs) Boof, Boof, remember when you were over last night or the night before, and we saw these, no, not like that. (audience laughs) (DJ Boof laughs) Boof has like a fat girl fetish. He likes to see me eat, you know what I mean? (audience laughs)
(DJ Boof laughs) He sits there. Boof, Boof, am I lyin’, Boof? No, I’m not lyin’. No, you’re not lyin’.
What was I doing? I had the wings and the sauce and I’m dippin’ and, the stuff is on my mouth and all you had was a Jolly Rancher, lookin’ at me eat my food. He’s weird. Anyway, so look, Boof, you and I both agreed outta all four of these covers, who’d we say was the most appealing? Jennifer. Yep. I don’t even go that way. But you know what, there’s something about that put on a moisturizer and let the wind blow type of thing. The other woman are not bad lookin’, although this Jennifer Lopez, I’m surprised that Jen Aniston beat her out, in my mind, because who would you rather do? We both agreed. Lopez. Who looks the most beautiful, I’m talkin’ about, ’cause Lopez is hot. I’m not even that girl but you know what I’m saying. You know what I mean? (audience applauds) Suzanne? You don’t have to agree. But Boof and I were sittin’ there and I got the wings and he’s holdin’ the cats with the Jolly Ranchers and we’re watchin’ the TV. And I said, “Boof, Jen Aniston wins hands down.” What do you say? Don’t lie. I’m smiling with my mouth closed. (audience laughs) But give an, yeah, there she is. No, I have to tell you, I think Jennifer, I studied all four of them and Jennifer Aniston looks beautiful, she does. The best out of all four. Because Jennifer Lopez, usually, you see her with less clothes on and she’s hot, but she’s all covered up there. So yes, Jennifer Aniston wins. It’s just somethin’ about the easy-breezy, you know what I mean? (audience applauds) I think she’s beautiful. I don’t think she’s hot though. Like who’d you rather? Oh, Lopez.
Lopez, exactly. Yes, uh-huh.
Exactly. Exactly. (laughs)
Yes, hand down. Hands down (laughs) (audience laughs) Anyway, so Jen told People Magazine, now here’s where the smile is hiding something, here we go. Bring out your violin. (audience murmurs) She says that when she first got started, members of her family told her she wouldn’t make it as an actress. And her father was Victor… Kiriakis.
Kiriakis. Kiriakis. Right, from The Young and the Restless? From Days of our Lives. Days of our Lives. All right, from Days of our Lives. So he was an actor. And her mom was some sort of model. I don’t recognize modelation in that situation but (audience laughs) her mom was a model and her mom used to tell her stuff like straighten your back, put on some makeup. Her mom, Nancy. They’ve always had a rocky relationship. Maybe that’s why she doesn’t show teeth, do you know what I mean? Even though she’s old enough now to get over with it. My parents didn’t encourage my mess. But now, no, please. But now, they’re my biggest fans and we’re thick as thieves. I show teeth when I’m with them, like hi. (laughs) (audience applauds) I’m over it, you know what I’m saying? Part of the great thing about risin’ is when people tell ya you can’t do it, then you go back and you’re like mhm. Now come on, let’s mend this ’cause life is too short. I don’t know what she’s hidin’. All I’m sayin’, it’s a beautiful cover and you can read it and find out more about what’s behind the no-tooth smile. That’s all. (audience applauds) Well, I forgot my next story. Yes, please wake up over there at the teleprompter. (laughs) I have to get reminded where am I going next, otherwise, I’ll just sit here and drink tea. (audience laughs) Cut off Hot Topics. I’ll pull out my own couch and Sandra Bernhard will sit down. I know how to do the show. All right, stay with me, prompter, Bob. All right, so look, there’s this new biopic coming soon to BET and I can’t wait for it. It’s called Uptown. Now listen to me. This is the best invention ever. It’s the making of Uptown Records. If you’re not familiar with Uptown Records, you’re definitely familiar with the artists. First of all, that’s where Puffy interned and then rose to the occasion. Mary J. Blige, Jodeci, Heavy D & The Boyz. Look, it’s a three-part, who? Teddy Riley. Teddy Riley. All of them. They all got birth from Uptown Records, right here in New York. And once upon a time, there was a girl named Wendy and she was hot on the radio. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) All I’m saying is, look, no, look, no, look. Look, no, no, listen, listen, listen. Listen. Listen, listen, listen. And I would like to be, it’s a three-part miniseries. Look, look, look here now. (audience laughs) Look here now, if you’re gonna tell the story the way it’s told, then you need my big mouth as the DJ talkin’ on the radio. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) Right? ‘Cause look, I’ll give you an example. Boom. All right, so you’re drivin’ around town and I’m tellin’ my tales. New York, you know where I’m goin’ with this. All right, I’m tellin’ my tales. All right, there’s this new artist, Mary J Blige, “What’s the 411, Hun?” Yeah, I’m gonna play this in a moment. In the meantime, last night, she was gettin’ lumped up by K-Ci from Jodeci right there, right there in the club. I was right there to see it. And she wears sunglasses. I don’t know what she’s hidin’. Maybe a meat lump behind them too. ‘Cause K-Ci was not physically nice to her but Mary was brand new and took it. And now she’s sayin’ “What’s the 411, Hun?” Okay, right now on 98.7 Kiss FM. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) You know what I mean? All right, New York, I’m about to get off the radio. I’m gonna change into my cheering costume. I gotta go up to BMCC. There’s a celebrity basketball game put on by Puff. Uh-huh. New York, clap if you remember what I’m talkin’ about. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) Okay. I was supposed to be a cheerleader at this basketball game. I was givin’ away tickets on my show. Puff came on, we promoted it and the whole bit. So my shift is about to end. People are drivin’ up there, they’re listenin’ to me say it’s gonna be good, it’s gonna be lit. Or they didn’t say lit back then. (audience laughs) It’s gonna be on fire. Look, look, look. I get up there with my intern, Skeletor, right? All we see are cop cars and ambulances. I was like okay, (makes a car screeching sound) (audience laughs) nope. Next morning, I open up the Daily News and what do I see? A stampede, doors were locked, people died, the whole bit. At this basketball game. It was so on fire and they did not reject people. They shoved ’em in, shovin’ ’em in and shovin’ ’em in and shovin’ ’em in and shovin’ em. And all the Uptown artists were, look, I know stuff. All right, I don’t wanna be a part of it. How about that? But I will be watching. Uptown will premier on BET in 2020. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) The doors were locked. People were tryin’ to get out. People were inside like… (puffs airs) (audience laughs) Oh God. (audience laughs) (audience applauds) Ow, now my leg is asleep. Dammit man. Oh, it’s better than being stampeded though, ow. Look, I wanna shout out to our friend Common. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) Are you really dating Tiffany Haddish? She hasn’t said anything to me about that but that’s not what we’re talkin’ about. Common’s a good guy. I like him. I find him very inspirational and good for our people. Anyway. (audience applauds) Common has teamed up with our friends at Burlington stores for their 13th Annual Coat Drive. This is a really great thing. (audience applauds) No, I’m gonna tell you how you can get in on this. He donated coats to the Burlington store in his hometown of the Chi, hi Chi, Chicago. When you donate a coat or any coats that you have, I mean it’s that time of year, we’re cleaning out our closets and stuff. Listen, donate them to any Burlington store near you and you’re gonna help someone in your community stay warm, and you’ll also get 10% off your entire purchase at Burlington. (audience applauds) If you like to shop on a budget like me, go to Burlington for the perfect holiday gifts for everyone. And on that note, (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) remember, big savings for the holiday at Burlington, for the prices that you love. And we’ve got more great show for you everybody. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) Sandra Bernhard is here. So grab a snack and come on back. (dance music) (audience cheers)
