wendy williams beyonceLoud-mouthed talk show diva, Wendy Williams, is known for her irreverent, no-holds barred take on celebrities, but when she tackled the intelligence — or lack thereof — of reigning R&B diva, Beyonce, the reaction was not quite what she expected.

The Huffington Post reports:

Seconds after declaring herself a fan of the singer, talk show host Wendy Williams went on to diss the singer, effectively calling her dumb. While talking about Beyoncé’s upcoming self-directed HBO documentary about her life, Williams slammed Bey:

“I am a Beyonce fan. I’m gonna watch her upcoming documentary because fortunately one of the TVs in our kitchen has closed captioning so I’ll be able to understand what she says. You know Beyonce can’t talk. She sounds like she has a fifth grade education.”

The studio audience booed in response to Williams and she got a little defensive:

“Excuse me, I just said I was a fan. But we have to call a spade a spade.”

Beyonce’s less than stellar grammar seems to be a recurring criticism for the ‘Run The World’ songstress, whose letter to First Lady Michelle Obama garnered harsh responses and even laughter. When she was honored with an award from the National Association of Black Journalists, the jaws of serious wordsmiths around the nation collectively hit the floor.

Still, she is one of the most celebrated and accomplished  women in the world —  and that is something that can be respected.

As for Wendy, well, she’s just being Wendy. It’s surprising that anyone is surprised by anything that she says.
