Wendy Williams just got back on air and she already has a feud. The talk show host attacked Howard Stern and the radio legend went ballistic on her for a full 40 minutes.
On Wednesday, Wendy laid into Stern and his new book, claiming he went Hollywood.
“Howard is so Hollywood right now. And Howard, I love you, but since you’ve gone Hollywood, everything that you say is so predictable. Every story is going to be about, ‘Oh, I love this one, and then we went on their yacht.’ He’s a Hollywood insider now, which sucks because you started like me, being of the people,” she said.
She added, “But at some point, you sat behind the microphone for too long and now you are the people.”
Who knew Wendy was “of the people?” Watch the clip below at 21-minute mark:
Stern unleashed a brutal assault on Wendy on his Sirius XM show on Friday morning.
“Jealous bitch. … You are nobody to me,” Stern said. “You’ll never be me, Wendy. You’ll never be me. You can pretend to be me, you can pretend to be like me, but you’re not. You don’t have my wit and you don’t have my talent. … You couldn’t have that career. You’re a fly.”
The 65-year-old also said, “What have I done to this woman? Nothing. I’ve been gracious to her. Worry about your husband, not me. … F**k you and your dumb show and your mystery illness. She disappears for two months, nobody knows why, and now she’s questioning me? Thanks, honey. … I never fainted on my show either.”
He didn’t stop there.
“I’m not somebody you want to f**k with, honey. I don’t want to hear your bulls**t. And you’re not a nice person,” Stern said. “Nobody likes you, that’s why you can’t go Hollywood. People do not like her. [The staff] was doing a dance over at ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ when she was out. She’s a big pain in the ass. I hate to break the news to you, honey. Good thing you hurried back.”
Listen below, the language is brutal.
Williams vanished from her show in December. Love B. Scott exclusively reported that although the chat fest was renewed through 2020, the future of the show beyond that season was uncertain and that “concerns over Wendy’s health are clouding chances for any further renewal.”
In addition, the site said it received a cease and desist letter from Wendy’s lawyers, asking to remove the story that her husband had another woman pregnant and she was filing for divorce. The letter stated, “Mrs. Wendy Williams-Hunter and Mr. Kevin Hunter categorically deny each and every allegation made by your ‘sources’, even if not specifically enumerated herein.”
The letter was a bizarre twist considering the daytime TV diva has made a career out of talking about other people.
Love B. Scott also claimed Williams was struggling with self-medicating. Radar Online wrote that Wendy can “barely stand at times” and her friends said there’s a “major problem.”
After a series of guest hosts, Williams returned at the beginning of this month. We’ll see if Wendy responds to Howard Stern’s clap back.
