Celebs Who Can't Stand Wendy Williams

Wendy Williams has been dishing out celebrity gossip long before "spilling tea" was a part of the pop culture lexicon. The shock jockette dominated the radio waves with her blunt criticism and alleged first-hand knowledge of the inner workings of the industry. Ruffling the feathers of her unsuspecting targets garnered her positive recognition and accolades, including a 2009 induction into the Radio Hall of Fame. in 2008, she parlayed her success on the radio waves into a nationally syndicated program, The Wendy Williams Show, and although she revels in her reputation as the industry's mean girl, she's had no shortage of guests who've lined up to appear on her talk show. 

But she's also managed to make a few enemies in the industry, and her penchant for always saying it like she means it has come at a cost. The brazen gossip queen, who can throw shade like no other, has feuded with some of the biggest names in the entertainment world. Here are some of the celebs who can't stand Wendy Williams.

Blac Chyna went for the jugular

Back when things were all peachy-keen between Blac Chyna and her then-fiancé Rob Kardashian, no one was more fixated on their relationship than Wendy Williams. During the first few minutes of a November 2016 episode, Williams criticized the couple's union, saying it was obvious that Blac Chyna "came from the pole" and was using Kardashian for money and notoriety. "Her come-up is she runs into this guy, and she's taking full advantage of everything so, I'm glad she's not my kin, it's very fun to watch. She and her mom, Tokyo Toni, come off the backs of people who don't see through their ruse ... Oh, she's not attracted to [Kardashian]," stated the brusque talk show host. 

Her audience was rendered speechless, but no one was more ticked off than Blac Chyna herself. She fired back in a since-deleted Instagram post (via People). "Wendy.. Wendy.. Wendy....you lost your motherf*****g mind h*e? How dare you speak on me, my fiancé, and my mom like you were at the Christmas table with us?! I find it so funny how you love to talk about Rob and his insecurities like at a point in time you wasn't a fat 400 pound a*s b***h on the radio!" she wrote.

Game, set, match!

Kim Zolciak calls her behavior 'absolutely appalling'

While competing on Dancing with the Stars in 2015, Bravo TV star Kim Zolciak suffered a mini stroke. She later underwent heart surgery and was forced to bow out of the dancing competition. Williams discussed Zolciak's health scare during her Hot Topics segment, and the shade empress expressed some doubts about Zolciak's condition. "Kim, at 37 years old, if you did have a mini stroke, I'm sorry to hear about that. If, however, you just wanted to get off Dancing with the Stars, all you had to do was just stub your toe," Williams said (via People). She implied that Zolciak wanted to drop out of the competition in order to escape her allegedly insufferable dance partner, Tony Dovolani. Williams was also paired up with Dovolani when she appeared on the show in 2011 and said she also "wanted to get off" the program to avoid doing the tango with him. 

When Zolciak heard about Williams' comments, she posted a copy of an email the talk show had sent her in which they requested she call in to discuss her health incident via a live Skype interview. Zolciak wrote in an Instagram caption: "Absolutely appalling!! @wendywilliams how disgusting for you to insinuate I 'faked' my mini stroke on your show this morning!! You mad cause I didn't come on your show! This clearly shows your warped mentality!!"

Lil' Kim went no holds barred

Let's face it, Lil' Kim's appearance has done a complete 180 in recent years. Whatever the rapper's reason is for altering her appearance is her own business, and she doesn't have to answer to anyone. However, Williams didn't get the memo, and decided to criticize the "How Many Licks" rapper during an episode of her talk show. "Kim, in my mind, I knew your goal was always to look like La Toya Jackson," Williams said (via MTV). "You've out-La Toya'd La Toya in your new look. Don't blame Photoshopping, blame your plastic surgeon, girl." Yikes! To make the situation even worse, Williams' Twitter account posted a link to the show's segment while tagging Lil' Kim in the post to get the rapper's attention.

Well, if it was attention Williams was looking for, she certainly got it. Lil' Kim clapped back in a tweet of her own. "@WendyWilliams Stop hating on me because U sucked [The Notorious B.I.G.'s] d**k & he didn't want nothing to do with yo a*s after that," she wrote. In case you forget, Lil' Kim was involved in a turbulent relationship with the late rapper. Is it possible he spilled to the Queen Bee about an alleged intimate encounter he had with Williams? We may never know, and we're sure this is one hot topic Williams won't be touching with a 10-foot pole. 

Will Smith rapped, 'I'm not your punchin' bag'

Wendy Williams and Will Smith have been having brutal tête à têtes with each other for years. Their beef is so ancient, it's hard to pinpoint exactly when it started cooking. We do know that Smith gave the talk show host a shout out in his 2003 song, "Mr. Niceguy," when he rapped: Wendy Williams, you don't know me / I'm not your punchin bag, you gon' blow me / Off, girl, better leave me alone / Before I buy your radio station and send you home." Williams addressed both the lyrics and other artists who have blasted her in their music by telling The Hollywood Reporter, "Without those song mentions, I might not be on TV right now." Touché. 

In 2013, Williams made an outlandish allegation against Smith, who's been married to actress Jada Pinkett since 1997, by insinuating the Men in Black star was "how you doinnn'?' — which is Williams' way of alluding to someone being, uh, more than just friends. The allegation came after photos of Smith vacationing in Brazil with his best friend, actor Duane Martin, were published online. Williams suggested that Smith and Martin were sharing a hotel room together.

At this point, it appears that Smith is using the age-old method of ignoring Williams in hopes that she'll just go away.

LeAnn Rimes' mama was ticked off

LeAnn Rimes talked to Shape magazine about cheating on her ex-husband, Dean Sheremet, and finding love with her manstress and now-husband, actor Eddie Cibrian. "I understand why people are disappointed in me, especially since I grew up as America's sweetheart. I think any relationship is hard to get out of, and I don't think the way I did it was right," she said.

"It's all very sloppy," Williams apparently said in response to the magazine feature, according to The Huffington Post. The talk show queen also criticized Rimes for referring to Cibrian's two sons from his previous marriage as her "boys." Williams reportedly quipped, "The boys have a mother, and her name is Brandi [Glanville]."

After the show aired, Rimes sounded off in a since-deleted tweet. "All I know is Wendy Williams done pissed my mamma off! I don't wanna be in her path...To say, 'I've reserved myself a place in hell?!' I'm incredibly disappointed to see someone with that kind of platform use it for such negativity and could be so mean and judgmental about a situation they know nothing about." 

To be clear, Williams never mentioned the country songstress and "hell" in the same sentence. It was, in fact, television personality Sunny Hostin that reportedly banished Rimes to purgatory. The singer later apologized but never addressed Williams calling her affair a "sloppy" situation, so we think it's safe to assume they aren't BFFs.

Mariah Carey didn't take kindly to being called 'fragile'

When Wendy Williams claimed a birdie told her that Lee Daniels, the creator of Fox's show Empire, said Mariah Carey was too "fragile" and unready to appear on her reality show, Mariah's World, a brand new feud was ignited, according to BuzzFeed.

Daniels and Carey appeared side by side in a video posted to Twitter. The audio of Daniels saying "I'm the b***h that's fragile, okay?" is looped and Carey can be seen jokingly giving him a swift kick to the butt. The caption of the video reads: "He's the b***h that's fragile! Don't come 4 us unless we call for u," and it ended with a plug to the "Butterfly" singer's E! reality show. That clap back wasn't the first time Carey blasted Williams. She also mentions the TV personality by name in her song, "Touch My Body," when she sings: "Because they be all up in my bidness like a Wendy interview." 

Although Carey has an impressive shoe closet that's to die for, don't expect nary a pair to grace Williams' infamous Shoe Cam anytime soon.

Azealia Banks threatened to sue

Azealia Banks has feuded with everyone, from Iggy Azalea to Cardi B, and she has added Wendy Williams to her list of verbal sparring opponents. It all started after rapper Remy Ma leaked text messages reportedly sent from Banks, in which the rapper shared her desire to get some work done below the belt. While discussing the situation during a taping of her show (via Vibe), Williams reportedly said, "Now we understand how [Banks] gets her money...She's got no kids and she's 26, with a vaginal rejuvenation? Wow. She works hard for her money."

The rapper caught wind of Williams' allegation and crafted a since-deleted Instagram post to threaten legal action. "TOUGH AS STEEL... Wendy is getting sued top of 2018," Banks reportedly wrote. It wouldn't be the first time someone filed suit against Williams. Blac Chyna's mom, Tokyo Toni, filed a $1 million lawsuit against the gossipmonger and her show's producers for defamation, slander, and harassment, according to The Blast. Perhaps she can add Banks as a co-plaintiff and they can split any winnings.

50 Cent refuses to let it go

Perhaps Wendy Williams picked the wrong target when she decided to speak out against Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson's parenting skills. During an October 2017 episode, she criticized the rapper for announcing in a since-deleted Instagram post (via The Shade Room) that he would celebrate his son Marquise's 21st birthday by throwing a "child support release party." 

"I don't care that you didn't grow up with a father and that your mom — whatever happened, you know, when you were eight and that you were shot nine times — you're 42, you got a 21-year-old son, you know, get your life!" Williams said.

In retaliation, the hot-headed rapper took to his Instagram to post a series of unflattering shots of Williams, including one post that compared her to The Beast from the late-1980s TV show, Beauty and the Beast. In another post, he shared a picture of the talk show host wearing a bikini. The caption read: "Wendy Williams just told me to get my life together, smh your husband is not a bad man. He deserve [sic] a side chick for talking to you, you ugly motherf****r Focus on your own s**t b***h." He has continued to roast her on social media, which is proof that he won't be waving the white flag any time soon. 

Paris Jackson wants her to seek a psychiatrist

Wendy Williams used her Twitter account to do her dirty work once again. This time, she had her sights set on the Jackson family. Her social media account posted a link to her Hot Topics segment, where she discussed gossip pertaining to Michael Jackson's son, Prince Michael Jackson II, also known as "Blanket." Williams claimed she heard it through the grapevine that the late-singer's daughter, Paris Jackson, had "reportedly complained that Blanket was raising himself." She also bashed Paris' Rolling Stone magazine cover shoot (via Us Weekly) by saying, "She has not made her mark on her own..You cannot be on the cover of one of the most prestigious entertainment and influential magazines in the world and just be the daughter of and tell your story inside."

Paris responded in a since-deleted tweet: "Your obsession is a little unhealthy, maybe even toxic," she said, noting that there are "plenty of qualified professional psychiatrists you can seek out" for help. Oh, snap. Who's bad?

Holly Robinson-Peete knows 'positivity' isn't her thing

While discussing how much of a bad idea it would be for fashion guru Victoria Beckham and her husband, former footballer David Beckham, to star in their own reality series, Williams dragged TV personality Holly Robinson-Peete into the mix to get her point across (via E! News). While chatting about Robinson-Peete's 2016 OWN reality series, For Peete's Sake, Williams stated, "Holly's got the cute kids with [her husband]. They've been married forever, but I don't think people care...That's sad for us, for TV watchers. Not for people who try to keep it together and be family and be good examples. That's all."

Well, Robinson-Peete wasn't happy about that comment at all! She took to her Twitter and penned an open letter to the audacious mouthpiece. "Dear @WendyWilliams #ForPeetesSake is resonating deeply [especially with] special needs #autism families. I know positivity isn't ur thing but it's OK." Ouch!
