(audience applauds) (deep bass music) (Wendy clears throat) There’s something terrible going on. We love you, Wendy. I love you more, thank you. Thank you for being here. You look gorgeous. Well, I feel like I was put together to look– (audience laughs) Beautiful. I feel beautiful. Yeah. Thank you, thank you. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) (Wendy laughs)
(audience laughs) There’s something horrible going on in the kingdom of celebrity, and we must talk. Britney Spears has two sons. One is 14 and one is 13. Well, the 13-year-old went on Instagram Live last night. Oh. Co-hosts, don’t clap if you don’t mean it. Clap if you know about this. (couple of audience members applauds) Okay, only two, all right. Then let me put you onto the game. And you only know ’cause we saw it together. That’s my niece over there in my mother’s chair. Okay? (audience applauds) This is the real news, Alex. You might work for ABC Miami with your stories of fires and robberies and other stuff. But this is the news. Pay attention, pay attention. Where’s Travis? He’s backstage. Oh, he didn’t wanna come out after all? Look, I have one niece and one nephew and I treasure them both. They’re both in their 20s. I’m a mess but they’re messier. (audience laughs) And all I can be is Aunt Wen. Aw. Yeah, uh-huh. (audience applauds) Anyhow, here’s the real news. So he went on Instagram Live last night and talked about his parents. (audience murmurs) His grandfather he called the D word, ending with a K, that’s a man’s private part. Oh. Let me tell you somethin’ about this little disrespectful 13-year-old, and that’s that age that we’ve all been 13. But what do you do with a kid at this point? He called his father, I can’t even say it so I’ll just say Heyzeus. Como estas? (audience laughs) To my Spanish friends. Yeah, he called his father Heyzeus. (whispers) Jesus. Yeah. Mhm, mhm. Jesus. Talked about his mom, like he loves his mom, but he talked about his mom in a wobbly way, like I’m not so sure about Mom but I’ll always love her, which made me feel just weird, you know what I mean? (audience murmurs) Suzanne? Yeah. I see Heyzeus. What’s that? Yeah, over there? Uh-huh.
Uh-huh. I see him too. Wow, your hair is really beautiful. Yeah, no, it’s gorgeous. Yeah. It’s gorgeous, it’s gorgeous. How you doin’? (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) Uh-huh, mhm, mhm.
Beautiful. Mhm, mhm, mhm. Before I play you this, by the way, I’m sorry I’m distracted, I always am. Why is my Governor Murphy over in Jersey, now I feel so horrible because he’s got the thing on his kidney and he’s getting operated on today, but where’s he gettin’ the operation? New York. Not in Jers. He’s gettin’ it right here in New York. Governor Murphy, you’re the Governor, and from what I understand, Norman, you were explaining, all of his doctors are in New York. Mhm. I don’t care. Right. I don’t care. If you’re the Governor, you’re the king of Jersey, I’m the queen. (audience laughs) Yeah. (laughs) In my mind, in my mind.
Right, right. Although I don’t live there anymore ’cause neither does love and my doctors, now, if had a operation, it’d be done right over here. I have no reason to go there, except for a good, old lunchtime procedure with my… (audience laughs) I mean she’s the best. But look, so he’s getting his operation here in New York. Now Jersey, I don’t know how you feel about this. I feel aways. You couldn’t go to Saint Barnabas? You couldn’t go to some of those good healthcare, clap if you’re from Jersey. (a few audience members applauds) All right, like five of us. (audience laughs) Clap if you’re offended. (very little audience applauds) You’re not? All right, no, all of, not just Jersey, clap if you’re offended. (some audience applauds) Well, I wish him well. I just wish that he woulda found one of the great doctors in Jersey, the great hospital facilities, the whole bit. You coulda gotten done in Jersey to really give your heart up to the Garden State. (audience applauds) Wow. Hi Jers. No, love. I’m a cancer and I’m from Jers, no matter what happens. (audience applauds) Yeah, that’s me. Back to Britney. No, you all always try to test me to see if I’m gonna forget somethin’. (audience laughs) I forget a lot but I don’t forget much. Did you know Uncle Fester is who Corey was talkin’ about? (gasps) What? Coogan, Jackie Coogan. Jackie Coogan was on The Little Rascals but I was like no, I know that name for something else, I know that name for something else. I think that was Uncle Fester from The Addams Family. Mhm, Jackie Coogan was part of The Kid too. I don’t want any parts of that. (laughs) Corey was a fabulous guest. Yeah, he was great. (audience applauds) He was so giving. And thank you, New York Post, for puttin’ that in this morning and thank you to people who acknowledge that he was a great guest. And thank you to people who were watching that said wow, more power to him. Anyway, Corey, but back to Britney, okay? (audience laughs) So Britney’s son talked about whether or not his mother will ever do music again. By the way, Hot Topics got sick of this after about 17 minutes but there was more footage to go. Probably. But you all walked outta the room. (laughs) Right. All right, take a look at this 13-year-old, mhm. what happened to you? I asked her “Mom, what happened to your music?” and she was like, “I don’t know, honey, “I think I might just quit it.” I’m like, “What, what are you saying? “Do you know how much bank you make off of that stuff?” Will you get in trouble for doing this? No. I mean my dad doesn’t care. I have the best dad ever. My dad’s literally Jesus. What’s going on with my mom? I’ll tell you guys the whole story for my mom and stuff if I get 5,000 followers. (audience murmurs) Time out. Time out? You mean get out. (audience laughs) Get out. (audience applauds) I really don’t know what to say regarding that. I don’t like to bash kids but he’s actin’ like an adult. He wants your $5,000. He’s also got a YouTube channel that he wants you to tune in on. He needs more followers and he needs money to tell his mom’s story. What are you talkin’ about, kid? (audience murmurs) You didn’t hear the part where he called his grandfather a D. That was to me the most hurtful part ’cause Jamie has done nothing but just try to take care of his daughter and the family and the whole bit and maybe the 13-year-old was upset because I think a month or two ago, we talked about it on Hot Topics, the grandfather, Jamie, came to blows with the 14-year-old. The 14-year-old. But when they pop off, sometimes if Grandpa has got a good left hook… (audience laughs)
(audience applauds) (Wendy clears throat) This is just a horrible story. It’s very disrespectful. It insinuates that Mom is not well. Something that we already know, but we’re down with Britney. But Britney doesn’t need this extra string on her worry board bag. Right, right. (laughs) All right, let’s move along. (clears throat) (audience applauds) (audience laughs) Stevie J (audience murmurs) (audience laughs) is calling out Love & Hip Hop: Miami glam squad. Now I don’t know who you all are that put the girls together but Stevie says the ladies wear bad weaves and bad makeup. (audience gasps) Now look here, look here. First of all, Stevie, and you know I love you, but this is not a man’s business. Now you sit down. (audience applauds) Sit down. Stevie’s all like, he tweeted, he tweeted this. He’s like “Ladies need to retire laced front “from Love & Hip Hop: Miami except PM.” Now PM is Madonna. PreMadonna.
PreMadonna, mhm. “Fire hair and makeup immediately. “Have our beautiful sisters looking nuts out here.” You know what, Stevie, (audience murmurs) I’ll call ya later. (audience laughs) Then Trick Daddy jumps in. (audience murmurs) No, no, no, hold on now, ’cause Trick was walkin’ but then got all the way into the camera. (audience laughs) Trick is an OG from back in the day. He’s scared of nothin’. Hi Trick. Trick Daddy says he didn’t like Stevie J’s comments and here’s what he had to say. Take a look. How dare you (beep) get on social media and you comment about girls from Miami on Love & Hip Hop: Miami. Now it’s gettin’ personal. That means you a girl dog. The next girl dog say somethin’, I’m gonna slap (beep) at you like you a bitch. You hear me, boy? (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) Well apparently, Stevie saw this and he later clarified with his tweet. Take a look. I said what I said earlier in hopes to get the attention of the executives who’s handlin’ our hair and makeup for our beautiful Latina and black women. And men for that matter. Listen, my job here is done. I’m sure y’all’ll be lookin’ awesome. (audience laughs) Stevie’s that guy you wanna hate. You know what I’m sayin’? But I gotta tell you, being like a regular, all right, maybe twice a month we talk, but in my phone, he’s charming. Not for me. He’s charming, you know what I’m saying? But Stevie, mm-mm, mm-mm. This is none of your business. And Meek Mill, by the way, did this a few years ago, talkin’ about he wants women to stop, well, now here’s his new thing, stop twerking. (audience murmurs) Well, I agree. I don’t understand what’s goin’ on out here. Why does everything have to start with a dance move? (audience murmurs) You understand. (laughs) He tweeted, “Twerking is like,” listen to this, “a guy with a big of stack of money “hangin’ out of his pockets so everyone can see. “I’m tired of seein’ all that bleep.” Well, maybe because he’s not with Nicki anymore ’cause he probably liked it back then. I don’t know. But I do agree. Other than here, Suzanne, you know what I’m sayin’? If we didn’t have twerking, there would be no Wendy Williams Show here.” No, no, no, no. No. We need the twerking. We love it. We like the twerk, we like the full splits. We like death drops. As a matter of fact, would anybody like to examine, can somebody twerk now? Can somebody pull up to an aisle then get in the aisle? Oh. Marco, Marco, Marco. Go, go. (audience applauds) Get up. Marco. Marco Go up there, grab ’em out, have ’em walk, come on, let’s go. Come on. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) Okay, oh, it’s her. All right, it was a man at first. Okay, both of ’em, let’s have a twerk off. Let me tell you somethin’ around here. All right. I’ll do the music. Three, two, one, and. (vocalizes dance music) (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) Uh-huh. Thank you all. All right, thank you, you guys. (audience cheers)
(audience applauds) See Alex, that’s the news. (audience laughs) This is the news. Not tornadoes and what you do. I mean that’s important, but that right there is levity. Yeah. (audience applauds) Okay, so Marco’s wearing a Knicks jersey. It’s bringing me to my friend, Charles Oakley, who I talked to this morning regarding Spike Lee. I’m totally on Spike Lee’s side. You all know this story. Is that why you’re wearin’ the jersey? Yeah. Like what are you doing? So Spike, in case you haven’t heard, he went to a Knicks game. The Knicks are a horrible team this year but if you’re a Knicks fan, then you ride with them. Spike has been a ticket season holder for 28 years. 28 years. So he went to MSG, Madison Square Garden, on Monday and he was blocked from using the employee entrance that he’s been using for all 28 years. Oh. There’s a VIP entrance. He didn’t use that. But a VIP entrance is like if me and you went to a game. We might be a V and an I and a P but we’re not that special. Special is when you invest in the tickets and ride with the team whether they win or they lose. Spike Lee is different from the rest of all the Knicks fans. Rambo, would you agree? He’s a different kinda dude. You don’t care? (audience laughs) I care. I see both sides of this. I don’t. (audience laughs) Marco? Yes. Do you understand what I’m saying? Marco, if you and I went to see the Knicks, we’re just going. We can go through the VIP entrance. That’s it, that’s where everybody goes. But Spike Lee? Yeah, he’s like the seventh man. Isn’t that what they call it in basketball? Sixth/seventh, yeah. Oh, whatever. (audience laughs) The sixth man. (laughs) (audience applauds) Right? 100%. All right, take a look and then I’m gonna tell you what I talked to Oak about. Go ahead. But no one told me. No one told me. No one told me. I’m staying here. Now if you wanna arrest me like Charles Oakley then that. Oh you gonna arrest me, like you wanna shove my hands on my back like Oakley? (audience murmurs) So I agree with Spike. I’m sorry that he had to yell and argue like that. I don’t like to see them do that and I don’t really know Spike Lee like that. I’ve heard that Spike is a jerk a lotta times. I don’t know him like that other than I interviewed him when I was in radio days and he was standoffish, shall we say. But the point is, he’s made a lotta stuff that we all like, and Spike loves the Knicks. And the idea that they had him wanna go outside, go around the block and come through another entrance after 28 years rockin’ with this team that’s not winnin’. (audience laughs) Are you serious? (audience murmurs) So I called Oak this morning. When I woke up and I’m still seein’ it on the news this morning, I’m like all right, he mentioned Oakley in it. You know, our friend, Charles Oakley. (audience murmurs) So Oak is a Knicks legend and I called Oak. Oak was in the car already on his way to ESPN so he’s soundin’ off about this all day long. They tried to peg Oak for being a drunk, threw him out, banned him from MSG forever. Look, this is where the security’s draggin’ Oak out and Oak is like what the hell’s goin’ on. Anyway, I think that’s it. Is there anything else that I forgot to say about that? No, your mic is not working. Oh. Yeah, no, that’s pretty much it. So poor Spike Lee. Yeah. You know what I forgot to mention to you, ’cause I get out here and I tell you a story and sometimes I leave off bullet points and then I get home and I’m like damn, I forgot to say that part. Remember when I was telling you the other day I went shopping with two girlfriends. We went to the department store and I did say that I bought a negligee and we had a nice time and we had lunch and it was real nice. Then I said that I was told that we were followed by security. The part about that, this is probably the most important part because now, it’s gotten pickup and I’m just like okay, let me explain this on Hot Topics. I can’t even type this through the Instagram ’cause I told you, I gave it up for lent. You all figure out social media on your own around here. I’m not, no. Let me tell you something. We were in the store. I hadn’t been in that particular department store in 20 years. The reason why is because first of all, that was BF, I mean BS, before surgery. Or somethin’. No, actually, no, I had a little somethin’ done but the point is, I’m always gonna be a big girl. They took me immediately to the big girl department and I felt intense security around me in this store. And I said not only don’t I like this neighborhood, I don’t like this store, I’m not goin’ back there. I hadn’t been back there in 20 years. My two girlfriends from out of town wanted to go there and I’m like okay. All right. All right, I’ll meet you there. It was just a in, out, done. We get to the store. Totally different atmosphere. I felt no hot breath on my neck. We each had our own salespeople. ‘Cause you know how I like to lean on a man to teeter? I had my teeterer (audience laughs) ’cause I asked. I was like “Come over here, come on. “Come on, let’s go on the escalator “’cause if it stops fast, you’ll break my fall,” and like that. And we had lunch, shopped, treated really well. I even asked for a few freebies ’cause I’m the girl with the nerve to do that. I’m spendin’ this, all right, well, I want that for nothin’. But you know what they do, they bundle it up and put it in the bag. When we got out to the sidewalk, all three of us had three different car services, mine to take me back to my apartment, theirs to take them wherever they were going. But they had their three, mine arrived first. The girls walked me out to the sidewalk. I got my bags, I get in the car, booty on the seat in the car, right. We’re hugging and cheek kissing, saying goodbye, and one of them says, “You realize we were followed the whole time?” Yeah, that’s the part I left out in my story. ‘Cause a lotta you all were like, well, Wendy, if you say you were followed, why did you buy anything, and I’m like ’cause I didn’t know anything about that. And furthermore, there are some people who have their eyes on that kinda stuff. When you’re born brown, it’s just a natural thing that you don’t want to understand, but I’m smart enough to understand when I was treated graciously. When I tell you gracious, I’ll go back there. Today maybe. (audience laughs)
(audience applauds) So that’s the story. I didn’t feel any of that, I didn’t see any followin’. Sometimes, when you’re used to the followization of life, that’s all you can think about, if you know what I’m saying. But no, Suzanne?
Mhm. Does that make sense? Yes, it does make sense. You had a lovely time there, mhm. Lovely.
And looked lovely. After 20 years ’cause I went in there with the squinty eye, like okay, what’s goin’ on around here? Uh-huh. Left like ebullient. Only to get double kisses on the cheek, talkin’ about we were followed. I said, “I didn’t feel any of that. “I don’t know what you all are talkin’ about.” You all are reading that all, this whole Me Too, Kid Too thing, Racism Too and all that stuff, it hasn’t changed much but it’s changed a few things. Nortman, does that make sense? It makes sense. All right, well, I’m being cut off. (Norman laughs) Hot Topics is officially over. Aw. No, no, no, no, no, no, no ’cause something is about to happen and I am in for it. Have you ever had the glazed donuts with the chicken in the middle? (audience murmurs) (audience laughs) Have you ever had tea with cheese in it? (audience murmurs) But I’ll try. Have you ever had the most delicious-looking sundae situation ever with ice cream? (audience murmurs) Well, these are the things that my friend Foodgod has, and he’s coming up next. (audience applauds) So grab no snack, eat with me through the TV and come on back. (audience cheers)
