Live from New York City, it’s the Wendy Williams Show. How you doin’? (upbeat music) ♪ Feel it, feel it, feel it ♪ ♪ Come on, you need it ♪ ♪ Say it like you mean it ♪ ♪ Just shout it out ♪ (upbeat music) Now, here’s Wendy! (audience cheers) Hello. (woman chuckles) Thanks for watching. Say hello to my co-hosts, my studio audience. How you doin’? How you doin’? I’m doing okay. Let’s get started. It’s time for… Hot Topics! Yup! (audience cheers)
(upbeat music) Hi. Did you watch TV last night prior to going to bed? Clap if you watched the BET Awards. (audience cheers) (audience laughs) Clap if you watched Lyrica and A1 (audience cheers)
and Hip Hop Hollywood. (audience laughs) Clap if you watched The Connors. (audience cheers) Clap if you watched the inside of your eyelids. (audience cheers) (woman laughs) You are my people. (audience laughs) I didn’t watch The Connors. I didn’t wanna know, but I saw what all was going on. It premiered last night. This is the episode where they had to off Rosanne. They killed her off. Take a look. They think that she must’ve taken the pills right before bed, and with her health issues, it was enough to stop her breathing. It doesn’t make any sense. I got her knees fixed, I flushed all her pills. Oh my God. I found these pills in mom’s closet. These aren’t even prescribed to her. She got them from Marcy Bellinger. Damn. That’s the only thing from mom’s closet that I wanted. (audience laughs) (woman laughs) Viewers were split. 50% of people said that they loved how Rosanne was offed but that they’re here for the show, and the other 50% said no. It’s not gonna work without Rosanne. Me, I just wanna know, why is Rosanne tweeting about this? I thought you were going to Israel. (audience laughs)
Isn’t that what you told us? You’re going to Israel for the whole season, you’re not gonna watch the show, and you’re gonna stay off Twitter, about the show. Apparently she’s not in Israel, (audience laughs) and after the show, she tweeted, “I ain’t dead bitches.” (audience laughs) (audience claps) She also said that ABC didn’t have to morbidly kill her off in such a way for a family show, but I think that ABC did the right thing. Rosanne, you’re the one who set yourself up to be a pill popper. You were there. She hurt her back or her knee or whatever, and your character on the show was doctor shopping getting different doctors from various places. There were pills found all over the house, but last night was a whole cry fest. Jackie balled. Jackie balled, John Goodman balled, they were all balling. (audience laughs) I didn’t wanna ball. (audience laughs) I don’t care. (audience laughs) (audience claps) But if you do, don’t forget, every Tuesday night The Connors airs. Maybe it’ll get more happy now that we’re done with the elephant in the room so to speak. Maybe it’ll get more happy. (audience laughs) Can you believe that our country is reduced to a President having a Twitter war with a porn star? (audience groans) Honey. He called her a horse face. (audience gasps) She wasn’t a horse face on those nights, was she? (audience claps) It started yesterday because the President bragged about his legal victory over Stormy Daniels. He tweeted, hold on. Oh God. This is so stupid. I can’t believe that this is what we’re reduced to. You got a victory man and you’re still barking up the wrong tree. Oh not this one? (audience laughs) Sorry. “Great, now I can go after horse face and her 3rd rate lawyer in the great state of Texas. She knows nothing about me, a total con.” (audience hums) Well she knows enough about you to know that you’re a tiny whiny. (audience laughs) (audience claps) Within one hour, she clapped back and here’s what she said. “Ladies and gentleman, may I present your President. In addition to his shortcomings, (audience gasps) he also has demonstrated his incompetence, hatred of women and lack of self-control on Twitter again. Game on, Tiny.” (audience cheers) At this point, Stormy’s got nothing to lose. By the way, she’s gotta pay, the judge ordered her to pay his legal fees. Exactly. That’s a whole lot of twerking that you’re gonna have to do Stormy. (audience laughs) That’s a lot. Ow! (audience laughs) I can’t believe he’s so immature though. He called her a horse face. I don’t think that she was wrong in calling him tiny. (audience laughs) He’s the one who should have a more dignified presence. (audience laughs) On another note, Donald left Melania in the rain. (audience laughs)
We showed you this. (audience laughs) Just selfish. You don’t understand. Watch what happens. When they finally do get a piece of the umbrella. Oh you stopped it before. She gets the part that drips down. (audience laughs) You know when the umbrella, the drip down? But Meghan Markle was happy to hold the umbrella for Harry. He was doing a press conference or something like that and she’s holding the umbrella for him. (audience claps) And she’s holding the baby for him as well. (audience cheers) There’s this makeup artist who says that Cardi B is the worst client ever. (audience gasps) Listen, back in January, there’s a makeup artist. Her name is Black Swan. I asked Merrell who does my makeup. He’s all plugged in. He has no idea who this woman is, but also predicted she’ll never work again, and I said well maybe not with a celebrity. Texas is a big state, they love to get married, they love to wear a lot of makeup. (audience laughs) You can be the makeup artist for weddings and stuff. She spoke about her bad experience working with Cardi. Take a look. She looks at herself in her phone, she looks in the mirror, she looks at herself, she’s like, “Yo, why is the (bleep) so white?” I’m like, it’s setting powder. One of the ladies on her team walks in. “Yo, take off your (bleep).” This is what she says. “Take off your (bleep) glasses and look at this (bleep). Look at the (bleep) on my face. This (bleep) is ugly yo.” What do you want me to do? Do you want me to fix it, you wanna make it darker, you wanna make it lighter, you want me to fix it? Do you want me to go? “Yeah, you can get the (bleep) out. Get the (bleep) out of here. Get the (bleep) out of here.” What gives you the right to talk to me that way? (audience claps) Remember, this is back in January, but Cardi just heard about this video because she clapped back this week. Take a look. You come mad late, you come mad high, high as (bleep). In the middle of the process, I’m telling you I don’t like how my makeup is looking. “I’m not finished yet.” Whatever. You the makeup artist. You acting like you know what you doing. “She was being rude, she was being this.” Why? Why don’t you say why? Why don’t you say why? You mean to tell me that you was being an angel and I was just being disrespectful for no (bleep) reason? It’s unprofessional when you go online and talk (bleep) about it. You know what that do? That make other people not wanna hire you. Then people telling me to apologize. Apologize for what, because she wasn’t doing her job right? (audience claps) Black Swan responded showing text messages to prove she wasn’t late. Her arrival time and so on and so forth. She’s also strongly denying being on drugs. Here’s what I say. There’s nobody to believe one way or the other. Cardi B would be a good get if Black Swan just did her job correctly. Every time Cardi goes to Texas, then she’ll have her Texas makeup artist and stuff. Personally speaking, I travel with Murrell all the time. In 10 years of this show, I might’ve had to use an outsource makeup artist in another city maybe five times. I’m in Chicago, Murrell can’t be there, but he always calls and vets the person out. Who are you? This is what you do, don’t do it better than me, (audience laughs)
I want my job. I don’t know. (audience laughs) This woman has two kids also. The thing is is that you shouldn’t of posted a video about this. (audience claps) You could add doing Cardi B to your resume. You don’t have to say that it was a good experience or a bad experience, just add that to your resume and that would make people who come to Texas wanna use you ’cause Cardi B is big. She was great last night on the Hip Hop awards. (audience claps) I didn’t watch, but I did see the performance this morning. They played it for me. Nicki who? (audience gasps) (audience claps) She did a great job and I like her costume and her ponytail and stuff. (audience laughs) You know she’s got this song. It’s a diss track for Nick Minaj. Her team is split over whether she should release it or not. That’s what I say. Release it. (audience claps) But half of her team is like no, don’t do it. You don’t need to go down that road, and the other half of her team is like, no, hip hop. Emceeing, DJing, beefing. Hip hop. (audience claps) (audience laughs) Here’s the deal. After 40 years old when big monumental things happen in your life, don’t ask for gifts ’cause we’re assuming that you already have your blender or your toaster oven, whatever it is that you got going on in your life. Especially because the economy is bad, the times in which we live after 40 years old, people don’t need to be asking for stuff like a 22 year old would. I’m not getting you a pillow set, a blanket set. No!
(audience laughs) Kenya Moore’s baby shower is in just a few days. Kenya’s 47 and you know that her mom doesn’t care about her and her father is there sometimes and she’s really been looking for real love and she also very much wanted to have a baby. She deserves this, she deserves this. (audience claps) This as in happiness, not this as in a baby shower. 47 years old. (audience laughs) She expects every guest to buy her a gift even if they aren’t coming and she wants the RSVP. She’s very, very serious about that. She’s like etiquette 101. If you cannot attend a monumental life changing event in a friend’s life, it’s nice to send a gift anyway. Excuse me? You’re 47. I’m not sending you anything. (audience laughs)
No. (audience claps) Because at 47, you’re supposed to have a few things that you’re not bothering your friends and by the way, the registry wasn’t real expensive. There were $12 bottles and things like that, there were only 73 things on the registry. People so far as of 20 minutes ago, (audience laughs) 20 minutes ago, there were only 12 items purchased so far. (audience gasps) I’m gonna give you a tip and a hint. If by chance you are pushed in a corner and you have to buy a gift for somebody for one of these monumental occasions, don’t buy the actual gift. A gift card. No, not a gift card either. (audience laughs) What you do is you make a donation like to the American Cancer Society or something like that. You don’t hear. ‘Cause they give you the cards. They say a donation was made in your name. They don’t have to know it was only $20 or $10,
(audience laughs) or whatever you gave. I’m just saying. (audience claps) Good luck Kenya and the baby and the husband. (audience laughs) Allegedly. (audience gasps) (audience claps)
I play. Speaking of babies, Piers Morgan is being dragged and mocked for mocking men and how they carry their babies. I find nothing wrong with a Baby Bjorn. James Bond star Daniel Craig was spotted carrying his daughter in the Baby Bjorn. (audience claps) Then Piers tweets, “Oh 007, not you as well.” Hashtag emasculated Bond. Dads all over came out showing their pictures in force. (audience cheers) I find nothing wrong with that at all with a man carrying the baby in the front like that. Even Captain America, Chris Evans, jumped in saying, “You really have to be so uncertain of your own masculinity to consider yourself (audience claps) with how other men carries his child.” I’ll tell you what though. I never had one of those baby things, that front strap, ’cause I was always scared that the strap would break and then he’d fall down. When I was working here in the city at Park and 34th and the parking garage was right across the street. When Kev would come to work with me ’cause at that point, he’s a goober. I bring him to work sometimes. We had two highchairs. One for the house and one for the car and I put him in that highchair with the tray (audience laughs)
and the four wheels, throw those Cheerios on top, (audience laughs) push him across the street in the highchair, in the highchair.
(audience laughs) Come on. Mommy’s gotta work, mommy’s gotta work. Come on, let’s go, let’s go.
(audience laughs) He’s happy, he’s got his toys on the side and the Cheerios at the top and then when we get to the radio station, I just push him right in and park him right next to my chair,
(audience laughs) and do the show. (audience claps) I felt like a stroller was too much. A stroller was too much. They’re all low and then when you’re on the radio, you sit in a higher chair so then I’d have to be down here like this if he was in a stroller. Now he’s right here. We can make eye contact. Can I have a Cheerio? Perfect.
(audience laughs) (audience claps) I find nothing gay about it, if that’s what you’re insinuating. (audience claps) Lady Gaga is engaged to her agent Christian Carino. I always thought she was engaged anyway or married or something like that. It’s hard to keep up with her, but they’ve dated for a year and a half. He’s 49 and a divorcee. He was married for 18 years and he’s got two children and she’s only 32, but she’s got an older… I didn’t say face. (audience laughs) She’s got an older soul. To me, her being with somebody her own age almost doesn’t even make sense. She’s gotta be with an older man, a seasoned man who knows things. Wisdom. But he’s also her agent. Is it good to be married to her agent when they finally get married? Well, only if he fires his other clients and makes me priority. I’m priority number one, I’m your agent, I’m Gaga, let’s get this money and you can travel, we can travel together and so on and so forth. No other clients, just me. (audience claps)
That’s it. He apparently was so in love with her even before we found out all this information that he got a tattoo of her on his arm, which it doesn’t look like her. Money back. Wait, here it comes. Who is that? (audience groans) (audience laughs) At one point Gaga was previously engaged to that hot actor, Taylor Kinney. (audience claps) He’s 37. And they dated for four years before they became engaged on Valentine’s Day in 2015. Then they broke up in 2016. Now she’s with this guy Christian. The ring. Let’s size him up. (audience laughs) $400,000 for a pink sapphire ring with diamond halo all around. That’s not a pink diamond. A diamond halo. It’s very beautiful. I don’t know, there’s something about playing with the colors of stones and stuff that is reserved for other fingers. I’m a diamond girl. Clear, clear, clear. (audience claps) A sapphire is nice over here maybe or over here, but not here. This is the ring that Christian got her, but here’s the first ring that she got when she was engaged to Taylor. (audience aw’s)
(audience claps) Both rings were about $400,000. It’s a six carat heart-shaped ring. I don’t like the shapes and stuff. That’s fine for you maybe. A heart-shaped ring, get it for me for this hand, but not this hand. I’m more of a traditionalist. I just like a splash of diamonds and that’s it. Remember when Jennifer Lopez got engaged to Ben Affleck, he went out and spent $2.5 million on a pink diamond and when she got it, I was like, ew a pink diamond.
(audience laughs) If you’re married, then that’s the most important finger on your hand for a lot of us. You’re gonna be stuck with a pink diamond for the rest of your life?
(audience laughs) No! A pink diamond belongs someplace else. Good luck to everybody involved. (audience claps) And we’ve got more great show everyone. CNN’s Van Jones in on the couch, so grab a snack and come on back. (audience cheers)
