“Wendy Never Builds People Up In A Positive Way”: Porsha Williams Slams Wendy Williams
While doing an interview for V-103 in Atlanta this week (she’s doing heavy promo for her new single “Flatline”), Porsha Williams talked about the usual: RHOA, her love life–same ol’, same ol’. But one topic that Williams spoke passionately about that isn’t really brought up was her disdain for Wendy Williams. If you’ll recall, last year Wendy stated on her show that Porsha was less than smart. She said it once to her face while Porsha was a guest, but it seems that she also said it again to her audience–going as far as to encourage the audience members to call her stupid (which they did). The radio personalities played the clip of Wendy Williams and her audience calling her “less than smart” and basically stupid on her show for Porsha, and here is what she had to say in response:
“You know what? It’s just enough. It’s enough of women of power, women of color, not supporting each other. Like every time I see her say something about me, I’m disappointed in her. She’s calling me ‘less than smart’, she’s less than a woman. You shouldn’t do that. I’ve been through a very traumatic situation that hurt me, all I’m trying to do is stand and be strong and possibly inspire somebody else and all she does is knock me down. But this is the same woman who said that I should’ve had a baby by my ex to get cash. Really? Never. Never stoop that low. So for me, I have no thoughts on Wendy, at all. You know what, for her to have that type of platform she has, she should use it better than she does. I’m disappointed in her. I’m not even going to really insult her and go too low, I’m just disappointed in a woman like her to do what she does every single day. It’s the influence that she has. As a TV host, Oprah, for instance, she influences not only her audience, but the world. And to get to that level you have to be intelligent and know how to deal with that power and use it positively. Oprah will definitely go in, if she had an interview with me she would dig in deep, but she would also build me back up. Wendy never builds people up in a positive way, definitely not black women. And for me, I feel like it’s low and it’s just sad. But…she only fools the people in her audience. If you go to her Instagram and Twitter, it’s a completely different opinion. So for me I feel like her audience is just like *clap* clap* *clap* say yeah, say yeah, stupid, whatever. If they have their own mind and they’re at home and they’re on their Twitter they voice that she’s wrong for not saying that she’s sorry that I had a miscarriage. How could you say something about me having a baby by him to get cash and you knew that we had gone through something so traumatic? I feel like, as a woman, she just doesn’t sit and think and do things, so at the end of the day, she might be less than smart.”
