Wendy Williams is a small beep on my radar. I know she started getting press when her New York radio show really took off, and she does a lot of celebrity interviews and has her hands on a lot of juicy gossip – much of which might be totally false. Wendy’s trying her hand at television again. This time it’s not just VH1 airing her radio show or whatever, someone actually gave Wendy a talk show. Wendy was promoting the show to Popeater when it seems like she confirmed the rumor that Jay-Z pulled rank at the BET Awards to get Chris Brown uninvited. According to Wendy, Chris Brown is “finished”. Wendy also talks about how Kate Hudson and Jennifer Aniston need some “counseling”, and how she now finds Shia LaBeouf “quietly devastating and sexy.” My favorite part is when she’s talking about Megan Fox – Wendy quotes Judge Judy and says “Beauty fades, dumb is forever.” I seriously hope that’s Megan’s new tattoo:
Popeater: Do you think there’s too much attention being paid by the media to Michael Jackson’s death?
WW: Yea, but we can’t forget about Goldie Hawn being upset — as I am too — about Kate Hudson and Alex Rodriguez! I need to talk to someone about this!
What don’t you like about it?
I don’t like them together. Given that she has Ryder and everything, I feel like Kate introduces men to her child too early. Alex Rodriguez also just got out of a marriage, but they always say don’t monkey-bar from one relationship to another.
Well, there was Madonna in between.
Yea, but Madonna gets it. I don’t think she was looking to fall in love. We gals of a particular age, Madonna is older than me, but still, Madonna’s not looking to have any more kids. Kate is still young and tight and has a chance to go along and make a new family with somebody. Why would you want such used goods? I like Alex, he’s cute and adorable and I wouldn’t kick him out of bed, but he’s a one night stand. I wouldn’t introduce him to my child and mother! And before Kate, I think we need to counsel Jennifer Aniston.
I heard you have a bit of a crush on Shia LaBeouf?
Well all of a sudden, he’s hot. When Rihanna was dating him, that’s when I first took note. And maybe it was the angle of the pictures shot, but I was just like ‘Eww!’ You don’t sport him on your arm, you just hang out with him. I couldn’t figure it out because he didn’t look that hot to me. Now, all of a sudden I saw him with Megan Fox and there’s something about him that’s very quietly devastating and sexy. Though I’ve heard she’s back with Brian Austin Green, which means she just did him (Shia) for the tour and left him on the side.
What do you think about Brian Austin Green dating Megan?
I mean, he was there when she was just Megan from the Midwest or wherever she’s from. Now that she’s Megan Fox, I think she might want to sow her wild oats, and unfortunately, she makes him look like a sucker. There, I said it. She’s not being quiet about sowing her oats. It’s one thing where it’s like ‘Baby, you’re this big star, I can’t go with you to promote ‘Transformers,’ whatever happens overseas stays overseas. Then, here she is practically climbing up Shia LaBeouf’s leg in this red dress. That was extremely disrespectful. If I were a man, that would cancel all hope of getting back together.
Even if it’s someone like Megan Fox?
Excuse me! I’m a fan of Judge Judy, and like she says, ‘Beauty fades, dumb is forever.’ Very disrespectful.
OK, let’s play a bit a word association. I’ll say a celebrity, you give me the first things that pop into your mind.
Michael Jackson: Dead, and rest in peace.
Britney Spears: Brunette, and she looks good!
Chris Brown: Finished. Listen, Mike! My hopes for any sort of comeback was for the Michael Jackson tribute at the BET Awards, but from what I understand, Jay-Z didn’t even want him in the building. I think everyone will forget about it (the Rihanna beating), but everyone will forget him too. Here it is, pop culture forgets everything. If Chris Brown wanted to make an immediate comeback, the BET Awards was the way to do it. He does have a chance to get back in and do something, but he has to have a spec-tacular party song. It’s gotta be good for hip-hop and Top 40, for all colors and all ages.
Is it weird that I’m totally with Wendy on all of this? She’s got Megan Fox down exactly, I think she’s got Madonna figured out, and the Kate Hudson stuff is right on. The only thing she might have wrong is Chris Brown – I don’t think he’s in any way finished. If anything, beating Rihanna made Chris Brown a household name, and there’s a very real possibility he’s going to be a big star for years to come. Unless Jay-Z meets him in a dark alleyway.
