Wendy Williams: Real Housewives is “shaming” me as a black woman

By  |  263 Comments


Reported By Liku Zelleke

Real Housewives of Atlanta” has just ended its sixth season and it did so with a bang. The show was able to break the record of the most watched episode in the history of franchises. A whopping 4.3 million viewers across the US were in front of their sets as the show aired its season finale.

But, although RHOA managed to attract the unprecedented amount of viewers, not all of them were entranced with, or even happy about, the cast.

One such person is Wendy Williams; and when Wendy Williams shares her thoughts about a show everyone listens.

The media and television expert made an appearance on HuffPost Live and had a few thoughts to share about the just-ended season of RHOA – and they weren’t nice thoughts. At least, they weren’t when it comes to the cast members whom she thinks should all be fired.

Williams started out by saying, “I’m turned off and I don’t consider myself some ‘highbrow’ person.”

“I’m just Wendy from New Jersey, but I’m also a grown woman,” the Jersey Shore native explained.

With the manner in which the “ladies” had been acting from the start to finish of the season, it didn’t need much explanation.

“And I feel like if you’re vocabulary is so small that you can’t find the words at 37-years-old to tell somebody about themselves , you gotta resort to running across a conference room table like a damn monkey, or punching them in the face, or throwing them in the pool, or throwing a wine bottle at them in the lake.”

“You’ve got a problem. And I’m turned off by that. Now you’re shaming me,” she said, “Not just as a black woman, but as a woman. Like, real ladies don’t fight … I think NeNe should be fired.”

With all the tongue wagging and fisticuffs that had been the norm, who could blame her?

    NeNe did not throw a single punch or pull anyone’s hair or drag anyone across the stage. NeNe should stay. I actually think the entire show should wipe the slate clean and start over again.

      As a Black woman I just laugh and wonder why this behavior is fine with “us”. Then I reakize we are the same ones whose kids eat free lunch at school with Jordans and KDs shoes on.

    I agree with Wendy it is embarrassing to say the least,but a girl has got to make a living. If your only claim to fame is who you married and then divorced then the woman didn’t think to have a life while married or prepare
    for the day that this could end either by death or divorce is just not using uour head. But,I don’t see what this has to do with Wendy’s weave. Really she bought it, she likes it and she looks good in it.

    Why does she keep calling out Nene? Nene didn’t hit anyone or curse them out did she? She just out talk everyone. Is Wendy jealous of Nene? Really I would have thought she would hae said fired Kenya and Porshe.

    Something doesn’t smell right in the buttermilk, especially since she had Jerry Springer on her show today. He started this mess!

    I think the show is just stupid like so many others … Duck Dynasty is good example — they are all just DUMB — but that seems to be where most folks are these days — Windy’s show — why would I watch that…. we are on the road to Idiocracy ( !!!!

    Wendy please clary you are ashamed of yourself because you are constantly trying to change your looks. Ease up off the juveraderm in those cheeks. You looking more and more like a transgender. Now you put blacks down everyday on your show. You are a hypocrite. You are a non factor so stop talking. I don’t know why people go on your show

    Their ALL the same woman, party- girl diva.. Most relationships are superficial especially those women approaching mid-to-late thirties with teenagers or grown young adults… It’s cool if your that mother in the tightest party mini-dress at your children’s high school graduation type…

    All of the “Shows”, are just that, they are Shows. They are put on for interainment purposes only. None of those people are hired to be “Role models”. People need to stop with the name calling. If You don’t like the shows then DON’T WATCH THEM !!!! No one ever says that the Reality shows with other races of people represent the entire race, because they don’t, and others seem to know this. Why can’t we just see the crap for what it is and keep it moving. This people are in it to make money, period.If you as a person, are not strong enough in your own character, and can’t represent yourself, then you have a serious problem, and it can’t be blamed on T.V.

    I am African-American, I don’t watch these reality shows. They do not represent me or any of the women I know. Wendy, stop giving them a platform on YOUR show. And remember it is a show, just a bunch of unrealistic junk put on for folks to make money off me and you. I refuse to watch and hope all of you will turn it off too.

    Bring back some decent shows for African-Americans to watch, I personally refuse to support and watch this garbage…never watched, never will…nuff said!

      Meghann,I couldn’t agree with you more.The people who own these movie production companies are sitting back laughing and having a ball at how the women from The Real Housewives of Atlanta are acting out on television in front of millions of people, and it really doesn’t matter whether it is real, or that some of it is just acting, but the point is, is that they are allowing themselves to be used by these companies, with the rest of the world thinking that their characteristics, are really how black women act. I wonder how many of those women are willing to say no, and stop allowing themselves to be used as pawns to continue to denigrate our women, and our race as a people, but they would rather take the oppressors filthy, dirty money, then say that they are living well. That is not living well.These black women, and other black women on these stupid ignorant reality shows need to stand up and begin to say that they are much more worthy, and start to embrace those roles that will not put black women down, and if the powers that supposedly be wre giving them positive roles, then they should come together, use the intelligence that I know they have, and create their own position roles. If they can spend all that energy on allowing themselves to look like low life women on television, then I am sure that they can use that same energy to create something positive.

    Wendy Williams is hardly what I would call a reflection of a dignified black woman. Her whole show is about who is such and so’s jump-off, how can one woman railroad her husband in the divorce, how a woman can scheme to find a rich man, judging how this or that actress looks with her family on the beach, judging other peoples relationships, encouraging women to be deceitful in their relationships, how to hide behind wigs and make-up… As jack-up as they all are, this is hardly a woman to be judging the Atlanta housewives. She cleary has a personal axe to grind with Nee Nee. Probably based her Twitter comments when she decided she would be the one to define Nee Nee’s marriage to Greg. She’s doing the same thing with the Dancing With The Stars judges saying they should all be fired because they voted her clumpsy, man looking behind off the show. She’s using her show to help fuel her personal beefs.

    These so called reality shows are all disgraceful to women. We have become so money hungry to the point that we would do whatever it takes to be noticed/seek attention.

    About Wendy W. she like any of us has the right to give her opinion so here is mine about her. Those boobs are ridiculously oversized. I’ll say that she like the housewives suffers from the same need to be the center of attention. I naturally have bib boobs and cannot understand why someone would pay to look like a cow. Ooops sorry…..but it’s just my opinion.

    Although the RHOA and other reality shows where women of color act disrespectfully to each other and their shows should be off the air. Wendy is in no position to criticize, she makes her living belittling women, she does it in the daytime and the others do it at night. Pot meet kettle.

    I, personally, am waiting to see what happens to Nene Leakes when she told the show owner “I’m sorry” “I said I’m sorry, do you want to take down your pants and let me kiss your arse?” I guess if she keeps making him that money, he will let it pass and collect the cash.

    That is why NeNe is allowed to make those statements because NeNe Leakes is kissing his azz!

    Wendy take a seat because your show does the same thing on a daily basis. Stop being a hypocrite. White women act a plump fool too on reality shows but black women are the only ones that are stereotype!

    That dude is always hating on black women,as much as the other housewives on the other reality shows stab each other in the back and fight but he can only comment on the black reality shows, jealousy just pure jealousy, it’s no ones fault that he’s built straight up and down with no curves,and that he took too many noassatall pills and the only thing that was left was to get a boob job to try to look more feminine..It’s no one’s fault!

  25. Ugh...

    Wendy has no room to talk when it comes to shame, and she’s being disingenuous regarding this matter. Truth is, Wendy has an axe to grind with several of the ladies on the show and she’s using faux outrage as a means to poke them. If she were really sincere she would mention the other reality shows, comprised primarily of Black women, that show physical violence and negativity. Love and Hip Hop and Married to Medicine are two that come to mind. Wendy has also made some rather nasty and stereotypical comments about Black women on her show so all this “shaming” talk is a farce. She became famous for exploiting this sort of behavior for decades and now she wants to act above it. Whatever she’s selling, I’m not buying.

    The bible say first ye seek the kingdom of God and all of his rightousness and all things will be added to you. We must stop selling our souls for money.Their is nothing wrong with having money but, the love of money is the root of all evil.We must remember that prayer changes things if we want to see a change in our women we must go to our creator Jesus Christ, who made all women, men and children. May God Bless you all.
