Wendy Williams Hits Back After Howard Stern Reignites Their Feud!
They’re at it again! It’s a new year but the same old feud as Howard Stern and Wendy Williams are fighting again.
You may remember back in May 2019, the hosts made headlines when Wendy called the former shock jock “so Hollywood,” saying he was predictable and no longer edgy. Howard was incensed, calling the daytime host a “jealous bitch” and saying she was “nothing” to him. Yeah, she definitely touched a nerve. Eventually Howard apologized, and Wendy happily accepted.
But Howard clearly holds a grudge as he put gurl’s name back in his mouth on Monday. While discussing the National Radio Hall of Fame‘s lack of relevance, the America’s Got Talent judge joked:
“No offense to Wendy Williams, but they put Wendy Williams in before me.”
Um, what? This is one of those situations where someone says “no offense” right before saying something to which they should totally take offense. He’s definitely implying he deserved it way more.
And here’s the thing — Wendy actually agreed with him! During her Hot Topics segment, she began:
“Now lookie here, Howard, I’m tired of fighting with you, man. Why do you always have to fight with me? Why? Cuz you think I’m the low-lying fruit?”
Responding, she said in full:
“You know what, Howard? I was offended the night that I got my award, even though I loved it — my family was there and everybody was so happy… Howard was inducted in 2012, I was in 2011. Well, Howard, I agree with you, king of all media, a hero to me and many people around here. There’s nothing you could say that would make me stop loving you, Howard. I agree, he was supposed to be there before me. He was in before I was… Personally and professionally, I admire you, Howard Stern, and they were wrong for that.”
Well, that’s very big of her.
“But don’t hate on me because I got in before you.”
There it is. That’s the Wendy we know and love. She explained:
“I know the only reason that I got in is that I had a new talk show. I went from radio, successfully, to TV with my own show. You haven’t done that. America’s Got Talent was already successful. You were part of an ensemble when you got there.”
We guess that makes some sense? But Howard was already super famous for years before the AGT gig. Heck, they made a movie about him! Starring him!
Then Wendy totally high-roaded Howard, saying:
“Keep your hundreds of thousands of dollars, your beautiful wife, Beth, all those animals that you all rescue and be happy, man. And stop hating on me ’cause I don’t hate you!”
Will Howard respond? Or is she still “nothing” to him? We’ll see…
