WE’RE THINKING JUST ABOUT NOW WENDY WILLIAMS IS BEEFING UP HER SECURITY and buying those Google glasses. She’ll need them to protect herself against the assailant who plans to make her pay for dissing the Queen B.
The irreverent talk show host stabbed hip hop’s reigning royalty Beyoncé with her forked tongue last Thursday when she mocked the songtress’s voice on the trailer for her upcoming HBO hagio-documentary:
“I am a Beyoncé fan. I’m gonna watch her upcoming documentary, because fortunately one of the TVs in our kitchen has closed captioning, so I’ll be able to understand what she says. You know Beyoncé can’t talk. She sounds like she has a fifth grade education.”
When the audience reacted negatively toward the talker’s comments, Williams parried, “”Excuse me, I just said I was a fan. But we have to call a spade a spade.”
She no doubt was talking about Bey’s hood rat-sounding, “If I’m scared, be scared” utterance in the trailer for her upcoming HBO special. But in that snap Williams set herself up as target for the legions of passionate Beyoncé fans, starting with her felonious husband Jay Z, the goopy Gwyneth Paltrow, Gawker’s Caity Weaver (who sees herself as Beyoncé’s doppleganger), and right up to the Prez and Mrs. Obama. That is quite a formidable enemies list to agitate. I mean, Jay Z shot his own brother, Paltrow slays regularly as guest on Glee and this Prez has single-handedly discarded the Constitution’s right to due process. I don’t know what crimes Caity’s committed but she’s got a high profile firing range on which to avenge her idol. And god only knows what Kanye’s capable of; he is after all the “jackass” who embarrassed himself before the world to defend Beyoncé’s All The Single Ladies video at the MTV .
There is one good thing about Williams’ throwing such dark shade though: it might possibly deflate B’s ego just enough to keep her grounded. Because hearing how stupendous you are all the time eventually will make you suck as a human being.
