Wendy Williams and Joseline’s tense interview
Wendy Williams welcomed Joseline Hernandez on Wednesday’s episode of The Wendy Williams Show. However, the interview turned tense after Williams commented on Hernandez’s changing look.
The host said Hernandez looked different every time she saw her. But she made it clear that “it was in a good way.” However, Hernandez seemed offended and accused Williams of being disrespectful.
She ranted and told Williams that she should have given her flowers and honor her with her work. Hernandez stressed that she is an accomplished woman and Williams is 35 years her senior, so the latter should make her feel wanted. Hernandez also told Williams that as a woman, they should uphold each other and not go against one another.
“I came from the gutter, I came from the street. Give me that respect Ms. Wendy,” she said.
Williams responded to Hernandez, saying they loved her and she finds her entertaining. But she continued ranting and even asked the host to do better because she is no longer in an abusive relationship anymore.
She also stressed that Williams should be nicer to women of color. She stressed that she should respect them and give them flowers.
How did Williams respond?
Wendy Williams was unapologetic at first. When Hernandez said she felt undervalued, the host said she felt the same.
“I still don’t make that dollar-for-dollar match that men make, but anyway, Shoe Cam please. Let me see your shoes,” Williams said while trying to get Hernandez back on the show.
At one point, Williams threw an actual flower to Hernandez, who kept on asking her for it. But the reality star said she should give her more.
Despite their argument, the two appeared on good terms at the end of the interview. Williams apologized and wished the Puerto Rican princess the best. Williams also promoted Joseline’s TV show.
Viewers react to the interview
Meanwhile, those who watched the show sided with Williams. Several commented on the video uploaded on YouTube. According to them, it was Joseline who was being disrespectful.
Some also said she threw shade at Williams when she said that Wendy was 35 years her senior. Another viewer joked that Joseline looked like she was in the front line fighting for COVID-19.
A different netizen said it was sad because Wendy Williams promoted her guesting on the show for the whole week, and she acted that way.
