Wendy Williams is looking gorgeous these days and so is her glittery new set. On Sept. 19, the gossip queen regaled fans with a juicy "Wendy" episode. The larger-than-life personality was a part of the initial slew of guests for the new "Katie" show, where she discussed her well-known obsession with wigs and hair. Today Wendy welcomed Perez Hilton and Wyclef Jean to her own sofa to talk it out.
Apparently, Wendy and Perez are no longer duking it out for the title "Queen of All Media." The two chatted it up like BFFs with Perez selling his former buddy Amanda Bynes down the gossip river. He told Wendy that he's reached out to Amanda in her time of drama, but she says she's "fine." He also explained that her parents are super worried about her alleged car collisions and run-ins with the law. We wonder what happened to Perez's post-Oprah declarations to remain gossip-free? Oh well. Wealthy as he is, Mario Lavandeira has to make a living like everyone else.
Before fans could turn up their noses at Hilton backstabbing his girl Amanda, Wendy invited a bigger rat to take a seat. (Yes, we've been watching "Mob Wives" again, where a rat is defined as someone who snitches on former pals.) Musician and activist Wyclef made an appearance to promote his new book.
The would-be president of Haiti has written a memoir entitled, "Purpose: An Immigrant's Story." The title sounds simultaneously uplifting and harmless, doesn't it? After all, Harper Collins describes the hip-hop maven's tome as, "one of inspiration, full of drama and humor, told in compelling detail, about the incredible life of one of our most revered musical icons." Well, alrighty then. That's certainly a fitting tale for a man to tell who changed the landscape of music, right?
Sean Penn's nemesis has penned something else altogether. Mr. Jean's entire conversation with the dazzling daytime diva was about Lauryn Hill because that's what "Purpose" is about. Apparently, hell hath no fury like a Fugee scorned. As the Los Angeles Times insists, Wyclef's entire memoir is more about former bandmate Lauryn Hill.
Wyclef has decided to come clean about his longtime affair with Lauryn. He confessed to Wendy that after L Boogie's album "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill," hip-hop fans largely felt that he broke Lauryn's heart. Clef is here to tell that he thought her first child would be his, but Ms. Hill was cheating on him with Rohan Marley while he was cheating on his loving wife with her. Got it?
So this is a book of revenge, plain and simple. Such barrel-scraping is certainly not what we want from one of our foremost musical icons. The Lauryn affair is old news. The superstar tells "MTV News" that he plans to write seven books.
Pras, watch your back!
