Wendy Williams & Joseline Hernandez Fight In Heated On-Air Exchange
On Wednesday’s episode of The Wendy Williams Show, guest Joseline Hernandez had a heated exchange as the reality star was promoting the second season of her show, Joseline’s Cabaret: Miami, on Wendy Williams’ talk show.
While the interview began pleasantly, the conversation then took a shift after Williams commented on Hernandez’s changing looks.
“You know Miss Wendy, I just must say this to you, I hope you’re going to give me my flowers today,” Hernandez said. “I’m an accomplished woman, and I just feel like every time I come to your show, you don’t give me those flowers now. You know? And Wendy, you’re 35 years my senior. I should get those flowers from you. I should feel wanted by people like you. And not just me, all the other young girls.”
“We feel like you be trying us. We feel like you don’t really be rooting for us, especially with me,” she added. “Every time I come on your show, you always wanna compare me to another broad. I don’t need to be compared; I’ve made my own brand. I’ve made my own brand for years. I’ve been out there for the past decade, I’ve got my own show, I franchised my own show to another network. I have the number one show in the country.”
“No, you have the number one show on Zeus,” Williams replied. “And you got renewed for a third season, which needs to be commended.”
Hernandez then went on to comment about how she felt undervalued every time she appeared on the show, and Williams needs to do better.
“I don’t apologize for anything,” Williams said. “You feel undervalued? Well so do I, okay? You know what, Joseline, because you’re a part of pop culture, this is what I do. But if you possibly think that I leave here every day and don’t feel undervalued for something that I do as a woman – we’re not gonna even talk about race – just as a woman? I still don’t make that dollar-for-dollar match that men make, but anyway, Shoe Cam please. Let me see your shoes.”
The altercation resulted in Williams throwing an actual flower at Hernandez’s screen. Despite the incident, the interview seemed to end on good terms for the two.
