Top talker Wendy Williams threw some shade at reality star Aubrey O’Day during her “Hot Topics” segment today, accusing O’Day of having plastic surgery. “What did she used to look like?” asked Williams as “before” and “after” photos came up on the screen behind her.
Williams added, “She’s really young. You don’t start doing that stuff until you get to a particular age. She’s going to have to keep up all that filler and work and stuff.”
Despite the comments on O’Day’s appearance, Williams noted, “I love her, she’s been here on the show.”
O’Day made headlines this week after it was revealed that Making the Band, the reality-competition show on which she was discovered, would be returning to TV. The show was produced by Sean “Diddy” Combs, and O’Day addressed rumors she would be returning with her former group, Danity Kane, by tweeting, “You know he can’t finish any artist he starts.”
Williams took exception to this assessment, and slammed O’Day for speaking out of turn. “Listen, Aubrey. Sour grapes. He might not have finished with Danity Kane, but maybe that’s because you weren’t as big as you thought you were,” said Williams.
Viewers on Twitter took sides, with many agreeing that O’Day was out of line with her tweet, and should be thankful to Combs for giving her a big break:
Lmao, we wouldn’t know who Aubrey O’Day is without Diddy so maybe that was more her job than this.— 🌚 (@SicilianInHeels) July 16, 2019
Others disagreed with Williams, and some even welcomed the idea of a Danity Kane comeback:
@WendyWilliams i love you but @danitykane & @day26 were and still VERY successful!!! And personallyI don't want another Making the Band!! The BANDS have already been made Thank you!! And Aubrey was NOT the Beyonce of the group, you betta put some respeck on DANITY'S KANE NAME Lol— Khalessi 👑 of 7 SEX Kingdoms (@smooches0411) July 18, 2019
Williams further defended Sean “Diddy” Combs, citing a list of successful artists the mogul has helped become superstars. “Lil’ Kim was created by Puffy. She’s a legend and an icon. Faith Evans, Mary J. Blige, Biggie Smalls, Janelle Monáe, French Montana, Machine Gun Kelly,” Williams said. “Get your facts,” she added.
