SMH…Wendy Williams Tearfully Apologizes For Talkin Too Much…Again
Wendy Williams is never one to mince words but every now and then, those words come back to bite her. This is definitely one of those times. Apparently, Wendy had some harsh words for the woman accusing Nelly of rape and now she’s back peddling.
When Wendy Williams discussed the ordeal during the infamous “Hot Topics” segment of her show on Monday, October 9, she had some relatively harsh words for Nelly’s accuser. According to The Jasmine Brand, Wendy even insisted the woman may have “put herself in that situation” if the allegations are true. “If she did not put herself in that situation, this wouldn’t have happened. Young lady, you’ve got to stay out of tour buses.” Of course, Wendy’s attempt to blame the victim didn’t go over well for many people. Almost immediately after the segment aired, social media users wasted no time dragging Wendy for her callous words.
No woman deserves to be tricked about an after party, raped, thrown money at & then kicked in the street off Nelly tour bus!

So, on Tuesday, October, Wendy opted to address the situation and offer an apology for her seemingly offensive statements.
Wendy offered a detailed “It’s never an easy job sitting here in the lavender chair by myself with nobody to bounce off of. Sometimes I might say something that you don’t understand, but I am the girl to cop to it. Maybe cavalierly you caught my comments, ‘You got to watch where you go.’ I didn’t mean anything by it.” She went on to share details about a disheartening personal situation she experienced as a child. Apparently, there were times when Wendy was also made to feel uncomfortable around men. “What I meant is, once upon a time there was a girl named Wendy and she was only 13 years old but looked like a woman.”
Tearfully, she apologized. “All I’m saying regarding young women and I apologize if my message was met with callousness. But what I meant to say is young ladies, we should be able to go wherever we want to go, but we always have to know where the exits are. We always have to have our $20 bill, just in case. And we have to be aware. That’s all I was saying, I apologize.”
