Wendy Williams Says She Needs Closed Captioning To Understand Beyoncé

by (@zaragolden)


Wendy Williams has gone and done what few before her have been brave enough to do: she dissed Beyoncé. The vaunted talk show host went in this morning, telling her loyal daytime audience that she’ll be tuned-in when the Queen B’s HBO documentary airs in February, but confessing that she’ll have to turn the closed captioning on because “She can’t talk.” Ouch!

“I am a Beyoncé fan. And I have to tell you, I’m gonna be watching this documentary,” she began, cushioning the blow to come. “Fortunately one of the TVs in our kitchen has closed captioning so I’ll be able to understand what she says. She — you know Beyoncé can’t talk. Beyoncé sounds like she has a fifth grade education. She can’t talk.”

So basically: Wendy doesn’t think as highly of Beyoncé as you do, but she’s not about to cut “Love On Top” from her “Getting Ready To Go Out” playlist. Is this blasphemy? Crazy talk? Or is Williams just speaking the truth?
