Wendy Williams, you tried it! The talk show maven threw epic (harmless, but epic) shade at Teairra Mari on The Wendy Williams Show this week when she tried to recollect the singer’s name with, “Remember Tia Maria?” When the audience corrected her, she shrugged it off, “Well, whatever.”
Wendy found herself talking about the Love & Hip Hop Hollywood starlet when she was discussing Rihanna’s fans being upset that her world tour is being postponed. Wendy theorized that RiRi’s a bit entitled because of the way her career got started.
I do believe that part of Rihanna’s situation is that Rihanna came into this business being very entitled. I’ll tell you what I mean, cute girl from Barbados, all of a sudden she’s signed with Jay Z and that whole Roc-A-Fella Records. And people already knew who Ciara was [so] she was the new girl in her lane
*Then* came the poor Teairra Mari shade.
Remember that girl Tia Maria, who was supposed to be the Rihanna of Roc-A-Fella? [audience yells Teairra Mari] Well, whatever. Wasn’t Tia Maria a spirit that our parents used to drink back in the ’60s?
Whatcha got in that cup, Miss Wendy?
Kopy that. What do you think of Wendy calling Teairra “Tia Maria”?
