Wendy Williams Talks Black Women and Plastic Surgery

Wendy Williams Talks Black Women and Plastic Surgery

Talk show queen has words for her haters.

Published May 18, 2012

Wendy Williams has taken some heat for going under the knife, and now the talk show host has something to say to her haters — in particular, Black women who look down on her for her multiple plastic surgeries.


Williams tells xoJane:


"They are jealous. Because if I said to that person, 'I got the doctor and I’m going to pay for it. Choose three things you want to do,' believe me, they would get it done. They are very jealous and scared. Scared of what their other friends would say, or to break out of the box and be different. And being Black? Ugh, please. My people will not go for any kind of surgery. We are supposed to be natural. Ugh, whatever."


The glamazon, who participated in xoJane's "makeunder" feature, also put wig-haters on blast. "If you do wear a wig, everybody wants you to take off the wig and show your hair. That’s what Tyra [Banks] did on her show years ago," she says, adding a little dig, "because she was running out of ideas trying to shock her audience."


Williams, who has spoken openly about her procedures and owns her own wig line, sums up her position: "If I was a librarian with a smaller personality, then I would keep the hair that I have."


Lucky for television audiences, she's not.
