Wendy Williams Says T.I.’s Instagram Post Seemingly Defending Her Was Actually A Subtle Diss


Here’s a random end-of-summer beef that you may not have seen coming. Earlier in the week, T.I. shared an Instagram post in regards to viral photos of a bikini-clad Wendy Williams vacationing on a beach in Barbados.

While Tip pointed out that Williams is known for talking “sh*t” about him and others, he deiced to be “respectful” rather than join the fray of negative comments about her body because “regardless of her flaws she’s still [an] independent black business woman that’s had to fight her way through life.”

But Williams didn’t view the post as Tip's attempt at defending her against body shamers. She interpreted the rapper's words as an subliminal jab at her figure — specifically her butt — or lack thereof, Williams said in an interview with the New York Daily News on Thursday (Sept. 14).

“I was just in Barbados with my husband on vacation. The paparazzi caught me. T.I. referenced my lack of behind,” she said.

“I wanted to say ‘I could buy one like your wife and so many people have done,’” Williams added. “I could buy one any day. It's flat.”

For the record, Tip's wife, Tameka "Tinya" Harris" has been honest about getting butt enhancements during an appearance on the Wendy Williams Show. She also opened up to Williams about the past drama between her and Tip, and Berniece Burgos, earlier in the year.

Williams will kick off the latest season of her syndicated talk show on Monday (Sept. 18), and despite her “say it like you mean it” reputation, the 51-year-old New Jersey native says she’s not as”shady as people think.”

“I do this for work,” she noted. “I did the scene of pop culture. When it comes to being a good friend and holding a secret, you're looking at her, believe it or not.”

Kylie Jenner Doubles Down On Being Crowned A "Self Made" Billionaire

The premise of "self-made" and its interpretation when it comes to privileged celebrities has been a huge debate. When Kylie Jenner was named Forbes' youngest self-made billionaire, debates were raised due to her timeline in the limelight and her wealthy family. The 21-year-old defended her title, explaining how she doesn't fall into any ofter category.

"There’s really no other word to use other than self-made because that is the truth," she said in Q&A with Interview Magazine's German edition. "That is the category that I fall under," she started.

She acknowledged how her fan base equated to her success but refuted claims that she used her family's money to jump-start her wildly successful Kylie Cosmetics line.

"Although, I am a special case because before I started Kylie Cosmetics, I had a huge platform and lots of fans. I did not get money from my parents past the age of 15. I used 100 percent of my own money to start the company, not a dime in my bank account is inherited… and I am very proud of that."

Earlier this month (March 5) the mother-of-one officially surpassed Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest person to reach billionaire status, when Kylie Cosmetics hit a billion dollars in revenue.
