Wendy Show: BET Awards Highlights
The BET Awards were June 29. Wendy Williams said her policy is that she watches the red carpet, but not actual award shows. But this time, she was enjoying dinner with her family and missed the red carpet. So instead they watched the BET Awards, and Wendy said she was surprised at how entertaining it was. (For more of Wendy’s Hot Topics, read about The View cast and Shia LaBeouf’s antics.)
She praised host Chris Rock, but mentioned many other highlights from the evening, such as Iggy Azalea and T.I.’s performance. Later, T.I. and Tiny reunited. Paris Hilton and Keke Palmer sported some notable fashions.
Wendy Williams: Busta Rhymes Weight Gain
Wendy’s favorite moment was Busta Rhymes, though she noted that he may not have been to the gym in awhile. “Dressing on the side” was her advice for him. “Busta looks like he’s about to bust out,” she said.
On a scale of 1 to 10, Wendy rated the BET Awards a 7, because there is always room for improvement. However, she did not seem to have any suggestions for improvement, which makes me think her score is on the low side.
Wendy Williams: Lindsay Lohan Speed-the-Plow
Lindsay Lohan is making her acting debut in a London West End production of David Mamet’s Speed-the-Plow. Madonna once did a Broadway production of this show. Lohan is set to do eight shows a week for two months, and Williams was skeptical that Lohan would be able to keep up that pace.
In summer 2013, Williams starred for seven weeks in Chicago, doing eight shows a week while also hosting her talk show. She did not think that Lohan had the discipline to keep such a tight schedule. She said she was surprised at how soon before the performance the actors would arrive and be able to slip into their roles.
On the flip side, Williams thought the theatre made a smart decision to cast her because it would generate interest in their production, but pointed to Lindsay’s relationship with Oprah as a sign that she does not have respect for anyone else. It’s a good thing there is an understudy, but Williams said audiences can get their money back if they don’t get to see the star they paid for. I didn’t know that. Did you?
