Janet Hubert CALLS Out Gossiping A** Wendy Williams.
Good Afternoon America.
Here I am blogging AGAIN! And YES, I ONLY blog when I feel like it’s worth discussing. Anyway, this morning, I google the morning news and the top articles of the day.
Low and behold, I ran across a article on Janet Hubert, the actress who played the 1st “Aunt Viv” or “Vivian Banks” on “The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air” in the 90’s, CALLING out Wendy Williams with a OPEN letter stating how CRUEL Wendy was to the late Whitney Houston during the time of her drug use and marriage trouble to Bobby Brown. Altho Janet used Whitney, as her muse in the letter, she made a comment about Wendy’s ongoing gossiping rants on her show.
Included in the letter it states…
“You said that morning with tears in your eyes, that you would not discuss Whitney any further, but you crucified her the whole time she was alive, as you do so many people on your show. I want to ask you why? What do you get out of this besides money?
How do you sleep at night knowing that you are one of the biggest bullies in the world disguised as HOT TOPICS? Celebrities are not topics we are people, just like everyone else, we hurt and we hear and we bleed real blood, not fake blood, just as you do.
How do we as parents teach our children to honor each other, treat each other with kindness when all they see are images of people like you who condone and promote meanness, rude reality TV stars, and your opinion as you berate world renowned people like Janet Jackson, Gwyneth Paltrow, and others you slam on a daily basis.”
After reading that portion all I could say is WOW!!!!!! Somebody actually called Miss WENDY out on her shit. Now granted, I did see the video of Wendy crying her eyes out and proclaiming her sorrow for the death of Whitney Houston, admitting she was once a druggie herself and urging people to be there for others who struggle with this addiction. And altho I thought it was touching, the very next segement, she began to gossip about other stars who just so happen to be alive…in quote on quote “Celebrity News”… Careful Wendy. If you want to send out a message about helping people struggling with addiction, being that 20 to 30% of them are celebrities, how do you justify spotlighting gossip that push these STARS into depressive states.
So the question is this: Do we continue to support Wendy for giving us the latest celebrity news and HOT gossip???? or Are we TOO responsible for SUPPORTING the malice rumors and gossip that slowly destroy our beloved stars?????
I know in America it’s hard to make a HONEST living and it’s seems easier to make a dollar bringing someone else down. We see it at our schools, our jobs, our communities and various other places where STATUS is key. We live in a world where gossip, rumors and lies MAKE MONEY. So we have to ask ourselves. Do we hate the player or hate the game? Do we believe in karma? Is the MONEY really worth bring someone else down?…. I don’t know how WENDY would answer all these questions.
I heard Whitney Houston’s Bodyguard say, “Don’t be so HARD on our Stars, they give up their lives just for OUR entertainment…” and out of all the statement made that day, this one is VERY TRUE.
