Wendy Williams gets called out for “Throwing Shade” at Holly Robinson Peete’s Family Show




There was some “shade” thrown on Friday edition of  ‘Wendy Williams Show’  and Actress, Holly Robinson Peete has come out to address it.

Wendy Williams was discussing rumors of Victoria Beckham and David Beckham getting a reality show and she was of the opinon that it wasn’t the best idea because the “bar has been set so high” and people “like to see dysfunction and fighting and discourse.”

She then moved on to  Holly’s newest reality show titled ‘For Peete’s Sake’.

Here’s what Wendy said:

“Holly, Rodney, You know I love you Peetes. I tried but I got to tell you something. There’s no place on TV anywhere it seems for shows like this,” she explained. “The bar has been risen. Ms. Peete is 80 years old, she’s dating, she’s cute but no one cares.”

“Holly’s got the cute kids with Rodney. They’ve been married forever, but I don’t think people care,” she continued. “That’s sad for us, for TV watchers. Not for people who try to keep it together and be family and be good examples. That’s all.”

Holly went on to Twitter to reply Wendy and express her views:

“Dear @WendyWilliams #ForPeetesSake is resonating deeply esp w special needs #autism families. I know positivity isn’t your thing but it’s OK,” she tweeted. “If u think #ForPeetesSake’s only about cute kids n 80 year mom dating then u didn’t watch it. spraying #shade repellent on you.”

She cryptically added, “When negative people try to pointlessly attack your positivity it’s only a sad commentary on their own inner darkness. Amen? #ForPeetesSake.”

Holly’s best Friend, Actress Leah Remini also weighed in on the matter:

    Wendy saying it like she sees it. Holly and Leah shouldn’t take the bait or na them go tire. Wendy and Linda Ikeji should be friends – making money from shading celebs and keeping me entertained.

    I was under the impression that Wendy was saying the show is so clean and wholesome there is no place for it to fit in with the ratchetness and crudeness that dominates reality TV. I personally don’t watch reality shows so who knows.

      thats what she was saying oo I watched the episode.. Wendy wasn’t throwing shade.. she was saying that the peetes much like the Beckham have no business in reality TV because their family epitomises the wholesome “family next door” … but because these people don’t knw hw to comprehend thy r trying to come for her
