Ok I'm thoroughly confused. Mayte's book's titled Betrayal? What? Is Wendy playing sabatoge games. All about his drug use? Who he hates in the music business? Wow. I'm kind of speechless now, if this is a taste of what's going on in that world it's out and out vicious.

Ok, so I'm not insane.

Wendy is a HUGE P fan. She took April 21st very hard. She even stated that out of respect she wasn't going to continue to report all the accompanying "dirt" as the estate/DNA/possible heir stuff was dragged through the media. Heck, she even christened her chair from now on "The Prince Chair" and hung a symbol on the back in reverence/memory of him and told her personal P stories. She loved him and this confused me to no end.

Plus, the book's name?

WTF?

I'm completely...I don't know.

I just saw the clip and I'm absolutely outraged about the horrible things she said about Prince! She evened dared to mention their baby! And the audience members were just eating it up, cheering and laughing at her disrespecting him! I haven't been watching much television lately as I've been engrossed with all things Prince in the last few months. Is this everyone's view point of him now? I thought she liked Prince! When he first past, I saw a clip somewhere about her saying how he made her pancakes and she seemed heartbroken. Why would she sit there and make fun of the way he died now? I am so disgusted, and saddened. I was never really a fan of her's but I wouldn't even keep her on my television for a second if I hit the channel by accident now... She's got some nerves to talk when there are rumors going around about her own drug use!

I'm completely confused about her demeanor and I'm shocked.

I still don't know what to think.

I'm hoping she was simply being sarcastic about MG's book and was being indelicate but it was her way of letting MG know she and the audience were not on board with it.

I follow Mayte on FB. For the most part, people - including me - have been supportive of her right to put this book out. I first heard of Wendy's comments on MG's page. I think WW was entitled to her own opinion, but she was wrong to speak as she did. I should add that, IMO, the description of the book as a "love story" doesn't sound as if it will include certain aspects of the relationship. I pre-ordered the book so I'll see when it comes out.

Maybe if you watch yourself you'll understand why we seem so incoherent.

This was awful. Saying that Prince was high for fun was tasteless, and all the bs about the "alleged" baby.
Question: were there any pics of Mayte pregnant back in the day? Was curious to see one.

I've only seen 1 pic of MG pregnant. She's with P at some sort of appearance. Her top is black with "BABY" and an arrow pointing to her belly in pink, but the top and everything around her is black so you don't really see her baby bump or anything defined.

--/ What clip are you looking at? She is attacking Mayte not so much as Prince. She thinks no one will interested in the book because no one really knew what was going in with Prince when he passed. The world remembers him as being on point and in control so who cares about the dirt now that he is gone. I am not a Wendy fan but I think she is correct with assessment.

I think it was shocking that she even mentioned P, then her dismissive tone was so insulting. I dunno

Mayte Garcia...

Wendy Williams opinion of the book project:

https://youtu.be/O_z59avOePU?t=824

I had heard about this yesterday while scrolling through facebook, but I didn't look into it really. I just watched the video though. She was being sarcastic saying the title was "Betrayal," basically saying the book itself is a betrayal. She has a sarcastic personality, and I guess that's what people like about her and watch her for; makes folks laugh. She can be funny. I think she did have some crappy comments though. She has the right to express her opinion, and Mayte has the right to ignore them. I'm just wondering where she is getting her information what is going to be in this book. She says she is going to talk about his drug use, the 'alleged' baby (insinuating there was not a baby?), and who he hated in the music industry. Well, how does she know this is going to be in the book? I have not heard what specifically is going to be in the book. On the description of the book, it says she tells the love story of her and Prince with the highs and lows but does not go into detail so where is Wendy getting her information from or is she just speculating?

She was insinuating that Mayte is betraying Prince by writing the book. She knows the real title of the book. If she is nosey enough to get someone to read it and tell her any new info/scoop, she might as well read it. What's the difference?

blondie1147, I'm not only a Wendy tv watcher but I'm a NYer who remembers listening to her radio show from Day 1 on my morning commute to work back in the day.

Of all the sarcasm I've heard her direct at folks over the years, I can't nreconcile her directing any at P considering how much of a fan of his she always said she was. Maybe she was tryin to lighten the mood and be funny, but...EPIC FAIL.

I found it shocking and tasteless.

On a side note, I found it interesting that the audience didn't clap when she asked if any of them cared about the book.

Mayte is a classy woman, there is no way she is going to spill dirt on the man she loved...still loves. She'd never do that. I believe this is just her way of getting over his death. The book is probably gonna be very sweet and respectful to Prince's privacy.

She's just too sweet of a woman to stoop to the level of dishing dirt on her first love. I 100% belive the book will just be full of nothing but positivity.

Purple Music is my drug and I'm jonesin!!!!!

Shocking! "Prince was high as a kite" and the audience laughs along. Wow. Just WOW. Oh yeah let's keep this silence and 'privacy' going, it's really working to clear things up!! Much better to see cheap shots being made at his expense and people laughing ffs.

Oh but the kicker - she interrupts her prince segment to market her clothes and boots?! Then says at the end she wants her assistant to read the book and highlight all the good bits?! What a hypocrite!!!

Ps I am Australian and have never heard of this woman and have no idea who she is. But this is was low.

That's what I was getting. Prince was nothing but a drug addict, period.

You're right; it wasn't appropriate.

Yes - the liner pics of the Emancipation album. There is a pic. of her holding her baby bump (wearing the wedding ring she subsequently photographed / catalogued for sale, and then withdrew from sale).

Glad Mayte responded to that. The whole thing was quite insulting to Prince, dismissing him as being just another druggie like so many others and the audience laughing at the basic jokes.
I don't know if mayte is genuine or looking to make a buck out of it. Or both. But to question the baby's existence, therefore the whole physical and psychological trauma associated with the loss of a child... cheap shot.

Wow, so Wendy Williams is a cunt then.

Hasn't Mayte already confirmed her book is called "Beautiful". Which WendyW deliberately ignores, makes up a title, pauses to try and sell you her clothing line before returning to Prince and encoraging the audience to laugh at the way Tyka looks.

Classy.
