I'm not surprised at her comments. She is not a nice person and she gives terrible advice during the AskWendy portion of her show. Also I didn't think she was a big fan of Prince because she made a comment about how she was enjoying listening to his music on a station after he passed away and as soon as any of his songs with a lot of guitar came on she had to switch the station.

Wendy was way out of line and was talking about stuff that she knows nothing about. Wendy obviously does not know much about Prince and I've detected some animosity towards him from her. Mayte has every right to write her book about her life.

Agree

Don't get Genesia' comment all twisted. She never said she was "siding with a person who said derogatory things towards Prince and his dead son" She only posted Mayte's minions were in this thread.

What is the intent here? Spreading rumors against anyone not siding with Mayte? I noticed how this has been a regular pattern amist a few Mayte's fans and leads me to wonder about intentions from her followers.

Thats a passive aggressive remark saying we are maytes minions, I'm not a huge mayte fan but I'm going to defend her if someone is on national TV saying that she allegedly had a baby.

And you have all right to do so Strawberrylova123. Your intent makes sense at 100%.

To build more credibility in your purpose however, it would be a more fair approach to not change a comment by another one smile

This does not surprise me, Wendy has always dipped her toes in controversy, that's how she's made her name. Her comments on Prince and the baby were totally disrespectful and her comments on Tyka, who isn't a celebrity, a low blow. I do not blame Mayte at all for firing shots back.

I agree, I think people have to remember that Wendy's show is not only shown nationally in America but is broadcast daily around the globe. I'm a Prince fan and not a Mayte fan but will back her to the hilt on this as Wendy's crass statement about the "alleged baby" are beyond low.

I support you both for that. Wendy was out of line. Her comments were inappropriate and disrespectful not only against Mayte who was the primary target but Prince, the baby, and Tyka.

What is important to remember in disagreement and conflict is to tell the Truth.

If Wendy Williams hasn't read Mayte's book then how does she know it's a betrayal to Prince? I take it she claims it's about his drug use. I almost get the impression she's jealous of Mayte.

Wendy is a balloon-titted, ugly idiotic sow. She can fuck right off. Thankfully, We don't get her silly shit in the UK, but i've seen YT clips of this moron at work. Worthless attention-seeking vermin. Shame on her employers. Tits indeed.

Yeah, we'll, we'll try to imagine what silence looks like.

:nod:

What I'm the most confused about is her tone. Everything she said is completely out of line and low, But the way she spoke of P, the baby... I just can't wrap my head around. Even if you don't like Mayte. She was disrespectful to more than just Mayte. I was never really into Wendy, she's always been a bit to gossipy and mean spirited for me. This just shows me that shes as nasty as I thought.

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.

no no no! Wendy is a dick! Always has been, always will be. Whether she's actually biologically a woman makes no difference in that, in any way whatsoever. bored2

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

That's what threw me for a loop, she really wasn't just having an opinion about the book she was being snide about the book, Prince and the baby.

Can't stand her talk to the hand It's not really a fair judgement, I admit. I experience her energy as a "vexation to the spirit" (as the "Desiderata" puts it) and couldn't even finish the first show I tried to watch.

The positive in this situation is how it has brought Mayte's fans AND some not-so-fan-of her together in her defense.

Clearly, the vast majority of people on this thread is outraged by Wendy Williams' statements for their being disrespectful to loved ones.

I also compliment Mayte for responding in a respectful manner and defending her son. clapping

I never watch her show, but when I watched her show in passing, I always hated the gossip on her show, even though this is how she became famous and made a name for herself, but with that said, I find her comments toward Mayte, her book, Prince, their son and Tyka disgusting and utterly appalling.

Wendy is out of order. I did not bother to watch the clip. It's not ok to talk about a sweet little innocent infant boy like that. As for Mayte, be prepare to deal with crap like this. The spotlight is not all rosey and she should know that. I guess she won't be on the Wendy show when the book comes out. This why Prince did not fool around the media. Prince is resting peace and his music will inspire people from years to come than her mindless goissping.

Wow. How utterly disrespectful to Prince, to Mayte and to all his fams. mad evil I've always hated Wendy Williams. I remember seeing a clip of the show on youtube where she said that Prince called her and said he watched and was a fan of her show or something. I've always wondered HOW or WHY that possibly could be true since all she ever did was gossip (loudly and annoyingly) about other people and celebs. That's totally the opposite of what P was about. I wonder if that was even true. I bet she made it all up. I can't believe she can't even get Mayte's name right! If your job is to know celebrities and thier families, she for sure knew how to pronounce her name. I think it was another way to be completley disrespectful. If I was in the audience, I would have threw whatever I could find around me at her and walked off the set, but not before calling her a total BI@#H.

I don't know a lot about legal issues, but couldn't Mayte sue her for slander? She's telling complete lies about her. Especially the book title. She pulled that out of thin air just for shock value. Sickening. disbelief

Prince was big on supporting black people of prominence. So since Wendy is the most successful black female talk show host out right now, he felt the need to support her.

I wish he would've been so generous when Tyra had her show.

It's only been a few months since his passing, but there will be books published about Prince by scholars and critics, to his housekeeper and gardeners for the foreseeable future and into at least the next 60
years.

There are still new Elvis and Beatles books releases every few years. I expect the same for Prince.

So I'm not surprised and I don't think this will be her only book on Prince. He may not be as mainstream as them, and may not be as profitable a subject, but he is definitely far more fascinating and talented all by his lonesome than anyone else.

Expect to know more than you ever thought possible about Prince. Brace yourselves, this is only the beginning.

Failed attempt at humor starts at 13:40 just so you don't have to sit through anything not relevant. She's doing what lots of folks are doing, feigning taking a higher ground about wanting Prince's privacy respected, but then giving us a wink and letting us know she wants to know all the funner facts in the book. Expect an apology about the reprehensible remarks about the baby though. Definitely crossed a line there.

Okay, I'm not crazy about the whole book thing, but because I'm nosy af I'm tempted to buy it but idk yet, anyway I liked Wendy, I really did and she can be funny at times but this time she crossed the line. Where the hell does she even get her info from? I mean everyone knows Prince and Mayte's baby died from a syndrome, any one with access to frickin Wikipedia can find that out. She made it look like they gave their baby away because he wasn't perfect, when really Prince did everything he could to make sure his son would live a comfortable life but it wasn't enough. Also, she is making Prince sound like a damn junkie and he got high for the hell of it. This man had a chronic hip pain and was prescribed a high dose of a lethal drug, which if I remember correctly was mislabeled. Wendy met Prince, she spent time with Prince and Prince actually considered her a friend and she goes off talking ish about him like she wasn't just kissing his heels just last year. She's messy and I hope karma doesn't mess her up too bad because she really has it coming.....okay, I'm done ranting....that felt good smile

wendy can be dreadful, that clip is more proof. at least she has stayed consistantly bitchy throughout her career. she appeared to enojy trashing all the parties involved. i wouldn't have minded if she had prefaced the segment with " i'm doing this for you, not because i care..." like i have seen her do with tori shilling and her sorry ass husband.

-/- to the comment about the second pregnancy and miscarriage- MG talked about that and had begun writing a book while prince was alive. this is not new. it would be interesting to know how much the book has changed from her draft circa 2012 and the one due next spring. i believe that would be the best indicator of her motives. not that i care about her motives i stand firmly in the camp of 'it's her life and story to share'.
