Let’s just let that idea marinate for a moment. Wendy Williams apparently hasn’t grown out of the thinking your mom tells you when you get picked on in school. “They’re just jealous”  may be the underlying reason people talk bad about you in some cases, but when it comes to Wendy going under the knife and rocking terrible wigs, I think not.

The outspoken talk show host just underwent a makeunder for XOJane.com and when the layers of makeup and hair were peeled back Wendy also revealed how she feels about people who speak badly about plastic surgery:

“They are jealous. Because if I said to that person, ‘I got the doctor and I’m going to pay for it. Choose three things you want to do,’ believe me, they would get it done. They are very jealous and scared. Scared of what their other friends would say, or to break out of the box and be different. And being black? Ugh, please. My people will not go for any kind of surgery. We are supposed to be natural. Ugh, whatever.”

Or maybe they are somehow comfortable in the skin that they’re in and don’t feel the need to have work done to be attractive. Maybe they recognize the psychological issues that are painted all over plastic surgery recipients faces when they spend more time recovering from procedures every year than living their lives. And please, scared to break out the box and be different? These days, you’re actually unique if you haven’t had work done—backroom butt injection procedures included. Maybe there are people in the world who don’t want to walk around with the same skinny, pointy-tipped snout every other celeb has after they have a nose job. I know it’s a novel idea, but there are some people who are okay with aging gracefully—and having facial expressions.

I also find her disgust at black women wanting to be natural pretty amusing—and inaccurate. Maybe we’re not going under the knife 24/7 but we still heavily buy into weaves and fake nails and all of those other non-natural beauty accessories. And for the ones who don’t, how that is a problem I don’t know, especially when she qualifies her wig wearing, saying:

“The reason I wear the wigs is because my hair is naturally thin. And I have thyroid disease which I was diagnosed with 12 years ago. And thyroid disease thins your natural hair and your eyebrows. It thins all of the hair on your body, along with giving you the eye pop and the scary stare. That’s why I wear wigs. Because the hair I would want is just not what is growing out of my head. If I was a librarian with a smaller personality, then I would keep the hair that I have.”

So basically she would be natural if she wasn’t in the spotlight—sounds like she’s the one who’s scared to be different. I honestly don’t think people—particularly black women, since she singled us out—spend as much time hating on her beauty choices as she thinks we do. We have far more important things to attend to so to her whole jealous, scared, dare to be different, yay for plastic surgery PSA I say, ugh, whatever.

    Accusing others of jealousy is a huge sign of personal insecurity. If you’re comfortable with who you are and what you choose to do to feel good about yourself, you won’t care what others think.

    I’m not fan of weaves or plastic surgery, but I respect the rights of others to make those decisions for themselves if that’s what they choose.

    Good for her

    Her body, her life…who is to say she is wrong and if she is thats on her.

    Myself I always wanted a nose job. I think it is too big for my face and thats the only surgery I have ever wanted and no I do not hate myself. The most perfect nose I have ever seen is my aunts- small and flat.

    I have yet to see one of these women that I envy and I’m 70. They all look like they have been rolled out of the same machine. And Black women have really made a mess of themselves. They should sue the doctors that worked on them. My goodness, beautiful Black women have allowed themselves to be mutilated. Lil Kim whose music I never liked but thought her to be a cute little lady, now looks like a monster. And the white women with all these huge lips and boney cheeks, all look alike. do they check the mirrors. The perfect example is BIG ANGE on Mob Wives. These plastic surgeons must be laughing all the way to the bank. I can think of many words that I feel about their looks, but believe me, JEALOUSY ain’t one of them.

      Oh! I forgot about the hair. I am so sick of seeing all this weaved fake hair that’s all down everyone’s back whether it matches their facial features of not……is enough to make you itch. I keep wondering will they ever get enogh hair? As a Black woman I have just had the opportunity to lean that men weren’t to touch our hair….how sick is this?

      I am so sick of black women going out here purchasing these long curly ass wigs like they looking sharp when they look like something on Halloween Day. These women are completely bald, some of them don’t have ten strains on hair on there heads. I like Wendy, but those dam wigs got to go. Can you imagine when they take those wigs off, what you will see? Soory to say, they look like Aids or cancer patients.

    Umm hmmm so why is the wig BLONDE Wendy?

    On another note I think she has a point with the surgery thing.if black women want to get plastic surgery for themselves I think they should.I wouldn’t let people that would hate me regardless of my decision hold me back from getting to where I want to be physically.

    If a black women has a nose that is disproportionate to her face and wants a surgery I say go for it.That doesn’t mean go out and get a thin white looking nose.They can make your nose round like a black nose.You can just get a better black nose.Also as far as weaves go they make some with the texture and look of black hair.You could wear those too.
