Live from New York City, it’s the Wendy Williams Show. ♪ Oh yeah! ♪
(upbeat music) ♪ Feel, feel, feel it! ♪ ♪ Feel it, feel it, feel it! ♪ ♪ Feel it, feel it, feel it ♪ ♪ Let’s go ♪ ♪ Come on, you need it ♪ ♪ How you doin’? ♪ ♪ How you doin’? ♪ Now, here’s Wendy! (cheering) (chanting) ♪ You doin? ♪ Thank you for watching our show. (cheering and applauding) Say hello to my co-hosts, my studio audience. How you doin’? How you doin’? I’m doin’ okay. Let’s get started. It’s time for. Hot Topics! Yes, come on! (upbeat music) (cheering and applauding) (sighs) Well, We love you, Wendy! We love you! Thank you. I love you more and thank you for making those fans. How endearing? All right, I can’t do that now, though. No, no, we already gave you. You could do it later.
Okay, I just don’t have it. They have probably– Just the fur cuffs. Oh. Fur cuff? Very nice. Let me see the fan. I like the fan. Oh yeah. (laughing) I bejeweled it, look. Cool, no, I see. (cheering and applauding) Yeah. You know we like the razzle dazzle here. Let me tell ya something right now. We’re almost 50 days into our knowledge about this coronavirus. I think they said 47 yesterday. I’m just rounding it up. Okay, so here’s what’s going on. Coachella, they’re saying, will most likely be postponed until October. Well, it’s a little chillier in October, so then the germs aren’t festering as much. Look, I don’t know what’s going on. (laughing) So if you’re going to Coachella, forget about it. Then they have another thing called Rage Against the Machine. It’s called the Stage Coach Festival. Oh, the state. Yeah, that’s what I was thinking of. That’s been canceled also. And that’s the one where the country artists, they festival out. Between these two concerts, both concerts bring a combined $1.4 billion each year. Wow. You see what I’m saying? I don’t even know what to believe about this corona because if you’re gonna put that kind of money, throw it off to the side. ‘Cause both concerts might not ever get done at all. I mean, they say postponed. Well, we don’t know what’s gonna happen in October. If you’re gonna put that kinda money on the line, then what’s in this for me and you? I mean, is the corona in here? (laughing) I have no idea. I have no idea. But there are new rules. The new rule is that I’m doing most of the show from right here in this chair. You all grab that microphone, we can do Ask Wendy. Talk across. Mm-hm. Mm-hm. (laughing) I’m very serious.
(applauding) I don’t feel sick. I don’t feel sick, but who wants to get sick? (crowd responds) I mean, I thought I was good with the elbow bumpin’, but I’m not elbow or bumpin’ either. (laughing) It’s very unfortunate. Speaking of fortune, Wheel of Fortune. They will be taped with Alex Trebek, who you know is battling pancreatic cancer, and he will have no audience. And also Jeopardy, you heard about this. I mean, Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune with– Pat Sajak. Pat Sajak.
Pat and Vanna. Right, so it’ll just be he and Vanna. She’ll be flipping the cards. And there’ll be no audience, but he was battling the stomach thing. So they’re on the sickly list. Now, if you’re sickly, they don’t want you coming out of the house. But sickly is relative to how you think of sickly. I mean, they’re also older men. Older people. So sometimes just all right. Well, all right. Personally speaking, they both have so much money I don’t know why they’re just not in the house. (laughing) You know? They don’t need that money. No. How many people in here have asthma? Clap. (clapping) Okay, well, you realize you all are supposed to be home. Up here spreading it. Suzanne. Brendan has it. Yeah, well he’s supposed to be home too. Uh-huh, uh-huh. No, he’s gotta come into work with me. Um-hm, but he has it, but he has to take medicine every day for it. The pump? Yes. Yeah.
Yeah, morning and night. Well, they’re saying asthma is a thing. And anybody over 50. Why am I here? (laughing) And then, look, look, the strip clubs are now involved. Oh, no.
(audience reacts) Okay, see. Now, see. (laughing) Some strip clubs are giving out hand sanitizers and face masks to customers who want them. One in particular is called The Little Darling. That’s out in Vegas. I’ve heard of that place. And then there’s one in Tampa on account of I used to do business in Tampa, so I know about this place, (laughing)
been there before, called Deja Vu Showgirls in Tampa. These two places, are they leading? First of all, if the corona’s out here, why are you busy going to a strip club? (laughing and clapping) Do you need a lap dance that bad? (laughing) If I was a stripper, I wouldn’t even show up for work. I’d go back to school and get a formidable job, but this is not good. No. And you know I love the girls at the strip club, but girls all that sweatin’? (laughing) That’s what I’m saying. And then all the schools that are closed. It was a constant scroll on the news this morning. I don’t know whether you’ve got dressed watching the news. Constant scroll of school systems being closed and schools being closed. And the people who have kids in elementary school, how do you deal with that? If one teacher is sick, then you send that one teacher home. Find a new school facility because if you’ve got a seven-year-old, now all of a sudden how do you go out as a parent and make your living because now you gotta stay home with the kid? The school is not providing daycare for the kids. Or at least I haven’t heard that. I have not heard that. So the schools are not. And Cory Feldman, I am mad at you. Oh. Okay, woke up this morning and I see your text, Marco. ‘Cause I had already gone to sleep. I didn’t even know what you were talking about. You said, “Why isn’t this working?” I thought you text somebody different. I totally forgot about it when I woke up this morning. I asked Marco to watch it. I asked the staffers around here to watch it, bring in your receipts, hand it into HR, you’ll get your $20 back. (laughing)
Marco, look. Look, look, look, so I call up. Well, Boof actually called me up. Tried to make me break Lent. Oh. Well, look. No, but he’s very thoughtful. And he knows I like to eat. He likes to watch me eat. So he was in Brooklyn and he called me up. He said, “You know, I have to DJ tonight, “but I’m getting you some food. “I just sent you the menu.” Isn’t that thoughtful? Yeah.
Yeah. I sent you the menu on your phone. Look to see what you want. And so I said, “Just bring me the macaroni pie.” You know, ’cause I can eat that. I didn’t give that up for Lent. I gave up beef, except for on March– 17th. the 17th, yup. On Tuesday, Saint Patrick’s day, I gotta have my corned beef and cabbage and I want somebody to come in here and cook it. (clapping) Perfect. I gotta. Yeah. And I gave up social media. I’m not messing around. So you go to wendyshow.com. Whatever these people put up there is what they put. I’m not putting, nope. Oh, and the Saint Patrick’s day parade is canceled in Staten Island and Boston? Do you know how Irish both places are? Very. Do you know how disheartening it is to know that Manhattan’s having our parade, I don’t mind that, but everybody in the world now. They canceled the one in Ireland. How you cancelin’ a Saint Patrick’s day parade in Ireland? And where not s’posed to be worried about corona? But you want everybody to come into our city? Coughin’? (laughing) Yup, yup. And I know my crew, everybody turns Irish on Saint Patrick’s day. (laughing) You all, I’ll order you some hooch and put it around in the back, okay? (clapping)
Just don’t go out there. Yeah, don’t get sick. So I tell Boof, I said, “All right, Boof, the macaroni pie “and then surprise me with something else.” And I’m allergic to nothing. I always have to remind him of that. And so what does he bring? He brought oxtail empanadas. (audience reacts) Honey, I didn’t swallow, (laughing) but listen, no. But I chewed, a little bite. ‘Cause everything was still hot, which is great. I chewed a little bite. The crust was flakey and delicious. It squirted in my mouth. It was all juicy with the right amount of juice. It was all shredded. Now, who doesn’t love an oxtail? I know that’s the– (cheering and clapping) Oh. You see. You see. Now, see. I just hate to be reminded that it’s the tail of the cow. (audience reacts) The tail of the cow. And I never had and empanada ‘fore, so then I spit it back out, threw it away and wrapped them ever so delicately, put them in the freezer ’cause I’m waiting for Lent to be over. Between that and a salami sandwich, mm-hm. (laughing) So anyway, back to Corey Feldman. Corey, you know I love you. And we’ve known each other for a long time, but you knew that this was never going to happen. Or at least I did. While you were here sitting on the couch, there were a few things that you said that I’m looking at real crookedy. Like number one, that you will act again. No you won’t. (laughing) People aren’t hiring Corey or Feldman. You know what I’m saying? He’s a lovely man, but he’s part of a movement that is so necessary. Molesting and raping children. It’s so necessary, but even as he was talking about promoting that thing for $20 that we were supposed to be watching last night at 11, I knew in my mind. I said, “This is not gonna happen.” But I put Hot Topics on it. To pay the $20 and so on and so forth. Boofy, he helped me organize. Well, he had to go to the club. So he was only over just to help me. “Can you just hook it up, Boof? “Hook it up.” And you saw, Boof, nothing happened. He helped me send the $20 and everything. Now, I want my $20 back. (cheering and clapping) Marco, $20. We got like three different $20 players in Hot Topics. Yes. How many of you all watched it? Well, two of us tried to watch it. I mean paid the $20. Yeah.
Because we want our money back.
Me and Jen Brookman. Okay. Yeah.
So good. Corey, you owe this show $80. (laughing) On the strength of I don’t even know where you thought this was actually going to happen. He held a live screening in LA at the same time, 11 o’clock. But it got sabotaged. He’s blaming it on the hackers. We had one of our spies right there. That’s how we got this footage. There’s Corey in the black on the stage. We don’t have the volume for you because it was really muffled. But all the seats were full. I mean, you see a few empty seats there in the front. Would you look at that? (audience reacts) Would you look at that? And they saw it because they were there, but we couldn’t see it, so they don’t need their money back. Clap if you all tried to watch. Clap if you tried. Oh. (laughing) One person. Which one? Who tried? Zoom her in on the camera. With the crown. Oh, with the crown. Happy birthday. No, behind you.
Listen. Oh, behind. Happy birthday to you too. All right, did it come through for you? I planned my whole day around this. You know what a struggle it is to be up at 11 o’clock when you gotta be up? I took a nap around five o’clock. (laughing) Then Boof called like 10:30. He came through with the food. By the time I woke up, I was refreshed. I was like, “Come on, Boofy. “Help hook this up. “Let’s watch together. “I paid the $20 already.” He said, “No, I gotta go to the club. I said, “All right, well good. “Put the food down and hook it up.” All right. We learned, well at least I learned, nothing new about what these people found out inside. What they found out inside, mind you, I went to bed like 10 after 11. I’m done. Charlie, I mean, excuse me, Corey accused Charlie Sheen of raping Corey Haim when he was 13-years-old. Now, the two Coreys are best friends. One passed away. Haim passed away. I heard this before years ago, you all. So for me, personally, as a gossip-nista or whatever, I wasn’t shocked. I wanted to hear something different. Now, maybe you’re shocked at that, but don’t you remember that came out? Don’t you remember the movie that was on? I’m not sure what– Lifetime. It was on Lifetime? Mm-hm.
Now, look here, Lifetime. I might let him keep my $20 or send it to you when he sends it to me if you just play that movie tonight. I’ll get another good ol’ nap. I’ll stay up ’til 11 and wait. That movie was really, really good. There was a scene where Haim and Feldman were on the set with, yeah, the tale to two Coreys. It tells you just enough. Anywho, there was a scene where Haim and Feldman are walking and they get to Charlie Sheen’s trailer and Haim starts to walk up to the steps and into the trailer and looks back at Feldman like, “Help.” Now, you see? Yeah. Now, you see? And Charlie Sheen had denied all of this. And the National Enquirer then followed up by writing about it. I remember the article. I remember the movie. I remember that scene. I wasn’t shocked by any of this, Corey Feldman. You know? But anywho, uh-un, uh-un. I’m not talking to you now uh-uhn. (laughing) Uh-un, uh-uh. (applauding) And he was raising money, so chances are you won’t get your $20 back ’cause your $20 was supposed to be going so he got a bigger server or something like that. Right. Just post that on YouTube. Just put it out! No, the YouTube will be hacked as well. How about just go home and sit down and be glad that you’re not dead in the Gowanus River.
Right, right. (applauding) For talking about such high-powered people. Right. In such a way, you know? Did he ever talk about who touched him or it was only– He did. He named two men, but we don’t really, I’ve never heard of these two men. One was a former manager and another was a night club owner. Oh. Well, anyway. So you know I love Court TV. I love talk shows. I love Court TV. Daytime TV’s my favorite. Over at Divorce Court, do you watch Judge Lynn Toler? Mm-hm, yes.
(applauding) What I love about Judge Lynn is she is a real judge. She’s married and stuff. But she’s taking judging to a whole new level because she wears lip gloss like a stripper. (audience reacts) Oh, her lips are always poppin’, a little too poppin’ for a judge, but I got used to it and I like it, right? Then she talks real slick to the people she’s trying to judge. I like it. Then, she started showing thigh. She wears a really short judge thing. You see here thigh popping out? It’s not very judge-like, but this is what you want. I’ve gotten used to it. Then she changed her set. It doesn’t even look like a judge’s proper setting. It looks like she… Look, look, all I’m saying is, but judge says she’s leaving the show after being there for 13 years. Leaving the show. Just sayin’. Maybe she was fired, I don’t know. (audience reacts) I don’t know, why would you get rid of her? Everybody in this room just lit up and clapped. I watch her every day. She’s friend of our show, but we have another friend to our show too, Judge Faith Jenkins will be taking over. Oh. (applauding) I love her too. Yeah. She had her own judge show. I think it still plays in certain pockets of the country, but it doesn’t get played on the main TV anymore. But she’s younger, so maybe you could say, “Well, she’s younger.” Well, no she might be younger, but this Toler is still hittin’ and holdin’. You know? And she’s got the hot plaintiff. I mean bailiff. (laughing) The bailiff. Little man with the little swirl about him. Right. I don’t know what his background is, but I like to watch him. (laughing) Good, high, hard, booty. (laughing) But if you noticed, every day, it’s the same show. So would you just do something, you judge shows? Fans are upset about Judge Lynn leaving, but she did post a video being a good sport. Take a look. Judge Faith, she’s good lookin’, and she’s smart, and she’s capable, and I think she’ll take Divorce Court to another level. People don’t like new things, but I’m saying give her a chance ’cause she’s really good at what she does. She’s gonna be different. She’s gonna be good. (applauding) So that’s how you go out. Congratulations, Judge Faith. Oh, and Judge Faith, wait, the best part of the story, congratulations on your wedding over the weekend. She married who? Kenny Lattimore. (applauding) Judge Faith, I have a secret to tell you, but I can’t. (audience reacts) Nope. By the way, no, no, anyway. Look, so weird, I was about to hop up off my chair, but nope, I’ll stay seated. Nobody cough. Norman, stay at your podium, don’t touch anything. Right (laughs). Suzanne, don’t walk too close. Use your scarf as a mask. Oh, I’ve been wearing this, Yup.
Uh-huh. And we’ve got more great show for you. We’re gonna do the best we can. (applauding) Shark Tank’s Daymond John is here. So grab a snack and come on back. (upbeat music) (upbeat music) (chanting) Shout out to the control room or somebody. You know, there are some Hot Topics that I still wanted to cover, that story about that Olive Garden worker. I gotta get to that today. And I also wanna talk about Katie Couric being quarantined. Self-quarantined. I mean, there were some other stuff to talk about and since I’m doing the show from over here, I’ll put my feet up on the couch after Daymond leaves and maybe we can continue. And then we’ll do the Ask Wendys (cheering and applauding)
And, yeah, more Hot Topics. More Hot Topics. Anyway, I love our first guest on Shark Tank and I know you do too. The show is so wildly popular. He now has a new book. It’s called Power Shift. It’s available now. Please welcome back to our show, Daymond John. (upbeat music)
(cheering and applauding) How you doin’? (chanting) Thank you. Nice to see you again! Nice to see you! How are you? Can we give you some shoe cam? Oh, yeah. Yeah, let’s do it.
Yeah, there you go. That’s my grand voyage. I’m wearing my Bomba socks. Nice boots. And my FUBU suit.
Yeah, the socks. A FUBU? You make suits now? Yeah, we do. Absolutely.
That’s a good look. Thank you. Thank you. And the cuff links and stuff. Yeah, I try to keep myself together.
Back to the socks. So I understand out of all the sharks on Shark Tank, you’re the one who invested and ran away with more than the others. The number one investment in Shark Tank is by me, Bomba Socks, so if you ever see the other sharks, remember they’re underachievers. And that I–
(laughing and applauding) I love you all’s relationship on the show. Thank you. What’s so special about these socks? Every time they sell a pair, they give a pair away to the homeless because that’s a big challenge for the homeless.
Aww. Yeah, sure. And they sell direct to customers and they’ve given over 30 million pairs of socks so far. (cheering and applauding)
Wow. That’s the way you do it. Yeah. So what are your thoughts on this coronavirus affecting business in general? Well, it’s affecting businesses. A lotta businesses will crumble. A lotta businesses will say, “Hey, I don’t need to depend “on China for stuff. “I need to manufacture in the United States.” But more importantly, how can people right here learn from this? When they’re going home and the companies are saying, “Stay home,” if you’re saving three hours a day, like you were talking about the girls in the adult entertainment industry. If you’re saving three hours a day, don’t treat it like Saturday, use a hour and a half of that to maybe get digital curriculums or start getting healthier.
Oh yeah! Use it for yourself so when this goes away, you’re that much better to either leave that job or get a new job. Open up your own business. Listen, this thing is here. Nothing we can do about that. What can you do for yourself? (clapping) Thanks. What do you do? I mean, are you hugging? I’m not hugging. I’m not touching anybody. Pretty much, but I’m also trying to learn how– You’ve got children. I have children. You’ve got to school them.
I have to be careful about that as well. I have to now make sure that my staff can work externally, if that comes to that point. So I need to know that I need to be up-to-date with technology. So I need to learn all that stuff as well. Okay, so Shark Tank is in it’s 11th season. Yeah. Highly entertaining.
(applauding) Yep. Now, I was really shocked that Barbara Corcoran was scammed out of over $400,000 through the internet. Yeah. How did that happen? She’s so smart. By the way, it’s her birthday. Happy birthday, Barbara.
Happy birthday, Barb. Yeah. (cheering and applauding) Listen, when the criminal’s out there and they’re trying to get you, they’re trying to get you whether it’s through millions or whether through this, through that. You can’t think like criminals. Most people are good people and so they got over $400,000 by changing a little letter in the email, however, a lot of people don’t know, Robert is one of the top 10 cyber crime experts in the world. And so what people can learn from this is after the money left her account, Robert called her and said, “It’s still in the bank “for 48 hours. “Don’t try to go to lawyers. “Call the bank. “Freeze it. “Let them know what happened.” She got her money back. (applauding)
Wow. Wow. I like her personality. She’s a weird woman. She’s absolutely crazy and she’s a predator. Yeah, well, don’t say that. (laughing) But she’s so weird it’s comical.
That’s a good one, yeah. She had a birthday (laughing) that you attended That’s her in the casket. (audience reacts) She said it was a surprise birthday party, but we didn’t realize the surprise was for us. She was in the casket. She said, “I wanna write my own obituary.” And you’re over there kissing her? Yeah. Did you feel close to death? No, I didn’t. And then she got up and she started doing ballroom dancing the rest of the night. She said she always wanted to dress herself for her own funeral, so she made sure she was looking good. She’s crazy. (laughing and clapping) All right. So, you know, even you with your fancy career now and all your businesses, your heart lies in hiphop. Yes.
And what do you think about Chuck D kickin’ Flavor Flav out of Public Enemy? Breaks my heart. It’s like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, taking it apart. That’s nice. Chuck D’s always gonna be Chuck D. We’re gonna respect him, but you gotta have. But he was the original hype man. They’ve been together 40 years. They need to work this thing out. Absolutely. (applauding)
Yeah. I don’t think it’s good business for either one of them. It’s not good business. Nobody wins. Nobody’s gonna go see them.
Only the lawyers are gonna win in this case. Exactly. Exactly. Flav can’t do it by himself and Chuck can’t do it by himself. He might think he’s smart, but uh-uhn, uh-uhn.
(laughing) All right, so Megan Thee Stallion’s suing her record label. She signed a faulty contract. We both come from music. We both know that usually the first contracts people sign are not worth anything. Right, right, right. But they’re so enamored by being famous and potentially rich. Now, she’s Megan Thee Stallion and she wanted to renegotiate. They said, “No, and we’re putting a freeze on your music.” Yes, in all reality, how many people in the audience have heard for the last 30 years that record contracts are bad in the beginning, right? (clapping)
Yes. So you know you can go get legal representation, right? So she was aware that she can get legal representation, so right now, because she’s hot, she’s pissed off. But they put a lotta money into that. She should have gotten great legal representation. In other words, there’s no way out. There’s no way out of that one. No, there’s a settlement potentially–
By the way, and on the Hot Topics I also, excuse me, wanna mention Nikki Minaj’s brother. That needs to be talked about. I’m tired of sitting on that story. (laughing) Sorry. It’s a different kinda show. I’m trying to sit over here.
Yeah, I don’t know much about that one though. Yes, you do. No, I just heard a little whispers. I don’t know anything about it though. Yeah, yeah, well he’s facing 10 years in jail. Oh, really? Mm-hm. And she might have to move ’cause he’s gotta register as that sex. Wait, I don’t wanna tell the story with you. He won’t get corona then. He’ll be away. Well, no. Did you hear in New York? Oh, New York state hand sanitizers. I wanna talk about that too. Yeah, you heard about that. I did hear about that. (laughing) Thank you for being part of my last book. You actually made it a best seller. Thank you.
Thank you. (applauding) And thank you for the plaque and the stuff. No, it was a letter opener. Yep. Thank you for the letter opener and thank you for the autographed copy for my son.
Inspiring people. You’ve been doing your own power shift for the last year. I’ve been very impressed by you. Let’s talk about this book. It’s called Power Shift. How many books have you written? This is your second one?
This is my fifth. Fifth one. Okay, what’s this one about? This one is about all the people who have approached me, saying that they just felt that somebody was in charge of their power or some power was taken away from them, or they need permission, for somebody to give them power. So I’m giving them the permission right now. You don’t need permission by anybody to take power in your life and a lotta people think that negotiating, which is the only thing that separates us successful and not successful people, is a transactional like on Shark thing, but it’s not. It’s about building influence like you’ve done for the last 20-30 years. It is about then negotiating what’s in the best interest of the person across the table and then developing that relationship to do 10 or 20 other deals after that. What advice would you give to… What’s your best advice on becoming successful? Everything you just said, or is it a little bit more. It is a lot of that, but it’s also knowing your why. Why are you doing it? What is the purpose you’re doing for? A lotta people don’t realize what are they doing it for are they doing it for fame or for fortune? Because their parents wanted them to? Because they wanna be liked on Instagram by a whole bunch of people that they can’t stand? What is your purpose of doing this? Why are you going so hard? And when you get to that goal, what are you gonna do with it? Money doesn’t mean everything. Money, it just drives up to your problems in a brand new Bugatti. And doing what your parents want doesn’t mean everything. You gotta do what you want and you gotta be true to who yourself is. And honestly, don’t try to put on this fake facade. Old Dirty Bastard was a old dirty bastard and he was very happy with that. (laughing) I’m gonna cut you. (laughing) I’m gonna give you a good old paper cut from one of the pages in your book. Daymond John, he’s so entertaining. (applauding)
And thank you so much for coming and talking with us.
Thank you for having me. Studio audience, he’s generous enough. You’re all going home with your copy. (cheering and clapping) And we’ll be right back. (upbeat music)
So good. (chanting) (upbeat music) (chanting) What a day. This is the way you make Tuesdays better. Yeah.
(applauding) All right, now look. Let’s go. More Hot Topics, okay. Real quick, so Katie Couric is self-quarantined. She was around someone this weekend who had the virus. Who? His name is Rick Cotton. He’s the Port Authority chief. Right, the chief of Port Authority with some beautiful swirly hair. Now, this is a side view, but when I saw him on TV, I was like, “Wow, that’s some good hair.” Anyway, but he’s uh-uhn, uhn. And so Katie is friends with him and was with him over the weekend. And then she gets on her social media and she wishes him well on social media, but people have already seen the story that he’s got the, or there’s something going on, and people start screaming at her in her own social media like, “What do you mean you wish him well? “Are you still walking around doing that Amazon show,” or what does she do? Oh Yahoo? Yeah. Yeah, I think she does– Reporting to work and stuff? Right and does the– Get outta here. Stay in the house, both of you. (laughing and clapping) So then, Mayor de Blasio’s on TV yesterday and he doesn’t wanna panic us. They cut right into the view. This is what I noticed though ’cause I can hear corona stuff all day long. I was distracted by Jesus. (laughing and clapping) Look, look, look. I don’t know who this man is, but I would love for him to come to our show one day and sit right next to me, well, a little bit over there. Uh-huh, and do the whole Hot Topics with closed captioning. I mean, you know. (clapping)
Yeah. Yeah. And then our Governor Cuomo. All right, so he gets on TV talking about New York state hand sanitizer. Made by the prisoners. Good morning, prisoners. (laughing) I mean, I know you have to make busy while you’re in prison, but I like it better when my prisoners are studying or making a license plate, or in the back crushing rocks with that heavy mallet. I don’t want my prisoners making something that’s supposed sanitize my hands. You’re in there ’cause you’re filthy. (applauding) Get outta here. Not saying you can’t be rehabilitated, but here’s something. Suzanne, you know what I’m saying? Yeah. There’s something about that. Nope, I’m not buying that. No, but I’d like to have a bottle just for prosperity. You think you can draw one up? Right, if you can find one. Did you hear about that candle that smells like Gwyneth Paltrow’s vagina? (audience reacts) I didn’t bring it out here, but I have it, right? First of all, it’s so disgusting. Very expensive and every on sold out. I had no idea Hot Topics surprised me with this. By the way, it doesn’t smell like fish. (audience reacts) It smells like flowers, you know. Whatever. She’s trying to be shocking by saying. “It smells like my vagina.” (laughing) How you gonna display this when your mother comes over? (laughing) You know what I mean? (laughing) And then this young lady, she’s only 16 years old. A nice chocolatey girl, working at the Olive Garden in the Midwest, right? There she is. Now, who doesn’t like the lasagna over there? I know the real Italians say it’s all fake Italian food, but I’m not Italian, so I don’t mind an Olive and a Garden. (laughing) The food is inexpensive. It’s one of the first places you go for a date when you’re young. You know what I mean? Here in New York it’s BBQ, but in the suburbs, the boy takes you to Olive Garden. And you eat those good breadsticks. (laughing) Please. And then the bill comes. You’re like, “That’s it?” Wow. Well, I don’t know. Look, I’m not suggesting you do anything. I’m just giving you a story. So this young lady’s a hostess in the Midwest at Olive Garden. Her name is Amarie, Amara. Amirah. Amirah– Donahue.
Donahue. She and her mom, by the way, are watchers of our show. I have no idea where that came into our Hot Topics meeting. How’d you find that part out? Because we talked to her. And you told her you’re from the show? Yeah. Did she ask you not to do the story? No. All right, well I’m gonna keep talkin’ then. (laughing and clapping) So, how you doin’, Donahues? How you doin’? Yeah, so Amirah Donahue claims that, okay, she’s the hostess. She overheard a white customer demand to be served by someone who wasn’t black. (audience reacts) First of all, I don’t even believe that I’m telling you. What is going on out here? Okay, so then she lawyered-up, okay. She’s at the press conference with her lawyers. Amirah says that the customer then made comments, saying that she was disrespectful, Amirah, and should work at a strip club. (audience reacts) And she could be overheard by this young woman who didn’t jump in and knuckle her fists. Instead, she just stood there like, “Oh, my gosh!” The customer, the white customer, also insinuated that not only should she work at a strip club, but that she couldn’t speak English. Wow. Amirah said that she was so shocked because, you know what, and here’s the PSA resistance. Her manager, Amirah’s manager at that Olive Garden, did what the white customer requested. Aww. And replaced the black waitress, the server. I don’t know whether it was a man or a woman, but a black person. Uh-huh, with someone other than, like, white. She says that the manager told the customer that the customer’s always right. And the customer stayed there and ate. Olive Garden fired the manager after a disgusted customer who saw all this going on, posted it on Facebook. (applauding) And now Amirah says she’s been threatened by the staffers there. She hasn’t quit yet. She hasn’t quit, right? Right.
She’s still working there, which is good. No, I don’t think I’d quit. I mean, I would need encouragement because the first thing you’d wanna do in a situation like that is quit and just charge it to more racism. ‘Cause when you’re of a particular, anything other than white, we go through it all the time. But this young girl at 16 years old, and her mom, they are sticking it in there. So she’s gotta go to work today, after high school, and she’s being bullied at work, she says. People don’t like her. “Why’d you talk about the manager?” The manager has been fired, but so what? So. Well, I don’t know about you. I can get over those bread sticks. (laughing and applauding) Only because it doesn’t look good for any of he Olive Gardens anywhere. Olive Garden, you’re owned by a corporate situation and if you weren’t gonna step in and flatten this right away, and this young lady has to sue, then what does it say about the Olive Garden in Times Square? What does it say about the Olive Garden over there at the Livingston Circle, which I don’t know whether it’s still open, but anyway, you know what I’m saying? (laughs) Right, exactly. Well, clap if you don’t care, you’re still eating at the Olive Garden. Just go ahead. (light clapping) Oh yeah. Two white people and a black man up there. (laughing) I’m gonna come cough on all three of you. I think we have Ask Wendy coming up next. We’ll be right back. (upbeat music) (chanting) (upbeat music) We’re back. This is Sultan. She’s from Yonkers and she’s an account executive. Hi Sultan. Welcome to the show. How you doin’, Wendy? I’m not sure. (laughing) All right, we’re gonna play sketchy celebrity, okay? Okie dokes. All right. You’re gonna have 20 seconds to guess what celebrity that we’re sketching out. I can give you help if you want. Okay. Okay. Go! (fast music) A clue? She sings like an angel. Okay. She was big in Vegas. She’s single. Her husband passed away. Celine Dion! Yes!
(bell dings) (clapping and laughing) Yay! There you go. That’s a 60-minute massage at Haven’s Spa. Thank you. All right. Awesome!
Thank you for being here.
Thank you, Wendy! Bye. (upbeat music) (upbeat music) (chanting) Well, apparently, the way the show is going today, we may not have enough time to get to Nikki Minaj’s brother, but let me tell you something, Nikki. That’s gonna be my first story tomorrow. And I’m gonna lead with this, ya shoulda never married him. Because now you’ve ruined everything about what your brand could be again. You’re never gonna stand a chance when you’re with a man who pulls a knife at rape point, you know? A molester. A registered sex offender. You’re never going to stand a chance with John Q public because there’s only one thing worse than touching children and pulling knives and that’s murder. By the way, he did go to jail for manslaughter. Oh, I think I just did the story. Nope, nope, nope. Get to diggin’. There’s more on it. Everybody get to diggin’. Okay?
(applauding) Get to diggin’. Everything you wanna know about this show, and what a show it is, is at wendyshow.com. We’ll be right back. (cheering and applauding)
(upbeat music) (upbeat music) (chanting) They told me I made a mistake and called Nikki Minaj’s brother instead of husband, but the brother’s already in jail. Look, if you are ever in New York, just wear a mask and get over here right away. Help me do this show. The tickets are free. Go to wendyshow.com. Are you having a good time? Yes!
(cheering and applauding) All’s I’m saying. We’ll be right back. (upbeat music) (chanting) Oh, excuse me. I’ve had it. This is rolled up paper. (laughing) Look, look. Tomorrow, Billy Gardell is here. Love you for watching and I’ll see you next time on Wendy. How you doin’? (coughs) Nice.
