Sherri Shepherd responded to Wendy Williams’ diss over the weekend by saying she’s “truly concerned” about the former daytime talk show host.
Williams appeared on Instagram Live with rapper Fat Joe recently and said she wouldn’t watch Shepherd’s takeover of her show because it’s not her “thing.” In response, the former “The View” co-anchor said she was not bothered by Williams’ comments.
“I did hear Wendy say she will not watch me on the new show. And that’s OK. You know, I understand,” Shepherd said on her own Instagram Live on Saturday.
The “30 Rock” alum, 55, also asked fans to “pray” for Williams, whose health has been the subject of a ton of speculation.
“She’s going through a lot,” Shepherd shared. “I’m truly concerned for her.”
A rep for Williams, 57, said at the time that the former VJ understood the corporate decision, but then Williams came forward and distanced herself from the statement. Instead, Williams has maintained that she’ll be returning to her time slot in the fall “bigger and brighter” despite the fact that sources close to production told Page Six that Debmar-Mercury is “100 percent committed” to Shepherd.
Our insider added that if and when the company felt Williams was ready to return to a daily live show, Debmar-Mercury would support her, but it certainly wouldn’t be this year as all of the company’s TV slots are filled.
Snoop Dogg had the internet in a stir over the weekend when he appeared to throw his hat in the ring to buy Twitter. It came after Elon Musk tweeted his plan to buy the platform is “temporarily on hold” even though he’s “still committed” to following through with the deal.
Snoop Dogg tweeted saying he might have to buy Twitter now.
Elon Musk tweeted fire emojis in response.
In a thread, the legendary rapper said his first line of business would be to get free internet connections on airplanes. He also said he’s fed up with how the app verifies bots who bug him in his direct messages. Snoop also said he’d immediately give everyone a blue checkmark.
Snoop then started the hashtag #WhenSnoopBuysTwitter and Twitter reacted with their wildest out of the box suggestions for the “Drop It Like It’s Hot” rapper.
Rajon Rondo is accused of pulling a gun on the mother of his children. Ashley Bachelor, Rondo’s longtime partner and the mother of his two children, has filed for an emergency protective order from the Cleveland Cavaliers point guard.
According to TMZ Sports, the protective order was filed in Louisville, asking for protection for herself and her son and daughter.
Bachelor states Rondo played video games with his son, Pierre before Bachelor asked the boy to separate laundry. Rondo then ripped the game console out the wall in a fit of rage, smashing outdoor lights, a coffee cup, and trash cans.
Rondo upset the kids, who saw all of the rage. Bachelor attempted to calm the situation, but Rondo threatened her with, “You’re dead.” Rondo left home but would return 15 minutes later, banging on the back door window with a gun. She asked Rondo to stop, but he would yell, “Go get my fucking son.” Bachelor did in fear of what Rondo would do next. Rondo would eventually “yank” the boy outside and ask why he was scared while he was still holding the gun. He would demand his daughter to come out, and he verbally reprimanded both children for being scared of him.
Rondo’s parents would come to the home. They were unable to calm him but did get him to leave.
The new protection order reads: “I am extremely fearful for my safety and for the safety of my children. Rajon has a history of volatile, erratic, explosive behavior. He is verbally, emotionally, and financially abusive. He physically hits our son and calls him names like ‘p***y’ and accuses him of acting like a ‘bitch.’”
The report also states Rondo calls his daughter “thot, bitch, and dickhead.”
Rondo has not been charged or arrested for a crime.
