WENDY WILLIAMS was doing her “Hot Topics” segment the other day, and brought up CARRIE UNDERWOOD’s accident back in November when she fell on her front porch . . . and then needed stitches on her face.
Wendy said that she “didn’t know a whole bunch about” the accident, and although that would have been the perfect place for her to stop, she didn’t. Instead, she suggested that Carrie LIED about the whole thing.
Quote, “[Carrie] released on Twitter that we might not recognize her when it’s all said and done. I don’t know what that means. An excuse for a facelift? But no, we’re cynical. She was already cute, so I don’t know what she’s doing or what happened.”
As you can imagine, that bit of nonsense was all over the place yesterday, which is probably what Wendy Williams was hoping for. A “source” told “Hollywood Life” that she wants to have Carrie on her show to clear the air.
(That’s right, Wendy Williams would like Carrie to go on her show and clear up a rumor that SHE started. )
A source told Hollywood Life that Carrie is offended and hurt that Wendy was able to make this kind of accusations.
‘Carrie feels like her integrity has been attacked when Wendy accused her of lying just to be able to cover up a facelift. Carrie is furious that anyone would think she would be anything but completely honest with her fans. Carrie takes Wendy’s accusations very seriously,’
Tonya Harding Gets Slammed On Live TV
Tonya Harding did an interview with Piers Morgan yesterday on “Good Morning Britain”, and it got so tense that she almost cut it off in the middle. (She got upset because Morgan told her that Nancy Kerrigan was the real victim, but she was trying to talk about how the new biopic “I, Tonya” deals with her past as a victim of domestic abuse. She ended up continuing the interview.)
ABC’s Version of “American Idol” Won’t Show Bad Auditions
There’s no doubt that one of the things that made “American Idol” an immediate sensation was the BAD AUDITIONS. But a lot has changed in reality TV, and “Idol” wants to change with it.
So when ABC brings “Idol” back, they’re doing away with those. Showrunner Trish Kinane says, quote, “It doesn’t feel comfortable to put borderline unstable people up on stage and laugh at them.”
That doesn’t mean every audition will be SERIOUS, necessarily.
She says, quote, “We want the humor, but we don’t want the exploitation.”
(So no more William Hungs, I guess. I understand, of course, but it still makes me kind of sad. But not all the fun auditions are mean-spirited. Who knows, maybe this season we’ll meet the new “Pants on the Ground” guy.)
