(audience cheering) (audience chanting) Thank you for watching! Say hello to my co-hosts, my studio audience. (audience cheering) How you doin’? How you doin’? OK today, let’s get started. It’s time for? Hot Topics! Yes! (upbeat music)
(audience cheering) So, I hope you all enjoyed your holiday weekend. Welcome back to reality, where we all have to go back to work. Some people playing on their computers with Cyber Monday. You shopping? Yeah, yes! OK, that’s you. (audience chuckles) I had a nice weekend. You know, actually, I got a lot accomplished. I went out, I came in, went back out, came back in. Good food. Peaceful. (audience clapping)
Peaceful. Yeah. So happy birthday to Rita Ora, she’s 28. (audience cheering) Mm-hmm. And what a nice birthday gift. She was slammed for lip synching at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. (audience gasps) First of all, that coat is everything. (audience agrees) Where do we get that? (audience laughs) All right, you all know that it was the coldest Thanksgiving Day Parade since 1903. So, she’s warm, and she’s singing, she performed Love Me Like You Do, and she says that the song began late, and she was trying to catch up with the song, so the cameras thought that she was doing such a bad job with the song, that they kept cutting away from her. People were mad ’cause she was lip synching. Well, who doesn’t lipsynch? (audience laughs) It’s freezing, you’re trying to balance on a balloon. (laughing) Catch your breath. I thought people already knew that people lip sank, all the time, but particularly when you’re on a float. People are screaming below, you can’t hear yourself much less, you know. So, John Legend came to her defense, he said that everybody lip synchs on floats, because they aren’t built to handle the sound requirements for a live performance. Well that makes perfect sense. And you know, when John says it, it makes sense. (audience laughs) I, look, I’m not blaming Rita Ora. I blame the people of this generation, who love Rita Ora, who are just, or who just wanna pick and pull at celebrity culture, because for instance, Diana Ross lip sank her whole performance. She didn’t even fake it, she put the microphone down, (audience laughing) I mean, now she was in the parade, up on a balloon, with her whole family, everyone looking beautiful. I was worried for her neck though, you know. It was so cold, I was surprised she didn’t have like, um, you know, some sort of something around her neck. Anyway, but she’s adored by people of a particular generation, people like me, or maybe you, who we’re not going online saying, “Why is she lip synching?” We’re busy trying to figure out, “Now who’s gonna clean up this mess left from Thanksgiving?” (audience laughing) We’re busy, we’re busy. Two lip synchers, two different generations, you see how that works. Yeah. Yeah. Well, um, (laughing) hmm, hmm, hmm. Oh, yes. (audience laughing) Oh, yes. I told you recently, that Future is expecting his fifth baby with his fifth baby’s mother. Right? (audience laughing) Remember I told you, number one, might be a lady of the evening, (audience laughing) so she doesn’t wanna be seen. That’s not her, you’re mixing her up with Diddy Bop, was allegedly with a woman of the evening. OK, why can’t we see Jessica? She wants no parts of it. Jessica, India, Brittany, and Ciara, and Joie, and somehow, isn’t this the one with hood triplets? (laughs) No, that’s Diddy Bop again. (laughing) Point being, Future is expecting his sixth child. (audience gasps) And, the woman claims, well this is what the woman’s claiming, uh, is this her down here? Yes.
Uh-huh. Eliza. I mean, you know what, I guess because of his demeanor, I just think of him as being like 27 or 28 or something, Future is 35, still playin’ these reindeer games. (audience clapping) Why you clappin’ at that? Why would you clap at that? That’s nothing to clap at. (audience laughs) That’s disgusting. I mean, with all the condoms out here, but no condoms anywhere. (audience laughs) Well, the alleged mother’s name is allegedly Eliza Reign, and there she is, she’s an Instagram model, aren’t they all. (audience laughs) She, that’s her, too. She runs an internet clothing boutique. Her boutique is called Haitian Goddess. She says they been hookin’ up for two years, and somehow she wound up pregnant. Now, now, I’m not gonna say I know everything, but I predicted this recently, take a look. Do you know what Joie, if you know that he did Ciara dirty, (audience agrees) with that little Future, what would make you think, that you have a chance? He probably already has his sixth baby’s mother pregnant already. (audience clapping) I don’t know why I have the pointer. (audience laughs) It’s very comforting though. There’s more to the story, OK. So, Eliza claims that Future wanted her to have an abortion, and so when she allegedly refused, Future allegedly, well put a bounty out on her life, allegedly. (audience gasps) Yeah. Well, allegedly, this woman, Eliza, is something in her 30s, and her doctor told her, you know, when she got to the doctor’s, abortion’s not a good idea, you know, you’re crawling on the other side of, you know, 30, and you might not be able to have kids properly if you do this. So when she told him, that’s when I guess Future got furious. So, Future posted a video yesterday, seemingly claiming nothing. Take a look. It’s a evil world we live in. But hey, I’ma keep livin’ and lovin’ life. Love my fans the most. Ya know I’m sayin’, so, hey, it’s gonna happen, when these racks blue, (beep) do whatever for that (beep). (audience groaning and laughing) Embarrassing. That is embarrassing. And remind you, he’s 35. 35. Six kids on the way, mm-hmm. Mm-hmm. Ciara, you win. You win.
(audience clapping) You win. You win. So the Real Housewives of The OC reunion was on last night, did you watch? Yeah. I watched. Vicki was hoping to get engaged to her boyfriend Steve. Steve still doesn’t wanna get married, but she’s also still very involved in getting back at her ex, Brooks. ‘Member when Vicki was with Brooks. All right, just take a look. I’m going after him. Really? For what? Money he owes me. Fraud, misrepresentation? How much does he owe you? A lot. Does he even have any money to go after him? Oh, I have an Excel spreadsheet on him. Maybe you should just close that door, close that,
Well you know what I know you have. He’s still,
Really? Gonna be on your brain.
No it’s not. I don’t relive the emotion. I want my money back. She wants her money back. I know, but you’re not gonna get it. You’re gonna spend so much money to get it back. No, no, no, no, I know what I’m doing.
OK. The man lied to me, and he’s not gonna get away with it. I’m team Vicki, and here’s why. Sometimes you say, well let something go, so that you can move on to your next relationship, or move on with your life, but in the case of Brooks, she’s got an Excel spreadsheet. (audience laughing) Vicki Gunvalson is no dope. She’s friend in my head, I tell you. She’s no dope, and if she’s on to it, there’s got to be a good reason. Like, was this man stealing from her bank accounts? Or was she giving him money? Because if she’s giving you, if you were giving him money Vicki, then you can’t get that back, but if you can prove that he’s been stealing from you, or buying things behind your back, or doing things, you know, go after him. And as far as Steve, I get that you wanna get married, but you know what, who’s moving on with Steve? Steve doesn’t even wanna get married, which means that Vicki ultimately is a single woman, who’s got to take care of herself. For the rest of her life. Steve’s money doesn’t count. No, Steve doesn’t even really count. (audience laughs) His opinion in this, you know, he’s on the show, he likes to shine. (audience laughs) I have to tell you. Last night, I turned on that Turner network, and was watching Some Like It Hot, starring Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon. Oh, it was fabulous. All black and white, the men are running around in dresses, seemingly very comfortable, (audience laughs)
I might add. They’re dodging bullets, they’re hiding under tables, they’re running in heels, up steps. When I tell you the comfort level of them in those dresses, (audience laughs) it’s embarrassing. Anyway, it was very long, but I got stuck, so I was going back and forth watching that. All right, have you heard about this Black Chyna skin bleaching thing? (audience gasps) OK, well, she is apparently the new face of a new skin bleaching cream. The cream costs, there’s the ad, the cream costs $250. Now this is a little tiny container, so you got to figure, if you have to slather every day, (audience laughs) at least twice a day, to wash your brown away, if that’s what you, if that’s what you wanna do, and you gotta get all between the cracks and the crevices, and then you have to,
(audience laughing) I’m just saying, and then depending on where you’re moisturizing, you’ve got to spread to let everything set in. (audience laughing) I mean, you really do. Well, apparently it’s big over in Nigeria. According to the stats from the Hot Topics bureau, they say 71% of Nigerian women bleach their cream. (audience gasps) Or bleach their skin. Excuse me, 77%, bleach their skin. Well, it’s becoming very, very big over here now, too. I don’t remember Black Chyna, I remember Black Chyna being a little bit darker actually, in this picture right here. But, nevertheless, what else is she gonna do? I mean, what else is she going to do? I don’t see anything wrong with what she’s doing, only because we already know what she is. You know, she’s a, she’s scraping, scraping for money and stuff. Well don’t forget your elbows and your knees. (audience laughing and clapping) And here’s where it always comes back to me. “Wendy, you been bleaching for a long time, so we know you know.” Cracks me up when people say that. It’s so silly. (laughs) All right, so, you know, I’m involved with my project, Backseat Heat, which I love. (audience clapping) And so, a new episode is ready for you. It features New Orleans music star, Big Frieda. (audience cheering) You know, she’s worked with a lot of people, like Beyonce and Drake, and also she’s a big voice for the LGBTQ community. Take a look. Wow, you seem like a really good spirit. I am. Very comfortable with yourself. I am. When did you come out? I came out about 12 years old, to my mom, and one day I had a birthday party, and I was like, all of my friends there, so I’m gonna tell my mom today, that this is who I am, and when I told her she said, “Momma already know, baby.” OK.
(audience laughing) She already knew. And that was my backbone baby, she was my protector, she carried me, she taught me class, and to be who I am, and not be afraid. She was my rock. Sounds like if it wasn’t for your mother having the spirit that she had, that there would be no Big Frieda. Definitely. (audience clapping) So you can go to wendyshow.com to see the full episode. We got some episodes already posted, so if you haven’t caught up, just go to wendyshow.com, there are a few episodes already there, but Frieda is the new one. Hi, Freida! (audience clapping) Have you ever watched this new show, or, not new show, but the show Storage Wars? Yeah, where people bid on unclaimed storage units, and the winner gets to keep what’s inside. Well, have you heard about the story about the cash? Yes. Someone won a storage unit, and there was $7.5 million in cash, in a duffle bag in there. $7.5 million. Wow! I mean, so, after the money was discovered, the original owner of the unit, contacted the winner, and demanded to have the money back. (audience stirs) Talkin’ about, I forgot that I owned the unit. (audience gasps and laughs) Get out of my face, click! (audience laughing) Click, click! Click. Then, so then, so you forgot about $7.5 million in a moldy storage unit, and in a duffle bag, and 7.5, so they offered the purchaser of the unit, $600,000 to get the money back. Well, the winner declined. (audience stirs) All right, good. But, then the offer went up to $1.2 million, and the buyer accepted. (audience gasps) I would have kept it all. I wouldn’t answer the phone. (audience clapping)
I’d be like, how’d you get my number? I would have immediately bought one of those pens that tests whether it’s real money or fake money. (audience laughing)
You know, buy a pen, I’d be up all night, money spread every place. Real, real, real, real, real, real. I don’t like storage units though. Do you? No. They always just, seems like, a seedy place where people hide stuff. You know, like you could have your baby’s crib in there, and you know some stuff from grandma, and then right next door to you, $7.5 million and bunch of guns. (audience laughs) Plus, they create mold, there’s mold all over the storage units, the people who are in charge of them usually are, I don’t know, I don’t like a storage, I would like to do something else with my stuff than put it in a storage unit. But, you know what, clap if you would have given the money back. (sparse audience clapping) Bless your heart. (audience laughs) So on to other crime. (laughing) Toni Braxton’s engagement ring was stolen. (audience gasps) Mm-hmm. OK, her Louis Vuitton luggage was lost on a recent flight. Now, as I can recall when she came on our show, she said that this is a half million dollar ring. (audience gasps) Yeah. Gorgeous. So, when she finally got her luggage back, most all of her jewelry was gone, including the ring. Look at the criminals be picky. Like, I don’t want this, I’m putting this back. (audience laughs)
I’ll take this. Toni, why wasn’t the ring on your finger? (audience clapping) Also, Toni, come back down to earth darling. You should not be checking designer luggage when you’re flying commercial. (audience clapping) At all, at all. At all. I’m sure she wasn’t flying by herself. I have no idea who was in charge of you know, getting her through and whatnot, but from the moment you see her packing a Louis Vuitton bag, you say, “No Toni, no we’re flying first class, but it’s still the plane with everybody else in it. You know, it’s still gonna go through a scan.” I mean, the people at the airport, what are you serious, that’s the first thing they’re gonna grab, Louis Vuitton luggage, what stupid celebrity is this? (audience laughs) Toni is begging for whoever took the ring to return, no questions. No one’s returning that ring. No one’s returning the jewelry. I’m surprised they returned the luggage. Oh Toni, what are we gonna do with you? Always up to something. (audience laughs) Hmm. You know what, we’ve got more great show! (audience cheering) Coming up on the Inside Scoop, rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine’s legal trouble, so grab a snack and come on back. (upbeat music)
