Wendy Williams

TRASHES Beyonce:

'[She] Can't Talk'

Wendy Williams
managed to call herself a Beyonce fan in one sentence ... and then essentially call her an idiot just seconds later ... saying the diva "sounds like she has a fifth grade education."

On an episode of her show this week, Williams said she was looking forward to watching Beyonce's documentary, but said she needed to watch it with the closed captioning on because "You know Beyonce can’t talk."

The audience booed and Williams tried to backtrack ... but the damage was done.

Good luck getting Nets tickets.

i never really liked wendy williams.. but she just scored major points with me for calling out this media-created 'royalty status' that jay and beyonce seem to think they deserve.

maybe Beyonce can't talk to well, but I think Wendy Williams has a BIG MOUTH, & should have kept her mouth shut. First she says she's a fan, then she slaps her down. Give me a break. Ms. Williams probably didn't even finish High School. ewww

She said she was a huge fan first, and we all know that's true. What she said about Beyonce's ability to speak isn't incorrect. From what I've seen other interviews, you either get the shy, awkward Beyonce or you get the comfortable, somewhat ghetto Beyonce. In either case, she IS difficult to understand. A fact is a fact. Wendy did no harm, she was just being real about it.

Wendy is right. Beyonce had more than enough money to educate herself but she chose to buy blonde weaves and jewelry.
Beyonce speaks very poorly and it's a fact. The do***entary is going to put Beyonce's career right in the toilet. No one respects a woman who chooses bling over brains.

And this is why black people will always be a complete mess. Wendy is going to cut down Beyonce, a girl who is talented, works hard and has travelled the world !!!! How about attacking the real uneducated blacks that live in every city and live off the government for their welfare, housing and food stamps.

I'm glad a black person said this about Beyonce and not a white one, otherwise Wendy would have been called a racist for simply telling the truth. Beyonce has very little education and unless she is talking about music she is pretty dumb and not very well read or interesting. She very overrated

Her husband Jay Z speaks even worse than Beyonce. I saw him on stage introducing Obama and I couldn't understand him? They both have enough money to hire a speech therapist and learn how to speak like adults. Thanks Wendy Williams! It's time for Beyonce to drop that ghetto jive she talks
