Mariah Carey responds to Lee Daniels and Wendy Williams after they called her “too fragile” for reality TV. Find out how she clapped back, plus, peep cute coupledom flicks of Tina Lawson and her husband Richard Lawson inside….
We all know Mariah Carey is the queen when it comes to throwing shade. And she can serve up a clap back if need be.
Well, Mimi, above leaving Nobu with friends in L.A. yesterday, has a few words (and karate kicks) for good friend Lee Daniels and daytime talk show host Wendy Williams.
Here’s how it started….
A few days ago, Lee sat down with radio/TV personality Bevy Smith for her “Bevelations” radio show on SiriusXM. During the interview, the “Empire” co-creator revealed he wasn’t happy how Mariah seemingly tricked him to be featured on her upcoming E! docu-series. He said they met at a restaurant on Wall Street when she rolled up with cameras tagging along. He said she told him about the documentary and pulled out a disclosure/release form for him to sign. At the time, he didn’t know it was for a “reality show,” but he soon learned his friend would be joining the “reality TV” realm and he wasn’t happy about it.
“I don’t know if it’s a wise idea for her,” said Lee. “I was at the gym when I saw it and was like, ‘Oh Lord, what is she doing?’ I think it’s bigger than her. I think it’s not a good idea. I think the true geniuses have to be saved from themselves sometimes.”
Lee then proceeded to label her as “too fragile” to do reality TV saying:
“She is very fragile and she has been through a lot. She has been used, she has been abused. She is misunderstood because she is really, really ride or die. She really will do anything for you.”
Following suit, Wendy Williams addressed what Lee said on her show during her Hot Topics segment where she agreed with Lee. Here’s what she said (at the 7:20 mark):
The Elusive Chanteuse singer got wind of their comments and decided to respond to Lee and Wendy in a few Instagram posts. She linked up with Lee and recorded a few clips where Lee says “I’m the b*tch that’s fragile okay?” followed by her playfully kicking him. She captioned, “He’s the b*tch that’s fragile! Don’t come for us unless we call for you @wendyshow”
He’s the bitch that’s fragile! Don’t come for us unless we call for you @wendyshow MY DOCU SERIES COMING TO @enews @eentertainment soon #kittenandcotton @theoriginalbigdaddy @stellabulochnikov @nicoleperna
