Wendy Williams is once again telling her mind without caring about the controversies she creates. The TV star claimed Kathie Lee Gifford needs to find another co-host for Today’s fourth hour.
From Wendy’s point of view, it is ‘beneath’ Hoda Kotb to still have that job after replacing the disgraced Matt Lauer.
During her Hot Topics segment, Williams threw shade at Kathie Lee, telling her audience that the woman should let go of Hoda now that she has a much better gig.
‘How much longer do you believe Hoda is going to stick around and drink wine on that 4th hour? It’s beneath her to be there now. Let Kathie Lee find some other socialite to sit with. Hoda, you are in the newsroom now,’ Wendy stated.
As you may already be aware, at this point in time, Hoda co-hosts the first two hours of the Today show alongside Savannah Guthrie.
But that doesn’t mean she’s just left Kathie Lee by herself as she still joins her later for the fourth hour.
‘This has to be the most popular decision that NBC News has ever made,’ Guthrie admitted when the announcement that Hoda would join her was made.
Meanwhile, Matt Lauer released an official statement following his shameful firing saying that: ‘There’s no words to express my regret for the pain I’ve caused others by words and actions. To the people I’ve hurt, I’m truly sorry. As I’m writing this, I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I’ve left behind at home and at NBC.’
Still, it seems like ever since Hoda Kotb took over his seat, no one even remembers who he is!
Do you agree with Wendy Williams or did she go too far?
