'Dancing With The Stars' season 28: Fans tell Wendy Williams to stop being mean after she accuses Christie Brinkley of faking injury
Even though everyone sent their love to Christie hoping she will recover soon, there was one person who wasn't convinced that the injury was real.
'Dancing With The Stars' season 28 premiered around a week ago, and viewers were left shocked after it was revealed that former model Christie Brinkley broke her arm during rehearsal and will not be competing this season.
Though Christie hurt her arm and was unable to participate anymore, her daughter Sailor Brinkley stepped into her mother's shoes and with just hours of rehearsal and stunned everyone with a breathtaking foxtrot routine along with her pro partner Valentin Chmerkovskiy. Even though everyone sent their love to Christie hoping she recovers soon, there was one person who wasn't convinced that the injury was real and that she was faking it. It was none other than famed talk show host, Wendy Williams.
When the series premiered on Monday night last week and it was revealed that Christie will not be returning because of her injured arm and that her daughter will be taking over instead of her, Williams said that her friend's fall looked "fake as hell". She also added that Christie plotted this to giver her daughter the chance to one-up her career. "In my opinion, I think what Christie did was she signed up for 'Dancing With the Stars’ knowing that she’d put her daughter Sailor in there," Williams said. And recently Christie decided to address those rumors but showing her x-ray results and badly bruised arm.
"My message to Wendy is: It’s so much more fun to be kind. Try it. It can't feel good to try to hurt other people. If it feels good, something's seriously wrong," Christie said on The Talk. Though a few fans were skeptical about Christie's sudden accident, most fans stood up for her against Williams stating that that's not how one treats their so-called "personal friend".
"I can't believe that @WendyWilliams would think that @SeaBrinkley (Christie Brinkley) would fake her injury on #DWTS!! She was always there for you & this is how you treat your friend! Terrible!!," wrote a fan on Twitter. Adding to that another fan said, "Hey @WendyWilliams ya hag. Just because Christie is popular and was invited on a show, dont get all Mean Girls on her when ya dont have the receipts! #DWTS #WendyWilliams."
"@WendyWilliams when you do your “hot topics” maybe you should get you facts straight. I listen 2U get facts wrong all of the time, especially abt @DancingABC ... someone that gave u a job & you talk terribly about. U also owe Christie a better apology than what u gave. #dwts," said a fan. While another added, "Just simply beautiful watching Christie Brinkley on The Talk today. Can't believe @wendywilliams would suggest she faked her fall, especially after being Wendy herself was on #DwtS would know how hard and easy it is to fall! @seabrinkley keep on sharing that kindness."
Now that Sailor is in place of her mom, we can't wait to see how far she makes it through in the competition, and if she has what it takes to win the mirrorball this season.
