Wendy Williams defends the Kardashians after LisaRaye McCoy blames them for unrealistic beauty standards
The TV host blamed plastic surgeons, who she said were upping their game with every passing year
Wendy Williams has supported the Kardashian family after actress LisaRaye McCoy blamed them for negatively influencing beauty standards for women. The 55-year-old host instead blamed plastic surgeons for creating fake beauty standards.
“There are women who are born with a natural heart booty, and pendulous breasts and you know, they keep it together. But, what’s happening is, it’s not the Kardashians Lisa. — It’s the surgeons,” Williams said.
Continuing further, Wendy said on Thursday, April 23: “The surgeons are upping their game. Twenty years ago we didn't know what a booty implant was. Ten years ago we didn't know what fat transfer was. Five years ago we didn't know what a vampire blood facial was. These are the doctors...getting really smart, and people like families that can afford it getting it done and getting the full process."
But Williams also understood McCoy’s point as she said, “She's [Lisa] a natural. In the faketry of everything going on out here, there are some women born with a natural heart beauty and good, pendulous breasts. So I don't blame Lisa Raye McCoy one bit. I'd be pissed too."
‘The Wendy Williams Show’ host noted that she was also not with the "perfect" body and she still doesn't have one now. “But I etched stuff out. Thank god for technology…” she added.
William’s comments came after McCoy appeared on FOX Soul Live’s April 20 episode of ‘Out Loud with Claudia Jordan’ where she accused the Kardashians of setting unrealistic beauty standards.
“The Kardashian’s have single-handedly changed the woman’s body shape that is acceptable right now. Now it’s a small waist, and all this a**, which look like the ankles can’t even hold up all of that.
“I don’t even want my body to look like that because that’s the body everybody has right now,” the ‘Single Ladies’ actress said on the show, which was also joined by Syleena Johnson and Vivica A. Fox.
She added: “Every generation after that feels like that’s what they have to do to secure the bag.” Jordan chimed in and said that “everyone looks the same” because they “all are going to the same doctor.”
However, it is not as if Williams likes the Kardashians, because earlier in January, she herself slammed Kim Kardashian as she called her fake and said she definitively had plastic surgery. During her Hot Topics segment, the ‘Think Like A Man’ star said: “Speaking of faketry, oh come one you know Kim is not natural. If I'm telling you I'm not natural, give me a break. But you have to do it tastefully, like me and Kim, allegedly."
Williams also recently made her appearance on the Dr Oz show talking about elective surgeries being put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “I was just playing with you. It's just that, as a surgery girl when you save your money and you've been planning for years,” she said jokingly as she continued, “And then you have your appointment and all of a sudden the corona pops up, and I got to deal with these saggy boobs. For how much longer before I get them pulled back up?”
To which Dr Oz responded, “We're talking about probably a couple of months. I am hopeful that we're eight weeks away from being through the worst of this.”
