We probably don’t need to tell you that Wendy Williams has had a rough couple of years.

Her downward spiral began in 2017 with news that Williams’ husband had been caught cheating.

Whether that revelation prompted the sharp deterioration in her mental health or merely exposed it is a matter that’s still up for debate. 

Whatever the case, we’ve learned a whole lot about the sad state of Wendy’s personal life in the past 12 months.

Most recently, Williams checked into rehab after admitting to substance abuse issues.

Obviously, recovery is an immensely difficult process for anyone, and we wish her all the best on the road ahead.

The problem, of course, is that it’s difficult to be entirely sympathetic to someone who’s made a career out of trashing people who are already at the most vulnerable points of their lives.

These days, Williams tapes her show each day and returns to a sober living house each night.

We applaud her for taking her recovery so seriously — but as a result of her difficult circumstances, Williams’ ruthless jabs at her fellow celebs strike even more of a sour note than usual.

And we suppose it was only a matter of time before one of them decided to return the favor and take a cheap shot at the longtime queen of mean.

On her Wednesday broadcast, Wendy referred to Iggy Azalea as “the Australian with the fake body."

Needless to say, this didn’t sit well with Iggy.

Of course, as a result of her mammoth backside implants, the rapper’s probably not accustomed to sitting well. Zing!

As you can see, Iggy retweeted a fan who talked trash about Wendy and that added some commentary of her own:

A fan captioned the clip, “Your breath stink from talking s–t, you want a mint?”

“Who’s the crack head in the half way house with the gossip show thing?” Iggy tweeted.

That’s harsh. Of course, Wendy is always harsh, so we’re not really sure who to side with here.

This isn’t the first time that Wendy has taken a cheap shot at Iggy, which may explain why folks on Twitter were quick to side with Azalea — or at least against Williams:

“Sis over here looking like an improper fraction and she wanna come for Iggy sis sit down,” read one tweet.

“Bruh has she seen herself. She better start considering a fake body lol," another fan remarked.

Wendy did have some supporters, of course — but their shade was nearly as potent:

“Weak clap back plus Wendy didn’t mean any harm,” tweeted one user.

Another made a very salient point, writing, “You’re rightfully upset, but it’s never cool to bring up someone’s addiction to weaponize them.”

As the folks at In Touch point out, this is just one of several random-ass feuds Iggy has found herself embroiled in recently.

The previous spat was with none other than Peppa Pig, who had the misfortune of releasing an album on the same day as Iggy’s.


That news is shocking for a number of reasons, as not only did Iggy butt heads with a cubist cartoon character, it seems she also released an album this year. Who knew?

“Collab with me now or you’ll end up a breakfast special, Peppa," Iggy ominously tweeted.

That’s a first-rate bacon burn if ever we’ve heard one.

Maybe Iggy should stick to beefing with animated pork,
