Her plastic surgery may not be breaking news, but Wendy Williams is getting some serious press (and heat) for her recent comments about plastic surgery. Wendy, a prominent African-American talk show host, recently discussed her own surgery choices with others.
She has been criticized for making drastic changes to her face and body with plastic surgery including significant breast implants (which she loves dearly), and Wendy is not the type to shy away from confrontation if it means sharing her personal opinion on the black community.
This time she was looking right at other black women when she told a popular women’s website, “[Black women] are jealous. Because if I said to that person, ‘I got the doctor and I’m going to pay for it. Choose three things you want to do,’ believe me, they would get it done. They are very jealous and scared. Scared of what their other friends would say, or to break out of the box and be different. And being Black? Ugh, please. My people will not go for any kind of surgery. We are supposed to be natural. Ugh, whatever.”
Her strongly worded comments have been praised by many as Wendy Williams is certainly not the only black female celebrity to see cosmetic surgery, but the comments are also being met with resistance.
This is not news for Wendy, however, as her breast implants are well-known additions. Wendy is honest about her surgery and her appreciation for her newly improved contours. She is so honest she even admits to learning to sleep on her back so that she doesn’t wake up one day with “a deflated breast” that will need replacing and repair.
Wendy may be causing a stir with her comments about plastic surgery, but from where we’re sitting it all sounds reasonable. There is certainly a lot of good that can come from plastic surgery – and Wendy’s open attitude showcases that beautifully.
