Wendy Williams to T.I.: ‘I could buy an ass like your wife did’

Wendy Williams clapped back at T.I. after he posted viral pictures of her while on vacation in Barbados.

On Thursday, Wendy Williams clapped back at T.I.

Recently, the talk show host was on vacation in Barbados, where she was photographed wearing a black bikini and subsequently ridiculed online for her looks and lack of a behind.

Among those detractors was rapper T.I., who didn’t specifically join in the ridiculing but did say that he hoped all of the negative comments Williams was facing would help “her heart to not be so malicious & vindictive in the future.”

–T.I. hopes Wendy Williams’ bikini bod shame will make her less ‘vindictive’–

“I was just in Barbados with my husband on vacation,” Williams recalled to The New York Daily News. “The paparazzi caught me. T.I. referenced my lack of behind.”

“I wanted to say ‘I could buy one like your wife and so many people have done,’” Williams said, referring to Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris‘ open admissions to using plastic surgery to enhance her own looks. “I could buy one any day. It’s flat.”

But even for as much shade as Williams throws on her show, she insisted that who she is as a person is far and away different from that image of herself.

“I’m not as shady as people think that I would be in real life,” she said. “I do this for work. I did the scene of pop culture. When it comes to being a good friend and holding a secret, you’re looking at her, believe it or not.”
