(audience cheers) How you doin’? How you doin’? I’m doin’ okay, it’s time for. Hot Topics! Come on. (audience cheers)
(rhythmic music) So–
(audience cheers) Today–
(audience cheers) Today is our–
(audience cheers) Thank you, thank you. Today is National Love Your Pet Day. (audience cheers) I forgot until I got here. There they are standing outside the shower. They like to lay on the bathmat and watch me brush my teeth and get ready to come to you. Chit Chat and My Way. I guess I’ll get ’em some shrimp and scallops or something later, you know? So there’s a show coming back to TV and I think it’s a perfect time. Making of the Band. (audience cheers) Okay, it’s called “Making the Band”. Anyway, this is the show where Puffy had the girl or man go get him some cheesecake at like, four o’clock in the morning. (audience laughs)
Epic, epic. Anyway, this time around, the judges are gonna be Puffy’s three sons. I think this is terrific. And if you, yeah.
(audience applauds) The boys are old enough, they know the music, and their father, of course, will be right there. I’m sure Puffy’s probably gonna make appearances. Laurieann Gibson’s also gonna be one of the judges. But if you listen to the sons. Yeah, there’s Laurieann, I love her. (audience applauds) Listen to Puffy’s three sons as they talk. They all sound just like him, in tone and voice depth and cadence. It’s odd too, because even Al B. Sure!’s son, who’s now Puffy’s son, has that inflection. Take a look. We had to be involved in the return of “Making the Band”. I’m shutting down the studio. We not settling for just anybody. You feel like you got what it takes to compete. ♪ Oh no, we’ve got ♪ In today’s industry. Y’all know how our pops does. You sold 500,000 records. That’s not hot. You can’t really make oatmeal or tea with that. Fish grease! Now that’s hot. Me personally, I’m looking or a hungry artist. I want me a piece of cheesecake. “Making the Band” is back. Bet.
We back, we back, we back. (audience cheers) You know? It’s time. There were a few stars that came out of “Making the Band” when it came on in the past. Puff has that magic touch. There are a whole lot of shows now that are trying to make some sort of singer, band, dancer, whatever. But you know what? This I’m interested in. So congratulations. “Making the Band”. There’s no date or anything like that. They just say it’s gonna premier later this year, yeah. (audience applauds) So, the word on the curb is Tamar and her Nigerian boyfriend, David, have broken up. (audience exclaims) Well, I tried to call Tamar, get in touch with her, there was no call back, still nothing. It’s been like, 48 hours, but here we go. Tamar tweeted, “If they don’t want you, “there is no talking, no reasoning. “Let it go and let God bring the one “who will be all that you need to accept all of you.” Well, I guess, oh, and she deleted all of his pictures, which, you know, this is really sad, you guys. ‘Cause I remember, it was just like, two months ago when I showed you the picture of Tamar in Nigeria for the first time going over to meet David’s family. Yup, and she brought her son. See, this is where, when you drag kids into stuff, and they don’t need to be dragged in. Now Logan’s probably looking around like, where’s Mr. David? (audience laughs) Look, as recent as Valentine’s Day, David posted valentines gushing about Tamar. There they are, that’s Valentine’s Day. (audience exclaims) But you know how sometimes you need that last fight to say this is over? That fight might’ve happened the day after, I don’t know. I’m not exactly sure. I feel like David, he’s a. First of all, Logan’s only six. (sighs) Even though they had been together for like, two years on the D.L., right? Yup.
On the D.L. So that’s good, so Logan’s already met the man and everything, but then he goes to Nigeria and they put on the stuff and it seems reasonable. David is a millionaire in his own right. He graduated from Harvard Business School. He’s got his own money, he doesn’t need anything that Tamar has except love and a relationship, companionship. Tamar is her own working woman, although, because she’s the youngest in the family, I’m not the youngest, but you know how sometimes those youngest can be? (audience laughs) Spoiled, argumentative, wanting everything their way, slamming doors, and doing stuff, sometimes, Tamar, that a lot of people who aren’t the youngest just don’t understand. And she’s the youngest of six, so she was sperled, not even spoiled. (audience laughs)
She’s sperled. And then David– (audience applauds)
Hold on. And I’m just a regular girl who went to a regular school. I graduated from Northeastern. But you know the kinda brain skills it takes to get into Harvard and Yale and these Ivy League schools? And I’ve dated some of these guys, and they’re not exactly socially connected, sometimes, sometimes. They’re book-smart, they know how to make the money, they know how to open the door for you, but when it comes to socialize, maybe he’s just not able. I mean, everything looks good on paper, but when you’re actually trapped in a relationship with them. (audience laughs) There’s no amount of Harvard that sometimes. And then, according to theJasmineBRAND, “Braxton Family Values” might not be coming back. (audience exclaims) Well, they’re saying the ratings have declined. The sisters don’t like what the network is offering financially, allegedly, this is what’s being said. Tamar is all but out. She said it, like, I don’t want any parts of this. The show has been on for a long time, it’s had a really good run. Is that show still on now? Is it on now? Not right now, they’re between seasons. Between seasons.
Or maybe we’ve already seen the series finale, we don’t know. Okay. (audience laughs) Well I love the family, I’m just filling you all in. (audience applauds) So Kylie Jenner is being mommy-shamed again. (audience exclaims) This time because she posted her adorable two-year-old daughter, Stormi, wearing large hoops. With her name in ’em. Remember we all had them back in the ’90s and ’80s? (audience exclaims)
Okay? (audience laughs) One of you all sent me a pair, I still actually do have ’em. (audience laughs) All right, here’s the deal. Instagram followers were slamming Kylie, saying all fun and games ’til she rips her earlobes out. This is the problem of kids having kids. Well, you know, there are a lot of problems with kids having kids, but I don’t believe that this right here is one of ’em. First of all– (audience applauds) My opinion is, and I don’t know this for fact, that Kylie probably put these earrings in her ears for a staged photo shoot to put on Instagram, immediately took the earrings out. Do we have the footage of her asking for the earrings back? Yeah. Well, I guessed it, and you know I did, before I even knew that there was footage. And the little girl says no and smushes her face up at her mom. But you know. No mom’s letting their kid sleep like that. We don’t even sleep like that as adults. Are you serious? You take off your earrings before you take, well, when you wear hoops. I sleep in my earrings. But you take off your earrings before you take off your makeup when you come in with big earrings. Good job, camera. Zoom right in on her, yup, got her. (audience applauds) Here’s Kylie and Stormi talking about the earrings, go ahead. Can I take those earrings off please? No. (audience exclaims and laughs) Okay? Look at her looking at herself and all that stuff. Okay. So the whole world now is talking about Pop Smoke being murdered yesterday. I didn’t find out about this until after I got off the show, because it was like, five o’clock in the morning, LA time, which is eight o’clock in the morning here. But by the time, I guess, the police reported it and everything was sorted out, we’re already on here laughing and yucking about everything else. And I had no idea that he was murdered until after I got off. Well, he was only 20 years old. From Brooklyn here in New York. His mix tape debuted at number seven on the Billboard, and that’s what he was celebrating that particular night. “Welcome to the Party” is a popular song. Then, there’s a song that, why am I always involved in something? There’s a song that he had out that people really liked, it’s called “Like Me”. And in the song, there was no time to get the clearances and stuff like that, I’ll just tell you what it said basically. He says, “I’ma call you every day at 12 o’clock, “‘How you doin’, like Wendy”. (audience exclaims)
Uh-huh. (audience applauds) And, you know, the big talk is that the robbery was reported and hours before the robbery, the posting of all his trappings on Instagram. Gifts, and, look, his address, we blurred it out as well. Everyone should’ve, he should’ve, or his people should’ve, or something like that, blurred out the address where we was staying. And then he was in the car and his friend had a big stack, look at that stack of dough. Look at that stack of dough over there. And he’s only 20. And cops now think it was a targeted hit. The surveillance video is showing four masked men leaving Post’s mansion with nothing. Like, they didn’t steal anything, they just left. Masked men, they’re still on the loose. Post has, I mean, I’m sorry. Pop. Pop has passed away. And this is just sad all around. And I guess the cautionary tale here is bon vivant, live and let live, within reasonable. I love to say that to you, bon vivant, live and let live. But also, watch what you post. (audience applauds) The home, incidentally, was co-owned by Teddi Mellencamp. How is a housewife involved with everything? (audience laughs) She was the co-owner of the home. He was renting it out there. He’s busy, he’s from Brooklyn, but he’s busy. He’s a rockstar at 20 years old. Then a lot of celebrities went on Instagram and gave their well-wishes to him in the crossroads, and this is just a sad story. I’m so tired of talking about death here on Hot Topics. And I just, thoughts and prayers to his family, his friends, the cops for catching the bad guys, and the whole bit. (audience applauds) All right, to bring it up a bit. I got some fantastic news yesterday. (audience exclaims) I’m minding my own business, next thing you know, I get information regarding the Guns N’ Roses concert. (audience cheers) No, no, no, no, no, no. No, no, no, this is very important, this is very important. The first one that I called, ’cause he’s supposed to be part of my posse going out there is Brendan. But the first one that identified themselves here, as soon I said, look, I hear Guns N’ Roses are coming in July, I wanna go. These people didn’t know that I like Guns N’ Roses, but you know, I like all kinda music. It was Rambo over there on the camera. (audience applauds)
Rambo! So my plans, as you know, we’re gonna fill a Sprinter full of food, it was gonna be my dirty dozen, including you, Brendan, Suzanne, like a dirty dozen. In the middle of July, we’re gonna wear panty shorts and– (audience laughs) You better dress the part. Oh my God, I don’t have panty shorts. Well, make some. Okay.
All right. All right.
Look, look. And we girls, ’cause there’s gonna be six girls and six guys. And look, we’re the dirty dozen. I’m getting a Sprinter, I’m getting a box seat, and I’m feeling like we’re set. And we’re all so excited about it. You know, a cheese platter, a little meat platter.
I have a T-shirt too. (audience laughs) Brendan will get you a T-shirt. I’m gonna cut my T-shirt all the way down to the bone.
Oh! (audience cheers) Me too!
I’ma tie it all the way up. Me too!
Yes! Yes! (audience applauds) Guns N’ Roses came out in the ’80s. At that particular point, I’d already graduated from high school, but I was a freshman in college and still loved all kind of music. So look, the call that I got. Did Brendan tell you, Rambo? He said there was good news. It’s very good news. Duff, who plays bass, and his wife, Susan, watch the Wendy Show. (audience cheers) And so. And they happened to be watching on the say that I said, ooh, you know what I wanna do in July? I wanna go to Guns N’ Roses. Next thing you know, so I’m getting this phone call. And then they’re like, look, we want you to be our special guest there. (audience exclaims and cheers)
Oh, no, no, no. Oh, no, no, no. Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. It goes even deeper. It goes even deeper. ‘Cause now I’m all the sudden feeling like I’m separating from the dirty dozen, ’cause you know, now I’m with the in crowd. You better not diss us! And look, this is a recent picture, look at Susan. So immediately, ’cause I was eating a sandwich, I put that sandwich down. (audience laughs)
I’m like, oh, no, no. All right, so Duff’ll be on stage playing the bass with everybody else, right? They’ll be singing, we’ll be rocking out. She wants me to sit next to her in the wives and girlfriends row. Yup. Yup. (audience applauds) Right! I gotta diet down. And roll ’em up to a thong. Yes! (audience laughs)
Uh-huh. Tie up that shirt and get in there and rock out. And the rest of you all. (audience laughs)
No, I did look out. No, no, look. We’re still gonna have that box, we’re still going together in the Sprinter. It’s just that when we get there, there’s gonna be some, I gotta sit with the wives and girlfriends in the front row. Okay.
All right? Maybe you’ll come check in on us. I will.
Okay, good. ‘Cause that’s where the rest of the food’s gonna be. Exactly.
I can’t sit in the front row and eat.
Exactly. Not with somebody next to, no, I can’t even eat in front of her. I might have to get a rib removed or something. (audience laughs) I don’t know. That’s gonna be a good time though. (audience applauds) It’s gonna be good, it’s gonna be good. It’s gonna be so good. (laughs) (audience laughs) So Al Pacino’s ex-girlfriend says that they broke up because of their 39-year age difference. (audience exclaims) I’ve been trying to get to this story for like, the last two days, but all the sudden, Doug holds up the sign and says 30 seconds, I have no more time on Hot Topics. So she’s 40 years old, that’s old enough. But he’s 79. (audience exclaims) She’s an actress, nobody that we’ve ever, I’ve never heard of her. But they’ve been dating for two years. And so when you met him, girl, and you were 38, and he was 77, why didn’t you realize that at that time? (audience laughs) I had a date with a 65-year-old man, that’s only a 10-year age difference and I was like, nope, I’m not ready for this. (audience laughs) I’m not ready for that. (audience applauds) No. And he had a lot of money and the whole bit, real smart, and Ivy League-trained. But I was like, uh-uh, okay, after this dinner, I gotta rock him to sleep gently. (audience laughs) No, pops, this is not my groove. I’m still doing ow! (Norman and audience laugh) You know? The purpose of meeting somebody is to grow old together. If you meet somebody, they’re already old, then what kinda growth is that? (audience laughs) Look, look. (audience applauds) Her name is Meital, like the toy company. Yes!
Okay. (laughs) (audience laughs) That’s a good name though, in a weird way, but it’s a good name. So Meital says that she tried to deny to his age because he’s such a legend. Now she actually said this. “But it was just too hard to be with a man so old.” Then she had the nerve to get in there and say, and he was cheap. (audience exclaims) He would only buy her flowers, that’s it. He would only buy her flowers. Like, I guess she’s mad she didn’t get a Rolls Royce and diamonds and stuff like that. But you wanna know what? You’re petty. (audience applauds) And you know what, Meital? You’re only 40 years old, you’re still old enough to learn from the error of your ways. If I were you, I would not repeat to the next man about this article, ’cause now it’s all out there. The next man, I don’t even know if you’re datable, ’cause you’re petty. But here’s the thing, Meital. Even though he only gave you flowers, which is kinda cheap. There’s nothing like being with a generous man, except, if you’re a girl at 40 years old, buy your own Gucci bag, you know what I mean? (audience applauds)
Or whatever. But I must say, even though he only gave you flowers, he also gave you a lifestyle for two years. You know you were laid up there in that mansion. You were goin on five-star vacations, meeting A-list people, driving in the best cars, flying private. There’s certain things that, Meital, you did benefit from. Just because you didn’t leave with a collection of handbags and finery, doesn’t mean that you didn’t benefit from this relationship. And I don’t even blame Al Pacino for this, ’cause this is what old men like. (audience laughs) If you don’t read the headlines, you need to pick up a paper. (laughs) Right. (audience applauds) A tear or five escaped yesterday when I was watching that the NASCAR driver, Ryan Newman was released from the hospital. Aw. After that fiery, look at him with his daughters. Aw.
Yeah. (audience applauds) He’s walking better than some people that I know. (audience laughs) And there he is with his daughters. The horrific crash was on Monday in his final lap at the Daytona 500. The finish line was right there in front of him. So Ryan, it’s nice to see you’re up and about. (audience applauds)
It really is. Congratulations, you made it. Keep clapping a little louder. (audience cheers) Hot Topics is done. We got more great show for you, everybody. Up next from “Dolemite”, Da’Vine Joy Randolph is here. So grab a snack and come on back. (audience cheers)
(upbeat music) Please welcome Da’Vine Joy Randolph. (audience cheers)
(upbeat music) Ooh-ooh! Welcome. So good to meet you. I love a good denim remix. Thank you, thank you. (audience cheers) Hi. Did somebody make this for you or did you–
Someone did make this for me. LA. Do they make other clothes besides for you?
Denim. She is the denim–
Queen? Yes, RawEdge in LA.
I love this. Thank you. (audience cheers) Does it have back pockets? You could do whatever you want. I have front pockets, you could add a pocket. Yeah, we just designed it. And she’s fast. Really? She’s fast, like, two days fast. Wait, now, hold on now. We’ll talk in commercial. We will.
Okay. Shoe Cam, put your feet on those feet. And look in that, and model. (audience cheers)
(dreamy harp music) Let me see your heel. What height are you working with? What is this, like, three? Little something, yeah, comfortable. Yeah, ’cause I’m a size 11, so. Me too! Okay, so you already know. Yeah, well, I go up to a size 12, and now I have lymphedema, so I’m down to sneakers, but yeah.
I think I have plantar fascia, like that shooting pain that you get. Heels are serious. Well why don’t you wear flats? Oh, I do. So I’ll go to red carpets, it’s bad, it’s bad. I gotta get better at it. I’m known for it now, it’s so sad. The people will be like, where are your slippers? And I’ll be like, oh my God. (audience laughs)
So I’ll wear ’em, I’ll wear the heels, take the shot, put those slippers on immediately.
Yup, yup. (audience applauds) Do you like red carpets? I do, I do. You look very glamorous. Thank you. To be really honest with you, Wendy, as a curvy girl, it is very, very important to me that I can, to the best of my ability, serve looks, and let them know that we can look fly too. Those are all really pretty dresses. Thank you.
(audience applauds) And you know what I like? It took me a while to wanna show my upper arms and now I don’t care. Who cares? The yellow dress you’re showing everything. The black dress is really fabulous and a leg. But that pink dress? (audience applauds) That’s the one.
Thank you. Yeah, I love that. Those two, the black and the yellow, I designed them myself (audience exclaims)
and just had someone make it. Sometimes that’s what we have to do. Yeah.
When we’re challenged. You know, I’m challenged. I don’t know about you. It must be nice to be able to just walk into a store and just jump into anything. I don’t know what that is like. Yeah, I get it.
(audience laughs) So congratulations on “Dolemite”. Thank you. (audience cheers) Now see, that’s another fly outfit with an overcoat, a good wig, and a good attitude. And you good to go.
Yes! How was it meeting Eddie Murphy? Were you starstruck? So it was interesting. So when I had auditioned, I had not, I didn’t do any of the audition with him. So the first time I met him was on set. And I didn’t know that it was it an Eddie Murphy movie until my final callback. And they were like, ’cause you know, and Eddie. And I was like, ooh. (audience laughs)
Y’all let that slip. But when they said Eddie, why wouldn’t you just have thought, like, maybe Eddie Griffin?
Who, Eddie who? Eddie Griffin or something like that. Not Eddie Griffin, no, Eddie Murphy. (audience laughs)
Yeah, yeah. Yeah, Eddie Murphy. I would’ve run back to my trailer for a moment, called my mother and cried. Well yeah, so what it was, was so I knew at the final callback. So I was like, all right, girl, this is it. This is an Eddie Murphy movie, pull it together. So did what I had to do, thank God got the part. And then on our first day of shooting, I was just like, listen, as I was driving, I was like, you got two hours to like, fan-girl out about Eddie Murphy and then pull it together and let it go. Two hours in the driving commute? That’s right. That damn LA traffic.
That I was like, an hour there, an hour prep. Because we play confidantes, each other’s counterparts. So it wouldn’t have worked if I just was like this all day. So I was like–
You had to be confident. Yes. And on the same page. And I was the only woman in the movie on a day to day like that. So I had to let that go and release. And then be present. (audience applauds)
To the best of my ability. And then, so much has happened to you. I mean, you were in that big, important “Vanity Fair” issue. Yeah. With everybody. (audience applauds) That’s crazy.
Another fly outfit. Thank you. I love the pose. Thank you.
Love the car. I know, right? Yeah, no, that was amazing. My publicist had called me and told me and I just started crying. I was gonna say, when do you start crying about this? Come on, be a girl, girl.
At that one, that one? I just started crying. I was like, (cries).
(audience applauds) Like, the ugly cry. ‘Cause you don’t, you know, as a curvy girl, you’re just like, oh, I hope a fashion magazine would be interested in interviewing me, just in general, let alone to be in an issue.
And that’s an industry magazine, that’s bigger than a fashion magazine for the industry. And they treated me so well, and I felt super comfortable. They had multiple dress options, it wasn’t a thing– Aw.
Yeah. It made a big difference. Not like, you know when you get there and they’re like, it’s this one or this one, so go ahead? And you’re like–
And they already asked your publicist your measurements and everything? Everything. So that let me know it’s possible. You need those kind of experiences, and working with Ruth Carter to know it’s possible. (audience applauds) ‘Cause sometimes you feel like, well, this is what I have to do.
And sometimes, sometimes they get the makeup ashy too. (audience laughs)
Yeah. They might get the costume right, but the makeup is wrong. So here’s the thing. Yale graduate. (audience cheers)
Yes. I adore that part of your story. I mean, “Dolemite”‘s good, and “Vanity Fair” is good, but Yale? Yeah, thank you.
So, wait, where did you grow up, how did you get into Yale? I grew up in Philadelphia. Thought I was gonna be a singer. (audience applauds)
Uh-huh, uh-huh. And then this girl came to our high school, she was new, and she was like, I went to Interlochen, which is this well-known performing arts school for middle school, high school. So I was like, I don’t like her tone, I’m going. (audience laughs)
‘Cause I’m just competitive, right?
Right, right. And so went in, but I found out it ended up being like, classical music, opera. So I ended up being trained, so I’m a classically trained opera singer. (audience cheers) And, yeah, so I went to college for it at Temple University. Okay, so you went to Temple. I went to Temple, I studied it there. And then what happened?
And then I got kicked out. (audience exclaims) What were you doing? I know, nothing, right, it’s so corny. Opera, like, what you gon’ do? No, we were doing an opera, we were doing “Aida”.
But how do you get kicked out at Temple?
Well, you know what it is? Was it a fist fight? No, I wasn’t fighting nobody. No, what it was was that they, a lot of times if programs don’t have a musical theater department, the said theater and music department, I think, get nervous and territorial. So basically what it was is I worked with the theater people, a coach, ’cause I wanted my performance in the opera to be good. I, by no means, wanted to be an actor. They removed you, you didn’t get kicked out. They removed her.
Well, they flunked me out. Oh, see, they did that on purpose. So then what happened, how did you get to Yale? Get to the Yale part. ‘Cause my mother said, you gonna get a degree, so go across the street to acting. And so then I did that for like, my last year. And then it was the teachers at Temple in the acting department that was like, you should apply for graduate school, you have a gift in doing this naturally.
And so you applied to Yale? They applied for me. (audience exclaims) You are such a lucky girl. So look, her classmates are people that we actually know. Her classmate was Lupita. Yeah.
(audience exclaims) And, and– So Lupita was under me. In my class was Trai Byers from “Empire”. Look at that. And Marcus Henderson. And then we had Winston Duke that was the class under Lupita, so it was like, doo, doo, doo. And then you have Mamado now and Yahya. It’s the people of color. And then before you guys it was Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance. Sanaa Lathan. Sanaa Lathan. This, (stammers) what do you call those schools? I forgot, these Ivy League schools, I don’t know why I’m so impressed by that, but it never gets dull to me when I find out, oh my gosh, Ivy League. So Zoe Kravitz is in “High Fidelity”. Yeah. And you play her best friend. And she owns the record store and you’re right there with her. Tell us about the show so that people who don’t watch are seduced. Yeah, so it’s based off the movie with John Cusack and Jack Black. Basically, it’s based on from our point of view, that it’s a girl who has dated and gone through the whole thing in a New York scene. And so she’s had five heartbreaks that she remembers and are markable to her. She wants to have the man, she wants to settle down, but she realizes there’s patterns that keep happening that prohibits–
So she calls the guys and gets together with the guys, Zoe does, and– Trying to figure out what’s wrong.
Trying to figure out what happened to make herself better for the next relationship. It’s a really good show. You’re a really good girl. Thank you. Yeah, so nice to meet you. So lovely to meet you. For more information about “High Fidelity”, you need to check it out, it’s on Hulu. Thank you, Da’Vine. Thank you.

Yeah. What a headache. Oh, yes, oh, yes.
(audience laughs) All right, so how can I help you, Shay?
So, my question. So my ex and I split up over the summer. It was kinda more his decision, ’cause he’s a little bit older and he said– How much older? I’m 23, he’s 29. Okay, how long were you together? About six months together.
Okay, okay. So we split up over the summer, and then a few weeks ago he asked me out for drinks. I’m like, okay, so I’m thinking he wants to maybe get back together, start things up again. So I show up at the bar and it’s him, myself, his new girlfriend, and all of her friends. (audience exclaims) So I’m just a little confused. Did you stay? Oh, yes. And he was buying me drinks all night. What was she doing? She was like, you two used to date, right? That’s so funny, that’s adorable. And I’m just super confused with the situation. He’s not yours, and you were only with him for six months. Oh, yes, oh, I know. So what’s your actual question to me? Is he trying to make me jealous? I just don’t know what that situation–
Block his number and leave him alone, that was only six months. Six months, yup.
And you’re still young. You’re right.
And apparently, so is he. Yes, okay.

Hello, thank you. Hi, Wendy.
How you doin’? How you doin’? What’s your name?
My name’s Damiah. Where you from?
I’m from Atlanta, Georgia. And what do you do? I work in the music industry. Okay, so how can I help you? So recently I’ve been dating a guy for a couple months. Somebody in the music industry? No, thank God, no. (audience laughs)
Okay, okay. Couple of months, that’s two.
Yeah, a couple of months. And last month, we had a little sleepover. Is this a first one? Yeah. Okay, no, no, no, it’s okay. Look, I’m that girl. If you feel something in somebody, then first night is fine with me. (audience exclaims) You just have to be adult enough to know how to deal with it. You right, you right.
Okay? So you took your time, let it wait a whole month. (audience laughs) What happened? So I woke up the next morning, he was in a really bad frantic. I woke up and realized he peed in my bed. (audience exclaims) (Damiah laughs) Did he at least help you flip the mattress? You know, he bought me a new mattress. He bought me a new mattress pad, the bedding, and everything. And what is your question to me? So my question is, it’s been superly awkward since then. And (sighs), should I let him go? I mean, this is awkward to me, personally. Girl. Okay, so just leave him alone, it was two months. You live and you learn. Even adults wet the bed. (audience laughs) Sorry.
Thank you. Terrible. (audience applauds) Come on over, how you doin’? Hi, Wendy, my name is Claudia, how you doin’? Hi, Claudia, that’s one of my favorite names, I always say it. Thank you. How can I help you, Claudia? I’m a funeral–
Where are you from? I’m from Staten Island, New York. You’re a funeral?
I’m a funeral director. Okay.
From Staten Island. I have a problem. When people I love are in the hospital, I feel awkward going to visit them because I don’t want them to think I’m there for their body or their business.
Like the grim reaper. So how could I show my love for them without making them feel? Play like Al Pacino and lead with flowers. (audience laughs) Okay. You know, or balloons. And a nice, pink, don’t wear black. Take this all the way off. You know what I mean? And just go and don’t keep your visit long. Just, you know, you know, be chimmy-cheer. I get it though. Ooh, what a business.
It’s scary, I don’t wanna freak them out. Yeah, I’d be freaked out too. But don’t wear black and don’t forget the flowers. Balloons are probably better ’cause they’re happier. Okay
Thank you. You’re welcome, Claudia. Up next, everybody, we’re playing 20 in ’20. Don’t go far. (audience cheers)
(upbeat music) Ooh-ooh! (audience cheers)
(upbeat tropical music) All right. It’s time to play 20 in ’20. Now Gina over here is a real firecracker. Gina’s from Long Island. You are a mortgage broker.
Yup. All right, well, are you ready to spin? I’m ready, born ready.
We wanna send you away. She said born ready. You wanna go see Guns N’ Roses?
I can’t wait. Yes, I do! Here we go, three, two, one, go. (wheels clicking)
(audience cheers) (upbeat tropical music) Oh!
Yeah! Come on, come on, come on.
Okay, okay. We landed on Paris Hilton and you got the Grand at Moon Palace. Mr. Announcer, tell us what it’s all about, go. It’s a trip to the Grand at Moon Palace in Cancun, Mexico. We’ll fly you and a guest roundtrip for a five-day, four-night stay at this luxurious, all-inclusive resort. You’ll spend your trip enjoying stretches of gorgeous beaches, gourmet dining, and evenings at their ultra-chic nightclub, Unique. Their massive waterpark is perfect for letting loose and having fun. This trip will be one to remember. (audience cheers)
(cheers) All right, Wendy. Please, gimme a good one, gimme a good one. It’s a question about Paris. Okay, she recently celebrated her birthday. How old is Paris Hilton? Aw.
(clock ticking) She’s. 39. That’s right!
Oh my gosh, you’re going! (audience cheers) I won? Yes!
I won! (Gina and audience cheer) We’ll be right back. (Gina cheers and laughs)
(upbeat tropical music) (audience cheers)
(upbeat music) Ooh-ooh! It’s time to play Celebrity Face Swap. Now, who are you, where are you from, what do you do? How you doin’? How you doin’? Jillian Highshaw, Kansas City, Missouri, agricultural lawyer. Okay. (audience applauds)
Jillian. We’re gonna blend two celebrity faces together and you have to tell me who each one is, not just one, but both. All right, let’s see the picture. I did not guess this. I don’t know, I need a hint. Okay. They’re both actors. We like her and he, I like him, but he was better when he was sober, and now he is. He wants to get back with her in my mind, but it’s not gonna happen. They’re both actors. Ben Affleck? Yes, and? Jen Garner? Yes.
(bell dings) (audience cheers) A 60-minute massage at Haven Spa. And we’ll be right back. Thank you.
Nice job, Jillian. (audience cheers)
(upbeat music) Ooh-ooh! (audience cheers)
(upbeat music) You see it up close and personal, cute, right? Yes, I love it. Everyone, this is Doria Davis and she’s from Florida and she’s my Eye Candy, you know I love all this. (audience cheers) Doria, and including your hair coloring, I was making eye contact with you all during Hot Topics. Yeah, talk about your look. Okay, so I’m Florida, and it’s a little colder up here, so I had to invest in a little fur coat. And this dress.
Cute. I actually got this for a New Years party that I never went to.
Keep that away from your hair, okay? (audience laughs) So I pull it out of the closet for you today, ’cause I know you love– A sparkle.
Sparkly! Yeah, and your shoes. Yeah, so I’m a Latina, my heels are always on, even when it’s cold outside. But I had to dress these for you. Well thank you for being here, Doria. There’s your diva fan, she’s my Eye Candy, and we’ll be right back. (audience cheers)
(upbeat music) (audience cheers)
(upbeat music) I wanna thank my guest today. Da’Vine, it was so nice to meet you. Please don’t be a stranger. My cohost, my studio audience. (audience cheers) You all are strange, and I like it that way. Tomorrow my Hot Talk panel is here to break down the hottest, latest Hot Topics. I love you for watching today and I’ll see you next time on Wendy, bye. (audience cheers)
