Small Bite: @WendyWilliams embraces her plastic image & says Black women are jealous #ReallyNow? #SMH

Full Platter:

If there's one person who isn't afraid to embrace her plastic image, it's Wendy Williams! How you doin? In a recent interview with XO Jane, Williams talked plastic surgery and says Black women are hesitant to get cosmetic procedures because they are "jealous" and "scared."  Wait...what? Yeah, she said jealous.

According to, Wendy reportedly said that Black women are "scared of what their other friends would say, or to break out of the box and be different..."  As for being Black, she says "Ugh, please. My people will not go for any kind of surgery. We are supposed to be natural. Ugh, whatever."

Oh? Not sure what to think right now... this has a big SMH written all over it.

Wendy, oh Wendy. It's great that you're proud of your plastic look, but perhaps women in general are afraid of what their fam and friends would think if they went under the knife?  There's nothing wrong with natural, and there's nothing wrong with "breaking out" even if that means plastic surgery. DO YOU, but no need to name call and get the whole community hyped up and what not.

What do you guys think of Wendy's comments? Did she cross the line? Share your comments below and check out the full story here.
