Wendy Williams Announces She’s Getting Treatment for Addiction

Woodstock 50 lineup… BTS Barbie doll… Ariana Grande’s payout… Cardi B hits the big screen… and Wendy Williams announces she’s getting treatment for addiction

The co-founder and producer of the original Woodstock is still alive! And so are some of the original acts from 50 years ago! And they’re all going to be part of Woodstock 50. It’s happening the weekend of August 16th really close to where the original music festival took place in 1969. The lineup is massive — Jay-Z, Chance the Rapper, Miley Cyrus, Halsey, The Killers, Imagine Dragons, Common, Janelle Monáe, and WAY more. Among the original musicians performing in the anniversary celebration are Santana, John Fogerty, David Crosby, Hot Tuna and Canned Heat.

I don’t have to tell J-Si this because he’s a huge K-pop fan, but soon you can have a BTS Barbie doll! Mattel has created a line of dolls that look just like the seven guys in BTS. Yesterday Mattel released a couple of pictures to tease us. The first one is all seven dolls lined up on stage in silhouette, and the second is a closeup of one doll’s lip and dimple. Fans are convinced that one is RM. You have to wait until summer to buy yours! But in the meantime, BTS’ new album is coming out April 12. And on April 13, BTS makes their debut on “Saturday Night Live.”

Ariana Grande’s song “7 Rings” is based on “My Favorite Things” from “The Sound of Music.” Before the song was released, Ariana’s team approached Rodgers and Hammerstein — the company that owns the rights to that musical, to get their approval. The company said, sure! As long as they got 90 percent of the royalties. And Ariana’s people agreed!! She needs to hire better negotiators…

Cardi B has never been ashamed of her stripper past, and now it’s actually helping her acting career! Cardi has landed a role in Jennifer Lopez’s movie “Hustlers,” which is about a group of strippers who drug and rob their rich clientele. It’s actually based on a true story! Other actresses who’ve signed on include Constance Wu from “Crazy Rich Asians,” Lili Reinhart from “Riverdale” and Keke Palmer from “Scream Queens.”

DailyMailTV has basically been stalking Wendy Williams’ every move for months. They say when she went to Florida over her holiday break, she was actually in a detox and rehab facility. And for the past couple weeks that she’s been back on the air, their cameras followed Wendy as she was picked up for work and then dropped back off at a sober living home that’s located above a barber shop. Just hours after DailyMailTV reached out to Wendy to get a comment before they published the story, Wendy went on her talk show and told her fans that yes, she’s been in a sober house and going to meetings because she used to have problems with cocaine. She stopped short of admitting what she’s battling now. But DailyMailTV has done their research. They say Wendy’s problems began back in 2017 when they broke the story that her husband Kevin had been seeing a mistress for TEN YEARS. Kevin told Wendy it was over, but the trust was broken. In December, DailyMailTV says Wendy hired a private investigator who found out Kevin was, in fact, still seeing the mistress. Of course, that led to a huge argument, during which Wendy allegedly “fell” and fractured her shoulder. (Kevin told her staff that she’d injured herself walking into a wall.) DailyMailTV says that while Wendy was recovering from her injury, she fell into a deep depression over the affair, and that’s when she became addicted to pain pills and booze.
