TV One recently released a statement announcing that Vivica A. Fox will be joining the cast of “Hollywood Divas” for its upcoming second season.
The show will continue to follow the lives of original cast members Elise Neal (The Hughleys), Golden Brooks (Girlfriends; Second Chance Christmas), Paula Jai Parker (Hustle and Flow; The Summoning), Countess Vaughn (The Parkers) and Lisa Wu (Real Housewives of Atlanta), but this time Vivica will be added to the mix.
Following the news, Wendy Williams slammed Vivicia on her decision to join “Hollywood Divas.”
Wendy Williams explained on “The Wendy Show” that she felt “Hollywood Divas” is beneath Vivica and she should strive to do something more.
“Vivica Fox, I love you, but I hate this idea. You are above this,” Wendy said, adding, “For goodness sake, you were in Pulp Fiction! What are you doing joining the cast of Hollywood Divas?Now, there’s nothing wrong with Hollywood Divas and shows like that….but they are for a certain echelon of people. When I think of Vivica A. Fox, I’m not comparing her to Golden Brooks, from Girlfriends.Golden Brooks was on Girlfriends; respectable career, but where has she been? She’s not supposed to be in the same room, on the same cast as Vivica A. Fox. That’s all I’m saying.”
Wendy added, “It would be like if Mary J. Blige joined the cast of ‘R&B Divas’….Yeah, she was on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’, but that’s the higher tier of reality TV. But what I’m trying to do is show more respect for her to be a real diva of Hollywood.”
Though Wendy’s words do seem a bit harsh, we agree with the point she was trying to make. Vivica A. Fox is still very relevant and very respected in Hollywood.
“Hollywood Divas” is a show that is giving relevancy to underrated actress and Vivica doesn’t need that sort of platform.
