Janet Hubert (Aunt Viv) PENS OPEN LETTER To Wendy Williams, SAYS She BULLIED Whitney Houston!

Actress Janet Hubert is directing her venom at someone OTHER than Will Smith now.....picking Wendy Williams as a target. She lashed out recently at Wendy and called her a bully due to the things she said about Whitney Houston over the course of their careers. Read the letter inside.....

Janet Hubert thinks Wendy Williams is a big ole bully and should stop spreading rumors about celebrities.  She thinks Wendy was especially cruel to Whitney Houston throughout the course of her life.

Here's an excerpt from the letter written after Wendy broke down during her show about the death of Whitney:

Dear Wendy,

This past weekend was a very difficult time for so many of us.

I watched the funeral service with the rest of the world, and cried time and time again with each story that was told. I felt like I knew more about this amazing woman than ever before. We all watched her as a little girl, center stage, singing like a bird, she was destined for superstardom. To watch her center stage full circle in death was a feeling no mother should ever have to feel. I applaud Ms. Warwick, the pastor, and all others who formed a police line of love and protection around her that was impenetrable only to those who really knew her. We, the public accepted their decision to keep it private, but they allowed us to witness her Home Going ceremony, I don’t know if I could have been so gracious. WE felt like we knew her and we knew nothing about her except what we read and hear from people like you and other media outlets. I listened to her interview with you and was compelled to say out loud. “Go on Whitney tell her like it is,” when you pried into her life back then. I had my son in the same year as Ms. Houston; we did Ebony Magazine that same year, she introducing her baby girl and me my son. I am trying to be dignified, but here goes.

The Internet has become somewhat like the 10 commandments, and this is why… whatever is posted or commented on… is forever written in stone. Neither I nor anybody can stop anyone from making up stories, reviews, lies etc, cutting and pasting whatever they decide to put together like a bad buffet breakfast.

I have had some horrible meals shoved down my throat on the web that I had no parts of.

I still have a bad taste in my mouth from a recent cut and paste meal from your beloved TMZ (THE MUDSLINGING ZONE). I believe you said once “If you heard it on TMZ then it must be true,” really Wendy?

The Internet is indeed the information highway, but it can also be “a Forum of Hate.”

Though I never knew Whitney Houston, I felt a profound sense of loss and sadness. On Sunday morning I took my dog for a walk in the park across the street and still could not shake the sadness I felt. I wondered if what I was feeling was perhaps related to losing my mother and brother this past year, but then I thought no, it was something else.

You (Wendy Williams) said that morning with tears in your eyes, that you would not discuss Whitney any further, but you crucified her the whole time she was alive, as you do so many people on your show. I want to ask you why?  What do you get out of this besides money?

How do you sleep at night knowing that you are one of the biggest bullies in the world disguised as HOT TOPICS?  Celebrities are not topics we are people, just like everyone else, we hurt and we hear and we bleed real blood, not fake blood, just as you do.

How do we as parents teach our children to honor each other, treat each other with kindness when all they see are images of people like you who condone and promote meanness, rude reality TV stars, and  your opinion as you berate world renowned people like Janet Jackson, Gwyneth Paltrow, and others  you slam on a daily basis.

I keep asking myself why no one is saying anything about this.  What the hell are they afraid of?  Where are my sisters out there who feel as I do?

Well Wendy, I try to teach my son to stand up, shout, and scream when there is injustice.  Yeah yeah, I know, I have been screaming for years and will continue to do so as long as there are images that depict black women as neck shaking, over bearing women who can’t get along.

A sister, a mother, a daughter, a star, left this world way too early; she was loved by the world. The world mourned, I don’t think that we needed you to try and take down another brilliant sister on that following Monday morning. (Your rude comments about Janet Jackson)  

You started right back up without hesitation or pause… you need to stop Wendy. We need to stop, and the world needs to stop. I need to stop as well. There will be no more quotes from me to be misquoted.  We need to join together, wrap our arms around our children, everybody’s children. Remember you have a child who will suffer every slingshot and arrow that gets thrown back at you Wendy; our public lives greatly affect our children.

I know I am going to suffer some arrows for writing this letter to you, I know you are loved by many, but remember this Wendy; they love you when you are up and they love to take you down. You will not always be up, you will not always be on the A list and attend all the parties. Ride the wave sister girl, but make sure you know how to swim when the ride is over.  Artists are survivors, we work hard to build our crafts and careers and I ask that you simply remember that in the future.

I’m just sayin’ it like l mean it too.

Janet Hubert

WANT YOUR OWN AVATAR? GET IT HERE.

I agree a lot of what Wendy

I agree a lot of what Wendy says is negative about famous people. But, I think most celebs realize it comes with the territory. Many can aviod the spotlight but many choose not too. They also constantly promote themselves publicly by telling their business and even tweet every detailsuch as hi, I am using the bathroom or just got my car washed. Info we do not need to know. I think putting your business out and being talked about by people like Wendy ensures their huge paychecks. The celebs with real talent are not even mentioned in gossip mags or hot topics. Wendy helps a lot of these celebs by keeping them relevant.

Janet told the truth! WENDY

Janet told the truth! WENDY IS HATEFUL! Plus most of you MF's on here do drugs ya damn selves. It's great to praise rappers when they do or rap about drugs but no, hate on Whitney. When your love one dies of an overdose or whatever cause don't cry, Just say who gives a F like some of you all are saying about Whitney!

When you become a public

When you become a public figure, you subject yourself to this. Sorry but true. Wendy Williams just says what a lot of us think. While I totally understand where Ms. Hubbert is coming from, she sounds a little bitter and angry. Wendy and Whitney were cool with each other. If you listened to the whole interview, Whitney told her like it was but was also very nice to her.

Totally agree. Wendy is

Totally agree. Wendy is everything that is WRONG with todays Popular culture. It's a disgrace that she's on TV every day simply to ridicule people. There must be something really empty inside that drives a person to slander others for $$. She's a sad sad excuse for a black woman and the worst role model on TV. Makes me sad to be living in an era that supports this.

I agree and disagree with the letter. Firstly when Whitney was alive WE all made fun of her and no one can sit up here and say they didn't enjoy a laugh or two when it came to Whitney or Bobby crazy antics. It's sad that it took for her to die before we truly appreciated the talent she brought to the world.

I am soooooooooooo tired of

I am soooooooooooo tired of this chick! Yeah, Wendy was wrong for saying what she said about Whitney while she was here! And yes, her tears aren't genuine. But damn Janet! Stop attacking people and get a life! Seriously! First Will and now Wendy!? Wendy's scum, she'll always be scum for getting into people's personal business. That’s nothing new! Wendy’s not the first of her kind and she won't be the last. Attacking Wendy should have been high on your list way before Whitney’s death. Opps, forgot, Will will always have that top slot! Instead of trying to find people to attack, take some time to work on your craft (acting) so that you can at least TRY to get a job! GEESH! Maybe if we all ignore her(Janet), she'll go away! :-)

That is so true.How ironic was it ,that she cried after Whitney died. I found her to be very phony. Wendy knew (real Whitney Houston Fans)would remember how she provoked Whitney,she played the silly crying game,to get sympathy.All Wendy Williams cares about is her ratings ,her enormous boob's and a ring that gets bigger every week. I will never forget how wendy talked to Whitney on the radio. RIP Whitney,you have gone where you can't be hurt anymore,no more sufferng!she will live on through her music.

I believe that most people

I believe that most people can appreciate the msg within this letter, and recognize the impact of media and entertainment, but what has been achieved here really??? What Janet criticized Wendy for is exactly what she achieved by writing the letter and it is evident in many of the responses. Wendy is now being judged, criticized, ridiculed, and made fun of publically; It is still a woman bring down another woman as mentioned in another post. I also find it funny when she defends herself and all other celebrities because if you can identify yourself as a “celebrity” I hope you can also identify that you have also benefited and made profit off of entertainment, media and “CELEBRITY.”

I absolutely agree Wendy's

I absolutely agree Wendy's tears were all about self-hatred, shame and regret. If you have no wrong you don't need to cry like that. The people that were close to her didn't cry in front of the cam. It's a sad thing she is dead but it was a long time coming- truth be told! People like Wendy made it hard for Whitney to believe in herself so she as an addict was drawn to the drugs to gain more confidence...not that it was all Wendy but she and people like her make other peoples life a hell. I must admit I caught myself smirking to some jokes she made but now that Whitney is dead she should own her ugly behaviour and not act like she had a special bond with her. Whitney must've been turning her grave when Wendy talked about how she wished Whitney would have won the fight over her addiction. Janet oh Janet- I just love this woman and even if it's just the fact that she's alread on the bottom she uses the little fame she has left for the right things.

I myself could not understand Wendy's tears when all she did was make fun of Whitney when she was alive......I'll never forget when Wendy was on the radio talking shit about Whitney when Whitney had her limo driver pull up in front of the radio station. Whitney was aiming to run up those stairs and whip Wendy's a-- but security caught her just in time.LOL.

You just spoke the truth.

You just spoke the truth. Who cares about what she has to say when she is still holding a grudge with Will Smith after all of these years. I think she wrote the letter to try and get some attention again. Who Cares What She Thinks???!!! She better be careful, Wendy will fill hot topics with her nothing a$$....
Anonymous's picture

I agree with Janet's letter.

I agree with Janet's letter. With all the real issues happening in the world.. Media journos including Wendy should find hot topics other than celebrities with issues/struggles/problems. That's no bueno. Wendy Williams makes African American look bad. Horrible reflection of us..

If Wendy filled hot topics

If Wendy filled hot topics with "issues/struggles/problems," it would be a different show and nobody would watch.

Aunt Viv may be crazy, but

Aunt Viv may be crazy, but the woman can write! For those of you applying to college, this is a personal statement that commands attention. Regardless of how anyone may feel towards Aunt Viv, the content of the letter is extremely true. I also appreciate her realness. A lot of these celebrities, i.e. Meagan Good, have talked at length about their "friendship" with Whitney, blah blah blah. However, I don't know to what extend or how valid these claims are. Aunt Viv comes to the average reader's level. She connected with me; although I did not know Ms. Houston, her death touched me in a weird way. Wendy Williams is a bully, and basically what Aunty Viv was saying here is, don't sell your character and integrity to the mighty dollar. Wendy Williams is living in regret, and while I feel for her, Aunt Viv was speaking some truth.

WENDY- I HOPE YOU TAKE THIS

WENDY- I HOPE YOU TAKE THIS DEEP INTO YOUR SOUL BECAUSE IN THE END, YOU WILL HAVE TO LIVE WITH ALL THE NEGITIVITY YOU HAVE SPREAD OVER THE YEARS. YOU ARE A VILE PERSON WHO HAS BEEN A PILE OF TOXIC MATERIAL FOR YEARS NOW. YOU LOWER THE LEVEL OF AWARENESS ON THIS PLANET. YOU BRING PEOPLE DOWN RATHER THAN HELP THEM RISE. RE THINK YOU WORK AND WHAT YOU PUT OUT INTO THIS GOD GIVEN GIFT CALLED LIFE. IM SO GLAD JANET KEPT IT SO REAL, SHE MIGHT BE SAVING YOUR LIFE. GOD SPEAKS THORUGH OTHERS AND YOU HAVE NOT BEEN OPPERATING FROM A SPACE OF LIGHT. WENDY, YOUR LOOKS REFLECT YOUR SPIRIT. AND IF YOU EVER WONDER WHY YOUR GRAVELY UN ATRACTIVE, LOOK WITH IN. YOU SHALL FIGURE IT OUT QUICKLY.

I completely understand the letter, but just pointing the finger at Wendy, you too are tearing another sister down. I believe that Wendy was sincere, and let's face it; it's here job to report gossip whether its good or bad! She is just another reporter reporting the news. I am a huge fan of Whitney and she will be truly missed. As for Janet, practice what you preach because you have done it for years! Wendy. stay up and get your money! It's all for entertainment!

Im sorry but she sounds

Im sorry but she sounds BITTER! Wendy Williams is doing her job as an entertainer - reporting what is going on. Everybody does it - not just wendy. Why didn't she mention THE VIEW - they have hot topics as well. Bringing up the deaths in her family, etc... was NOT related to the topic at hand. NEXT. Sorry, sounds like she just trying to get publicity. And Wendy is not about bringing down black women - she is reporting the news. For that reason she said she wasn't going to report on Basketball Wives.... but anywho....

I too agree with Ms Hubert. The sad thing about (I won't attempt to keep it nice) IDIOTS like TruthHurts...is that their lives are elevated in the sadness of others'. I don't watch Wendy on the regular because frankly...I can't stand the "Drag Queen"! But, I will catch it when I hear a celebrity I follow will be on the the show. I still have not seen the "Trick" (break-down) about WHITNEY...the guilt ship that trick rode to fame will probably make me gag!
