Live from New York City, it’s the Wendy Williams Show. ♪ Oh, yeah ♪ ♪ Feel, feel, feel it ♪ ♪ Feel, feel, it, it, feel it ♪ ♪ Feel it, feel it, feel it ♪ ♪ Let’s go, come on you need it ♪ ♪ How you doin’ ♪ How you doin’? Now here’s Wendy! (audience cheers)
(upbeat music) Ooh-ooh! Ooh-ooh! Ooh-ooh! Ooh-ooh! Ooh-ooh! ♪ How you doin’ ♪ Woo! Thank you for watching. (audience cheers) Say hello to my cohost, my studio audience. (audience cheers) How you doin’? How you doin’?
I’m doin’ okay. Let’s get started, it’s time for? Hot Topics! Come on. (upbeat rhythmic music)
(audience cheers) I like it, I like it, I like it. (laughs) Good morning, inmates. (audience exclaims) And Felicity Huffman. (audience exclaims) 14 days. So she starts today. It’s a federal correction institute in Dublin, California. Apparently this place is the same place that Heidi Fleiss stayed when she did here crime. Oh. It’s a minimum security cushy female prison. Now, I don’t know anything about cushy and prison, they don’t even belong in the same sentence. (audience laughs) But I guess in the crime world, there are levels to the game. I don’t know. So she’s in the room with three other women. And they have… (audience laughs) An open toilet. (audience exclaims) Which means that if you have to take a number two, or change a tampon, there is no stall, there are no walls, nothing. Like, you are just like, you know what? It’s only 14 days, I’d be sitting there just like this on the toilet. (audience laughs) Yup.
(audience applauds) Like, what are you going to do? Look, I’ll tell you, when I’m in the bathroom and they have all those stalls, I’m the woman, don’t like to close the stall. I don’t like to be closed in like that. I also don’t like to hear voices while I take care of my business. So this would totally aggravate me. I’d probably be constipated the whole 14 days. (audience laughs) (Wendy laughs) Well if that’s not enough, well then, at least they have a gym, a library, and a TV room. (audience exclaims) You know? She was also being issued a toothbrush, toothpaste, a comb. Now here’s the thing with a comb, depending on the texture of your hair, what you like to do with your hair, not any comb is a comb. (audience laughs) Like, I like a wide-tooth comb to rake through. And then when I get up to the baby hair area, I like a small-tooth comb ’cause that does the business. And I like a comb with a rat tail at the end. You know, the comb and then has that tail for hardness? ‘Cause you scratch your head at the same time you can lift and separate. (audience applauds) They’re also kind enough to give her soap. And she’s allowed to, and this is weird to me. She’s allowed to have one piece of jewelry under $100. I’m like, first of all, that’s a lot of money. Like, you can go to Claire’s, girls, you know. You can get beautiful jewelry for like, $5, $8, and whatnot, number one. Number two, who wants to wear jewelry and look pretty in prison? (audience laughs) Set you up for the take down. (audience exclaims)
No, no, no. No, you want to ugly down in prison. And that’s why you take horrific dumps. (audience laughs) Turn everybody off. By the way, we checked the menu for last night’s dinner. Salisbury, oh, excuse me, peppered steak. Now I don’t know about you, I like peppered steak. With a nice bed of steamed rice underneath, that’s what they have there. Now, they call them green beans, so it must be somebody not of color talking about this, ’cause we call ’em string beans. Right, right.
(audience laughs) Don’t we call ’em string beans? Green beans.
String beans, right. (laughs) I know. Cultural difference. And they have whole wheat bread. Wow. Whole wheat, can you imagine? They don’t have just the plain slice of white or something like that. Anyway, and today she’ll have bran flakes for breakfast. Well, that’s not so bad if they have a little raisin someplace and you throw the raisins on. Maybe a little packet of Equal on top just to flavor it up. She’s gonna have breaded fish sandwich for lunch. Yum!
No, no, that gets dicey. They didn’t say fried, they said breaded. And there’s a big difference. Now that right there sounds nasty. But she could do something with that. Just pull the breading off, put a little mustard on top, a little mayo at the bottom, and maybe if they have hot sauce there, you can work with that. (audience laughs) And then for dinner, why is my mouth watering from prison food, I can’t.
(audience laughs) I’m trying. (laughs)
(audience applauds) I’m trying to make the most of my 14 days. Okay, so for dinner tonight, we’re having Salisbury steak. Now look, I don’t know about you, there are three different things that people call Salisbury steak. Some people call them Swiss steaks, some people call them cube steaks, and then other people call them Salisbury steaks. I like cube steak. Oh my gosh! (audience laughs) Like, I could work with that. I’m surprised the food is so good. Whatever happened to just bread and water? (audience exclaims) You know what I mean? And I do like the idea of the open toilet. When she gets out, I’m sure she’s gonna do a sit-down interview and I’m positive this woman will work again. (audience applauds)
She’ll work again. And she’s gonna do some sit-down interview some place, maybe with the Robin Roberts or something like that. But it’ll be Lori Loughlin who will take the L for everyone. She’s going way up the river. Yup. (audience murmurs) (laughs) Just saying. So when she gets released, this Felicity, when she gets released after 14 days, first of all, I’m sure she’ll be thinner. Depending on if, like, I like the food, I’d probably get fatter. (audience laughs) Didn’t sound so bad to me. You have the right sauces, and you conjure up sauces and you make your own, I’m just saying, sauce is everything to me. A meal without sauce is not a meal. So when she gets released, she’s gonna be on probation for a year. Wah, wah, wah. A year of probation, so what does that mean, she can’t? What does that mean, you can’t commit another crime? Well I’m sure that won’t be difficult. She can’t smoke weed? But weed is legal in California, she can say she has the glaucoma or something. (audience laughs)
And get one of her fancy doctors, ’cause remember, she and William Macy, her husband, they still have money. Pay off a fancy doctor, get her the prescription for the weed, she could be chiefin’ all day long for a year and that won’t be violating probation. Okay, and then she’ll have to serve 250 hours of community service. That’s not bad at all, you know what I mean? And being fancy and in LA and stuff, her community service is probably gonna be something like volunteering for a youth group. It’s not gonna be out there on the 405 with a picker pickin’ up garbage, but that’s what they need to have her do. I’m just sayin’. (audience applauds) And the fine, her fine is payable. These are wealthy people, $30,000 for a fine. You are so distracting. You came for it, didn’t you, with the gold pants in the front row? Yes.
(audience cheers) You came for the party. And your friend too. You all are here for it. I’m gonna give it to you good, I’ll try my best. Michael Rapaport will be out here later. (audience cheers)
He’s a good one, he’s a good one. Okay, so here’s the thing. The N-word. Oh God.
(audience murmurs) And away we go. I was watching the debates, by the way, last night. Clap if you watched. (audience members applaud) Not enough people watch, Suzanne. Oh.
Did you watch? No. (laughs)
You didn’t? I didn’t watch, I was reading. Reading what? I’m obsessed with reading lately, I don’t know what happened to me.
What are you reading, Suzanne? I just finished reading the book about the crawdad singing. (audience murmurs)
What’s it called? “Where the Crawdads Sing”. Oh, it’s unbelievable, I finished it last night. (audience laughs)
No, unbelievable. It’s a New York Times bestseller list. No, no, it’s popular. So you don’t care about the state of our country? No.
(audience laughs) I watched with my niece, we were riveted.
I needed to finish the book, it was so good. Maybe we DVRed it. (audience laughs) I’ll fill you in, ’cause that’s time you will never get back in your life. (Suzanne laughs) Anyway, so “Jane the Virgin” star, Gina Rodriguez, right? So people are upset with her for saying the N-word. Well she might think she can get away with it ’cause she’s Hispanic, she’s from Chicago. It just, ugh, with this. All right, Gina posted a video of herself, she was getting her makeup done. And she’s singing the Fugees, “Ready or Not”. Now she was 12 years old when this song came out, so she grew up with Fugee music, she loves Lauryn Hill. And the lyrics were, “I can do what you do, “easy, believe me. “Frontin’ on the N-words, “gimme heebie-jeebies”. But she didn’t say N-word, she said the N-word, and she said it with a head rock. (audience exclaims) Right? She immediately took the post down and apologized. Take a look. I just wanted to reach out and apologize. I am sorry, I am sorry if I offended anyone by singing along to the Fugees to a song I love that I grew up on, I love Lauryn Hill. And I really am sorry if I offended you. Now I’m gonna start with, she’s a really great actress, she’s a very attractive girl, she’s very talented. But I have to end with, what planet are you from? Don’t you realize what is going on out here? You can’t get away with anything anymore. I love my gays, but I would never use the F-word, Norman. No.
Illegal, illegal. Get you a quick punch in the face. Right. They will throw you down the manhole. You will lay there for two weeks and be eaten by rats. By rats.
Shout out to New York, you know the story I’m talking about, that homeless man. (Norman laughs) I mean, that’s not funny at all. But it’s just. There’s certain things you don’t do. Just ’cause you’re cool with people, doesn’t mean that you have the past to say. I don’t remember the last time I called an Italian person the W-word. You know what word I’m talking about. It rhymes with bop. You don’t do that. And I like Italian people. And then men are particularly hot. (audience cheers) Just sayin’. It’s like, who you callin’ a bitch? Now that’s a word right there, girls, men, we use that word a lot, and a lot of times it’s in joking and jest and things like that. But it depends on who it’s coming from and the context in which it’s used. So you’re just better off not sayin’ it, or you’ll be down in the manhole eaten by rats for two weeks too. (audience applauds) You know? And here in New York, our governor Cuomo, he used the N-word in addressing something and he’s no longer with Sandra Lee, which means he’s really, really single. Just sayin’, just sayin’. (audience laughs) Anyway. I’m single too. (audience laughs) Just sayin’. (audience cheers) I only met him one time at a cocktail party, he was so kind. Really tall, and really present in the conversation. I forget what we talked about, all I was saying was like, wow. (audience laughs)
I’m talking to him like, Sandra Lee is really lucky. I betcha he takes her down. (audience exclaims)
Yeah. I can’t, I can’t, I can’t, I can’t. (laughs) (audience applauds) Anyway, but look. So the Governor Cuomo, Andrew, he used the N-word yesterday and people are making a big deal about it. But he did a disclaimer first. Let’s listen. Times also said in an article the other day, they were talking about going back to the Italian Americans ’cause you now have me– I read the article, yup. They used an expression that Southern Italians were called, I believe they were saying Southern Italians, Sicilians, I’m half Sicilian, were called, quote, unquote, and pardon my language but I’m just quoting the Times, (bleep) (bleep). N-word (bleep). Well how many times did he use it that we had to bleep it so much? (audience laughs) I mean, people might give him a pass because he prefaced before saying it, but even that, you didn’t have to preface, just say N-word. And that word, and during our Hot Topics morning meeting today, it was brought up, well, do you think that it should still be used in music? And I said (sighs). Look, we got more things to think about, you all. (audience applauds) I mean, people are walking down the street getting stabbed and killed for no reason. Black hate crimes are at an all-time high. Jewish hate crimes are at an all-time high. If you saw the debate last night, then you’re as confused as me. It’s every man for himself out here. And there’s certain things, going back to you, Gina, you just didn’t have to do it. Just don’t do it. (audience applauds) So Justin Bieber is trying to sell is house on Instagram. (audience exclaims) Well I think that’s very smart, you cut out that realtor fee. Keep all the money for yourself, hm. Anyway, he has 119 million Instagram followers, probably not one of them could afford this house. He paid $8.5 million for his home, but he’s selling it, including the furniture. I think that looks very peaceful. With the exception of these two $35,000 cats. What?
Oh, yes. He bought two of those specialized cats. They’re a mix between like, a wild. Ooh, they’re beautiful though. Remember when I was telling you I was gonna buy one of these cats? I ended up going to foster care and adopting Midway and Chitchat. (audience applauds) Aw. They’re in the pet spa right now until I come back from getting my star on the Walk of Fame. I took ’em yesterday, anyway, hi, girls. They’re gonna get their nails done. And they’re together. And they have a two-bedroom apartment there. It’s not even a cage, it was really nice. And then there’s a pass-way through where they can see each other and play with each other. They were really nervous to be left alone, ’cause I’ve only had them for a month. And I picture them saying, I think that she doesn’t like us anymore. She’s taking us away, I cried, I cried when I dropped them off. But a really good place. Anyway, but back to the situation on hand. I really was sneaking, you guys. I did price cats that looked like this, this was before I found out Justin Bieber had the cat, like, I’m looking online. Between $7,000 and $20,000, I was told. I was like, get out of here with that. I’m gonna get me two bum cats. (audience applauds)
Yup, yup. And take really good care of them. Anyway, $35,000, but they’re beautiful though, right? It’s okay if you think it, but just don’t participate in that. There are so many homeless animals out here, dogs, cats, squirrels and stuff. (audience applauds) And PETA. PETA is going after him like crazy. Anyway, back to the house. The house was built in 1932. Well-preserved, correct? Five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a library, a home theater, a beautiful kitchen. And I like the way he decorates. Did we say he’s selling it with the furniture? Furniture comes with it.
And the art? I like the way it looks. It’s sophisticated with a young man’s touch. I like the artwork and stuff. His idea is working about selling it on Instagram. ‘Cause maybe his Beliebers can’t afford it, but their daddies can. (audience exclaims) People of wealth are interested in buying this house, including a few billionaires, with a B. So this is what I think. I think that this is a great idea. He’s selling the house for even more than he paid for it, so he’s going to make money, he’s cut out the middle man realtor, good. And you would think a billionaire would not want to buy Justin Bieber’s house. We were talking about that in the morning meeting, like, who would wanna buy Justin Bieber’s house? I wouldn’t, because I’d be thinking, did he urinate in that corner too? (audience laughs and exclaims) How much funky spunk is on this couch? And burning sage won’t be enough to get all that out. (audience laughs)
You know what I mean? But if you are a billionaire, chances are you are working 24 hours a day, you barely know your children. But your children are Beliebers, you see? So then you say, Sicily, happy birthday, I got you Justin Bieber’s house. And then the whole family moves in and then all of a sudden the dad is the hero. And now he’s back on the road making billions not even knowing who his kids are. But you know what I mean. Anyway, I think it’s smart on Justin’s part. Good for him. (audience applauds) So remember the rapper Yo-Yo? ♪ Try to play me out ♪ Clap if you remember Yo-Yo. (audience applauds)
Okay. And of course we all know Da Brat, I love her, hi Brat. Anyway, they’re speaking out about the challenges facing female rappers. My opinion is this is not just facing female rappers, it’s facing women versus men all the time, regardless of what you do for a living. They say that the rise of women in hiphop came with double standards. They’re speaking out about their own struggles in the industry on Sunday night’s E! True Hollywood Story. (audience exclaims)
I know, I’m there. I didn’t know that they even still made that, E! True Hollywood Story. I am there for this, but take a look. Hiphop female artists continuously reinvent themselves. You have to constantly stay hot, or they move on to someone else. You’re expected to look a certain way. They want you to be beautiful, can’t get fat. But men can be fat as hell. Like, look at Biggie and look at Heavy D. Really, the main thing, you always wanna be (bleep)-able. (audience exclaims) (audience applauds) But that’s not just for female rappers, that’s for women in general. I mean, men are always allowed to be fat slobs, and we still accept it. And when women get to be fat slobs, you have to have a masculine swing, if you know what I mean. Because otherwise, they don’t look at you as able. Or maybe I said that wrong, but the point being, as a woman, we’re always struggling with our weight. It’s not fair. And men like Kevin James can be on “The King of Queens” and grab a hottie like Leah Remini as his wife. Homer Simpson got Marge. (audience laughs) Anyway, I understand her point, but I don’t believe that that’s just in entertainment. I think that that’s every day. Clap if you agree with me. (audience applauds)
Okay, good. So the E! True Hollywood Story airs Sunday night at 10:00 p.m. on E! And we’ve got more great show for you, everybody. (audience cheers)
Later on in the show, Mike Rap is here. But up next, it’s Celebrity Fan Out. So, grab a snack and come on back. (upbeat music)
(audience cheers) (audience cheers)
(upbeat music) Welcome back. Ooh-ooh. It’s time.
Ooh-ooh. For Celebrity Fan Out. All right, I love this. Our first Celebrity Fan Out comes from Michelle B. who watches the Wendy Show on KTTV in Newport Beach, California. Michelle writes, “Hey, Wendy, how you doin’?” How you doin’? (laughs) “I was on a remote beach “when I ran into Justin and Hailey Bieber.” Wow.
(audience cheers) Wow. She says, “I actually noticed her first “because of her model swagger. “We walked back to our cars together “and I tried to talk Hailey into camping sometime. “They were a very kind and genuine couple.” Nice.
Aw. (audience applauds)
Thank you, Michelle. Okay, our next Celebrity Fan Out comes from Sarah F. who watches the Wendy Show here in NYC on WNYW. Sarah writes, “Hey, Wendy, how you doin’?” How you doin’? (audience laughs) “I was walking to pick up my daughter from school “when I ran into Ja Rule.” (audience cheers) She says, “I knew it was him “when I heard his distinct voice. “I asked him if he was going to do another song “with J-Lo and he laughed.” (audience laughs) (audience applauds) I love his voice. Mrs. Rule is a very lucky woman. The next Celebrity Fan Out comes from Monica L. who watches the Wendy Show on KDFW in Euless, Euless, Texas. And Monica writes, “Hey, Wendy, how you doin’?” How you doin’? (audience laughs) “Two weeks into my new job at the airport, “I got to meet Chris Hemsworth.” (audience applauds) She says, “He’s really tall and sexy. “Needless to say, I love my job.” That’s a good one, thank you, Monica. And our final Celebrity Fan Out comes from Sandra S. who watches the Wendy Show on KTTV in Santa Clarita, California. And Sandra writes, “Hey, Wendy, how you doin’?” How you doin’? (Wendy and audience laugh) “I was at a theater when my daughter met, sorry, Garcelle Beauvais.” (audience applauds)
Ooh, fancy. “She was so sweet to my daughter “and told her that she was very pretty. “Garcelle has flawless skin.” Yeah, she does. (audience applauds)
All right, so here’s the deal. If you’ve ever had a celebrity encounter, sharing is always funny. Go to wendyshow.com for all the details. Michael Rapaport is next, don’t go far. (audience cheers)
(upbeat music) Ooh-ooh. (audience cheers)
(upbeat music) Welcome back.
Ooh-ooh. Our first guest is an actor and a comedian who stars in that drama that we all love, it’s called “Atypical” on Netflix. Well currently he’s on tour doing stand-up. Please welcome back to our show, Michael Rapaport. (audience cheers)
(upbeat music) It’s so good to see you. Nice to see you again as well. How you doin’, Wendy? How you doin’? It’s so good to see you, you look great. Thank you. Shoe Cam please. You see the Golden Goose. Oh, okay.
You see the Golden Goose. Okay, model, twirl. You see, boom, boom, boom. Golden Goose, Wendy, are you up on Golden Goose? Yes, I am. Okay, ’cause this is Italian, it’s handmade, it seems like up your alley. My wife loves them. They make some men’s ones. I got ’em, I feel good, I look fly, what’s good? (Wendy laughs)
(audience cheers) What’s good, Wendy? Well, ’cause the last couple times you came here– Disappointing. You kinda, the Shoe Cam, I didn’t say anything, Rap.
Disappointing. But you’ve upped your game. I upped my game. (audience cheers)
Yeah. And I’m not a big spender, but these cost a little money, and these are fresh out the box. I bought them to rock on your show, so I wasn’t playing.
Thank you. Thank you, Michael.
(audience cheers) I wasn’t playing, Wendy. You gotta get in the house quick before the monsoon comes though, later. You do not want to get them wet. I know, I got a box for them in there. So you mentioned your wife, Rap is married. He’s been married for how long? We’ve been married three years, yes. I don’t think that I ever noticed that you have a name ring for your wedding ring. That’s kind of a cute idea. It is cute, I have my regular wedding ring, and then we got these, I like this one, it’s old-school.
What’s her name, Kebe? Kebe, yeah, so this one’s cool. So cool. It’s just a little something, but I like it, it gives a little flavor to it. Sometimes the wedding ring’s kinda boring for men. But that’s a good idea though.
Yeah, it’s nice, I’m happy with it. Oh, yeah.
Aw. And your girls? Boys, good, they’re good.
Boys? 17 and 19. Oh, that’s a good age. They shave and all that.
Oh. And do they still live with you? Yeah, well one of them’s a college student. And he lives in Brooklyn and he shaves and he does 19-year-old stuff. I remember when I was 19. The last thing I wanted to do was live with my father. They’re good boys, they’re good boys. They’re doing well. (audience applauds)
Here’s the thing. I didn’t know that you did stand-up. Yes, well I started out, my first professional thing as a stand-up. I had no idea. Yeah, when I was 19. And I did it ’til I was about, I did it from like, ’89 to like, ’93, and then of course, the big retirement of 1993, which people are still getting over.
(Wendy laughs) And then I fell in love with acting, started acting. And then about a year ago, I decided to get back into stand-up. I love doing it, I’ve been touring the country. And I’m excited to– Do you use the N-word? On stage?
Yes. All the time, no I’m just playing. (audience laughs)
No. No, I don’t use the N-word. What are you crazy, of course not. ‘Cause some people would think that maybe, there’s certain people that are not black who take it that they have a pass because they are down with everyone. Like, you’re one of those people, you knock down all racial barriers. Why don’t you use it, Rap? Because, you know, I don’t like, I’m Jewish, I wouldn’t like anybody using the K-word. Yup, that’s what I’m saying. That’s what I’m saying. (audience applauds) And in my opinion, I grew up in New York City. If you were to use these words up until that word was started, you made ready to throw down. Yes. So I respect that. And there’s other words to use. I don’t know, it’s just not my thing. See? (audience applauds)
Okay. Have you ever been in jail? (laughs) I love you. I did a one-day bid once in Norfolk, Virginia for–
What’d you do? Trespassing. They were mad ’cause I was with some black dudes in a mall during the middle of the day. Uh-huh, uh-huh. So I did about like, 17 hours, a 17-hour bid. It takes a toll on you though, even in 17 hours.
I did a three-hour bid, it took a toll on me.
(audience exclaims) Yeah, it’s no joke.
I’ll talk about it in the movie. Jail’s not cool. No. For 17 hours, three days, 14 days, on lockdown for Felicity Huffman. The question I have is, they’re a married couple, they’ve been married for a long time. I’m not tried to get William H. a lockdown. A man should take the fall? What are you saying? I mean, how is, this is his wife, they have their kids, he has nothing to do with it? I’m not trying to get you locked down, William H., but what’s going on here? (audience applauds) Do you think he should’ve done the time instead of her? You know what I think?
‘Cause I think that, what is the point in being with a man if he’s not gonna do the bid for you? The 14-day bid, I mean.
Yeah. But think that this case was looked at so seriously that they knew she was the one from the family doing it, and they couldn’t have. Otherwise, they would’ve, I’m sure they would’ve been like, we’re gonna get ’em both, but he probably really, some parents, they focus on certain things in the household and this was probably her thing. Yeah. It’s crazy though, 14 days, she’ll be all right. She’ll come out, she’ll be ripped. She’ll be in there doing yoga. (audience and Wendy laugh)
She’ll be fine. This is nothing, she’s lucky it’s not 14 years. So I saw you on “Watch What Happens Live” when you were on there with Kenya. Yes. Are you watcher of the Housewives to begin with? Did you know who Kenya was, do you follow that? Does a bear go doo-doo in the woods? Okay, now.
(audience laughs) Okay, so you’re our guy. Oh, yeah. Okay, so you knew exactly who you were sitting with. But she flipped on you. Yeah, she tried me, and that’s fine. (Wendy and audience laugh) I started talking about the fact that her ankles were ashy when she tried me. (audience exclaims) I had to do it because she got into a whole other realm and I was like, yo, you’re on TV, bust your ankles though. Your ankles are like, they’re gravelly. They’re sandy right now. Michael, I can’t deal with you, I love you so much. But I think she got upset because I look at her and the characters on all the shows as characters. I know they’re reality, and she’s a great antagonizer. She’s the bad guy. It wasn’t a big deal, but because it was on “Watch What Happens Live” and I’m a guy, she’s a woman, she got racial and all that stuff. So I had to say, yo, buy your ankles are still ashy. (audience laughs) But I’m happy she’s coming back. And she’s got the baby.
She’s got the baby. She’s got the divorce papers, she got a lot of things going on. And for me, as a Housewives fan, and I really am a true-blue Housewives fan, their pain is our pleasure. So it makes for great TV. (audience laughs)
That’s true. We like other craziness in the cast. And Kenya to me, she’s a world-class hall of fame Housewife. As much as I might not like her character, she’s great for the show. Do you want Marlo to have a peach, ’cause I do. Yes, Marlo deserves a peach. (audience cheers)
She deserves a peach. She’s been putting it in for a few years. She’s been consistent, she’s grown, she’s softened, she’s opened up, she’s gotten more personal. Her wig game is insane. (Wendy laughs) I mean, the trip last year, the wigs were just, she should have a peach just on her wig game. (audience cheers)
Will you miss Bethenny on New York Housewives? Wendy, I am still reeling over the announcement of her, Bethenny Frankel’s retirement. It’s devastating, it’s almost like a death in the family. One of the great, I consider her the Michael Jordan of all Housewives. Okay. And I think obviously her jersey will be raised in the Housewives hall of fame, with her Manolo Blahniks. But I’m devastated by it, I really am. Will you miss Lisa Vanderpump in Beverly Hills? I will miss her. I will Lisa Vanderpump. That storyline last year got a little nuts, but if you don’t miss Lisa, you’re gonna miss Ken and his shirts. Like her husband, Ken, with the purple and pink shirts. Fabulous.
And the dogs. And the hair. So yeah, you miss them all when they’re gone. Is this family watching, you and your wife? I’m digging this conversation right here. (audience cheers)
(Michael laughs) Your wife is such a fortunate woman. You’re masculine, you’re a man. But you’ve got tendencies that we all like. Like, you watch the Housewives, which a lot of men think, ugh, that’s for women. I love it. My wife, I am way more lucky than she is, trust me. She puts up with this. She puts up with all of it. (Wendy laughs)
And some of it we don’t see. (audience applauds)
The smells, the sounds, the burping, the coughing, the farting, she puts up with it all, she’s very patient. And she’s the right woman for me, I love her. You love basketball.
Love it. Love it. What did you think about Lamar on “Dancing with the Stars”? You know, Lamar Odom was such a crafty basketball player. Left-handed, could dribble for a tall guy. The fact that he looked like his back hurt, his feet hurt, and I’m not gonna say that I’m a great dancer, but I was just surprised. Lamar, he can move when he’s dribbling.
You would think that he’d be able to dance better?
He looked crazy up there. But I love Lamar, I’m glad that he’s healthy. I’m glad that he’s moving forward in his life, and he’s a good dude with a good heart, so I’m happy for him.
Yeah, yeah. (audience applauds)
But. But, especially for a guy from Queens, this is a Queens dude, his dancing was shockingly bad. (audience laughs) That’s why I do it, I say it with love and respect. We obtained a video of you and your wife dancing. Let’s observe Rap dancing.
Yes, there it is. Yes.
There it is. (audience laughs)
Boom, you see it. (Wendy laughs)
You see it. I’m just saying this. (Wendy laughs)
(audience applauds) I will say this, Wendy. If you took that performance there that wasn’t rehearsed, that’s better than anything Lamar did, no disrespect, Lamar. (Wendy laughs)
(audience exclaims) And that’s my guy, I say it with love and respect. Okay, you can’t go anyplace, okay? Please.
I want you to participate in one of my favorite segments ever on this show. It’s called Ask Wendy.
Okay. (audience cheers)
Only it’s gonna be called Ask Wendy and Michael. I can’t wait. It’s next, keep it here. (upbeat music)
(audience cheers) Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh. (audience cheers)
(upbeat music) Ooh-ooh.
All right. Ooh-ooh. We’re back with Michael Rapaport. It’s time for Ask Wendy and the Rap. All right, come on over. How you doin’? (Michael laughs)
Hi Wendy and Michael, I’m Brianna, I’m from Los Angeles. How you doin’?
What do you do? I work for administration for a hospital. Okay, terrific, now how can we help you? So I’ve been dating this guy for about nine months. And we recently had sex. And it was trash. (audience exclaims) He was small. (audience exclaims) It was quick, it was just all bad. Wait, wait. So even prior to having sex, he never grinded on you, and you weren’t able to feel something? No. Okay. And he’s a really good guy. He’s nice, I like him. How old are you? 32. Okay, Brianna, is he age appropriate to you? Yes.
So what’s your question to us? Do I keep it moving or do I teach him how to do this?
You first, Michael. You gotta teach him how to do it. You gotta teach him how to do it. (audience laughs) I’ll say this, if he had waited, and it seems like he waited a good amount of time, he might’ve jumped the gun the first time. Let him relax. She’s a size-ist though, as well. Well that I get, I got no help for you in that department. (audience laughs) But if he’s a good guy, you guys could grow in that area, I think. He can’t grow specifically. (audience laughs)
But in that area in general. I hope, I hope, I hope.
Me too, me too. Well here’s my thought. My thought is waiting nine months before having sex with a guy that you’re dating is way too long. I agree. Now I don’t have tendencies towards whorish-ness, but I’m saying, three is the magic number. Third date, third week, third month. Because I’ll tell you, because by then you start to kind of fall in love and catch feelings, you know? Do you have feelings for him? Eh. (audience laughs) Oh well, then you gotta shut it down. You’re a hardened woman, then say bye. Yeah.
And move on to the next. Okay.
Yes. Thank you.
Wow. How do you date a guy for nine months and not get feelings? I don’t know how that works. Come along, sir, uh-oh. Uh-oh, come on over. Uh-oh.
Okay. Hi, my name is John Field, I’m from Wilmington, Delaware. Okay, you’re from Wilmington, Delaware, this is John. No, Rap, everybody’s trying to look at you. Wow, we match, look. Yeah, see?
Look, all right. John, what is your question for me and Michael? I live in a senior building. There’s a lot of young ladies that are looking at me. (audience laughs) Yes, but I’m not interested because I don’t want no committed relationship. I’m retired from Ford Motor Company for 26 years, I’m doing me now, you know what I mean? (audience applauds)
(Wendy and Michael laugh) I can’t. What I’m trying to say is, I don’t want to hurt nobody’s feelings or anything like that. I don’t know how to tell them what I haven’t told them already. You know, that, listen, you guys are looking for a committed relationship, that’s not me. (audience exclaims)
I don’t know what else to tell them. How can I tell ’em what I already have told them?
I like your delivery. Have you been intimate with any of these women? No, no, no, no.
(audience laughs) I like his delivery. I like it too, and they can see the sexuality. They can see the charisma.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. They can see the appeal, so I understand, but you gotta say like, you’re not for me. You’re not for me, chill. Find somebody, there’s plenty of fish in the sea. You can’t touch this. (audience laughs) I’m an old man, I mean, I’m 75 years old, you know what I mean? So I don’t want nobody that’s 75 with me. What do you want? My girl that I’m seeing now, I’m sorry, my girl that I’m seeing now is 46 years old. There you go. Okay?
All right. I think 40, 50, I’m good with that. You know what I mean?
Right, right. But when you get older than that, get away from me. Okay, thank you, John. All right.
(audience cheers) Adorable. Michael.
He’s not playing. Thank you so much for being here, Michael Rapaport.

So as we all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and today’s Eye Candy is a breast cancer survivor. (audience cheers)
This is Bianca. And she is from Sleepy Hollow, New York. She’s here with her mother and her sister. Bianca, first of all, congratulations on being a survivor. (audience cheers)
Thank you so much. Now how old are you? I’m 20, oh, I’m 25, my birthday was just on Sunday. Congratulations, another birthday. Thank you. How did you find out that you had breast cancer? Where were you, and how long ago was it? So my last year of college, I was in the shower doing a self-check, and I found a small lump in my breast. Oh my gosh.
Yeah. So my doctor said, “Just keep an eye on it”. I was only 21 years old. But after graduating, it had grown significantly, so I went back and we did some biopsies. To the same doctor?
Yeah. We did some biopsies, took some tests, and a week later we found out that I have breast cancer. Aw.
At 22 years old. Okay.
(audience murmurs) Yeah, so I had a double mastectomy, I went through treatment, ’cause I was not about to let cancer take me down. (audience cheers)
Yes. And then a year later, I did a full body scan and found out that there was no evidence of cancer in my body. Good for you.
(audience cheers) Boy, you deserve this diva fan. (Bianca laughs) Thank you.
And we also have, Bianca, for you, a $300 gift card. Thank you.
You can use that anywhere you want. Thank you. Congratulations again on being a survivor. And we will be back right after this message. (upbeat music)
