(Audience cheering and clapping) Welcome back! It’s time for another edition of Hot Talk. Joining me is the host of Michelle Collins’ show, which I listen to daily.
You’re kidding! No
Wendy! Thank you. I check you out.
This is the biggest honor. I mean, thank you.
On Sirius XM, it’s Michelle Collins.
(Audience ovation) And from Hot 97 radio here in New York, Give it up for TT Torrez.
Hi Wendy! (Audience ovation)
And welcome back the author of the book “Nobody”. Please say hello to doctor, doctor, doctor darling. Lamont Hill. Good to see you, always.
Alright let’s get started! Alright, so there’s a newspaper, the new paper magazine, excuse me. Have you seen it? With Amanda Bynes on the front. She admits that drugs let her down a dirty, dirty path and a break down back in 2013, but she says she’s sober now and she wants back in show biz. Yeah
What do you think? I think this is a terrible idea. Do you?
Yes. She’s 31, she went to fashion school, she is working on fashions. What do you think?
I’m happy to see her back and thriving. I think she looks gorgeous on the cover. I think we all love Amanda Bynes. And the truth is, she’s a talented girl. I think Americans are very excited and eager to welcome someone back. Look at Britney. She had her meltdown, never forget bald Britney and there she is.
But Britney is still under conservative ship. She’s still not all together.
All the way back. But she looks good, she’s touring And Amanda,
Making money Amanda is still under conservative ship too. There you go.
But look at Lindsay Lohan. She never really came back.
Yeah, but Lindsay has some other issues.
Yeah, but I’d say Lindsay wouldn’t come back even if she weren’t in the show biz. (Audience laughing)
But she wants to come back. She’s gotta have people all around her that is going to tell her the truth, that she is going to listen to and hold her accountable. Because you can be back, right? But what comes with that? The parties, the drugs, the movies, the scripts, the insecurities.
But where is she going to work? She can’t work at Nordstrom Rack, or like Cardiff. She has to get a job in show business
And they do coke at Nordstrom Rack too
Work on your fashion line My Favorite store for the record, but you know what I mean? Like what? Lamont, what do you think? I agree with you.
Marc, I mean. It’s fine. I think that no matter where you go, you have to deal with those demons, you have to deal with these vices. Let her pursue her dream. Hollywood loves a second chance. Just go do it, but just make sure you make good choices. I know plenty people in Hollywood, I am sure y’all do too, who don’t go to all the parties, who don’t do drugs after work. I am never invited, but I will tell you that like I love party so.
Neither am I, don’t worry. Have you ever heard of “black fishing”? (TT let out a heavy sigh)
Okay, look! There’s a model, or an Instagram person. Her name is Emma Hallberg. And she has been accused of black fishing. That’s pretending to be black. (Audience lets out a cry of stupor) Well someone recently outed her by posting this picture. (Audience sounds surprised)
She actually looks better black.
That’s right Ted. She looks better black.
Her highlight is popping as a black girl. I like it.
Well, they say that she is making money from brands marketing towards black girls.
An influencer. Yeah! She’s an influencer.
I see why. She denies everything. Take a look. I cannot change the way I was born because the things I have been accused of and the things people are mad about are things that are natural in me. Like my hair, my lips my nose, my face. I’ve never claimed to be black or bi-racial or anything else than white. Let me tell you those lips are not real, so imma need her to stop.
Exactly. And the body, the body is…
Ain’t none of it real. Ain’t none of that real. I have an issue with this. I have an issue. So there’s a long history in this country of people doing black face. We get mad when white people do it at Halloween. We used to get mad at doing Jim Crow. This isn’t just black face 2.0, she is just making money off of it instead of entertaining fools. And that’s not right. No, it’s not.
But the Kardashians have kind of made it cool to do this. Look at Kylie Jenner. Look how she puckered up her lips and The body
The cornrows, But you know what?
The bodies This is the whole skin, I mean look, this is just ridiculous.
Come on, cornrows? Listen, as the white girl on the panel may I just say, when I go to get spray tanned, there is a limit. I always say, don’t take me full slumdog. You have to know that dark, like look at Luann got into the whole controversy when she was Diana Ross cause her spray tan was too dark. There is a limit to what is tasteful and tactful, and what, borderline, sounds racist. And you’re lying
And I think she passes it. But you’re a grown woman. She’s only 19, or 18. So her age group, the white girls are still gonna you know, buy her stuff. The brands are still going to flock to her. She’ll still make more money than ever, because now we’re talking about it, people have been talking about it. She is getting a lot of heat, you know what I mean? And, there are some black girls I’m sure, who’ll follow her as well, still. This is wrong. But here’s the thing. Being black is cool now until you get stopped by the police. I bet. Exactly.
She might be the only black woman in Sweden. Truly. So, the show Storage Wars, we talked about this the other day on Hot Topics. There was 7.5 million dollars found in a newly purchased unit. (Audience gasping)
The original owner wanted all the money back. He demanded it. And offered some sort of pittance to the actual buyer of the unit. TT, would you give the money back? Absolutely not. It is mine. If you had all this money hidden in the storage, how come you did not pay the bill? Yep
I’m not giving anything back See? That why I’m giving it back. (Audience screaming in shock)
Why? Calm down! Listen! See, everybody in the hood like Get out! Get out!
What you talking about? But see, if you’re from the hood, you understand that anybody that would leave 7 million dollars in a safe and couldn’t go back to get it probably tied up in something that you don’t want to be tied up in. And you don’t want that smoke when he comes back for the seven and a half million dollars. I will remain anonymous. They wouldn’t know who I am and I would never show my face. And what I don’t know won’t hurt me.
Let me tell you first of all,
Don’t tell me where the money came from. Doesn’t this have judge Judy written all over it? Judge Judy would have given every penny to the person who bought the unit, because I want to meet the guy who forgot seven and a half million. Who he?
Yes Who He?
I’m trying to tell you. That’s my man right there.
He did not forget. Ain’t no body forget seven, Bill Gates ain’t forgetting seven and a half million dollars. He couldn’t get to the seven and half million dollars cause he was doing seven and a half year somewhere, but when he come home, he’s coming for you. He still sends hi.
I love an ex- con. You ain’t that safe.
I would definitely, I will keep all the money, but the guy ended up giving the money back a for one point, I think five million dollar reward.
That’s good! But it’s free money
Whatever. 1.2 I would take it. I don’t know. Alright! So, there’s a woman, everyone, who wants to trade babies with a stranger. We’ll break that down next as Hot talk continues. We’ll be back! We are back with the Hot Talk panel! There’s a woman desperate to have a son. She’s got one more frozen embryo and it’s a girl. (Audience sounds shocked)
So she wants to trade embryos with a stranger to have the boy. TT, how do you feel about that? Listen, I have a eight year-old son. My husband wants another baby. He really wants a girl. I said listen, let’s try the natural way, whatever we are blessed with, that’s what it’s gonna be. I cannot switch, swap a baby like it’s, like I’m knocking on the door for some sugar. Like, who does that?
I am like you and I agree, but I have to tell you, there are two consenting adults. If they both agree to do it, I think it creates a lot of problem, to the kids as well once they’re grown.
Exactly! But it’s not my life. So I’m like if they’re comfortable doing that with each other and it’s not illegal, they can do it. I think it’s a mistake
Let me ask you a question. What if both women were pregnant, and they say “you know what? Let’s swap babies as soon as they’re born”?
(Audience cries in disbelief) It’s the same principle, right? That’s you kid
Hold on a minute! I’m not doing it. I’m just saying No, but would you be okay if they did that? I still don’t like any of it I don’t love it.
What do you explain to the kid when they are like 16 and they have answers and I don’t look like you mami, and I don’t look like you daddy. How do you explain that?
In it’s own way, right? I wanted to have a boy, and so your mother is somebody that we don’t know. Typically it’s an adoption. It’s just, the parents are agreeing to mutually adopt each other’s kids. I just think they should out and adopt a kid. There are so many kids who need homes. I watch, you know, I watch Long Lost Family. Wendy I don’t know if you watch the show, it’s fabulous! But you see these adopted kids that grew up in beautiful homes. I don’t know, I do think it’s selfish.
That’s a great idea! If you want a boy that bad, it’s not going to be yours anyway biologically, so go adopt one. That’s good! I think it’s selfish for the parents and when the kids grow up, there’s going to be problems. I agree with you.
A lot of emotion problems. Well, my thoughts on designer babies are just (Wendy makes a fart sound)
any way. I don’t like it. If you can’t do it the in and out way, then do the in vitro. Then get the in vitro shot or something like that.
Go on tinder But yeah!
Because there are also women who cannot have a baby the natural way and so in vitro is needed, but the switching up the… No, I’m not with it.
There’s a gender piece to it too because optimally, you kid is going to grow up feeling like “mommy didn’t want me because I was a girl”.
Yes! And that’s a problem.
Exactly! Alright panelists, thank you so much for being here. If you want information on the panelists, go to wendyshow.com. Ask Wendy is next! (Woman singing on an upbeat electro melody)
