Joseline Hernandez Responds To Candiace Dillard Bassett's Comments About Her Wendy Williams Appearance

Joseline Hernandez's recent appearance on The Wendy Williams Show is still a hot topic. The Puerto Rican princess appeared on the show to promote the second season of her Zeus reality show, Joseline’s Cabaret.

While Hernandez has been a guest on Wendy’s purple sofa before and Williams is an admitted fan of Hernandez, the interaction between the two women this time around was less than stellar.

Before Williams could even get into her line of questioning, Hernandez started swinging, complaining to Williams that she’s too hard on young women of color and should spend more time giving them their “flowers” by uplifting them instead of criticizing them on Hot Topics. 

“I have the number one show in the country,” Hernandez proceeded to tell Williams of why she deserved validation.

“You have the number one show on Zeus and you just got renewed for a third season, which is to be commended,” Williams tried to interject. But Hernandez didn’t stop, despite Williams’ attempt to get her to move forward with the interview.

Hernandez told Williams that she needs to “do better,” throwing shade at Williams’ relationship with her ex-husband Kevin Hunter simultaneously.

“We love you but at the same time, you have to do better,” Hernandez shot back. “You’re not in an abusive relationship anymore.”

By the end of the interview, the two appeared to make peace, with Williams reiterating that she’s a fan. But it’s less likely that Hernandez will be invited back to the show anytime soon...or ever.

The Real Housewives of Potomac star Candiace Dillard Bassett was no fan of Hernandez’s behavior. She took to Instagram live to scold Hernandez for such. She says Hernandez, like all other fans of Williams, already are aware of Williams’ interview tactics. She did say she could relate to Hernandez feeling scolded, as Williams was harsh on Dillard Bassett over her part in the fight with Monique Samuels. Still, Dillard Bassett says Hernandez should have better handled herself.

Of course, Hernandez wasted no time responding, writing under Dillard Bassett’s Instagram video, “You mean to tell me a face full of makeup just to say this? Paid 300 just to talk about me. Girl mind your business. Big Bank take little bank, including taking Wendy’s.” Dillard Bassett responded with several sarcastic emojis.
