The talk show host attempted to backtrack her comments about Beyonce on her own show but the damage was already done.

Wendy Williams just landed herself in hot water with Beyonce Knowles' fans. The talk show host had some harsh words for Beyonce while discussing the singer's newly-released trailer for the HBO documentary on her Thursday, December 6 show.

Wendy began with a statement that she is a fan of Beyonce. And then she said, "I'm gonna watch her upcoming documentary, because fortunately one of the TVs in our kitchen has closed captioning, so I'll be able to understand what she says. You know Beyonce can't talk. She sounds like she has a fifth grade education. She can't talk. Honestly."

Her studio audience immediately booed at Wendy, prompting her to defend herself. "Excuse me, I just said I was a fan. But we have to call a spade a spade," she said in her attempt to backtrack her comment.

Beyonce's documentary, which she will direct herself, is slated to air February 16, 2013. It contains concert footage and some personal interviews with the diva. "Everybody knows Beyonce's music, but few know Beyonce the person," said Michael Lombardo, HBO president of programming, in a statement about the film. "Along with electrifying footage of Beyonce onstage, this unique special looks beyond the glamour to reveal a vibrant, vulnerable, unforgettable woman."

Wendy Williams is known for saying thing that she shouldn't. There is journalism, and then there is ignorance. Wendy talks like she only made it through 5th grade and yet they still let her talk on national television why not the Beautiful B at least you can look at Beyoncé without wondering where she is hiding that Adams Apple. The last time she came out her face with some crap like that she lost her job on the radio, how this ridiculous TV show lasted this long is surprising.

Wendy Williams was indeed classless to make such an awful statement. She would be fortunate to have just a quarter of the talent that Beyonce has........clearly she doesn't...so she should stick to "talking loud and saying nothing"!

Wendy just said what everyone was thinking. Beyonce is a entertainer not an intellectual. Did she graduate from High School?

Wendy Williams is a classless talk show host. He/she need to take a look in the mirror.
