Why Wendy Williams has a problem with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

Wendy Williams has made a career out of sharing her unfiltered and often controversial opinion of Hollywood’s most famous faces. After spending years hosting syndicated radio show The Wendy Williams Experience, the shock jock brought her talents to daytime television.

Williams’ talk show The Wendy Williams Show was a national fixture on FOX networks when it premiered in 2008. However, the media personality shocked audiences when it was revealed that she would not be returning to her infamous purple chair due to a multitude of health issues. In response to the news, fans of the network took to social media to share some of their fondest memories of William’s career. “The best free speech moment of my life was Wendy Williams creating Dula Peep,” one fan tweeted.

And while Williams made several headlines during her stint as a TV personality, her brave stance on Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s split still comes as a huge shock.

Wendy Williams doesn’t feel guilty about Brangelina

Wendy Williams made their alliance clear when it came to Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston drama. In 2016, the media mogul joined Inside Edition to discuss trending stories, and she didn’t hold back when it came to discussing Pitt and Jolie’s divorce. “I’m Team Jen,” Williams told Deborah Norville. “I don’t feel sorry for these people, but I feel sorry for the children. I would hope that she would not prevent him from seeing his children.”

Williams doubled down on the former lovers during a 2020 episode of “The Wendy Williams Show.” After the news that Pitt and Aniston had a secret meeting at an Oscars after-party, the talk show host gushed over the couple and hit out before they should rekindle their romance. “Me, [Jennifer] and Brad are still meant to get back together,” Williams said (via The US Sun). “I just like her [together].”

Since then, Pitt and Jolie’s split has become even more messy. From allegations of assault to a row over the couple’s winery, Pitt and Jolie’s divorce has proven to be very tumultuous. Additionally, Rolling Stone co-founder Jann Wenner recently claimed that Jolie tipped off photographers in 2005, exposing the couple’s affair. Pitt was married to Aniston at the time.

Wendy Williams has never been a fan of Angelina Jolie

Wendy Williams has made no secret of her dismay at Angelina Jolie, and has lashed out at the actor on numerous occasions over the years. During a 2018 episode of “The Wendy Williams Show,” the pop culture commentator suggested Jolie was trying to manipulate the media. “So a lot of people think that Angelina Jolie is using the media as a secret weapon. I agree with that,” Williams said.

Williams went on to explain that Jolie — who was photographed in public with her children — intentionally took her children to well-known locations in hopes of being photographed by paparazzi. “I think she’s trotting these kids around to make us think she’s a good mom,” Williams added. The outspoken media personality called Jolie “unsympathetic” but made it very clear that she’s siding with Brad Pitt. “Brad will come out on top,” Williams said.

However, the former talk show host wasn’t always entirely critical of Jolie. When Pitt was spotted with Nicole Poturalski at the French chateau where he and Jolie got married, Williams changed her tune a bit. “I don’t know why he did that other than to be shady and mean to Angelina,” Williams said during her 2019 Hot Topics segment.
