Mona Scott-Young On Why Love & Hip Hop Is “Black Excellence” On Wendy Williams, Explains Jim Jones & Joseline Hernandez’s Return To Franchise
Wendy Williams and Mona Scott-Young had quite an interesting moment on “The Wendy Williams Show” Friday (Dec. 13). Mona Scott-Young was a guest on the show to promote the upcoming 10th season of VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: New York”, premiering Monday (Dec. 16).
But things went left after Mona Scott-Young said this is the year of return for Black people, and stated that she’s going to Africa this month. Wendy Williams said,
“Is that where we’re going?”
Scott-Young said that Wendy Williams needs to come too and Wendy Williams said,
“I work every day… I’ve got plans.”
When Scott-Young tried to convince her to come, Williams said,
“It’s not the destination, it’s mingling too close to the light.”
Things got even more awkward when Williams brought up that Scott-Young will often have cast members over her home. While Scott-Young said,
“They’re good humans,”
“Good for business… It’s okay.”
Williams also seemed shocked when Scott-Young referred to the show as Black excellence. Williams said, seemingly sarcastically,
“Uh-huh! We tune in to the Mona Scott shows for Black excellence. Excellence at its best.”
Scott-Young said we should salute the cast members for going through what many people couldn’t handle, especially in front of the cameras.
But Williams wasn’t persuaded.
“You’re doing big things, but at the cost of what?”
During her appearance, Scott-Young also explains Jim Jones and Chrissy Lampkin’s return to the series, along with Joseline Hernandez’s return to Love & Hip Hop: Miami.
See her appearance below.
Afterward, Scott-Young alluded to some of Williams’ negative remarks on her social media. See the photo and caption below.
