Wendy Williams

Wendy Williams threw some shade Ellen DeGeneres’ way during Monday’s episode of her show, a day after losing at the People’s Choice Awards.

DeGeneres and Williams’ shows were both nominated for Favorite Daytime Talk Show of 2019, and DeGeneres walked away victorious. This was DeGeneres’ second consecutive win in the category.

“Congratulations Ellen, you won again. She’s the people’s choice… alright,” Williams said as she rolled her eyes, reports Radar Online.

DeGeneres previously won the award in 2017 and 2018. Her 2017 win marked her 20th at the People’s Choice Awards. She first won Favorite Talk Show Host in 2005, and repeated in the category in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011. The category was chanced to Favorite Daytime TV Host for 2012, and DeGeneres has that category every year through 2017. For 2018 and 2019, the award was changed again to Daytime Talk Show.

“If you want a polished interview and polished journalism, then you’re watching the wrong show,” Williams told Variety of her show in October. “If you want a good time, you better get into Wendy because you never know what’s going to happen. I don’t know what’s going to happen either — I passed out on TV and was revived during commercial break!”
