Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta OG Joseline Hernandez was invited to be a virtual guest at The Wendy Williams Show on Wednesday to discuss season 2 of her hit Zeus Network show, Joseline’s Cabaret. But things took an awkward turn for the worst when Hernandez wasted no time going in on the talk show host, claiming she hates on a younger generation of women.
The viral video clip started with Wendy Williams welcoming her but also mentioned, “For some reason, I wouldn’t recognize you if I saw you. You look different every time I see you….in a good way!”
Unsure whether Williams offered an innocent comment or if she was trying to shade her, Hernandez set the tone for the rest of the interview, clapping back, “Hopefully it’s in a good way Ms. Wendy, ‘cus you know…Ms. Wendy, I must say this to you first: I hope you’re going to give me my flowers today.”
A stunned Williams listened as the Puerto Rican Princess continued to air her grievances.
“I’m an accomplished woman, and I just feel like every time I come to your show, you don’t give me those flowers now. And Wendy, you’re 35 years my senior.”
Speaking her piece on the daytime talk show host’s disdain for younger women, Hernandez stated, “We feel like you be trying us. We feel like you don’t be really rooting for us.”
Though she tried to refute it and explain that she covers all pop culture-related topics, Hernandez remained steadfast in her claims that Williams, 56, is simply disrespectful to younger women on her show.
Fed up with all the “flower” talk, Williams picked up a flower mid-way through the squabble and threw it, saying, “There’s a flower, I just gave you flowers!”
The two ladies were surprisingly able to get on with the rest of the interview. Williams asked the reality show personality about her boyfriend and four-year-old daughter, Bonnie Bella, as the segment wrapped up.
But the on-air drama had already taken a life of its own, with social media users weighing in on Hernandez’s epic read session.
“Joseline went on Wendy this morning and chose violence, omg,” a fan joked on Twitter.

Another Twitter user defended Hernandez’s claims, writing, “If you saw how badly and shady Wendy was to Joseline on [their] last interview while Joseline was being honest and sweet, you would know that Wendy had this coming for a long time to this interview,”

Though many viewers agree that Hernandez “spoke facts” on the show, we’re not sure she’ll be invited back any time soon.
