The unfortunate incident drew waves of sympathy for the 65-year-old, but not Wendy. Instead of showing concern for Christie, the talk show host accused her of faking her injury to give way to her daughter. She insinuated that Christie pre-meditated her exit from the dance competition so Sailor would have a shot at fame.
“What is it within you that is so dark that you can’t seem to get it out when the world shows you love, and wishes you well, on the rest of your journey of your life, you are so dark inside..."
Due to Wendy’s claims against Christie, she became the subject of discussion on “The Talk.” Hosts Sharon and Sheryl weighed in on her remarks and expressed their disbelief.
"From you fainting, from you going through your narcotics, God has given you a second chance. Do something with it.”
Sharon questions, “Why does she have to be so mean?” referring to Wendy’s comments against Christie. She then addresses Wendy directly in her next message.
“What is it within you that is so dark that you can’t seem to get it out when the world shows you love, and wishes you well, on the rest of your journey of your life, you are so dark inside, so mean constantly. People who have this anger, this nastiness inside them.”
Sheryl agreed with Sharon and added,
“Nobody said when she was going through the stuff she was going through that she was faking it. We all were worried about her health,” That being said, Sheryl advised Wendy, “don’t go back to what you used to be.”
“God has gave you a second chance. Don’t do this, don’t do this. We love Wendy Williams and we thought you were gonna come back around as another person.”
She further reiterated her point when she said,
“Don’t go back to who you used to be. From you fainting, from you going through your narcotics, God has given you a second chance. Do something with it.”
Christie was surprised to learn about Wendy’s comments considering she thought they were friends.
"My message to Wendy is, it's so much more fun to be kind. Try it."
“I’ve been on Wendy’s show a couple of times, and for some reason she liked me, and she would call on me to support her in tough times,” she revealed on “The Talk” following her Wendy’s claims.
At first she thought “it was a mistake” due to their amicable history but when she learned it was true, Christie had a message for Wendy.
"My message to Wendy is, it's so much more fun to be kind. Try it. It can't feel good to try to hurt other people. If it feels good, something's seriously wrong."
Christie showed how severe her injuries were by sharing the results of her x-rays. She said she “didn’t just break” her bones in her arm, they were “shattered.” In fact, it took three hours of surgery to repair them.
Christie tried to be positive after her exit on her show and even joked about it on “Good Morning America.” She said, “Sailor joined the cast when I got mine.”
She also expressed her intention to call Wendy when she spoke to People after the controversy erupted. It’s unclear if the two have talked since then.
