Wendy Williams gets a lot of slack for spilling celebrity gossip and some call it bullying. Williams once created a chart revealing all five mothers of rapper Future's children. The rapper was so furious that he retaliated and called Williams out on social media. Her critics thought she was completely out of line and went too far.

But Williams is a treasure, and she's the only black woman hosting her own daytime talk show. Like any media personality, she has a tough job, but has set the stage for celebrity gossip and has inspired countless other entertainment shows. Essence says she has perfected the act of spilling tea: 

As a 54-year-old Black woman—an age she doesn’t shy away from—with more than 30 years of experience in the industry, she didn’t just serve tea; she practically helped invent it. Williams’s brand of fabulous news and entertainment helped to usher in a new era of urban celebrity gossip, which caused her to butt heads with Hollywood’s biggest stars. Williams booked guests who would otherwise never have had exposure on daytime TV, from Bobby Brown and The Real Housewives of wherever to rappers who never quite made it to the mainstream. Still, this only created more of a thirst for her voice.
