According to reports, Holly Robinson Peete is not happy with Wendy Williams for comments the daytime talk queen made about her reality show.

During Friday’s edition of Hot Topics, Wendy was discussing the rumors of Victoria Beckham and David Beckham possibly getting a reality show. She argued that it wasn’t the best idea because the “bar has been set so high” and people “like to see dysfunction and fighting and discourse.”
She then brought up Holly’s newest reality show titled For Peete’s Sake. For better or for worse, Wendy may not be the biggest fan of the new series.
“Holly, Rodney, You know I love you Peetes. I tried but I got to tell you something. There’s no place on TV anywhere it seems for shows like this,” she explained. “The bar has been risen. Ms. Peete is 80 years old, she’s dating, she’s cute but nobody cares.”
“Holly’s got the cute kids with Rodney. They’ve been married forever, but I don’t think people care,” she continued. “That’s sad for us, for TV watchers. Not for people who try to keep it together and be family and be good examples. That’s all.”
After hearing of the discussion, Holly went to social media where she expressed how proud she was of her reality show featured on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
“Dear @WendyWilliams #ForPeetesSake is resonating deeply esp w special needs #autism families. I know positivity isn’t ur thing but it’s OK,” she tweeted. “If u think #ForPeetesSake’s only abt cute kids n 80 yr mom dating then u didn’t watch it. spraying #shade repellent on U.”
She cryptically added, “When negative people try to pointlessly attack your positivity it’s only a sad commentary on their own inner darkness. Amen? #ForPeetesSake.”
