Angie Martinez Opens up About Physical Altercation with Wendy Williams

Angie Martinez has a new book out, and in the book she opens up about her start in the radio business.

She even gave details about  getting into a physical altercation with Wendy Williams because she wasn’t happy about some of the comments Wendy made about her relationship with rapper Q-Tip.

Essence writes:

Martinez recently released her memoir, My Voice: A Memoir, which includes stories about her personal life, her wildest interviews, and how she became known as the Voice of New York.

The book includes stories about interviewing Tupac right before he died, knowing major artists before they were famous, and hating Puff Daddy. She also talks about the time that she got into a fight with Wendy Williams, which started when Martinez found out that Williams was making comments about her relationship with Q-Tip.

Williams had talked about their relationship on her website writing, “One of my co-workers is dating Q-Tip from A Tribe Called Quest. Oh well. I guess some women like men who like men.” Martinez said, “Everybody was gay to Wendy. Every rapper you could think of in that era, I had heard Wendy Williams call them gay. Not one or two. Like every one of them.” Martinez confronted Williams about the comments and soon things escalated. “I lost my f–king mind. Before I knew it I was swinging at her. It was a quick scuffle. It took only a few seconds for me to realize that she wasn’t really hitting me back — she was just trying to get me off of her.”

A co-worker stepped in to break up the fight, which gave Williams a chance to grab a mop to try to defend herself, “She just stood there with it like she wanted to have some sort of sword fight or something. It was actually kind of funny, even in the moment.” Now, for Martinez, it’s all water under the bridge. She admits that sometimes she watches Williams’ show and laughs, saying, “She has really mastered her lane. I find myself watching and laughing out loud. I don’t have any ill feelings toward her.”

  1. So with all that mouth Wendy’s big a-s has, she ain’t got no hands? Lmao I’m not surprised. She’s lucky she didn’t get her a-s whooped daily with all the sh-t she talks.

  2. LOL that does sound funny and I am not surprised. Those with the most mouth always got shyt to say and CAN’T back it up. But yeah I remember WW said Puffy was gay the dude that use to hold the un tell for Diddy was his boo….he wanted to beat her a$$ and get her fired. Ludacris, LL Cool J, Busta Rhymes….that’s all I can remember about the suppose gay rappers…then she said that Halle and Beyonce can’t screw in bed cause they are too beautiful so they just probably lay there….LMao She spoke a lot of shyt but it was entertaining

  3. Wendy reports what people want to hear and people keep tuning in. I dont think it makes her evil. She just giving the people what they want it else she wouldn’t have landes this long. If ahe faught everyone she talked about she would be in the hospital by now

    1. Yeah I disagree. Being nasty and picking on people for a living is evil. The only people she’s giving what they want to is people who are just as nasty, bitter and hateful as she is. She will never be Oprah because she doesn’t deserve to be. There’s a reason Oprah is a billionaire and Wendy will never be! And outside of her talk show, Wendy is miserable! And that’s because she spends most of her day picking on people.

  4. Wendy was wreckless during her heyday on the radio, especially on Hot 97. I remember she said Tupac got raped while he was in jail back in ’95. I also remember her on the radio talking about how Total from bad boy waited for her outside the radio station to jump her. She said the whole radio knew what was about to go down and no one warned her lmfao.
