UPDATE at 8:49am PT on 3/29: In response to TooFab's article, Tatum tweeted: "I don't believe this at all. It was meant as a joke. But I should not have said it. I feel bad. I am all about empowering woman. Not happy about my words here. Should not have said them period. My bad." She also posted a series of tweets to Wendy Williams, apologizing for her remarks.
I sent a note to @WendyWilliams today. Before I I was aware that my off the cuff remarks were caught on air on a radio show I did yesterday. I am a Womans woman and I think now is the time for woman to be there for one another . Not tear each other down.
Cont . @WendyWilliams i was late because of what I was not able to properly articulate on the show because there was a procession on 5 th Ave for a fireman who had been killed the other day on Ed Norton's new movie in BK . I was hoping to talk to you about
Cont @WendyWilliams about the new move @GodsNotDeadFilm the film I am in . Not the book I put out in 2002 . There are plenty of YouTube Oprah interview's for that. I don't think you are crazy. I am a huge fan. We need to support each other . Love, T
Host Collins explained to O'Neal that Williams popping questions of the blue is something that regularly occurs on the "The Wendy Williams Show," in which O'Neal responded, "I did not know that, I have not watched enough Wendy Williams to know that she would not mention the film!" O'Neal appeared on Williams' morning talk show to promote her new film, "God's Not Dead: A Light In Darkness," or at least, that was the intent.
Although her interview might have been crazy, O'Neal did still express her concern for Williams. "I hope she's okay. I did worry about her when I left the show.”
