More of the Worst Celebrity Feuds

"Iggy will twist my words," says Williams after coming to the rapper's defense.

They may have had beef in the past, but Wendy Williams is #TeamIggy when it comes to Iggy Azalea's feud with T.I.

On her show Friday morning, Williams sided with Azalea in the "Fancy" singer's battle with the fellow rapper, who said he was "still actively looking for another female rapper who can undo the blunder of Iggy Azalea." He added working with her was "the tarnish of my legacy as far as [being] a [music] executive is concerned. To me, this is like when Michael Jordan went to play baseball."

In a since-deleted tweet, the "Fancy" singer ripped into her former mentor, calling him a "misogynist." She added, "Imagine thinking I was his biggest blunder lmaooooooooo. Tip. Sweetie. We have a whole list for you."

Azalea later added and then deleted, "The tea I could spill on what bullshit this is but at the end of the day I think people can see it's clear he's salty. He's a huge misogynist and has never been able to have a conversation with any woman in which he doesn't speak like a fortune cookie."

Reacting to the feud today, Williams said, "Now hold on, that 'Fancy' song had everybody bopping. Also 'Black Widow,' everyone knew that ... and then that's it."

"He says she tarnished his legacy," Wendy continued. "T.I., all due respect, you're the one who did time for nefarious ways," she added, referring to his time behind bars for various drugs, weapons and parole violation offenses in the past. "Come on, T.I., she's not my favorite person, but you gotta give it up. That 'Fancy' and 'Black Widow' were good songs. She didn't tarnish your legacy, she helped keep you out here."

That being said, Williams still felt Azalea would "twist my words" to take offense, adding, "She'll be reading me for filth by the 10:00 news. I really don't care."

Back in September, Iggy came for Wendy on social media too.

The 55-year-old TV host threw shade on her show, commenting, "Who's the Australian girl with the fake body?"

And Azalea was quick to take to Twitter to respond as she posted "Who's the crack head in the half way house with the gossip show thing?" with a retweet of "Your breath stink from talking sh*t, you want a mint?"

Less than ten minutes later, Azalea added the stinging barb, "Wendy Williams is a walking mike Tyson tribal tattoo slapped over a deeply set c-section scar. I've had enough."

And in a since-deleted tweet, she wrote "You would have thought after crying publicly all summer, walking around in a wig that looks like it hasn't been brushed in a week, talking to papz clearly high as hell etc etc she would mind hers but her she is... baby!"

FYI: Wendy got her tattoo to cover a tummy tuck scar. "I don't particularly like that one, but I'd rather have that than the cut," she previously explained.
