Wendy: Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony Divorce a PR Stunt

Wendy Williams -- who's enjoying an extended summer vacation from her talk -- made her first appearance on The View this morning and we sensed some shade from one of the co-hosts. Anywho, before they delved into the who-are-you-where-do-you-come-from-and-why-are-you-here conversation, the co-hosts wanted to know her take on last weekend's bombshell announcement from Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony that they've decided to divorce after seven years of marriage. Suffice it to say, Wendy thinks Jennifer is (or, should we say, some unnamed people in Hollywood are) "addicted to fame" and the announcement is just a publicity stunt because Jennifer is no longer in the spotlight. Awkward. Wendy has said she's not a proponent of lavish wedding ceremonies, to which Sherri Shepherd took offense. (Sidebar: We are so sick of Sherri talking about her darn wedding! It's like Star "I'm a Lawyer" Jones all over again.)

Wendy was really on the show to promote her "Say It Like You Mean It Summer Tour" -- a 17-city-tour with the sole purpose of drawing viewers to her show, which is not doing well in the ratings. The tour kicks off in Miami on August 4 then winds up in Sacramento on Sept. 1. [ August 4, Miami; August 5, Tampa; August 8, Charleston, SC; August 9, Charlotte, NC; August 11, St. Louis; August 12, Cincinnati; August 16, Austin; August 17, Houston; August 19, Memphis; August 20, Birmingham, Ala.; August 24, Chicago; August 25, Milwaukee; August 26, Minneapolis; August 30, Los Angeles; August 31, San Diego; Sept. 1, Sacramento. She'll also stop on Boston, but we don't yet know the date.] Season three of her talk show premiers Sept. 12.

Watch the interview.
