Talk about news traveling fast on the World Wide Web, as it was just Saturday night, Jan. 23 when “Hollywood Diva’s” Lisa Wu was photographed on the red carpet at her birthday party with radio personality veteran and hip-hopper Big Tigger. From all the write-ups and blogs that created their own story about the photograph captured from the IG of @Messy_boots posted the next morning around 7 a.m., led to the big question of whether Lisa Wu and Big Tigger had swapped exes or were simply being messy? Most didn’t mention or know that Big TIgger attended the party with Grammy-Award winning singer-songwriter and Trumpet Award recipient Ne-Yo, who appeared to be cut out of the original photo taken on the red carpet.
Social media writers, editors, the people on Twitter and numerous journalists took a couple photos and gave it a life and story of its own. This story went viral within less than 24 hours and the subject matter landed on hot topics Monday morning (less than 72 hours later) where Wendy Williams, the queen of daytime talk-show, addressed her thoughts on the photos to her audience by commenting on the fact once upon a time Lisa Wu, Keshia Knight Pulliam and Big Tigger were all friends. In Wendy’s opinion she didn’t think it looked like a couples picture but rather they were just taking photos.
But Williams did admit she could see how Lisa Wu could be upset and also Big Tigger because of the fact they were all friends at some point. Also, In Atlanta heterosexual men are slim pickens so her thoughts is there is probably a lot of overlapping of friends that are married to or dating exes. Williams thinks maybe the picture could have been a little more staged like they could have at least posed like they like each other and the picture denotes they are just friends. You know Williams is the expert on body language in photos. However, Williams feels that if they were really friends that Ed Hartwell and Keshia Knight Pulliam should move out of Atlanta immediately.
Wendy claims, “Big TIgger is on the warpath and so is Lisa Wu and I don’t blame either one of them.”
