Wendy Williams Defends Michelle Obama From 'Angry Black Woman' Stereotype (VIDEO)

"The Wendy Williams Show" (weekdays on Fox) doesn't usually get political, but when Williams heard that Michelle Obama was defending herself against being described as "an angry black woman," she sprang to the First Lady's defense. "If you're a black woman and you have something to say and you say it like you mean it, everybody portrays us ... as an angry black woman," Williams said.

Williams then pointed out that a somewhat similar critique was leveled at another smart, powerful First Lady, Hillary Clinton, who Williams remembered was called an "angry lesbian woman" by her detractors. "As soon as you get a little strong, then okay, you're a lesbian," Williams lamented.

To inject some much-needed levity into the discussion, Williams concluded the segment by providing an example of someone she believes actually lives up to the stereotype, and played a clip of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star NeNe Leakes berating Star Jones on "The Celebrity Apprentice."
