Wendy Williams Mispronounces Nicole Scherzinger Name: 'Scherzingberger'

Posted by Matt Ryan on

Wendy Williams, who is no stranger to mispronouncing names, just committed the same mistake with Nicole Scherzinger.

Wendy couldn't pronounce the Pussycat Dolls singer's name during The Wendy Williams Show, overcomplicating it by adding "berger" to the end of her name. That's right – she called her Nicole Scherzingberger (or is it Schershingberger?). Watch a clip and hear it for yourself below.



Remember, this is the same talk show host who said "Dula Peep" instead of Dua Lipa. Despite talking about celebrities and pop culture every day, she can't keep her pronunciations straight!

The reactions to Wendy's mistake were mixed. While some found it to be a funny Wendy-ism, others thought it's insulting to Nicole, who's even been on the show previously. And in fact, Wendy has been saying Nicole's name wrong for years, according to these tweets!







We got a good laugh about it, and wonder if Wendy is even being serious at this point. Either way, it's all innocent fun, right?!
