Today on WBLS 107.5 (NYC) Wendy Williams (“The Wendy Williams Experience”) was mentioning the story about how Irv Gotti admitted to the “Glitter” sabotage. She said that the story is getting a lot of press and then stated that she too was asked by Tommy Mottola about a year ago to sabotage Mariah. She didn’t give much details (she is saving those for her book that she is writing) but did say that there was a “large sum of money at the end of that phone conversation–in the 5-digit area”
Basically what she alluded to was that Tommy tried to offer Wendy money to say false rumors on-air to damage Mariah’s reputation. She said he went as far as saying that she wouldn’t have to do anything but talk, that he would supply all the fuel and false stories. She declined the money and hung up the phone.
As you may be aware, Wendy’s radio show is the most listened to afternoon radio program in NY and can be heard around the country in syndication. Having Wendy trash Mariah would have reached the masses.
