Wendy Williams is calling Rachel Roy and Beyoncé's Lemonade bluff

Wendy Williams isn't interested in Beyoncé's lemonade stand. She's convinced that Beyoncé and Jay Z are exploiting a fake extramarital affair to boost album sales — and his supposed mistress Rachel Roy is in on the scam.

While hosts nationwide were bowing down to Beyoncé's visual album, Williams was dealing in conspiracy theories on this morning's episode of The Wendy Williams Show.

"So Rachel Roy, first of all, you're not this fighting girl," said Williams. "Unless you're on Jay Z and Beyoncé's payroll, and they pay you to mix it up for I guess sales for the Lemonade."

Rachel Roy has stopped fighting — she's made her Instagram private and posted on Twitter calling out online bullying.

If there's one lesson we learned from Lemonade, it's clear that Beyoncé isn't afraid to take matters into her own hands. If she wants to put Rachel Roy on her payroll, you can bet damn sure she'll do it and give the girl a great healthcare package while she's at it. But chances are she doesn't need to put her husband's alleged mistress on her staff to sell an album — this is Beyoncé we're talking about.

Wendy Williams has some other semi-sensical thoughts about Lemonade.

"Quite frankly, I wish Beyoncé had held off on the album after Prince. Like, the weekend had blown over. And Bill Cosby, don't get beside yourself. Long after Prince is gone, and Beyoncé and Jay Z are still together, we are going to circle back around and still deal with you."
