rachel lindsay has survived the Reality TV wrath of Wendy Williams. The Bachelorettestar was unceremoniously grilled by the outspoken talk show host during an appearance on Williams’ syndicated chatfest. While she was Wendy Williams’ guest, Rachel was called out for not representing the African- American woman in a positive way and accused of looking for reality TV fame instead of love.

From law school to love connection

Celebrity site Jezebel posted a clip of Rachel’s “Wendy Williams Show” sit-down in which the talk show queen called out the Dallas attorney for going on "The Bachelorette." Rachel comes from a prestigious family (her father is a federal judge), so Wendy questioned why she went to law school only to put her law career on hold to find her future husband on a reality show.

Rachel Lindsay defended herself, saying she took the opportunity to represent herself as an African-American woman in a positive way as she looked for love on the hit reality TV franchise. Wendy bluntly told Rachel that she “had a chance to be on TV and in every magazine.” Wendy also said she doesn’t believe it is possible to find love on reality TV and she called Rachel on the carpet, telling the 31-year-old beauty she is smarter than that.

Rachel held true to her love story and told Wendy she has an open invitation to her wedding to Dr. Bryan Abasolo. The reality star vowed to turn the skeptical talk show host into a believer.

Desperate housewife?

According to USA Today, Wendy Williams barely stopped short of calling Rachel Lindsay "desperate” for an engagement after she broke things off with Peter Kraus after he refused to propose to her after two months of dating.

Lindsay admitted that she wanted to walk away from “The Bachelorette" as an engaged woman. Wendy also joked that Dr. Bryan is a chiropractor but that cardiologists make much better money, implying that Rachel Lindsay settled.

Wendy Williams is known for her no-holds-barred interviews, but her interview with Rachel Lindsay was downright snarky and rude.

It will be interesting to see if Rachel and Bryan opt for a televised wedding on ABC’s dime and if Wendy Williams will be sitting in the front row.

It’s not surprising that Wendy Williams isn’t buying Rachel Lindsay’s love story. Most engaged couples on the ABC reality show never make it down the aisle, so if Rachel and Bryan do, they will beat the odds.

The next cycle of “The Bachelor” franchise will air starting in January on ABC.
