  8. What Would Whitney Do January 29, 2021

    She should have some white powder on the dress. Like the coke spilled cuz Wendy know

  9. Swifter2020 January 29, 2021

    Laverne C** should play Wendy so her look is more relatable to Wendy’s.

  10. IJS January 30, 2021

    It just sucks to be Wendy. Despite her success, money, and personal spin on her story, she still is a bitter, unhappy, & lonely person with no real friends or relationships. It’s very sad.
