Wendy Ho On Jennifer Coolidge Spoof


New York-based singer-comedian Wendy Ho posted The Advocate's interview with Jennifer Coolidge on her Facebook page, thanking the actress for finally acknowledging that her guest appearance on Nip/Tuck was inspired by Ho's act.

"Yay! Jennifer Coolidge finally acknowledges 'Yo Stank!' was a 'commentary' on MY ASS!" Wendy Ho wrote.

On the show Coolidge played a white rapper named Hot Coco who undergoes plastic surgery to get a a bigger butt. Coolidge filmed a fake music video for her character's single, "Yo Stank!"

"Well, it was supposed to be a whole commentary on Wendy Ho," Coolidge said. "I know all about Wendy Ho. Wendy Ho's album is called The Gospel According to Ho, and the album in the Hot Coco video was called The Gospel According to Coco, so they had every intention of acknowledging Wendy Ho. They showed me the Wendy Ho video before we did it and said, 'Do a funny version of this.' I was like, 'I'm not going to be cooler than Wendy Ho, that's for sure.' Wendy Ho is about as cool as it gets. I'd never seen anything like her."

Wendy Ho says that while she's glad to finally be acknowledged, her attempt to get credit from the show's producers went nowhere. She says she consulted with lawyers to see if she could sue.

"I tried, TRUST," she wrote on Facebook. "Unfortunately this kind of shit is legal -- and happens ALL THE TIME! Biting bitches!!! Only one ho!"
