Wendy Williams was all set to attend Us Weekly’s Most Stylish New Yorkers party, but according to reports she canceled just hours before the event.
Sources say she decided not to go after discovering that Lil Iim would be honored during the evening’s festivities.
We’re told there had been much negotiation between the scandal-struck chat-show host’s team and the event’s organizers in the run-up to the big night, with Williams agreeing to appear in return for being included on the list.
And when her team told the tabloid on the morning of the event that she had to drop out because of a “scheduling conflict,” the stunned staff made a flurry of calls in an attempt to get her to change her mind.
Insiders say arrangements had already been made to make sure that Williams and Lil’ Kim — who have traded barbs about the rapper’s plastic surgery and Williams’ alleged fling with Kim’s ex, Biggie Smalls — weren’t seated close to each other at the event at Cathédrale at Moxy East Village.
Apparently, all the other honorees showed up as planned. They included La La Anthony, Coco Austin and Ice-T and Sara Haines.
