Marlon Wayans and More Black Celebs Defend Kelly Rowland’s Professionalism After White Reality Star’s Criticism

Hollywood Unlocked posted several videos of former “Real Housewives of New York” star Bethenny Frankel on her Instagram profile, criticizing Rowland after Page Six reported last week that the singer left NBC’s “Today” show due to a small dressing room. The Skinnygirl entrepreneur was “disgusted” at the chart-topper’s last-minute decision to leave Hoda Kotb hanging, suggesting that Rowland and her team should have gracefully accepted the modest accommodations, noting that even Kotb and Bush Hager are fine with their small rooms. Fans and friends were quick to come to Kelly’s defense, including her former Destiny’s Child bandmate, Latavia Roberson and Marlon Waynes, who stated: “Yall stop with these false narratives. I’ve worked with @kellyrowland as a Star/producer i [sic] will honestly say she was nothing short of AMAZING,” the comedian wrote on his Instagram. “Sweet, kind, professional. On time, great energy, impeccable manners and professionalism. She was nice to EVERYONE on set. Not one diva moment.”

Did Kelly do the right thing by leaving the TODAY show? Why?
