Video of Rutina Wesley on the Wendy Williams Show

Rutina Wesley appeared today on the ‘The Wendy Williams Show’, where she chatted with Wendy about her role on True Blood. She also discussed the identity mix-up at this year’s Emmy-awards. Regina King was confused for Rutina, and King was so offended that she fired off an open letter blasting the Emmy people.

Rutina commented: “It’s funny to me that we would be mixed up, as we look nothing alike. It’s a Hollywood thing, though, and people need to be very careful of that.” Wendy added: “We as black people say ‘we don’t all look alike’.”

    How can Rutina be confused with anyone else? Ridiculous!

    I read Regina’s letter and she was right! Rutina and Regina look nothing alike, no features , not even skin tone. I think that was a very unfortunate incident. Rutina looks lovely as always!

    Unfortunately most entertainment reporters are idiots. They often mistake or misidentify celebs of all races. Not to mention reporting info that is erroneously stated as fact. Consider the source.
