The 80-year-old legendary crooner has been making headlines for weeks for her active, humorous Twitter usage, even leading to hot collaborations and a SNL skit – and now her niece is addressing if it’s really her.

“She doesn’t really ask me anything. She just does it herself. She’s making me say ‘DW Team’ on tweets I send because she’s sick of people asking if it’s really her doing it,” she revealed.

Aunt Dionne is very much the kind of person that has quick inquisitive thoughts. She’ll tell you in a heartbeat that she’s nosy. She’s always wondering things. I managed her social for a long time for her tours and things like that. But in this pandemic, I thought it might be good for her to jump on and just be herself and Twitter was the place to do that!” she continued.

Brittani works as co-president of Web Net 1, a digital presence agency, and has worked as Dionne‘s social and branding director for years.

Dionne is one of my clients and she just happens to be my aunt as well. The great thing about Aunt Dionne is she brings such joy just by being herself, even if she’s being very firm and stern with you, it’s through love,” she continued.

Dionne Warwick Slams Wendy Williams for Talking About Her Tweets & Referencing 2002 Marijuana Charges

Dionne Warwick has a bone to pick with Wendy Williams.

It all started earlier this week when Wendy chatted about Dionne‘s recent Twitter activities, and talked about how the 79-year-old singer doesn’t like her.

“She doesn’t like me though, I know she doesn’t like me,” Wendy said on her show. “She’s been here. She’s a friend to the show. She’s a friend to the show ’cause she has something to promote and we’re the social influencers and she’s smart.”

“But, once she gets off the show, you know she’s probably like, ‘Bitch,’” Wendy continued. “It’s okay, Ms. Warwick, it’s okay.”

Wendy then switched up her tone, and brought up how in 2002 Dionne faced marijuana charges, and suggested that she still smokes today. During an interview with Billboard Dionne claimed she was framed.

“I totally believe that she is doing her own tweeting, but I think that [Dionne's niece] Brittani is her right hand,” Wendy said. “After Aunt Dionne does what she wants, after midnight, maybe after some bud.”

Wendy went on: “Well, you remember a few years ago, aunt Dionne was stopped at the Miami airport trying to get back to Jersey and you know, Jersey now has the bud. But, Miami is ‘buddier.’ TSA stopped aunt Dionne and opened up a lipstick tube and found four, excuse me, 11 pre-rolled joints. Oh yeah, they got the dog on it [and] it was weed… Yeah, she’s still [consuming marijuana.] After midnight, a little bud, a little Chardonnay.”

She also critiqued the angle in which Dionne recently recorded a video for Twitter.

“Aunt Dionne knows how to stay relevant and Brittani is right there giving her all the filters and checking it over before she sends [it] and I think that’s a great thing,” Wendy added. “I think if you’re a person of a particular age, you need social media and you need to get down sometimes and talk at these kids, not to them, at them. But you did need someone in your family to make sure that you’re coming off correct.”

After the episode aired, Dionne caught wind of Wendy had to say and she wasn’t too happy.
