*Well dang then! Things got crazy and went left quick fast and in a hurry this morning on the “The Breakfast Club” show when comedic duo and hosts of Viceland’s “Desus and Mero” show, Desus Nice and The Kid Mero stopped by for an exclusive interview.
Like we said the situation got dicey when host, DJ Envy, called out the duo for previously ridiculing him and his wife during their appearance on the daytime show “The Real.”
Hmm, you knew it was be interesting when the interview began on a contentious note, as Envy introduced Desus and Mero as “Dickhead and P*s*y.” Then, Envy went into why he had issues with the two, who are former podcasters.
“You owe my wife an apology,” Envy told them.
Dumbfounded by Envy’s statement, the duo asked what was he talking about. Envy explained how during a recent episode of their show, they mocked him and his wife, Gia, during their appearance on “The Real,” implying that she was only with him for his money.
“[You] insinuated that she was there for the check,” he said.

It’s worth noting that prior to the interview, Envy noted that he and his wife have been together since he was 15 years old, and how she was once the breadwinner in their relationship.
“So to insinuate that she was there for a check, or she’s good with Envy’s check, is a disrespect to me and her,” he said. Then, Envy proceeded to play the clip from the episode of Desus and Mero and highlighted Mero’s statement, which he deemed rude and distasteful.
At that point they offered an apology to both Envy and his wife, but that wasn’t enough for Envy, who went on to walk out of the interview.
Meanwhile, the “The Breakfast Club’s” competitor, Hot 97 morning host, Ebro Darden, took to Twitter and suggested the interview was a marketing ploy by Power 105 to boost their views.
“Envy walked off his own show? Amazing marketing! The Viceland x iHeart promo machine working overtime,” tweeted Darden. “Desus & Mero nicest people too!!” He later continued, “It was staged when u walked off here too…. U knew it would get promo.”
Envy wasn’t having it and responded on Twitter, rebutting Darden’s theory.
“Smh… You of all people know me… You was there the last time some 1 said something crazy about my family… And @JoeBudden we spoke about it.. we don’t need the marketing,” he said.
