Rihanna's dating history has linked her to many big names in entertainment but, she still has yet to find the one and settle down. Even with recent reports suggesting that she and Drake have been secretly dating, talk show host Wendy Williams believes this is just another hook up that will soon fade away because men only see her as "holla back girl" and just don't take her seriously in relationships.

On Monday May 9, Williams and entertainment journalist Ellie Lee dished the "Inside Scoop" on Rihanna's dating life during The Wendy Williams Show. Lee spoke on recent rumors that the "Umbrella" singer has been secretly dating rapper Drake and making many live show appearances with him to perform her hit single "Work," which he's featured on. Lee revealed a video of the two on stage together with the Barbados born singer twerking and grinding up against Drake like a couple who may be intimate.

When Lee asked Williams her opinion on the alleged relationship, she responded, "I think that Rihanna at this point in her life is a holla back girl."

The term, which singer Gwen Stefani successfully turned into a hit single with the catchy hook, ""Few times I've been around that track, so it's not just gonna happen like that, cause I ain't no holla back girl," can be interpreted in many ways to mean a girl that you just hook up with to have a little fun out on the town or for that good time "booty call." Williams explained further what her definition of a "holla back girl" is and why she believe Rihanna falls into that category.

"A girl that guys have fun with, with no intentions of bringing [home] to mom," explained the say it like you mean it talk show host. "There's nothing wrong with that at her particular age but, I'm just letting you know I don't that she's serious with anyone cause no one could be serious with her because she is a...[holla back girl.]

The 28-year-old has been romantically linked to several guys including, Chris Brown, Matt Kemp, Shia LaBeouf, Ashton Kutcher, Leonardo DiCaprio and Odell Beckam Jr, amongst others according to Bossip. But when it comes to Drake, Rihanna says that they are not dating, she is in fact single, as she revealed during her interview on Ellen according to Billboard.
