For those that missed it, Kendall was the presenter for the band 5 Seconds of Summer, but as she was announcing the boy band, she completely messed up her words, and actually started to say One Direction. She then seemed to blank on the band's actual name and started laughing at herself, telling the audience, "Guys, I'm the worst reader."
Phaedra didn't miss an opportunity to lecture the youth of America.
"Now Miss Kendall, you might have more money than you'll ever be able to spend, but what you don't have is basic reading skills, so do the future a favor and purchase Hooked on Phonics. Now, check that," Phaedra said on Dish Nation.
To be fair, we think it was pretty admirable of Kendall to own up to her flub and laugh it off. Her actions show true confidence, which we're sure Phaedra would agree is a fine trait for any Southern Belle.
Poor Kendall took to Twitter later in the evening to defend her mistake, writing, "Annndddd as if I wasn't nervous already!!!! #NeverLeavinMyContactsAtHomeAGain! #LOL #LessonLearned."
We definitely think it could have been worse — ahem, John Travolta.
