If you are a NYC Wendy Williams fan like I am, then you jumped on the chance to be part of a live taping of her new show. All I can say is, GREAT JOB!
For those of you who couldn’t make it, here’s what went down at the July 14th NYC taping:
Wendy looked fab in a classy royal purple wrap dress (maybe DVF, not sure) and cheetah print Louboutin heels. Hair, makeup, all fabulous! The set: soft and pink, of course! Fox’s production team was warm and fun, doing Soul Train lines with the audience and giveaways as we awaited the Queen of All Media to come out. The segments and guest interviews were short but it felt just like her radio show: down-to-earth, warm and funny. Actor James Denton (Desperate Housewives) and Rihanna’s hair stylist (who did an interesting segment on short wigs) were both guests along with Wendy’s traditional “Advice Hour” segment. Wendy was candid, funny and engaging throughout the whole show, and even chatted with audience members. At the end of the taping, co-host Charlemagne and hubby/manager Kevin Hunter came through to show their support. Fun was had by all:-) The only disappoint was that it was all too short, feeling like the end of a fun girls’ night out. Following a similar format of her syndicated radio show, The Wendy Williams TV Show is destined to be a hit with loyal fans. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it, Ms. Wendy!
