As one of America’s most popular daytime talk show hosts, Wendy Williams has consistently dished out advice on all subjects to millions of people around the country. She is a radio icon, NY Times Bestselling Author, but what Wendy is perhaps known most for is her everyday, genuine, and authentic approach to her fan’s needs by saying what we are all thinking. Her talk show has grown in ratings every year, and was just renewed until 2017, and has made Wendy one of television’s most popular and outspoken personalities.  Even her catch phrase of “How You Doooiinn?” is known around the country.  As if she wasn’t busy enough already, Wendy will also be starring in the iconic Broadway musical “Chicago”, and her new book “Ask Wendy”, has become another bestseller and received overwhelming critical support.

Here “The King Of Kamelot” chats #InTheLab with the one and only Wendy Williams at her studio about her incredible “late” rise to fame, her new book “Ask Wendy”, how she has become one of America’s most loved advice givers, her feelings on her role in “Chicago” and attempting Broadway, the success of her talk show, sharing her own problems and issues with her fans through books and TV, staying humble and genuine in the face of rising fame, and so much more!
