One of my guilty pleasures is watching Wendy Williams when I can, either on FOX or BET depending on when I get home. I remember getting mixtapes from friends with her breaks on Hot 97 years ago mixed in; never knew a Hip-Hop shock-jock until I heard Wendy “What?” Williams…crazy!
Glad she has moved to TV and getting re-upped for a 3rd season.
With Oprah Winfrey ending her talk show reign this year, there’s another larger-than-life personality who may be poised to take over daytime television.
Right now, her show, which was praised by the New York Times as a “breakthrough in daytime” airs in more than 70 percent of the country and on FOX, CBS, NBC and BET television stations in major cities. This week alone, the former radio personality nailed an exclusive interview with Aretha Franklin and a visit by the cast of BET’s ‘The Game.’
According to a rep, the brash and brazen Asbury Park, N.J., native has had a ratings boost this season in several major FOX markets including New York and Los Angeles.
