Let’s start with some numbers.
36 years in Broadcasting for Wendy Williams, and her TV show is going into its 13th Season. Wendy throws down the gauntlet to me:
“I’m 56, but I know I look 36.” -Wendy Williams
“I’m a grown woman. And with a grown career.” Wendy Williams
“I planned this career. This isn’t happenstance!!! I knew in sixth grade what I wanted to be.” -Wendy Williams
Wendy Williams has got it going on. Wendy may be 56 but she is a good looking woman who looks 36. Lord knows, has the personality and energy to match. Our conversation started quite nicely with the Queen of daytime talk with Wendy saying in her cheerful voice:
“Hi Dom….Hi everyone…” -Wendy Williams
Yet at the same time Wendy quickly drew a line in the sand, establishing the ground rules by telling me that she was a respectable human being:
“ If you say one slick word, I will hang up on you.” -TV Host Wendy Williams to Dominic Carter
Fair enough I thought….Then I dove in. Did Wendy know her career would skyrocket? The queen of gossip said no, and then as only Wendy would do, came her rhetorical question?
“Are you out of your mind?” Did you see my lifetime Movie event?”-Wendy Williams
I did see the movie and the documentary that aired afterwards! Like Wendy, one day I too…. would love to let it all hang out about my own life. But mine would be more like the 2002 Movie Antwone Fisher, which was directed by Denzel Washington. Mr. Fisher had a very rough childhood. So did I. Wendy was the executive producer of the biopic on her life, revealing the highs and lows….and everything in between.
