How you doin’? Wendy Williams is doing more than fine today, October 17, because she’s getting her very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! She showed up to the coveted ceremony in a black sheer dress with white stars on it — a fitting look for her big award.
There’s major congrats in order for Wendy Williams, who received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today, October 17! The talk show host, 55, arrived to her official ceremony looking like a star, literally. Wendy was dressed in a black sheer gown, which featured white star patterns throughout. The award-winning veteran host stunned with a long, blonde wig, as she teared up on stage, listening to her dear friends recap her iconic career thus far.
Wendy has recieved high praise from a ton of her peers, one in-particular being David Perler, who has served as executive producer on The Wendy Williams Show for the past nine years. “Wendy has had to push against the tide her entire career,” Perler told our sister site, Variety. “Wendy is a new kind of entertainer for a new day — a day where viewers see being overly polished and safe as insincere.”
“If you want a polished interview and polished journalism, then you’re watching the wrong show,” Williams told the magazine. “If you want a good time, you better get into ‘Wendy’ because you never know what’s going to happen. I don’t know what’s going to happen either — I passed out on TV and was revived during commercial break!”
