Wendy Williams, Star Jones team up for TV

    Wendy Williams and Star Jones know the hectic world of daytime TV, and now the two hosts are teaming up to dramatize the drama.

    Wendy and Star will join forces to produce a new VH1 TV film based on Star’s novel, Satan’s Sisters, which could turn into a regular series, according to Atlanta Blackstar.

    The show will be a departure from the network’s robust roster of reality TV shows and will instead explore the “cut-throat world of daytime TV.”

    We first got word of Star’s new television show last year during a visit to “The Wendy Williams Show.”

    “You were really one of the first supporters of Satan’s Sisters,” she told Wendy back in October. “So I’m going to tell you something that maybe I’m not supposed to. This will be the first time I’ve said it out loud; they are turning [my novel] into a television show. I can’t tell you any more yet, but it’s a done deal.”

    This is not Wendy’s only producing gig. The daytime host announced on her show that she is partnering up with Suzanne de Passe of de Passe Jones Entertainment to produce future projects for television and film.

    “Wendy’s popularity and brand is evidenced by her success in daytime television,” said Suzanne. “We are looking forward to expanding her brand and audience in all areas of filmed and scripted entertainment.”

    Wendy and Star have been outspoken critics of VH1’s "Basketball Wives" franchise. See what they and others have had to say below.
