Wendy Williams is aiming for the top spot on daytime TV. People bet that Wendy couldn’t successfully make the switch to TV, but her talk show has been renewed through the 2016-2017 season.
She’s also got a new book (her seventh!) coming out April 15. The icing on the cake is that the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, which is charged with housing art and artifacts for a visual history of American life, is putting her stuff inside. Wendy is the first daytime talk-show host to donate. She’s so on top of things!
She talks to S2S Publisher Jamie Foster Brown about that honor and more in the April 2014 issue. Get a preview below.
Jamie: When the Smithsonian asked you to be a part of their entertainment exhibit. What did you think and what did you give them?
Wendy: Well, first of all, with the Smithsonian, Jamie, I’m still glowing. It’s the most unbelievable thing, and it will always be the most unbelievable thing that has ever happened to me, career-wise. I could go on and act for 100 years and win an Oscar but it would never compare to going down in history with the Smithsonian. I could talk my behind off on TV and get Daytime Emmys for the best talk show. It would be sweet, but it will never compare to being a part of history in the Smithsonian. Who dreams of that?
Wendy: Yes, and you know, Jamie, a lot of people think that you buy your way into the Smithsonian the way you can buy a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, or that you call them and then they call you back when they get around to it. The Smithsonian doesn’t do that. They have to invite you and they stand for everything Americana. The Smithsonian is all about things that have shaped our country. I’m the first talk show host to be asked to donate. First ever.
Jamie: Not even Oprah?!
Wendy:Not even Oprah, not even Merv Griffin, not even Regis.
Wendy talks about her husband, dealing with criticism and more in the April 2014 issue of Sister 2 Sister. Check it out!
