It’s not every day, month or even year (Jerry Springer opera notwithstanding) that a daytime talk show host chats with their audience about the experience of being on Broadway. So be sure to check out Wendy Williams‘ rich rundown of playing Mama in the revival of Chicago.
Williams told the audience – following her first four weekend performances – that belting out a couple of musical numbers has been both thrilling and more difficult than anything she has attempted during her storied radio and TV career. She also segued at one point during the segment to a hilarious denial of a June 28 National Enquirer report.
Breathe easy, everyone. That raging wig line feud alluded to by the Enquirer between Williams and Sherri Shepherd is a figment of the tabloid’s attorney-vetted imagination.
