Songstress Aretha Franklin says “How you doin’?”
Detroit’s own Aretha Franklin invited The Wendy Williams Show to her hometown of Detroit to chat over some tea, at the Townsend Hotel. The episode aired Wednesday in the form of “Part 1”. They discussed everything from Franklin’s astonishing diet change and weight loss to the cancelations of her tour last year.
Franklin never fully explains the details of her various surgeries.
“I want to talk about your health,” Williams said. “Recently there was a health scare from what I heard; it started with a pain in your side?”
Franklin replied, “Yes, that was my first inkling that something was wrong, that something wasn’t what it should be. The pain was so hard, it nearly brought me to my knees. So I said, ‘The concerts are over. I have to go and find out what is wrong.’ “
Franklin goes on to commend Williams for her support of Franklin’s god-daughter Whitney Houston.
- Franklin confirmed that Halle Berry would play her younger self in a film adaption of her life
- She does not have a thing for Terrance Howard and only spoke to him about a movie role
- She lost 85 pounds

It was wonderful! Aguiliera was good. She was feeling it that night. Jennifer was good. But I particularly liked what Yolanda Adams did with “Spirit in the Dark”
Fantasia’s boycott of the awards
I didn’t do the selection. She needs to learn that you are not going to participate in everything you would like to participate in.
