Wendy Williams: From ‘Dancing with the Stars’ to Essence cover girl
From radio to TV and now to “Dancing with the Stars” — Wendy Williams does it all! So Wendy Williams, “How you doin’?”
Just fine, I’m sure she’s somewhere saying. Now, she graces ESSENCE’s first-ever “Girlfriends Issue,” dedicated to friendships. Williams opens up in an interview with ESSENCE talking about friendship, family and the driving force behind the talk show queen’s appeal.
The issue also features Beyoncé and mom Tina Knowles; Sherri Shepherd and Niecy Nash; Jada Pinkett Smith and Queen Latifah; Kelly Rowland and Brandy; Monica and Keyshia Cole and more.
ESSENCE will also declare April 13th as “Girlfriends Appreciation Day” in honor of “besties” everywhere. And they’re throwing a party for Mrs. Wendy–sponsored by Essie and Swarovski Elements celebrating the Girlfriends Issue.
Williams says about the issue,
“I’m the girlfriend in your head who’s got a few miles on her and will give you the best advice I can…”
The star took her exit from DWTS with stride as she jokingly talked about her short dancing career with Good Day New York. “Thanks for not voting,” she said.
Despite the end of her DWTS appearance, Williams believes she accomplished her goal.
“At the very least I’m doing this for women of a particular age who say they can’t,”Williams, 46, said in an interview prior to losing.
We’re proud of you Wendy! Can’t wait to see you in ESSENCE on April 13th.
