Daytime talk-show host Wendy Williams joined WOR's Joan Hamburg Monday to talk about her latest projects, which includes a new book "Ask Wendy" and a role on the Broadway show "Chicago."
Williams' sixth book hits shelves this week with the 47-year-old former shock jock dishing out advice on a variety of topics. Williams will also be starring in "Chicago" as Matron "Mama" Morton in her Broadway debut next month. Oh, and Williams also has her own wig line coming out.
Williams talked about a number of topics, including that she is so busy with all her projects she doesn't have time for a lot of girlfriends. "Girlfriends are the last thing on my mind," Williams said on "The Joan Hamburg Show." Williams also told Joan on WOR 710 that the one thing she would like to have (if she could have anything) is a private plane. Listen in to Wendy Williams on WOR 710 below.
