I guess Wendy Williams must have really had a good time doing her cameo in Think Like a Man. The daytime talk show host is now headed for the Great White Way! Williams announced today on her talk show, she will be starring in Broadway's Chicago for a seven- week run.
The outspoken, gossip queen will play Matron "Mama" Morton starting June 25. Can someone please hurry up and get Janet Hubert's reaction to this news? Watch Williams' reveal her news on Wendy after the jump!
In the aftermath of Janet Hubert's (ex-Lisa Williamson, One Life to Live, ex-Alice Dawson All My Children) open letter to Wendy Williams about Tatyana Ali, it appears the former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actress wants to settle at least one of her various feuds. The Grio's Chris Witherspoon caught up with Hubert, and questioned her about her exit as Aunt Vivian and feud with Will Smith. She talked about how she'd like to heal what happened between her and Smith.
“I would say to him [Smith], we need to heal this. You’ve done some things, you’ve said some things, that were totally untrue and you know that they were untrue. I’ve said some things that I probably should have never said. But you’ve never heard them come from my mouth. Especially the TMZ thing last Christmas; my Mom passed away. So there I was again in the media getting beaten up…and you get tired. I’m tired. Aren’t you tired Will?”
Don’t expect former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air mom Janet Hubert to invite talk show host Wendy Williams over for a girl's brunch anytime soon. The All My Children and One Life to Live alum tore Williams a new one, after watching former onscreen daughter Tatyana Ali be grilled by Williams on her self-titled talk show, about what exactly made Hubert leave the 90’s sitcom. Hubert stated:
Wendy Williams, or whatever you are supposed to be, I’m not quite sure. I’m writing you yet again, to appeal to your sense of womanhood or manhood as some suggest. Please close your mouth about things that you know nothing of.
Now, I watched your show to see dear Tatyana Ali sadly to say, fall into your trap. She even brought pictures of our days on the show from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. You know most people watch you just to see what heinous things your mouth will say compared to what an overflowing volcano will spew forth on that day. Now perhaps other black women have allowed you to berate them and continued to support you in this manner of madness and rewarding hatefulness. It seems to have become the norm and has taken over our society completely. But I, Janet Hubert, sat there and watched you tell the world that I was not a nice mother. I’m thinking to myself, the only person who has the right to say that is my child. So I sat there and watched you like some devilish sinkhole swallow up Tatyana Ali You reduced her to a child sitting their attempting to keep some semblance of dignity about her as you pried and invaded her life until you got what you wanted.
Tatyana Ali was back on daytime Tuesday, but not on CBS Daytime's The Young and the Restless. The actress, who recurs as Devon's (Bryton James) galpal Roxanne on Y&R, appeared on The Wendy Williams Show to plug the season finale of her smart, funny BET sitcom Second Generation Wayans.
The Fresh Princess of Belair also fielded questions about one night stands and a possible hook-up with teen soap star-turned-rapper Drake! Watch the interview below.
