Devious Maids and All My Children legend Susan Lucci stopped by The Wendy Williams Show Thursday, to help the talk show host celebrate her birthday.
During her appearance, La Lucci flipped the script and placed Williams in the ‘Hot Seat’, a game she plays with her guests. For Williams’ last question, Lucci asked the birthday girl what her most awkward encounter was with a celebrity. Williams told Lucci and the audience about a time she ran into talk show titan Oprah Winfrey. Williams recalled:
"I was coming down the escalator and she was going up the escalator in a publishing building. I forgot exactly what I was doing there, but that’s where Harpo's...where her magazine is here in Manhattan. And we were the only two people in the lobby other than security downstairs, and for them I guess it was like watching a TV show. You know, like okay, 'Here it goes.' And I said to my publicist [who] was with me, I said, “There’s Oprah hold in your stomach!”

Don’t dare call Tika Sumpter’s red-hot role in Tyler Perry'sThe Haves and the Have Nots a bad depiction of black women! Sumpter chatted with TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan about criticism of her role as femme fatale Candace Young in OWN's breakout hit.
TV Guide Magazine: There's been criticism that your character presents a negative image of African-American women. Is that fair? Or is this a breakthrough of sorts? It seems African-American actresses rarely get to play the badass.
Sumpter: It's true! I think most people write from what they see in their own world, which is maybe why we so often see an African-American woman as the best friend, or the one you bring in when you need some sass. It's like we're put in a box. When I was on One Life to Live I always wanted to delve into my character, Layla, to find out why she was the black sheep of the family. I so wanted to have some edge.
