The Wendy Williams Show
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!”

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?”
