Television host and radio voice, Wendy Williams, explained why she won’t join the cast of The Real Housewives of New York City, ending rumors that she will be headed to the hit show on Bravo.
Since 2008, Wendy Williams has hosted her nationally syndicated day time talk show, The Wendy Williams Show. Before her TV fame, Williams was a radio DJ in New York City who gained popularity for her constant feuds with celebrities. Williams' best-known - and most infamous - on-air battle was with the late Whitney Houston, during which time Williams kept asking about Houston’s drug use. This naturally ended upsetting upset Houston, causing a heated argument on the air, branding Williams as the "shock jockette."
Season 11 of The Real Housewives of New York City has just ended, but inside sources have claimed that there will be an addition to the cast for the coming season, according to RealityTea. Recently, Williams has had to deny rumors that she will be leaving her show and appearing on The Real Housewives of New York City as a housewife. During the ‘Hot Topic” segment of a recent episode of The Wendy Williams Show, the host addressed the rumors, saying, “I like the ‘Housewives’ ... but if you have a talk show that is your own, why would you?” However, given that she's said she has positive relationships with the cast, her presence on the show likely wouldn't stir up much drama.
Even if Bravo were to reach out to Williams, she didn’t seem too open with sharing her personal life on television During her show, she went on to say, “First of all, you’re not coming to my apartment.” The daytime TV show host was not thrilled with the idea of having to open her life up and bear it all for fans to judge. She elaborated by saying she would not allow cameras to show who she was dating, as she is currently going through a divorce.
As Williams seems to prefer having control of her own show, it seems unlikely that fans of The Real Housewives of New York will see her holding an apple any time soon. Williams could be a fun addition to the cast, as she is known for confidently speaking her mind, so she would fit right in with the existing ladies. As of now, though, since Williams is someone who'd rather talk about drama than actually take part in the drama, those chances seem highly unlikely.
