Talk show host Wendy Williams has finally been rewarded with her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The actress and OAP, received the 2,677th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, yesterday, the 17th of October, 2019.
Graciously accepting the award, an emotional Wendy Williams spoke of the people around her who made this possible. She thanked her staff on the ‘Wendy Williams Show’, her mentors, Mike Douglas and Dinah Shore and her family and friends.
“If I don’t laugh, I’ll cry, so I’ll keep it light and laughter-y,” Wendy said clearly choked up, “Jack and Elvis and Mitch and people have said throughout the day … I’m successful because I’ve done things my way. No, not exactly. It’s because I’m a good listener to advice, and if I don’t like the advice, then I do things my way.” she said.
She added: “I did not know I would be a talk-show host, but I liked the chit-chat — I’ve always liked the chit-chat. When they told me, ‘It’s going to be a live talk show,’ I was frightened — frightened. Doing it by myself, I had no problem with because most of my career I’ve been by myself. Even in a room full of a thousand people, I always feel like the person who doesn’t belong.”
She also paid tribute to her son who was there at the ceremony, and to him she said: “My son is here with me … he’s only 19, he’s only known me as Mom with the microphone, and then Mom in the headlines, and Mom saying out-of-order stuff.
“So, this star means everything. Because now he’s got something to look at and say, ‘My mom did it.'”
