Wendy Williams has catchphrase: How U Doin?
She is doing just fine, than you. On a muggy summer morning in New Jersey, the talk show queen is prepping for her new season. Her Adorn brand is selling out on QVC.
In fact, you can catch Wendy tonight at 6-7 p.m. EST on QVC to check out her latest line of gorgeous accessories.
Right now, she's chilling out at home before turning into the public Williams that audiences adore.
"Right now, I'm at home with no wig on top of my head. My hair is tossed in a bun and I'm talking to you," she says. "I will go to the gym in two hours, so that means I have to get out my gym wig."
She has a gym wig? "It's sort and cut at my jawbone," she says with a laugh. "I don't take out the falling-down-my-back wig for the gym."
She can't wait to take to the QVC airwaves later with her glam wig. Her line includes everything from to-die-for purses to her favorite reading glasses, plus lovely rings and necklaces.
"I'm an accessories type of woman," says Williams. "If you wake up and you're not having such a great morning, it's amazing what a pretty ring or a great necklace can do for your mood."
"I'm just so excited to be back on QVC," she says. "I have watches with diamond embellishments that are gorgeous, plus bright, juicy, yellow and beautiful blue handbags. You have to check out the scarves."
She says that she's a home shopping fan. "When I'm in Jersey, you can find me laying on my couch or in my kitchen watching my own show or QVC," she says.
A FEW BEAUTY GRIPES
She admits that she's not always in such a sunny mood when it comes to beauty.
"I have cellulite," says Williams. "I don't believe there is a way to get rid of it. When it comes to certain things in life like annoying cellulite, I think that you just don't fight it. You learn to deal with it."
"Honey, no!" Williams insists. "I don't wear those undergarments. I find them too hot and uncomfortable.
"I remember a number of years ago when girdles were in. I'd watch my mother put on those girdles," she says with a laugh. "I thought girdles were just a beautiful part of being a woman.
"Why does no one tell you as a little girl that these things are uncomfortable!" she cries. "And for a lot of us, if you have fat, you see the dent in the undergarments."
So what's her tummy secret?
"I stand up straight and hold my stomach in," Williams cries. "It's a good tip!"
WENDY WILLIAMS BEAUTY SECRETS
Wendy says that her beauty routine at home begins with good skincare.
"I use the Clairsonic facial brush on my skin. I swear by it," she says. "I think that good skin is the foundation of real beauty.
"I'm fortunate that my mother and father have good skin. That's where mine was devised," she says.
Her daily skin care routine is pretty simple.
"Just find a great moisturizer that you love and drink a lot of water," she says.
Wendy is a huge fan of wigs.
"I wear wigs all the time and I make no secret of it," she says. "My own hair is thin. It's a natural thinness that's on my mom's side. I also have thyroid disease, which thins your hair.
"I was diagnosed with it 12 years ago," she says. "And it has thinned my hair out, but not thinned it out ridiculously."
"Wigs are simple, easy, and you can be a lot of different Wendys! My husband loves my wigs," she says.
