Talk show host, Wendy Williams has been given her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The star which was unveiled on October 17, is the 2,677th on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
After it was unveiled, Wendy Williams gave a speech thanking her face and staff on her show.
“If I do not laugh, I’ll cry, so I’ll keep it light and laughter-y,” said Williams as she took the podium to accept her honor, choking back tears all the same. “Jack and Elvis and Mitch and I have done all day … I’m successful because I’ve done things my way. No, not exactly. It’s because I do not like the advice, then I do things my way.
“I did not know I would be a talk-show host, but I liked the chit-chat – I’ve always liked the chit-chat,” she said. “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. Even in a room full of a thousand people, I always feel like the person who does not belong. “
“My son is here with me … he’s only 19, he’s only known to have Mom with the microphone, and then Mom in the headlines, and Mom saying out-of-order stuff,” she explained. “So, this star means everything, because it’s got something to look at and say, ‘My mom did it.'”
