WENDY WILLIAMS & LARRY KING ON TWITTER FEUD

Wendy Williams At Larry King



The ever-outspoken Wendy Williams joins Larry in New York on the Emmy-nominated series “Larry King Now” to dish on everything from the recent Kanye, Wiz, and Amber Rose Twitter feud, to what talent the Kardashian’s actually have, to her thoughts on Trump's run for the White House. Plus, Wendy discloses what famous face of yesteryear she wishes she could have interviewed on 'The Wendy Williams Show'.



Wendy Williams, a constant critic of the Kardashians, explains why Hollywood’s most famous family has found such success in their business & media pursuits. “They do have a talent,” she admits. “Making you pay attention, that is a talent, especially when you don’t have an actual talent.” On her talk show, Wendy recently reminded everyone that “we met [Kim Kardashian] on her back,” referring to the infamous tape that arguably launched the Kardashian family into fame.



The daytime talk show host also discusses politics with Larry, saying, “I don’t even know who I’m going to vote for Larry, and that’s all I’m going to say. What a mess. What a mess!” She also weighs on the presidential hopefuls. “I mean, Donald Trump. Great guy off the political trail. Hillary- just because she’s a woman doesn’t mean I have to vote for her. Bernie Sanders - is he going to make it to the election? That’s a bad seventy four, Larry.”

WENDY WILLIAMS SPECULATING ON BRUCE JENNER

Wendy Williams




Despite coming under fire last month for speculating about Bruce Jenner’s gender identity, Wendy Williams told HuffPost Live on Monday that she is “happy for him.”




The daytime talk show personality discussed the recent controversy surrounding her comments about the reality star and former Olympian’s recent change in appearance. Williams said her previous comments were not intended to be hurtful.



Williams: "I don't know what Bruce is going through, but I'm happy for him because there's got to be nothing worse in a person's life then to not be able to live in your own truth. Whether you're gay, whether you're transgender -- whatever. Whatever it is."




Williams also discussed her relationship with the LGBT community, the sincerity of which has been questioned due to this controversy and others before it.



Williams: "People hear what they want to hear, not what was actually said...Listen, I'm a friend to a lot of communities. You know, I call things as I see them and that's that."





Wendy Williams also weighed in on Britney Spears' new boyfriend, saying 'I smell an opportunist.'

Maks Chmerkovskiy On Wendy Williams



"Dancing With The Stars" winning couple, Maks Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis, joined Wendy Williams in her Hot Topics segment this morning, where Maks confirmed he would would accept a role as one of the judges if the show offered it to him.


Maks said, "I'm not Simon [Cowell]. I'm not a nice judge. I'm a good judge. I judge the way it's supposed to be. I know this business, I've been in it, I grew up in it. Somebody asked me yesterday why I started dancing and I once again thought about it. I was 4 years old. Who knows why. Spending 30 years in an industry, that you, you know, I think I've done a little bit in it. I know what I'm talking about. Unlike some of the guest judges that we had this season."

DOLLY PARTON GOSSIPS WITH WENDY WILLIAMS


Dolly Parton Visits Wendy Williams



Wendy Williams' bosom buddy, Dolly Parton, joined her on the purple couch today to talk the necessity of make-up, her thoughts on god daughter Miley Cyrus, and why she doesn't eat her own cooking. Dolly also performed the track "Try" from her new album, "Blue Smoke."


Dolly revealed make-up is integral to her routine at home and particularly when in California, before joking about the circumstances when she might consider going out without being made up. "I would be wig-less, but like I said, I put little hot rollers in my hair in the morning and a little scrunchie but I would not answer the door without some makeup or hair. No. I spend a lot of time in California, and you know, they're always prone to have earthquakes, I never take my makeup off at night, I always keep it. Cause, I thought, if I have to run out in the streets you know, I have to look good cause you know there are going to be cameras everywhere. The only way I'd go out without make up and my hair done up a little bit is if my husband had a heart attack and I'd have to really think about it."

LaTavia Roberson On Wendy Williams




The newest "R&B Divas Atlanta" member and former Destiny's Child singer, LaTavia Roberson, visited "The Wendy Williams Show" today to dish about being ousted from the pop supergroup, her battles with alcohol and her forthcoming tell-all memoir.



Of her dismissal from Destiny's Child, LaTavia said, "I definitely did not quit. Who would quit Destiny's Child? That's insane." She revealed, "Our conflict was strictly with management, it had nothing to do with the other ladies at all... We didn't have anything against Beyonce and Kelly at all. At that time Matthew [Knowles] was our personal manager and he was everybody's group manager. We disaffirmed him as our personal manager. We wanted to have someone come in and manage along with him. We weren't trying to fire the group's manager." She added she's still in touch with her former band members, "I ran into to Beyonce some years ago. I spoke to Kelly, it was nothing but love. Latoya was at my baby shower."

TIA MOWRY-HARDRICT TALKS BEYONCE OBSESSION


Tia Mowry-Hardrict With Wendy Williams




Tia Mowry-Hardrict dished to Wendy Williams today about cutting her hair short, her obsession with Beyonce, and working with some of TV's most beloved moms.


Tia revealed she recently cut her hair short beneath her wig. "A lot of people, they ask me this when they see my hair straight like this. I'm protecting my curls. When I want a sleek, sexy straight look, I don't want to blow it out because I'm going to ruin my hair. It's grown out. It was damaged before, so that's why I had to cut it all off, and now it's grown out in these curls. My son, he influenced me to do it." She added that her sister, Tamera, cut her hair off too completely coincidentally, "Ironically, we did it at the same time. I had no idea she was doing that."

He spelled out the line, adding, "'I was In Too Deep like Mekhi Phife'. Yeah, but I wasn't in that movie. [It was] LL Cool J and Omar Epps and those guys. So you know, the thing is, I got love for, yeah, you know what I'm saying. He's very talented. But I mean, he's in the studio. All you gotta do is google a brother. IMDB's a good tool.

I got love for the judge. He's a good guy. Yeah, we hang out. The judge is a real cool cat. I met him on the plane. I think I was going to Detroit at the time, or coming from Detroit, either one. My assistant knew that I always tivoed the judge and so she said, you know the Judge is sitting right there. And I said oh stop it. So we wound up talking and linking up. This was about ten years ago. And then we've been friends ever since. So we hang out, we do things, you know, we go to the ball games, things like that."

MARIA MENOUNOS COMES CLEAN ABOUT MARRIAGE


Maria Menounos On Wendy Williams




"Extra" co-host, Maria Menounos visited "The Wendy Williams Show" today to talk long term dating, saving her father's life, reporting negative news and why breaking bones was a career highlight for her.


Having been with her boyfriend for almost 16 years, Maria opened up about their reasons for not tying the knot. "When we wanted to get married, we couldn't. And you'll see that on the show. You'll understand why we didn't. It was a very tough courtship because of some really hard obstacles. And we talked about it on the show and you'll see why it was kind of a really sad time. So then when we moved to LA and careers got busy, and we got all of that kind of thrown at us. Well then we got busy. And then time went by and time went by and now we're like, uh, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. It's kind of working the way it is." She added, "We work together on everything. But I feel like if we were married, some of those tough times, you would've been like 'I'm stuck, I'm married now'. But we weren't. So it's kind of a weird thing."

KRYSTEN RITTER TALKS MEN AND DRUGS WITH WENDY

****
ON THE TUBE
****



Krysten Ritter On Wendy Williams




Starring in the big screen adaptation of "Veronica Mars," Krysten Ritter stopped by The Wendy Williams Show today to discuss men, drugs, being discovered at 15, and spoilers for the long awaited film adaptation of the cult favorite TV series.


Revealing little about the plot of the "Veronica Mars" movie, Krysten said, "I can't give anything away. I think the fact that I'm in the movie, I'm doing press for it, is probably a spoiler, in and of itself, right? Cause I have a small part in the show. And here I am. I have a big part in the movie. So that's a bit of a spoiler for everybody."


The single Krysten revealed she's into a specific type of guy. "I love me some men. Yeah. I like long hair. A bit of a beard. A good body. I've dated a lot of short guys, it's not cool. Well, they say once you're horizontal it doesn't matter. But. I'm in trouble by the way, I'm in trouble after this," she finished with a grin.


Before starring in "Don't Trust The B in Apartment 23" or "Breaking Bad," where she "learned how to cook heroin, all day," Krysten revealed she caught her big break at the age of 15 while growing up in a small Pennsylvania town. "I was such a loser. I'm wearing men's jeans. Thank God they saw beyond that. Because I was wearing a chapstick necklace. Do you remember those? And then I was wearing like a tie dye Guns 'n' Roses shirt. And they were like, are you interested in being a model. My mother and I looked at each other like, 'what, no way'?!" This prompted her move to Hollywood, of which she said, "It was then that I was introduced to a lot of cool stuff and I met a lot of weirdos and then I was like, there's so much other stuff to do."
