Wendy Williams Talks About Topics She Will Cover In Her Vegas Standup Show
With her 50th birthday coming up on July 18, talk show host Wendy Williams spoke to ABC’s Dan Kloeffler on Tuesday about her new stand-up comedy show “Lipshtick” in Las Vegas.
The show hits Vegas on July 11 and is part of a bucket list Williams had before the big birthday, including doing karaoke for the first time, driving a monster truck and of course, stand-up comedy.
“I’ve always been told I was funny,” she admitted. “So, I said, ‘I would like to do an evening of stand up.'”
Her jokes will be “the Wendy no one has ever seen,” said Williams, adding they will come from personal experience.
“I had a very tortured childhood,” she said. “I was tortured, they fat shamed me … So, I want to talk about growing up. I want to answer the big question about the boobs. People know they are breast implants, but a lot of people, I read and see, ‘You’ve lost so much weight now, you need a breast reduction.’ I will answer you straight and direct, if you are in Vegas.”
Wendy says she won’t be shy to address the rumor that she stands up to pee…
“People do think I was born a man,” she said. “That is absolutely not [true]. I get it. I’ve got a strong face, a strong body, I’m 5’11. I wear wigs.”
Williams added that in her opinion, “there’s no worse way to insult a woman than by saying she looks like a man, but once a woman gets over that, there is no stronger woman.”
Hopefully Wendy’s night of standup will be released to the public because we’d love to hear what she has to say about her manly physique.
