Wendy Joan Williams is a fictional character from the universe of the franchise Bikini Rangers.

Early life

Williams was born On July 18, 1964, to Thomas and Shirley Williams, as the middle child of three children. She and her siblings were raised in Ocean Township, New Jersey in the Wayside section.[2] She graduated from Ocean Township High School.[3] From 1982 to 1986, Williams attended Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, where she graduated with a B.A. in communications and was also a DJ for the college radio station WRBB 104.9 FM.

Radio career

Williams also interned at WXKS-FM ("Kiss 108") in Boston. She later became a DJ for radio station WVIS in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, and after ten months there, accepted a job at oldies station OLD in Washington D.C..

In 1989, Williams began at "98.7 Kiss FM" in New York City as a fill-in DJ. As rival station WBLS began hiring away staff from that station, Kiss FM hired her full-time for its morning show and gave her a non-compete clause contract; at this time she started her trademark of talking about African-American celebrities, giving listeners the dirt on their personal lives. A year later, Ms. Williams landed her own 9-5 p.m. shift, eventually winning the Billboard Award for Best On-Air Radio Personality in 1993. The following year after her Billboard award Emmis Broadcasting bought out Kiss FM and switched Williams to the company's Hot 97.

Williams was fired from Hot 97 in 1998 for allegedly getting in a fight with her co-worker Angie Martinez, while outing her romantic relationship with rapper Q-Tip. In her New York Times bestselling autobiography Wendy's Got the Heat,[4] Williams praised Martinez while acknowledging a mostly verbal confrontation. Williams stated that the station used the incident as an excuse to terminate her contract, and suggested that it was really pressure from hip-hop mogul Sean "P. Diddy" Combs which led to her dismissal. She alludes to this in her second book The Wendy Williams Experience, as she wrote "He single-handedly tried to ruin me...".

After the Hot97 incident, Williams was hired by a Philadelphia station WUSL ("Power 99FM"), claiming her New York fans "left her for dead".

In 2001, Williams returned to the New York airwaves when WBLS hired her full-time for her own syndicated 2-6 p.m. William's friend, MC Spice of Boston, Massachusetts, offered his voice over services to the show, often adding short rap verses tailored specifically for William's show. By 2008, she was syndicated in Redondo Beach, California (on a station which services the Los Angeles metropolitan area); Shreveport, Louisiana; Wilmington, Delaware; Toledo, Ohio; Columbia, South Carolina; Emporia, Virginia; Lake Charles, Louisiana; Tyler, Texas; and Alexandria, Louisiana among other markets.

Williams' interview style is brash, and she refers to herself, à la Howard Stern, as the "Queen Of All Media". In her television and radio shows, she regularly provides celebrity gossip.

Williams has published several books including the paperback novel Drama is Her Middle Name: The Ritz Harper Chronicles Vol. 1 (2006), which is co-authored by Karen Hunter.

In 2003, Williams interviewed R&B singer Blu Cantrell, asking questions about her sexual activities and practices, her criticism of other R&B artists, and her drug abuse. This interview was sold as a bonus DVD with Cantrell's Bittersweet album.

Williams has been a speaker for Georges Veselle champagne.

In October 2007, Williams filled in for Jodi Applegate on WNYW's morning television show Good Day New York.

On the July 23, 2009 episode of her television show, Williams announced that she had elected to leave radio in order to focus full-time on her television program, as well as spend more time with her family. Eight days later, Williams ended her eight-year-long venture with WBLS. That same year, she was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame.[5]

Television and other media

Television show

[1][2]AMV 53rd Street Studio where the show is producedOn July 13, 2008, Williams debuted her daytime talk show The Wendy Williams Show on My 9 and FOX 5 in New York, and My 13 and FOX 11 in L.A., and most FOX O&O stations except WTVT & WOGX. The show aired in New York City, Dallas, Detroit, and Los Angeles during summer 2008 for a test run. FOX television stations signed a deal with syndication company Debmar-Mercury at the end of the test to broadcast the show on its station group beginning in July 2009.[6] The "shock jockette" remains true to her moniker when in her television trailer, she refers to exercising and crunching for her "belly flatness" and "kegeling" (strengthening her vaginal muscles). As part of the show Williams also drinks tea from various Wonder Woman themed coffee mugs.

In addition to FOX Broadcasting Networks (which also owns MyNetworkTV), BET has also picked up cable rights to The Wendy Williams Show which will premiere simultaneously on TV stations covering more than 95 percent of the United States and BET. Representatives of the BET Networks have stated "After two solid quarters of growth at BET, we're thrilled that 'The Wendy Williams Show' will be joining our line-up in July to strengthen the network's momentum," said Barbara Zaneri, Executive Vice President Programming Strategy, Scheduling and Acquisitions, who negotiated the deal for BET Networks.[7]

Williams has cried several times on her talk show. One instance occurred while talking about weight issues during an Ask Wendy segment. Another instance occurred while discussing her experience with pregnancy during a Hot Topics segment on August 27, 2009. She cried yet again on September 15, 2009 while stating that she did not feel that Whitney Houston took ownership of her previous drug abuse problem in a recent interview with Oprah Winfrey. She compared Houston's drug abuse problem with her own struggles with cocaine. She was clearly moved during an intimate and animated interview with her "big sister" Natalie Cole on February 4, 2010. Williams also cried when comedian and television host Whoopi Goldberg appeared on her show on February 15, 2010. Williams showed an emotional side again on May 17, 2010 when she was able to meet singer Dolly Parton, stating that she feels blessed to be able to meet celebrities she loves.

Along with interviews, Wendy Williams's TV talk show has sparked a friendly rivalry with Joel McHale of The Soup.

On November 19, 2009, the producer announced to the studio audience that the show was confirmed to continue through the 2011-12 season. This information was not announced during the filming of that day's show, only the in- house audience received the news. It was also stated that the show was ranking in the 3rd spot out of 14 with female hosts who are considered competition. The show is currently performing best in the New York City market.[citation needed]

Movie

In 2009, Williams announced that she was in the planning stages of making a movie about her life. The Queen of All Media was written by Kimba Henriques, with Robin Givens in the lead role of Wendy Williams.[8] Filming wrapped up in late August 2009 and is set to be released sometime in 2010. After Wendy's talk show premiered, producers thought that the movie needed a different ending, which they filmed August 26 of 2009. Wendy announced this on her radio show and also said that she wasn't really sure when it will be out.

Other notable cast members include Angel Lola Luv, Trey Songz, Lil' Kim, and Chandra 'Deelishis' Davis.

In 2009, BlogTV announced that Wendy would be a partner with the virtual web show hosting web site that was schedule to launch in mid-2010 which would feature live streaming web cam sessions with celebrity guests.[9]

Awards

Controversy

Williams has been referred to (often negatively) in song lyrics by several artists, among them Jay-Z, Will Smith, Lil' Kim, 50 Cent, Mariah Carey, Rick Ross and Lil Wayne.[11]

Williams has been heavily criticized by rap artist and actor Method Man for airing private facts about his family's personal life (particularly his wife's illness) which he would rather have remained private. He said that Williams' behavior was "tacky and disrespectful."[12]

On March 25, 2008, the New York Post reported that Nicole Spence, talent booker for The Wendy Williams Experience, filed papers with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission suing Williams. Spence, 27, claims that Williams' husband, Kevin Hunter, demanded sex from her on many occasions and created a hostile work environment by threatening and assaulting his wife on company premises. "Mr. Hunter repeatedly sexually propositioned me at work in the most crude and vulgar ways," Spence states. Spence also says that Williams did nothing to stop the alleged abuse, and in fact "offered to take me shopping so I could dress 'like a sexy little bitch,' as Mr. Hunter demanded." Both Williams and Hunter deny the charges.[13][14]
