Cop a gander of Wendy Williams!

The talk-show maven features a-front of the May issue of Ebony magazine and looks all sorts of lush.

Within her  feature, the 50-year-old former shock-jock reinforces her lack of love for the traditional trappings of Hollywood, yet also adds:

“Sometimes I feel a little guilty, like there is going to come a time when all of this isn’t going on and I’m going to regret not lunching at Michael’s with the celebrity girls. But right now, this feels great.”

As recently reported, Williams – who celebrated the 1000th episode of the ‘Wendy Williams Show’ last year – was recently nominated for two Daytime Emmy Awards. The show, which is now in its seventh season, routinely outperforms the likes of ‘Ellen’ and ‘The View.’

More power to her.

As if the Lifetime-lent Aaliyah biopic that aired Saturday night didn’t ruffle enough feathers by itself, producer Wendy Williams’ response to the backlash didn’t exactly help.

Taking to her top-rated talk show this morning to scoff at naysayers who slammed the film’s casting and overall production, Williams was quoted saying:

“Everybody’s got an opinion.  Whether you loved or hated it, you watched [because] it was the second highest rated movie on all of cable this year so far.”

At the time Wendy made the statements, no receipts had surfaced to substantiate her claim.  This has since changed.  Tuck in below to see how the movie not only a win for Wendy, but for Lifetime as well as it dominated television, but Nielsen Twitter ratings as well:

wendy-williams-aaliyah-biopic-thatgrapejuice

The net was set ablaze over the weekend following the airing of Lifetime‘s critically panned Aaliyah biopic.

A volcano of opinions populated social media after the airing of ‘Aaliyah: Princess Of R&B’, with the lava of anger still spilling over today.

Notable in her silence, though, was the project’s executive producer Wendy Williams.

Needless to say, the masses have made clear that they disapprove.

Wisely choosing to address the matter on her show today (see: ratings), Williams defended the flick and cited its major ratings as the true indicator of its success.

See what she had to say below…
