On the radio with Wendy

This afternoon I spent some time chatting with Wendy Williams on her 107.5FM WBLS radio show, The Wendy Williams Experience. Since nearly all of the 35+ previous radio interviews I've done recently have been via telephone, I was super-nervous -- actually, when I found out we were going to be taking live listener calls, I instantly became more nervous than I was before being interviewed by Diane Sawyer on Good Morning America in May.

Luckily, hanging out with Wendy is like spending time with your smartest, coolest, most gorgeous girl friend ever -- she's so stunning (believe it or not, even more beautiful than her photographs!) and so smart and brilliant at her job. I was so beyond out-cooled (not that I'm cool, but me next to Wendy was like a lumpy grey rock next to a sapphire). It takes a huge amount of charisma and aplomb to do what Wendy does every day on the radio -- speak to 12 million women all over the country, earn their trust, and give them top-notch advice on a million bazillion different topics. I loved being a guest on her show and taking listener calls was so much fun.
