Known as a "shock jock diva" and "a radio gossip guru," Wendy Williams has had a following in the nation's number one media market, New York City, and across the nation from the time she became a top-rated radio personality and "It Girl" in the mid-1990s. Whether she's doing color commentary for the VH1 Fashion Awards or giving advice on her daily drive-time show on New York's WBLS, her fans know that Wendy's Got the Heat. She's interviewed many of the biggest names in entertainment and is known for her ability to disarm and get them to reveal their secrets. Known also as the "biggest mouth in New York," she is candid as well in discussing her own drama-filled life - including her public struggles to recover from drug addiction, her miscarriages, being forced out of her job, and rehired to a top spot in radio. Her story begins in a conservative middle-class black family in predominately white Ocean Township, New Jersey, far from the glitz and grit of urban and hip-hop culture. Her family sent her to college more with the intention of seeing her become a respected journalist, wife, and mom than launch a successful career in one of the most male-dominated and competitive media industries of all. Now, it's Wendy's turn to talk about herself; a chance to laugh, cry, and reflect on the woman she was to becoming the woman she is now, the "Queen of Urban Radio."
