Wendy Williams Denies Rumors That She Will Join Real Housewives Of New York

Even though Real Housewives of New York Season 11 just ended, there are already casting rumors about next season. Of course, there have been plenty of “inside sources” with claims that pretty much all of the existing cast members are on the chopping block. Then there are other outsiders who, let’s be honest, probably planted “rumors” that they are “in talks” to be on RHONY to build up some buzz and land a spot on the show.

Recently, rumors started swirling that Wendy Williams would be a part of the cast. As perfect as RHONY is, it could be so interesting to have Wendy in the mix. She says it like she means it. She’s newly single and going out on the town. And she does actually live in New York. Cough cough, Tinsley Mortimer. She could even add some (much-needed) diversity to the cast. Basically, would be a lot of good things to come of this. However, it’s not happening.

During a recent episode of The Wendy Williams show, Wendy denied the rumors. According to TooFab, Wendy said, “I have a purple chair of my own! I mean, I like the ‘Housewives’ and stuff like that, but if you have a talk show that is your own, why would you?” Good point, but why not have two shows?

However, Wendy is not ready to bare it all. She began, “First of all, you’re not coming to my apartment.” Then she said, “You’re not checking out who I date, there would be so many no, no, nos that you would be bored with me!” On second thought, maybe she wouldn’t be the best addition to the cast.

She emphasized that she wouldn’t be “letting [viewers] in that hard” if she ever joined the show. Ultimately, she prefers having her own show because of the “control” she has over what she shares with viewers. She added, “I tell you what I want you to know and keep a lot of secrets right here.”

She concluded, “Andy [Cohen], it’s not happening. Wendy is not a Housewife. As a matter of fact, she’s not even a wife!” But neither are the current cast members.
