Wendy's Got the Heat.
After nearly two decades dropping sizzling no-holds-barred celebrity scandal on East Coast airwaves, and with the recent premiere of a new cable television show, Wendy Williams has a new tell-all autobiography that candidly details the story of her life, beginning with growing up in a conservative middle-class family.
From her early adulthood, the New Jersey native confronts personal and professional challenges head on: going off to college in Boston and jetting off to the Caribbean for her first professional job. Williams brutally chronicles a lifestyle that jeopardizes her success and her life before making crucial life-altering decisions.
Longtime listeners avid for off-mike information on Williams's various celebrity feuds will be disappointed, but it's a humanizing backstage peek at a well-known figure.
