Wendy Williams Talks Everything on NPR's 'Tell Me More'

She Now Says She is Living the Life She Always Dreamed Of...

TV talk show show Wendy Williams dished her own dirt recently on the NPR program "Tell Me More" with host Michel Martin. Wendy provides a revelation about the radio industry in the beginning of the interview, that backs up the reason that the majority of the top-notch urban radio personalities are in that age range of near 40 and over 40.

Complaints we've heard in the past from younger and less experienced DJ's in the industry is that the older jocks (Tom Joyner, Ryan Cameron, Greg Street, Funk Master Flex, Big Tigger, Russ Parr ...just to name a few) need to move on and let the younger dj's take over. But there is certainly a reason why younger on-air personalities especially in urban radio see radio in a different way than veteran jocks... which may translate into the older jocks' longevity in the industry.

She also discussed her drug addiction. "I was addicted to cocaine -- crack cocaine. Cooking it, getting it up in the Bronx. This was before cell phones. Waiting just like a real fiend." She added, "Thank God I never got stopped by the cops to shame my family, and myself, and lose my job. Thank God I never got raped — robbed — or killed in an alley. Thank God my heart never palpitated to the point where I was dead in my apartment."

Wendy Williams talked about her new book "Ask Wendy" which is just an extension of her former syndicated radio show 'The Wendy Williams Experience" based at 107.5 WBLS in New York. She's also excited about her upcoming Broadway debut in the musical 'Chicago.' [Listen to the interview below] from NPR.

More news... GMA3 anchors T. J. Holmes and Amy Robach have been fired by ABC after their work affair was deemed a distraction by the network. TMZ, which first reported on their departure, cites network sources who claim they will receive payouts per their contracts. ABC reportedly accused both journalists of various forms of misconduct to justify the firings.

Nick Cannon has walked away from radio for the moment and has decided to end “Nick Cannon Radio” and “Cannon’s Countdown.” The shows were distributed by Skyview Networks and quietly went away in December. He is reportedly set to make a major media announcement in two weeks. Cannon's move necessitated 94.7 The Block (WXBK-FM New York) to hire Cipha Sounds to host middays.

A woman who is believed to be DJ Akademiks' girlfriend slammed a raw egg into his face and walked off angrily as he was live streaming. That's it. Google it. Perhaps it's something that should have happened long ago.
