Okay, I never thought THIS would happen, but TV talk show host, Wendy Williams, is going to be starring on Broadway in the musical hit “Chicago.” She will be playing Big Mama Thorton, which is the same role that Queen Latifah was nominated for an Oscar for in the movie.
She will be performing in the play this summer, and her role will go for seven weeks, according to The Hollywood Reporter. This will be the first time she has been on Broadway. She appeared on “Dancing With the Stars” last year.
Williams teased that she had a major announcement coming, calling it “totally out of my wheelhouse” and “you would not expect me to do it.”
You are right about that! No shade, but I never thought Wendy would be able to carry a tune in a bucket! Much luck to her, because I know those Broadway reviews can be brutal as they spare no one. But who knows? She actually might knock ‘em dead.
Will you go see Wendy Williams in “Chicago”?
