Moderator Thank you. (Instructions.) One moment for the first question.
Our first question is from Alexa March with popculturemadness.com.
Please go ahead.
A. March Hi, Wendy. Thank you for speaking with us today.
W. Williams Hi, Alexa. Thank you.
A. March I would like to ask you, what made you want to be part of this
W. Williams Well, first of all, I was able to fit it in my talk show
schedule. Thatís usually was the first question I had about taking on
the project. Then, the second thing is, itís an original game show. I
My favorite kind of game show is one that has to do with relationships,
whether it was the old Love Connection or Hell Date, and shows like
that. So, Love Triangle sounded really fun and very organic to the Ask
Wendy segment that I do on my talk show. Thereís a lie detector, which
always starts the party.
A. March Okay. Since the show is about love triangles, what advice can
you give our readers about dealing with love triangles?
W. Williams If youíre in your 20s, I donít necessarily know that you
have to choose in a love triangle. I mean your 20s are for being young,
getting your career going on, having fun within the confines of decency.
I donít necessarily think that women particularly have to feel pressured
to choose in a love triangle, particularly also in their 20s. But,
society says that weíre supposed to be good girls and only juggle one
relationship at a time.
I think once you get into your 30s love triangles need to be pared down
to one person because for a lot of us in the 30s is when you start to
really pick your life mate and the person that you want to be with. By
your 40s, you definitely donít want to live your life in a love
triangle, and so on, and so forth.
So, they are sloppy and they are messy, but theyíre fun. In your 20s,
A. March Okay. Thank you so much for speaking with us.
W. Williams Thank you.
Moderator Question is from Pattye Grippo with pazsaz.com. Please go
P. Grippo Hi, Wendy. Thanks for talking with us today.
W. Williams Hi, Pattye.
P. Grippo So, what can you tell me about truth the buster and howís that
going to play into the advice that you give?
W. Williams Well, I donít tell these people who to choose on the game
show. Iím just merely there to usher along conversation.
The trust buster is a device like a lie detector. Theyíre hooked up to
it. The person who is doing the choosing gets to ask anything that they
want. Do you love me? Have you been faithful to me? Is it true you only
have one child?
In these 32 episodes that weíve done, I think Iíve seen it all,
including people who lie and say they love, but they donít; people who
say that theyíve been faithful and they arenít. Guys get down on one
knee, ask a girl to marry, and she says no. So, thereís nothing like a
P. Grippo And, if you had one in your real life, what would you do with
W. Williams Use it on my son. Heís ten.
P. Grippo Okay, well, thank you.
W. Williams Yes, youíre welcome.
Moderator Our next question is from Nancy Harrington with Pop Culture
W. Williams Okay. Hi, Nancy.
N. Harrington Hi, Wendy, Iím actually here with my sister, Amy. Sheís my
W. Williams Oh.
N. Harrington We want to know, in the description for the show, it says
the personality test covers the areas of money, lifestyle, family, and
W. Williams Yes.
N. Harrington Which area do you think most of the couples are most
W. Williams Lifestyle. Weíve done a short order for GSN, 32 episodes. In
the 32 episodes, Iíve seen where lifestyle is the big iffy. People donít
talk about the most basic things like Iím Jewish; youíre Catholic. I
want to raise our kids Jewish, is it okay with you? And, he says
absolutely not. Iím a vegan; you eat meat. I want to live in a vegan
lifestyle, including future children. Would you?
Lifestyle is a biggie. I drink; you donít drink. You always ask me to
stop drinking, but I wonít. You know.
N. Harrington Right. Whatís the most surprising fact thatís been
revealed about one of the suitors, do you think?
W. Williams Infidelity. One surprise was a guy getting down on one knee,
asking his girl to marry him. She said no. He had a whole engagement
party planned at a venue in L.A. After the show was over, and I went
into my dressing room to disrobe, and I was leaving the lot, he was
sitting on the curb in the street smoking cigarette after cigarette. The
security said oh, yes, heís been out here for a good hour, crying and
N. Harrington Thatís heartbreaking.
W. Williams I know.
N. Harrington Well, good luck with the show. Thanks so much.
W. Williams Thank you very much.
Moderator Next question is from Sammi Turano with TV Grapevine. Please
S. Turano Hi. Good morning. How are you doing?
W. Williams Hi, Sammi.
S. Turano Hi. My first question for you is how do you balance it all? Do
you feel Ė you are in Dancing with the Stars, youíre doing this new
show, youíre on One Life to Live. How do you balance it all?
W. Williams Well, with a lot of help behind the scenes. My staff here at
the Wendy show has been great. Theyíve been very understanding. But, I
do my best not to drop the ball so that it doesnít make it difficult for
them to help me produce the show.
My husband is my business partner and my manager. So, it really does
help a lot that where I go, he goes, and vice versa. So, I donít have a
lot of explaining to do when I come back home. Our son is ten, but he
only knows his mother being in entertainment and daddy being the
manager, so this is regular life to him. Heís a good boy, and a good
student. I couldnít ask for a better situation at home.
Again, in terms of here at the talk show, my over 20 years of radio
experience had helped me be good at what I do here naturally. So, the
producers arenít producing like a piece of wood.
S. Turano Right, right.
W. Williams It really enables me to go up and do other projects like
Love Triangle, which we taped all 32 episodes in about four weekends,
Friday and Saturday, back and forth, back and forth. Then, Dancing with
the Stars, well, Iíve just been eliminated, but between Dancing with the
Stars and this game show project, Iíve only been home three weekends in
S. Turano Okay. What advice do you have for people starting out in their
W. Williams Make sure you have a Plan B because your Plan B in a lot of
cases will be what pays your bills, while Plan A, journalism, works
itself out. Get to know as many people as possible, because you never
know where your big break is going to come.
S. Turano Oh, wonderful. Well, thank you so much and good luck with
W. Williams Thank you. Bye-bye.
S. Turano Bye.
Moderator The next question is from Susan Lanoue with the TV Mega Site.
S. Lanoue Hi, Wendy.
W. Williams Okay. Hi Susan.
S. Lanoue Suzanne. Thatís okay.
W. Williams Oh, sorry.
S. Lanoue Thatís all right. I enjoy watching you on One Live to Live and
I was wondering how that came about and do you think viewers from One Life
to Live will enjoy Love Triangle? It seems like a good fit.
W. Williams I think everyoneís going to enjoy Love Triangle because itís
an evening show. You know it comes on at 7:00 p.m. Itís adult oriented.
For me, I am a 46-year old woman. I hate seeing kids on dating shows
because I donít feel as though itís necessary for kids to make choices.
What I love about Love Triangle is that we have all kinds of people on Ė
50-year olds, 40-year olds, and 30-year olds. Itís juicy and itís spicy
because these are grown people. Itís an evening show and itís an evening
setting. I do think everyoneís going to love the show.
Regarding One Life to Live, that came about because they have a TV show
there called Access Landview. It was right up my alley. Itís like an
Entertainment Tonight show. My name on the show is Phyllis Rose. Iím
simply sitting at my news desk and reading the prompter and reporting on
what Brad and Angelina are doing, and some of the other stars, and, by
the way, bringing down to the Camerons at the same time so the scandal
S. Lanoue ... like you have a lot of fun.
W. Williams Yes. You know what, Iím having a lot of fun. But, Iím a talk
show host first, who gets the chance to do some really wonderful things
on the side, and Love Triangle is definitely one of those things. I
actually enjoyed Love Triangle so much and the work schedule of it that
I could see myself doing this game show, if everything goes well, for
years upon years upon years. I like being a game show host. I never
thought this would come around.
S. Lanoue Well, I hope it works out; you get to do it for years and
years. I know that Dating Game went on for a long time, so maybe this
will be like that.
W. Williams Yes. Thank you.
Moderator Next question is from Melodie Simpson with Hollywood the Right
Way. Go ahead, please.
W. Williams Hi, Melodie.
M. Simpson Hi. Thank you so much for the interview.
W. Williams Thank you.
M. Simpson So, I watch your show every morning with my younger sister,
whoís in high school, but what is the appropriate age range for Love
W. Williams I think that high school is fine. Sheís not going to see
anything on Love Triangle that she wouldnít see on, gee put it this way.
Love Triangle is more decent than Jersey Shore. Iím sure she watches
that. But Love Triangle is an adult dating show. So, she is definitely
too young for it.
GSNís target audience is 18 to 54. But, on Love Triangle, we donít have
18-year olds choosing between two people. We have more like 45-year
olds, and 30-year olds, grown people, which makes it fun because we have
the lie detector and Iíll tell you what. Your younger sister could learn
a thing or two about relationships from watching Love Triangle.
M. Simpson I love the idea of looking into the past, the present, and
the future, and as you mentioned, the lie detector. But, what was your
favorite aspect of the show that grabbed you immediately?
W. Williams The lie detector, the trust buster.
M. Simpson All right.
W. Williams I have dreamt all my life of being able to do something with
a lie detector. I used to want to have one on my radio show, but my
bosses told me it wasnít in the budget. I wanted to have one here on
this Wendy Williams Show, but there was no place to fit one in.
But, I really love everything about it. Iíll be honest with you. I love
the fact that I can Ė Love Triangle is like an offshoot of Ask Wendy.
So, the common thread in my life right now is Iím helping people solve
problems. I love that I can wear more evening attire. I love that itís
three people and one person chooses between two people because thatís a
real life situation. I love that itís a gay thing, itís a straight
thing, itís a black-white-mixed race thing. Itís modern love played out
on Love Triangle.
M. Simpson Well, thank you so much for your time. I love your show, and
I love you.
W. Williams Thanks, Melodie. Bye.
M. Simpson Bye.
Moderator Question is from Latoya West, starsofreality.com. Go ahead,
L. West Hi, Wendy. Thanks for talking to us.
W. Williams Hi, Latoya. Thanks.
L. West Hey. I wanted to ask you, you know you mentioned the soap, the
reality show, now the game show. Is there anything else youíd like to
W. Williams Yes. I would like to have wigs. I would like to have
handbags. I would like to brand myself with merchandise, and not just
any merchandise, stuff that Iím passionate about. Stuff that my fans
already know that I love the wigs. So, itís the most natural thing for
me to have a line of hair. My fans already know that I love decorating
at the house. Iím a crafter. So, itís natural for me to have maybe a
line of home goods somewhere. They know I love shoes and those kinds of
So, yes, the next thing that I would like to do, Latoya, is brand
myself. That would be wonderful.
L. West Great. Now, initially, you put people in the hot seat with the
lie detector and everything. This would be completely different. But,
would you like to have the Dancing with the Stars judges on the hot seat
to question them about your scores?
W. Williams You know what? Iím too busy. Iím over it.
L. West Youíre over it.
W. Williams Iíll be honest with you. Latoya, that was a really fun
opportunity for me to do Dancing with the Stars. Probably the biggest
thing that I learned about myself is Iím still as fearless today as I
was in younger life. Itís been a while since I've had to really
challenge myself with something that I completely just like really.
So, Iím not a dancer and it was fun doing it. I was a good sport about
it. Iím glad that Iím not on it anymore, because my family needed my
attention here. They totally understood. My staff here at Wendy needed
my attention. Iím a business woman also. I just had so many things going
on. I donít regret taking on Dancing with the Stars, but itís good to be
L. West Yes, I bet. Thank you so much.
W. Williams Thanks, Latoya. Bye.
Moderator Next question is from Topher Burns with newgay.net. Go ahead,
T. Burns Hi, Wendy. Thank you so much. Iím looking forward to checking
this out. I think youíre a perfect fit for relationship game shows.
W. Williams Yes, thank you, Topher.
T. Burns You were saying earlier that this is many different types of
people, including gay. I couldnít tell here, but are we going to have
same-sex couples on the show as well?
W. Williams Yes, of course.
T. Burns Do you think theyíre dealing with different problems than with
the other straight couples?
W. Williams No. Love is love.
T. Burns All right.
W. Williams I think one thing is that I think a lot of times with
straight couples youíll find a lot more straight couples who might have
a child involved. Thatís the only thing.
T. Burns Is there any Ė do they get juicier or are we looking at
anything, any different issues than maybe straight couples would deal
with like acceptance with families, or.
W. Williams No, nothing like that. Weíve had gay couples on and there
have been no differences as far as love. You know, love is love. One
thing is that because itís an evening show and itís pointed out our core
audience on GSN, which is 18 to 54, but there are people who admit to
threesomes and foursomes and all kind. Itís juicy; itís juicy.
T. Burns Thatís what Iím looking forward to. Are there any previews you
can give to on some of those same-sex couples?
W. Williams Can you say that again?
T. Burns Can you give us any previews as to what sort of issues weíll be
seeing with those couples?
W. Williams Well, Iíll be honest with you, Topher. We taped all 32
episodes at the end of January and into the middle of February, so a lot
has happened with me since then. I donít really remember specifics. So,
when I watch the show next week, and these 32 episodes, itíll be like
watching for the first time myself.
T. Burns Cool. Well, you and I will be enjoying them at the same time,
W. Williams Thank you, Topher.
T. Burns Thanks.
W. Williams Bye-bye.
Moderator Our next question is from Rachelle Thomas with Right
Celebrity. Please go ahead.
W. Williams Hi, Rachelle.
R. Thomas Hi, Wendy. Thanks so much for taking the time to talk to us.
W. Williams Youíre welcome.
R. Thomas I have just a couple of quick questions. My first one, if you
were describing the show to someone who had never heard of it, how would
you describe it to pique their interest?
W. Williams This is a show about real life situations where one person
wants to choose between two people theyíve been having relations with.
R. Thomas All right.
W. Williams It gets messy and sticky. Weíve got a series of questions in
our lifestyle survey. The questions surround lifestyle, money, and of
course, thereís the lie detector, which we call the trust buster. That
really does get to the bottom of things. In the end, the person makes a
choice. You must leave with only one person, not two.
R. Thomas Okay. Iím excited. I saw the preview. I think it looks great.
Then, my next question would be, I wonder if you could just talk a
little bit about your experience on Dancing with the Stars.
W. Williams It was fun and tedious at the same time. I knew exactly what
I was getting into. Thanks to the Internet, you can Google anything and
figure it out from there. I mean I knew I was going to be practicing for
five hours a day for six days a week initially. Then, it was brought
down to four days of practicing because we were out in L.A. on Monday
I knew that I was going to need tremendous help with the Wendy show, a
little modification of our show days, the tapings, and stuff. I also
knew I was going to lose a few pounds. I knew I was going to be judged
for something that I donít know anything about in front of 40 million
people. I knew Iíd have swollen feet and that whole bit.
So, nothing about the experience surprised me, including being
eliminated early. What I would caution other celebrities when regarding
Dancing with the Stars, be sure that you have a really good support
system around you to help you pick up the pieces where youíre not going
to be able to do things, simple things like if you have children. Youíre
not going to be doing any homework where youíre paying attention to...
So, be aware of that with your partner. Yes, youíre not going to be able
to have as much sex as youíre used to because youíre tired and achy all
the time. With your job, if youíre ... just be sure everybody
understands. Also, most importantly, for yourself, you have to be
emotionally strong. Your own biggest cheerleader because if youíre not
being judged and talked to so harshly, itíll do a number on you.
R. Thomas I can imagine. ... it does a number on you.
W. Williams Yes, yes.
R. Thomas Well, I think you did a great job and I canít wait to see the
W. Williams Thank you. Iím really excited. Thank you so much.
Moderator Question is from Melodie Simpson, Hollywood the Right Way. Go
M. Simpson Hello, Iím back.
W. Williams Hi, Melodie.
M. Simpson So, I want to know is there anything that you were surprised
to learn from the contestants about love in a relationship?
W. Williams Yes. Well, not really surprised, but people just come to the
show and they are very, very honest. What they arenít honest about comes
out in the lie detector. I guess what surprises me is how many people
have all the information laid out in front of them and you still choose
the wrong person. Why? Why did you choose him?
M. Simpson Now, we all know that you have a lot of opinions and have no
problem sharing them, but do you ever find yourself holding back from
saying something because you can tell a certain contestant is either not
ready to hear it or wonít understand it to begin with?
W. Williams Yes, sometimes. Sometimes I do, but not very often. I think
that the part that I have to hold back on, and itís because of the way
the show is designed, I canít tell you which one to pick. After you pick
the one, I canít say you just screwed up. You made the wrong decision.
He doesnít love you. He doesnít even like girls. How about that? You
know what Iím saying.
M. Simpson Oh, yes.
W. Williams Like sometimes, I just want to say heís not that into you.
M. Simpson All right. Well, thank you so much.
W. Williams Youíre very welcome. Bye-bye.
M. Simpson Bye.
Moderator Have a question from Beth Beecham with Hollywood Junket.
Please go ahead.
B. Beecham Hi, Wendy. Itís so nice to talk to you. Thank you for taking
the time out.
W. Williams Thank you.
B. Beecham I really enjoy watching you. I had a couple of questions, if
I can. I notice you and your husband were executive producers on Love
Triangle. Is that correct?
W. Williams Yes.
B. Beecham I was curious what weíll see in the show, I guess thatís
specifically stamped by you guys. I was just curious. I obviously
havenít seen the show yet, but what Iíve ... Sorry.
W. Williams Well, you know the common thread that runs through that show
from my talk show to that one is Ask Wendy, which I do on this show. I
try to help people make the right decisions in their lives. Ask Wendy
was also a part of my radio life prior to even having a talk show. So,
that Love Triangle is people coming to me with help regarding something
really important, and thatís love.
Also, my personality is definitely on the show. I am definitely me, with
the jokes and the judgments, the stern looks, and the laughter. Yes,
yes, I am me. Youíll definitely recognize the same Wendy on Love
Triangle from the talk show.
B. Beecham Okay, great. Iím looking forward to it. Can I ask one more
W. Williams Sure.
B. Beecham Dancing with the Stars. I know that you were working on
another show and youíre going back and forth. Do you feel like you were
at a disadvantage because of that? Were you able to practice while you
were in New York at all on the dance routines?
W. Williams Yes. I did all of my practicing in New Jersey near our
house. Me and Tony actually practiced the five days a week on a regular
basis like everybody else. I mean, there are some people who practiced
eight hours a day. But, those people arenít currently working regular
jobs. But, no.
You know what? Iím not going to blame my scores and being eliminated on
lack of practice, because I gave Tony and that show my all. Flying back
and forth, sure I had jet lag. But, Iím not going to fault that.
When I tell you Iím not a dancer, I really do mean Iím not a dancer.
Tony was teaching a person with two left feet how to dance. I donít
think the judges were fair in the way they scored me. I certainly, based
on my co-dancers, think that I qualified to win Dancing with the Stars.
I donít feel as though I should have been eliminated so soon; however,
Iím glad that I lost, because you know what? Itís nice to be back to
regular life where Iím getting regular sleep, where my feet, which
stayed swollen, and my left hip, which stayed swollen, and my knee,
which stayed swollen. Everythingís subsiding.
Our ten-year old now has his mother and father back home. With my
husband and I, because we do work together, when I leave to go do
something, heís right there with me. Itís tough on our son, but he gets
it and heís smart.
Itís also tough on my staff. Iím not always available in person to talk
to them. I have to be on the phone, or sleeping, or something like that.
But, nothing in my life suffered as a result of the time that I spent
with Dancing with the Stars. In total, I was involved with the project
for six weeks. It was three weeks of rehearsing prior to even being on
TV. Then, I survived three weeks of dancing. I think that was enough.
Iíll be going back though, for the final dance and season finale.
B. Beecham Okay, I look forward to seeing you. I actually had forgotten
I had another question regarding Love Triangle.
W. Williams Okay.
B. Beecham Iím curious when, in your opinion, youíre choosing between
two different relationships with an adult whoís in their 30s or 40s.
What do you think is the key ingredient to making the right choice?
W. Williams Choosing the right person based on your lifestyle. There was
this one woman on the show. Sheís Ė very religious family Ė sheís a
church girl. The guy who she fell in love with owns a sex shop and night
club, both things. So, she wanted to choose him. She wanted to know if
she chooses him, would he give up his two jobs, the ownership of the
club and the sex shop, which were attached to each other, to be with
Iím like, is she out of her mind? Like not for nothing. You donít matter
that much for me to give up my career for you. So, I think that
lifestyle is extremely important. Lifestyle has to do with what career
youíre in and what path youíre on in life. If you eat pork, then you
certainly donít want to be with a vegan. Iím not giving up my pork to be
with you. You know, we should have talked about these things before we
even fell in love.
I just find it crazy that people get so involved with relationships, and
they get so deep in. I mean, we can talk. If youíre a vegan and thatís a
pork eater, then thatís supposed to be a one-night stand or a drive-by.
You were never supposed to look in his eyes long enough to fall in love.
So, it amazes me how deep people get involved in things, and then they
come to Love Triangle and try to sort things out. Itís a really
interesting show. Itís entertaining. And, at the same time, itís very
B. Beecham Okay, thank you, Wendy.
W. Williams Thank you.
B. Beecham Thank you. Bye.
Moderator Next question is from Lisa Steinberg with Starry Constellation
Magazine. Please go ahead.
L. Steinberg Hi, itís a pleasure to speak with you.
W. Williams Hi, Lisa.
L. Steinberg Well, youíre an executive producer; you have so many hats
going on. Youíre a host; you were a dancer. How do you balance it all?
W. Williams Very carefully. Very carefully and lots of moisturizer.
Hereís the thing. Outside of Dancing with the Stars, everything that I
try to do is something that comes natural to me. So, itís less work. I
mean itís a lot of work, but itís less work.
Itís not easy having a talk show. But, for me, organically speaking,
itís very easy to have conversations with people. Itís very easy for me
to do hot topics and be excited about coming out and making it happen.
So, half the job is done if it comes to me naturally.
Hosting Love Triangle is like it was a piece of cake. I love asking
people questions, getting inside their heads. I love laughing with
people and helping them in this relationship situation.
What wasnít easy is Dancing with the Stars. But, I took on that
challenge and everything else was kind of pushed to the back burner for
a moment. I would do it again. I enjoyed it, but Iím glad to be home.
L. Steinberg Why will people want to take their time to tune in and
watch Love Triangle?
W. Williams Because it is an interesting slice of life, in the evening.
When you come home from work and youíre unwinding, itís a sexy little
adult game show on GSN. For me, the funnest game shows are relationship
shows. Love triangles are very commonplace. Iím sure all of us at one
point or another in our lives have been involved with a love triangle.
Gosh, Iím dating both. But, Iím tired of this roller coaster. Who to
choose and who to lose?
L. Steinberg Well, what would you like to say to everybody who is a fan
and supporter of you and your work, and took some time out to vote for
W. Williams How are you doing? I would like to tell them thank you so
much for supporting me on Dancing with the Stars. I hope I didnít
disappoint you too much by having two left feet. But, the good news is
that now Iím free to give my full attention to my hot topics and the
Wendy show and Love Triangle, and the other projects that I have coming
down the pike.
L. Steinberg And, your beautiful family.
W. Williams Most importantly, my family, which helps keep my sanity,
which ultimately brings a smile to my face so I can be a better
entertainer to my fans.
L. Steinberg Great. Thank you so much for your time.
W. Williams Thank you. Bye-bye.
Moderator Next question is from Topher Burns with newgay.net. Please go
W. Williams Topher, youíre back.
T. Burns Iím back, Wendy. I have another question. Like you, I am such a
huge fan of this genre. Relationship shows are like you said, the
juiciest, the hottest shows out there. Talk to me about relationship
shows that you remember from the past, or favorites that you have now,
ones that have inspired you, or ones that you think did it wrong, and
maybe ways youíd like to improve the genre.
W. Williams I canít think of ones that did it wrong. I guess when Roger
Lodge, and I forgot the name of his show. Roger Lodge had one. Then
thereís one on BET called Hell Date, which still come on sometimes like
three oíclock in the morning. Itís a hot mess, but I love it. Of course,
The Newlywed Game, The Dating Game, Love Connection.
T. Burns Do you remember Fifth Wheel?
W. Williams Yes.
T. Burns Or, how about Blind Date?
W. Williams Blind Date was Roger Lodge. I think that was Roger Lodge.
T. Burns Yes, that was the one.
W. Williams I just love these shows, and I think they all get it right,
because to me you canít get a dating show wrong. You get a good host,
with a good personality, a little snappy, able to keep the show moving
along. For our show, we have a studio audience. I refer to them from
time to time. From where nice little visually interesting clothing, a
very clean set, dimly lit for evening.
You immediately know when you turn it on, this is not a daytime show,
itís for evening. Itís for adults. Itís sexy.
T. Burns Awesome, cool. Well, Iím looking forward to it.
W. Williams Thanks, Topher.
T. Burns Thank you.
W. Williams Bye-bye.
