Customer Reviews

At least she admits to getting plastic surgery - but I'm not sure the surgery does her any justice.
BookRemarks
She's survived some serious whiplash from divas like Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston as caught word-for-word in her tell-all book.
A YOUnity Guild Book Club
Overall, the Wendy William's Experience is a well written book, entertaining, truthful, and one of Wendy's best literary works.

Format: Hardcover
SUMMARY: Outrageous radio personality Wendy Williams recounts some of her more colorful interviews, as well as offering her opinions on hip-hop celebrities and their baby mamas, in this witty and raucously funny tell-all/semi-autobiography.

WHY YOU'LL LIKE IT: Think of Williams as the ghetto fabulous female equivalent of Howard Stern: she asks the questions you really want the answers to, and nothing is sacred. She's utterly fearless and tactless. The section on Baby Mamas is great, but her coinage of "Negroidian" almost made me wet myself, as did her commentary on the "dirty backpack clique." Good stuff.

WHY YOU WON'T: As refreshing as her guilelessness and lack of pretense is, it sometimes borders on obscene and can become tiring. It's one thing to be tactless in some ridiculous situations, but to take pride in and practice it in ALL situations is annoying. Also, she has some real juicy tidbits about some celebrities, revealing absolutely everything...but their name. Of course it's due to legal reasons, but it is so FRUSTRATING! Have fun guessing, though.

BOTTOM LINE: It's just a heck of a book! Quick read and very funny. This is not going to win awards, and why another reviewer felt the need to preface their commentary by stating that this is not "Alice Walker or Alex Hailey" is beyond me. Of course it isn't, and no one expects it to be.

If you're a fan of Wendy and her show, then you knew that this book was coming and you knew what it was going to be about. Chock full of "gossip," Ms. Williams does a great job of putting her radio show to print. Readers will be pleased to know that all of Wendy's favorite topics are covered; from Baby Momma Drama to "How You Doin'?....." Some of Wendy's most controversial interviews are covered in the book, but I found the most interesting to be the one with Misa Hylton-Brim--Puffy's first "baby momma."

I liked the book and it was certainly a quick read, but solid Wendy fans like myself may be somewhat disappointed; you will find most if not all of what is covered within the pages to be regurgitated information. BUT--if you missed the MHB interview, you'll find it here. If you missed World's perspective on homosexuality and the music industry, you'll also find that here. And if you are one of the few remaining people on earth who did NOT hear that ridiculously raw Whitney Houston interview, all is not lost---Wendy has included it here also.

Looking forward to the next book, Wendy (will there be one?)...; but PLEASE reserve some of your future juicy gossip just for the book. That way your regular fans will get some new "scandalosity" between its pages also.

Format: Hardcover
Wendy Williams is a New York Times Best Selling Author of "Wendy's Got the Heat," a #1 Essence Bestseller and host of "The Wendy Williams Experience" Radio Show. She has returned without warning to seer through the popularity of 72 Hour Hold by Bebe Moore Campbell, The Interruption of Everything by Terry McMillan and Confessions of a Video Vixen by Karrine Stefans with her latest, The Wendy William's Experience: Queen of Radio.

It is a "CELEBRITY GOSSIP- PACKED" book from a self-made multi-media celebrity icon in the radio industry whose on air personality may have evolved to form a brand of talk show radio all her own, quite historical, bold and necessary.

In her 2nd book, she's bringing candid issues to the forefront as a voice of "the people," along with relationship tips for the ladies who look up to Wendy as a big sister. Wendy talks about everybody. Wherever you are in Celebrity-ville, it seems like Wendy has found you.

Based on her prior book, it seems like many radio hosts would like to take her place, but the reigning and pioneering "Shock Gossip Diva" who holds down some of the most charismatic and memorable one-to-one celebrity interviews that everyone seems to be tuning in to listen to lately reflects on the necessity of her national radio show for developing celebrity careers and validates the fact, "It's better to be in the news, than not in the news at all" in her latest.

Despite some of the vehement backlash on the air from top celebrities during her radio interviews featured in the book, Wendy Williams doesn't seem to be the one throwing the verbal punches if you read every single interview transcript in her book.

Format: Hardcover
Someone gave this book to me as a birthday present, because she knows that I like to read (bless her heart). I always do my best to never look a gift horse in the mouth, but I consider even finishing this book quite an accomplishment for myself, because a) I detest gossip, and b) I am a firm believer that someone else's personal business is no business of mine (unless it's in some way illegal and/or bringing harm to others), even if that someone is famous.

We as a society have officially arrived at the point where it's perfectly okay to be a bold-faced hypocrite, so long as you admit to being such. Sad? I believe so. And while you're at it, mark me down as being in the category of people that believes that Williams (as she states in her foreword) reflects the worst of what we as human beings, have to offer. "Don't get me wrong, though. As much as I love the scandals, there is a part of me - the very human part of me - that is saddened by our lust for it..." Yeah, sure. I'll bet that "very human part of you" always manages to surface while you're in line at the bank, too. But never mind my personal feelings...

I give this book two stars, purely on the strength of chapters 8 (Baby's Mamas) and 10 (The Dirty Backpack Clique). In these two chapters, Williams says some things that many young people in this country (and probably the bulk of her listening audience) need to hear. Other than that, I hate the fact that a perfectly good tree had to DIE for this. But don't misunderstand...I think the book is (for the most part) trash because of the fundamental concept behind it, much more so than anything written in it.
