Wendy Williams is a ton of fun when she has beef with someone, as her recent tiff with Bow Wow reminded us all.
Can't you just picture her as a regular fixture on a reality series, laying the verbal smackdown on her hapless costars?
Andy Cohen sure can! Online reports claim he's been begging her to join the next season of Real Housewives of New York City.
Wendy wouldn't be the first person with some name recognition to join the Real Housewives.
Notably, Eileen Davidson and Denise Richards both appeared on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Other big stars such as Nene Leakes became more famous after joining the show.
Wendy could be a really great fit too, when you think about it.
First of all, Wendy's definitely got the temperament for the job.
She speaks her mind and takes no nonsense, but also cries at the drop of a hat.
She's frequently responsible for crazy, meme-able moments on TV.
She loves to celebrate special occasions with over-the-top outfits.
She's also at about the right age and financial bracket, and she would bring some much-needed diversity to the cast.
The possibilty has us excitedly drafting our perfect Real Housewives dream team.
Alas, this seems like yet another case of the Internet getting way, way ahead of itself.
In a recent segment on her talk show, Wendy talked about her plans for her summer break, while addressing the Real Housewives rumor.
"What I won't be doing," she said, is appearing on that series.
Her audience was as disappointed by the news as we were, letting out a collective groan.
"Excuse me?!" Wendy chided the audience.
"I have a purple chair of my own!" she pointed out, gesticulating toward her daytime throne.
"I mean, I like the Housewives and stuff like that," Wendy clarified, "but if you have a talk show that is your own, why would you?"
Okay, good point Wendy. Not only is she already on TV, she's the star of her own show.
If Wendy joined The Real Housewives of New York, she'd give up that control and have to share the spotlight with some other big personalities.
We can see how that would be a downgrade. And she definitely doesn't need the money or the recognition.
Wendy went on to explain that she's too private a person to have the cameras invading her space all the time.
"First of all, youre not coming to my apartment," she said.
And, she continued, "You're not checking out who I date."
"There would be so many 'No, no, no's that you would be bored with me!" she exclaimed.
Of course, Wendy is not a terribly private person. She's been open about her struggles with everything from substance abuse to her dating life.
But Wendy noted that having her own show gives her control over how much of that personal info she wishes to make public.
"I tell you what I want you to know and keep a lot of secrets here," Wendy told her audience.
For what it's worth, Andy Cohen claims he never officially approached Wendy about joining the series, but he liked the idea as much as we do.
"I thought it was a great idea, but I'd never heard that rumor," Andy told Access Hollywood on Tuesday.
"That's never been discussed," he said.
It seems like Wendy would prefer to keep it that way.
"Andy, it's not happening," Wendy declared decisively, "Wendy is not a Housewife."
"As a matter of fact, she's not even a wife!" she pointed out.
Maybe not, but lots of the other gals on the show aren't currently married either.
And we're sure audiences are curious to see how it goes with the new man she's been dating.
But, like Wendy said, we'll just have to wait for her to share more about that on her own terms.
