Television host Wendy Williams recently revealed that she had pitched herself to join the cast of the popular reality show “The Real Housewives of New York City” (RHONY), but talks with the show’s producer, Andy Cohen, “didn’t go anywhere.”
Williams, who is known for her outspoken personality and controversial opinions, made the revelation during an interview on her talk show, “The Wendy Williams Show.” She stated that she had approached Cohen about joining the cast of RHONY, but that he had ultimately decided not to move forward with the idea.
According to Williams, the talks didn’t go anywhere because Cohen was concerned that she wouldn’t fit in with the other women on the show. She also noted that her schedule, which includes hosting her talk show and other business ventures, may have been a factor in the decision not to move forward with the idea.
Despite the setback, Williams remained optimistic, stating that she would still be open to joining the cast of RHONY in the future if the opportunity presented itself. She also expressed her admiration for the show and its cast, stating that she was a big fan of the show and had even attended one of its tapings in the past.
The news of Williams’ interest in joining RHONY has sparked mixed reactions among fans of the show, with some expressing excitement at the prospect of her joining the cast, while others have expressed skepticism about whether she would be a good fit.
Regardless of the outcome, Williams’ pitch to join RHONY highlights the ongoing popularity of reality television and the desire of many celebrities to participate in these types of shows. It also underscores the importance of casting decisions in these shows and the challenges of finding the right personalities to fit in with existing casts.
