Talk show queen Wendy Williams has dressed down her look for a new photo shoot for xojane.com. Editors of the site limited Williams to four makeup products for the shoot, which is part of their “makeunder” project.
Williams has always been open to talking about her cosmetic surgeries. Of those that criticize, she uses one word: envy. “They are jealous,” she said. “Because if I said to that person, ‘I got the doctor and I’m going to pay for it. Choose three things you want to do,’ believe me, they would get it done. They are very jealous and scared.”
As for her wigs, which Williams wears to cover her own hair thinned by Thyroid disease, Williams says her personality and profession are a driver in her choice of hair. “I love big hair. Big hair offsets my big body,” she said. “If I was a librarian with a smaller personality, then I would keep the hair that I have.”
Despite the cosmetic surgery and wigs, Williams still thinks there’s something to be said for natural beauty, and she says she’s comfortable with the person underneath her makeup.
“When I get out of the shower, I like what I see,” said Williams.
