*As long as she’s been in show business, Wendy Williams has seen and heard a lot of things.
So it comes as no surprise that she is well aware of a long-running joke that she was born a man. In light of all the talk, Williams addressed issue surrounding her gender while promoting her new stand-up comedy show, “Lipshtick” in Las Vegas.
“People do think I was born a man. That is absolutely not [true],” the daytime talk show host said. “I get it. I’ve got a strong face, a strong body, I’m 5’11. I wear wigs.”
“There’s no worse way to insult a woman than by saying she looks like a man, but once a woman gets over that, there is no stronger woman,” Williams added.
Regarding “Lipshtick,” Williams mentioned how the show will touch on her tortured childhood and rumors that followed her as an adult.
