Toine360 exclusively reports that Wendy Williams is getting her own Madame Tussauds wax figure in the iconic museum’s New York location. The daytime talk show host’s figure is set to arrive in 2020.
“Wendy has a longstanding career in entertainment and has built a devoted fan base which made her a highly requested figure at the star-studded attraction,” a spokeswoman for Madame Tussauds said in a statement. “The national treasure joins fellow veteran TV hosts Oprah Winfrey, Jimmy Fallon & Al Roker further solidifying her place as a pop culture icon.”
The 55-year-old’s wax figure is just the latest honor she’s received this year, as she finally got her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in October. While receiving the coveted honor, Williams addressed her rocky year in light of her ongoing divorce from estranged husband Kevin Hunter.
“The elephant in the room is that I’ve been having a very, very tough year,” Williams admitted the crowd, “but, slowly but surely, I’m climbing out of the pit and this is one of those monumental days that makes me say, you know, if you don’t believe in yourself who will believe in you? Sometimes life is a very lonely path and you’ve got to make some hard decisions.”
