Talk Show Favorite Wendy Williams to Join Broadway's Chicago

Well, Joel McHale is going to have a field day with this on The Soup.

By New York City

It was inevitable and yet somehow we never suspected. Wendy Williams, of The Wendy Williams Show and The Soup fame, will be joining the cast of Chicago on Broadway from June 25-August 11. Chicago plays at the Ambassador Theatre and features direction by Walter Bobbie. Williams will be taking on the role of prison matron Mama Morton.

Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media, and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago's slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines.

The brash Wendy Williams worked as a "shock jockette" on several radio shows before gaining her own oft-harassed syndicated talk show, The Wendy Williams Show. She is known for her special brand of candor, spats with celebrities, and the catchphrase "How you doin'?"

Now we can only hope Joel McHale (Williams' nemesis on E's The Soup) will take on the role of Billy Flynn.
