Wendy Williams’ star will shine even brighter when she becomes one of the latest recipients of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The daytime talk show host was announced as one of several celebs who will be honored at the 2020 event. According to E! News, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce’s Walk of Fame Selection Committee announced the full list on Thursday. For the daytime television section of the honor, the Wendy Williams Show host will join Dr. Phil McGraw and Today host Kathie Lee Gifford. Other honorees will include actors Chris Hemsworth and Mahershala Ali, and actresses Julia Roberts and Octavia Spencer.
“This year’s choices were particularly unique. We were able to recognize the talents of 35 artists who have already built a legacy here in Hollywood,” remarked Selection Committee Chair and Walk of Famer Vin Di Bona. “Also, we were able to celebrate many new talented artists who’ve touched our hearts in film, television, radio and a variety of musical categories.”
Williams’s recent honor comes after a tumultuous year for her. The former radio personality is currently going through a divorce from her husband, Kevin Hunter, after 22 years. The exes have one child together, Kevin Jr., 19. Williams filed for divorce from Hunter back in April after he was accused of fathering a child with his longtime mistress.
