Wendy Williams is out here shopping a tell-all interview about her divorce, son’s recent arrest and her battle with addiction. She has her eyes set on veteran journalist Gayle King, but she wants no part of it.
Read on to see why Gayle King Snubs Wendy Williams…
CelebNMusi247.com reports that Wendy Williams reportedly thought King was the perfect media personality to spill the tea, but the CBS anchor considers Wendy’s personal drama “a little too trashy for morning TV.”
When it comes to veteran journalist Gayle King has snubbed the talk show diva over a tell-all interview.
According to reports, Wendy Williams has been hitting up the major TV networks, including Oprah’s OWN, ABC and NBC, for a prime-time slot to tell her salacious story.
King was previously praised for her explosive interview with embattled singer R. Kelly in March. Williams was hoping to make similar headlines with her emotional story. Instead of embracing Wendy, she is the first big name to turn her down.
Now that Wendy Williams is finally divorcing her cheating husband and former manager, Kevin Hunter, she wants to capitalize on her marital woes. Insiders claim her demand for an hour-long primetime slot has been a major turn off for big-name hosts.
The Daily Mail revealed that one network source said:
Her people want either a morning show or an hour-long prime-time special, they want Wendy to sit down with a big name anchor and Gayle King was at the top of the list. But she turned it down, it’s not clear exactly why but there’s a lot of talk that Gayle thought sitting down with Wendy, dredging over her car crash personal life, might be a little too trashy for morning television.
The source added:
GMA anchor Robin Roberts over at ABC seems the keenest, she reached out to Wendy in March when she announced she was staying in a sober house. But nothing has been locked down yet, Wendy is keen to explore all her options, who knows which way it will go.
