While others have come and gone, talk show queen Wendy Williams has ruled the airwaves for nearly a decade.
But far from taking anything for granted, the 53-year-old became emotional as she launched her ninth series on top of the Empire State Building in New York on Tuesday.
The presenter, 53, oozed glamour at top of the iconic building, despite falling victim to the wind.
The talk show host was able to choose what colors to light up the building and opted for pink and purple – her show colors.
Wendy looked sensational in a floor-length burnt orange dress.
The blonde beauty wore her hair in voluminous curls that fell past her shoulders while parted in the middle.
She opted for a show-stopping make-up look that came complete with heavily kohl-lined eyes, long lashes, contoured cheeks and a nude pink lip.
Using a tissue to dab at her eyes, the popular host was then seen smiling with delight as she posed for photographers with her parents.
Wendy’s appearance in the Big Apple came after bikini photos emerged of her in Barbados with her husband.
The photos quickly went viral.
Wendy defiantly hit back at rapper TI after he appeared to shade the star while sharing the pictures.
