How you doin’? You know who’s doing great? Wendy Williams. Deadline reports that Lionsgate TV has renewed Wendy Williams’s “personal services” contract for seven years, with it running until the year 2022. They haven’t officially renewed The Wendy Williams Show, but the producers obviously consider it a done deal. “Wendy has become a major force in daytime talk and we are thrilled to know she will be dishing out her daily dose of hot topics and entertaining conversations on ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ for many years to come,” said the producers. That means Williams, who started her daytime talk show when Beijing hosted the Summer Olympics (2008), will still be on air when Beijing hosts the Winter Olympics (2022). Blue Ivy will be starting her rebellious adolescence, Kanye will be president, and we’ll still be waiting for that damn Frank Ocean album. What a time to be alive.
