I play a comedian. How did he do that,right? I’m like a combination of a whole bunch of people, you know I’m a little bit of Eddy Murphy, a little Martin Lawrence, a little Chris Tucker, a little Dave Shapelle a little Kevin Heart. I play like a major comedian in my thing and I’m getting married in a day and I have a big movie coming out. Everything that can go wrong, goes wrong on that day.

Aaliyah biopic comments


Williams’ discusses the Lifetime Aaliyah biopic and why the family needs to let it happen.

In my opinion, TV trumps motion picture. As a woman who loves to lay in the house and watch a motion picture, I feel that the family might be a little misguided in the power of box office versus TV. Lifetime will play the movie over and over. TV is the way to get your story told.

Tracy has released a single; it’s called Last Call. In this season you are going to see if the sisters album is going to come to out because we are still filming the season but the album has not come out yet. I hope I am not telling a secret but as we film the show we all realize that we have some issues that stem from our childhood and they are coming to a head.

Rihanna diss

Williams disses Rihanna during an episode of Hot Topics, saying that Rihanna is not the girl you take home to mom.

I don’t think anyone but Chris Brown has been serious about Rihanna cause Rihanna, don’t take this the wrong way because this is an observational observation…Rihanna is like, you hit the skins and scram. I didn’t make that up. She puts it out there. Like Rihanna is not girlfriend material. Am I wrong? Rihanna is the kind of girl she’s hot, she’s sexy. You do her, then you take your penicillin.

Rush is a medical fixer which is a private doctor who takes care of the movers and shakers in LA. He takes care of actors, entertainer, even athletes but these people don’t want their business on the street. They don’t want their medical business public.

I’ll randomly just open a Bible looking for answers and guidance.

Roseanne Barr interview


Williams interviews Roseanne Barr and questions her on show Last Comic Standing, her secret to a long lasting relationship and why she ran for president.

I learned a lot about how our system works and doesn’t work. I came in sixth out of 54. I was only on three ballots too, only three states put me on. The reason I ran is to bring some light to the fact that its very hard to get on the ballot in this free country. If we can’t get the kind of people we want to represent us, you know, we got to change that.

Laverne Cox interview


Williams interviews Laverne Cox and questions her about being a transgender woman and her new show Orange Is The New Black.

Transgender very basically means that the gender you identify as is different than what you were assigned at birth very simple. Transgender people’s experiences are really different. It’s an individual experience, there’s no one blanket transgender experience. It’s really about listening to individuals in terms of who they are and accepting people on their own terms.

Jaime Pressly interview


Williams interviews Jaime Pressly and asks questions about her family, her show Jennifer Falls,  and how her shoe addiction got her a boyfriend.

My boyfriend, he owns a shoe store. I was shopping on 3rd street in Santa Monica with my girlfriends one day where his store is. We walked into the store and there he was in the back. He had just walked out of the back where they keep the shoes and I walked in and he walked in and it was like yeah. I kept buying shoes and I would come back and say do you have these? Like a couple days later, what shoes do you have in my size? Great can you order these and I will come back and get them in three days. Slowly but surely I had just decided everyone would get shoes for Christmas this year.

Kimberly Elise interview


Williams interviews Kimberly Elise and asks questions about her show Hit The Floor, Rihanna’s revealing dress, and the Whitney Houston biopic.

Well I think that she [Rihanna] looks amazing. You know, this is in honor of Josephine Baker. This is very reminiscent of what she would have worn although far more risky. Today is her birthday, she would have been 104. So to me, Josephine Baker did so much for black women in entertainment so if her [Rihanna] wearing this gets us to talk a little bit about Josephine today, more power to her.

Philip Bailey interview

And you know it’s going to be a very small wedding out in East Hampton in the backyard with friends and family. I still don’t know what I will be wearing. I need to get on that, right. You know, I think it might be ivory, that’s a good compromise. I’m very excited about it. I think it’s going to be a great day, a great celebration,

 I have been doing stand up for 30 years. Stand up is sporadic, you go out and talk about this, maybe you want to talk about the Kardashian’s, then you want to hit president Obama. You want to go around. [A one woman show] this is like a story. You have a story in addition to making everybody laugh.

Dolly Parton interview


Williams interviews Parton about her album Blue Smoke, her husband, and her god-daughter, Miley Cyrus,

I have known Miley since she was a baby. I’m really more the fairy godmother. I never really got to spend all the time with her that you usually would. I used to be on her Hanna Montana show — I was aunt Dolly on the show. Miley is going through a lot of changes and we just have to trust her because she is so talented. She is so smart. She just had to be totally drastic because we wouldn’t let her grow up like Shirley Temple we never wanted her to grow up either. But Miley said I had to kill Hanna Montana in order to be Miley.

I graduated college and studied theater did all that stuff. I was happy to wait for a good part well into my 30’s and 40’s. Like that’s okay man I can wait that’s the name of the game. But I get to play this really cool guy on Glee who is kinda in this political social attached to it that I happen to be personally invested in anyway.

If I had it my way, my family would go somewhere on mother’s day so I could just do my own thing. Catch up on my DVR TV and have some alone time. I really could if I really wanted to; my husband is great like that.

Jerry Springer interview


Williams interviews Jerry Springer and asks questions about his new TV series, Tabloid on the ID network.

What I didn’t realize is and what they told me is that you are the audience. Women are the people who watch the ID channel. I have a theory on that because it’s a crime show. It’s a weekly crime show on some of the horrible crimes that have happened over the last 30 years that have made the headlines. I believe that women are fascinated about that because when you are a woman in our society, the fear factor is always there to some degree.

Patricia Heaton interview


Williams interviews Patricia Heaton and asks her questions about her family, guest hosting on The View, and her opinion on the show’s replacement panelists.

Well I don’t know how comfortable a guy would be listening to my friend Whoopi talk about her vibrator. I love Whoopi. It’s an interesting thing, I understand it from a “to keep the show fresh” point of view and change it up a little bit. So it could be interesting but then the other side is the whole point was to have gals being able to give the woman’s point of view.

John Leguizamo interview


Williams interviews John Leguizamo and asks questions about his latest film, Chief. 

It’s ‘Chief’ right, so it’s about a chief. He has a lot of success in LA. He gets very famous but it goes to his head, he gets very narcissistic. So his life starts to fall apart. His wife leaves him and he gets a new girlfriend.

Wendy Williams Show

Tank performs single Your My Star on The Wendy Williams Show to promote his seventh studio album. Tank also explains why he cancelled his show at the L.A. Clippers game.

Well for me it was simple. I’m a black man and I believe that we work too hard and put to much into it. If he doesn’t want us there then we don’t need to be. That’s a check I didn’t need.

Williams interviews Mary Lynn Rajskub and asks questions about her TV show 24. When questioned about how the TV show 24 came back on the air after being off air for four years Rajskub says:

I love how you are suspicious about it. Like how the hell did that happen? I spent the first two years after we wrapped up season eight kinda thinking the movie might happen. A lot of people talked about there’s a movie script out there and then I kinda forgot about it case closed. I went on with my life doing stand up comedy. But I only went on the road for the past two years and then 24 comes back and its like back to the drama put the comedy away.
