Wendy Williams loves her form-fitting ensembles and collection of wigs, but when XO Jane convinced the talk show host to have a make-under, they decided to bring Williams' showy style down a couple notches and give her a more "honest" look. For the photo shoot, Williams wore an oversized turtle neck before donning a white crew neck tee with a pair of jeans.
Her makeup consisted of a little foundation and blush, mascara, and just the slightest touch of lip gloss. Williams revealed that she never shows off her real hair (a thyroid has thinned out her natural hair) and instead has a collection of wigs she wears - even when she goes to the gym. Hairstylist Antwon brushed out the waves on one wig and then pinned the hair back for a softer look.
"I love big hair. Big hair offsets my big body. The bigger the hair, the smaller the hips," she said. "Plus I have a small head. As a big girl, you can end up looking snowmanish. Which is why I don’t wear a lot of short hair unless it’s teased out gigantically."
Along with her thoughts about her diet, bras, and juggling motherhood and work, Williams openly talked about plastic surgery and why people are so judgmental about it.
"They are jealous," she said. "Because if I said to that person, 'I got the doctor and I’m going to pay for it. Choose three things you want to do,' believe me, they would get it done. They are very jealous and scared. Scared of what their other friends would say, or to break out of the box and be different. And being Black? Ugh, please. My people will not go for any kind of surgery. We are supposed to be natural. Ugh, whatever."
