The Wendy Williams-Judge Greg Mathis Interview
During her 20+ year career as a radio personality, Wendy Williams earned a reputation for no holds barred interviews that sometimes escalated into major blowups. Today she is the queen of daytime television, but her style is much more tame than she used to be.
Whether she was talking to celebrities about their drug use or sexual proclivities, Wendy Williams’ brash style earned her a broad base of devoted fans and prompted a number of tell-all memoirs. She spoke of her own ten-year cocaine addiction, her date-rape by an R&B singer, abortions, miscarriages, and multiple plastic surgeries.
Her infamous interview with Judge Greg Mathis on WBLS/New York’s “The Wendy Williams Experience” in 2002 gave her a bitter taste of her own medicine. She asked him about a woman he was alleged to have had an affair with and instead he served her a dose of his own messy medicine.
The judge ripped into Williams by asking her about her rumored relationship with him and went in on her for everything from her alleged drug use to her same sex encounters she had in front of her husband. It was a classic showdown that you won’t want to miss!
