Talk show host Wendy Williams recently conducted an interview with CBS. The star, widely known for her phrase “How you doin’,” talked about everything from motherhood to her new line of accessories.
All about Adorn accessories.
“I’m so excited – it’s finally here! It’s been about a year in the making. I’ve partnered with QVC, I have a great design team, and a whole lot of ideas in my head that needed a lot of creative people to help me out. The line is bold. I’m working with various stones and metals, as well as various lengths. It is costume jewelry, but it’s good costume jewelry. One of the things I love about working with QVC is that they’ve always stood for quality, value and customer service. I’ve been a customer of them for years. I’d like to think my line is ageless. I’ve certainly asked enough women of various ages what they feel about the pieces. Everyone from my mother who’s in her 70’s, to my niece who’s in her 20’s, I have a sister in her 50’s and I’m 47. I named the line Adorn because we all go up and down in weight and we all get older. But if you do it right, your accessories are the one thing that won’t turn their backs on you. They’re your adornment! The difference between the same black dress that you have on and the girl across the room has on is how you adorn. Which watch did you wear? Which handbag? So my line is a labor of love, but it’s also a necessity!”
Motherhood and its perks.
“I was a lunatic when I first became a mother. I would say to myself: What in the world, how do you do this, the breastfeeding thing is so hard, will I ever lose the weight, what’s going to become of my career, why am I even thinking about my career that’s so selfish of me? Now 11 years later, I’m the best possible mother that I can be. My own mom says that I’m a good mom and that does mean a lot.”
About Kevin’s fashion sense.
“He is into fashion, but guy fashion like Jordan sneakers and things like that. But what does he think? He loves it! He loves that I’m creative and that I have various interests. He loves that I love other things, and not ‘just’ being his mom. He likes to see me creating and doing things. He does give his opinion on things here and there. I’m always test-running things.”
Another baby on the way?
“My last egg is dried up, are you kidding me?! I was on bed rest to have little Kev. And I’ve had several miscarriages – two of them were at 5-months and they were both girls. So one day, when I get to the crossroads of life, I’ll have two girls waiting for me.”
