Talk show host Wendy Williams jumped at the chance to be on season 12 of ABC's Dancing with the Stars. But she had to keep it secret until the official announcement last night. And that meant lying to anyone who asked -- even legend Aretha Franklin. When Wendy interviewed Aretha on Feb. 25, "she asked me about Dancing with the Stars," Wendy tells Life & Style. "I had to lie to The Queen! I wanted to say something, but Dancing with the Stars is such a big secret I just couldn't. So when I see her I have to apologize!"
But she's pretty sure she'll be forgiven. "I asked her, 'If I did do Dancing with the Stars, would you come on and sing?'" Wendy tells Life & Style. "And she didn't say no!"
Wendy's interview with Aretha airs on The Wendy Williams Show tomorrow, March 2 (visit wendyshow.com for local listings), and check out her column every week in Life & Style!
