My original Wendy listeners, here in New York, they grew up with me. They come up to me all the time and say, ‘Oh, I have been listening to you since I was 12.’ I feel proud. I am glad that I have been able to evolve….I am so glad that I can still be that girl, but on TV. Yes! Who I am right now is exactly who I was on radio. The difference is, now I am 49 years old. There are certain things that I had beaten to death. I had to move on. These other little girls in radio can now imitate me. I am not going to sit in that purple chair and act like I am MediaTakeOut.com! I invented MediaTakeOut.com. I was doing that long before it existed. But, I was not raised like that.
On meeting her husband, Kevin Hunter:
I first met Kevin almost 21 years ago. He was a good person, raised in not so good conditions. While his type was not what I was raised to bring home, I really liked him. Maybe the Martin Luther King, Barack Obama type isn’t for everybody…He is my manager, co-executive producer of the show and my biggest productive cheerleader. I love him.
On her husband’s relationship with their son, Kevin Jr.:
I love that he has his father. It’s a great thing, a black boy and his black father. Yes, it is. But we teach him he is public enemy number one and his job is to dispel that. Sometimes, I will stand at our front door and watch Little Kev and his father drive off until I see the last puff of smoke from the car’s exhaust. Then, I say to myself, ‘It’s good.’
If she’d ever have Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs on her TV show, after having beef with him during her radio days:
If I had a problem with you in the past, chances are I have moved on. I have a good life. My parents have seen me go from a loser to a winner. Most people don’t have the luxury of their parents seeing them come full circle. I feel sexy and I feel very accomplished. I have my family. I am grateful. And if Puffy did come on my show, he would have to remove those damn sunglasses.
