Did y'all hear the news? Season 4 of THE WENDY WILLIAMS SHOW has been extended through June and July thanks to all-time high ratings, and talk show host Wendy Williams couldn't be more excited for all the cool things coming up. Not only will audience members have a chance at winning dates with hot single guys in the "Guy Candy" segment, but there will be more A-list guests, more hot topics, and of course, more awesome giveaways.

Unfortunately, we can only watch THE WENDY WILLIAMS SHOW when we're playing hooky from work (which we never do, in case our boss is reading this...), but we had the chance to catch up with Wendy herself after a live taping of her show on May 1.

Wetpaint Entertainment editor Lindsay Dreyer went backstage to Wendy's dressing room (which, by the way, is just as fabulous as you'd imagine), and got all the dish on the talk show host's upcoming projects. These next few months are going to be crazy for Wendy, who not only has a new book coming out, Ask Wendy, on May 7, but will also be starring as Matron "Mama" Morton in Chicago on Broadway starting June 25. (Yes, the same role that Queen Latifah played in the movie version... no pressure!)
