A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Williams often "gay" as an insult, repeatedly calling other stars gay and euphemistically asking callers if they're gay. Part of the fawning culture of celebrity.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
Almost every conversation Williams has is imbued with sexual innuendo, and she "helps" callers with their sexual dysfunctions. She grills celebrity guests about their sex lives, and her sidekick has made masturbation-related comments in regards to stars' pictures. References to body parts.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this talk show-reality TV hybrid brings shock jock Wendy Williams' raunchy radio broadcasts to TV. Her shows include chats with celebrities in which Williams dissects their sex lives, as well as a question-and-answer period in which listeners with sexual issues call in for her advice. Voyeuristic and shallow, the show doesn't really offer anything worthwhile for viewers of any age.
Is It Any Good?
Avid listeners of Williams' radio show will undoubtedly enjoy seeing the host interact with her guests, rather than just imagining it. But those expecting a celebrity-focused gossip show will be sorely disappointed. Williams' shtick is often too crude to be funny, and the constant sex talk means that this is definitely one for mature viewers only.
Need examples? Here's a rundown of part of just one episode: First, Williams talked to rapper Ice-T and his wife, Coco, who was promoting her new semi-nude calendar. As Williams flipped through the pictures, her sidekick, Charlemagne, commented "I would masturbate to that." Later on, a male caller who'd been sleeping with his stepfather asked Williams what he should do about the situation, and another listener called to say that she was contemplating cheating on her boyfriend because, as Williams put it, he had a "puny penis." In the last segment, Williams introduced Phat Farm designer Russell Simmons, who's separated from his wife but still sees her regularly, and asked him if they're still having sex.
Did we miss something on diversity?
