How you doing "Mama"? Talk show host Wendy Williams made her Broadway debut at Matron "Mama" Morton in the musical "Chicago" on Friday. And with a multi-year renewal of her show and other ventures popping up for her, chick's career is on fire.
Joined by her son Kevin Jr. and husband Kevin Hunter at her afterparty, the Ask Wendy author kicked off a limited engagement the other day that will last thru August 11.
During the afterparty, Wendy was congratulated by her adorable parents and co-star Paul Vogt. She later thanked all her fans and followers on Instagram saying, "Thank you to everyone who came to see me on my opening night. Thank you to the @chicagomusical family and to the #broadway community for welcoming me to the #GreatWhiteWay. #howyoudoinmama"
And in other major moves news:
"Yung Rapunxel" rapper Azealia Banks made one of the biggest moves of her career when she hit the stage at the 2013 Glastonbury Festival last night. In front of one of the largest crowds of her career, she thanked the audience for their support and marveled at going all the way from the "212" to Glastonbury.
Joined by two background dancers, she did her entire set with no "hype" man. She also debuted her upcoming single "ATM" featuring Pharrell (though he didn't appear).
Watch Azealia's FULL SET below and listen to "ATM" featuring Pharrell at (40:50):
Azealia's Insterscope album debut is still awaiting a release date. Glad to see she's finally chilled out with the Twit beefs and is now focused on these major moves...
