Syndicated talk show host, Wendy Williams is about to take on The Buchanans! That’s right, as we reported back in January, Williams is taking on the role of fictional gabfest host, Phyllis Rose on the fictional Access Llanview! Williams appears next week on the Wednesday March 2nd episode of One Life to Live. In fact, it went so well the producers asked her back a return visit to the series which will air on March 28th.
Wendy Williams told Soap Opera Digest in the latest issue about her experience, “I get my hair and makeup done over at the TV studio, which is a daunting enough task, but to be an actress, with Viki and the Buchanans? I’ve been watching since I was a kid. My role as Phyllis is turning the town upside-down. Although I play a reporter on the show, Phyllis is not me! She’s mean-spirited, but she’s really dishy and it’s fun to play her.”
So will Williams gig at OLTL end up being more than just a March affair? Stay tuned.
