Wendy Williams' extremely successful talk show is getting ready to enter its sixth season, but on July 18, the TV personality will embark on a brand new chapter in her life!
And the self-dubbed "Queen of All Media" isn't worried one bit about turning the big 5-0! "I feel great — 50 is not your mother's 50 anymore," she declared during a visit to the Today Show.
"It's not just me," the actress continued. "It's women like Hoda (Kotb); it's women who've turned 50 years ago…like Demi Moore and Heather Locklear and Vanessa Williams," she shared, adding, "It's not old. It's just the beginning!"

And while Wendy has "a couple of huge parties" planned for the occasion, she also has a short bucket list of items she hopes to complete, one of which she'll be able to check off this Friday in Las Vegas!
"One of the things that I’ve always wanted to do…I’ve been told that I’m funny, so I’ve always wanted to do stand-up," the author revealed to Savannah Guthrie.
"And I have a thing for comedy clubs and so I was invited by the Venetian to participate in something that they’re doing, called 'Lipshtick.'" Wendy will perform as one of their visiting comedians, performing a routine on July 11.
We can't wait to see what else the bubbly host has on her list! Check out her interview below!
