Live from New York City, it’s the Wendy Williams Show. ♪ Oh, yeah ♪ ♪ Feel, feel, feel it ♪ ♪ Feel, feel it, it, feel it ♪ ♪ Feel it, feel it, feel it ♪ ♪ Let’s go, come on, you need it ♪ ♪ How you doin’ ♪ How you doin’? Now here’s Wendy! (audience cheers)
(upbeat music) Ooh-ooh! Ooh-ooh! Ooh-ooh! ♪ How you doin’ ♪ Ooh-ooh! (audience cheers) Thank you for watching our show. Say hello to my cohost, my studio audience. (audience cheers) How you doin’? How you doin’? I’m doin’ okay today, let’s get started. It’s time for Hot Topics, come on. (audience cheers)
(rhythmic music) I wake up this morning, I’m minding my own business, I turn on the TV, and it’s all about Ben Affleck. Every single channel is talking about his biggest regret. I knew what it was even before I saw the story. They’re trying to tease it with a commercial break. I’m like, let me guess, messing over Jen Garner. And then they come back from commercial, and that’s what it is. So he gave an interview to “The New York Times”, and they split back in 2015. They’ve got three children together, seven, 11, and 14. That’s a really sticky age for children to have to deal with their mom and dad and being divorced and stuff like that. I’m not saying that the parents shouldn’t have gotten divorced if it wasn’t working out. I’m just saying I don’t even wanna know that’s his biggest regret. ‘Cause in my mind, of course it is. Other than leaving Jennifer Lopez. I still like Jennifer. (audience laughs) I still like them together, but I want Jen to get back with my man. Marc Anthony?
Marc Anthony. Yup, yup. (audience applauds) But she and A-Rod are good, so I’m fine with that. Anyway, back to the other Jen. He says that he regrets drinking heavily at a time in their marriage. And she’s telling him, you’re a bad husband, you’re a bad father, you’re coming home late, what are you doing, you’re falling out of places. Do we have the picture of him in the backseat? She’s in the front seat and here he is. (audience exclaims)
Okay? She’s driving and he’s back there slumped. And they got the three kids. A 14-year-old is old enough to be home from school, ’cause it’s still President’s week. I still don’t understand why President’s is a whole week. (audience laughs)
You know what I’m saying? I thought it was honoring presidents on one day, and then a bunch of sales on mattresses, couches, and cars. (audience laughs) (audience applauds) I don’t really understand that, but anyway, so what are the kids doing for the whole week? Are they actually learning about presidents? Are they actually doing anything other than, the eight-year-olds sneaking and watching the Miss Wendy Show? (audience laughs) You know what I mean. Anyway, I don’t think that he necessarily wants to get back together by saying this. I would never get back together with him if I were her. She is now with a formidable boyfriend. He’s a multi-millionaire. And his name is John Miller, that’s John. I don’t know what John does, except for her. (audience laughs)
I don’t know. (audience applauds) But okay, fine. In the meantime, speaking of marriage, Nick Cannon says he never wants to get married again, he’s done. (audience exclaims) He was on “Entertainment Tonight”, he said, if you jumped out of a plane one time and it didn’t work out, you won’t do it again, would ya? (audience laughs) He says, I barely survived, why would I jump out of a plane again? Well you wanna know what? I really want him, in my mind, in my mind, to get back together with Mariah Carey. (audience cheers)
In my mind, in my mind. I didn’t believe that relationship when it first started. I was on the radio and I was the one like, get out of here, this is not really real. Mariah’s a woman, she’s with a boy and the whole bit. But as time went on, and then they had the children, and then I could see how, like, (groans). Uh-huh, I want them to get back together. (audience cheers) I do. In a marital way, but he says he’ll never get married again. But you know what? You can never say never. As my marriage was crumbling, I knew in my mind, and now I’m finally divorced. I want to get married again, and I am not hiding yet. (audience cheers)
I do, I do. I don’t know when it’ll happen. I’m dating and you know, I know, you know. (audience cheers) But, and not right now do I wanna get married again, ’cause I thought I wanted to get married again by the summer, but no. (audience laughs) But no, well no, there are qualified suitors, believe me you, believe me you. But here’s the thing. No, now I just kinda wanna dip it and do it. (audience laughs) I’m enjoying being single, but in my mind, I wanna get married. Now, if I never get married again, then at the very least, I want a life partner, you know? A man who, he’s my partner. I don’t want you to buy me things, my son doesn’t need a stepdad, nothing like that. But this is what, Nick is talking how George Clooney talked when he, ’cause George was married years ago. And now George is married again to Amal. In between divorcing the first woman and meeting Amal, he said, I’m never gonna get married again. And he was a real grown frat boy. Running around with the dos migos vodka, and– (audience laughs) Having that place over in Italy with the gorgeous gondolas and stuff. And now they’ve got two-year-old twins and he’s married again. So in life, sometimes you can never say never about certain things, you know, about certain things. (audience applauds) That’s all I’m saying, Nick, you can never say never. Aw. Oh, Mariah. (audience laughs) I know she’s with a background dancer, but that’s not– (audience exclaims) She’s gonna get tired of telling him what to do. (audience laughs) And a man who doesn’t have a horse in the race, you know what I’m saying? When you’re a powerhouse like Mariah, you need somebody who’s gonna power back at you sometimes. Somebody who’s gonna say, sit down! Every once in a while, girls, you need a sit down. (audience laughs) ‘Cause you know how we pop off. (audience laughs and applauds) Anyway, so Jenna Dewan and her new man are engaged. Aw.
Yeah. Well they’re pregnant, she looks beautiful. His name is Steve, and they’re expecting their first child in the spring. And Jenna recently finalized her divorce from Channing Tatum. Channing has moved on to a young lady. Jessie J. Jessie J, right. (audience exclaims) So they’re using, Jenna and, excuse me, Jenna and Channing. Oh, who, Jenna and Channing Tatum, right. That’s what I said. (audience laughs) But you paused and I was like, where you going with this? I thought you were still talking about Steve Kazee.
I’m trying to push a burp down. (audience and Norman laugh) It’ll probably come up later on in the show. (laughs) I’m trying to digest my delicious meal. Right. (laughs) Of kale. Mm. (laughs) I like the same things all the time. I wear my food out. It’s the same kale salad with all the olives and stuff, and delicious dressing that I had for breakfast. It was leftover from yesterday. Braised beef, but pulled, so it’s like, braisey. No bones. Braised beef and pasta. You walked in my office, you said it smells like a restaurant in here. Only to hear Merrell scream. Yes, (laughs) in the background. Let me tell you something. I’m not gonna say one word, but yup, it’s going down, (laughs) it’s going down. (people laughing) Anyway, so Jenna and Channing are using a co-parenting app to help raise their six-year-old daughter, Everly. (audience exclaims) Now I don’t know how you all feel about this, I feel this is a terrible idea. I don’t care if the parents can’t stand each other to the depth of death. You gotta get it together, you got a six-year-old. Come on, an app? This means they don’t even have to speak with each other. (audience exclaims) He’ll be waiting at the front door, I left the lock off, his bag is right next to him. Pull him outside, and twist the lock back and go, bye. (audience laughs)
What is that? If you co-parented, if you’re co-parenting or anything like that, do you think that using an app is helpful? No. Clap if you do. (few people applaud) All right. Two hardened women. (audience laughs)
Okay. Are you a parent already? All right, well that’s why you’re talking. (audience laughs) ‘Cause somebody in my Hot Topics meeting never had kids, doesn’t want kids, and talking about the app is good. No, you pipe down until you have kids. (audience cheers)
Pipe down. Do you have kids? Are you with the father? No. Do you think an app would help better? Yes. To co-parent?
Yes. What is wrong with just meeting in a parking lot and exchanging the kids or just being civilized for one of your adult moments of the day? Because sometimes I just don’t wanna hear it. Well you’re an adult though, how old are your kids? I have one, he’s eight. Eight, that’s old enough. Suzanne, you see what I’m saying with these people? Yup.
(audience laughs) That’s old enough for the eight-year-old to see mom and dad fight. For one day, or however many days you guys swap off kids, three times a week or something, can’t you just pipe down and be grown and civilized like you are here? You look beautiful, by the way, I like your booties, I see them.
Oh, thank you, thank you.
Yeah. Yes, you can, but sometimes it takes two people, and if the person’s not mature enough and you understand that–
Nope, nope. It takes one to tango for five minutes. To swap the kids, put the bag in the car, kiss the baby goodbye, and be on your way. Suzanne? Yeah, oh yeah? Take her mic back. Okay, give it back.
(audience laughs) Take her mic back. Suzanne?
You’re done. No, but Suzanne? Yes, yes? I don’t understand. It does, it takes just a couple minutes to gather yourself and make it work. I agree. And also, the thing about using an app to swap kids, it’s people like Norman with nothing better to do. (audience laughs) Than sit at his computer and hack into your app to find out how you talk to each other and what the swap is. Norman–
How did I get involved in this? Because you know what you do. You know you’re good at what you do. Right. And you know what you do. Right, it might be fun to hack an app, maybe. (laughs) Hack an app. Hack an app. Look, I’m done. I’m done with that particular story. So, I’m sitting in the house, minding my own business. My niece came over, she was up from Miami, she flew back last night, but she was over. We’re watching “Judge Judy”, “TMZ”, all the usual stuff that you watch in the afternoon. And by the way, the paparazzi were outside our building. (audience exclaims) Uh-huh. I was like, look at this, show that picture. Me and her were just minding our own business. (audience cheers)
Yes! That’s not a yes. Uh-uh, uh-uh. That is not yes, she’s over my shoulder. We get out of the car and we’re just going upstairs and I’m thinking about what else are we gonna eat? ‘Cause we had already eaten something, we’re both foodies. She does the ABC News in Miami. She was up for the day to speak at her alma mater, St. John’s, right? And then she was flying back, she didn’t have to be there until six o’clock. So it’s like, one o’clock in the afternoon. I’m like, Al, let’s go back to my apartment. We’ll sit and we’ll talk and have a good old, niece and auntie, right? We get out of the car, I’m like, look at this. Now, mind you, the whole afternoon was a firestorm of phone calls, that’s my life. And I’m like, Alex, it’s a pleasure to have you here. Such pleasantries, what’s going on with your life? And we get out of the car and I’m like, oh, look at this. I didn’t put my sunglasses on. I’m literally getting, we just got out of the car, and I said, look at that, Alex. There’s the paparazzi right there over behind the black truck. They were dressed in all black. Click, click, click, I hear the clicks. I’m like, allergic to them now, I hear them. (audience laughs) Like, click, click, click. Sometimes I dream and wake up in the middle of the night thinking I’m hearing click, click, click, right? And they’re out there for whatever they’re out there for. But the bigger story is, New York, what are we gonna do on March 1st? Now, she’s going off to speak at St. John’s. I got my Gristedes bag, plastic, which is gonna be illegal on March 1st. By the way, that’s not food, those are light bulbs. She’s going to be excited to speak to her alma mater and I’m going inside to change light bulbs and minding my own business. What are we gonna do on March 1st? I don’t know about you, but the ban takes effect on March 1st. I don’t always have a canvas bag with me. I guess we’re gonna have to start to learn, because carrying groceries in your arms like this is not gonna work. (audience laughs) I’ve started to collect the bags though. When I go to the grocery, no, no, no, more than the ones I use. As soon as the cashier turns around to ring me up. (audience laughs) I take a pile, put ’em in my bag. (audience applauds) I don’t know about you, but those bags, we’re not just throwing ’em away. For me, I use them for after I finish a meal. I buy the big white plastic bags that I put in my recyclable bins in the apartment, but after I finish eating something good, I don’t want that in there. I’m not trying to get roaches. (audience laughs) (Norman laughs) I mean, you know. But I like to use those bags to throw away, if I have a pear, an apple, or something like that, I put it in those bags. When I finish with the cats and open their food, I know a vermin would love that old food. Sometimes I look at it with my mouth waters. (audience exclaims and laughs) So I throw their containers in there and then I take it out into the incinerator. Suzanne, what are you gonna do? I’ve been hoarding for months. Down in my basement, I have a whole area, just bags that I’m gonna sell. (audience laughs) No, but I know, canvas bags. I mean, it’s better for the environment, I’m glad it’s happening. It is, it is better. (audience applauds) But you’re gonna have to take a bag with you everywhere you go. Everywhere.
Stuff it in your pocket. Pull it out. Because you never know when you’re gonna go to the grocery store.
Uh-huh, exactly. Mm-hmm, it’s a predicament.
You know, I have a lot of those Wendy bags that we have on wendyshow.com. They’re black, they say Wendy on the side. Those crumple up to nothing, they’re canvas with a good handle. ‘Cause the ones with the hard bottom, you can’t really crumple them. Anyway. What was I talking about? (audience laughs) Oh, man. Ja’Net DuBois. (audience exclaims) That was, Willona, yes. Willona Woods. Ja’Net DuBois passed away on Monday. She was 74 years old, unexpectedly in her sleep. She lived in Glendale, California. I guess she was living by herself. She was on “Good Times” for five years playing the best neighbor of all, ’cause she was the responsible one, you know what I mean? (audience applauds)
And she had a good job. A lot of the sitcoms have neighbors. Like, I would love to be neighbors to Jack, just Jack. (audience laughs)
From “Will & Grace”. But I wouldn’t trust Jack with my children or cooking a meal. He’s good for laughter, you know? There are a lot of neighbors, like when the girls lived upstairs from Ross. I’m not trusting the friends at “Friends”. But Willona, she worked at the boutique, remember? She made her money. If she didn’t cook, she at least knew how to gather food. She was responsible enough to adopt Penny, A.K.A. Janet Jackson. So in December, remember she appeared on the “Good Times” live special. We talked about that. It seems like we were just talking about her just the other day. Anyway, she composed the theme song for “The Jeffersons”. She had three daughters, she was married at one point. And it’s just very, very sad. Janet released a statement. She says, “I saw firsthand how she broke stereotypes “and changed the landscape for black women in entertainment. “I’m grateful in recent years “to have had a chance to see her “and create more lasting memories.” Rest in peace. (audience applauds) That’s it? Yeah, I guess so. There’s a man here I’ve never met to be the guest on the couch. (audience laughs) (laughs) Look. I don’t know this man. (audience laughs) But I had no idea how much I actually have in common with him. So this is gonna be a good old time. Adam Pally is here. So grab a snack and come on back. (audience cheers)
(upbeat music) Ooh-ooh! Please welcome Adam Pally. (audience cheers)
(upbeat music) Ooh-ooh! Ooh-ooh! Hi. Ooh-ooh! Ooh-ooh! Ooh-ooh! Ooh-ooh! (audience cheers) Welcome to the show.
Thank you, thank you. Your hair is beautiful. Oh my God. (audience cheers) Thank you. I put product in it. Well you know what? That episode I happened to have been sitting in front of the TV watching. And I don’t know about you guys, but I have squished down on the shampoo before and washed with shampoo and said, why am I still sudsy? What is going on? Yeah, I actually didn’t know that. I thought shampoo was just hair soap. Like, I didn’t know. I just hurt your feelings. I’m sorry, but I didn’t know. I didn’t know that– (audience laughs) So when I was in college, most of the time, I would probably wash myself with shampoo, I think.
You’re such a boy. Or man, you’re such a man. I’m a man-boy. Put your feet on those feet. We have the Shoe Cam here. And if you look in the camera, model. (audience cheers)
(dreamy harp music) Get that little–
Yeah. Okay. You do like shoes.
Yeah. Wally’s. Yeah, it’s a subtle flex, but– (all laugh) And I understand you’re a sneaker-head. I like sneakers. I am a Jewish kid from New York, so sneakers– I thought you grew up in Livingston, that’s what they told me.
Yeah, I went to– Livingston High School? Livingston High School. I just moved from, I’m divorced now, I just moved from Livingston. My son graduated from Livingston High School. Oh, that’s so crazy. Yeah! Congratulations. No, no. Not congratulations? I don’t know what I’m congratulating. A nice place. No, you said congratulations like I escaped, but no. No, no, I meant congratulations to your son graduating high school. Yeah, yeah, he’s in college now but yeah. (audience applauds) That was a nice community. It was, a very nice community, yeah. Diners and– Yeah, love the Ritz Diner, shout-out–
The Ritz. Shout-out the Ritz. Eppes Essen across the street.
Eppes Essen, a great deli. With the carwash attached. Yeah, you gotta get a corn beef while you get your Miata cleaned. Absolutely. (audience laughs)
Of course. So then you and your family, you moved to New York? I was born in New York City. My parents started out as actors and musicians. And then– Wow. When I was around eight, my father decided he didn’t want to be an actor anymore, and he went back to medical school. And– (laughs) Wow. Yeah, that’s how Jews have fall-back careers. (audience laughs) Your fall-back career is a doctor.
(laughs) Is a doctor. And he went to the University of Chicago. So we lived in Chicago from the time I was eight ’til I was like, 11, which is my accent, it’s why I sound like I’m an animated sausage. (audience laughs) And then we moved, after then, to Livingston, New Jersey, which is where I finished out my childhood, I guess. Yeah, well, so now you’ve been married for 12 years. 12 years, yeah. (audience applauds) And I heard that you met your wife when you were kids. Now, how old is kids, ’cause some– Kids, like, we met when we were in high school, like 16, 15.
At Livingston High School?
At Livingston High School. Yeah, and then life kinda went our ways, and then we both moved back to New York City and kinda found each other again. Wow.
And then– (audience exclaims) Yeah. (laughs) She doesn’t look so impressed by your gorgois. I don’t know what, I don’t speak Spanish, but I– (audience laughs) I don’t know–
That means you’re a really good-looking man. Oh, thank you, no, oh. (audience applauds)
Thank you, Wendy, thank you. No, she’s not impressed. (audience laughs) When we met, I was an improv teacher, which is not like, the sexiest job to have when you meet someone that you knew in high school again. You’re like, I’m studying to improvise. Yeah.
They’re like, sure you don’t wanna write anything down? (laughs) (audience laughs) And so, yeah. And then, because we had such a strong history, we just started up really fast and then– Your parents were happy? Yeah, our parents, uh. Yeah, once again, I was an– I’m sorry.
Out-of-work improviser, so I think it took a little bit.
What does she do? Does she act? She, at the time, no. She owned a clothing store in Montclair, New Jersey. Fabulous. Yeah, which, she did for about 10 years. Yeah, so, and now you have three kids. Now we have three kids. So, and your career is really. I love the sitcom. Thank you.
I love Fran. I love Fran.
By the way. (audience applauds) So now. You and your wife, he plays Fran’s son. But look, so you, and Fran and her husband go broke, and they have to move in with their adult children. Yes.
And so that’s the premise. But look– I’m noticing myself on the monitor and I, pinstripes was a strong choice. (audience laughs) No, you look fine. I feel like I look like– I’m noticing you too, I’ve been wondering the whole time–
It’s part of the suit. What is that?
It’s part of the suit.
Is that a tie? It’s like, the suit, it’s like a flair to the suit. I like it though. Yeah, I’m noticing though, without a button-down shirt, it doesn’t make sense.
Do you think a thermal was the best choice, yeah.
(audience laughs) A thermal might not have been the best choice. I like, the thermal I like. I feel like I look like I got kicked out of Mumford & Sons. (audience laughs) Do you wanna take off your jacket? Absolutely not. (audience laughs) (Adam laughs) Okay, so you got the three kids. Yes. And you love hip-hop music. I do love hip-hop music, as I said– (audience cheers) And you named one of your children Drake? Yes, my youngest son’s name is Drake. (audience laughs) There’s a picture of him now. (Adam and audience laugh) How old is he? In that picture he’s two and a half. Okay, perfect.
(audience laughs) Sweet boy, sweet boy. (audience laughs) Full head of hair. So you like hip-hop music– Love hip-hop, yeah.
The hip-hop culture, the whole bit. Yeah, well you know, again, I grew up in Stuyvesant Town in the ’80s. Oh, are you going Downtown tomorrow to pick up the Supreme cookies? They’re $8 for three with the thing. Look, the line is gonna be wrapped around the block. I want Boof to go, Boof, can you source them out? I would go, but I’m 37. I know!
(audience laughs) Look, that’s why I’m not going, ’cause I’m too old. Pretty strict rule.
But Boof is younger than both of us, I think, bof of us. (Boof and audience laugh) Look, Boof. Boof, are you younger than bof of us? (audience laughs) Yes. (audience laughs) Boof, I want $8 Oreos with only three. I’m not gonna eat, they’re red.
You can’t open ’em. You don’t open ’em.
No, they’re Supreme. I’m too old to be a sneaker-head, but. Supreme stuff is cool, I like it. I’ve loved Supreme since– I’m too old for talking like this. All right, but look, all right, so thank you, Boof. All right.
I’ll talk about whatever you want. Well, and away we go.
Okay. All right? Once upon a time–
I thought we’ve been gone. Nope.
(audience laughs) Nope.
Okay. Once upon a time, there’s a guy named Adam. And he was in college. And hit on Jennifer Lopez. (audience exclaims) The term hit on is not, that’s a– Told her she’s fine? Asked her out? Drooled? It was a bit. A bit? Well I went to The Actors Studio for college. You have to go to those James Lipton classes and I put it off my senior year. But in order to graduate, you need to have gone to a certain number of those. And so the only one that I could get into was Jennifer Lopez. And obviously I’m a huge J. Lo-head.
Who isn’t? I love “Out of Sight”. “Gigli” and all that stuff.
And that’s about it at the time that she had to talk. It was a lot of “Out of Sight” and the movie, “U Turn”. ‘Cause it was early on in her career. “Hustlers”. Not out yet. (audience laughs) I would have loved to talk about “Hustlers”. I would’ve talked about anything. Explain about, where were you sitting, right in the front? Kind of, yeah, right in the front. And they passed the microphone through the audience and there comes a point where you can ask questions. I–
Here you go. Yeah, I wasn’t smart. What’d you say?
I stood up, I just asked her if she wanted to rent the movie, “Big Fish”. (audience laughs) Which was (laughs). Implying that you wanted to watch it with her? Yeah. But she’s a lovely woman, I know she didn’t just shut you down. Actually, she quite did. (audience laughs) She was very sweet about it, and I was like, obviously, it wasn’t a great, it was a bit that didn’t go well, which was kind of a precursor for my career. (audience laughs) But she was very sweet about it. Your career seems to be going very well, Adam Pally. Adam Pally, everybody. (audience cheers)
Watch “Indebted”. It’s on Thursday nights at 9:30 on NBC. I watch. We’ll be right back. (audience cheers)
(upbeat music) Ooh-ooh! Ooh-ooh! (audience cheers)
(upbeat music) Ooh-ooh! This is my special guest today. This is Dr. Rolanda Wilkerson. Tell us why you’re here and spread the love with everyone. Hi, Wendy, how you doin’? How you doin’, doc? I’m doing amazing, I’m excited to be here. I’m a PhD in organic chemistry, and I work in the beauty industry. We know that one of the most important things for black women is growing healthy hair. But one thing that we–
Not just black women, all women.
That’s true, exactly. One thing that we oftentimes don’t consider is that in order to grow healthy hair, you have to have a healthy scalp.
Healthy scalp. Exactly, exactly, and that’s why I work with a team of black experts, hair and scalp experts, to design this new Royal Oils lineup, specifically for scalp and hair care. Now, I don’t know about a lot of you all, but I do get a flake or three in my scalp when I wash. And I must tell you, I’m loving this Head & Shoulders thing right here. Talk about all this stuff. Sure, so the collection has been designed for women, but men and women can also use it. It has been designed to promote a healthy scalp, while at the same time, helping us grow healthy hair. Now let me tell you about two of my favorites. We have here the Instant Soothe Scalp Elixir, and– That’s the one that makes your scalp feel minty. Ooh, yes.
(audience laughs) You feel it immediately. Exactly. It feels minty in there, uh-huh. Exactly. So with that one, it’s amazing because it allows us to spray directly on the scalp. It’s great for wigs, weaves, extensions, locs, yes. And that is because– What if you put it on your actual, natural scalp? I wear wigs, but you know I have natural hair under here. When I put it on my natural scalp, it, minty. Yes. Minty.
Minty, yes. Yeah, so that cooling menthol and peppermint– I love it.
That’s what you’re feeling. And that’s what’s giving that instant relief, and it has 24-hour long-lasting protection from itch and dandruff. So it’s amazing.
(audience laughs) Yes, it’s amazing.
If you put a plastic bag over your head and tie it in a knot– Yes.
Before March 1st. (audience laughs) Yes. Good. It is good. And the other one that we have, and it’s my favorite too. This product is the pre-shampoo build-up remover. That’s a good one too.
It’s used before you shampoo your hair to remove and lift the build-up that’s on the scalp. Right. In between washes there can be lots of build-up, so we use this product to remove that build-up. It’s free of parabens as well as sulfates, so it’s an amazing product. All you have to do is shake it, and it blends the coconut oil and the micellar water to remove the build-up. What she said.
Yes. (audience laughs) All right, so what’s all doin’ over here? Are we gonna explain the rest? So the amazing lineup has shampoo, conditioner, a co-wash– This is in my shower right now.
Yeah, and it should be. It should be in everybody’s shower. I mean, there’s nothing worse than wearing black clothes all the time, like we do in New York, and have a flake while you’re trying to entertain gentlemen friends. Not good. (laughs)
(audience laughs) That is not sexy. Not sexy at all. So that’s why we’re here for you. Well, I got a surprise for my cohost, because guess what? You’re all going home with all this. (audience cheers)
Yup. Thank you, Dr. Rolanda. $100 gift card to Walmart. Oh, wait, wait, wait. Oh, and a $100 gift card to Walmart. (audience cheers) Thank you, Dr. Rolanda. Be sure to check out these products at your local Walmart. Ask Wendy is next. (upbeat music)
(audience cheers) Ooh-ooh! (audience cheers)
(upbeat music) Ooh-ooh! Ooh-ooh! February is Black History Month. Today we’re honoring our friend, Simone Biles. Simone is the most-decorated American gymnast of all, with 30 gold medals. (audience cheers drown out Wendy) And we treasure your movie, I’ve seen it like, 25 times. So now it’s time for Ask Wendy. (audience cheers) Come on. Hi, Wendy, my name’s Zach, how you doin’? Did you see that girl over there dropping it? (audience laughs)
Yes, she was amazing. Fantastic. Ooh, Zach, how can I help you? So my question is, I’m originally from New York, but I’ve lived in San Francisco for the past two years. Okay. I’m trying to move back to New York ’cause just a change of pace, my whole family’s here. The problem is my mom is Greek, over-bearing, nosy, in my business. Love her, but that’s her. How do I move back to New York without moving in with my mom? She’s already got the bed saved, but I don’t want to hurt her feelings. Well she can keep the bed up when you visit her like, twice a month. Right.
And stay overnight. Okay.
You know? But get your own apartment. And preferably not in her part of the city. Right.

Both you and me like to eat. We both like to eat, right?
Yup. I had this conversation with my niece yesterday. So it’s gotten so bad, Wendy. Snacks, gummy bears, popcorn, anything.
