On today’s edition of ‘The Wendy Williams Show’ (nationally syndicated, check your local listings) host Wendy Williams talked about last night’s announcement of her being a contestant on season twelve of ABC’s ‘Dancing With The Stars’, talking about how long she kept it a secret, and the changes she’ll be making while she competes on the show.  Williams commented: “So I was so excited to do today’s show, last night it was revealed – finally, it was so hard to keep a secret – that I am part of season twelve of ‘Dancing With The Stars’.  And, listen, I won’t let you down.

Look, I promise you that I will use all of my meat for good not evil.  Okay, so there are a couple things that I need to fill you in on .  First of all, while I’m competing, I want to retire ‘How You Doin,’ it’s [now] ‘How You Dancin,’ and the second thing is you know I wear my right-handed flower ring, which is very special to me, I’ve had it for years … but while I’m competing I’m going to be wearing my disco ball ring.  And when you see me out in the streets doing what a housewife normally does, I’ll have my disco ring on for good luck and to keep the excitement of ‘Dancing With The Stars’ alive.  Now, let’s talk about the other ten [contestants] because I didn’t know them either.  I didn’t know my partner, I knew nothing – this is such a well-oiled machine, ‘Dancing With The Stars’, and it was such an honor to be asked, I’ve known for a little over a month.  And I know that I’m the lady of the ‘Hot Topics’ and you think I have a big mouth – but not really!”

Later in the show, Williams got a jumpstart to her dance training by taking some lessons from former ‘Dancing With The Stars’ winner John O’Hurley, who taught her the waltz.
