Wendy Williams's new fresh start
According to Page Six, a renowned restaurant owner identified as Rosanna Scotto said that the troubled veteran TV host has been talking to her about learning the ropes of running a restaurant.
“She loves the meatballs at Fresco and the last time I talked to her, she was like, ‘OK, Rosanna, I am coming to Fresco and I want the meatballs, and then you’re going to help me open up my own restaurant.’ And I’m like, ‘What, sister, you wanna take my people away to your restaurant?” she said.
Williams's friend said the former TV personality has time now that she is not recording any shows and is seriously looking into starting her own venture.
“I don’t know if she wants me to waitress or what, but she did tell me she wants to open her own restaurant and she wants me to help. If there is [a restaurant] from Wendy, it will be a big competition but I love her,” added the media personality's friend.
This comes months after her manager Will Selby, announced that Williams was making a comeback with a new podcast where she will sit down with high-profile celebrities.
The podcast's debut is still unknown, but reports indicate that Williams was still trying to decide if she will go solo or partner with streaming services such as Spotify.
