NEW YORK, Nov. 18, 2010 -- Wendy Williams, touted as a "breakthrough in daytime" by The New York Times, will pose her signature question, "How you doin'?," to the cast of Logo's "The A-List: New York" as host of the reunion special. Sparks are sure to fly when the talk show host checks in with the cast after an emotionally explosive season asking them all the burning questions viewers are dying to know and Wendy is bold enough to ask.

"The A-List: New York" still leaves plenty of questions lingering after a highly controversial and turbulent season. Will Reichen and Rodiney continue on their rollercoaster ride and avoid further outside "temptations?" Has Derek found the "Mr. Right" (and "Mr. Rich") he's been looking for? Can anyone get along with impulsive Austin? Viewers will get the answers to these questions and many more as Wendy arrives equipped with her personal arsenal of questions along with viewer submitted inquiries from Facebook and Twitter to round out the show.
'"The A-List: New York' has taken its rightful place among the greatest of jaw-dropping television," said Dave Mace, SVP, Programming and Development, Logo. "We needed a personality strong, quick-witted and daring enough to handle this bunch of 'housewives' and as the talk show host who continues to breathe new life into daytime television, Wendy's absolutely perfect for the job."
"As a huge fan of Logo and 'The A-List: New York,' I am very excited to host this highly anticipated reunion special and don't worry, I will be sure to ask all the burning questions viewers have been dying to know the answers to all season long," said Wendy Williams.
