New York, NY - January 31, 2012 - Debmar-Mercury's "The Wendy Williams Show" will deliver an exciting and celeb-packed month full of big names and bigger surprises beginning February 2. Each week of the month will have a different theme and will incorporate a star-studded list of celebrity guests.

Grammy award-winning R&B superstar Mary J. Blige will appear and perform on February 2. And on February 3, international movie star Daniel Radcliffe and reality divas Snooki and JWoww of "Jersey Shore" will drop by.

"Celebrity Co-Host" week kicks off February 6 with super hot "Extra" TV host Mario Lopez joining Williams. Williams will also welcome legendary comedienne Joan Rivers (February 7), Sugar Ray lead singer Marc McGrath (February 8) and over-the-top wrestler, actor and personality Hulk Hogan (February 9) as co-hosts. A very special surprise guest will join Williams as co-host on Friday, February 10.

"How You Datin'?" week premieres February 13 in honor of Valentine's Day, and in response to an overwhelming amount of mail from female fans looking for love. Williams will play matchmaker for her viewers, as single ladies vie for a date with a hot bachelor hand-picked by Wendy.

Just in time for the Academy Awards, the popular and always-entertaining "Hairpiece Theatre" segments return for the week of February 20. Each day Williams and a special guest will reenact a classic scene from popular films.

TV personalities Melissa Rivers (February 7), Howie Mandel (February 8), Ray J (February 15), Donald Trump (February 21) and Star Jones (February 29) will also make special appearances.

"The Wendy Williams Show" is the provocative, must-see daytime talk show. Taped live in New York, and airing in national syndication weekdays and on BET at midnight, viewers delight over Williams' distinctive and entertaining funny personality, as well as a diverse mix of interviews with celebrity guests from television, film, music and sports. Popular segments include "Ask Wendy," during which she offers real advice to audience members looking for solutions to problems, and "Hot Topics," in which she delivers her own unpredictable, honest, authentic and opinionated take on the juiciest headlines. "The Wendy Williams Show" is in its third season and has been renewed through 2014 on Fox.

Called a "breakthrough in daytime" by The New York Times, "The Wendy Williams Show" premiered in July 2009 and features mother, wife and best-selling author Wendy Williams, which the New York Post hails as "daytime TV's favorite guilty pleasure." Before launching her television show, Williams enjoyed an enormously successful 23-year career as one of radio's most popular personalities, which garnered her a spot in the National Radio Hall of Fame. "The Wendy Williams Show" is produced and distributed by Debmar-Mercury.
