[via press release from Debmar-Mercury]



New York, NY - October 22, 2012 - Debmar-Mercury's "The Wendy Williams Show" is celebrating its highest-rated month ever with peaks in key demos and isn't stopping there. A slew of fun and off-the-wall segments to commemorate the election year in Wendy's always-colorful "How You Doin'" style is slated for the coming month.

October 25th kicks off the festivities with "Wendy's Political Party" as the set transforms into a red, white and blue bash that will be unlike anything from the conventions. Political commentator Rachel Maddow also stops by to help break down the upcoming election. Visit www.WendyShow.com/vote-wendy to view Wendy's PSA and make your vote count.

The excitement continues the following week with jaw-dropping surprise stunts during "Wow Wendy Week." "Cloud Atlas" star and Academy Award-winning actress Halle Berry (October 29) and music legend Barry Manilow (October 30) make their debut on "The Wendy Williams Show." And in celebration of the show's fourth annual Halloween spectacular, Wendy will honor the leading lady from the iconic '70's hit TV show "I Dream Of Jeannie" by dressing up in the figure-hugging classic and colorful two-piece costume. Fellow daytime talk show talent Ricki Lake joins in the fun and promises to surprise viewers with her stand-out costume as well.

Urging viewers to hit the polls and make their voices heard, Wendy is turning over the power to the people during the "Viewers Vote Live" segment during election week (week of November 5th). Votes will be gathered from the live studio audience and from online fans at www.WendyShow.com/vote-wendy to determine everything from which wig Wendy rocks, to what celebrities will do in their second segment of the show. America will decide if Wendy's celebrity guests should dance, sing karaoke, take a cream pie in the face, etc.

Moving into the week of November 12th, Wendy will host the show's first-ever singing competition. Two singers will compete each day. The finalists will battle it out at the end of the week and one winner will be awarded a surprise. Votes can be cast on www.WendyShow.com/vote-wendy.

Once again, placing all the power in the hands of the fans, "Wendy Would You Week" the week of November 19th will give the viewers and audience members a chance to sound off on what stunt they would like to see their daytime darling do - whether it's babysit a viewer's kids, prank call a celebrity, or fly in Peter Pan-style over her studio audience - the sky is no limit for this show's daring host.
