The wendy williams show is going strong, season eight premiers this monday.
>> the one and only wendy williams joins us live authorizing.
And -- this morning.
Wendy, how you doing?
>> how you doing, brian?
>> good to see you this morning.
What can we expect for the big new season?
>> well, i have a secret that i can be reveal right now, but you'll see on monday.
I have a brand new set.
There's been major construction over the summer.
>> i love that.
I love that.
Talk more about what else to expect in season eight.
Here's my big question for you.
What are your thoughts on making this long through the daytime talk scene where others have not lasted as long as you have?
What's your secret to success?
>> well, i think that daytime tv is one of the unique spots, much like nighttime tv, talk shows in general, where it's not about a big name.
It's about big personality that will bring people in and keep them engaged for an hour.
You know, i just am who i am, and through the luck of the draw and a great support system here, we've survived.
I can't worry about katie and them because they were -- by the way, i'm friends with both of them.
But, you know, have i to worry about myself.
>> and yourself you do a fantastic job.
So many people love the idea -- >> thank you >> you're welcome.
You have that say it like you mean it attitude.
How do you keep things so honest and real in the moment when may wee it's hard to be able to get into some of those topics with people?
>> well, it is hard.
But, you know, i -- i -- you know, i speak from the heart.
It's the only way i know how to do it.
I said it.
>> oh, well.
I love it.
What are the hot topics you're looking forward to on monday's big show?
>> well, there were a lot of breakups and makeups over the summer.
Emily, you're getting me at a bad time right now, because there were so many hot topics i have to wean them down to eight or 10 as opposed to the 25 i'd like to talk about.
You should do a special where you do hot topics the whole hour.
>> well, you know, no guest monday.
It's going to be me and you and hot topics, ask wendy and stuff like that.
>> he will have i coming on the show?
I'll be watching from my home in salt lake city.
>> that's what i mean.
Me and you.
I can't wait.
>> she did mean that.
Looking forward to that.
I hear you're launching a new line on hsn.
How does that feel?
>> feels great.
You know, on the 23rd, next friday, i'm going to introduce my shoe line.
I have shoes, boots, all affordable.
I've got flats.
Knee high boots.
I think that you'll like them.
That feels wonderful.
I haven't done shoes yet so that's friday.
And saturday i will still be at hsn with apparel.
In november i have outer wear.
I want to thank everybody for supporting the talk show, because without the support of the talk show, you know, hsn or any of my other endeavors would really probably not be around.
>> but they are around, and you're doing fantastic.
Here's my last question for you.
Who is your favorite guest that you have lined up for the next week or so?
>> i don't have favorite guests.
>> i like my celebrities but my favorite guests honestly, are my cohosts.
However i am always looking forward to conservation with whoopie goldberg.
The game is coming to clear up some rumors, the rapper, the game.
But most importantly it's me and you.
>> that's right.
>> we love it.
