They didn't know what you know what I went over any trucks apartment that he wanted to -- and then took over I was very you know very thoughtful in my driving right of it. And then the and I want to do what -- been told that I was funny. Is relative you don't know what does that mean red so I sat rate well I would. -- -- an evening of stand up. -- be you know. You know we would get a little little place in Manhattan with their three professional comedians aren't in the fourth wanted to into the night when everybody's bombs everything -- back. -- -- -- But the that I -- called out in Vegas and he said. We've got a -- -- you know with the -- here with 750 seats and we've got -- minutes for you we want to kick off the line of the fourteen week run of. Lit match its -- shifts is something that -- featuring only female funny ladies on the only one that's funny without. Being formally called comedian the other ones include -- -- de Har. Of -- Lisa Lampanelli yes Caroline -- Lonnie love you know Rita -- -- read about her. You got some serious happens up there for seventy minutes you're gonna be up there you're not a comedian Al ready for this I'm ready and not a cocky way I'm ready away but -- -- I would have been working with -- comedian that I admire -- now OK and Ellis taught me through pacing. I'm might jokes coming from real life stories that now -- -- I'm able to find very humorous. And make fun of myself in a comical way. And so. I would be going there in over the -- that no we've never seen except for maybe people -- -- table. This was asking you about that because that's on YouTube clip talking there about the show this is going to be totally different than what your daytime shows about -- and this is everything and that's that is even included in the after show right. -- -- I -- means you're really -- and pulling out all the stops on -- well. I am very tortured childhood. My parents thank god there deep they've lived and they still -- to see me. Fulfill a lot of things that they wished for me like marriage child a great career losing some weight sitting on -- torture that -- that seeing me. I did all those things on my own terms. And now that my biggest fans so I can do no wrong. So -- wanted to about -- -- by wanna talk about. I'm the one finally answer the big question about the -- which people -- -- -- breast implants you know that -- but. Let a lot of people. I didn't say. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It now while I answer you with -- -- straight that there are active if -- in. And Vegas if you if you read you've read those comments like pretty closely I'm getting taken to heart no I don't take them to heart but you know. I have. Over two million followers on in. FaceBook. Instead -- whatever it is you know I have but so. And I think that the comments are very important because those in my direct -- watchers and in with. Being mean some of -- they do say some very constructive things. You know one of the things that people -- election shows the fat that you really kind of you don't hold back on -- celebrities and some other BS all right. And you know -- A couple of targets over the years -- have been perennial favorites the -- -- -- the real housewives. -- blacklisted from any parties from any guest list from things like that because you know and I think about it though in the term of -- Kathy Griffin who is plagued -- -- -- -- she's out there what customer outside while trying to get names and things that. -- she's now -- obviously at the level you're at that level but. It's a social -- though that has been expanded -- the people that you're talking about that now might be cutting yourself off. You know -- love celebrity culture. But it's only been the last six well actually no I'm pretty good celebrated radio career but what I learned. Early on. What's getting the opportunity to meet celebrities is that when they invite you to stop. Don't -- you get it may be every fifteen depending on depending on the event and the celebrity is. Because it taints my hot topics -- interesting for me -- and personally. It taints my hot topics. It also. I guess taints my view of celebrity culture I enjoy meeting my celebrities when they come out on the couch I socialize with a lot of celebrities you know in the Katie -- -- -- the other girls and as and that's fine but I don't generally make that might rule I'd like to do -- -- here in Manhattan and go back to Jersey. And mind my own damn business. Because that keeps hot topics pure so I can become. Of the people if you know what insane. I mean is a stay of the -- -- -- -- I think I think that's what -- and I just think -- it's -- be incredibly difficult because it's a very tempting world to get sucked into it not. It's not -- anymore I didn't -- -- the popular girl of the popular cheerleader I've never been to a prom I didn't have. You don't -- -- boyfriend some used to being on this side of life. Now it's almost like a long long. I was the same -- that when I was 22 it was just I was too insecure to say sort of things I think -- now do you -- -- my friend because I advocate talks out. I I appreciate what you're saying but no I'm gonna go back home. This is like this is like it's going your high school reunion review really come back -- like after you've been -- exactly. You've gotten the surgeries done like you've got. -- resentful for -- I just see it for what it is and I and I find that. Now. Having a thirteen year old and -- would be raising him -- -- -- celebrity obsessed culture way he really does I have to say there's. -- set it off until he admires the way I handled celebrity -- and is that cause you know -- my husband -- worked right. You know he's one of the second produces on the -- -- my manager. -- he admires the way we handle it and there's nothing that. Makes us happier. Then you know a thirteen year old could they can be jerks and -- Right right and yet easily -- by that. I want to ask you gonna interview that she did with a celebrity newfound celebrity really from oranges the new black Laverne Cox was on your show -- And you were asking about. Laverne is transgender woman and you were asking about her transition and you're asking about some operations net. From that -- got some criticism from the transgender community about being insensitive to do you think that you were fairly criticized. I feel as though I was asking that question from a layman's perspective you know I'm not in the gay community. Although they've always embraced -- gay community. I've had. Very few conversations. With transgender you know -- -- spoken to Chad's. Chaz -- yes. -- Been in the club but -- -- slouching relocate here ask your questions. I thought she was respectful -- -- but you can't believe me from asking right now I'm Wendy. And an. I don't I'll let I'm not coming from Lincoln -- expect. A place of the same curiosity that movie -- of people. Wait isn't that we're not asking the right questions -- -- -- frees him in the right way are -- being insensitive to it what you think. He isn't honest and you're not the only -- I -- -- brought Katie Katie Couric the same way with Laverne Cox. Had also been criticized for some of the questions that she had asked as well. I know that me myself I mean I'm trying to trying to educate be very sensitive to the terminology that I -- -- right. But even on learning as well. -- remember the question I asked her I asked one question -- I know that because -- -- haul her saying. You know Wendy you know why don't want to talk about that that I can't find like getting better at that -- -- and ask. You know. Body you know -- my -- curious question what they say oh now I want to talk about that C. All of it would've pushed pushed us right -- -- me understand it's like the other day when. Amber -- on the -- right. And I got to -- thanks that we think about human -- and she's already I don't wanna talk about that. I said are you glad you escaped she said yes and I left it alone Iraq. -- you know so you can't you cannot Boleyn. Interviewers for asking questions that. Millions of people want -- now.

Years ago when I first heard it might. But 25 years ago I believe I was -- -- started on the radio might say you know like I got the Mike open take a look at yourself from particular angles and. He's been a real conversation was my audience. And so. I do plan on addressing that I get that comes from what in my opinion. There's there's no Boris way to insult a woman than to say she looks like a man but -- a woman gets over the. There is no stronger woman that woman who who it rolls off -- back when you say that. Like there's nothing there's nothing you can call me at this particular point I've been dealing with this for decades. I I listen I icing of stronger woman a sitting across from me right now.
