The talk show host, who isn't afraid to ask the tough questions, also get serenaded with two songs by the great Chaka Khan -- “I’m Every Woman” and “Ain’t Nobody” -- as part of her big day.

In anticipation of her 50th, Williams, recently did stand up comedy in Las Vegas to knock that off her bucket list. She told ABC News that her content of last week's show was going to be very personal and come from her rough upbringing.

"I had a very tortured childhood," she said. "I was tortured, they fat shamed me. ... So, I want to talk about growing up. I want to answer the big question about the boobs. People know they are breast implants, but a lot of people, I read and see, 'You've lost so much weight now, you need a breast reduction.'"

Happy 50th Wendy!
