Wendy Williams Fails Queerty’s Gay Marriage Quiz, Explains Origins Of “How Ya Doin”

Talk show host Wendy Williams has been a longtime ally, but she’s quick to admit that she doesn’t always keep up on LGBT news.

When asked what two states were the latest to pass marriage equality, she drew a blank.

“I have to be very honest with you, I’ve been married for 14 years,” says Williams, “and I also realize that marriage is not for everyone. Being a baby’s mother, baby’s father, or just partners in crime, is just fine. But I do believe in marriage equality and you’ll pardon me if I don’t remember all the states.”

She also explains the origins of her trademark phrase “how ya doin’,” which was not invented with the help of gay friends but does, she says, “have a drag aspect to it.”

Wendy also stopped by the Ketel One VIP Suite to have a cocktail and a clay mold of her hand made (photo above). For each celebrity that did so, Ketel One donated $1,000 directly to GLAAD.
