Wendy Williams Pens Her First Romance Novel

INSIDE EDITION spoke to talk show host Wendy Williams about her steamy new romance novel, Hold Me in Contempt.

Talk show host Wendy Williams now has her own no-holds-barred romance novel called Hold Me in Contempt.

INSIDE EDITION’s Paul Boyd asked her, “Why a romance novel?”

She said, “Listen, it's spring, it's summer, it's the perfect time of year when many of us go on vacation and we want a good book.”

This is the very first steamy romance novel the popular TV personality has written and she says she got a little help from her fans.

Boyd said, “You actually let your fans, your audience, choose the title and the book cover art.”

She said, “I wouldn't be here or have a good career, without my Wendy watchers, so why not bring them along for the journey? Why not include them?”

The main character is a beautiful prosecutor named Kim who meets a mysterious stranger named King, and there's plenty of sex.

She said, "King is a cross between David Beckham and Justin Timberlake, with the body of Channing Tatum. He's gorgeous and wealthy!"

She has written six previous books, including a best-selling autobiography. Williams turns 50 in July, and says she's just getting started in the world of romance fiction, saying, “I love the process of writing. I'm a reader myself and I wrote this book with passion.”
