Wendy Williams Talks ‘Drama,’ Prepares First Novel

Radio personality

Wendy Williams is entering the world of literature with a new series of novels.

Williams’ first

book Drama Is Her Middle Name: The Ritz Harper Chronicles Vol. 1 is part

of an on-going series about her alter-ego, Ritz Harper, a famous radio personality.

"She gets

to be super-sized by a backstabbing college friend," Williams told AllHipHop.com

of the novel’s main character. "It’s kind of like a moral thing, like,

‘Would you do that?’ She just runs away with her new super-sized fame money,

fortune, the whole bit. Ritz starts my series of novels."

Published by Harlem

Moon and written with author Karen Hunter (LL Cool J, Karrine "Superhead"

Steffans), Drama’s storyline somewhat mirror’s that of Williams’ actual

career, and according to a press release for the book, "readers will salivate

as they try to figure out where the fictional Ritz ends and the real-life Wendy

begins."

Williams, who

will release the next novel in the series in December, also revealed that she

is the new spokesperson for liquor brand Alize. "You’ll be seeing cutouts

and all that other kind of jazz in stores very soon," she said.

Drama Is Her

Middle Name : The Ritz Harper Chronicles Vol. 1 hits shelves June 20.
