VIDEO: Wendy Williams Chats Making her Debut in Broadway's CHICAGO

On yesterday's THE Wendy Williams SHOW, host Wendy Williams chatted with her audience about making her Broadway debut in the role of "the mistress of murderer's row" -- Matron "Mama" Morton in the current revival of Chicago.

"This is by far the most difficult thing that I have ever done in my entire career," shared the host, "And I've been doing my career in either radio or TV for thirty years!" Check out her rundown of the experience below!

The celebrated talk show host and best-selling author is now playing a limited engagement in Chicago which will continue through Sunday, August 11 at the Ambassador Theatre (219 West 49th Street).

Williams burst onto The Talk show scene in July 2009 with the launch of the nationally-syndicated weekday program, "The Wendy Williams Show," which airs in 52 countries, on BET at midnight and is now in its fourth season, has been renewed on FOX through 2014.

Prior to achieving success in daytime television, Williams built a devoted audience of fans throughout an enormously successful 23-year career in radio. "The Wendy Williams Experience" was Williams' top-rated, daily radio show. Syndicated nationally, it aired on WBLS in New York and was listened to by an audience of more than 12 million people. One of the most popular personalities in radio, Williams was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in November of 2009-one of only a handful of women with that honor.

Williams competed on Season 12 of ABC's SMASH hit dancing competition "Dancing With The Stars," has hosted Game Show Network's original series "Love Triangle," and appeared as a featured guest on ABC's "One Life to Live" and Lifetime's "Drop Dead Diva."

Williams made her major motion picture debut in StEve Harvey's release of "Think Like a Man" April 2012 and has been named to The Hollywood Reporter's prestigious "35 Most Powerful People in Media" list two years in a row.

Williams is the author of The New York Times best seller The Wendy Williams Experience (Dutton Books), as well as several novels including Ritz Harper Goes to Hollywood, and will release her sixth book titled Ask Wendy on May 7.
