On Wednesday night, judges and the audience voted against the talk show host, at which time she removed her Lips costume and revealed her identity
Before returning to work on her own talk show in New York City, Wendy Williams flew to Los Angeles and was in the spotlight on The Masked Singer
Williams, dressed in Lips, paid tribute to the Big Apple on Wednesday night’s episode by performing “Odyssey’s Native New Yorker” Unfortunately, Williams, 56, Masked Singer’s debut also served final number But she was still having fun
“I was relieved I at least did one,” Wendy Williams Show host told PEOPLE “Because normally it’s something I don’t do I’m not a singer I’m not a dancer I’m talking It’s what I do That’s why I chose the lips But everyone was so nice «
The Daytime Emmy nominee knows Masked Singer host Nick Cannon very well and on Wednesday’s show he revealed that they had recently spoken on the phone « You keep a big secret, » said Cannon, 40, in Williams
« He knew right away, » Williams tells PEOPLE « After you finish singing you go and sit on the couch, then Nick comes out He’s supposed to talk to the candidate who just sang While he walked over to the couch he said: ‘I know exactly who it is »
Below, Williams explains why she wanted to go on The Masked Singer, how she handles reviews and why she doesn’t mind spending the holidays alone this year
WENDY WILLIAMS: You have your own show, so why did you want to continue on The Masked Singer?
PEOPLE: Well they called I said, « Alright I can’t wait for my forties to end to do a show like The Masked Singer They’re calling now, and we seem to have a captive audience » When a show as popular as The Masked Singer is calling you, you have to say, « Yes » I’ve been watching the show since it was on TV I know Nick I know Jenny [McCarthy] I know Robin [Thicke] I know Nicole [ Scherzinger] The only one I didn’t know was Ken [Jeong], and now I know Ken Our show was down for a while [due to COVID-19], so it was a perfect week to switch to MOON and then step back It was perfect timing
It was relieving Instead of asking me questions and suggesting what people should do and being on the front line, these people took my hand and drove me as they wanted And I felt perfectly safe
No The song that I sang, I already liked I didn’t do any vocal training or anything like that I am who I am I sing as I sing My most important thing was to keep the secret My staff didn’t know
Exactly I have really long legs and really long arms, and it sounded really simple – like, just come in and start singing But it wasn’t easy like that, because it was really heavy
People always seem to have opinions about you or the opinions you express on your show, so how did you feel about being anonymous?
Well once I opened my mouth I figured that for people who watch my talk show or who have followed my career over the years they would know my voice This is not unusual, but it’s a bit distinct

Earlier this week on your show, you thanked your fans for watching and expressed your appreciation for being with you. What do you think your fans will say after seeing you on The Masked Singer?
« Oh, no she didn’t Oh yeah, she did It’s a lot of fun » I’m just Wendy My overall thing is, « Go for it, Go for it »
Does it hurt that people can be so critical even though you have a positive message?
No I mean it could be tough for 12 hours But I know how to bounce and see the sun through the clouds
Are there any songs you would like to sing if you stick around?
Well I would have loved to meet Eddie Murphy, « Party All the Time » I’m not a slow music lover I like upbeat music And I like to move my shoulders and have fun I’m in business , but I’m fun and I laugh And so if I had gotten to this song, I would have torn it up
The holidays are here I’m the only one here in NYC All my family is in Miami so they’ll all be together Guess I’ll eat a canned turkey or something on my own Don’t be sorry for me i’m fine i’m passing my virus tests i know people here, but i don’t know where they’ve been don’t drag these germs around my house!
This is going to be very exciting The movie is called Wendy Williams: The Movie It’s so funny, because we have gone through so many titles to get back to the most basic I know when it’s going to be released, but I can’t talk to you about it now But soon They have a Wendy weekend on Lifetime, and I can’t wait to be there
