Millions of people watch the “How You Doin'” honey everyday, but now we get to see her on a different stage. Original “Soul Train” host, Don Cornelius was a huge fan of Wendy’s, so when Wendy had his son Tony on the show, he just had to let her know: “My father always though highly of you. He always thought you were aggressive; you could make it happen Now you’ve become this media personality,” Tony said, explaining Don’s deep admiration for Wendy.

When Wendy accepted the hosting gig, she vowed to deliver! “I am so excited to be such a big part of such a big musical night. I’m going to give you razzle dazzle and costume changes and jokes for days! I will not let you guys down!”
