Wendy Williams received a star on the Hollywood walk of fame this week, and to celebrate she dined with a few members of Hollywood’s TV royalty, Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein.
If you don’t know these gents, you should.
Mort and Ira are the co-presidents of Debmar-Mercury, who are leaders in the world of media syndication, production and distribution.
The company syndicates The Wendy Williams show and as you can tell, this group is a match made in heaven.
Marcus and Bernstein are two of the most successful television executives in the game. The duo made headlines in 2006 with their history-making launch of first-run sitcom, Tyler Perry’s House of Payne.
The group dined at Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills, and were all smiles as they left the restaurant.
Earlier in the day, Wendy arrived in Los Angeles to accepted a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame after years of successfully hosting her daytime talk show.
During the ceremony, the beloved talk show host got emotional as she posed for photos with her 19-year-old son, Kevin Jr.
Wendy addressed her split from estranged husband Kevin Hunter at the ceremony, saying, “The elephant in the room is that I’ve been having a very, very tough year. But slowly but surely, I’m climbing out of the pit,” she told the gathered crowd.
“And this is one of those monumental days, that, you say, ‘if you don’t believe in yourself, who’s going to believe in you?” she said.
She continued, “Sometimes life is a very, very lonely path. You just have to make some hard decisions.”
As for her recent rebound success, “I will recognize when it’s time to give up, but I’ve only been unemployed for two months out of 30-something years,” she pointed out.
“I’m not one to give up.” she concluded.
