Looks like we’ll all be asking, “How you doin’?” for at least seven more years.

That question is The Wendy Williams Show catchphrase, and according to Variety, Wendy Williams’ television contract for her daytime talk show has been extended to 2022.

Williams has come a long way since being one of the leading gossip disc jockeys in New York City. She reigned as the Queen of Radio then, and now she’ll continue her reign on daytime TV.

Williams was nominated this year for a daytime Emmy for her talk show. Kudos to her for this extension, and likely more money in her pocket.
