Wendy Williams Celebrates 500th Episode, Tallies How Many Times She's Said 'How You Doin'?' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Wendy Williams celebrated the 500th episode of her syndicated talk show “The Wendy Williams Show” on Wednesday, four years after it premiered in 2008. Williams thanked her audience and reflected on her humble beginnings. “When I tell you I’m a girl from New Jersey with a dream, I mean, I’m just a girl from New Jersey who had a dream,” she said.

Williams’ producers broke down some fun statistics from her 500 shows. Most importantly, they calculated that Wendy has said her signature catchphrase, “How you doin'?" 2,297 times, second only to the 1,673 times she's said 'Lindsay Lohan.' Williams has cried 23 times on the show, and though that may seem like a lot, she felt that 23 out of 500 was a pretty good ratio. Last but not least, she’s only belched one time on the show, which just happened last week.

Many fans sent in videos to congratulate Williams on the milestone by reminiscing about their favorite show moments. One fan said his favorite moment was when Williams deep-fried her weave.
