Wendy Williams and Tony Dovolani

Wendy Williams
"Talk's Biggest Talker"

PRO DANCER PARTNER: Tony Dovolani

Called a "breakthrough in daytime" by The New York Times, Wendy Williams burst onto the national talk show scene in 2009 with the launch of her daily, syndicated program, The Wendy Williams Show. Touted by People as one of the "best shows of 2009," the critically-acclaimed series now has the distinction of being destination television.

A mother, wife and bestselling author, Wendy built a devoted following from her years as one of radio's most popular personalities. In addition to her daytime TV success, Wendy will host GSN's new original series Love Triangle, slated to premiere April of 2011.

Wendy was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame (only the second African American woman to be honored by the organization) in November of 2009. She is the author of two New York Times bestsellers, Wendy's Got The Heat and The Wendy Williams Experience. Well, Wendy's next experience has her taking center stage on Dancing With The Stars. Can't wait to see her in action!

Tony Dovolani

CELEBRITY PARTNER: Wendy Williams

BACKGROUND:
Be still our beating, ballroom-dancing hearts—Tony's back for Season 11 of DWTS, and you can bet he's gonna bring a little extra fire to the floor this spring.

Born in Kosovo, professional ballroom dancer, instructor and judge Driton "Tony" Dovolani began folk dancing at age three. When he was 15, his entire family moved to the United States and Tony got the opportunity to attend the New England-based Fred Astaire Dance Academy. From that moment on, he knew he had found his passion.

Since that time, Tony has traveled the world and won several championships. Tony also had a featured role in the hit film Shall We Dance, and spent time coaching Jennifer Lopez.

Dovolani made his Dancing with the Stars debut in Season 2, when he was paired up with professional wrestler Stacy Keibler. And Tony was partnered with Melissa Rycroft in Season 8, where they came in third place.

How far will his fancy footwork take him this time?

Are ya'll sure she's not a man? And those dumplings, as Len called them - why would anyone make their boobs that big?

What a disappointment. I expected better from her. She was stiff as a board.

She was extremely nervious last night. Way too stiff, and the routine was not very good.

Again, the quickstep was not her friend. I liked them but wish that she would just chill a bit.

Another not so good dance for Wendy. I think she could be in trouble, unless she has a huge following that I don't know about.
