OMG, lather, rinse, repeat. State your previous personal very close relationship to the guest (who's your best friend, best boss, best WHATEVAH). Check. Have the guest offer condolences for your father's death, an anecdote about your father or - bonus - BOTH. Check. Then make the topic about you. Check. Everyone else could talk about the Wendy Williams story in general terms (e.g., live by the sword, die by the sword). But HRH of Arizona had to make it about her - I told them when I joined the show I wouldn't talk about my personal life. NO ONE CARES. Just give us "your View" on the topic!
As a personal challenge to myself, I'm going to stop commenting on her regular narcissistic behavior and just talk about the other hosts and the guests. Unless she says/does something REALLY moronic and different. Let's see if I can make it until they go on summer vacation 😂
