Talk show host Wendy Williams turned heads on the red carpet Sunday night at the Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards in New York City when she showed off her svelte shape and small waist in a plunging, shimmering evening gown. And Williams, who hosted the event and will soon star in the Broadway production of "Chicago," has good reason to want to flaunt her figure … she's worked for it!
The 5'11" wig wearer recently announced on her online "After Show" segment that she's dropped 20 pounds since last May and is now down to 175 pounds. "[My weight] is under control although it can spin out of control at any given time. You know I love my food," Williams, 48, explains in the video, adding that she decided to drop the weight to get ready for turning the big 5-0 next summer.
"I don't turn 50 for a year and a half but my metabolism is slower and 50, I can see that being one of those milestones that make you want to jump off a building if you don't have it together."

"If you can just cut out a few things of your diet, you're going to notice a difference in how you look," she says. "Stop eating full-fat chocolate bars. Grab yourself two SnackWell's cookies instead of eating the Entenmann's," she implores. "Kale chips instead of potato chips."
