Wendy Williams Goes Full Tilt for EDGE Magazine

Talk Show Diva Returns to Hometown for Spring Fashion Shoot

ASBURY PARK, N.J., April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Wendy Williams rarely does anything half way. So it's no surprise that she has taken over the April "Personal Space" issue of EDGE Magazine. The syndicated talk show host took EDGE Fashion Director Nadine Raphael on a tour of Asbury Park for a Spring photo shoot. Williams posed for the magazine cover and six interior pages at classic shore venues—and also sat down for a Q&A with writer Gerry Strauss after a live taping of her program in New York.

The Wendy Williams Q&A is part of EDGE’s April/May “Personal Space" issue, EDGE Magazine is published by Trinitas Regional Medical Center. More than 75,000 copies are sold and mailed, regularly reaching over 300,000 readers in central New Jersey. The magazine has an additional 150,000 online readers, who spend an average of 30-plus minutes on EdgeMagOnline.com—as well as thousands more following EDGE through Twitter @EDGEMagNJ and Facebook  EDGE Magazine (NJ).

Williams rose to fame as a New York radio personality who shared juicy inside info on the stars with her audience. In her EDGE interview, she marvels at how her pioneering work helped spawn an entire industry—and how celebrities are often willing participants.

"If you pay close attention, you'll notice we continually hear about basically the same 150 celebrities," she points out, joking that if Alec Baldwin wants to avoid the paparazzi, maybe "he should move to Jersey."

The Wendy Williams interview is one of three Q&A's in the current issue. Pulitzer Prize-winning author Robert Caro talks about his experiences in journalism and politics in the Garden State as a newly minted Princeton grad, and actress Toks Olagundoye discusses her role as an alien in a New Jersey suburb on the ABC sitcom The Neighbors.

Also in the Personal Space issue of EDGE are stories on the ultimate handbag, the pros and cons of exotic pets, and an interior designer's take on the quintessential "Man Cave." The magazine's Health & Wellness section covers advances in the treatment of lung disease and hand-and-shoulder pain, as well as hoarding, deep-brain stimulation and a nutritionist's take on Bacon Week in Atlantic City. The EDGE food review explores Amuse, C.J. Reycraft's new Westfield restaurant.

On the horizon in the "Hidden Gems" issue of EDGE, which comes off press in June, is an interview with Pompton Plains-born Jason Biggs, and the "real" story behind New Jersey's Monuments Men.
