Aretha Franklin invited Wendy Williams into her home for a very intimate interview. She spoke about her dramatic weight loss, pop culture, and even reality TV, but remained tight-lipped about her major surgery.
In the exclusive interview with “The Wendy Williams Show,” Franklin said she was continuing to work on her health.
Franklin said she has focused on changing her diet — including avoiding food “smothered” in hot sauce.
“That’s off the menu now… and no pig feet, either.”
The 68-year-old “Queen Of Soul” said she was motivated to shed the weight after seeing photos of herself and revealed she had a difficult time losing the weight.
“I was doing everything you could to lose that weight, and it’s hard. It’s just really hard. [But] you can’t continue eating things that will hurt you eventually.”
In part 2 of Wendy’s interview, Franklin spoke about her upcoming biopic and why she originally chose Halle Berry (who turned down the role) to portray her:
