Staff Pick

More than your favorite reaction GIF, Wendy Williams is vulnerable, vivacious, and the reigning queen of spilled tea. The 55-year-old radio personality, New York Times bestselling author, and host of The Wendy Williams Show for 11 years running is — even amid a public and emotional divorce and a televised admission of her recent decision to seek sobriety for a decade-long addiction to cocaine — still a compelling storyteller and over-sharer. Williams, who is the subject of a forthcoming Lifetime biopic, will headline an evening of “comedy and truth” along with some special comedic guests to help the glamazon air grievances and take names.

Doors open at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 3, at Music Hall; 350 Madison St., Detroit; 313-887-8500; musichall.org. Tickets are $49.75+.
