Popular daytime television host, Wendy Williams gets a lot of love from her viewers, but flashbacks to her childhood shows that kind of love was not as prevalent when it came to her own physical appearance.

Williams’ issue with her weight is one of many topics discussed during her appearance on Centric TV’s “Being.”

According to Williams, her family was more concerned about her weight than she was.

“I was the odd ball in my family,” she said. “Nobody in my family is overweight and here I come,” she said. “I was on a diet from 1st grade on. When I was an adolescent, they would weigh me every morning,”

Although she didn’t believe it was necessary back then, Williams believes her family’s efforts may have been a plus for her.

“When I look back at pictures, I wasn’t fat, but if they never gave me the business, maybe I would be today,” said the former radio show host, who admitted to feeling “skinny” and “attractive” today at 49.
