The Smithsonian Institution museum, on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., is set to become the recipient of a different kind of artifacts that have been donated by syndicated television talk show host, Wendy Williams Hunter.

The actress, media personality and author, will be giving some of items that she has used on her talk show “The Wendy Williams Show,” including the pink microphone she has used on many occasions.

The announcement of the donations was made during her talk show, while she was standing beside, and towering over, the tiny, Dwight Blocker Bowers, curator of the entertainment division of the Smithsonian museum. Another item that will be donated to the museum is one of her wigs that she wore on her show.

The donation by Williams is to help the museums drive to collect items from television personalities to open a new collection. The museum’s drive is in conjunction with a three-year partnership with the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, which they began last year.

The 49-year-old television personality said she was overjoyed and honored to be the first TV Talk Show Host to donate items that she has used in her shows to the Smithsonian. She will also be donating the small boots that she wore when promoting her show, made by French footwear designer, Christian Louboutin, along with the dress she wore.

The museum has already collected various items for their collection of television artifacts section, including, the chair from “Archie Bunker’s Place,” the long running sitcom that replaced “All in the Family.”

Another item that has been donated to the museum is the shirt from the second episode of the fifth season of the sitcom “Seinfeld,” entitled “The Puffy Shirt,” episode, aired in 1993.

On her talk show, when Williams appeared with Bowers, she asked him if she would be the only talk show host that would be represented in the museum, or were there others. Bowers replied that she was indeed the very first talk show host to donate items to the museum.

Upon hearing this, the star of the “Wendy Williams Show” and former radio personality for over 23 years, said that she was honored and proud to be the first talk show host, to be represented in the museum. She added, in disbelief, “No Regis? No Oprah?”
