Talk show queen Wendy Williams may be joining the cast of the Real Housewives of New York - according to new reports.

Gossip columnist Rob Shutter, who is a frequent guest on The Wendy Williams’ show, is claiming that Andy Cohen is “begging” Wendy to join The Real Housewives of New York.

Rob explained on his “Straight Shuter” podcast, “Andy wants Wendy and is doing whatever it takes to get her to sign up, even if only for one season.” 

If Wendy agrees, she'll be the first African American Housewife on the New York franchise.

Bravo is reportedly looking for celebrities to add to the cast to make the decade-old series “fresh and exciting.”

And they really want Wendy to join. Rob claims that are eyeing the talk show host because “Wendy is the hottest lady in NYC” since splitting from her longtime husband to living the single life on both coasts.

A rep for Bravo told us the network doesn’t comment on casting.

Williams has been documenting her single life after filing for divorce from Kevin Hunter, and Cohen gushed over her newfound life when he appeared on “The Wendy Williams Show” after a six-year absence.

“Your husband [Kevin Hunter] was not my biggest fan,” said Cohen, 51. “I’ve been cheering you on for the last six years.”

He added, “I’m so excited about Wendy in the city.”
