Wendy Williams finally sat down with the Queen of Soul for Wednesday’s broadcast of her talk show, but the legendary singer still didn’t disclose the exact nature of her recent illness.
The singer – who underwent surgery in December for a mystery complaint that was widely reported as pancreatic cancer – revealed the pain she felt was so severe she could barely stand and immediately pulled out of her concert tour in order to receive treatment.
“That [pain in my side] was my first inkling that something was wrong, that something wasn’t what it should be,” she told Wendy. “The pain was so hard it nearly brought me to my knees. So I said, ‘The concerts are over. I have to go find out what is wrong.’”
Regarding her 85 pound weight loss, Franklin said she decided to cut out junk food and her beloved pork products while adopting a healthier lifestyle.
She also brings Williams to tears over the radio interview she conducted with Franklin’s goddaughter Whitney Houston in 2003, when the former shock jock continually quizzed her about her alleged drug use. The exchange turned nasty and ended with Houston proclaiming, “If this were back in the day in Newark (New Jersey), I’d meet you outside.”
“She’s doing very well, very well. And sometimes all it takes is just someone to say certain things.”
