Kim Kardashian, Lea Michele and now … Wendy Williams?! The talk show host hopped on the hottest Hollywood trend by flaunting her sexy curves on Instagram.

“I know it’s FREEZING, but I’ll be BACK TOMORROW with all NEW SHOWS and JUICY, JUICY #HOTTOPICS…get ready…I AM!!! Happy New Year!” she captioned the above photo, striking a hip-popped pose in a mix-and-match bikini featuring a chevron bottom and black top. The low-cut bottom gave a close look at some ink on her stomach, which appears to be a flowering vine beneath her bellybutton.

Williams also also showed off a shorter hairstyle, shedding her usual voluminous wigs (she has one named Gayle King!) for a wavy, blonde (Beyoncé-inspired?) bob.

The TV star — who lost 20 pounds last year — has always been very open about embracing her body and not restricting herself from the foods she loves. “It might not be right for everybody, but I am perfect the way I am right now,” Williams told Dr. Mehmet Oz of her weight last May. “I weigh 175 pounds. I am very accepting of my height and weight and where I am probably for the first time steadily in my life. I feel good.” And it shows!

What do you think of her bikini selfie? Do you like her hair short? Sound off below!

Why is this shocking? Can’t a woman other than Rihanna or Beyonce post a picture of themselves in a bikini? Or is it the age thing again? You guys need to refer back to that video you posted about prejudice against women.

She looks great. And Isn’t a selfie a picture you take of yourself? Either she had a camera with a timer or it’s not a selfie.

Love it!

I can’t stand her or her show but she looks great. Remember ladies many of these women have had plastic surgery. Wendy is no exception.

Yay on

HUGE Wendy fan!!

Jm- Wendy talks about her own plastic surgery regularly. Breast, lipo, tummy tuck. She still has to maintain it.

Go Wendy! She is comfortable in her own skin and I love it!! I’m tired of seeing half naked prosthetic woman in tabloids.

Marie on

Go Wendy Girl, you look great!

How is she “comfortable in her skin” when she’s had numerous cosmetic surgeries? That suggests body dysmorphia not comfort. I respect people who look the way they do because of hard work and healthy lifestyles…not lots of cash and a surgeon’s scalpel. Give me a break.

She looks amazing. She does not look like she weighs 175 pounds though. Maybe she’s lost more since then? Anyway, go Wendy!
