Aretha to talk with Wendy Williams

Syndicated talk-show host Wendy Williams has just announced a really big "get."

She'll interview Aretha Franklin, who has been recovering from an undisclosed illness.

"The legendary Aretha Franklin has invited me to do an exclusive, in-person intimate conversation with her in Detroit. That's where she lives," Williams told her audience. "The way I figure, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I'm going to go to Detroit where Aretha lives and where she reigns supreme and this is like the big sit-down interview. So I'm packing my bags and we'll bring the camera crew and everything, and so far Aretha has two activities she wants us to do. First thing is, she wants us to go to the gym and the second thing is she wants us to have high tea together."
