Wendy Williams at long last, reveals the origins over her catchphrase "How You Doin"!!!

Wendy Williams sat down with BET.com's Clay Cane to dish on her biopic, the time Halle Berry tapped her breast, and her love for the gays, along with the source of her signature catchphrase.

"First of all, you have to say it like a drag queen," Williams told Cane. According to Williams, the catchphrase came about from her stint on a Philadelphia radio morning show, when a cohost would affect the voice of a gay character named Shantay. None of the other hosts wanted to engage with Shantay, so Williams stepped up with a sassy, "Hey. Shantay, how you doin'?"

"So now it's become my official catchphrase of the show," said Williams, "because what I found through the years, since the beginning of 'How you doin', is that it makes everybody laugh and smile, and it breaks up the room."

Williams also talks about the now-shelved biopic she and her husband began.
