In easily the strangest moment from the bloated two-hour finale of “Dancing with the Stars,” host Tom Bergeron set up a segment in which we saw Wendy Williams on the set of her self-titled daytime talk show. Introducing us to her guest, Wendy welcomed…herself.
In a segment straight out of an Eddie Murphy movie, Wendy played the role of both host and guest. Sitting next to “guest” Wendy on the couch was her “Dancing” partner Tony Dovolani.
Host Wendy asked guest Wendy her trademark question: “How you doin’?” That caused both Wendy’s to repeat the phrase over and over again, to the point where Tony looked into the camera and said, “I’m so confused.”

When host Wendy asked guest Wendy her thoughts on Kirstie Alley, who lost the “Dancing” finale to Hines Ward, guest Wendy said the following:
“When it’s all said and done, I bet you she’d be a great drinking partner.”
As for her thoughts on Hines?
“He doin’ good. I really like Hines and think he’s very attractive.”
That comment caused Tony to look at guest Wendy in disbelief.
“What about me,” Tony asked.
“Oh come on, Tony,” exclaimed guest Wendy, who proceeded to laugh while the audience applauded the mock interview.
