Wendy Williams Reveals She and Joan Rivers Had the Same Doctor

On this morning's episode of The Wendy Williams Show, Wendy caused shock and awe among her audience when she revealed that she once went to Joan Rivers's doctor. You know, the one who reportedly took a selfie with the late comedian when she was unconscious. OOOOoooooOOOOOOoooo.


Though Rivers's personal doctor was not named at first, since the original CNN report, it has been revealed that her doctor was Dr. Gwen Korovin, an ear, nose and throat specialist "to the stars."

In her segment, Wendy got the crowd all riled up by merely mentioning that Korovin treated a lot of celebrities, as if they knew what was coming: Wendy herself had been treated by Korovin – and she had the footage to prove it! It seems that Wendy went to see "Dr. Gwen" while she was preparing for her turn in Chicago last summer. Footage of their session discussing her throat issues aired during her special How You Doin' Broadway?! for the TV Guide Network in October.

During the episode, Dr. Gwen's appearance was noted by at least one viewer.

During this new episode, Williams cautioned that Korovin "didn't have to operate" on her – "thank god!" But perhaps more notably:

She doesn't take insurance! Believe me, I gagged about that. Fortunately, because I went to see her on TV time, TV paid for it. Although, that special was a Wendy Williams production so somehow, I paid for it!


Wendy also suggested that we all have a friend sit in the corner when we're going under during operations to make sure everything goes okay, which is an...interesting idea. She also said that according to her sources, Dr. Korovin "is now in hiding" and she will keep us posted on further developments. OOOOOOoooooooOOOOOooo.



Wait - she doesn't take insurance? Is that legal? To the Googles!
