Jason gave fans an inside look at all the fun on his Instagram Stories where he called Wendy the ‘sexiest date’ in NYC.
‘I wasn’t going to come outside without the sexiest date in New York City!’ Jason said before panning to Wendy, who was now wearing black bunny ears.
He asked her her iconic catchphrase – ‘How ya doing?’
‘How ya doing?’ Wendy threw back.

Speaking with TMZ as she arrived at the party, Wendy said she planned on returning to television in September.
‘Of course!’ she said when asked if she was returning to her show.
‘The Wendy Williams Show lives forever!’ she added.
Asked if she would be returning in September, Williams shouted enthusiastically, ‘Yes! Yes! Yes! ‘
Wendy said in March that she was looking forward to returning to host The Wendy Williams Show, even though the show’s producer and distributor announced in February that it was being canceled.
So far, no end date has been announced, and the show is still going through guest hosts, including Sherri Shepherd and Michael Rapaport.
Sherri will now be taking over for Wendy with a new talk show simply titled Sherri. It is set to take over Wendy’s time slot in the fall.
Wendy hasn’t been seen on her show since July 2021.
Wendy has also been engaged in a lawsuit with Wells Fargo after it blocked her from accessing her funds due to her contention that she requires a guardian.
