ON today’s edition of The Wendy Williams Show (nationally syndicated, check local listings; show also airs on BET nightly @ 11 p.m. EST) former Wonder Woman star Lynda Carter stopped by the studio to chat with Wendy about her career, her family and her new CD “At Last.” When chatting about her hesitation about plastic surgery, Lynda commented, “I’m terrified of it.”

Wendy and Lynda discuss her reason for not doing plastic surgery:

Wendy Williams – Now you say you don’t do plastic surgery?

Lynda Carter – There are people who have so much money and they have plastic surgery and you think, ‘Oh, my God!’ They look so awful that you think…well, I’m terrified of it.

Wendy asked Lynda how she cares for her Wonder Woman costume:

LC – I took it out not too long ago and realized that it’s falling apart a little bit and I have to take it to the Smithsonian to have them look at it.

WW – Because you can’t trust it [the costume] with any seamstress at the local dry cleaners!

Lynda discusses how she got into acting:

WW – How did you get off the singing path to become an actress?

LC – I was on the road doing clubs around the country and I didn’t think that was going to get me to where I wanted to go. I moved to Los Angeles and did some studio singing and some acting. They told me that I couldn’t tell anyone that I was a singer because producers didn’t want singers who acted back then.

Wendy and Lynda talk about her former alchohol addiction:

LC – It felt like it happened overnight. I had been so successful in everything I had done, and I couldn’t get hold of this thing.

Lynda Carter chats with Wendy Williams about her personal Wonder Woman belongings, including her memorable Halloween costume – link follows:
