The birthday boy for July 3 is Montel Williams.
“The Montel Williams Show” was a different kind of talk show. In many respects, it’s greatest strength was its sensitivity to the issues it featured. Far less sensational than most of its counterparts, the show was cancelled because it couldn’t compete with the baby-daddies/big name celebrities/audience giveaways that defined the competition.
The show reflected the spirit of its Cancer host. Williams was sensitive and vulnerable, but a little no-nonsense when some tough love was required. Curiously, he not only shares his last name with Wendy Williams, but he also shares her zodiac sign. Although I’ve only seen her show a few times, I’ve seen her crying more than enough. Cancers have the reputation of being hard-boiled, but just below the surface they’re as soft as they come.
