Kim Kardashian, Lea Michele and now … Wendy Williams?! The talk show host hopped on the hottest Hollywood trend by flaunting her sexy curves on Instagram.

“I know it’s FREEZING, but I’ll be BACK TOMORROW with all NEW SHOWS and JUICY, JUICY #HOTTOPICS…get ready…I AM!!! Happy New Year!” she captioned the above photo, striking a hip-popped pose in a mix-and-match bikini featuring a chevron bottom and black top. The low-cut bottom gave a close look at some ink on her stomach, which appears to be a flowering vine beneath her bellybutton.

Williams also also showed off a shorter hairstyle, shedding her usual voluminous wigs (she has one named Gayle King!) for a wavy, blonde (Beyoncé-inspired?) bob.

The TV star — who lost 20 pounds last year — has always been very open about embracing her body and not restricting herself from the foods she loves. “It might not be right for everybody, but I am perfect the way I am right now,” Williams told Dr. Mehmet Oz of her weight last May. “I weigh 175 pounds. I am very accepting of my height and weight and where I am probably for the first time steadily in my life. I feel good.” And it shows!

What do you think of her bikini selfie? Do you like her hair short? Sound off below!
