Dr. Wendy Osefo made her first in-studio “WWHL” appearance.
Dr. Wendy Osefo put her best glam forward for her first in-studio “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” appearance.
The “Real Housewives of Potomac” star, 37, took the Clubhouse by storm on Sunday night with her husband, Edward Osefo, serving as the bartender.
But her show-stopping look — that took an hour in hair, an hour in makeup and extra preparation behind the scenes — took front and center.
“It wasn’t easy because I was toggling between what to wear — Do I do a dress? Do I do pants?” Osefo told Page Six Style.
“I tried on different things and I just fell in love with this. A lot of people go, ‘It’s a jumpsuit,’ but it’s a two-piece sequined silver outfit.”
She added that the metallic outfit had “just the right amount of fun” for her in-studio debut — and then for a night on the town at James Gardner’s restaurant, Gitano.
Osefo’s makeup artist, Kendell Dempster, said he drew inspiration from none other than Queen Bey for her ultra-glam beauty look.
“From the moment she sent me the picture of what she was wearing, I immediately thought of Beyoncé in the ‘Sweet Dreams video’ and how soft and beautiful her skin was,” he told us via email.
Her hairstylist, Yancey Edwards, agreed.
“When Dr. Wendy pulled out her one-piece jumpsuit, it immediately gave me Beyoncé vibes,” he said via email. “I decided to do her hair with tons of curls and waves … the only thing missing was her Beyoncé fan!”
Osefo also told Page Six Style that she had “been guzzling water” to keep her skin hydrated and give her energy leading up to the taping.
“I am an early bird. Having three kids who are relatively young, a lot of my energy is exerted throughout the day,” she explained. “So nighttime, I just like to relax and I don’t do much. So any time that I have to do an event, I change my routine because I have to have enough energy to be able to do it.”
While she’s looking forward to getting some rest, she’s also looking ahead to her next trip to New York.
“I grew up for a portion of my life on Long Island. I was so young, so the city was almost a magical place for us. We weren’t old enough to go to clubs or anything, but it was always magical whenever I came to the city,” she gushed. “And that remains true now. The city is one of my favorite places.”
