VENICE, Calif. – Rising Star PR has signed 2009 AVN Transsexual Performer of the Year Wendy Williams to its public relations roster.

"Wendy Williams is a bona fide star," said Rising Star founder Devan Cypher. "We've come up with a plan to help her start getting some of the attention she deserves. I'm looking forward to seeing the diva bust down barriers in the years to come."

Williams is the owner and operator of Hot Wendy Productions. Within the past year, she became the first TS to appear at official store signings, and the first to star in an all-black gang bang (the AVN-nominated A She-Male Gang Bang: The Interracial Version).

"I feel like Rising Star really understands what I'm looking for," said Williams. "They have the background and experience to help me get the kind of first-class exposure I am looking for in my career right now. I only work with the best."
