WASHINGTON (AP) — Talk show host Wendy Williams is giving part of her diva act to the Smithsonian to be part of a growing collection of items from daytime television.

During an episode of "The Wendy Williams Show" on Friday, Williams is donating her bedazzled pink microphone and other items to the National Museum of American History.

The gift includes the dress and shoes Williams wore for the show's first photo shoot, a wig and wig head, a script and a light-up "diva fan" with Williams' signature catchphrase "How you doin'?"

The museum says Williams is the first talk show host to donate objects to the entertainment collection. Her TV show premiered in July 2009 and is currently in its fifth season. Previously, Williams had a 23-year career as a radio personality.
