During an interview with Venus Williams on 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated), Wendy Williams told a story of being stopped by a middle-aged couple asking for her autograph. But, Williams said, the couple mistakenly thought she was the tennis pro instead.

Williams said she was working as an entertainment reporter for 'Today' at the time and was entering the NBC studios when the autograph seekers asked for her signature. "Somebody stopped me with pen and paper ... [They said,] 'Ms. Williams! Ms. Williams! We love you! Can we please have your autograph?' I was like, 'Oh, thank you! Sure.' And, so, I wrote it down, and they said, 'We watch you every time you play.' I said, 'What?!' They mistook me for you."
