Lynda Carter on 'The Wendy Williams Show'When Lynda Carter auditioned for 'Wonder Woman' in 1975, she was vying against a bevy of talented actors to get what she saw as the only good role for a woman on television at the time. Carter said today on 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated) that you had to be a mother, a hooker or a secretary to get on television at that time.

Carter would see many familiar faces at auditions, including Farrah Fawcett, Cheryl Ladd, Jaclyn Smith and Lindsay Wagner, including her 'Wonder Woman' audition. "We all ended up, for every part that came along, it was the same group of women," said Carter. "I walk in the room and I see them all sitting there, we go 'Hi.'"

Carter thought for certain one of the others was going to get the role. And now that the TV remake hasn't been picked up and 'Smallville' is done, it may be a while before you see another live-action 'Wonder Woman' on TV.
