Wendy, 55, fought back tears as she accepted the honor. "If I don't laugh, I'll cry, so I'll keep it light and laughter-y," she said as the crowd laughed.

It's been a rough year for the single mother of one who divorced her husband, Kevin Hunter, after he welcomed a baby daughter with his longtime mistress.
