Before she had her own show, Wendy Williams was just a normal kid!

On Thursday, the "Wendy Williams Show" star shared the vintage snap of her much younger self.

"#Tbt My 5th grade school photo and real hair!," she posted on Instagram along with the personal pic.

Wendy's daytime show is entering its fifth season -- the new season premieres next Monday! The daytime TV personality is definitely enjoying every minute of her success, as she should.

In an interview with the New York Post, Wendy explained "I might be the only person who — if you look at the light in my eyes and the [set] door opens and my theme music is playing . . . I might be the only one on TV who genuinely wants to be there every day," she says.

The possibilities seem endless for Williams -- she also just launched her very own line of wigs!
