Actress/Author/Producer/Filmmaker/Host Wendy Stuart Kaplan guests on Chance TV with world-renowned television host and celebrity interviewer Chance Spiessbach.
Dubbed by her friends “the Kathy Griffin of fashion”, Wendy’s hilarious, occasionally poignant story of how she became – and has remained for 30 years – one of the most successful “fit” models in the country (that size 8 you’re wearing might very well be based on Wendy Stuart Kaplan’s figure), is told with a Griffin-esque sense of humor untarnished by malice. From studying voodoo in Nigeria through years of taking mind-numbing jobs just to pay the rent, to her success in the present day where she can say of the women’s underwear sold at Wal-Mart, modeled on her size eight body, “I cover the asses of the masses.”
WENDY STUART KAPLAN is one of the top fit models in New York City. An experienced “clothing technician” and a perfect size 8, she fits everything from outerwear to lingerie. Her client roster is as eclectic as her career including Eileen Fisher, Roca Wear, London Fog Coats, Warnaco intimates and Christian Dior Swimwear.
As an actress, print model, and stand up comedienne, Wendy has worked in film, television and theatre and has made appearances on many syndicated and daytime talk shows. Her fun personality and quick sense of humor made her a standout guest whether she was modeling unusual wedding gowns on Geraldo or selling shoes on Speigel TV. Her ecclectic career also includes being voted Mrs. NY, going on to compete in the National Mrs. America pageant.
Chance Spiessbach is an Entertainment Journalist, Host and Television Personality. Endearing, witty, unarguably funny, Chance is one of the most industrious people in show business. Chance has won the hearts of millions from both the celebrities he interviews to the fans who eagerly await to view his coverage. Spiessbach is a force both on-and-off camera. He is a true result of hard work and determination and serves as inspiration to people.
He has successfully interviewed a vast roster ranging from Deepak Chopra to Kim Kardashian, to Ice T, and corporate titans like Dick Parsons. He managed to turn his gift for gab into one-on-one interactions with stars such as Sean Penn, Mel Gibson and Madonna. They enjoyed his interviews so much they literally had to be pulled away!
Manifesting his great entrepreneurial spirit, Chance created his own show Chance TV, where he can be seen on Hollywood’s most exclusive Events, Red Carpets, Green Rooms, Backstage and On-Set. Chance is a master interviewer and is just as comfortable one-on-one as he is in front of a room filled with A-Listers and influencers. With his incredible ability to move a crowd he was chosen to host the Georgio Gucci Gala honoring and marking the first time in over 25 years Mr.Gucci visited the US.
Chance is a unique, easy going and versatile interviewer who is comfortable in any situation he finds himself in. With celebrities he always finds a way to get them to open up since he realizes icons are people too and as Chance says “I interview the person not the celebrity.” The most memorable interview of his career was interviewing Art Ford, Whitney Houston’s producer of 30 years and him receiving the text of Whitney Houston’s death. Chance was the last person to interview James Gandolfini before his passing.
