TMZ.com is reporting that TV gabber and current "Dancing With The Stars" contestant Wendy Williams is being sued by the promoter of her recent appearance at The Pool at Harrah's Resort Atlantic City. 

According to the gossipteers at TMZ, the unnamed producer paid the former Power99 personality $25,000 for a two-hour appearance at The Pool March 17. But according to the suit, Williams stayed only an hour and spent most of the time drinking champagne and wine in a cabana with her husband rather than mingling with customers who paid $30 admission to the event and serving as the DJ for the bash.

When contacted by the Daily News, Jennifer Weissman, regional vice president of marketing for Caesars Entertainment, which owns and operates Harrah's, said in an email: "The Pool After Dark at Harrah’s Resort was pleased with Wendy’s appearance and would gladly welcome her back.  We are not a party to the lawsuit and have no comment on that issue,"
