NEW YORK, Feb. 21 (UPI) -- U.S. talk-show host Wendy Williams announced Monday she has landed the exclusive first in-person interview with Aretha Franklin since the singer has been ill.

Media reports said the 68-year-old artist dubbed the Queen of Soul was recently treated for pancreatic cancer.

However, her representatives confirmed only that she underwent successful surgery in December for an undisclosed ailment.

"The legendary Aretha Franklin has invited me to do an exclusive, in-person intimate conversation with her in Detroit, that's where she lives," Williams said on the "The Wendy Williams Show" Monday. "So I'm packing my bags and we'll bring the camera crew and everything, and, so far, Aretha has two activities she wants us to do. First thing is she wants us to go to the gym and the second thing is she wants us to have high tea together. ... I'm going to share that interview with you guys next week."
