Trivia and Quotes

    • Wendi: (On Hollywood's pressure to be thin) Well, first you have to ask yourself if you want to be the kind of actress who's interesting, or the kind of actress who's meant to play the pretty-but-uninteresting wife of a chubby guy on a network sitcom. If you want to play the good roles, spend more time in college and in acting class than you do in the gym, and you'll have the career you want. Talent always wins out in the long run.

    • Wendi: As a performer, you can't just sit around waiting for the phone to ring. You have to write and develop projects for yourself, because casting people aren't always going to see you the way you want to be seen. Write a one-person show, shoot a short film, do plays, whatever - activity breeds activity. No one's interested in a stay-at-home actress.

  • Wendi is AMAZING!

    When I first saw Wendi McLendon-Covey on Lovespring International, I instantly knew that she had an incredible amount of talent. I have so much respect for her, because I think it is simply amazing that she improvs on both Lovespring and Reno 911! (and Wendi is the reason I became a Reno 911! fan). She has the ability to make you laugh at anything she throws at you, and that makes her characters on both shows two of the funniest characters I have ever seen. She is one of my all-time favorite actresses. Do not pass up the opportunity to see her on TV or in the movies; you will regret that you did.moreless
  • She's one of the best actresses in TWO comedy shows!

    Wendi is one of the best comedic actresses on sitcoms today! Not only is she absolutely beautiful, but she has phenomenal comedic improvisation skills. She currently stars on both Reno 911! and Lovespring International, and she's one of the most humorous characters on those shows. I'd watch anything with her in it and I can't wait until her upcoming film Cook Off comes out (which I believe she also wrote). One has to wonder how Wendi has all the time and energy to do all these things! I look for big things from her in the future; I would especially like to see her have her own improv show, or maybe go on a major stand-up tour.moreless
