Ethnicity: Egyptian (paternal grandfather), German, French, English

Wendie has stated:

My father’s father was a Coptic Christian. Malick means ‘King’ in Egyptian. I’m also French, German and English — a true American mongrel, which is great. I think it helps you relate to the world a little better and shows how we’re all connected to one another. I’m glad to be part of something that promotes tolerance and understanding among different ethnic groups.
