Wendy Williams: ‘Queen of All Media’ Producing Her Own Biopic for Lifetime

WENDY WILLIAMS

*Wendy Williams is ready to unpack her life story in a biopic she’s reportedly producing about her controversial life for Lifetime, airing next year.

The TV host is teaming with super-producer Will Packer for the project, which will chronicle her early days in radio up to her recent split from her husband and business partner Kevin Hunter, who allegedly knocked up his mistress Sharina Hudson. Williams also revealed earlier this year that she spent time in a sober living house and has battled various health issues.

The biopic is about “her scrappy upstart days in urban radio to the success of her own syndicated talk show,” a release said, via Page Six

In related news, Wendy says she supports A$AP Rocky but she’s not down with boycotting Sweden. 

When TMZ recently caught up with Williams, she shared her thoughts on Rocky’s situation, noting that his incarceration is partially due to the fact that he’s an American celebrity, the outlet reports. She also believes rappers who are calling for a boycott should concern themselves more with paying their own bills and taking care of their “ten baby mothers and stuff,” she said. 

Williams previously asked Kim Kardashian to use her White House connections to help free ASAP Rocky from a Swedish prison.

“I think this is something Kim should get involved in, and I’ll tell you why,” Wendy said on her July 17 show, explaining how Kim’s “involved with the law right now, and this would be a big feather in her cap if she can make this happen.”

She continued: “I don’t think she should be the main person, but get in touch with a law firm… and they need to handle it and Kim needs to be in the shadows, quietly making it happen. Or, she needs to go to the white house and try to figure something out.. and Kanye [West], please ask your wife to make this happen. Kim, if you’re watching, Kris call Kim! I think she should get involved with this.”
