Cape Town - Although fans of talk show host Wendy Williams know her as the ultimate gossip queen, they can now see another side to her as she is currently executive producing a biopic about her life.

According to a press statement released by A+E Networks the movie Wendy will executive produced the biopic about her life, revealing the highs and lows she has experienced throughout the years.

The authorised project provides a revealing look at Wendy’s journey, from her scrappy upstart days in urban radio to the success of her own syndicated talk show. Despite all the naysayers and obstacles Wendy encountered throughout her life, her strength and determination have allowed her to thrive.

Page Six reports it which will be produced by the producer of hit-movie Girls Trip, Will Packer will be about “her scrappy upstart days in urban radio to the success of her own syndicated talk show,” and will air on Lifetime in 2020.

During one of her show’s episodes, Wendy reportedly shared more details about the biopic and also revealed that there would be a supporting documentary that would be released with the movie.

"There's also a documentary about my life. So, the movie will be two hours and then the documentary is going to be two hours... It's like a Wendy night on Lifetime. The documentary is gathering people in my life — not just my mom and dad and siblings and stuff, but old bosses or friends and people in the business, to talk about me behind my back," she said before adding that an “unknown actress” would be playing the role of Wendy.

With her moving into a sober house to the controversy surrounding her divorce to Kevin Hunter, this upcoming biopic should be very interesting.
