Wendy Williams: The Movie stars Ciera Payton as Wendy Williams, the popular talk show host who has experienced many emotional struggles throughout her lifem, and Morocco Omari stars as Williams’ ex-husband Kevin Hunter. Williams herself executive producers the biopic, which aims to reveal “the highs and lows she has experienced throughout the years.”

The description from the Lifetime press release reads, “Wendy has made herself the go-to source for great celebrity dish on her hit talk show, The Wendy Williams Show, but recently the spotlight has turned towards her. The authorized 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.”

In a recent interview with Forbes, Williams said the hardest part about executive producing a biopic about herself was trying to fit everything in that she thought was important to show.

“It’s hard to narrow [it] down. You know my career is over 35 years as a paid personality and I take that very seriously,” said Williams. “There are little things and big things that needed to be incorporated in this movie in order for it to all make sense – to explain who the girl is that is still coming through the double doors, [hosting] her own talk show.”

She also told Forbes that she does not shy away from dramatizing her sexual assault. Williams said she was date raped two different times, one by an R&B singer named Sherrick and one other time in college. She said it was actually nice to put some distance between herself and those events.

“I had a lot of fun doing this movie because it almost didn’t even seem like I was talking about me. [At times] I [sat] back and said, ‘I can’t believe I survived that!’” said Williams.

Wendy Williams: The Movie premieres Saturday, January 30 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime, followed immediately by The Wendy Williams Story… What a Mess!, a feature-length documentary about Williams’ life.
