Wendy Williams is having one helluva year! In addition to the announcement about her receiving a coveted star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the “queen of all media” is now the subject of an upcoming biopic for Lifetime. Super producer Will Packer is bringing her story to the small screen and will begin production this fall.
According to S&A, the film will showcase the highs and lows Williams has experienced throughout the years. It will also follow her journey from urban radio to the success of her talk show, The Wendy Williams Show.
As if the biopic wasn’t enough, Lifetime will also be airing a documentary about Williams that is being produced by Entertainment (eOne) and Creature films.
My pick for the lead role is…TAMI ROMAN. I believe she has the heart and grit that it would take to play Wendy in a movie. I also think Tami can relate to Williams’ ambitious pursuit of fortune and fame as a Black woman in entertainment and channel that through her performance.
