Everyone is excited about the upcoming release of the Wendy Williams biopic on Lifetime next month. And now MTO News has the full trailer, which is hot...and the movie will be even hotter.
Darren Grant, the director of the Lifetime movie, was a guest on “The Wendy Williams Show” Thursday and in anticipation of the release, Wendy invited him to watch the movie her apartment on premiere night. She said:
“There’s some sex scenes between me and Kevin, I can’t wait,” she told Grant.
“There’s sex, there’s drugs, there’s music, it’s all in there,” he said.
Talk show host Wendy Williams executive produced the biopic on her life, which shows all the highs and lows she has experienced throughout the years.
The trailer shows depicts headline-making moments in Williams’ life, including the time she fainted in her Statue of Liberty Halloween costume when she was hosting “The Wendy Williams Show,” her ex-husband Kevin Hunter’s infidelity and her struggles with drug addiction.
Ciera Payton (”The Oval,” “She’s Gotta Have It”) takes on the lead role while Morocco Omari (”Empire”) stars as Wendy's ex-husband, Kevin Hunter. The film was previously titled “Wendy Williams: The Hot Topic.”
