Wendy Williams is beaming about Lifetime’s movie and documentary covering her life and career, and not only because they’re helping her get revenge on her ex-husband.
The talk show host joined “TMZ Live” Friday and in true Wendy fashion was not afraid to throw equal amounts of shade — for Kevin Hunter — and praise … for the cast of her biopic.
Wendy tells us she developed a friendship with Ciera Payton — the actress playing her in “Wendy Williams: The Movie” — and says she really put her all into the role. Same goes for Morocco Omari — who Wendy says she hand-picked to play Kevin.
As you know … Kevin and Wendy were together for more than 20 years, have a son together and worked together, but things ended very bitterly. Actually, as she explained, it was bitter long before the end.
“Wendy Williams: The Movie” and the companion documentary, “Wendy Williams: What a Mess!” premiere Saturday night on Lifetime — and yes … she’ll be watching.
More importantly, Wendy — who’s executive producer on both projects — hopes someone else is watching. Check out her chat with us … classic Wendy.
