From her rise to fame and drug addiction to her estranged husband’s cheating scandal: absolutely nothing is left on the table in the first trailer for Wendy Williams‘ Lifetime biopic.

The media mogul is the executive producer for the film and will feature The Oval and She’s Gotta Have It star, Ciera Payton. In the trailer, Payton reenacts a few of the talk show host’s most viral moments — including her collapse on live television.

“Before I had you, I had me. And not you nor anyone else have the power to take away my gifts,” Payton claims in the trailer.

Morocco Omari (Empire) will portray the Emmy nominated’s former manager and husband, Kevin Hunter.

In 2019, TV One reported that after 21 years of marriage, the New Jersey native filed for divorce. Although rumors had surfaced of Hunter’s infidelity months prior, it wasn’t until the 56-year-old discovered that her estranged husband was the father to a daughter with another woman.
