Wendy Williams is producing a biopic about her troubled life for Lifetime, airing next year.
The TV host’s real life is certainly the stuff of a Lifetime movie: She recently sent her husband and business partner Kevin Hunter packing after he got mistress Sharina Hudson pregnant, while Williams spent time in a sober living house and has battled various health issues.
She’s making the movie with Will Packer — the hot producer behind “Girls Trip.”
The project’s about “her scrappy upstart days in urban radio to the success of her own syndicated talk show,” a release said.
“Boomerang” writer Leigh Davenport is penning the script.
Williams just celebrated her 55th birthday with breakfast at Tiffany (literally — at the jewelry store’s in-house cafe), plus dinner at Serendipity 3 and a cruise around Manhattan while wearing a tiara.
Lifetime, which was behind “Surviving R. Kelly,” is now also producing a “Surviving Jeffrey Epstein” series.
