Lifetime Releases 'Wendy Williams: The Movie' Trailer with Ciera Payton as the Talk Show Host - Watch!

The trailer for the Wendy Williams biopic has been released!

Lifetime released the trailer for Wendy Williams: The Movie with Ciera Payton playing the talk show host. The actress is best known for her work on the BET series Tyler Perry’s The Oval.

The trailer showcases Wendy‘s rise to fame, while also documenting her rocky relationship with ex-husband Kevin Hunter (played by Morocco Omari) and his alleged affair, and her substance abuse issues.

“You’re self-indulgent, you’re narcissistic, you’ve got a coke habit,” an off-screen character accuses at one point during the trailer.

Despite her lows, Wendy is ready to rule the world.

I am here to stay. Wendy Williams is not going anywhere,” Ciera as Wendy says. “I’m gonna come in like a hurricane.”

If you missed it, Wendy recently addressed fan concerns over her behavior.

Wendy Williams: The Movie – which is executive-produced by Wendy – will premiere on Saturday, January 30 on Lifetime!
