Season 10 of “The Wendy Williams Show” saw the show’s host, Wendy Williams dealing with some of the biggest challenges in her life concerning her health, her addiction, and her marriage. As such, Williams couldn’t help but become emotional in bidding the season goodbye.

THE STUFF SHE WANTED TO FORGET

The stuff she was referring to was the series of trials she went through the past months beginning with her battle with her health issues including her recurring Graves disease and a fractured shoulder that caused her to go on extended holiday leave earlier this year. 

Shortly after returning to her show in March, she opened up about her past struggle with cocaine addiction and revealed that she was living in a sober house

“You’ve seen me pass out the season, you’ve read [about me] in tabloids and the paparazzi and all that, but through it all, my one joy — aside from my son and my family — is you.”

All this time, she also faced rumors of her husband, Kevin Hunter’s infidelity which she persistently denied. However, when news of him fathering a child with his longtime mistress surfaced, Williams was prompted to file for divorce and end their marriage of more than two decades.  

Since Hunter was also the executive producer of her show and her partner in The Hunter Foundation, the 55-year-old fired him from the show and dissolved the foundation

A BIOPIC IN THE HORIZON

Though Williams’ fans have witnessed her life unfold throughout the years, her biopic is reportedly in the works. The Lifetime movie titled “Just Wendy” is expected to shed more details about her life from age ten to present. It will include her rise to fame, her addiction, and a never-before-heard account of her being raped by a famous artist. Williams will reportedly have a huge hand in writing the screenplay but will not be playing herself in it. 

The film is scheduled to air sometime next year and we’re certain it will be as much a hot topic as any hot topic she dishes on her show.
