Early in the documentary, Williams admitted to struggling with different body issues when she was little. Her first diet had been "tuna fish and mustard in a plastic container, a few grapes on the side."
Her dad had told her that she had a pretty face but needed to lost weight. She developed bulimia later. She stopped after she had read that it had caused tooth rot in a Hollywood actress.

Her solution to her weight issues came in the form of plastic surgery. The talk show host had a breast implant and liposuction, which happened in two sessions. She said what her doctor had told her:
"You know, Wendy, it's gonna take two sessions. So we'll do your breast implants and the first part of liposuction first."
In the documentary, she shared that she had been sexually assaulted by an up-and-coming rapper who she had on her radio show during the early part of her radio career.
A producer had asked her why she did not mention his name. She shared that it was her story to tell. It had made her more focused and determined to move on.
Williams filed for divorce from Hunter in 2019, after he had got his mistress, Sharina Hudson, pregnant.
4. A NOTORIOUS DATE
During her career, she was always linked to Notorious B.I.G. She revealed that she had used their date to gain attention for her business and help her succeed.
She had gone with B.I.G, whose name is Christopher Wallace, to the Shark Bar. At the local hanging out spot, she had held his hand and hoped to be in the pages of Page Six the next day.
5. BAD HABITS
Williams picked up a bad cocaine habit as she worked the overnight shifts on the radio and used the drug to stay awake. She shared a scary moment she had during her using drugs:
"There was one particular night where I go to the bathroom, standing in the mirror, take my hit, pass all the way out down to the ground. My head hit the wall and I woke up."
6. A TOTAL SITUATION
Williams is known for her sharp tongue. Unfortunately during her career, it got her into some serious trouble. She had said something about Puffy's R&B group TOTAL and it upset the members.
