She revealed that she had her whole life planned out at ten years old. Remarkably, everything has turned out exactly, if not better, than she imagined it would be. She said:

"I'm highly successful because I've been through a lot, and most of it I've had to figure out by myself."

Though her life has gone well, Williams has experienced some nasty situations too. For instance, she was date-raped as a young woman, an experience she was too ashamed to even report to the police.

In 2019, Williams suffered heartbreak when she ended her relationship with former husband Kevin Hunter after over twenty years of marriage.

She accused Hunter of being a serial cheater and found out that he had impregnated his mistress. The 56-year-old has also undergone treatment for substance abuse in the past.

Williams has been in multiple celebrity feuds with stars like Joaquin Phoenix, Beyoncé, and many more.

However, Williams is grateful for these experiences and said she is highly successful today because she has been through a lot. She also said she had to figure out most of her success herself.

Williams' remarkable story would be told to the world via two Lifetime features, a movie titled "Wendy Williams: The Movie," and a documentary titled "Wendy Williams… What a Mess."

She said Lifetime came to her for the biopic. The mother of one had written her autobiography in 2003, which she said was as transparent as the movie, the only difference that she has been through much more since then.

Williams added that she and Lifetime were impressed with the movie's outcome and that it would make watchers laugh and cry; however, Williams could not wait to see people's reaction to her movie.

Williams, who has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, has been in multiple celebrity feuds with stars like Joaquin Phoenix, Beyoncé, and many more because of her fearless way of speaking her mind.

However, with some of her nasty childhood experiences, which include being tortured and fat-shamed while growing up, a celebrity feud is the last thing Williams would run away from.

One can even say she lives for it, and as the countdown to her biopic and documentary continues, her fans will be looking forward to more of Wendy Williams.
