Wendy Williams Earned $100,000 Per Episode of Documentary

by Cedric ‘BIG CED’ Thornton

The amount of money that former talk show host Wendy Williams made from the Lifetime documentary, “Where Is Wendy Williams,” was revealed via court documents seen by Radar Online.

The contract offerings were revealed after Williams’ temporary guardian, Sabrina Morrissey, filed the lawsuit against Lifetime (the network showcasing the film) and A+E Networks. She filed the paperwork in hopes of stopping the documentary from airing, but A+E Networks formally filed an appeal on Feb. 23, the day before the airing. Morrissey also sought injunctive relief for Williams.
Radar Online reported that Morrissey also stated that Williams didn’t know what she was signing and would have been against anyone seeing her disorientated, under the influence, and “in an obviously disabled state,” according to court documents.

“She was not, and is not, capable of consenting to the terms of the documentary Contract.”
“And no one acting in [Wendy’s] best interest would allow her to be portrayed in the demeaning manner in which she is portrayed in the Trailer for the documentary.”
