Wendy Williams Taps Robin Givens For Biopic: "I Know She's Only 90 Lbs [But] Who Do I Look Like?"


With the film based on her life due in theatres early 2008, SOHH caught up with Wendy Williams to discuss the arduous casting process and to learn how Robin Givens landed the star role, playing radio queen.

 Last year Williams held casting calls throughout the country searching for an actress to portray her in Queen of Media, a full-length feature film based on her New York Times best seller, Wendy's got the Heat. The casting process turned up a lot of Wendy look-a-likes but their mouthpieces just didn't match up.

"To me, diction was more important than anything," Wendy told SOHH. "I don't care if you look like my twin, I'm a radio personality. There's so much speaking in the movie. You've got to have the talk."

Williams and crew finally decided on an actress from Philadelphia and filming commenced on what was then billed as a straight to DVD movie. Two days into the filming process a Hollywood entity expressed interest in getting involved with the project, on one condition. "They said the one thing you have to do is you have to get a person that is more recognizable to play you."

The role eventually went to Robin Givens who Wendy admits doesn't quite look the part.

"I know she's only 5 feet 2 and I know she's only 90 pounds [but] who do I look like," Williams asked? "I'm 5 feet 11. I can't think of who could play me, who actually looks it, therefore [we went] with someone who speaks well and Robin did a good job."

Filming for the Queen of Media wrapped this summer, leaving Wendy to reflect on the time and money she spent on the project.

"If somebody told me Summer 2007 I wouldn't be able to get the bag of the season for the fall because all of my money was spent making a movie, I would never guess," Wendy told SOHH. "But I've never been so happy about investing in myself."

She' S The Self Proclaimed Queen On Media But Has No Credentials To Back It Up. T.i. Claimed To Be King Of The South & While Thats Arguable He Made A Good Stake In It. She Does Nothin But Gossip On The Radio. Far From Queen Of Anything. I See This Movie Being A Greater Flop Than Her Mix Cd

a gossiping c*nt like wendy williams doesn't deserve a biopic...save that for important historical figures, not some sh*t eating "radio personality."

Crazy Thing Is, I Never Hear Anyone Talking About Her Like She Matters In The "in Crowd". She Hypes Herself Up. If It Werent For Her Show, I Wouldnt Even Know Who She Is. She' S Funny Sometimes Bu Queen She' S Not. Maybe Where She' S From But No Futher Than That Region. That Would Be Like Me Saying Bay Bay Is The Undisputed King Of Club Hype Men. He Might Be In This Region But Thats It. Hell Id Put Him Over Her

her show is aight i used to listen to it when they played it down here

but really who wants see a movie about her life

and especially on the bigscreen

i probably wouldnt watch it if it was straight to dvd

maybe straight to bet or sumn

everyone already knows her history cause she talks about it every day

she wanted a break got it and then she sniffed alot of coke and then got clean

and now here she is
