In 2008, Wendy Williams’ autobiography Wendy’s Got the Heat was turned into a $3 million movie called Queen of Media and it starred Robin Givens in the title role. The movie never saw the light of a theater, a basic cable channel or even a discount bin at Best Buy. Wendy said a few years ago that the movie will never be released because the finished product wasn’t up to her standards. I’ve seen how Wendy dresses, so I know her standards aren’t that high! There has to be another reason for why she didn’t want the public to see this, because judging by the trailer alone, it is a magnificent work of HIGH ART!
The trailer was leaked onto YouTube in October, but it’s been making the rounds the past few days. The $3 million budget must have been spent on the shit everyone involved smoked while making it because it wasn’t spent on production values, wigs or a passable Diddy impersonator. This 3-minute-long trailer is pure perfection from Salt-N-Pepa’s cameo to “Wendy” doing Kristen Stewart’s one facial expression while wall sliding after getting high.
It’s a sad time in Hollywood when movies like The Martian get nominated for Best Picture while cinematic jewels like this are kept from the public!
