The former 'Wendy Williams Show' host reportedly only gets paid $100,000 per episode for the controversial Lifetime documentary 'Where is Wendy Williams?'.

AceShowbiz - Court documents have revealed that talk show icon Wendy Williams, 59, was promised just $100,000 per episode for the controversial Lifetime documentary titled "Where is Wendy Williams?"

The documentary, which aired in February this year, sparked widespread criticism for its portrayal of Williams' declining health. According to RadarOnline.com, the contract signed by Williams in early 2023 shortly before her diagnosis of primary progressive aphasia and frontotemporal dementia outlined her compensation.

Additionally, Williams received a daily stipend of $1,000 for hair and makeup for the shoot days. Her court-appointed guardian, Sabrina Morrissey, has since questioned the validity of the contract in a lawsuit against Lifetime's parent company, A&E Networks Television, LLC.

Sources close to Williams claim that she was exploited and misled into participating in the documentary due to her diminished mental capacity at the time. They allege that she was taken advantage of while under the influence of alcohol.

Williams' former income as a talk show host was estimated at $10 million per year. The stark contrast between her previous earnings and the compensation for the documentary has raised concerns about the ethics of the production. The scandal surrounding the documentary threatens to escalate into a costly lawsuit for Lifetime.
