Ciera Payton admits that one of the “most challenging things” playing Wendy Williams makes her tits come out well.
The New Orleans native told The Post that producers and wardrobe people for Lifetime’s upcoming “Wendy Williams: The Movie” have had numerous meetings “trying to figure out how to make it look realistic.”
Finally, Payton raised his hand and said that in his biopic hearing he wore silicone socks and cuffs “and that it worked.”
So the wardrobe department allegedly purchased a massive amount of socks “and we glued and pushed on.”
“We had a lot and they were very, very heavy, and quite honestly I don’t know how to do it,” Peyton said, laughing. “I myself and what I have on my body is extremely humble.”
The 35-year-old actress revealed that she was “very painful” at the end of each day but was able to receive massages to relieve some of the back pain.
Peyton said she began preparing to play the audience for candid discussion before she even auditioned for the revealing film, which comes out in the evening at 8 pm Saturday.
Last summer, Peyton said people started tweeting and tagging Williams, 56, telling them that Peyton should play Williams if a film was ever made about the life of the average personality.
“I’m a big believer in once you’ve put things out there and started taking action,” Peyton said, “and I thought if that happens I want to be prepared. So I started sweeping over my Wendy Williams. and to watch his show and, lo and behold, in January 2020, I had the audition, I had the callback and I had to meet with the producers and I had it. ”
The “Oval” star said there’s a lot to admire about Williams, which in recent years she divorced she allegedly and philanthropic husband Kevin, was open on it history of drug addiction and they beat Graves’ disease.
After playing Williams, Peyton said she has a “more recent and deeper respect and admiration for her journey … I find her just to be so resilient and charming.”
In addition to his growing workload, Peyton also manages his nonprofit organization, the Michael’s Daughter Foundation, which provides arts programs for children affected by incarceration. It’s a cause that has a very personal connection: Peyton’s father spent time incarcerated because of drug abuse.
“My father played a big part in raising me. He raised me and he was one of the most amazing and so funny people, and it was just one of the things he fought for – drug abuse, ”he said.
“A lot of what it takes to be a prisoner is rehabilitation,” he said. “It’s a system that [definitely] it must be reformed. The humanization of the people behind the barrels is the key. A lot of the work I do is preventative measures. I want young people to look at how they can break these cycles in their families. ”
