Wendy started her career working at MTV and VH1 in production, series and specials including “TRL” and The VMAs. After writing and developing programming at Lifetime and Oxygen, she became the head writer for major live events like Glamour’s star-studded Women of the Year Awards & Summit, The National Magazine Awards, and The GLAAD Media Awards. The pandemic opened up new opportunities writing and producing in the virtual/livestream space, including iHeart Media’s “Can’t Cancel Pride,” HBO Max’s “Home School Musical” and the “Feelin’ A-Live: Fast Times at Ridgemont High” virtual table read featuring Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts and Brad Pitt, with over 5 million views.
Wendy’s byline has appeared in Glamour, Self, Shape, Cosmopolitan, and Us Weekly (The Fashion Police). She has written two books: a humorous, hopeful memoir about women and body image, The Fat Girl’s Guide to Life (Bloomsbury USA); and more recently, Are You My Guru?: How Medicine, Meditation & Madonna Saved My Life (Penguin/NAL). Her latest book, co-authored with Beth Behrs, star of the CBS hit comedies “The Neighborhood” and “2 Broke Girls,” is The Total ME-Tox: How to Ditch Your Diet, Move Your Body & Love Your Life (Hachette Book Group). She’d love to tell you about the other books she’s working on with A-list celebs, but she’s got NDAs up to here!
