‘Basically it was a regular night… and then all of the sudden the Wendy Williams train arrived,’ an insider said.
‘She had a huge crew that basically turned Fresco by Scotto into a movie set… approximately 30 people in the crew. Lights, cameras, audio, producers, etc. [It] looked like a reality show.’
