About Wendy Riche, Zeman has been quoted as saying, "God love her, I think she was an awesome producer. I would like to go on record as saying that when Wendy Riche was producing General Hospital, it had heart, and soul, and storylines that will resonate for the rest of my life. I just think she has so much to offer. That woman is amazing."

She grew up in Bergenfield, New Jersey and completed her high school studies at age 15 at Bergenfield High School, after which she studied dance on a scholarship at New York University.[2] She was a Playboy Bunny at the Playboy Club in 1972.[3]
