Wendy Williams Faints On Live TV (Video)
Scary moment for Wendy Williams today.
This morning, during a live taping of her talk show, Wendy Williams passed out. Dressed up as the Statue Of Liberty for Halloween, Wendy was in the middle of a segment introducing the show’s annual Halloween costume contest, “We do it every year, it’s always a lot of fun — let’s get started.”
All of a sudden, Wendy becomes disoriented, before shaking and falling down. A crew member can be scene rushing to Wendy’s aid before the show cut to an instant commercial break.
Following the commercial break, Wendy returned back to the stage, still dressed in her costume. Apparently, Wendy became overheated in her costume, “That was not a stunt. I was overheated in my costume, I did pass out. But you know what? I’m a champ, and I’m back.”
Refusing to let her health scare ruin the show, Wendy announced the contest’s winners, even throwing in a joke about the incident, “Is that the end of the show? Was I passed out that long?”
Wendy’s spokesman, Ronn Torossian, later released the following statement, “Ms. Williams fainted on-air this morning. She is dehydrated and is on her way home for a good day and nite of sleep. She has been examined by medical professionals and is well. She is ok and will continue as shows as planned. She will address this on-air tomorrow. She has never missed a day of work and is looking forward on November 13th to her 1500th show.”
Get well soon Wendy!
