Wendy Williams Faints on Air, Was Overheated in Halloween Costume

Wendy Williams Faints on Air, Was Overheated in Halloween Costume

Wendy Williams had a really scary moment during the live taping of her talk show, The Wendy Williams Show, on Tuesday (October 31).

The 53-year-old talk show host was dressed as the Statue of Liberty for Halloween and was introducing the costume contest on her show when all of a sudden it appeared as if she fell ill. Wendy fainted, and the screen cut to black on the live east coast feed.

When the show returned from commercial, Wendy told her viewers that she became overheated in the costume.

“That was not a stunt,” Wendy said when the show returned. “I overheated in my costume, and I did pass out. But you know what? I’m a champ, and I’m back.”

To see the video, head on over to TMZ.

    Seemed out of it and low energy through the whole show before it happened. She acted like she didn’t want to be there.

    she’s got something medically wrong. i have anemia and have fainted before maybe 4 times. far as i know you don’t stumble about, you pretty much just fall down or pass out in place. the fact she was kinda mumbling before and stumbling is too much warning for a true ‘faint’
