While she was live on-air for her Halloween episode, Wendy Williams collapsed during her speech. Check out what happened.
Wendy Williams was more than halfway through with her Halloween episode when something went really wrong.
She was reading the teleprompter, and she was dressed as the Statue of Liberty when suddenly, she went completely silent, and her face went blank.
She then began to stumble backward while staring, wide-eyed, into the camera. After that, she fell to the ground.
Camera operators immediately rushed to her aid, but the picture quickly faded to black and cut to commercial.
In the background, the audience members could be heard gasping as the whole thing went down.
Fortunately, Wendy was okay. She came back after the commercial break, and she made sure to tell her fans that she was okay, although she admitted to overheating in her costume.
She even made a joke to close out the episode: ‘Was I passed out for that long?!’ she asked when she realized that the hour was up.
For her Halloween costume, Wendy wore a skintight, green dress and she rocked a green wig to channel the Statue of Liberty.
All this might have been a bit too much with all the lights and cameras on her at once.
‘So crazy I just saw Wendy Williams pass out in person, but she got up and was a trooper,’ one person wrote on Twitter.
Another viewer added, ‘Praying for @WendyWilliams 🙁 I’ve passed out twice, and it’s a scary feeling.’ Someone else said that watching Wendy collapse was ‘one of the scariest things’ they’ve ever seen.
