Wendy Williams Passes Out on Live TV; Rallies Like a Champ
Wendy Williams fainted during her live syndicated television broadcast on Tuesday, quickly recovering to return for her show’s final segment. While wearing a Statue of Liberty costume, Williams began to introduce a costume contest, but stumbled through the script before looking stunned, wobbling back a few steps, and passing out to the floor. The camera cut to black. Several minutes later, the show returned with her back on-camera, addressing the audience: “That was not a stunt. I’m overheated in my costume and I did pass out. But, you know what, I’m a champ, and I’m back,” she said to rapturous applause.
