How YOU doin’? No, seriously, how is Wendy Williams doing? The talk show host fainted during a costume contest segment for her Halloween-themed show on Tuesday. Dressed in a sparkling Statue of Liberty getup, Williams began to slur her words as she announced the contest winners and wobbled backward before dropping to the floor without warning. Then the show immediately cut to black, as the audience members screamed with concern and crew members rushed to her side.
After a lengthy commercial break, Williams regained consciousness and explained her fall, finishing the show without further issues. “That was not a stunt. I overheated in my costume and I passed out,” she told the audience. “I am a champ, and I am back.” Following the show, Williams released a statement on her official Twitter account thanking fans for their support.
