There was a terrifying moment on The Wendy Williams Show today as the iconic host collapsed on live TV this morning.
Williams, 53, was talking when she suddenly seemed disoriented, reached for her temple, stumbled backward and then suddenly collapsed.
It was a shocking sight.
Hysteria took over as horrified in-studio viewers watched a panicked camera crew rush to Wendy’s aid to render assistance.
Paramedics also were reportedly dispatched to the studio.
After a commercial break, though, all seemed to be well. Williams spoke on the fearsome incident:
“That was not a stunt. I overheated in my costume. I passed out”, she said, then added, “I’m a champ and I’m back.”
Williams was dressed as the Statue Of Liberty for Halloween.
Some fans feared Williams had suffered a mild stroke. But a tweet from Wendy’s account confirmed that the host was now just fine.
