WENDY WILLIAMS PASSES OUT ON LIVE TVOctober 31, 2017
There was a terrifying moment this Halloween on Tuesday’s episode of The Wendy Williams Show as the program’s namesake host passed out on live television.
The 53-year-old fell to the floor as production staff raced to her side and the show cut to commercial.

The show returned after about five minutes with Wendy back on her feet and feeling better.
“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 told the audience.
Afterwards, a spokerson for the daytime show released a statement to give an update on Wendy’s health.
“Ms. Williams fainted on-air this morning. She is dehydrated and is on her way home for a good day and nite of sleep. She has been examined by medical professionals and is well. She is ok and will continue as shows as planned. She will address this on-air tomorrow.”
And like a true champ, Wendy then took to Twitter to reassure her fans that everything is fine and to boast about her sick Halloween costume.
“Everybody relax. I’m doing fine, just need some water and electrolytes,” she wrote to her more than 1.5 million followers. “On another note, I slayed and laid Halloween, LOL!”
