NOT A STUNT! Wendy Williams faints on live TV while dressed for Halloween, then rallies to thunderous applause

It was a truly terrifying moment for everyone watching Wendy Williams on Tuesday, but the scares had nothing to do with Halloween.

While introducing the show’s annual Halloween costume contest, Williams began to stammer before shaking and stumbling backwards and collapsing to the floor. The screen quickly cut to black, leaving everyone watching in shock.

When the show came back on, Williams spoke confidently while the audience delivered a thunderous applause.

“That was not a stunt. I overheated in my costume and I did pass out. But you know what? I’m a champ and I’m back,” she told viewers.

A rep for The Wendy Williams Show said, “She overheated because of her heavy costume, makeup, and lights.”

Williams tweeted out a statement saying she was “doing fine.”
