“I’m a champ and I’m back” – Wendy Williams after fainting on Live TV | WATCH



Wendy Williams faints on Live TV | WATCH - BellaNaija

Wendy Williams

Talk show host Wendy Williams, dressed as Lady Liberty, fainted during her show while introducing the Halloween costume contest she runs every year.

“We do it every year,” she said. “It’s always a lot of fun.”

But then, looking obviously distressed, she began to slur her words. “Let’s get started. Our first guest -” she said before stumbling and fainting.

A crew member quickly ran onstage to help.

Williams, not one to give up so easily, returned after a long break.

“That was not a stunt,” she said, “I overheated and did pass out, but I’m a champ and I’m back,” before announcing the winners of the costume contest.

Watch below:

      Don’t mind her. That was definitely a mini stroke and instead of stopping the show to go to Emergency Room to seek care, she’s there forming, I am strong and blaming it on heat exhaustion and continuing the show . Mschewwww. Next time you may not be lucky, you better take a break and seek medical help. All money ain’t good money.

      Wow Felinda! You do sound like someone offended you.
      That did not look like a mini-stroke at all. A mini stroke (called a TIA) usually manifests as a temporary weakness of a part of the body or a temporary loss of sight…it hardly manifests as outright collapse.

      She most likely fainted as a result of heat.

      It obvious from your comments that you do not like her… But your dislike of a person should not make you blind to the truth.

    She won’t go and eat. She is starving herself and working on an empty stomach. Why won’t she faint due to exhaustion?

    Am i the only one who thinks it may be a stunt? How does one collapse and make it look like a mini stroke as someone suggested above? It just doesn’t look natural to me.
