Wendy Williams panicked her studio audience and viewers at home when she took a tumble and passed out during her live Halloween special.
The TV host was dressed as the Statue of Liberty for the festive show and was mid-sentence when she stopped and stared blankly at the camera before stumbling backward from the podium. Audience members seemed confused about whether or not this was a Halloween trick as nervous laughter could be heard before Williams collapsed to the ground.
Her staff can be seen running to her aide before the show cut to a commercial.
When the show returned from commercial break, Williams seemed unfazed by the incident as she addressed the audience.
“That was not a stunt. I overheated in my costume, and I did pass out,” she said as the audience cheered. “But, you know what? I’m a champ and I’m back!”
We’re glad she’s okay!
