Wendy Williams gave viewers a fright Tuesday when she passed out on live TV.
The morning show host, 53, dressed as the Statue of Liberty for Halloween, was mid-sentence when she suddenly stopped talking, lost her balance and collapsed. The show then cut to an extended commercial break before Williams came back on-air and addressed the audience.
“That was not a stunt,” a smiling Williams explained. “I’m overheated in my costume and did not pass out. But you know what? I’m a champ and I’m back.”
While she didn’t appear shaken or jolted by the snafu, Williams was leaning on a clear podium and wearing flats — her signature style while walking through the audience or walking back and forth on stage.
Before signing off, she asked, “Is that the end of the show? Was I passed out that long?!”
