Day After Passing Out On Live TV, Wendy Williams Cries While Discussing Her Situation
Yesterday, Wendy Williams turned heads when she passed put while live on television. Dressed as the Statue of Liberty, Wendy was in the middle of hosting her annual costume test when she collapsed onstage. Of course, even that didn’t hold Wendy down. After the commercial break, she came back onstage and finished like a champ. But that doesn’t mean the situation didn’t scare her.
A Terrifying Moment:
Today, when the show aired, she recalled what happened and shared her honest opinion of the disheartening ordeal. Although Wendy dominated the trends yesterday, she took a moment to shed light on the whole situation. Of course, Wendy made headlines because she fainted but another reason for all of the headlines was because of speculation. Apparently, lots of people speculated that the fainting fiasco was nothing more than a publicity stunt. So Wendy wanted to set the record straight.
“First of all, I was trending all day — fabulous,” she began. “But a lot of people thought that was a joke. No, that was a not a joke. I don’t want to fall. I’m a tall woman, and it’s a long way down. I’m also a woman of a particular age, and I’m not trying to break anything. Also I don’t do stunts and jokes for you like that. I don’t need that.”
Wendy went on to explain how drastically things changed during the commercial break at 48 minutes into the show. She quickly began to feel “hot and dizzy.”
As she was talking to me, all I heard was ‘blah, blah, blah’ and all I’m thinking is, ‘Wendy, oh my gosh,’ ” she recalled. “The crew brought out the clear plexiglass podium that you saw — we were about to do our Halloween costume contest. I was like, ‘All right, Wendy. At least you’re wearing flats and you’re holding onto this and there’s only 12 more minutes of the show. You can do it girl.’ ”
“So we come back from the break, I heard nothing that she said,” she said. “I immediately go to the teleprompter … and that’s when you saw me with the eyes.”
Wendy continued, “So we come back from the break, I heard nothing that she said,” she said. “I immediately go to the teleprompter … and that’s when you saw me with the eyes.”
“It was scary,” she continued, choking up. “It was really scary. It was so scary, all I could think of in the middle of the scare was, ‘Don’t pull the podium over on you, because that’ll make it worse.’”
She went on to explain why she grabbed the back of her head before collapsing. “That was because I promised myself two things,” she said. “First of all, this is never going to happen again. Second of all, if it’s going to go down, it’s got to be as cute as I could make it. So I’m going down with the crown, and I’m not pulling this plexiglass podium to break my bones.”
“They told me that I went down on my booty first … rolled onto my back, then, boom — on my head,” she continued. “I have no headache, no lump on my head. At 53 years old, no aching in my body. I am shocked.”
The shocking moment led to chaos everywhere, especially on social media.
Wendy’s response today follows lots of talk on yesterday. As expected, Wendy’s fainting moment has become to basis for tons of memes and jokes all over social media. But of course, Wendy is unbothered by all of the talk. However, her staff has reportedly raised concerns about her health since yesterday’s scare. But hopefully everything is fine with Wendy.
