Wendy Williams faints, collapses during live TV incident

NEW YORK — Wendy Williams fainted during her live TV show on Tuesday.

While wearing a Statue of Liberty Halloween costume, Williams is shown wobbling and staggering backward before falling to the floor.

Williams, who was visibly shaken before collapsing, was immediately cared for by her staffers and producers.

The show immediately went to commercial break.

After returning from the break, Williams said: “That was not a stunt. I overheated in my costume. … I did pass out. But you know what? I’m a champ and I’m back.”

Moments later, Williams joked about the incident and asked the audience: “Was I passed out for that long?”
