Viewers around the world witnessed  Wendy Williams apparently fainting during a live taping of The Wendy Williams Show on October 31. While wearing a Statue of Liberty Halloween costume, Wendy was seen bobbling and staggering backward before falling to the floor. The talk show host, who was visibly shaken prior to collapsing, was immediately cared for by her staffers and producers. The incident happened about 48 minutes into the 1-hour show, which immediately went to commercial break. After returning from the break, Wendy said: “That was not a stunt. I overheated in my costume, and I did pass out. But you know what? I’m a champ, and I’m back.” In a statement, Wendy’s rep said: “Ms. Williams fainted on-air this morning. She is dehydrated and is on her way home for a good day and night of sleep. She has been examined by medical professionals and is well. She is ok and will continue shows as planned.”……….
