As a Wendy Watcher I was totally horrified when I witnessed Wendy Williams collapse on live tv on Tuesday.
But thankfully the talk show maven was fine and eager to tell the tale on Wednesday.
‘It was scary. Scary! It was really scary,’ she said through tears.
‘All of I could think of, though, in the middle of scare: “Don’t pull the podium over on you because that’ll make for worse”.’
The 53-year-old stumbled over and fell to the ground while dressed as the Statue of Liberty during the Halloween-themed episode.
Crew members were seen rushing to her aid before the show cut to commercials.
The mom-of-one revealed that tests from paramedics showed she was lacking electrolytes and was dehydrated.
‘First of all, I was trending all day,’ she said while smiling. ‘Fabulous!’
She continued: ‘A lot of people thought it was a joke. Me fainting on my set. You know 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. I don’t do stunts and jokes for you.’
But some have still speculated that the faint was fake and several took to Twitter to make jokes about the incident.
‘Wendy Williams fainted and they made her a meme before she hit the floor,’ one user tweeted.
‘Wendy Williams fainting while dressed as the Statue of Liberty is the perfect metaphor for 2017,’ wrote another.
Toward the end of her Halloween special, the popular TV host suddenly began to wobble and stagger backwards before dropping to the floor.
The talk show then went to black.
After a lengthy commercial break, the episode returned to show the co- hosts (Wendy’s name for her audience members) clapping enthusiastically.
‘That was not a stunt. I overheated in my costume and I passed out. I am a champ, and I am back,’ said Williams when the show returned.
