Wendy Williams had a scary Halloween on Tuesday when she fainted during a live broadcast of her self-titled talk show.
The 53-year-old media personality was dressed as the iconic Statue of Liberty for her annual Halloween show, wearing a costume designed by Ceasar Galindo that included a green wig, sparkly crown, matching heels and long-sleeve sequin dress.
About 48 minutes into the broadcast — and after making it through the show’s Hot Topics segment, an interview with Jerry O’Connell and an “Ask Wendy” audience bit — Williams appeared behind a plastic podium, ready to kick off the “How You Doin’ Halloween Costume Contest.”
But while announcing the segment, Williams began slurring her words. She then slowed down and started swaying back and forth before stumbling backwards and catching herself.
Stunned and scared, Williams looked at the camera for help, raising her head up to her crown. But just as quick as it had happened, she swiftly dropped to the floor — the show’s crew running to help her and the camera cutting to commercial.
