Wendy Williams is a daytime television veteran. She has hosted her own show, The Wendy Williams Show, since 2008, and before that she was a radio host for many years. She won “Best On-Air Personality” in 1993.
Williams’s show is always known for its high-energy and pointed questions to guests, always trying to stir the pot. But during her Halloween episode, Williams passed out on live television.
She began to stumble on her words, and her feet. Within seconds she had hit the ground, completely passed out. The show immediately cut to black, but not before viewers could see the producers and crew rush to help the host.
“That was not a stunt. I overheated in my costume and I did pass out,” Williams later said.
But it turns out that her collapse was a signal of something more serious.
