Wendy Williams Gets Emotional While Talking About Her On-Air Faint Heard ‘Round The World, Claims It Was NOT Fake!
Yesterday we shared a pretty bizarre/terrifying video with you all. If you missed it, don’t worry. Click on that play button above, and you’ll see talk show host Wendy Williams passing out on camera. It looks more like she saw a ghost, or was possibly possessed by a spirit, but Williams claims it was nothing more than a simple faint.
During her show on Wednesday, she talked about the scary incident. She said she was 48 minutes into the Halloween-themed episode on Tuesday, and she had been wearing her lady liberty costume for a long time. She was starting to feel extremely hot, and while she was being briefed by a producer in her ear, she felt it coming, “It was scary. It was really scary,” she told the audience.
Many people (me included) thought she was either faking it or possibly having a stroke because of her weird behavior before dropping, but the 53-year-old host claims she was just trying to look as cute as possible, “If it’s gonna go down, it’s going to be as cute as I can make it. I’m going down with the crown.”
She says she simply pushed herself too hard. The paramedics who checked her out after the show said her heart rate and blood pressure were fine. She was low on electrolytes, though, which basically means she was overheated and a bit dehydrated.
“I’m a 53-year-old middle-aged woman going through what middle-aged women go through if you know what I mean. The costume got hot. All the sudden right before passing out, I felt like I was in the middle of a campfire. I want to thank you all for your tweets and your flowers and my colleagues in this game on TV, I got all of your well wishes.”
Well, damn. I guess it was real. I would say that I feel bad for saying it was fake, but I mean…can you really blame me? I suppose if she were trying to fake passing out, she would have made it more realistic. So maybe the fact that it looked outrageously fake means it was real. #shrug
