Wendy Williams Responds To Critics Who Say She Fake Fainted On Live TV

It was on the Halloween edition of the Wendy Williams Show when the host suddenly fainted during a segment called ‘How You Booin.’ Wendy herself was dressed as the Statue of Liberty for Halloween and in the video, she can be seen stumbling, at a loss for words, and then suddenly she falls over.


The viewers can hear the audience gasp as Wendy topples over and the viewers are left in suspense as the show quickly cuts to commercials. When the show returns on air, Wendy can be seen standing on her two feet and back at work once again.

In the short clip, she says: ‘that was not a stunt. I overheated in my costume. I did pass out, but you know what? I’m a champ, and I’m back.’ Later in the week, the show put out a statement that read: ‘Wendy is feeling much better. She overheated because of her heavy costume, makeup, and lights. She was able to finish the show in true Wendy spirit. She will address the incident on tomorrow’s show.’

However, some fans were unsure whether the fainting was a Halloween publicity stunt or something that was genuine. A user called Rachel went on Twitter to write: ‘is this like a Halloween thing or is ya girl ok?’
