How Wendy Williams Feels After Her On-Air Collapse

How Wendy Williams Feels After Her On-Air Collapse

Williams, who boasts that she hasn't missed a single day during her nine seasons on the air, isn't about to now, so she will be in on Monday. She overheated because of her heavy costume, makeup, and lights. "It was really scary" Williams said with tears in her eyes because that truly is a scary thing to experience and on live television at that.

Wendy was dressed as the Statue of Liberty for the live Halloween show and was introducing a segment about Halloween costumes when she suddenly stopped talking, began visibly shaking, lost her balance and collapsed Deadline reports. The condition is known to cause hot flashes, sleep disturbances, anxiety and dizziness. "I'm also going through menopause". "But you know what, I'm a champ and I'm back". "Unfortunately, we went to commercial, so nobody saw it".

When Robach countered that Williams' body was possibly telling her she needed a break, Williams replied: "Maybe". "Starting down at my feet going all the way up to my top". "I was more concerned with, 'When I fall am I going to crack my skull?'" "Fainting is not something ... that I do", she added. "It was so scary, all I could think of in the middle of the scare was, 'Don't pull the podium over on you, because that'll make it worse'". We're always doing tricks and stunts. So nobody came out, until I hit the ground.

It looks to have been a genuinely frightening moment for Wendy; the veteran talk show clearly seemed emotional while discussing it with the studio audience.

"No, I wasn't stroking out", Williams said. She explained: "I went to my own doctors and I'm fine, including blood work". "A lot of people thought it was a joke". "You're only as good as your last performance". You know, it was a catsuit, people might have thought it was a dress, it wasn't a dress'.
