Wendy Williams Recounts Her On-Air Collapse One Year Later
The talk show host reflects on the scary moment, which took place last Halloween.
Halloween is spooky for most people, but last October 31 was especially scary for Wendy Williams, who fainted live on the air. It was during the 2017 broadcast when she collapsed during her talk show while dressed as the Statue of Liberty. Shortly after, Wendy addressed the moment, alluding to the fact that hot flashes may have been the cause: "I was going through what middle-aged women go through. The costume got hot, all of a sudden, right before passing out, I felt like I was in the middle of a campfire."
Well, one year later, the talk show maven is reflecting on the fainting incident. Dressed as the Queen of Hearts, Wendy discussed the moment on her talk show on Wednesday.
“Halloween. You know, it’s not my favorite date, it never has been. For all of my life, it never has been,” she said on the Halloween episode of The Wendy Williams Show, via Us Weekly. “Of course, it’s also the one-year anniversary of my faintation, so the day doesn’t necessarily bring up a good mood to me. But I’m dressed up, 'cause I tell you, I love you for watching and you know I’ve got my heart necklace and all that.”
Earlier this year, in February, Wendy took a short leave of absence from her talk show as she faced a health issue. She later revealed she had been diagnosed with Graves' disease, which is an immune system disorder of the thyroid, and hyperthyroidism.
