Wendy Williams returned to work on her daytime talk show Wednesday after fainting on live television during the show’s Halloween special.
The 53-year-old was upbeat and then turned quite emotional after she gave her recollection of Tuesday’s scary incident. She assured the audience that it was not a stunt or joke, but during a briefing by a producer 48 minutes into the show, she “felt it” coming on.
“I’m like, ‘Alright, Wendy, at least you’re wearing flats and you’re holding on to this and there’s only 12 more minutes of the show. You can do it, girl,” said Wendy to her audience.
“It was scary,” she recalled as she began to tear up. “It was really scary.”
“If it’s gonna go down, it’s going to be as cute as I can make it,” she joked. “I’m going down with the crown.”
“I’m a 53-year-old middle-aged woman going through what middle-aged women go through if you know what I mean,” she quipped. “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,” she said. “For people who thought that I was [stroking out] trying to get this chair next, nope, I’m here for a long time.”
LOL. That’s Wendy!
