Daytime TV host Wendy Williams has the gift of gab, but it appears that even the most talented public speakers have off days. During a recent taping of The Wendy Show, our girl continuously stammered, stuttered and stumbled over her words. While most people probably didn’t pay much attention to it, once she was backstage, Wendy broke down in tears, explaining to her team that this was a pretty big deal.
“If I hadn’t eaten breakfast, I would’ve said because I was hungry. But I started to feel weird out there. First time this ever happened,” Wendy said during the after show.
“I was up there doing ‘Ask Wendy’ and talking to the pregnant lady. I’m like, ‘Oh God, of all days for me to fall out and I fall on the pregnant lady.”
She went on to say that she panicked and began to question whether or not she was having a stroke on-air.
“I felt really, really weird today…I’m a pretty clean talker, but that stuttering you know, it happens once, it happens twice. After a few times I’m looking at me like, ‘What are you having, a stroke?’”
When someone on her staff suggested that low blood sugar was the culprit, Wendy responded:
“Maybe, but what do you do eat candy? I eat so much candy, I should have the highest blood sugar on the planet.”
“I don’t know. I’m going to the doctor. How about that?” she continued. “Or maybe I just need to go home and sit down.”
Poor Wendy. We hope she feels better!
