“That was not a stunt. I overheated in my costume I did pass out,” she told a live audience. “But you know what, I’m a champ and I’m back.”
A representative for the host told Fox News that she was “dehydrated” and was later examined by medical staff.
“She is ok and will continue as shows as planned. She will address this on-air tomorrow,” her spokesperson told the network. “She has never missed a day of work and is looking forward on November 13th to her 1500th show.”
Another spokesperson elaborated to People magazine.
“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,” the rep told the magazine.
According to People, she had complained that she’s not a fan of Halloween.
“This is so not my holiday, I am doing this under duress,” she explained. “All kinds of freaks and weirdos walking around. There’s nothing worse than adults in costumes.’
