Wendy Williams “Overheats” & Passes Out On Live Television, Twitter Reacts

Wow! Wendy Williams gave her audience and viewers quite the scare during her Halloween show and it was most definitely NOT a trick! The host passed out live on air.

Dressed as the Statue of Liberty, Wendy celebrated Halloween with her “co-hosts” during today’s live broadcast (Oct. 31).

However, mid-way through Wendy introducing her annual costume contest, “How You Booin’?” when she began slurring her words and noticeably began to shake. The host stumbled and fell to the floor as crew rushed to her aid and the director cut to black.

Following the commercial break, a conscious Wendy explained to the audience that she “overheated” due to her costume. “That was not a stunt,” she said trying to be upbeat. “I overheated in my costume and I did pass out. But do you know what? I’m a champ and I’m back!”

Wendy was able to complete the show and is reportedly expected to film shows for the rest of the week.

A rep for the show further explained Wendy overheated due to her bulky costume, heavy make-up and bright studio lights. But if her costume was the cause, why did she return still wearing the full Statue of Liberty costume?

Meanwhile, Ronn Torossian, a spokesperson for Wendy, says the host fainted because of dehydration.

“Ms. Williams fainted on-air this morning. She is dehydrated and is on her way home for a good day and night of sleep. She has been examined by medical professionals and is well. She is OK and will continue as shows as planned,” Torossian said.

“She will address this on-air tomorrow. She has never missed a day of work and is looking forward on November 13th to her 1500th show.”

We wish the talk show host a speedy recovery!

Here are a few Twitter reactions to Wendy Williams fainting on-air:

Kim Kardashian Dressed as Aaliyah for Halloween and Black Twitter Was NOT Here For It

Happy Halloween, courtesy of Kim Kardashian. The reality star kicked off All Hallows’ Eve by channeling her inner Cher. However, it’s her second costume that has outraged Black Twitter, causing them to drag Miss Kardashian-West.

On Saturday night (Oct. 28), Kim decided to dress as the late R&B icon Aaliyah. She used the singer’s 2000 “Try Again” music video for her inspiration.

Black Twitter was NOT happy with Kim’s choice of costume and dragged her for trying to emulate the Princess of R&B. “Aaliyah” even became a top five trending topic.

However, not everyone opposed Kim’s Aaliyah costume, especially since she didn’t use any form of blackface.

On Friday night (Oct. 27), Kim attended Casamigos’ annual Halloween bash as Cher at the 1973 Academy Awards. She was accompanied by her best friend Jonathan Cheban dressed as Sonny Bono.

This was definitely a better choice.

Offset Proposes to Cardi B On Stage During “Powerhouse” Concert, Twitter Reacts to the Happy News

Cardi B is most definitely having the best year of her life. Not only is she currently the hottest rapper in the game right now, but boyfriend Offset just sprinkled 8 carats worth of diamonds on her already decadent cake.

Cardi B and Offset are officially engaged!

Offset proposed to Cardi Friday night (Oct. 27) at the Power 99 Powerhouse concert in Philadelphia at the Wells Fargo Center in front of thousands of screaming fans. The “Bodak Yellow” emcee could barely contain her excitement as Offset got on one knee. And she definitely was surprised!

Offset went all out for his queen too (as he should)! The engagement ring is a large 8-karat pear-shaped diamond. “She said yes,” he wrote on social media as he showed off the ring.


Cardi also shared her joy on Instagram. She wrote in one post:

“Jesus Christ I’m so emotional, @offsetyrn I loveee you so much .Thank you for seeing the potential in me since you met me .For giving me advice molding me and loving me .Your such a amazing man to me your family ,friends ,kids and you are extremely talented.I can’t wait to spend FOREVAAAA with you.

In another post, she shared a close-up of her ring and hoped it wasn’t all dream. “Thank you God for all these blessings,” she wrote. “Thank you babe @offsetyrn God really sent you to me.”

It was only a week ago that Twitter freaked out when Cardi insinuated she had dumped Offset, and Twitter was freaking out for a much happier reason once news of the couple’s engagement went viral.

Cardi and Offset began dating earlier this year and actually had to shut down engagement rumors just a few months ago. Well, now it’s no longer rumors and speculation; it’s the real deal. We wish the happy couple well.

Nelly Hosts “Opium Saturdays” at Opium Atlanta, Spotted Smoking Some of That Good Loud (EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS & VIDEO FOOTAGE)

Nelly was spotted at Opium nightclub in Atlanta, Georgia last weekend (Sat, Oct. 21) hosting their weekly “Opium Saturdays” series.

This is one of the rapper’s first public appearances (not including concert performances) since his arrest earlier this month after a woman accused him of raping her on his tour bus.

Nelly’s first gig since getting arrested was a couple of weeks ago in South Florida, where T.I. pledged his allegiance to his longtime friend and gave him some brotherly advice. “Put that bullsh*t behind you, get back to being great, get money,” Tip said. “F**k what a hater got to say.”

Last Saturday in Atlanta at Opium, Nelly hung out in the club’s VIP section, popped some bottles and smoked on some of that good loud aka gas aka “dank” (i.e. really good great weed for the uninitiated).

And how do we know it was good loud/gas, you ask? Because we were right there, and it smelled like “GOOD GAS,” which is par for the course for someone in Nelly’s position, especially with him dealing with those rape allegations.

Speaking of that, the latest with the situation is that his rape accuser is refusing to testify and has dropped her case against him, but Washington police still intend to move forward with their investigation with or without her testimony.

Other celebs spotted partying with Nelly at Opium Atlanta last Saturday included Bow Wow, Jermaine Dupri, Tiny Harris and Karrueche Tran.

Pregnant Toya Wright Wants to Squash Beef With Tamar Braxton Amid Divorce News: “I Wish [Her] the Best”

Toya Wright is offering an olive branch to Tamar Braxton. The pregnant reality star had nothing but kind words to say about her former friend during an appearance on Sister Circle.

Earlier this week, Toya addressed her feud with Tamar on Sister Circle. Though she previously has described Tamar as “the fakest bitch I know,” Toya took the high road and admitted she has nothing but love for the singer.

“I would like to say that I wish Tamar Braxton the best. I have nothing negative to say about her. I think she’s an amazing singer — very talented. I wish her much success.”

Instagram Photo

She went on to address a larger issue at hand and encouraged black women in the entertainment industry to stop the “cattiness and pettiness” on social media in an effort to set a better example for young girls.

“And as far as Black women in the entertainment industry who have those conflicts, I just feel like they we use social media platforms to kind of air out a lot of cattiness and pettiness. And I myself…I’m a victim of it as well. But we have to do better.

“We have to start setting more positive examples for our youth who follow us and look up to us, because the girl fights, the Twitter beefs and Instagram shade throwing—it just needs to stop.”

Toya and Tamar’s friendship turned into a feud when Toya appeared on The Real after Tamar was unexpectedly fired from the show. More damage was done when Tamar threw shade at Toya in an Instagram apology to Tiny Harris. Toya responded by calling her fake, petty, and pathetic.

Fortunately, it seems Toya is ready to bury the hatchet. The reality star—who is expecting a girl—offered her olive branch before it was announced Tamar is divorcing her husband, Vince Herbert. With the two going through life-changing events, maybe they can squash their beef once and for all.

Did “The Real” Drama Cause Tamar Braxton’s Divorce? Sources Say Yes As Co-Hosts Offer Support

Yesterday, we learned Tamar Braxton had decided to divorce her husband and manager Vincent Herbert, after nearly nine years of marriage. Sources are now revealing what may have caused the marriage to break down and The Real may have played a role.

Sources tell TMZ Tamar was depressed for several months after she was unexpectedly fired from The Real in May 2016. The firing and depression allegedly caused “irreparable fracture” to Tamar and Vince’s marriage, which was already rocky to begin with.

Via TMZ:

While they’re no strangers to a roller coaster of a relationship, we’re told losing the gig created bigger issues because it compounded an already teetering relationship. And one of the first steps to get back on track — moving out 3 months ago, even though they acted like a couple just 2 weeks ago.

The couple recently pretended to be a happy couple in NYC while promoting the upcoming season of their reality show Tamar & Vince. But back in LA, Tamar is reportedly living in a luxurious 2-bedroom apartment for $15K a month.

The singer officially filed for divorce in Los Angeles County on October 24 and is expected to “fight tooth and nail” for full custody of their 4-year-old son, Logan.

As for The Real, the co-hosts sent their former colleague well-wishes during a live broadcast on Wednesday (Oct. 25). Loni Love said:

“Tamar, I know that we’ve been through a lot on this show and I understand that but you know what? We truly wish you the best and we hope that you get through this.”

Tamar Braxton Filed for Divorce From Vincent Herbert Just One Month Shy of 9-Year Wedding Anniversary

Tamar Braxton recently stated she was taking a step back from her music career to “save her marriage.” Apparently, there wasn’t much to save because the singer has filed for divorce.

TMZ reports Tamar filed divorce papers on Tuesday (Oct. 24) in L.A. County. She and husband Vincent Herbert have been married for eight years. In fact, the divorce announcement comes just a month before their 9-year anniversary.

The couple began dating in 2003 after being introduced by Tamar’s sister, Toni Braxton. They have one child together, 4-year-old Logan Vincent. However, earlier this year, the two were actively trying to conceive again but struggled with IVF treatments.

Though the split seems sudden since the couple has been trying to put on a united front lately, we should have all seen this coming. Sources tell TMZ Tamar and Vince’s relationship has been a “rollercoaster” since their domestic dispute last year.

In August 2016, the two got into an argument that turned physical while staying at the Ritz Carlton in Atlanta. Vince reportedly bit Tamar and drew blood. 911 was called and the singer needed stitches. However, Vince was not arrested or charged as he had left the scene when police arrived.

Rumors began to swirl that this wasn’t the first time things had gotten physical with each other.

The couple was again tested earlier this year when a woman claimed Vince cheated on Tamar with her the night before he got married. She claims this one-night-stand resulted in a daughter. Tamar shot down the allegation on social media and addressed it on The Wendy Williams Show alongside Vince.

Following the divorce news, TMZ reports Tamar has already moved out of the home. The couple put their $3.7 million Calabasas mansion on the market earlier this month, which should have been a red flag of trouble to come.

Meanwhile, season 5 of their reality show Tamar & Vince will premiere November 9th on WE TV.
