Television talk show host Wendy Williams fainted during a live broadcast of her show in New York City on Tuesday morning. The New York City Fire Department was called to the Chelsea Television Studios at 10:51 a.m. after the 53-year-old, dressed as the Statue of Liberty, began to slur her words. "Let's get started. Our first guest..." Williams started to say before she backed up and fainted. A crew member was seen running onstage to help her. She said she overheated in her costume pic.twitter.com/1QdCZhe5pE — Baby Bye (@1BabyBye) October 31, 2017 "That was not a stunt. I overheated in my costume. I did pass out. But you know what, I'm a champ and I'm back," Williams said. A more detailed statement from Ronn Torossian, spokesperson for Wendy Williams, was issued via email: "Ms. Williams fainted on-air this morning. She is dehydrated and is on her way home for a good day and nite of sleep. She has been examined by medical professionals and is well. She is ok and will continue as shows as planned. 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." The FDNY said they remained at the scene but no one has been taken to the hospital.

Cable Networks In Bidding War Over Who Will Air Cardi B And Offset’s Wedding!

TV weddings have guaranteed high ratings for networks everywhere. From Kim and Khloe Kardashian’s elaborate wedding specials to their now exes to the most recently talked about all-white knot-tying ceremony of Keyshia Ka’oir to Gucci Mane — Viewers tuned in making massive numbers. Now that the new hip-hop royalty couple, Cardi B and Offset, have announced their plans to marry — BET and VH1 are in competition to make a deal with them. Cardi B started out as a social media star who went from making popular videos on Instagram to completing two seasons of “Love and Hip Hop: New York.” After leaving the show, she went on to sign a record deal and top charts with “Bodak Yellow.” Offset, on the other hand, doesn’t have a TV background at all. The member of number one rap group Migos is currently busy with preparing for the release of their new album, that features Cardi B, titled “Culture 2.” When the “Bad and Boujee” musician proposed in front of thousands at Powerhouse, stans of the couple went crazy. In true internet culture, a Twitter user thought up a name for a wedding special to be titled “Never Let Migo.” Meanwhile #BET and #VH1 are bout to have a bidding war over who gets to produce #CardiB and #Offsets wedding ? Cardi is having the BEST year ever, all thanks to Je-ZUS as she says it ?? #TeaTENDERS via @bardiset.page A post shared by TeaTENDERS_LIV (@teatenders_liv) on Oct 29, 2017 at 12:20am PDT When The Shade Room posted a screenshot of the idea the BET Instagram account commented: “@iamcardib @offsetyrn – #wegotyou when you ready!” “Love and Hip Hop” mastermind, Mona Scott Young, fired back with her own proposal stating: “Love ya @BET but $wegotthis. #anothercheckfrommonascott @vh1 #4evah!” It looks like the two networks are going head-to-head to see who can air the next most anticipated celebrity wedding! Naturally, you would expect the couple to choose VH1 since that’s where Cardi got her big break; however, she left the series because of how the producers were portraying her meaning that there could possibly be bad blood between Cardi and the channel. On the other hand, since this special would be surrounding the couple, it would mean that the rap songstress would be able to play executive producer and have things the way that she wants it so VH1 still has a fighting chance to be chosen. No one even knows if Cardi and Offset even want to air their vows, but if they chose to it would be a brilliant financial move. They could choose for it to be a one-time thing or follow in the footsteps of Keyshia and Gucci and make their own spin-off series.

On-duty NYPD officers 'handcuffed 18-year-old girl, took her to deserted spot and raped her...

An 18-year-old girl says two NYPD officers raped her after arresting her, according to reports... Two detectives and their supervisor have been stripped of their badges and guns while the NYPD Internal Affairs’ Bureau’s investigation is ongoing, according to the New York Daily News. The young woman said in a statement: “I’m completely brutalized by the rape. Now every time I see any police, I’m in a panic.” She says she was driving in the Coney Island area of New York with two friends, when they were pulled over by police on suspicion of possessing illegal substances. According to her attorney, Michael David, she was handcuffed and driven by the police officers to a secluded spot where they forced her to perform sex acts on them. The young woman says she sought treatment in a New York hospital after the incident, which took place in September. The officers in question did not deny the sexual acts occurred, but both claimed they were consensual, according to the New York Daily News. “We’re aware of the allegations, and Internal Affairs is conducting an investigation into certain members of Brooklyn South narcotics,” a spokesperson for the New York Police Department said.

WATCH VIDEO: RZA admits Russell Crowe spat at Azealia Banks.....

A huge shift from his original statement about the 2016 confrontation...... Last year, Azealia Banks accused Russell Crowe of assaulting her. The singer said that Crowe spat on her, called her the n-word, choked her and threw her out of his hotel suite. RZA, who had accompanied Banks to the party, claimed she was lying, releasing a statement that denied her claims and called her an “obnoxious erratic individual”. A recent interview with the Wu-Tang producer on the Breakfast Club sees RZA tell a different story now though. “He spit at her. I saw that,” RZA admitted when probed about the incident. “Did you check him at that point? That’s a white dude spitting on a black woman,” host Charlamagne tha God asked. RZA then attempted to explain the spit wad wasn’t big, and landed near Banks rather than on her. He added that Crowe apologised to him – no word on an apology to Banks though. At the time, the actor claimed he removed the “212” actor from his party after she threatened to cut other guests’ throats. The case was dropped by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office in December. “UNTIL HE IS READY TO APOLOGIZE (TO ME) PUBLICLY, HE CAN GO BACK TO SUCKING RUSSELL CROWE’S DICK FOR INVITES TO HOLLYWOOD PARTIES,” she wrote in response on Instagram. “Nobody understands how badly I wanted to die the moment RZA LIED and told the world I deserved to be spat (at). People laughed at me and said I lied.” RZA is currently on the promo circuit for the latest Wu-Tang album and his film Love Beats Rhymes, starring Banks in her acting debut. What we should take with this, among the host of other experiences shared by women – and of utmost importance here, women of colour – is that we should believe women. Don't gaslight them. Out abusers. Show solidarity with survivors. Watch the full interview with RZA below.

4 Things You're Doing Right Now That Are Killing Your iPhone Battery

Your iPhone sometimes seems like it holds a charge up until the very second you need it most. While it's true that most iPhone users find themselves having to charge their devices each day (well worth it, given how much use we get out of them), there are a few steps you can take to prolong your battery power. Here are 4 things you're doing that are killing your iPhone battery.... You Aren't Updating Your Device: You should update your iPhone every time an upgrade becomes available. Many software updates include energy-saving features and, if you're running on old software, your device isn't as efficient as possible. Make sure your phone is charged when you perform updates and try, as tempting as it may be, not to ignore these update requests.  You're Charging Your Phone With Its Case On: Not all iPhone cases trap excessive amounts of heat while charging, but the reality is that some do — instead of guessing whether you have a safe case, it's recommended that you remove your iPhone case prior to every charge. A telltale sign that your case is trapping too much heat, which can affect your battery life? Your phone will be hot to the touch during charge. If this happens to you, immediately remove the case and keep it off while charging your phone.  You Charge Your Battery To 100 Percent When You Store Your Phone: There may be times when you need to store your iPhone for a few days or more — it's important to remember to never charge your battery to 100 percent, which can cause it to lose some of its capacity. It's also recommended that you not store your phone when the battery is fully discharged, which prompts it to fall into a deeply discharged state. The best thing to do? Charge your phone to about 50 percent before storing it, then power it down and place it in an area that's moisture-free and no hotter than 90 degrees F.  You Aren't Enabling Low Battery Mode: When your iPhone battery reaches 20 percent, a prompt will pop up and ask if you want to enable Low Battery Mode. Doing this saves you an incredible amount of battery power and extends the life of your device. Low Battery Mode automatically reduces your screen's brightness, prevents content from being downloaded in certain apps, and ensures your device continues to work efficiently. You can even take matters into your own hands and turn on Low Battery before your phone's battery power dips too far down: go to Settings — Battery and you can tap on Low Battery Mode ahead of time.

How You Doing??? FIRED: Wendy Williams Cleans House After Suspecting Staff Of Leaking Husband’s Infidelity Story....

Welp! It looks like Wendy Williams  kinda “knows” who leaked evidence to The Daily Mail, involving her husband’s alleged infidelities. All roads lead back to her Wendy Show staff, and according to The Jasmine Brand, Wendy just cleaned house just to be safe.... Wendy Williams (53) is cleaning house, terminating some of her employees that were allegedly responsible for leaking a recent story surrounding her and her husband manager, Kevin Hunter (46). Their source says: The story was 100% made up and Wendy knows the woman. It’s not true at all. Wendy found out who was behind the story and they were actually people from her staff. She fired anyone who was connected to the story because it was not only fake, but it showed how disloyal they were to her. She can’t trust someone who would do that to her. She fired a number of her staff, including some producers. Look, Wendy trusts her husband. She knows that women want him, especially more now than ever. She’s not letting any of this get to her. Do you think Wendy cleaning house in this scandal makes a difference? His name was on the young lady’s mailbox, allegedly. Thoughts?

LEATHERFACE Trailer (2017) Texas Chainsaw Massacre Prequel......

‘Leatherface’: First NSFW Trailer for the ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ Prequel Is Bathed in Blood...... Get ready to revisit the Texas Chainsaw Massacre mythology with Leatherface, the new horror film that returns to the origin of the infamous killer. The film’s first trailer teases just what sort of movie fans of the franchise are in for. I say “teases” because this first look is really just a collection of creepy scenes that should be familiar–a mask made of human skin, bloody violence, Sawyer Family dinners, etc.–though with contemporary changes afforded by modern effects work and an all-new cast. The story is secondary to the gore in this trailer, but here’s the gist of it: Four escaped mental inmates, played by Jessica Madsen, Sam Coleman, Sam Strike, and James Bloor, get the bloody party started by kidnapping a young nurse (Vanessa Grasse). They’re pursued by local law enforcement, played by Finn Jones and Stephen Dorff; the latter plays Hal Hartman, a deranged Texas Ranger on a mission of revenge against the killer who will become known as Leatherface. And what would a Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie be without the Sawyer Family? Keep an eye out for Lili Taylor, whoo stars as the cannibalistic matriarch, Verna. Leatherface, directed by Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, is rated R “for strong bloody violence, disturbing images, language and some sexuality/nudity.” Leatherface will enjoy an exclusive DirecTV release on September 21th, with a limited theatrical run and full VOD release through Lionsgate on October 20th.
