Wendy Williams faints during her live talk show

MIAMI (WSVN) - Talk show host Wendy Williams fainted on live TV, Tuesday, after overheating in her Halloween costume.

During the Wendy Williams Show, Williams wore a Statue of Liberty costume when she suddenly struggled to speak and collapsed on stage.

Williams was introducing a seasonal segment, “How You Booin’,” before falling. Producers rushed to her side before cutting to a lengthy commercial break.

After coming back on-air, she explained, “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.”

The show ended shortly after that, and she joked around by saying, “Was I passed out for that long?”

She also tweeted saying she’s feeling much better and thanked everyone for the well wishes.
