Television host Wendy Williams created a scare on Tuesday after she fainted during a special Halloween episode of her popular talk show.
Williams, 53, was dressed as the Statue of Liberty and talking to the camera about a Halloween costume contest toward the end of the show when she began to shake, stumbled over her words and eventually fell to the ground. Staffers were seen running to help her.

The program immediately cut to a commercial break and when it returned, Williams said, “That was not a stunt. I overheated in my costume. I passed out.” She added, “I’m a champ and I’m back.” She then continued on with the show.
Still, her fans expressed concern on social media, with some even urging her to go the hospital.
“Let’s get started,” she said, before appearing to say “our first caress” instead of “guest.” Williams then stopped speaking and started breathing differently before teetering and losing her balance.
After the commercial break, Williams returned, saying she had overheated.
“That was not a stunt,” she said. “I overheated in my costume, I did pass out. But, you know what? I’m a champ and I’m back.” The audience cheered her return.
Williams, an Asbury Park native who grew up in Ocean Township, has also resided in Montclair and Livingston.
While some who saw the clip speculated Williams had had a stroke, after the show, Williams’ Twitter account shared a statement, saying “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. Thank you for your well wishes.”
