During Tuesday morning’s live broadcast, Wendy Williams fainted in the middle of a segment on The Wendy Williams Show.

The talk show host, dressed as the Statue of Liberty, began to slur her words while reading the teleprompter to announce this year’s costume contest winner. Her eyes widened as she staggered back while holding her head, then collapsed. Her producers rushed over and immediately cut to a commercial break.

Williams was back on the air a few minutes later to explain what happened.

“That was not a stunt,” she said. “I’m overheated in my costume and I did pass out. But you know what, I’m a champ, and I’m back!”

Ron Torossian, spokesman of The Wendy Williams Show, confirmed that the host was overheated from the costume, as well as from the makeup and studio lights.

In addition, Mr. Torossian stated that Williams was dehydrated and received medical attention.

“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.”

Praying for a speedy recovery to you Wendy Williams.
