Wendy Williams Passes Out During Live Broadcast Of Her Talk Show — Watch
Wendy Williams gave audience members and television viewers a real scare when she fainted on stage during a segment on "The Wendy Williams Show."

The talk show host was wearing a Lady Liberty costume and a blue wig for the special Halloween show. 

Williams was doing a segment and apparently about to introduce a guest when she began acting bizarre. She started saying, "Let's get started. Our first guest ..." 

In the middle of the segment, Williams appeared wide-eyed and stumbled over her words before completely stopping speaking. She stumbled backwards and began visibly shaking before immediately passing out and falling to the ground. 

The episode was pretty scary and serious looking, but the talk show host later returned and explained the issue.

The show returned from commercial and Wendy explained to the audience, "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."

Her spokesperson, Ronn Torossian issued a statement, saying, "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 okay 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 Nov. 13 to her 1500th show."

Fans weighed in on the fainting episode on social media, with most appearing to believe the talk show host actually suffered a mini-stroke.

Follower, Lori Green, wrote, "Definitely think it was more than heat! Her face did not look well, and dazed afterwards plus slurred speech? Sounds like a mini stroke. Pay attention to those. Even though you may be able to brush it off, and carry on, it could be a warning about a bigger one on the horizon. Get checked out!! What in the falling lady liberty is going on?"

Vanessa Hernandez wrote, "If anyone noticed on the segment where she asks the audience questions you can tell she wasn’t feeling well. Her eyes look very open even after she fainted. Hope she gets checked out, that was extremely scary to watch. To me it seemed like a mini stroke. That was absolutely not overheating."

Her rep later wrote on Facebook, "Wendy is feelin gmuch better. She overheated because of her heavy costume, makeup, and lights. She was able to finish the show in true Wendy spirit. Than you for your well wishes."

Wendy also addressed concerned fans in a post.
