TV host Wendy Williams shocked fans by fainting during her show's Halloween special on last Tuesday.
Williams was introducing a segment while wearing a Statue of Liberty Halloween costume when her speech suddenly became slurred. She began shaking and seconds later collapsed on the stage. Stagehands rushed in to help her while the crowd screamed.
Williams, 53, fainted while speaking on stage while dressed in a Statue of Liberty costume.
Producers on "The Wendy Williams Show" cut to black, a lengthy commercial break and images of the audience clapping.
Several minutes later, Williams returned to screens and told the audience the moment "was not a stunt" and she passed out because she was overheated in her costume.
Williams' publicist Alexandra Sinclair tells The Associated Press the host is "feeling much better" and was able to finish the show OK. Sinclair says Williams will "address the incident on tomorrow's show."
