Wendy Williams' fans are worried she was more than "overheated" when she passed out on Halloween.

Williams fainted during the live taping of "The Wendy Williams Show" on Tuesday, while dressed as the Statue of Liberty. (There's a metaphor in there somewhere.)

It was a particularly bizarre way of fainting, with the talk show host seeming to slur her words, wobbling backward, and even looking scared before falling over. The audience gasped, and crew members rushed forward before the show cut to commercial.

When the show returned from break, Williams seemed much better, and addressed what happened:

"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."

A rep for the show later told People:

"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. She will address the incident on tomorrow's show."

She already addressed what happened on Twitter:


However, as some fans noted, her symptoms sounded worse than just overheating.
Yes, let's hope she did go to her doctor after the taping instead of just brushing it off as overheating. Maybe she was overheated, but she did say "caress" instead of "guest" and exhibited signs of other medical issues. Take it seriously, Wendy!
