Wendy Williams was in the middle of a live broadcast Tuesday when the talk show host stumbled over her words and suddenly fell to the ground.
After a lengthy commercial break, Williams, who was dressed in a Lady Liberty costume, said she was feeling better. She said she had overheated in her costume.
Many viewers said she appeared to have suffered a stroke.
“Was I passed out for that long?” Williams asked the audience, acknowledging the little time remaining in the broadcast after her return to the show. “That was not a stunt. I overheated in my costume, and I did pass out. But you know what? I’m a champ and I’m back.”
Williams was wearing a green sequined jumpsuit with a green wig and a green crown.
