By

Wendy Williams had fans worried on Tuesday, when she fainted in her Statue of Liberty costume on live television during a taping of The Wendy Williams Show.

The 53-year-old talk show host was speaking to her audience on stage, when she suddenly paused and began to wobble, before eventually falling to the floor. Cameramen immediately came to assist her, as the screen faded to black.

Thankfully, Williams returned and appeared to be fine, explaining that she overheated in her costume.
