Morning show host Wendy Williams passed out during the costume contest portion of her annual Halloween special Tuesday

As TMZ reports, Williams was roughly 48 minutes into her live show when she became uneasy on her feet and began stuttering. She then fell to the floor.

Producers quickly cut to black as those in the studio rushed to her aid.

Williams appeared to be OK following an impromptu commercial break and explained that her “Lady Liberty” costume had caused her to overheat:

“That was not a stunt. I overheated in my costume and did pass out. But you know what, I’m a champ and I’m back.”

According to TMZ, the fire department responded to the incident as Williams continued to host the rest of the show.

A more-clear picture of what caused Williams to collapse was detailed in a statement released by her representatives:

Here’s to hoping Williams feels better soon.
