Watch Wendy Williams Faints on Live TV

A day after she gave her viewers a fright after collapsing live on air during her Halloween special, US TV host Wendy Williams has given a tearful recount of what happened.

"As she was talking to me, all I heard was "blah, blah, blah" and all I'm thinking is, 'Wendy, oh my gosh.' The crew brought out the clear plexiglass podium that you saw - we were about to do our Halloween costume contest".

"Maybe that's my fault for pushing myself too hard but I have a very, very hard work ethic", she said as she explained all she wanted to do was come back out and finish her show. What might have passed for a skit on the occasion of Halloween was not one of them and the team of the show is soon coming to the rescue of the host.

ESSENCE Now discusses the shocking moment. "I think the idea of "boss up" is just ideal, especially in our day and age where we are so reliant on the opinions of others".

"I've been a fan of Wendy Williams for years now and to actually meet someone that brings so much joy into my life is incredible", Drozdowski said. "But you know what, I'm a fighter and I'm back ". "I don't want to fall, I'm a tall woman and it's long way down" Williams began. After the commercial break, Wendy returned to close out the show like a "champ" and this morning she did the same when she returned to set to a rush of applause from the studio audience. "I don't need that". She later tweeted she was "doing fine".

After thanking fans, Wendy once again reassured the audience: "For people who thought that I was [stroking out] trying to get this chair next: nope, I'm here for a long time!" She started to cry and said, "It was scary".

Do you think this contributed to her fainting incident? She recalled that from then on she started to feel "hot and a little dizzy. like something is about to happen". "The costume got hot, all of a sudden before passing out I felt like I was in the middle of a campfire". You're 42. You've got a 21 year old son. Everything was fine. I'm a 53-year-old middle-age woman going through what middle-age women go through. Her husband then "collected" her to take her backstage.
