Is everything okay, girl? Wendy Williams gave her fans a scare — and not the good-natured, Halloween-spirited kind — when she fainted on a live broadcast of her show, The Wendy Williams Show earlier today, Oct. 31. The 53-year-old was dressed as Lady Liberty — complete with green hair — when she “overheated” and passed out. Watch the chilling moment in the video below.

After the scare, the show immediately went to a commercial break, and thankfully, Wendy was able to return to broadcast after the minor medical mishap. While some viewers were skeptical about the incident — believing it to be a Halloween prank — the always outspoken talk show host reassured fans that this was not the case.

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

You can say that again, Wendy! On social media, fans were thrilled to see Wendy back on her feet — both figuratively and literally — and she released a statement, giving fans an update on her health.

“Everybody relax. I’m doing fine, just need some water and electrolytes," she wrote in a statement posted to Twitter. "On another note, I slayed and laid Halloween, LOL! Shout out to my magnificent Glam Squad and [Cesar] Galindo the costume designer. More on this tomorrow.’
