Wendy Williams: Her Tough Road to Fame and Happiness

Watch				Wendy Williams Faints on Live TV

This morning Wendy Williams was her own hot topic on her talk show after collapsing on live air yesterday. Williams was celebrating Halloween on her series when she fainted.

Williams stressed that no would-be contenders should be after her chair, insisting "I'm here for a long time". I'm also a woman of a particular age and I'm not trying to break anything.

"I want to thank you all for your tweets and your flowers and my colleagues in this game on TV, I got all of your well wishes", the talk show star said. "I don't need that".

The popular host, dressed as the Statue of Liberty, was speaking on stage when she suddenly began to wobble and stagger backwards before dropping to the floor. She was able to finish the show in true Wendy spirit. "It was scary, all I could think of was don't pull the podium on top of you", a tearful Williams said, describing the moments right before the fall. She was determined to make this unfortunate instant of moving out of camera frame "as cute as I can make it". But for 10 years, she battles a cocaine addiction ("Drugs were a demon I had to overcome", she said), and later struggled to start a family, suffering a few miscarriages before conceiving son Kevin Hunter Jr, now 17. She said her blood pressure and heart rate checked out fine and she did not suffer any injuries from her fall. Only 12 more minutes of the show.

Dhumal was picked above Union Minister J P Nadda who had apparently nursed the dream of becoming the chief minister of the state. Shah made the announcement at a public meeting, putting to rest speculation over the party's choice for the top post.

Beginning to get choked up, she added, "It was really scary". The broadcast quickly cut to commercial and when it returned, Williams explained that she "overheated" due to the costume and fainted. So I'm going down with the crown, and I'm not pulling this Plexiglas podium to break my bones. I have no headache, no lump on my head. News, "I'm a 53-year-old middle-aged woman going through what middle-aged women go through, if you know what I mean".

"So we come back from the break, I heard nothing that she said", she said.

She later took to Instagram to explain the situation, revealing she was dehydrated and needed "some water and electrolytes".
