Television talk show host Wendy Williams fainted during a live broadcast of her show in New York City on Tuesday morning.
The New York City Fire Department was called to the Chelsea Television Studios at 10:51 a.m. after the 53-year-old, dressed as the Statue of Liberty, began to slur her words.
"Let's get started. Our first guest..." Williams started to say before she backed up and fainted. A crew member was seen running onstage to help her.

"That was not a stunt. I overheated in my costume. I did pass out. But you know what, I'm a champ and I'm back," Williams said.
A more detailed statement from Ronn Torossian, spokesperson for Wendy Williams, was issued via email:
"Ms. Williams fainted on-air this morning. She is dehydrated and is on her way home for a good day and nite of sleep. She has been examined by medical professionals and is well. She is ok and will continue as shows as planned. She will address this on-air tomorrow. She has never missed a day of work and is looking forward on November 13th to her 1500th show."
The FDNY said they remained at the scene but no one has been taken to the hospital.
Sylvester Stallone announced on Instagram that he will be directing “Creed 2.” “Looking forward to directing and Producing The incredibly talented Michael B Jordan in CREED 2 next year … One more Round!,” wrote Stallone.....
Stallone has previously said he had completed writing the first draft of the script for “Creed 2” and hinted he is bringing back Dolph Lundgren’s Ivan Drago character (and presumedly his offspring) from “Rocky 4.” Last month Stallone also announced production would begin in 2018, although distributor MGM told Variety the project was still in development.
In addition to writing and starring in the original “Rocky,” Stallone had directed four of the previous sequels, including “Rocky Balboa” — made 30 years after the original, when Stallone was 60 years old — which was assumed to bring closure to the successful franchise.

Close to a decade later, writer/director Ryan Coogler — fresh of the success of his Sundance breakout “Fruitvale Station” — convinced Stallone to come back as Rocky. Ryan Coogler’s “Creed” was one of the smartest, most original franchise reboots to come out of Hollywood. Focusing on the estranged son (Jordan) of the late Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) — Rocky’s greatest opponent turned best friend — Coogler reinvented the mentor-boxer relationship at the heart of the “Rocky” films, while telling an African American boxing story in a franchise that was rooted in the lore of “The Great White Hope.”
In addition to being a box office success, “Creed” also gave Stallone an incredible acting opportunity, as he went into the 2015 Academy Awards the favorite to win the Best Support Actor award, which went to Mark Rylance (“Bridge of Spies”).
For his part, Coogler has become one of the busiest and most sought after directors in Hollywood since the success of “Creed.” While the buzz on his summer Marvel film “Black Panther” is off the charts, he is also preparing “Wrong Answer,” which will star Jordan and is based on script written by nonfiction author Ta-Nehisi Coates.

There are many classic jewelry looks having a moment in the spotlight right now—hoop earrings and circle pendants, to name a couple.
While it's true these forever pieces will never go out of style, there seems to be a collective gravitation toward these items this season. One such fan of the latter look is none other than Halle Berry.
While heading to a TV appearance in NYC, the iconic actress sported a breezy, plunging minidress accessorized with strappy gold heels and—one very key detail, in our opinion—a collection of long, dangling pendants. This ensemble is just one of many ways to incorporate the necklace style—it looks equally alluring with a T-shirt and jeans and other casual wares. Of course if it's Halle-approved, that's reason enough to give it a go.
