JOHANNESBURG - During Tuesday&39;s episode of The Wendy Williams Show, the 53-year-old talk show host fainted in her Halloween costume, later coming back and telling the audience she "overheated."

She took some time out from Wednesday&39;s episode to set the record straight.

"A lot of people thought it was a joke, me fainting on my set. No, that was not a joke," she explained.

"No, I don’t want to fall. I’m a tall woman and it’s a long way down. I’m also a woman of a particular age and not trying to break anything. I also don’t do jokes and stunts, I don’t need that," Williams added. 

Twitter was meanwhile unforgiving as users took to the Twitter streets to poke fun at her fainting.

The WendyWilliamsChallange has been trending since Tuesday.
