Last year’s stunning incident left some audience members thinking that it may have been part of a holiday skit.
Williams, who was dressed as the Statue of Liberty, had just started doing her How You Doin’ segment, where she attempted to bring out a Halloween costume winner.
‘We do it every year. It’s always a lot of fun,’ she said as she began to slur her words.
She then appeared to look shaky and scared.

‘Lets get started. Our first guest…’ the host said and then fell down onto the floor. Producers and crew members could bee seen rushing onto the stage when the broadcast went to black.
Williams did return after a long commercial break to address her audience and viewers.
‘That was not a stunt,’ she said. ‘I overheated in my costume and I did pass out. But do you know what? I’m a champ and I’m back!’
Afterwards, Williams’ publicist confirmed in a statement that she was ‘dehydrated and is on her way home for a good day and night of sleep.’

The following day the now 54-year old addressed her fall.
‘That was no joke… 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 I’m not trying to break anything,’ she revealed.
‘Also, I don’t do stunts and jokes for you like that. I don’t need that.’
She went on to say that she felt ‘hot and a little dizzy’ before she started filming that day.
Several months later, Williams took three weeks off from her show, due to complications of Graves disease.
