On Monday, “Extra’s” AJ Calloway spoke with Wendy, who assured her fans that she’s doing just fine after collapsing on live TV during her Halloween show. She explained, “Fainting is something that happens to people. Best place to faint probably is on national TV, 'cause all my doctors called — I didn’t have to call them — and kept late hours and worked around my schedule. I did not have any pain when I got up. I was waiting three days… I don’t have a lump on my head, no headache, and I’m fine.”

Williams also rolled her eyes at headlines that she has lost too much weight, saying, “They are so jealous. Excuse me, do I look too skinny? I weigh 145 pounds. I am sleek, lean, and living my life.”

Of her huge show milestone, Wendy commented, “I don't want a celebration party for 1500 episodes, I want to go home and be with my husband and my kid and rock back and forth and be grateful.” She went on to say, “I also won't be going out and buying diamonds, 'cause you know you never know when it's all gonna end.”

As for what has changed the most for her since her first show, Wendy commented, “I’m even more guarded now. I appreciate the little things.”

“People didn’t think we’d be here past the first episode based on my reckless radio careers,” Wendy pointed out. “People in the game looked at me like trash, 'Psst, what's she doing here? She’s on daytime TV and I’m on daytime TV? Something has got to be wrong. My radio peeps said she’ll be back — watch this fail.'”

What's her message for all those haters? She replied, “Pick a finger.”
