After fans and media outlets expressed their concerns over social media, Williams and her team took to the show's social media feeds and explained that she would discuss the incident on the Nov. 1 show.
"A lot of people thought that was a joke, me fainting on my set. That was not a joke. I don't want to fall. I'm a tall woman and it's a long way down," said Williams on the Nov. 1 episode.
Williams graphically revealed the moments that led her the fall seen around the world.
"I was about to go to the teleprompter and that is where you saw the eyes. It was really scary, all I kept thinking about in the middle of the scare was don't pull the podium over on you. That would make for worse," said Williams.
