Montel Williams

Talk show host Montel Williams was rushed to the hospital Wednesday  suffering a medical emergency during a workout in New York City.

A representative for Williams, Jonathan Franks, released this statement via Twitter.

“Anyone who knows Montel knows that he is an exercise enthusiast.  Yesterday, he overdid it and has been admitted to the hospital out of an abundance of caution. He is doing well and anticipates being discharged soon.”

“In the coming days, as he always has, Montel will tell his story himself. Until then, we respectfully ask that his family’s privacy be respected. The Williams family will forever be grateful for the quick response from NYFD and the excellent care he has received.”
