Maine tweeted later on, explaining that she was fine and that the cause for her fainting was fatigue. "As I posted earlier, I'm feeling under the weather since this morning. We're too busy preparing for the segment that I forgot to take my meds. That's probably the reason why I passed out during our cue. None of it was scripted. I was immediately rushed to the hospital... But nothing to worry [about], they said it's all because of over fatigue," she wrote.
