Internet buzz that Carnie Wilson fainted while taping an episode of The Newlywed Game is false, a network spokesperson tells PEOPLE.

Wilson "did briefly become lightheaded while taping The Newlywed Game on Thursday, March 18," says the spokesperson. "Carnie took a 10-minute break, then finished taping the show. Paramedics were not called to the set that day, but GSN did provide a medic on-set the following Monday as a purely precautionary measure.

Clearing up rumors about the 41-year-old host of GSN's Newlywed Game, the spokesperson adds: Wilson "finished shooting" the show's third season Wednesday "with no further lightheadedness."

"I'm feeling great," Wilson said. "I appreciate everyone's concern and thoughtfulness, but I'm busy and happy and doing really well."

Wilson, who has been struggling with weight loss after undergoing bypass surgery in 1999, told PEOPLE in February she "needs help" with her weight battle. "I don't want to be drastic. I want to be realistic," she said.
