'Glee's' Amber Riley Faints At Red Carpet Event
Glee star Amber Riley collapsed on the red carpet at a Hollywood event in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
The actress was among the stars of the show attending a screening for the TV Academy of Arts and Sciences at the Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre in North Hollywood and was taking part in press interviews outside when she fainted.
She subsequently took to her Twitter.com page to reassure worried fans and explain she started to feel dizzy from all the camera flashes, insisting she plans to see a doctor for a check-up.
Riley writes, "Hey guys, I'm okay... I got a little dizzy from all the photog (sic) flashes! You'd think I's be (sic) used to it by now, still a red carpet amateur I guess. Gonna get checked out but I feel fine. Thank you for all the concern and well wishes."
She adds, "I'd also like to thank the photographers for being (so) professional and not taking photos of me on the ground. I truly, truly appreciate it. Could have been super embarrassing."
The Glee cast were on hand for a panel discussion held in front of Emmy voters. Fortunately, Amber was able to participate in the panel.
