Glee Star Amber Riley Collapses During Red Carpet Interviews
Glee star Amber Riley collapsed on the red-carpet whilst doing interviews with various media outlets on Tuesday evening (May 1, 2012). The American actress - who plays Mercedes in the comedy drama - collapsed while attending a Television Academy of Arts and Sciences event in North Hollywood, reports E! Online.
Thankfully, she is now feeling fine and says that she became "dizzy" from the flashbulbs. Soon after the scary incident, she took to Twitter to assure fans she was ok, saying, "Hey guys, I'm okay :) I got a little dizzy from all the photog flashes! You'd think I's be 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 later thanked photographers for their professional manner, saying, "I'd also like to thank the photographers for being do professional and not taking photos of me on the ground. I truly truly appreciate it. Could have been super embarrassing". Images of Riley before the incident appear to show the actress looking nervous and unsteady.
On hand to make sure Amber was ok were real-life couple Lea Michele and Cory Monteith, as well as Jayma Mays and Naya Rivera. Glee was renewed for a fourth season last month.
