Serene Branson Has Suspected Stroke Live On Air?

SERENE BRANSON may have suffered a stroke during a live broadcast at the Grammy Awards yesterday (13th February 2011).
SERENE BRANSON, the Los Angeles reporter, may have suffered a stroke during a live broadcast outside the Staples Centre last night, reports the New York Daily News.Branson was introducing the highlights and backstage coverage from the awards show when she began to slur her words and her speech became incomprehensible. After struggling for almost ten seconds, the video cut away to some pre-recorded Grammy coverage. Cbs 2 News initially remained quiet on what had happened to Branson but eventually released a statement that read, "Serene Branson was examined by paramedics on scene immediately after her broadcast. Her vital signs were normal. She was not hospitalized. As a precautionary measure, a colleague gave her a ride home and she says that she is feeling fine this morning". Branson is an Emmy Award nominated journalist who previously worked for KCAL 9 in Sacremento.
Kim Baldonado, an Nbc reporter in Los Angeles wrote on her Twitter page, "Sending my best to Serene Branson that she's ok. It doesn't sound like it's anything to laugh about".

My theory is that she did too much blow while partying with the stars during the pre-show. This is a clear case of coke jaw. Read more about her sniffly little episode at IMeanWhat bit.ly/f4bb3t

Don't be a dick, imeanwhat.It looks like it was something serious, as she started off fine. I used to see her all the time when she was in Sacramento. I hope she's okay.
