One of the stars of Fox’s "Glee" passed out on the red carpet at a TV Academy event in Hollywood last night, reports E! News.
Singer-actress Amber Riley, who plays Mercedes on the show, is fine now, and explained that after a full day of work and then walking into the event and being assaulted by the cameras, she was overcome.
She tweeted about the incident, saying, "Hey guys, I’m okay 🙂 I got a little dizzy from all the photog flashes! You’d think I’d 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."
At the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in North Hollywood, "Glee" cast members participated in a panel discussion for Emmy voters about the show. Riley recovered from the red carpet incident and took part in the discussion.
