Amber Riley Faints on Red Carpet
Let me hazard a guess, she fainted because she has not been eating properly for fear of falling off the wagon in her weight-loss crusade.
I wrote about Amber Riley a few articles back after she successfully dropped a considerable amount of weight, enough for ‘Glee’s’ costume department to scramble to get her a new set of wardrobe. So, the pressure to keep going and continue losing some more excess pounds must have been enormous that she resorted to cutting back on calories drastically which caused her to collapse on the red carpet.
Officially though, the 26-year-old actress who was attending the TV Academy of Arts and Sciences in North Hollywood for a panel discussion in front of Emmy voters, said she became dizzy from paparazzi flash bulbs.
She has confirmed she is fine and in a series of tweets, she said: “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.
Amber, who plays Mercedes Jones in ‘Glee’, was able to continue with the panel discussion.Get free updates directly to your e-mail from Showbiz Renegade. Just enter your e-mail below and confirm your subscription by clicking the link that will be sent to your e-mail.
