Yesterday, Amber Riley gave “Glee” fans something to remember the day for. Amber Riley collapsed on the red carpet right before a “Glee” event, causing a little bit of panic among organizers and fans. Apparently, there are no underlying factors that caused Amber Riley to collapse on the red carpet during interviews, apart from exhaustion that is.
Being on the cast of “Glee” isn’t exactly easy to handle. If your favorite stars seem to have it together, that doesn’t mean they’re not tormented with exhaustion. For some people the pressure and strain can be too much and every now and then they can really take their toll. Apparently Amber Riley had such an episode yesterday, when she fainted and collapsed on the red carpet just before an event the cast of “Glee” was set to make an appearance.
It was obviously a scary event to witness, but Amber Riley kept it together better than most others. Soon after she collapsed on the red carpet ahead of a TV Academy of Arts and Sciences event in North Hollywood, Amber Riley said: “Still a red carpet amateur I guess. Gonna get checked out but I feel fine”. Then she thanked photographers for not taking pictures of her while lying on the ground. “I truly truly appreciate it”, said Amber Riley, “could have been super embarrassing”.
Obviously, Amber Riley’s collapse had spurred tons of comments and theories regarding her health. From being pregnant to diabetic and on a diet, media sources and fans discussed them all. But the underlying causes were exhaustion and the unease caused by all the photographers’ flashes.
To the rumors that she might have a handful with shooting for “Glee”, Amber Riley reacted saying there’s no way she’s going to put her career ahead of her health. “I love myself waaay more than I like my career. I would never ever put myself in harm’s way to mirror any ‘image’. Come on ppl. Get a life. I did get a great laugh this morning reading all the BS though” reacted Amber Riley this morning.
On Twitter, Amber Riley posted the following message: “Lol. Let me stop the rumor mill right not. I’m not pregnant! Yes I’m black but I don’t have diabetes, I don’t starve myself to fit clothes; I buy clothes to fit ME not vice versa, I DO NOT DIET”.
