The glitz and glamour of a red carpet appearance can be a bit fascinating for some Hollywood stars, however for “Glee” actress, Amber Riley the experience recently led to a hazing moment.

Last night 26-year-old Riley collapsed while conducting interviews during a panel discussion during a special TV Academy event honoring the hit musical show.

Immediately following the scary moment Riley took to her Twitter account to inform fans of how photographers contributed to the mishap.

“Hey guys, I'm okay. I got a little dizzy from all the photog flashes,” she wrote. “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.”

I'd also like to thank the photographers for being do (sic) professional and not taking photos of me on the ground. I truly, truly appreciate it. Could have been super embarrassing.”

In spite of the flashing moment, Riley was still able to participate with "Glee" cast mates and producers at the North Hollywood event.
