“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.
