Amber Riley (Mercedes) might be feeling pretty good now, but just hours ago — on the evening of May 1 — the Glee star had quite the scare on the red carpet!

Amber and her Glee stars were in the middle of a TV Academy  event for the show, when the actress suffered a frightening mishap. E! Online reports that Amber “fainted and collapsed on the red carpet in the midst of doing interviews with multiple media outlets.”

E! was told that Amber simply felt “dizzy" after a long day at work filming Glee’s final episode of Season 3, and that she quickly recovered and is now feeling “fine.” Sure enough, she was back and fully participating in the evening’s Glee panel not long afterwards.

Just to make sure fans weren’t worried, at 9:10pm, Amber tweeted, “Hey guys, I'm okay :) I got a little dizzy from all the photog flashes! 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.”

Thank goodness everything turned out alright. We hope Amber will be back to feeling good as new in no time!
