Wilson Cruz: My So-Called Near-Death

Former "My So-Called Life" star Wilson Cruz ('memba him?) is GLAAD to be alive!

While in South Florida this weekend to receive a GLAAD Award, sources tell TMZ the 34-year-old unknowingly ate chicken stuffed with lobster -- with compliments to the chef, but Wilson is severely allergic to shellfish! TMZ spies tell us that after a few bites it was obvious something was wrong with Cruz. We're told staff at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel were quickly dispatched to local area shops for Benadryl and another Anna Nicole Smith-like emergency was averted.

A rep for Wilson tells TMZ "Wilson is doing fine and remained for the entire ceremony."
