Royce Reed

"BASKETBALL WIVES" STAR

Suffers Seizure at Charity Event

8/7/2011 9:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Royce Reed Seizure
Royce Reed
from "Basketball Wives" suffered a seizure during a charity softball game yesterday, but was not transported to a hospital ... sources close to her tell TMZ.

We're told Reed took part in the Duffy's Hope Celebrity Softball Game in Wilmington, DE where she played in the game and signed autographs for fans. According to our sources, Reed pulled a hamstring muscle at one point and when she went to go sit down ... she passed out.

When she came to, our sources say Reed said she had no idea she suffered a seizure and told people it was the first time she had such an experience. Paramedics were called, but Reed said she was feeling fine and did not need to be transported to a hospital.

Reed told friends she felt a combination of exhaustion, stress, the heat and her diet caused the episode.

We're told Reed is feeling fine today, but plans to visit a doctor when she returns home to Florida.

A rep for Reed could not be reached for comment.

Ugh! Never skip getting checked out if you pass out and there is no history of that happening. I passed out once and turns out I effing DIED! A week later I got a defibrillator implanted which saved my life the next time it happened to me. I was only 27.

Another lame story about a non entity nobody. Focus on celebrties. If you want to do stories about nobody's, do a story about my neighbor, that guy has the fattest a$$ on the planet. It's record big.

Praying for her. No matter what she does on tv, she's still human.

It's not really a brilliant idea to pass out for an unknown reason and hop on a flight to Florida in an airplane with a pressurised cabin without seeing a doctor first. Just sayin'...

What an idiot. Sounds bogus. How does passing out equal a seizure? Anyway who cares. More Payless shoes for the rest of us.

When did "passing out" become defined as a "seizure"?

Did she pass out or did she have a seizure? Very different things. Having a seizure is not minor thing you just brush off as exhaustion or the heat.

What no Twitter before she hit the ground?? She broke Attention Whore 101. It is mandatory to Tweet every aspect of your life, this includes tweeting before calling 911.

It is possible that she had a seizure. A co-worker of mine suddenly fell to the ground one day and was unresponsive. Paramedics were called. They said she had a seizure. I didn't see any convulsions. Her eyes were closed, and she just moaned when people were trying to wake her up.
