"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.

Is she the one who said that she had a seizure? Did a medical doctor say she had a seizure?

It's likely she simply said that she had a seizure because it sounds much more dramatic than "I was hot and I had a diva moment..."

She has a seizure, it has never happened before and she hasn't ran to her physician yet? She's crazy.

That's happen to me before, I passed out out of nowhere and I got right back up feeling fine. I didn't brother to get it checked out and I'm still fine to this day. So it probably was just stress.

what a moron. 1-of course she wouldnt know she had one, she was unconscious when it happened, and when you come to after a seizure, you are completely disoriented. 2-as someone who had a similar experience (i had a random seizure in public and have no history of them) i was taken to the hospital and was kept there for 3 days! turns out, it was a freak occurrence, but usually, that is not the case. i cannot BELIEVE she didnt go to the hospital or that no one around her insisted she go. seizures are very serious and should not be taken lightly. lastly, it is the law that after a seizure, she is not allowed to drive for a certain amount of time, given her states law.

When you have a seizure, you pass out. You are unconscious during the seizure and then fall into a deep sleep, although sometimes for as little as 5 minutes. When you wake up though, you have a terrible headache, which is why I have to wonder if she really had one. Most people would want to go to the hospital after that. I know... I had one 7 years ago caused by stress, not eating, not sleeping, etc. So it is POSSIBLE that she had one, but I really don't know why she would not want to go to the hospital and get checked out!

In reply to daftshadow, women can't name themselves. In case you didn't know, in most cases, parents name their children. Babies don't come from the womb speaking their name. gimme a break, stop being ignorant!!

The saddest part of this story is that she was one of the biggest names at the charity event.
