"Let me stop the rumor mill right now. I'm not pregnant! Yes, I'm black but I don't have diabetes, I don't starve myself to fit clothes," she explained on Twitter squashing the rumors. "I eat right and exercise! I love myself waaaay more than I like my career. I would never put myself in harm's way to mirror any 'image.'"

Riley says she got a little dizzy from all of the flashes on the red carpet, claiming she still must be a "red carpet amateur." After she collapsed, she was able to attend the panel presentation with other members of the show's cast and producers. 

The actress added that she was entertained by all of the gossip around why she fainted. "I did get a great laugh this morning reading all the BS though lol," tweeted Riley.

While the Riley did faint, there were no pictures of the incident, something for which she was grateful. 

"I'd also like to thank the photographers for being so professional and not taking photos of me on the ground. I truly truly appreciate it. Could have been super embarrassing," she tweeted.
