A TV reporter who lapsed into gibberish during a live shot outside the Grammys suffered a migraine, her doctors said Thursday.
KCBS-TV reporter Serene Branson was doing a stand-up Sunday outside the Staples Center where the award show was held when her speech became incoherent. The station quickly cut away, and she was examined by paramedics and recovered at home.

Great she is OK and great that I am not going to hell.
Well not at least for laughing so hard at the vid.
I get migraines too.
Praise the Lord that she is okay.
For someone in that business, that has to be just about the worst thing to happen. TV people are usually pretty intense, so I wouldn’t be surprised if Ms. Branson is angry at herself about it. But I hope she understands it wasn’t her fault, and that most viewers understand that things happen sometimes.
I would think some people who think they have migraines might be having very mild seizures.
So.... botox+plastic face+TV lights= stroke-like symptoms??
Hell I thought she made a lot more sense in that video than Keith Olbermann or Chrissie Matthews on a good day.
Glad to hear she is gonna be Ok. She will be interviewed tonight on CBS 2 at 11pm..apparently these migraine headaches run in her family. Its bad enough going through something like that but to have people write nasty things about her on blogs and youtube is just downright disgusting. I never heard of a complex migraine, I get migraines too but never to that extreme
I get migraines on occassion. To those who don’t: Thank your lucky stars. They make a regular headache look like a match compared to a flamethrower.
Any sound, any light, may as well be a baseball bat, except you don’t get to go unconscious.
Supposedly, a migraine and a stroke don’t look that different on an MRI...
PS Then there are cluster headaches. Supposedly even worse. I thank God that I don’t get those. A buddy of mine does. Let’s just say, “shudder.”
I’ll swear. I had nothing to do with it. I think it was a brain fart.
I get occular migranes occaisionally....scared the crap out of me the first time. I thought I was having a stroke or an anurysm.
Ive gotten those migraine headaches where I see the flashing lights..and I freak out just from that alone. My Mom gets the same thing, except she also gets a severe headache. To see what this poor woman went through on national TV was scary. I could only watch the video once, I thought for sure it was a stroke. She is in good hands, the doctor she is seeing is top notch in LA..so she is getting the best of care. Now I understand why she didn’t go to the hospital after this happened, apparently she has had migraines ever since she was a little girl so it made sense that she probably had an idea what was going on
I get them too. The flashing zig zag lines drives me nuts.
LOL!!!! Glad to hear this. You ain’t going to hell and she is OK.LOL!!!!!!:)
I have had a few migraines and could not see, i could not walk could not talk and felt like I was going to yack my guts out.
In this case, my money is still on her chasing pain pills with liquor.
The most frightening migraine I ever had, was one that didn’t hurt at all - there was only a little facial numbness and the sensation that something was really wrong with my head. Once I realized it was a migraine, it wasn’t scary.
That was the one and only painless migraine I ever had :(
That can happen. As a migrane sufferer I have had the same thing happen.
This story has made me realize that I have a lot to learn about migraines.
My mom, me, my 2 sisters and all 3 of my children get migrains, and not one of us have had this happen to us! My sister and I also get the ‘silent’ migrains, I’ve never heard of this happening.
