*Update: Popdust reports that CBS 2, has issued the following statement about Branson’s condition:
“Serene Branson was examined by paramedics on scene immediately after her broadcast. Her vital signs were normal. She was not hospitalized. As a precautionary measure, a colleague gave her a ride home and she says that she is feeling fine this morning.”
In the video below, Branson begins her backstage coverage of the awards, but after a few words she stumbles over the word “heavily,” and try as she might to recover, she continues only with a stream of incomprehensible, gibberish words.
It is feared that Branson may have had a stroke on air, which could explain the disintegration of her speech.
