After a video of her incoherent speech went viral last night, viewers were left confused and concerned by CBS L.A. reporter Serene Branson's on air Grammy segment. Reports raged that the reporter had suffered from a stroke, but the network has released a statement confirming Serene is "feeling fine."

"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," a statement from the CBS L.A. team read on Serene's bio page on the network's website.

After being introduced from the studio last night, Serene started her Grammy segment with “Well a very, very…” before mispronouncing “heavily” which started a string of jumbled and incoherent phrases.

A "Serene Branson" Twitter page has also popped up since the reporter went viral with her Grammy mix-up, but it is unknown whether it is her official feed.

She may have created an account to slam rumors that she suffered from a stroke and explain that "it was just nerves."
