    Most likely was a massive TIA (mini stroke) and yes, your vitals are normal. Only a MRI will confirm. And only she will be able to confirm that info. (HIPPA)

    You can tell something did happen. The concern on her face realizing she wasn't saying what she wanted. I am glad they are saying she is ok.

    Could be a number of things. When I'm going into a seizure, I will do exactly this. And initially the VA, trying to figure out what was happening to me, suspected a TIA, and other stroke-related causes, until a neurologist finally diagnosed me with a form of epilepsy.

    Point is, no sense in speculating about what we saw on TV. Lots of things could cause this, and only medical evaluation will determine what it was.

    Serene Branson didn't suffer a stroke. I researched this thoroughly today after making an AUTO-TUNE REMIX of her that went VIRAL. Consequentially, idiots who either got wrong news sources, or decided to diagnose her over the web by themselves, told me I was tasteless, threatened to kill me, told me I needed to die of a stroke myself, etc. It was really entertaining to read and only made my video go viral more.

    Anyway, SERENE BRANSON is fine. SHE admitted HERSELF that she fumbled. CBS news consistently reported that she was inspected on site and by a doctor the next day and that NOTHING IS WRONG. I'm sure despite me saying this someone on RJ will flame me after seeing my remix here:

    Jake, no flame, but there was obviously something that happened to her. To me this comes across in bad taste. On the other hand, I enjoyed your remix of the attempted rape, tv interviewer, and brother. That was real funny.

    This happens to me and my mom all the time. While you and oversensitive America are quick to think Serene has some disease, she DOESN'T. Get over being nancy no fun and welcome to the internet.

    And no, nothing happened to her. Go read a credible news source on it like CBS or follow her on twitter. She said herself, "it was just my nerves."

    No flame, but don't lecture me until you have your facts. Of course you are not alone. Go read the comment section under my video. There's a million nancy no funs out there flaming me thinking I'm insensitive because they have faulty information.

    I really wasn't even intending it to come across as a lecture. I had seen the CBS report, and read a few other pieces. I'm sure not a neurologist or any expert, but I just did not believe that nothing physical occurred in her brain. I have heard of a "case of nerves" causing someone to stutter or stammer, but never a series of totally incoherent sounds. Anyway, having seen those reports, I was just offering my honest opinion. Wasn't intending to offend.

    Of COURSE something physical occurred in her brain. Whether or not it was something simply fleeting or not is up for debate though. Anytime anyone fumbles there's something physically occurring in their brain. I've seen things like this all the time, just not done by professionals.

    You can offend me though. You're not the only one who finds the video offensive. 1/3 of all the viewers hate it. But 2/3 love it. It's the perfect recipe for the video to go viral.

    i really love the part where it says ¨Dear YouTube world, please consider this viral video as my resume for music producer and/or video editor at your company.  I look forward to hearing from you. Regards, Jake Benson¨

    Wow, that was interesting to watch. Poor thing, that must have been really scary, she handled it well in that respect.
    Doesn't have to be a stroke to cause that though.
    A number of things can trigger such symptoms, including migraines...
