Brooke Shields revealed that she had a grand mal seizure in September, just days before the debut of her cabaret show in New York City.
The 58-year-old actor said the incident happened on Sept. 7 as she was waiting to be seated at a New York City restaurant.
"I go [into the restaurant], two women come up to me; I don’t know them. Everything starts to go black," Shields told Glamour. "Then my hands drop to my side and I go headfirst into the wall. I start having a grand mal seizure."
Shields then explained that her seizure was triggered by low sodium.

Welcome to our world, Brooke.
