Amber Riley Pays It Forward; Brings 'Airport Angel' John Silverman To 'DWTS' Taping

Amber Riley Pays It Forward; Brings 'Airport Angel' John Silverman To 'DWTS' Taping

Who all caught Amber Riley watching the show on Dancing With The Stars on Monday night (March 30)?

The 29-year-old actress and Season 17 winner brought her new friend John Silverman to the Los Angeles taping.

“Remember my kind friend that I met on the plane that took care of me when I was sick? I brought him to Dancing With the Stars with me today!!! #paybackcanbegoodtoo #grateful,” Amber captioned with a cute photo of the two at the show.

Just a few weeks prior, John was seated next to Amber and instead of ignoring her, helped her out when she became ill on the flight.

“I got really sick on the plane today. But God sat me right next to an angel. He pretty much held my hand and nursed me through the whole flight and even carried my bags to baggage claim. I felt so much better when we landed I had to take an ussie. He taught me a valuable lesson about always being kind to strangers because he had no clue ‘who I was’ and didn’t find out until later,” Amber wrote of her meeting with John on Instagram. “It didn’t matter. He could have just ignored me and pretended I wasn’t there but he didn’t, he cared and offered comfort and anti-nausea medicine lol thank you for being my hero John Silverman. I made a new friend! (Terrible pic of me but that smile was genuine, I’m thankful).”
