It’s not nice to laugh at someone else’s pain, sure, but honestly this story about Tori Spelling falling onto a hibachi at Benihana is so absurd I can’t not include it. And seriously, have you been to a Benihana? I’m genuinely surprised we don’t hear about this happening more often. Anyway, Spelling was just finishing up a delightful family brunch at the Japanese chain restaurant — wait, Benihana does brunch? — when on the way out she caught her heel on something, tripped and fell “onto a scorching hot grill,” a source tells TMZ.
“She shouted in pain from a large burn on the back of her right arm. You could tell she was hurting, but she was trying to put on a brave face for the sake of her four young children who were obviously quite worried.” Spelling initially tried to treat the burn herself, but ended up hospitalized at the Grossman Burn Center in West Hills, California, where she underwent a skin graft. Yikes.
