If you haven’t had the pleasure of dining at the authentic Japanese restaurant Benihana, here’s a picture of the hibachi grill for your reference:
The Daily Mail says that Tori Spelling, The Deaner (copyright: Allison), his son and their four kids were leaving a Benihana’s in Encino, CA after having Easter lunch when she tripped and fell backwards onto the hibachi grill. Tori burned the shit out of the back of her arm, but she didn’t go to the hospital right away. The Daily Mail just happens to have pictures of Tori looking at her arm outside of Benihana. Tori went to the doctor the next day and she was told that she burned herself so bad that she needed a skin graft. The Daily Mail’s “source” put it like this:
“When she got up to leave and tripped, falling backwards on to a scorching hot grill. She shouted out 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 quite obviously worried,’ says the source. ‘Dean looked upset too, but you could tell they were doing their best to stay calm and not alarm the children.
Tori’s doctor’s determined she had a severe burn and suggested they remove the damaged skin and graft skin from another area of the body. She questioned if it was absolutely necessary but doctors said she risked severe infection and scarring if she didn’t act right away. She underwent a skin graft last week and must now spend several days recuperating. Friends are praying for her to make a full recovery.”
I’ve tried to figure out how it’s possible to burn your arm on the hibachi grill at Benihana and I’ve come up with four possibilities:
1. You’re really fucking drunk.
2. You’re really fucking drunk and you slip while dancing on a chair.
3. As you’re getting up to leave, you spot Joan Collins sashaying through the front door and you’re so overcome with emotion from seeing her glamour and beauty in person that you fall back and slide along the table into the hibachi grill. This possibility doesn’t really make sense, because Joan Collins wouldn’t go to a Benihana even if you left a trail of diamonds from the front gate of her estate to the hibachi grill.
4. Dean starts whining about something and you throw yourself on the hibachi grill to get him to stop.
Tori Spelling is approximately 98% plastic so her ass is brave for even sitting near that hibachi grill. I’d be afraid that I’d melt into a puddle of liquid plastic on the floor and then I’d have to count on Dean’s incompetent ass to take me to the Mattel factory to be put back together.
Well, Tori’s on her way to a full recovery and that Benihana has now reopened after closing a few days to air out the burnt plastic fumes from its dining room.
