Bitch Got Sued: The Tori Spelling vs. Benihana Edition
And the next edition of “Bitch Got Sued” will be: Michael K vs. The Paparazzo Who Took That Picture And Gave Him The Image Of Tori Spelling Giving A Handjob. One second after that picture was taken, that hard vegetable went soft.
A few months ago, the inside of the Benihana in Encino, CA smelled like your kitchen after you microwave a plastic Tupperware bowl for too long, because Tori Spelling somehow fell on a hibachi grill and burned herself. Tori reportedly told friends at the time that when she got up to leave the table, she tripped and fell backwards onto a hot hibachi grill. The burn on Tori’s arm was apparently so bad that she needed a skin graft.
After that story came out, many of you didn’t only smell charbroiled plastic, but you also smelled a lawsuit coming. You called it! TMZ says that Tori is suing the Benihana corporation. Tori claims in her lawsuit that she suffered “deep second and third degree burns” and the incident also burned whatever is left of her checking account, because she had to spend money on medical bills and she lost wages. TMZ has a picture of Tori’s alleged hibachi injury.
Tori Spelling is suing because she wants every Benihana to install safety guards around hibachi grills so this doesn’t happen to another person. HA! No, she wants money for damages, of course.
It’s easy to make a joke about how in order to suffer loss of wages you need to make a wage first, but excuse you, Tori and Dean McDermott are paid fame whores and reality tricks. Being that thirsty is a full-time job, bitch. But I am side-eyeing that “loss of wages” thing for a different reason. Tori and Dean make a reality show about EVERYTHING, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they got paid while making a 6-part “docu-series” for Lifetime about Tori’s burn accident. They’re going to call it either EmergenDEAN: Tori Degree Burns or Burn Tori Crisp.
Here’s Tori, Dean and their kids filming their reality show at a farmer’s market the other day.
