    Tori Spelling files lawsuit against Benihana after suffering a burn from restaurant grill

    Tori Spelling is applying some legal heat to Benihana after suffering a burn from one of the restaurant chain's hibachi grills on Easter Sunday.

    The "Beverly Hills, 90210" actress filed a personal injury lawsuit this week in Los Angeles County Superior Court claiming damages in excess of $25,000.

    "Plaintiff Victoria Davey Spelling slipped and fell at Benihana Restaurant (in) Encino, California, and sustained deep second and third degree burn injuries requiring hospitalization and surgery," the complaint obtained by the Daily News states.

    The scary incident in April caused Spelling, 42, to suffer wage loss, serious medical expenses and lost earning capacity, the lawsuit states.

    The mother of four kids with husband Dean McDermott is demanding a jury trial.

    "It was an unfortunate accident. She had a little burn. We turned it around and had a lovely Easter," McDermott told The News in April.

    He wasn't sure back then if the injury would lead to legal action.

    "I don't know. That's something I don't want to comment on. She had a skin graft," he said.

    "She's recovering, doing pretty good," McDermott told Extra in late April. "(She's) at home resting."

    Spelling was seen wearing a long bandage over her right forearm after the incident.

    She wore a flesh-colored compression sleeve over the area in photos of her 7-year-old daughter Stella's birthday party in June.

    Such garments are used to help protect against infection and painful complications with scarring.

    Wow, that face is not looking good. And she was probably drunk if she did a spill onto a grill.

    My high school wood shop teacher would hold up his hand and show that 1 of his fingers was missing and say "Accidents do be happening."

    how is that stopping her from working?? long as she's taking something to help stop any infection and control the pain, all she has to do is wear long sleeves. it's not like she has a career that involves a lot of manual labor.

    Why is their fault that she fell?
    Suing for "wage loss" and "lost earning potential". Is she serious? What wages and earning potential?

    The expression on all the young kids' faces show it all.
    You know they have lived their lives constantly hearing their parents fight and hearing total their parents voice nothing but distrust with each other and everyone one else. Plus they must have to deal with not being kids because Mommie has to be the center of attention.

    :haha:

    She lost her earning capacity when her mother cut her off from the family fortune, right about the same time her 15 minute career tanked. I guess that burn caused her to miss out on a part on the Walking Dead.


    What are they going to argue, that the restaurant was negligent for not putting up chain links fences around the hot plates? :facepalm:

    the pathetic, desperate nature of both of them makes me wonder why they decided to have a brood like this.

    You have to feel for those kids. They look totally miserable. Even her husband doesn't look totally happy.

    I don't know how any restaurant manages margins, you have to have a attorney on staff.
    She was probably drunk for her lovely Easter brunch with her kids and gold-digging adulterous husband, who she should just end his pain and let him go on and live his life. But it's the restaurant's fault.

    She's the same broad who bailed on press engagements for her reality show because she faked Ebola.

    She part of the underemployed that @ltd86 is always bitching about. She gave up looking for work thanks to Obama.

    As annoying as she is, she's not that bad of an actress. Of course, I'm only comparing her to the other vapid broads who are working on tv now.
