For actress/reality starlet Tori Spelling, a recent meal at Benihana resulted in a trip to the hospital. According to Entertainment Tonight, Spelling dined at a location of the hibachi chain in Encino, Calif. with her family for Easter brunch. After all, nothing screams "I'm celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ" quite like fried rice hearts. When she got up to leave, Spelling tripped and fell backwards right on to a searing hot grill.

An eyewitness tells the Daily Mail that she "shouted in pain from the large burn on the back of her right arm." Spelling apparently tried to nurse the injuries at home, but was eventually taken to a local hospital where doctors determined that she would need skin grafts.

There's no word on whether or not Spelling plans to take legal action against the chain, but one thing is for sure, she won't be Benihana's most frequent customer anytime soon. That title currently belongs to Jack King who managed to eat at the restaurant 579 times last year.
