On Aug. 20, actress and reality TV star Tori Spelling announced that she'd been hospitalized.
The following day, it emerged that she was discharged the same day she posted about her mystery hospitalization. Page Six published video and photos of Tori being escorted to an SUV in a wheelchair.
The actress and reality TV star, who appeared distraught and unsteady, had visible bruising on her cheek as she left the medical facility.
The news came months after she revealed that some of her five children were also sent to the hospital or treated at urgent care facilities for various health issues, which she later suggested were due to "extreme mold."

Message from the hospital
Tori Spelling took to her Instagram Story on Aug. 20 to reveal that she'd been hospitalized. "4th day here and I'm missing my kiddos so much," the reality TV star and former "Beverly Hills, 90210" actress captioned an image of an IV in her hand and a hospital band around her wrist showing that she was admitted on Aug. 17.
She did not indicate what her specific health issue is, but she did share a message to her five kids…
Message to her kids
Tori Spelling wrote a message to the five children she shares with estranged husband Dean McDermott — who earlier in the summer posted a since-deleted split announcement — on her Instagram Story on Aug. 20, writing, "Grateful and so proud of my strong, brave, resilient and kind to the core children who remain positive no matter what comes my way."
In January 2023 — a month after Tori Spelling herself was admitted to a hospital for having a "hard time breathing, [with] high blood pressure and crazy dizziness" plus "low oxygen" — she revealed that three of her five children went to the hospital within a two-week span. Son Liam McDermott, 16, went to the emergency room for a "viral infection [that] triggered severe migraine and neck pain," she wrote on Instagram. "He's my stoic one," she added, noting that she'd "never seen him in this much pain in his life."
The same day, her youngest, son Beau McDermott, went to the hospital. "Our little… he's so brave," she wrote of Beau, 6. "He's ok! He was born with one kidney that doesn't completely empty so he's having his renal scan done today."
The previous week, Tori and Dean's daughter Stella, 15, was hospitalized and later diagnosed with a hemiplegic migraine, which is a rare type of migraine that usually impacts one side of the body.
In May 2023, Tori Spelling announced that her family had learned they were facing health issues because of an "extreme mold" infestation in their home. The "Beverly Hills, 90210" actress posted photos of her kids at an urgent care clinic on Instagram and opened up about what they've been dealing with, explaining they've "all been on this continual spiral of sickness for months." While she initially assumed the constant illnesses were a byproduct of having five kids in school, she soon figured out it was more than that, she claimed. "When you have your youngest (10 and 6) so sick they are sleeping all day and say they feel dizzy even standing I knew something bigger was going on," she shared. That's when she had a mold inspection done and found their home was infested with "extreme mold."
"Has anyone ever been thru Mold Infections? You just keep getting sick, one infection after another," she wrote. "Respiratory infections. Extreme allergy like symptoms too and like my poor Finn skin rashes as well." Elsewhere in the lengthy post, Tori mentioned the house was at some point "labeled a health hazard," but "it's hard to just uproot a huge family especially in midst of all feeling so sick. … But, we now will vacate the home asap." She said the family has renters insurance and will be looking to relocate to a hotel or other rental property "till we can even grasp what to do." The reality TV star and actress also gave a "non shout out to our public school district for repeatedly not believing our kids were as sick as they've been continually." She closed her message by asking if others have dealt with "mold sickness," which she said is more common than she knew.
Marriage in crisis
Amid all the health news Tori Spelling has shared, she's not included husband Dean McDermott in her posts. In June, hints emerged as to why after Dean announced that his 17-year marriage to Tori was over.
Dean shared the news with a post on Instagram before deleting it hours later. It read in part, "It's with great sadness and a very very heavy heart that after 18 years together and 5 amazing children, that @torispelling and I have decided to go our separate ways, and start a new journey of our own."
In the days that followed, a source insisted to Us Weekly that the pair — who previously went through rough patches including a cheating scandal in 2014 — were not over. "Tori and Dean are not getting a divorce," the source told Us. "Tori and Dean have been better than ever" recently, the source continued, adding that "they've had their ups and downs like any couple, but [they] have continued working on their marriage through couple's counseling. They love each other and are not going to split." According to the source, "Friends suspect that Dean posted that because he and Tori may have gotten into a big blowout fight last night. He obviously regretted it, so he deleted the post."
But soon after, a source told People magazine that Dean meant what he wrote. "[Dean] 100% wants to get out of the marriage. He took down the post because Tori didn't want him to keep it up. But he's packing his bags and is 100% serious about it," that source said. According to People's source, Dean "can't take it anymore" and told Tori "he's done."
