Call it a case of TMI.
Tori Spelling may not know what caused the abdominal pain that sent her rushing to the hospital ER twice this week, but her Twitter followers know more than they may care to know about her family's gastro-intestinal travails.
For more than a week, Spelling, along with her husband Dean McDermott, have been chronicling the family's illness, which she called, "The McDermott Family Bug."
According to the New York Post, Spelling was rushed to the hospital twice this week and was forced to cancel hosting the West Coast Liberty Awards on Tuesday night.
Spelling's rep did not return a request for comment about Spelling's condition.
The McDermott Family Bug evidently started Sept. 20, claiming McDermott as its first victim.
"@deanracer has beenN severe abdominal pain all night& throwin up. Worried its a appendicitis. Trying2 convince him 2goto Urgent Care.Right?" Spelling tweeted about her husband.
Apparently, she was able to convince him.
The next tweet came from McDermott: "@ the ER. I've been violently ill all night and day. There goes my Sunday. This really sucks !!!"
After the hospital loaded him up with fluids and anti-nausea meds and ran a battery of tests, all of which came back negative, the couple returned home.
The next night, their son Liam got the bug.
"Oh no! Liam got the same stomach virus. He started puking in his crib 2nite! POOR MONKEY! He's now cozy in between me and @deanracer," Spelling wrote.
Then it was daughter Stella and Spelling's turn. Spelling posted a Twitter update on Sept. 24: "Up all night w/worst migraine& then Stella threw up.She finally got The McDermott Family Bug!Now I'm bedridden w/migraine.Nothing is helpin!"
Stella recovered, but Spelling got worse. McDermott tweeted on Monday: "The hits just keep coming !! T is in the hospital now with severe stomach pains. We're trying to get her comfortable."
McDermott's last post came early Tuesday morning. "Just out of the hospital. After a battery of tests, no conclusive answers. She still feels terrible. Hope it passes soon. She's in a lot ..."
If the Spelling saga isn't riveting enough, there are plenty of examples of celebrities using the micro-blogging platform to tell fans about their daily inanities. For example, there's John Stamos' scrutiny of sweat, Ashton Kutcher's ode to Demi Moore's behind and Katy Perry's updates on the state of her inanely named cat, Kitty Purry.
