Tori Spelling burned her arm on a hot grill after fall at restaurant

Tori Spelling's 'Benihana Burn' turned out to be worse than she first thought: She needed skin grafts

Tori Spelling burned her arm on Easter Sunday in what husband Dean McDermott is calling an "unfortunate accident" at a Benihana restaurant. 

The "True Tori" star needed skin grafts after tripping and coming into contact with one of the eatery's teppanyaki grills, People reported.

"Not thinking, she grabbed onto the side of the hot grill and burned her arm," a source told the magazine. "At the time, it didn't seem as bad as the doctors told her it was the next day."

McDermott confirmed the incident to the New York Daily News, saying, "It was an unfortunate accident. She had a little burn."

Still, the burn was big enough that she needed skin grafts, he said. The "Beverly Hills, 90210" actress first tried to care for the wound herself, according to the Daily Mail, then went to see a doctor on April 6 because she was in a lot of pain.

The injury didn't seem to have ruined the holiday outing for Spelling, however.

"Thanks for an amazing day @scoutmasterson and @thebillhorn Perfect #Easter Sunday!," she said on Instagram the night of April 5, giving a shout-out to her Guncles.

"Aside from the Benihana Burn!"
