Something strange has been going on in the Spelling/McDermott household as of late. It seems that a mysterious illness, playfully dubbed “The McDermott Family Bug” on Spelling’s Twitter, has taken hold of the Hollywood household, children included. This week alone, Spelling has been hospitalized twice because of the unknown sickness that has been plaguing the family for the last couple of weeks.
Below, Tori’s tweeting chronicles:

Tweets since her September 24 post seem tame, but the New York Post reported today that Spelling was rushed to the hospital Monday night, released, and then brought back Tuesday night this week, which forced her to back out of her hosting gig for the West Coast Liberty Awards. Sounds like serious stuff. No conclusive determinations on the mystery sickness have been given.
