Former “Beverly Hills, 90210” star Tori Spelling posted to her Instagram Stories on Dec. 21 letting fans know she’d been hospitalized after having difficulty breathing.
Spelling’s post doubled as both an update and a clap back at the haters who didn’t believe her when she said she was feeling unwell, according to US Weekly. “Here I am in [the] hospital since late last night,” Spelling wrote in the post. Instagram Stories expire 24 hours after being posted unless the user chooses to save the content.
“To all of you who gas lit me when you were told I [was] too sick to work, well here I am,” she continued, according to US Weekly.
