Poor Babies: Celebrities Who Tweet From Their Sick Beds!
Tori Spelling has been in and out of the hospital all week, complaining of severe abdominal pain. Apparently, seeking treatment has brought no relief, or even a conclusive diagnosis. I know this because her husband, Dean McDermott, has been keeping me posted 140 alphanumeric characters at a time. Tweeting about going to the hospital seems a surprising way to handle stress when a loved one is ill—at first. When I went back further into Dean’s twitter history I noticed he’d had an unspeakably unpleasant flu virus earlier this month. I noticed because he squawked, I mean tweeted, about his own discomfort more than he tweeted about Tori’s. To be fair, several tweets were concern for the health of his family, as he started his own recovery. There was something familiar, though, about the progression of these sick celebrity tweets. Has it become a celebrity trend to tweet health updates to concerned fans? After the jump, five more cases of celebrities tweeting their sickness.
For the record, Tori Spelling hasn’t twittered a single complaint. In fact, her first tweet was in 2007, but I only count 12 more chirps from her since that day. The busy lady needs to get well, and then to get some free time. With luck and TLC, she’ll fight this off. And then tweet me, okay, Tori?
