Tori Spelling was rushed to the hospital over the weekend, with reports she may have contracted the highly contagious Enterovirus.
There were reports she was quarantined with Ebola-like symptoms, but we’re told it’s more likely to be a virus or pneumonia.
The 41-year-old “True Tori” star appears to be running herself ragged and neglecting her health.
She’s become so rundown that she had to be rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center suffering from respiratory problems, paired with a really bad cough. Doctors feared it might even be a case of Enterovirus D68.
An insider said, “Tori was not only admitted to the hospital, she was put under quarantine and neither Dean nor the children are allowed anywhere near her for fear she may have contracted the contagious non-polio Enterovirus. She’s had a cough and low grade fever for more than a week now, but refused to see a doctor. She’s been filming her show, and she and Dean worked hard on a birthday bash last weekend for their daughter Hattie, so Tori wasn’t about to call off the party because she didn’t feel well”.
The source adds, “Tori has been feeling sick for at least a week. She was coughing and complained of being short – winded. She had a fever, but when it skyrocketed past 101 this weekend, Dean insisted she go to the Emergency Room where doctors quickly admitted her.”
The Enterovirus seems to hit children but adults can also come down with the respiratory illness.
There is an outbreak of Enterovirus in 46 states, including California, and more than 800 cases have been diagnosed.
Most people with the virus start with symptoms of a common cold such as runny nose and cough. But they then run a high fever and experience breathing problems.
A source said of Spelling, “Doctors are currently running tests. And they hope to have a diagnosis as soon as possible. But in the meantime, they have Tori quarantined and are not letting anyone see her, especially her four children, who would be highly susceptible to the virus”.
Us Weekly has stated that Tori has pneumonia, but that news has not yet been confirmed.
There have been some rumors suggesting that Tori may be pregnant with baby #5, but that could be just for ratings for their reality show “True Tori”.
