Tori Spelling claims she’s PREGNANT with her SIXTH child but gets SLAMMED by fans for what appears to be an April Fool’s joke after showing off her ‘bump’ on Instagram
Tori Spelling was slammed after posting a fake pregnancy announcement as an April Fools Day joke this Thursday.
The 47-year-old actress and mother of five caused a stir with her Instagram post on April 1, where she rocked her bare stomach while posing in what appeared to be a doctor’s office and suggested she was expecting another child with the caption, ‘No. 6. ‘
Fans were unclear whether the post was a badly timed announcement or a terribly insipid April Fools Day joke, with the comments split over confusion and congratulations before revealing that the snap was a stunt by one of Spelling’s friends.
Bad Taste: Tori Spelling panicked people when she pretended to be pregnant for an April Fools Day joke, with many calling the joke ‘insensitive’ and ‘tacky’
“This must be an April Fools [sic] joke????’ wrote Bravo’s notoriously blunt Flipping Out star Jeff Lewis.
Others reminded Tori that practical pregnancy jokes are a big no-no on April Fools Day, with a commenter explaining, ‘This better be true because it’s NOT a funny joke about being pregnant[.] Many women would be triggered by this! Hopefully it is true and congratulations. ‘
“ If this is an April Fools joke, you’ll be so toasted, ” wrote another, adding a “ see no evil ” monkey emoji.
Carrying on that message, others told the Beverly Hills, 90210 actress who joked about expecting was “tacky,” “trashy,” “tone-deaf.”
If this is an April Fools joke, shame on you. Pregnancy is not a joke! ‘
Confusion: There was a lot of confusion in the comments, with some congratulating the mother of five while others reminding her that her pregnancy is nothing to joke about
Others took the post at first glance and flocked to the comments to send their love …
Actress Dawn McCoy seemed happy with Spelling, saying, ‘Ohhhhhhh !!! This is the BEST news !!! I am so happy for you!! A lovely little half dozen !!! ‘
While fans and friends seemed divided in the comments, Tori’s hairstylist girlfriend Laura Rugetti later revealed it was a joke on her social media.
Rugetti shared her Instagram story with Spelling in the morning, but reposted the fake noun in the afternoon, adding, “Tori, didn’t you tell me anything this morning?”
