Tori Spelling is back in the news for the second time this week, but it’s not good publicity. Spelling is being called out for dyeing her children’s hair platinum blonde to match her hair, complete with dark roots.
Last week, Tori Spelling made the news when it was announced that she was suing Benihana for a slip and fall onto one of the hot cook tables. According to Us Magazine, Spelling was there with her family, including husband Dean McDermott, when she fell onto the hibachi grill, burning herself.
“It was an unfortunate accident,” the troubled star, 48, told the newspaper. “She had a little burn… She had to get skin grafts.”
Asked by the Daily News if the couple would be pressing charges against Benihana, McDermott answered, “I don’t know.”
But ironically, burns are what can happen when harsh bleaching agents are used on the scalp, particularly the scalps of very young children, according to Perez Hilton. They are reporting that Spelling likes her kids to match her own bleach blonde hair.
“Tori thinks it’s cool for her kids to be a mini version of herself.”
Of all of the hair coloring methods available, bleach is the harshest and the most damaging. While posting pictures of herself and children, Spelling got a lot more angry backlash than she ever anticipated.
Starpulse reported about “mean girl moms” who call out the behavior of other mothers for things like hair color and applying make-up to young children, though make-up is easily removed and hair bleach is not. However, many fans are also coming to her defense.
“I will never understand how women, MOTHERS cut other mothers DOWNS!!! I don’t care who you are. Don’t you understand we need to stick together. NONE of you are really loosing [losing] sleep over another families kids hair color.”
Spelling has also been seen taking her kids, including 8-year-old Liam, for special spa days to bond with their mom.
Do you think it’s wrong for Tori Spelling to dye her children’s hair?
