Tori Spelling's "rare bleeding disorder"
This is kind of a fluff debate... :p
Tori Spelling recently delivered her fourth child, her fourth c-section, and was re-hospitalized about two weeks later for emergency surgery after her c-section scar split open. She's now talking about the experience and I've noticed that all the articles talk about her "brush with death" from a "rare bleeding disorder," which they then identify as being placenta previa.
Placenta previa is not rare, nor is it a bleeding disorder, nor it is a disorder at all. And it's even more common after multiple c-sections and in a pregnancy soon after a c-section, both of which Ms. Spelling did.
So, is this a case of a pseudo-celebrity coming up with something dramatic to try to stay in the spotlight? Clueless (or childless?) editors who can't seem to use a dictionary? Should she be doing some kind of "don't do what I did" PSA along with her story? Giving Tori the benefit of the doubt, I suppose it's possible that she has a rare bleeding disorder and placenta previa but I find it highly unlikely that a life-threatening bleeding disorder would crop up now instead of in her first pregnancy, kwim?
