In the suit, filed against Benihana Encino Corp. in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday, Spelling claims that she was visiting the company's Encino location in April when she slipped and fell, sustaining "deep second and third degree burn injuries requiring hospitalization and surgery." 9021-oh, no!

A spokesperson for Benihana has not yet responded to TheWrap's request for comment.
