Tori Spelling was rushed to an LA hospital over the weekend after displaying a wide array of worrisome symptoms.

Sources say Spelling was coughing uncontrollably and having difficulty breathing. She was reportedly running a high fever which caused hospital staff to quarantine the reality star.

As troubling as all that sounds, there are two important facts that make Tori's make condition somewhat less dire:

1. Despite rumors to the contrary Tori is not pregnant, and 2. Tori does not have Ebola, which is something that her publicist actually felt the need to mention. 

Obviously, Tori is very sick, but insiders say it's most likely a bad case of the flu. She's expected to make a full recovery within the next week, and she was quarantined merely out of an "abundance of caution."

In recent weeks, Kate Middleton has canceled public appearances at the last minute on several occasions, as a result of her ongoing health issues.

Kate's suffering from extreme morning sickness - the result of Hyperemesis Gravidarum, a condition that affects roughly 1 in 100 pregnant women.

Though she's reportedly improving, at the moment, it's been a slow recovery as Kate is still staying with her parents and planning her return to public life.

In the meantime, the Duchess is laid up and extremely limited in her activities. And if the latest reports from the Middletons' home in Bucklebury are any indication, she may be going a bit stir-crazy.

Ever since they went public with the news that Kate Middleton is pregnant with her second baby, the royal family has cautioned that the Duchess may not be making many public appearances during for next several months, as doctors anticipated complications.

Kate suffered from severe morning sickness during her first pregnancy, and now it looks as though the condition has returned and possibly worsened.

Yesterday, Kate was scheduled to attend the opening of a new art studio at a London primary school, but she was forced to cancel at the last minute due to the sudden onset of symptoms from hyperemesis gravidarum.

Responding to rumors that the illness is worse than it was during Kate's first pregnancy, a spokesperson for the royal family issued a statement saying that the sickness is "similar in severity to last time."

On tonight's episode of VH1's Couples Therapy, the housemates will learn that cast member and former Big Brother champion Dick Donato is HIV positive.

Donato says that after keeping his diagnosis a secret for three years, he's decided to go public so that he might use his fame to bring attention to the crippling illness and the difficulty that many patients have with affording treatment.

Donato appeared on TMZ Live today, where he opened up to the site about the hardship of paying for medication that keeps him alive:

"The drugs are extremely expensive," Donato tells Harvey Levin.

"This puts a heroin or cocaine addict to shame. It's like a 110, or 130 dollars a pill. And you cannot miss one dose ... that's when you develop full-blown AIDS, and there is no cure for that."

Donato goes on to say that he was "wiped out" by the cost of treatment and only once he was completely broke was he able to qualify for Medicaid.

(The red-haired reality star specifies that he was diagnosed before the availability of the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare.)

Big Brother legend Dick Donato will make a surprising reveal about himself on VH1's Couples Therapy tonight, and no one saw coming: He's HIV positive.

The reality TV villain, who often goes by the nickname "Evel Dick," is on the VH1 show with his on-again, off-again girlfriend Stephanie Rogness-Fischer.

On Couples Therapy Season 5 Episode 4, he reveals one of the biggest issues in his relationship, and life, with the show's therapist, Dr. Jenn Berman.

In an upcoming episode, he'll also share this with the rest of the cast members, which include The Bachelor's Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell.

Just as surprising as the diagnosis itself was the fact that Dick was competing on Season 13 of Big Brother when producers found this out first.

"They told me that something was wrong with my blood test," he says, noting that constants submit to all kids of testing. "They had done two HIV tests."

Is Kate Middleton expecting twins? That's the rumor going around royal circles, for the second time in as many years, and Kate Middleton pregnancies.

At the root of this is Kate's severe morning sickness, or hyperemesis gravidarum, that has sidelined her both times and is often associated with twins.

Twins didn't materialize as rumored the first time Prince William got Kate Middleton pregnant, of course, so it would still be a long shot this time.

But a lot of people over in the UK would apparently take that action!

The royal betting market, which hilariously exists, has seen plenty of wagering on the 32-year-old having not one, but two royal babies come 2015.

The William Hill betting firm says it recently received about 200 bets on the arrival of twins, including "a significant gamble" that was made in York.

That's enough to send the odds tumbling down from 20:1 to 9:1.

Kate Middleton's hyperemesis gravidarum has rendered her out of commission for weeks, but she is reportedly on the cusp of resuming royal duties.

Katherine Middleton

At least three weeks of severe morning sickness have hampered the pregnant Kate Middleton, 32, although she has avoided having to be hospitalized.

During her first pregnancy with Prince George in late 2012, things were so bad that she was forced to seek medical treatment outside her home.

This time around, things have progressed (slightly) better.

“There will be engagements in October and November," a royal spokesperson said of her schedule. "We just haven’t announced them yet.”

Is it too much, too soon for the ailing, expecting Duchess?

In case you somehow haven't heard, Kate Middleton is pregnant with her second baby, and just like with her first pregnancy, she's experiencing some major morning sickness.

Contemplative Kate Middleton

In fact, Kate's Hyperemesis Gravidarum - as the condition is known - has gotten so bad that it's starting to affect her ability to carry out her royal duties.

Even though it's still very early in the pregnancy, royal officials stated earlier this week that Kate was considering canceling travel plans as a a result of her worsening health issues. 

Today, they confirmed that Kate has indeed been forced to cancel her scheduled trip to Malta, and that Prince William will go in her place.

Still in the throes of morning sickness, Kate Middleton is weighing whether she is well enough to fly to Malta for two days of engagements on behalf of the Queen.

No word if this will touch off another chapter in her war with the Queen if she flakes.

Struggling mightily with severe morning pregnancy sickness, she's in a tough spot.

Her doctors will have to consider if she is well enough to fly to Malta, where Kate Middleton is said to be eager to go, and a decision has yet to be made.

Her staff members at Kensington Palace are giving her as much time as possible to weigh her options, while holding out hope that she'll be able to go.

At the same time they are also making contingency plans to send another member of the family, possibly her husband Prince William, in her place.

Kate, 32, is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum, which also struck her during her first pregnancy with royal baby Prince George back in 2012.

Mayim Bialik is not a fan of Ariana Grande. Specifically the billboards around town promoting the singer's new album, and in Bialik's view, sex and lots of it.

As she shared on her Kveller blog on Friday, the self-proclaimed "old-fashioned" actress is not a fan of ads such as this, especially because of her children.

"There is one for Ariana Grande, and I will go ahead and admit I have no idea who she is or what she does," the 38-year-old mother of sons ages 6 and 9 wrote.

"Based on the billboard, she sells lingerie. Or stiletto heels. Or plastic surgery, because every woman over 22 wishes she has that body, I'm sure."

"Why is she in her underwear on this billboard though? And if she has a talent (is she a singer?), then why does she have to sell herself in lingerie?"

"I mean, I know society is patriarchal and women are expected to be sexy and sexually available no matter what we do, but I guess now I need to explain that to my sons?"

The billboard (below) is actually for Ariana's new album, My Everything, which hit shelves late last month using that same image of Grande on its cover:
