TORI SPELLING REACTS TO FANS SAYING SHE LOOKS LIKE WENDY WILLIAMS AND A 'WHITE CHICKS' CHARACTER

Tori Spelling is taking all of the commentary and criticisms surrounding her looks in stride. The 51-year-old Beverly Hills, 90210 star addressed some of her most common comments head-on on the latest episode of her misSPELLING podcast. 

"You can ask me anything. You can say anything, pretty thick skin," the mother of five shared. "I do read the comments — look at me, I'm human. I can feel them, but I can also have a good sense of humor about them." 

During the episode, a producer read out a comment, saying, "She looks like a white Wendy Williams."

In response to the comparison to the popular talk show host, Spelling said, "So a lot of people have written that comment, and I actually think Wendy Williams is very pretty. She hasn't been very kind to me in the past, but she is a pretty woman and I feel bad for her situation. But I feel like commenting on that, you'll never be able to unsee it."

Spelling noted that she didn't get it at first, saying, "Once that comment was made, I was like, 'Huh?' And then I was like, 'Oh, can't unsee that!'"

She also brought up a regular comparison she receives, which is that of comedians Marlon Wayans and Shawn Wayans in the 2004 movie White Chicks, where the two Black men play undercover cops posing as white women.  

"'She looks like Marlon and Shawn Wayans in disguise in the movie White Chicks,' and I'm like, 'Fair,'" Spelling said in response. 

Spelling said that her five kids thought she'd "made it" when Williams once declared that "Tori Spelling has Ebola," a claim she said was false. 

"They were like, 'Mom, you made it!'" Spelling said, laughing. 

Spelling has been candid about the good, the bad, and the ugly in her life recently. She is currently in the middle of a divorce from her husband of 18 years, Dean McDermott.

As for Williams, the TV personality and former radio DJ has stepped out of the spotlight in recent years as she battles aphasia and frontotemporal dementia. Her diagnosis and care were highlighted in the Lifetime docuseries, Where Is Wendy Williams?

Producer Erica Hanson told ET that Williams -- who, along with her son, Kevin Hunter Jr., co-produced the film -- saw the docuseries as an opportunity to "be able to tell her story so honestly and truthfully" and to be a "catalyst for change."
