Pregnant reality star Tori Spelling was involved in what she described as a "pretty big accident" today after crashing her car into the wall of her children's school.

Spelling, who is no stranger to paparazzi attention, claims she was being tailed by a shutterbug while on her way to her kids' school in the Los Angeles suburb of Encino.

The 38-year-old mother-of-two, who announced her pregnancy in April, took to Twitter to reveal the details of the accident.

"Paparazzi chased me w/the kids 2school," Selling tweeted.

"I was trying to get away from him and had a pretty big accident. Took down whole wall of school."

But she claims the accident did not deter the snapper from taking pictures.

"He thn STILL got out to try to get pics. 10 school moms chased him away. Wht will it take? Someone dying for paparazzi to stop? Going to dr now to check on baby. I think its just shock."

A friend of Spelling described to People.com what happened: "[The photographer] followed her into the driveway of the school. She pulled into the driveway and tried to get away from him. She reversed to leave and then hit the wall."

Added the pal: "She had minor damage to her car, and there's minor damage to the wall at the school."

A spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to E! News that the incident occurred, but that no injuries were reported, and "no citations were issued to anyone involved".

"She hit a curb near the school and no one was hurt," said LAPD spokeswoman Officer Rosario Herrera.

Tori and her husband Dan McDermott are expecting their third child later this year. The couple has two young children, Liam, 4, and Stella, 2.

Spelling's rep has just issued a statement, telling Entertainment Tonight: "Tori and the kids are really shaken up, but they're ok. Tori is going to the doctor to get checked out but is doing fine."

Pippa Middleton is back on the market!

Definitely. Maybe. Don't quote me.

That's the latest from Old Blighty, courtesy of The Sun newspaper.

The scandal sheet claims that Duchess Catherine's younger sister, Pippa Middleton, 27, has dumped boyfriend Alex Loudon, who accompanied her to the Royal Wedding in April.

Loudon, 30 - a former cricket player who now works in banking - and Pippa haven't been seen in public together for several weeks, prompting speculation that the romance has hit the skids.

"It is common knowledge in their close circle of friends that Pippa and Alex have recently split up," a source is quoted as telling The Times of London.

The pair reportedly parted ways in May.

"Pippa has become very high-profile, and it's put a strain on things," a source told The Sun. "They're moving in different circles."

She certainly has been out and about and mingling up a storm - with her ex George Percy, the son of the Duke of Northumberland.

Pippa and George have recently been spotted around London. They were also snapped taking in a tennis match at the Queens Club last week, as well as a trip to Spain together in May.

But a source tells US Weekly that Pippa's relationship with George is strictly platonic.

"She loves George, but only as a best friend," says a source. "They have always just been mates!"

Regardless, I'll be keeping a close eye on these two - and you, Prince Harry. PopEater reports that Pippa and her brother-in-law have been "going out on several afternoon tea and crumpet dates".

Oh, the scandal!
