Is it possible the daughter of TV pioneer, Aaron Spelling, is broke?
Actress Tori Spelling who made her name on one of her father’s shows, 90210, is said to be so broke her husband Dean McDermott can’t even afford a much needed vasectomy.
Tori admitted to her money woes during an interview with People’s Magazine via Extra TV:
“I grew up rich beyond anyone’s dreams. I never knew anything else. Even when I try to embrace a simpler lifestyle, I can’t seem to let go of my expensive tastes. And then there’s my shopping problem. I’ve bought ridiculous amounts of stuff for the kids, clothing, toys, crafts.”
She also added:
“It’s not my fault. I’m an uptown girl stuck in a midtown life. I was raised in opulence. My standards are ridiculously high. We can’t afford that lifestyle, but when you grow up silver spoon it’s hard to go plastic.”
I’m pretty sure she is now wishing she didn’t had the falling out with her mother, who is worth an estimated $600 million after inheriting her deceased husband Aaron’s fortune.
In the past, Tori’s had a failed company and recently sold a home at a loss. So despite the former TV star’s unfortunate financial setbacks, the 40-year-old Hollywood star is adjusting well: ”I haven’t bought a purse in three years, and it’s fine.” She told People’s magazine that her four kids are wearing hand-me-down clothes from each other.
Adding, “I look back at that girl who shopped at Gucci in my 20s, and I can’t even relate. I can’t believe I thought it was important.”
Plus, the “Tori & Dean” reality show is in the process of moving to HGTV in 2014, after being canceled on Oxygen. Spelling explained to the magazine, “We don’t have a series on the air right now, so we have to be more restrictive of what we can spend, just like anyone who doesn’t currently have a steady job.”
