Is Tori Spelling Flat Broke?

“Tori and Dean are going broke,” a close family insider tells Star. “They can’t keep up with the cost of living their famous Hollywood life, and it’s taking a huge emotional toll on them.”

While publicly, the couple grin and bear the homespun nature of their family life, behind closed doors, Tori, 40, and Dean, 46, agonize over how they’re going to raise their four kids. Uprooting their busy lives for the upcoming reality show, Tori & Dean: Cabin Fever, for example, was huge strain on the family. “And the sad thing is, they barely got any money for doing that show,” the insider explains, “But they have to take any opportunity that comes their way, because they are so desperate for money.”

“Tori didn’t get her fair share of her father’s wealth,” the insider says. “She struggled a lot financially but did manage to make ends meet from doing reality shows with Dean.” But as their family size increased [they have four children], so did their expenses, and Tori was forced to come up with creative ways to bring in more money: She wrote six books, launched a jewelry line with HSN, opened a furniture store and, most recently, started a children’s clothing line. “The money from Tori’s random business vantures helped to keep them afloat,” the source says. “But it wasn’t enough to maintain their lifestyle.”

Dean, meanwhile, has happily remained a stay-at-home dad throughout most of their marriage. But in recent years, the couple’s financial situation has become so dire, Dean is trying to contribute more. “He’s now trying to build a new career as a chef to provide for their family,” the friend say. “But he hasn’t come far enough to achieve any stability.”

As for Tori, “She is desperate and at a loss as to what to do,” the pal adds. “It’s not like she can just get a normal job, because she’s a celebrity.” She recently signed on to star in (and produce) a sitcom pilot for ABC Family. If the show gets picked up, it would represent the only steady income she’s seen in years. But the odds are stacked against her. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “In TV, something like 92 percent of all shows fail.”

To help out, Dean could stop getting ugly tattoos and he could start some Cam4 work.

Tori just needs to wait a bit longer and then she could start a show with her kids and become the new Kris Jenner.

What happened to her jewelry business on one of the shopping channels? Some people do very well financially with that. I thought she was fairly successful. Did that implode?

Her husband could work, for starters. I would be licking Candy's bleached asshole if it would help part with her money.

Tori and Candy are on good terms now, does anyone really think she'd allow her daughter and grandchildren to live in poverty?

Whatever happened to her brother?

He fucked the right trollette. He'll never go hungry with all that Spelling money.

R8: she looks like Carol Channing in that picture.

I feel so sorry for them!

If they had THAT much money would they be doing 4th rate reality shows?

I just started reading her new book. She refers to Dean's first son as "our stepson". How is that not offensive to the kid, he is not Dean's stepson. How the hell did that get by the publisher?

Wow. Why?

Did all of Aaron's money go to Candy?

by Anonymousreply 1511/18/2013

r15: Aaron left 800k to each kid. Since Randy's never been on the outs, I'd think this would indicate he fully expected Candy to carry on supporting them.

Candy has publicly blamed Tori for Aaron's death. Tori was refusing to speak to or see either parent in the months before he died. Candy says this broke his spirit and he wittled away and croaked. It's all very dramatic and soapy.

800 K is not a gigantic sum, but you should be able to live off of it. Moreover, isn't 90210 still generating residuals?

Tori seems like a narcissistic cunt to me. I'm not surprised she hastened her father's death, R16.

by Anonymousreply 1811/18/2013

"wittled away"? Huh?

by Anonymousreply 1911/18/2013

Live off of 800k in LA?? To make that money last, she can comfortably spend 40k per year. 50k if she is well invested in stocks, not bonds. Possible in Iowa or Pennsyltucky, not LA.

by Anonymousreply 2011/18/2013

She has other income, R20

The kids are NOT cute, but they don't look like Tori. They all have beady, close-set eyes like their father.

Did Dean have his vasectomy? Hahahaha

What is the lesson learned?

NEVER BURN YOUR BRIDGES IN LIFE! Especially if that bridge leads from Poverty, USA to Billionaires Row.

Is she a fat bloke?

by Anonymousreply 2511/18/2013

I'm laughing!

by Anonymousreply 2611/18/2013

If I were in her position, I'd cry poor in public in the hope that my incredibly wealthy mother would give me enough to live on.

And then I'd live on it.

Candy has to be the cunt from hell to hang on to so much money and deny her kids and grandchildren. Its not normal. Watch the bitch leave her money to charity when she croaks.

by Anonymousreply 2811/19/2013

Candy was a call girl who became one of the richest bitches in Bel Air. Her marriage to Spelling was difficult. He preferred the type of girl Candy used to be and flaunted them in her face. If you listen to Candy, she comes off like the old hooker she is. Tori is obnoxious, and would have never been in showbiz if it weren't for her father. But Tori has drive and guts, much more than Mom, and she'll get what she wants. Eventually.

what ever became of her first husband?

by Anonymousreply 3011/19/2013

More straight people with more children than they can afford. Deciding to become parents involves a little foresight, some ability or willingness to look ahead and figure out what your prospects are. If throwing your kids on the mercy of your not-so loving family constitutes your plan for parenthood, maybe you ought to look into contraception.

As for "maintaining their lifestylye," rich, ignorant no-talents are the only people who consider that a problem.

I'd say I hope she goes hungry, but I think she's been hungry for like 15 years.

R31 has nailed it. End of thread.

They could do what other people who need money do ... get jobs.

They're both actors, right? Well, get acting bitches! Your children aren't going to ruin themselves.
