Why isn't Tori Spelling filthy rich?

Wasn't her dad like a billionaire?

by Anonymousreply 26006/06/2020

From what I understand, she squandered everything. Doesn't surprise me--when your cast on a show as one of the "hot friends" when you are anything but that, it's probably a sign of nepotism in the family. She probably thought she'd be getting roles forever.

He left his money to Candy and only a small sum to both kids. Her brother took his and moved off to a lower cost of living city Portland? Phoenix? and lives a quiet life. I wonder if he thought they wouldn’t handle the money well or if he didn’t want them to be spoiled.

Aaron had hundreds of millions so it will be interesting to see who Candy leaves the money to.

Aaron left his money to Candy Spelling his wife. He left a small sum to his kids thinking his wife would continue to take care of the kids but Candy had other ideas. She felt the kids should make it on their own with the seed money Aaron left them. At the time, both Randy and Tori were working actors. Randy left Hollywood and leads a mostly normal life. Tori is a train wreck and Candy did not approve of her and Dean (I think she broke up his marriage). Tori claims her mother gives her nothing, her mother claims Tori's spending is out of control and she was not going to cover her extravagant life.

She and her mother are shopping addicts. They have storage units filled from floor to ceiling with tons of stuff they've bought. Most of which is still brand new and unused. I believe Candy has a massive doll collection and had at least one entire room in their infamous mansion devoted to them. She has even more dolls in storage. I believe Tori's shopping addiction is even more severe than Candy's and that was most likely another reason Aaron didn't leave her much.

by Anonymousreply 1404/27/2020

She had a gift wrapping room too! She was featured on one of those E shows when she was moving out of the mansion and into a condo on Wilshire. I think Candy was born and raised in Beverly Hills and met Aaron when she was still a teenager. He was from a dirt poor family in Texas and self made so they probably had very different attitudes towards money.

Candy does support Tori though on her terms. She pays for private schools for the grandchildren, she bought them cars and she rents them houses to live in. Tori would prefer a big check and she’s peeved that the houses have been in the Valley and the cars are not Bentleys.

If Tori gets money in the will it’s safe to assume she’ll blow through it in 5 years and end up in a trailer park.

She's only known for being the child of a billionaire and that overrated shitty teen drama she was on 30 years ago. Her acting career without the nepotism was shit. She's one of those many hasbeen stars of yesteryear who can only get work in Lifetime, Hallmark and soap operas with the odd commercial or two every now and then. If I was a famous actor and I still had several decades of career/life left and that's the only work I could get, I'd be humiliated and probably kill myself regardless of the size of the paychecks from those dreadful gigs.

Leaving your two kids 75K when you are worth hundreds of millions of dollars is the equivalent of spitting in their faces. If you want to keep them on a budget, fine. Put a hundred million in a trust and dole it out to them monthly. To leave them nothing was fucking mean. And let's not even start on the cunt mother. You don't just abandon your kids like that after raising them in sheer luxury. It's cruel.

Echoing R25, it's a special level of asshole move to raise your children to be non-functional in the real world and not leave them anything to live off of. It's one thing if Tori got a reasonable inheritance and blew through it all on her own, but $75,000 is a blatant "fuck you". The only surprising thing about this story is that Tori's brother is well adjusted enough to live on his own.

Aaron Spelling left each of his children $800K a peice, not $75K. His net worth at the time of his death was somewhere between $600 million and a billion dollars, very wealthy man from his television producing career in Hollywood.

Candy was his wife and the mother of his two children so of course she got everything. They both knew Tori was bad with money which is the reason she was only left $800K by her dad. Candy sold the manor estate in Holmby Hills and bought a $47 million dollar condo in that brand new high rise building in century city. She's set.

Candy also finds Broadway plays too, so she's doing exciting things in her later years. She also has an apartment in NYC she stays in when she's working on her Broadway plays. She flies back and forth between NYC and Los angeles all the time. She's living her best damn life.

Candy also has a nice Instagram too. She could very easily put the Real housewives of Beverly Hills to shame, LOL.

He could have set up a trust that was tightly controlled and Tori would get a monthly allowance. That would've been the responsible thing to do.

You don't raise a kid as a lazy, spoiled princess with no emphasis on work ethic, skills, education or any knowledge of the real world and then expect that kid to go out in the world and do something with their life in their mid-30s. It was terribly irresponsible of Aaron and Candy to do that.

Rich people put their money in trusts for their kids. The kids get a monthly payment. That's how you handle a kid who doesn't know how to budget. You never just give them a huge lump sum.

I get what you are saying that she's an adult and should earn her own money but Candy didn't earn that money either. Why should the wife get the whole estate leaving his own children with such a small amount? Do we really know that Aaron wanted to leave his children so little or did their mother really manipulate him? Apparently Tori and Candy have had their issues but Tori and Aaron were close, weren't they?

The big mistake Tori made was she didn't marry money like her mother did. Instead she married a loser who can't provide for his family. At least the second time around anyway, I have no idea if the first husband had money. Don't tell me the spending is all on Tori. Dean hardly looks like Mr. Responsibility.

Why do you paupers, poors and simpletons keep saying this? You realizes most wealthy people set up irrevocable trusts for their irresponsible kids. It' not rocket science. They get a set allowance for the rest of their life, someone professional manages their money and invests it for them. They cant be fired and almost impossible break their control of the money.

Aron and Candy were irresponsible for not doing that for their kids. It's arrogance to blame the kids you raised calling them irresponsible. It was your job to teach them that when they were young. It's not just going to suddenly kick in at 30 something when they literally never saw you do that as parents either.

I'm sure Randy is equally as pissed. I mean he's a life coach that' like being a professional DJ. Aaron reminds me of my grandfather. We had a long discussion about his will. His rule is that the money and property go to his 3 children (my grandmother died), but my aunt died with two children. Instead of giving my cousins equal shares of her portion he is just going to give their mother's share to the oldest. I told him that it sounds rather cruel to leave out her other child. My grandfather told me that it won't be his business, since he will already be dead, if my cousin wants to give money to her brother that's up to her. He also had the nerve to ask me to be the executor of the estate. My father is still alive and I'm the second born, aka, I ain't getting shit. I laughed basically told him hell no, I don't need to get in the middle of the drama he is going to cause with his death.

I understand people can do what they want with their money, but why do some go out of their way to cause unnecessary pain? Aaron's case was very cruel. People talk about Tori's great sin of being a shopaholic. Alright, but why was Randy also punished with pittance of an inheritance? If Aaron didn't provide for his children or at least help them come down from the shock of poverty, then their mother should have setup a trust or allowance. It's not like Candy had actually work for that money and these are allegedly her children.

For all we know, Aaron might have wanted to set up a trust for his kids' benefit, or maybe he actually did, but Candy may have manipulated him to revoke it. There was so much money involved that Aaron should have hired a good estate planning lawyer to set up a trust or trusts, while he was still competent to do so.

[quote]From what I read Candy had a new will drawn up and someone convinced Aaron (who was on his deathbed) sign it. She practically locked the room and wouldn't lay off him until he signed the new will.

That is called "undue influence," and could have been the basis for Tori and her brother to challenge that will in court. A court could have found that undue influence took place, and set aside that will, and issued a court order determining the distribution of the estate.

I guess Tori and her brother must not have had enough money to hire the lawyer(s) to challenge it, which would have been expensive. And it would have been difficult to prove in court, unless there were reliable witnesses.

Tori apparently has many storage units completely full of stuff she bought over the years. I read that for a while she had a store called InvenTori, where she was trying to sell it piece by piece. She should just sell off the entire collection to someone who could in turn sell the stuff. At least she would make some money off it.

Before she dies (or maybe already has) I'm sure she'll set up an irrevocable trust for Tori and Randy and their kids , which will be doled out monthly to cover basic living expenses. Stuff such as housing, food, medical and dental. Probably bonuses for Birthdays and Christmas too. Likely college funds for the kids that wish to go.

No doubt Candy will appoint someone to see that the money is used as she intended. I'm sure she also knows she can't give too much or Tori and Dean will be hitting the kids up for money. Maybe even hitting Randy and his kids up too. She probably wants to make sure Dean gets as little as possible also.

by Anonymousreply 10705/18/2020

R107 it was mentioned at the time that Tori’s first baby got a 10 mil trust fund. I assume the rest get the same.

And then there's this.

"Turns out that her son Randy Spelling won't let the family matriarch spoil his two daughters over the holidays.

"I'm not allowed," Candy told me at the opening of The Color Purple on Broadway (she's a producer of the show). "One or two gifts is all and it can't be over the top."

Randy, a former child actor and reality star, is now a life coach and lives in Portland, Oregon with his wife Leah and their daughters Sage, 4, and Lotus, 2.

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott's children—Liam, 8, Stella, 7, Hattie, 4, and three-year-old Finn—are a different story. "Her kids like a lot of gifts," Candy said.

Candy always managed the money. She said years ago that Aaron didn't care to be bothered with finances, and always left everything up to her as far as money went.

So that probably explains the $800K inheritance to the children. She probably made that decision.

She has more issues than Vogue. Perpetually rich-broke, a small army of usually unhappy looking kids, and still thinking about #6. By all accounts, #4 almost killed her. She let Dean get back in bed 3 weeks after she had #3.

One has to wonder how Candy and Aaron expected Tori to turn out as an adult. Why didn't they try to give her more life-skills? They HAD TO KNOW Tori didn't have enough true talent or charisma to be a proper actress. They probably just expected her to stay married to her first husband, who would have taken care of her... but, still.

Anyway, does anyone remember Randy Spelling's reality show?

They were spoiled though, very obviously and publicly spoiled their whole lives, so the tiny amount left to them looks terrible.

My mother had a sizable retirement fund when she was diagnosed with terminal cancer.

I actually had quietly decided to share the fund since I was getting the house and everything in it. Then when she died we discovered she'd forfeited the entire retirement to her employer so no one got anything, and put that nasty "for reasons well known to them" language in her will about her eldest kids.

It was so obviously a "fuck you" but I still don't really know why. She was just a mean old bitch. Some people are, especially when it comes to money.

Not sure, R120. She was more liberal than my fascist far-right dad and so didn't talk about politics out loud, lest she make him angry, so I assumed for a long time she was liberal, but in retrospect I'm not so sure. Probably center right to light right, if I had to guess.

Her whole family is just mean as dogs. Her (probably closeted) sister is the smartest one in the family and not coincidentally the nicest one, but she also has her limits.

Back to Tori though, I'd love to hear more from people who knew Aaron Spelling and worked with him. Did they think he was a nice guy or did he have a nasty streak?

Tori has had more privilege and opportunity than 99.9% of the world so I don't feel sorry for her one bit. If it's true that Candy is paying her rent and her grandchildren's school tuition then how hard would it be for Tori and her douchebag husband to come up with some way to put food on the table, buy clothes and make a couple car payments?

Randy was smart to take his 800K and get the fuck out of Dodge. I wonder if he even speaks to his mother or sister anymore.

Tori and Candy's private hell will be after they die and find themselves locked in a room together for all of eternity fighting over who gets the one penny on the floor. And Aaron will be in his suite watching it all on TV.

I worked in one of the high-rises on Wiltshire Blvd where Candy lived before the upgrade. She was a nasty cunt to everyone there. She didn't pay her HOA as part of her cunty way to get even and sued the building to get out of it at the same time. She then moved into the new Century with it's 2 floor penthouse, ordered them to restructure the building so she could have her own private indoor swimming pool. She sued them too for not having a gourmet restaurant she was told they would have in the main lobby.

Agreed, R123. If Candy is indeed covering rent and school fees then Tori can have no real complaints, that’s far more than most adults will get and covers the bulk of expenses. A reasonable job of some kind for one of Tori or her husband would cover everything else if they don’t expect to live like billionaires.

Sure, many children of the very wealthy live much better than Tori does, but she wasn’t automatically entitled to that life. Rich-background kids don’t have the right to have their entire life until the day they die paid for by their parents, even if their parents are / were outrageously wealthy.

You can't just spoil your child until mid-adulthood (remember, Aaron died when she as 33!!!) and then snatch it all away.

It's the money manager's job to manage his client's money. It's not his job to teach them how to do his job. I mean sure some people like to learn, take responsibility and initiative upon themselves to learn but clearly Tori isn't that type. I'm sure she also assumed that her career was set for life, that she'd always make a lot of money because she had not concept of not having money and that there would always be someone there to manage it for her so she didn't need to bother.

She grew up with never having limits on money so she doesn't have any idea about what to do with budgets and limits. She probably had a credit card with no limit from Daddy when she was 12. I'm sure the driver would drop her and her friends off to go shopping and she just bought whatever she wanted. I can definitely picture her being that kind of spoiled rich kid who was never told no.

R145 because a daughter learns her spending habits from her mother. In that respect, I totally agree with the posts above: you don’t raise a daughter as a total useless spoiled princess and then suddenly at 35 find religion and start to teach them “the value of a dollar.” You pick a lane and stick with it. Parents lead by example especially the same sex parent and what does she see in her mother? A fucking parasite whose spending has always reached notoriously tacky levels of conspicuous consumption.

If daddy Spelling was really concerned about Toris spending habits then he should have set up a trust as many have already said. In fact , he should have set up one for Candy as well — although I guess even with the most obscene spending you can’t blow thru $800 mil.

Why she didn’t learn the same goldigging skills as her mother however is a mystery. She should have at least stayed married to the first husband.

As she spends money, it's leaving. Where's her money coming from to replace what she spends? Producing Broadway plays isn't going to put that kind of money back in the bank for her. You'd think she's probably down to her last few hundred million dollars. She never worked, Aaron always took care of her.

Unless she's just living off of the intrest. And why does she want to move at her age anyway? You'd think she'd want to be settled by now. I know I would if I was her age and I'm only in my early 30s.

Yes, as someone from an Architectural background, those building are actual garbage. That aside, many older people sell their houses when they get older and "simply" their lives by moving into smaller condos. She is just doing it on a grander scale. Plus I have spent a lot of time in those types of buildings with woman like that. You were not too far off the mark. They do enjoy terrorizing the staff. They love having someone valet park their car every day, someone to open the door, someone to bring all their packages into their unit and all them say "hello Ms. Spelling, pleasure to see you today" with a smile. You don't get that same kind of attention with a house staff. Plus you don't have to constantly hire and interview them. Living in a building like that is the simplest life possible if you have the money. You dont have to take care of a thing outside your unit. And usually you can call "one of the boys" if you need some kind of emergency fix. Some even have on staff engineers. And of course maintenance people, concierge and 24/7 security guards. The other building she was in called The Carlyle actually bragged in their marking brochures that all their security guards were "Israeli trained".

By the way, there really is not a lot of sharing, they can be very private. The last one I worked on had an elevator system that opened up straight into everyone's unit, no hallways. Almost like every had a private elevator. The only time you had to interact with someone was if you decided to exit through the main entrance to get your car waiting out front. I an pretty sure I read that Candy's current place at the Century even came with private pool area down at the base as a special perk of owning the penthouse. And in her case, totally private elevators.

At this point, there's really no other option, and time is marching on. Throw in the towel and just give Tori what she wants. It's ridiculous that Candy has been keeping up this petty bullshit for so many years.

Tori has proven she's devoted to Dean, either through stupidity, stubbornness or insecurity. If Candy gave her a blank check, it'd go right into his hands. The grandchildren are taken care of. Tori and Dean can fend for themselves. I'd kill to see the various loopholes in her will to make sure Dean can't get his hands on the money. Fast-forward, 15-20 years, Tori and Dean begging the kids for their trust funds.

Tori's best hope is for Dean to have an accident

Get the fuck over it Candy, you cant take it with you. He's entitled to half her net worth especially when you consider he had to bang your ugly daughter at least half a dozen times to give you ugly spawn.

r204 as has been stated many times if Candy set up a trust for Tori, Dean couldn't touch it. If they divorced, he would not be able to get a penny.

Fox News, I know, Gross, but a recap of the whole drama, including Tori admitting in 2008 that her money troubles started right after 90210 ended, before Aaron died and that she knew her inheritance was under a million.

Highlights: After "Beverly Hills, 90201" wrapped in 2000, her life of never having to worry about money or think twice about her expensive tastes began to take a toll.

"It's no mystery why I have money problems. I grew up rich beyond anyone's wildest 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. Even when my tastes aren't fancy, they're still costly. I moved houses to simplify my life, but lost almost a million dollars along the way,” she wrote in her 2013 book “Spelling It Like It Is.”

Despite her father’s wealth, Spelling says she refused to ask for his help when times got tough.

“That means, in my mind, [that] I was what everyone thought I was, taking money from my dad, the rich little girl that he paid for everything,” she told ABC News in 2008. “And I refused to be that. [I would] rather be bankrupt.”

In order to make ends meet, she began taking on a slew of bit parts in films like “Scary Movie 2” as well as made-for-TV movies such as “A Carol Christmas,” “Family Plan,” “Hush” and more.

Despite the relatively low sum left to her from her father's estate, Tori insists she had previously discussed the situation with him.

"It was a hard conversation to have with him. I didn't want him to think that I was asking him for the money, or even talking about something so morbid as when he would pass. But I thought it was a conversation I needed to have … for myself and for my brother," she said in the same 2008 interview. "We had lunch and he said, 'You're gonna be OK. I made sure. You're getting just under a million.'

"I think part of me, in the back of my head, maybe hoped it would be different? But I hated myself for hoping it would be different, because I didn't want to take advantage, I didn't want to be that girl who needed, or wanted, my dad's money."

when she was sued by American Express over failed payments amounting to roughly $38,000 in 2016, Candy told TMZ that she helps her daughter financially with necessities, but does not help her with extravagances.

“I’ve been helping her out. I’m paying all her bills now,” she told the outlet at the time. “Except I’m not paying extras like that. No, I’m not paying any back payments. Just for the house and the kids school and the food, that’s all.”

Why is anyone entitled to money simply because they fell out of the vagina of someone who has lots of it?

I would probably set up a trust fund for her because she obviously can't handle money well, but she doesn't deserve money simply because she exists.

by Anonymousreply 21005/22/2020

I think was their way of saying Americans don't make good guards and only people from Israeli know what real protection is like checking for bombs or terrorists. Which is still racist to say the are some how better. But then 75% of the people living in that building were incidentally Jewish.

I say if you wanted to do that austerity thing with your kids and you are that mega rich, 10 mill would have been a fair amount. It's enough to live a very nice life and never have to worry again. If you blow that then no one should feel sorry for you. And at the same time you are not giving them the family fortune.

by Anonymousreply 21405/22/2020

Perhaps that's a fair compromise R214.

by Anonymousreply 21505/22/2020

Let's put aside the whole issue of an inheritance and its "smallness" ($800K won't provide enough income to live on, but it's far more than 95% of us will ever inherit). Let's put aside the fact that she chose to go into acting and is pushing 50, therefore she is essentially without any potential to earn money going forward. AND she admittedly is a total spendthrift who never learned about being financially responsible and hady no desire to learn.

What's even more significant is that Tori married a complete wastrel and proceeded to have six (!) kids with him in quick succession. While living in the Los Angeles area, one of the most expensive places to live in the US! Just about anybody would be continually broke after making such incredibly poor life decisions.

Meanwhile, her brother had the same privileged childhood yet managed to become an actual adult who is capable of supporting himself and a family. Is Tori special needs?

By your thought process r216 Oprah came from nothing and is a smart billionaire so therefore all poor people could if they wanted be billionaires. The world doesn't work that way. People are wired differently even within a family. Are you exactly like all of your siblings?

by Anonymousreply 21805/23/2020

I would've left each kid at least $15 to $25 million in a trust fund. and I would've bought each kid home in a nice upper middle class neighborhood, and paid cash money for it. So therefore, it's paid for and they have nothing to worry about.

I would've done all of that just to make sure my children were permanently stabilized. They would've gotten more after their mother died. Anything else they wanted, they would've had to work for it. I think that would've been very generous to do for Tori and Randy. Therefore, their not getting the family fortune and they have plenty to live off of and no one is falling into poverty.

Sounds fair and reasonable to me.

It was Holmby Hills, and Tori has said herself that she was 17 when 'The Manor' was completed and therefore barely even lived there.

Yes, I know that R222,, but most people are not aware of Holmby Hills outside of those living in LA. What's your point, it's still one of the richest neighborhoods in all of LA. They were not living in a slum before the house was built.

So Candy sold her place for 80 million, this bitch buys it, flips it and makes a cool 120 Million. That just shows how much of a dump it was after Candy put he special doll inspired touches to it.

by Anonymousreply 22405/24/2020

She didn't "make" $120M on the sale. More like $120M minus $80M purchase price minus renovations minus carrying costs minus realtor fees. And keep in mind Candy sold that place at the absolute bottom of the market. To say that house was ever a "dump" is a bit of a stretch.

by Anonymousreply 22505/24/2020

Even if she spent 10 million to renevate, which would be a lot she still make a cool 30 million in just a few years.

by Anonymousreply 22605/24/2020

No, she would not make a cool $30 million in that scenario. She had to maintain that home for the seven years she owned. And pay utilities on that monstrosity. And property taxes. And pay a realtor commission on the full $120M sales price. That all comes out of her $40M capital gain. I'm honestly surprised she wasn't able to sell it for more...she bought it at the absolute bottom of the market and somehow only managed to eek out a 50% gain seven years later once the LA real estate market had bubbled way back up.

by Anonymousreply 22705/24/2020

So who owns the "Spelling Manor" now? Is it foriegn money?

Also I believe the property taxes on that place is over $1 million a year. If your buying a place like that, then your certainly not worried about the property taxes. Your most likely a billionaire or adjacent to it.

She obviously has had so many kids hoping that Candy would actually like one of them and leave money in her will since she can’t do anything with it when she’s gone.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Tori has a Candy voodoo doll.

by Anonymousreply 22905/24/2020

If Aaron Spelling was worth $500 million when he died, he could have left his kids $100 million each, kept in trust with monthly payments. That evil bitch Candy could survive on $300 million.

R229 its been reported that each of the grandkids has a 10 mil trust. I assume Toris kids trusts have about 1001 conditions to keep Dean away.

The simple truth is that barring an infusion of self esteem on Tori’s part, she and Dean are together until one of them dies.

He’s an aging father of six who seems incapable of making money. What woman would take him on for more than a night?

She’s an aging mother of five living off her desperate hustles and her mom’s generosity. What man would take her on except another lazy asshole after the Spelling money? At least Dean is a lazy asshole she KNOWS.

The same with her brother. And buy both of them homes too. I guess Candy was controlling everything.

True, R244. Even $300 million would have been more than enough compensation for Candy's decades of gold digging. Candy would have had a nervous breakdown if she had to survive on $800,000.

Atlanta would definitely be good for the kids. They need to get out of that toxic LA environment.

There's a reason most Movie Stars don't live in Los angels. But the east coast or even other states. LA can be a really toxic environment to grow up in. Tori might even be happier if she left LA. Her brother seems to be doing just fine in Oregon.

by Anonymousreply 25205/26/2020

She doesn't have to leave the state just to raise her kids, millions of people do just fine in California outside of Beverly Hills or surrounding rich entitled area. There are lots of nice areas where she could live like a queen and still have that small town feel for the kids. They just are not glamorous with expensive stores and places like Rodeo drive. Many of them are quite pretty and quite.
