Stories of really rich people who can’t live within their means fascinate me. I also enjoy stories of lottery winners who blow it all or average people who amass fortunes with miserly living. Tori Spelling, of course, grew up in the biggest house in LA County with a massively wealthy family, inherited less than a million and then had to hustle with books and reality shows, forcing her to downsize to a level that would still be extravagant to most people. Only she never quite was able to downsize or stop spending.
It came out during her True Tori reality show in 2014 that Tori had an actual warehouse full of stuff which cost “a mortgage payment” to store monthly. Given the amount of crap her mother collected in her enormous house, that’s not surprising. She also revealed that she’d spent about $18 million in the then eight years she’d been married to Dean. Now things are getting somewhat desperate for Tori, apparently. She’s been sued by Amex for nonpayment of nearly $38,000. Her last payment to the credit card company was sent last June and it bounced:
Tori Spelling’s deep in the hole with American Express, so much so … it’s filed a lawsuit to get back the dough.
AMEX says Tori’s statement balance was $37,981.97 … since last summer, and she’s failed to make a single payment since then.
According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, she attempted to make a payment on June 26 last year … in the amount of $1,070, but it bounced.
I didn’t watch Tori’s show, but I saw the reality show featuring her mom moving house and she had an enormous collection of just about everything you can imagine: dolls, furniture, luggage, craft supplies. Tori learned to spend and collect things from her mother, not that it’s a valid excuse for her behavior as an adult woman, but we know where it comes from.
Tori and Dean were at an event recently, where Dean gushed about her, claimed he was checking his wife out, and called her “hot.” He also said that he was really grateful to Tori for their four children and their life together while Tori claimed that their relationship has had a “rebirth.” Dean is a cheating cheater but he knows which side his bread is buttered on. Even if the butter is running out Tori can go selling their personal lives again so she can buy more sh*t for the warehouse. I wonder what story or angle they’ll shill next. We haven’t heard yet if she got a payout from Benihana for falling on one of their grills.
Oh and The Daily Mail reports that this dress Tori is wearing retails for over $500. I wonder how much she paid for that horrible lipstick which is inexplicably popular lately.
