Tori Spelling is representing a psychic phone line now: good career move?

Tori Spelling may have a little cash to waste on more useless items for her storage containers (you know she’s not going to pay off her debt), because she just signed a deal as a spokesperson for a psychic phone line. Tori is a great choice for this company, since she believes money will come when she pays someone else to tell her what she wants to hear. It worked in this case. Here’s more:

Well, this could potentially ease some of Tori Spelling’s reported money issues.

The 42-year-old actress has just been announced as Psychic Source’s new celebrity partner and spokesperson. Psychic Source has been offering psychic readings for over 25 years — either by phone or through online chat — charging $1 per minute.

“I’m so excited to have the amazing advisors at Psychic Source available to me when I need insights into what’s going on in my life, and I look forward to inspiring others to come along on this journey of self-discovery and spiritual growth with me!” Spelling says in a statement about her new gig.

As part of the partnership, Spelling plans to regularly share her experiences receiving guidance from advisors at Psychic Source with her fans.

“We know we will benefit not just from Ms. Spelling’s celebrity status and the community of fans who love and admire her, but also from her genuine appreciation of and experiences with gifted psychic advisors in her own life,” Maryanne Fiedler, Psychic Source Marketing Director, says in a statement.

The reality star has been open in the past about her use of psychics. “I explore new psychics the same way some people try out new restaurants,” Spelling admitted in her 2010 book, Uncharted terriTORI. “If there were a Zagat that reviewed psychics, I’d keep it on my bedside table for handy access!”

[From ET Online]

Tori has talked about psychics and mediums for years as if all that mumbo jumbo has somehow become legitimate from the time when seances and table rapping were staged as entertainment for rich people. They’re still falling for it. Also, I just want to say how disappointed I am in E! for their new “Hollywood Medium” show. Mediums prey on grieving people and they may sometimes give comforting advice, but their powers are not real and they don’t have a gift other than the ability to read people and get them to part with their money. Some people believe in it and others consider it harmless, but I don’t think E! should be giving these scam artists a platform. What’s worse is that the shows are edited so the mediums look more competent than they are.

This reminds me of the plot of Reality Bites, that 1994 Gen X film starring Winona Ryder and Ethan Hawke. Winona’s character spent all her money on psychic hotlines and had to earn enough to survive by using her dad’s gas card for cash. Tori could pull a stunt like that with Candy’s money. Tori could swipe Candy’s Neiman Marcus card, buy a bunch of designer crap and then resell it on eBay. Tori would probably just end up hoarding it though.

Here’s Tori’s Psychic Source commercial.

    lol, yeah GREAT career move.
    eyeroll

  2. Tiffany says:

    If the check clears, sure.

  3. Jess says:

    Mediums tell you what you want to hear. They’re fake. As for tori, she’s pathetic.

    • saltandpepper says:

      How do they know what you want to hear?

      • SKKC says:

        Because everyone wants to hear “Your dead mother says she loves you and wants you to be happy” or “love will come along if you’re patient” or “be bold in your career, and you will flourish”. It’s really not rocket science—but it IS fraud.

  4. Mia V. says:

    No psychic told her not to mess with her face?

  5. Bichon says:

    Probably only career move available.

    • crtb says:

      so sad when you sink so low that all is available is to promote Psychics. Maybe she can hook up with LaToya?

  6. HeySandy says:

    I don’t get why the fool doesn’t sell some of the stuff she is hoarding. It sounds like it costs her a lot to store. Girl needs help.

    • Wren says:

      Because she’s a hoarder. She really does need help but like all other problems, nobody can really help her until she’s ready to change.

      She’s just like the people on the hoarding TV show who collect random (to us) crap up to and past the point of damaging their lives. It’s just that her stuff is designer goods and home furnishings, which she keeps neatly in a warehouse. The mentality is the same, though. I bet some of those other hoarders would kill for a warehouse to keep their old pizza boxes, moldering dolls and crumpled newspapers.

  7. Cris says:

    Who told these celebrities that a side eye makes them more attractive? Now I’m seeing young women doing it on Facebook, along with the anus lips. It’s over Tori. Sit down with that loser husband of yours.

    • GingerCrunch says:

      “Anus lips”. Second time I’ve seen it here and it’s part of my repertoire as of today! Perfect. Hubs will probably be skeeved by it, but it really is spot on.

    What career?? I don’t even think Lifetime would take her right now. I guess her psychic friends just forgot to warn her about the dangers of hibachi.

  10. Bonnie says:

    Stop. Just fade away into oblivion. And take the Deaner with you…..

  11. Castor & Pollux says:

    Tori has fans who admire her!? I feel very sad for anyone who looks to Tori Spelling as a role model!

  12. MoonInMercury says:

    She needs a financial advisor, not a psychic advisor.

  13. H says:

    It worked for Dionne Warwick.

    Poor Tori. She once had a career, not a great one, but it certainly paid the bills. I mean Valerie Bertenelli made a career of Lifetime movies, why couldn’t Tori? She needs to lose that leech of a husband and maybe Mother will finally give her an inheritance.

    • GingerCrunch says:

      Right. I wonder what’s up with any inheritance? Will it go to the grandkids? Interesting to think about….

    • crtb says:

      It did not work for Dionne. I wish to remember her for fabulous voice and memorable songs.

    • Ankhel says:

      @H

      Tori Spelling never had any of the necessary prerequisites to be even a moderately successful actress. She doesn’t have talent, beauty or charisma. All she had was her producer father. He indulged her acting fantasies and gave her jobs and contacts. Once he died…

  14. Size Does Matter says:

    Tori, in your future I see…. bankruptcy.

    On the house.

  15. DEB says:

    Perhaps a better move than that hideous crimson lipstick. Awful!

  16. Neelyo says:

    What’s next, replacing Kate Gosselin as the spokesperson for Coupon Cabin?

  17. nicegirl says:

    I am not so sure about this move – why would I want to use a psychic Tori used/uses, when she could not even see the “adultery” she went through coming ahead of time? – duh. Or the Benihana incident? The wedding to her first husband fiasco ? The debt/financial losses? Or even something real, like, are her kids ok with all of their parents’ nonsense? Aren’t psychics supposed to warn clients of what is to come, in theory? I have never been to one, but I expect I’d want to know that kind of stuff if I were a consumer of the services of a psychic reader.

  18. NewWester says:

    Maybe some tabloid should go to a psychic to find “Emily Goodhand” and the real reason why Dean left “Chopped Canada”?

  19. grabbyhands says:

    At this point good or bad doesn’t really matter-it is pretty much the only move since she is “broke” and unwilling to change her lifestyle and by some miraculous turn, someone is still willing to pay her to do something.

    I’m just grateful she got this gig before they stooped to a “stolen” sex tape publicity grab.

  20. Holmes says:

    I wish she would do something different with her hair. That shade of blonde is much too harsh for her. It’s not flattering.

    • Kitten says:

      She was a red-head for a while on 90210 and it looked surprisingly great on her. Then again, that was more than 15 years ago….

  21. KBeth says:

    Tori will do anything for a buck. At least this psychic thing doesn’t exploit her children (presumably).
    I agree she needs psychological help to deal w/ her hoarding issues & a good financial planner.

  22. Josephine says:

    She’s hustling, and I can’t judge that at all. It does bother me that these psychic services seem like such a scam, but I can’t imagine that people will start flocking to them just because Tori is representing them.

  23. anne_000 says:

    Instead of psychics, she needs to go see psychologists.

  24. TreadStyle says:

    All I could say to that headline was, “wow.”

  25. maria says:

    I have had readings with psychic mediums. I was told things that the medium had no way of knowing about my situation . I believe there are genuinely psychic people out there. Just like any other profession some are better than others. I am speaking from my own personal experience .

    • Sam says:

      There are people out there who believe that psychics are a real thing, but that if you try to use “the gift” for profit, you lose it. They see it as a gift from God that allows you to help people who need it. But even presuming that can be true (and who knows?), charging people in crisis a dollar a minute for your “services” is really crappy. That’s my issue with that “Long Island Medium.” Allegedly, her rates are quite high and she has quite the waiting list. A lot of the people she sees are genuinely in crisis and grieving. If you really have this ability, shouldn’t it be shared without concerns about compensation? That’s what makes me skeptical of the whole thing. If it’s real, share it with those who need it – don’t try to get paid. Or at the least, take only what you need.

  26. benchwarmer says:

    What the what?! No Tori DON’T!!! I love Tori Spelling, I have to be one of her biggest fans. She can pretty much do no wrong in my eyes. I wish they would give her own show again. I’m fine watching her go to a psychic on a show but advertising for them and shilling their services rubs me the wrong way. I don’t believe in psychics except for entertainment so it just doesn’t feel right, it feels like people could get swindled and she’s supporting that bec. from what I understand of psychics it’s a bit shady.

  27. Kym says:

    Yes- because when I think of Tori Spelling, good career moves always comes to mind.
    Of course, the best career move was having A.Spelling for a dad :P

  28. vespernite says:

    Yeah I don’t understand why she can’t get a real acting gig. Seriously with her Hollywood clout she could produce and act in a ton of TV movies if she wanted to. There is something going on here with her mental ability to deal with reality. She is squandering her potential and making a mockery of her father’s legacy. She needs to get a grip.
