Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott consider downsizing to 8.5k/month house

Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott are house hunting. Last week they were seen looking at an open house in Calabasas, presumably for sale, and at a rental home in Tarzana about twenty minutes away. (Radar reports it like it’s the same house, but it looks different in the photos and they list it in another location.) Tori and Dean’s money issues run so deep that their assets were seized by the federal government and they’ve been sued by multiple creditors. Plus Dean owes over six figures in back child support. Tori has made it clear that she loves big homes, she grew up in the biggest home in LA County after all, and why should she change? So they’re looking for a home with enough bedrooms for all five of their kids. Radar Online points out that the rental home they toured, which costs $8,500, is actually $2,000 a month cheaper than the massive home they’re renting now. I guess Tori’s mom pays for it. Candy has said she pays all Tori’s bills.

If I could afford to rent a house for $5,000 a month, even with a partner, I would consider myself rich and massively successful. It feels luxurious to me to rent a house in my small town considering some of the roach-infested apartments I’ve had where you can hear neighbors walking upstairs. If I was in a city or a more affluent area I would be in an apartment again and there’s no shame in that. There is shame in living like Tori and Dean when you owe hundreds of thousands to creditors and have had years to get your sh-t together. They just feel entitled to this lifestyle. I guess Tori has the 90210 reboot coming up so she’s spending that paycheck already. Maybe she thinks it’s ok since she’s saving money if they move. I can’t imagine considering an $8,500 a month 3,500 square foot home with a pool and three bedrooms “downsizing” but grifters are going to grift.

Note that I have considered whether Radar is totally wrong about this house as it looks like a different house than the one they were photographed outside. If that’s the case, they were still touring a house for sale like they’re going to buy one.

    They both have karma face, so there’s that.

    • Erinn says:

      It’s a small consolation, isn’t it? I hate to say that I don’t dislike the purple dress, though.

      I’m just going to sit over here with my peasant $650/month mortgage that includes property taxes haha.

    • MoxyLady says:

      I genuinely don’t understand why Candi doesn’t buy a house and let them live there instead of all this renting mess. Also why tori doesn’t sell her 100+ storage units omg.

      • MoxyLady says:

        Candi should buy a house. Invite some crap show – inside edition or whatever – to tour the home so you can see it’s nice and kept up etc. Then tell tori and family that they can live there and only there. No more moving / renting whatever. House is in candy’s name. Passes to trust for the kids. They can treat it like shit if they want but it’s all they have and are going to get.

      • jjva says:

        Right? Candy should buy them a tract house in Bismarck and be like, go for it. Have fun.

      • Yes Doubtful says:

        Candi paying for more things won’t solve the problem. She already pays for the kids’ education. These two need to get a job, file for bankruptcy and live within their means. I understand Tori grew up in the lap of luxury, but she’s in her 40′s now and daddy has been dead quite a while. It’s no longer an excuse.

  2. Veronica S. says:

    Anyone who uses the term “downsizing” to refer to a home that costs more than four digits a month should just automatically be slapped by anybody standing nearby.

    Also, for somebody who cakes it on daily, you’d think Tori could fight the right foundation shade for her skin!

    • Celebitchy says:

      She never said that it was in Radar’s article. I will take the quotes off the title so it’s not misleading.

    • Jadedone says:

      I live in Toronto where one bedroom basement apartments rent for $1500 a month, so sadly for us downsizing would still require more than four digits a month. Sighhhh

      • Veronica S. says:

        Yeah, I should specify that I get real estate is getting pricier every year and moreso in metropolitan areas, but the vast majority of us are smart enough not to be paying $8.5K for a home monthly if we can’t afford it. That person paying $1,500 for an apartment in Toronto probably isn’t hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt and utilizing social capital to cop out of paying it off.

    • sequinedheart says:

      Sadly in CA, it’s not uncommon for a very ordinary home to rent out for 3-4k a month. So, without defending these dumbwads who should move to a cheaper location and *omg* GET REAL JOBS, 8500 a month isn’t really that excessive in SoCal. Don’t get me wrong, I live here and that shite is waaay beyond my means but it’s not close to the top end of anything around here.

      • Veronica S. says:

        I thought about that after I posted that comment (realistically, most people are paying around a grand a month at the least for a decent home now), but in her case, I think it stands. She doesn’t have regular income flow and has massive amounts of debt. They could easily move somewhere far less expensive and put that money to better use, but she doesn’t want to give up the lifestyle.

  3. Franny Days says:

    Yikes. I feel bad for all those kiddos.

  4. meh says:

    sorry not sorry that 1st pic shows how wonky her chest is. yikes!

    • whatWHAT? says:

      yeah, I’m really surprised that she hasn’t “downsized” her implants.

      not only are they too big for her, they look like they haven’t been “maintained”. I know she likes that bod she (used to) have, super skinny with giant breasts, but she doesn’t have that body anymore and the implants need a touch up.

      • iconoclast59 says:

        Her implants have never looked good; she’s always had a weird gap in the middle. Do they pay the patients who go on “Botched”? She’d be a perfect candidate for a boob fix!

  5. Lisa says:

    Yikes. I feel for the kids.

  6. Bryn says:

    I can’t imagine having that much credit card debt, I don’t think I’d be able to go about daily life comfortably at all. I’ve had 700 on my MasterCard since Christmas, I’ve felt guilty ever since. Paid it off in full yesterday, slept so good last night lol

    • Spicecake38 says:

      Good for you I’m working on mine!

    • whybother says:

      That is because you are a responsible adult, not a grifter
      We know that amount not only will increase but it gonna hurt our credit in the future
      them grifters only think about woe is me, I had to downsize~ *cleans up chanel store*

  7. KBeth says:

    They are such moochers.
    8500 a month on rent that they don’t have?? I don’t even earn that much in a month….

    • Good GRrrrrl says:

      I understand how wealth normalizes rampant spending. My husbands 1st x wife has a 5k/mo rental & restaurants every meal. Supposedly there is debt there, but she can’t stop. It’s her normal.

    • billypilgrim says:

      Eggactly! With all their debt why would anyone rent to them?

      They’ve had major debt for years, why hasn’t the law come after the possum looking chief and his wonky implanted and gift wrap storage unit wife?!

  8. Sarah says:

    Tori looks like she got her boob job with a Groupon…I’ll never understand why she didn’t get the problem corrected or the implants removed. Truly one of the worst plastic surgery fails I’ve ever seen. 😣

    • whatWHAT? says:

      I’m pretty sure she hasn’t had anything done to them since she got her original implants back during 90210.

      I’ve also heard that you need to have periodic touch ups and/or maintenance done, which it appears obvious she hasn’t. most likely because she can’t afford it and it’s not something her mom would pony up for. that is to say, I’d bet her mother would pay to have them removed, but not for a switch to a smaller size, or for any boob lift or something similar.

      • Veronica S. says:

        My friend had hers done and was told she should be getting them redone every decade or so to maintain the integrity of the implant. How somebody so vain didn’t put some of the debt into maintaining such an obvious surgical procedure is beyond me.

      • Allie says:

        Tori’s implants were recalled over 10 years ago but she never had them removed like she was supposed to. That’s why they look so weird.

  9. RBC says:

    Maybe they could afford their current house if Tori got rid of the dozen or more storage lockers she has. The amount she pays per month on all those lockers must equal a mortgage payment on a good size home. Tori needs to contact Hoarders

    • Allie says:

      If I recall correctly, per their trashy reality show they had a few years ago, Tori spends $6,000 a month on those storage units.

  10. Q T Hush says:

    The couple don’t even pretend anymore about the mooching off Tori’s mom. Why not pay a mortgage each month with $8,500.00.
    Those children always look disheveled and less than happy. Hope they do great things once out of mom and dad’s clutches. Go kiddos!!

  11. lucy2 says:

    I assume Candy pays for that as well? If I were her, the only thing I’d say to them is “Get a job.”

  12. Rianic says:

    I pay $1,400 a month mortgage for a 3500 sq ft house in one of the larger Southern US cities. Since neither of them is working, maybe they should move somewhere cheaper?

  13. Mia4s says:

    $8500 a month? Gee, thoughts and prayers go out to them. 🙄

    I hope at least some of his back child support has been paid. Otherwise his ass should be in jail! Sadly Candy probably coughed up some of that too after a sob story to “think of the children!” These two are beyond pathetic.

  14. Nancypants says:

    Housing in California is horribly expensive. San Fran? Forget about it.
    I really think a lot of long time Californians inherited their homes.
    Grandpa bought it in the ’30s and handed it down and mom or dad handed it down and so on.

    I live in Colorado. It’s expensive but not California expensive and the pay here can be pretty good.
    Still, if I had gotten my way, I’d be living in N.Carolina or somewhere cheaper and warmer.
    Years ago – and still true some today – is that a lot of Californians sold dumps in CA and moved here because we had the jobs and their jobs were gone and they bought mini-mansions without regard to the cost of water (it’s an alpine desert), heat (brrrr) AC (desert) and such and as a result, my county once had the highest foreclosure rate in the Country.
    They just walked away after stripping the homes AND many left their pets behind.

    Anyway, I don’t think Tori and mooch will leave CA based on, “But this is where I can get work!” and Grandma might be pissed if the grandkids are moved away and might stop paying the bills and because most Californians really aren’t happy living anywhere else.

    For example, “OMG! It’s cold! I hate snow! You don’t have In-and-Out Burger? You can’t buy wine at the grocery store? Where is Trader Joe’s? Well, in CALIFORNIA…” That sh*t.
    We hear it all the time.

    They aren’t going anywhere.

  15. Pandy says:

    Money issues aside – Tori looks great in these pix!!

    • Astrid says:

      no way she looks great. A totally plastic fake person reaching into Joker territory

    • enike says:

      Pandy, that was my first tought exactly
      she looks really good (for Tori standard)
      I thought maybe she is getting ready for her new role or something

      she looks really different in a good way

  16. ms says:

    Money absolutely ruins people. She is so detached from how real people live and seems to have a psychological issue with overspending (and water is wet, duh).
