Kelly Rutherford had been fighting with her ex-husband Daniel Giersch over custody of their two kids, 10-year-old Hermes and 7-year-old Helena, for almost 10 years. That dramatic saga ended a little over a year ago, when a judge awarded Daniel full custody. Kelly also had some money woes. Things aren’t great in that department either.
Tori Spelling is currently pregnant with her and Dean McDermott’s fifth child. Tori loves free shit and she loves to waste her mom’s money, so Candy Spelling threw her a huge, expensive baby shower on February 11th at the Bel Air Hotel. A source tells The Daily Mail that Candy dropped $40,000 on the baby shower, money that probably would have been better spent paying off one of Tori and The Deaner’s many debts. Or paying off Dean’s ex-wife Mary Jo Eustace.
Sources tell Page Six that Mary Jo was “livid” after she learned about the $40,000 baby shower. So livid she needed to zen-out in nature days after it happened, apparently.
Letting his mother-in-law throw a $40,000 baby shower might not have been the smoothest move; Dean reportedly owes Mary Jo thousands of dollars in unpaid child support for their 18-year-old son Jack. Mary Jo is taking The Deaner to court in Los Angeles next month.
Candy Spelling just spent $40,000 on Tori and The Deaner, and so I’m sure he’s going to hit her up for his latest child-related hand out. I bet he’s writing the email right now.
“Yo, whats’s up Candy Cane? Listen, The Deaner needs a financial favor from his favorite sugar grandmama. Turns out Daddy’s been a little greasy in the child support department. I figured since you’re already footing the bill for my other ones, you might help me out with the first one I made. If only The Deaner could get paid for making kids, amiright? PS – throw in a couple extra bucks for me? Taco Bell has this new fried chicken chalupa that I just can’t get enough of!”
Shortly after the film Mortdecai stunk up movie theaters in 2015, there was talk that it shook Johnny Depp so much that he was strongly considering firing his longtime agent Tracey Jacobs. Johnny was allegedly sick of all the box office bombs, and he wanted a fresh start with some new representation. Johnny did eventually fire Tracey after 28 years and left United Talent Agency for CAA in October 2016. Neither Johnny nor UTA gave a reason for why he decided to switch; UTA simply wished him well and good luck in his future endeavors. Well, Page Six seems to think they’ve gotten to the bottom of the mystery of why Johnny left Tracey and UTA.
Almost all famous people have a pre-fame story about how they were so broke before their big break that they had to eat ramen-style flour paste strips seasoned with the salt from their tears for every meal. Chrissy Metz, aka Kate from This Is Us, knows the struggle of being a broke actor all too well.
Chrissy told Glamour magazine about her bank account woes during a recent interview. Chrissy says she grew up sans-money in Florida, which is living life on expert level. Once she got to Los Angeles, she lived with five other girls in a two-bedroom apartment in Burbank. Eventually she landed a role on American Horror Story: Freak Show, but she didn’t get any work for a year afterwards. By the time she booked This Is Us, Chrissy claims she had a mere 81 cents in her bank account. My bank account just scoffed “So? Get back to me when you try to use your card on a single Timbit and it gets declined.”
But don’t cry for Chrissy. She’s got that NBC cash now. Plus This Is Us just got renewed for a second and third season, which means she’s also got that sweet, sweet job security.
Thankfully for Chrissy, she lived in Burbank. There’s a giant IKEA in Burbank (and about to be an even bigger one), and that place can come in real handy when your wallet is light. Chrissy’s 81 cents would truly go far there. She could get her a nutritious IKEA hotdog and a water cup that she could sneakily fill up with lingonberry soda when no one is looking.
If Lindsay Lohan didn’t scrub her Instagram page clean and was still posting it, I would say that we should all prepare to see pics from her “mystery trip” in the Middle East, because her mom’s got serious, serious bills to pay and Dina Lohan can’t pay them herself. Are you crazy? When White Oprah even thinks of the word “job,” she breaks out into invisible hives and the only cure is a refreshing Long Island Iced tea from T.G.I. Friday’s.
Way back in January it was reported that semi-professional broke person Tori Spelling was in possession of a $37,981.97 Amex bill that Candy Spelling definitely wasn’t going to pay. Tori sent them a check for $1,070, which of course bounced. The deadbeat department at AmEx clearly got tired of waiting for a payment. E! News says that on August 11, a judge ordered a default judgement against Tori and demanded she pay Amex.
