In BH90210, that mockumentary about the real-life lives of The Peach Pitters, Tori Spelling is playing a mom of six who needs the show to help with her family’s financial crisis. Tori and Dean McDermott have owed lots and lots of money to different banks over the years and even accumulated $20,000 in overdraft fees alone. In fact, Tori and Dean are such champions of finances that they made the prestigious list of California’s top tax delinquents. So when Tori went on Good Day New York she should of been expecting some sort questions about her finances (as it’s part of her real life and the show she’s promoting) but Tori stopped that quicker than Dean stops a child support check.
According to Us Weekly:
Awkward! Tori Spelling was forced to address her rumored financial struggles after host Rosanna Scotto insisted on discussing the topic on Good New York
After Scotto continued to push the subject — asking Spelling if she afford to pay her bills — the sTORI Telling author awkwardly laughed before she clapped back.
“Am I able to pay my bills? Yeah, thank you. I am,” Spelling quipped, nodding her head.
The reporter then suggested that BH90210 will help put some money in Spelling’s “pocket,” which Garth called an “interesting” remark.
After the two costars looked at each other in disbelief, the True Tori alum suggested the two women write the awkward moment into season 2 of BH90210.
The interview continued in all its uncomfortable glory, but the real hate came later on Good Day New York‘s Facebook after-show, when the host, Rosanna Scotto, claimed that she “knows too much” and has seen a text about Tori not having money to pay for food.
After the journalist claimed she “apologized,” she took another shot at Spelling’s finances.
“The bottom line was maybe we know too much. We know she recently sent a text to somebody saying she didn’t money to pay for her kids for food,” Scotto alleged. “What she thought by coming on a station on Fox — the show’s gonna air tomorrow night — that it should be women supporting women. … When we went to a clip of the show. She’s like, ‘I didn’t expect this from somebody from Fox.’”
Saying Tori couldn’t afford to pay for her kids’ food, because you saw it in a private text feels a bit much. Tori may be a wreck who married a bigger wreck, but saying she can’t feed her kids feels extra messy, especially since we all know she can and shamelessly gets #ad money for it. Rosanna Scotto seems like she’s mastered The Real Housewives non-apology and I imagine her next apology being something like, “I’m sorry if your feelings were hurt because you can’t pay for your kid’s food,” all while sitting next to Candy Spelling’s will attorney and Dean’s side piece.
