Uh oh, Tori Spelling got in pandemic trouble again. But don’t worry, this time it’s not racist (I think). In a now deleted Instagram post, Tori advertised a virtual meet and greet for 20 fans scheduled for tomorrow. The lucky fans could take virtual selfies (screenshots), and download a copy of the video call afterwards (screen record)! But all that complicated technology comes with a price… $95 to be exact. Yep, she wanted fans to pay almost a hundred dollars for an online conversation.
I know, shocking stuff. Tori thinking she has fans. And because we’re in a Pandemic ft. Financial Crisis, and most of us are broker than Tori and Dean after a trip to Barneys back in the day, people were pissed.

One annoyed follower wrote: “Of course it’s $95 because during a Pandemic we all have that to spare what a bummer…”
Another commented: “People are doing free concerts and you are charging? How about you do a lottery and do random pics for the winners!!! Please!”
While another archly noted: “Damn people are dying, and you still think how to gain money from us…what you were and what you became…”
Um, hello! Tori knows there’s a pandemic. You think an already broke and unemployed bitch wouldn’t notice she was making even less money than normal? Which is what Dean more or less said when he took to Instagram to defend his perfect wife:
I know, I couldn’t bring myself to press play either. Here are some highlights, via E! News:
The 53-year-old celebrity claimed the 46-year-old actress was approached by a company to do the meet and greet and that the idea was to provide some entertainment, levity, fun, humor and love to fans who are social distancing.
“But no! Instead, because it’s Tori Spelling, she gets dragged and she gets the haters coming down on her for simply doing something to entertain people, but more importantly, to provide for her family,” McDermott continued. “What is wrong with that? What is wrong with providing for your family at this time? All the studios, everything is shut down. She has no way to work like everybody else. She has no job to go to.”
Yep, Dean, everybody else is still working. It’s just Tori who doesn’t have a job. He went on to say:
“Why not drag people who are making millions of dollars doing this? And how do you know…she’s not giving part of this to charity?”
HA! Tori Spelling! Giving! To charity! That’s a good one, Dean. Thanks for giving us a laugh during these difficult times.
