AceShowbiz - "BH90210" premiered on Wednesday, August 7 on FOX, and viewers were offered with the cast members hilariously poking fun at themselves on the highly-anticipated TV reboot of "Beverly Hills 90210". Tori Spelling, who starred on the show alongside fellow West Beverly High gang members, was seen mocking her own financial woes with her storyline.
On the series, the 46-year-old actress is playing a fictionalized version of herself. She's depicted to be married to a TV host named Nate (played by Ivan Sergei) and they share six kids together. Her character is struggling financially after her reality show, "Tori & Nate: Spelling the Beans" has just been canceled as the network thinks that Tori has already "milked [her] brand from every angle."
"All these bills! $842 for Mommy & Me yoga?” she complains. “Great, now I can't do that anymore. Namaste here!"
"Just when I think things are slowing down, boom, I fall on a hibachi," she deadpans, referencing her real life accident at Benihana. The accident left her with second and third-degree burns.
Tori is also seen ranting about her money issue to co-star Jennie Garth. When Tori insists on posting photos of themselves on Instagram during a flight to the Las Vegas "90210" reunion convention, Jennie says her pal is "out of [her] mind." To which, Tori responds, "What I'm out of is money!"
"Stuff just keeps happening to me!" she continues telling Jennie. "I need that paycheck. Mama's got six kids! Do you know how much college bribery money I'm going to need?" she says. "At least this reunion is going to cover our bills for a month!"
At one point in the episode, Tori is complaining about why the stars don't receive any commission from show merchandise sales at the reunion. "No wonder I can't pay my rent!" she exclaims.
Tori and real-life husband Dean McDermott are having money issues in the past few years. The pair are currently facing legal issue after City National Bank filed a lawsuit against them for allegedly failing to pay back a $400,000 loan.
"BH90210" airs on Wednesdays at 9 P.M. on FOX.
