Story highlights Spelling said she’s spending “all of her time trying to cut spending and not having fun”
The actress and entrepreneur’s Hollywood extravagances and spending habits have been well documented
From Spelling using a gender-determined condom to filling in five bottles of wine for less than $30, we’ve heard all about actress and reality TV star Tori Spelling’s incredible spending habits over the years, but her recently publicized financial situation is a new low.
After opening up about financial troubles on her new lifestyle blog, Spelling Spelling, in a recent interview with New You Magazine, Spelling explained her battles with children and marriage this year.
“My husband is sleeping in another room, and I’m in the marriage counseling,” she said. “I have a lot going on right now and my finances are definitely a big thing for me. I spend all of my time trying to cut spending and not having fun.”
Since their seventh child was born in June, Spelling has been incredibly busy. She also gave birth to her youngest child in October 2018.
She revealed that she has been in financial trouble for years, and her bank account is depleted, too. The star has been holding on to a credit card that her mother gave her as a gift as a child, but she hasn’t used it in over 10 years. Spelling is also trying to cut out all debt for the sake of her children.
She describes her life in Hollywood as being defined by its excesses and finds it exhausting.
“I have bills that I can’t pay and don’t know when I’ll have money to pay them, so I’m just making it through until I can get out of debt,” she said.
But since her lifestyle in Hollywood has been riddled with luxurious ways to live, it is not a surprise that her lifestyle in real life is suffering.
Despite her financial troubles, Spelling was a judge at her friend’s charity’s annual charity gala last weekend, which is an annual event for designer apparel for a great cause. Spelling wore a gown by Virginia Lullaby, her stylist shared on Instagram.
Another in her long list of extravagant things is a gender-determined condom that she got as a present to herself. Her designer friends fashioned it to match her husband’s ring. She told People magazine that she bought it “as a birthday gift” for herself. Not only does it be just as beautiful on her, but it’s also a present that she gets every year.
And once the annual holiday season comes around, Spelling doesn’t plan on cutting back on her spending. She said she always gets a thank you card in the mail when she gives gifts.
“I always get [a thank you card] and I’ll use it,” she said. “It’s the holiday season and you want to always give presents, so why not?”
It’s too soon to tell how this all shakes out for Spelling. Hopefully, she manages to right the ship and get her financial matters under control. And as for those sky-high standards that she’s held for herself and others in Hollywood, those can change, too. For now, read the full article from New You Magazine to learn more about Spelling’s rumored financial issues.
