When one of the wealthiest men in TV, Aaron Spelling, passed away in 2007, he left his only daughter, Tori, a mere $800,000 inheritance. This week the “not so attractive” actress hit the tabloids announcing her new book, Spelling It Like It Is. In it she spills her guts about how she, her husband and their 5 kids are just scraping by. The poor thing hasn’t even bought a new purse in 3 years.
Are you kidding me? Are we supposed to believe that she and her husband are that stupid and irresponsible that, as she wrote, they can’t even afford to surgically avoid having more kids permanently? That’s a little more than I really want to know or care about. And whatever happened to privacy between spouses and the rest of the world?
When someone is born into a famous family, it seems a little easier to get their foot into the door, especially if they are pursuing their future in the same business as their famous family. If Tory wasn’t her father’s daughter, do you honestly think she would have been an actress, started a jewelry business, had a reality show or even gotten interviews for books? She writes, “Even when I try to embrace a simpler lifestyle, I can’t seem to let go of my expensive tastes.”
