Although Tori Spelling originally said she was backing out of the 90210v2.0 to focus on being a mom, it turns out she’s just pissed about her paycheck.
Sources are reporting that Tori dropped out of the show after learning that Shannen Doherty and Jennie Garth were making between $40,000 and $50,000 per episode, while Tori was getting less than $20,000 per episode. She asked to be paid on-par with Shannen and Jennie, and was denied, so she quit.
Look, as much as I dislike everything about Tori Spelling, I’m not sure why, from a business standpoint, she’s not worth as much as Jennie and Shannen. I mean, if they brought back Gabrielle Carteris, sure, they could pay her $20 an episode and it would be fine. She doesn’t need that much money; she’s probably eligible for a senior citizen discount at most places by now. But Tori, as odious as she is, does have her own television show and stuff. I’m not sure why she wasn’t offered parity.
