Tori Spelling hasn’t had the best year.
A few months ago, she and her husband, Dean McDermott, were the center of a cheating scandal. Now, she’s opening up about another issue their dealing with behind closed doors – financial distress.
According to E! News, the former 90210 star is opening up about her family’s money woes on the latest episode of True Tori.
For those who don’t know, the 41-year-old actress’ starring role on ABC Family’s Mystery Girls was cut short due to the show’s abrupt cancellation after only one season.
During a clip of the upcoming episode, she revealed she’s “overwhelmed” with all of the issues they’re currently facing. “I’m overwhelmed with life. Sorry. I just feel responsible,” she said while sobbing.
“I feel so responsible for so many people and I can’t do it. I can’t handle the responsibility of having to take care of so many people financially, the fear of that. It doesn’t matter. know people look at me and they’re like, ‘Oh, poor you.’ Like, ‘Boohoo, you have so many problems.'”
Although McDermott tried to comfort his wife, she was inconsolable. The Stori Telling author revealed she and her husband are no different from lots of Americans living paycheck to paycheck. She also explained why they are over exceeded.
“We live paycheck to paycheck!” she yelled. “After this I have no f–king idea if work’s going to come in. Like, how am I going to support my family in six months?” She continued, “Look at the life we’re leading. We’re paying for five f–king private schools.”
McDermott offered his wife a suggestion, but to no avail. “Baby, we can change our lifestyle. We can get rid of all that stuff,” he suggested.
“But why should we have to?” she asked. Although she reportedly inherited $800,000 after her father’s death, apparently, it’s still not enough to accommodate their lifestyle.
“My dad wouldn’t have wanted this. He’d be so mad. He worked so friggin’ hard so his kids wouldn’t have to f—king struggle. I don’t want to change our lifestyle. That’s why I work so hard. I don’t want to change.”
The second season of True Tori premieres tonight at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
