Tori Spelling Wants To Charge Fans Money For A Virtual One On One Chat With Her
Tori Spelling has reached a new low with her latest money making scheme. The mum of five is promoting a virtual meet and greet for 20 lucky fans with one catch, it’s going to cost them.
The Beverly Hills 90210 star is asking for $153 from fans wishing to have a one on one chat with her. Included in the price is a copy of the video chat as well as opportunities to take ‘virtual selfies.’ Basically that means taking a screenshot on your phone or computer.
As expected, the tone deaf venture has been met with criticism online, with many saying that while others are offering free online courses and concerts during a time of global self isolation, here is a D-list celebrity wanting to charge for a FaceTime call!

One annoyed follower wrote: “Of course it’s $95 because during a Pandemic we all have that to spare what a bummer …”
Another said: “People are doing free concerts and you are charging? How about you do a lottery and do random pics for the winners!!! Please!”
“Damn people are dying, and you still think how to gain money from us…what you were and what you became …” another commented.
It’s no secret that Tori Spelling, daughter of late TV mogul Aaron Spelling and husband Dean McDermott have been battling financial issues for years.
She has been sued twice by American Express for failing to pay back balances of $61,000 and $142,000. In 2017, the couple were sued by City National Bank for failing to make monthly payments on a loan.
The family have always been hustling and even appeared on a series of reality TV shows together with their kids Liam, 13, Stella, 11, Hattie, 8, Finn, 7, and Beau, 3.
Tori, 46 hinted at why she’s struggling financially in her sixth book, Spelling It Like It Is where she admitted that problems began after the cancellation of her reality series as well as a series of terrible real estate decisions.
“As my real estate obsession persists, it’s starting to look more compulsive,” Spelling writes in the book. “Moving is expensive,” she notes, “and I’ve put us in a precarious financial situation.”
