Tori Spelling shared a bra selfie that included the brand name of the lingerie. And as a result, Tori is getting a backlash from fans who feel that Spelling is exploiting their loyalty by shilling products such as bras and doing it in an underhanded way by trying to mask the profitable promo in a selfie, reported She Knows.
Clad in a black bra, Tori emphasized that the garment was comfortable and helped battle sagging boobs.
“Luv summer nights! Got the kids 2 bed & Loving my #Nightlift Finally a bra that is super comfortable & cute & fights the sag while U sleep!@good_nightlift www.nightlift.com.”
But to those who felt that Spelling was using Instagram as if it were an infomercial, that post was offensive, and the naysayers made their reasons clear for objecting in their posts.
“Seriously? Nice promo for a bra. How much $ you get for this?,” posted one angry follower of Tori.
“More endorsements…. now a bra pic to sell something? Someone grab a bucket of water this chick is THIRSTY,” commented another former Spelling fan.
And others said that by sharing that bra selfie with the name repeated twice, Tori was selling herself for cash.
“I think this is ridiculous. I am unfollowing simply because it seems she promotes everything. First yogurt, now night time bras??? Come on Tori, have a little self respect!!!” urged one ex-follower.
Others went even further, saying that if they saw Spelling promoting a product, that meant the company behind it was frantically trying to succeed.
“Her product endorsements are backfiring for me. I’m at the point now where I won’t buy anything [Tori is] pushing because I feel the company is desperate because the product can’t hold it’s own” [sic].
However, Spelling may have a future in a way that would give her even more visibility than those Instagram bra selfies, because she could have potential for a spot on the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, reported E! News.
Two vacant spots currently exist on RHOBH because Brandi Glanville is not returning to the cast full-time. In addition, Kim Richards is gone after her arrest and subsequent public problems.
But Tori with her Beverly Hills, 90210 co-star Jennie Garth just might be a dream team for the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills viewers.
In addition to Tori and Jennie, Kathy Hilton is being considered as an addition to RHOBH, as the Inquisitr reported.
The mother of Paris Hilton, Kathy gives the producers the chance to mix up the cast for higher ratings, said an insider.
