Tori Spelling of Beverly Hills 90210 fame was reportedly hospitalized over Valentine’s weekend according to Daily Mail. Spelling, who has been open about her struggle with chronic migraines, suffered pain so intense that Tori required hospitalization for pain management.
Tori Spelling has struggled to find steady work since the cancellation of Beverly Hills 90210. In 2014 Tori reunited with former 90210 co-star Jennie Garth for an original comedy entitled Mystery Girls. The show was cancelled after 10 episodes due to poor ratings and critical reviews. At the same time, Spelling was trying to recover from the devastating revelation that her husband Dean McDermott had an extramarital affair. Spelling and McDermott put their personal struggles on television as they attempted to save their marriage.
Tori is no stranger to the hospital, having gone in three times last year for various reasons according to MSN. In fact, Spelling’s Lifetime docuseries True Tori featured an episode in which the 90210 alum was unable to get a migraine under control due to the tremendous amount of personal stress she was suffering. While Dean tried to work through addiction and depression issues, Tori attempted to sort through her own personal demons.
Tori Spelling is the daughter of one of Hollywood’s most notable producers, Aaron Spelling. While Aaron Spelling was a huge financial success, at the time of his death, the bulk of his estate was left to his wife Candy Spelling. According to People, Tori received only $800,000 of Aaron’s estimated $500 million estate. Tori’s relationship with her mother has been strained since the passing of Aaron.
Spelling’s woes continued in 2015. In April, Tori fell at a Benihana, landing on the grill. Spelling reportedly received second and third degree burns on her arm that required skin grafts. Tori sued the Benihana for medical expenses and lost wages in September. But Tori’s problems didn’t end there.
In January of this year, Spelling got some news that she was being sued herself. According to People, American Express is seeking legal action against Tori for a nearly $38,000 credit card bill. Spelling, who has repeatedly suffered from money trouble, has moved seven times in the past five years, and her mother, Candy Spelling, told People that she is now paying Tori’s day-to-day living expenses.
“I’m paying all her bills now. I’m not paying extras like that (regarding Tori’s American Express bill), I’m not paying any back payments,” Candy said. “Just for the house and the kids’ school and the food.”
In fact, things have gotten so tight for Tori and husband Dean that McDermott, who is the father to Tori’s four children and has a fifth child with his first wife, had to forgo a vasectomy for now. McDermott, who had been the host of Chopped Canada, has also struggled to find work in the entertainment industry. A recent tweet from Tori indicates the couple will be appearing on The Cooking Channel.

Despite their occasional reality television appearances, however, Tori and Dean struggle to make ends meet without steady work. The couple has reportedly backed off the extravagant birthday parties for their children and recently downsized to a smaller home. After growing up in the Spelling manor, a more than 50,000-square-foot mansion, it is undoubtedly a difficult transition for Tori to have to learn not to live in excess, but Spelling has been forthcoming about the reality of her situation.
“We’re in the entertainment business, and things change year to year,” Spelling recently told People. “We don’t have a series on the air right now, so we have to be more restrictive of what we can spend, just like anyone who doesn’t currently have a steady job.”
