We first learned that Tori Spelling is broke over a year ago, and at first, the actress seemed to take actions that made sense for someone in dire financial circumstances.
She downgraded her home, filed for bankruptcy, and took part in the proudest of washed-up starlet traditions by shilling for a psychic hotline.
But it seems Tori was just going through the motions and pretending she knows what it means to be poor, because a lot of the stuff she did after that didn’t make a whole lot of sense – like getting pregnant with her fifth child.
Don’t get us wrong – people shouldn’t be forced to forgo having children simply because their struggling financially.
But maybe people who are 43, already have four kids, are constantly on the verge of divorce, and are struggling financially should hold off on the breeding for a while.
Anyway, the decision has been made, and Tori and Dean McDermott’s family is about to expand by one.
Which is something of a frightening thought, as they’re currently not even supporting their own kids.
Okay, in fairness Tori and Dean are providing for the four kids that live with them – but not Dean’s teenage son from his first marriage.
Page Six is reporting today that Dean’s ex, Mary Jo Eustace, is suing Dean for unpaid child support.
Eustace was said to be “livid” when she learned that the couple recently partied at a $40,000 baby shower (hosted by Tori’s mother, Candy Spelling), despite the fact that Dean hasn’t paid child support in over a year.
Now, it looks as though Dean’s deadbeat ways could have a criminal penalty.
Sources say Eustace is hoping to have McDermott charged with contempt of court for failing to comply with the judge’s previous order.
Needless to say, the McDermotts aren’t welcoming baby number five into the most stable of environments.
Insiders say the renewed interest in her personal life has given Tori hope for a career revival.
Someone should probably tell that that interest will peter out within about an hour of when she posts the baby’s first photo on Instagram.
