Growing up, Tori Spelling assumed she would inherit a large portion of her mega-producer father Aaron Spelling’s sizeable five hundred million dollar estate, but life didn’t wind up working out that way. The actress and her mother Candy feuded for many years, and when her dad ultimately passed away in 2006, she only received $800,000. In the years since, she’s apparently blown through all of that money, plus her considerable celebrity-related earnings, and now, she’s not above talking about.

Speaking to People Magazine, the starlet admitted she, husband Dean McDermott and their four children are going through a bit of a rough patch right now because they’re in between reality shows, and she has never been able to completely curb the extravagant taste she learned from her parents growing up. For example: she’s been able to keep herself from buying a purse for the last three years, but in that same time she’s purchased a “ridiculous amount of stuff” for the kids including clothing, toys and crafts.

Spelling was born in the luxurious Los Angeles neighborhood of Holmby Hills and attended the prestigious Harvard-Westlake Private School as a teenager. As a young actress, she appeared on almost three hundred episodes of Beverly Hills, 90210, which was produced by her father. Unfortunately, when the show ended in 2000, she was never able to find the same level of success and recently, has starred in a series of reality shows related to her relationship with Dean and their growing family.

Content with the family they have now, Dean would like to undergo a vasectomy, but he and Tori were apparently told by a financial manager that it wasn’t a very good fiscal decision. So, they called it off and will now wait, hope things improve and ideally, wrap it up when they have sex. With a new reality show on the horizon and a pilot for ABC Family, there’s a good chance the purse strings will loosen enough for him to get his procedure. Hopefully, all involved take something away from their recent experiences, however, and vow to make far wiser decisions with their money.
