Tori Spelling's Credit Card Problem

Never thought I'd have a blog title like that... But last night I was channel surfing and paused on 20/20's interview with Tori Spelling. I have no idea why, I kind of can't stand her, in the obtuse sort of way a person can be with a celebrity (as opposed to my mail lady who crunches up my netflixes in my mailbox, that dislike aint obtuse), and I never watched Beverly Hills 90210. Ok, I watched it occasionally, but not on the regular. But there I was, glued to the interview.

Why? Well, because I couldn't turn away from her money problems. Yes, Tori Spelling has/had a credit card problem. When asked why she almost filed for bankruptcy, she replied with a contained smile, I had a bad shopping problem. Like hundreds of thousands of dollars on credit cards kind of shopping problem. Her dad cut her off financially (minus the almost million dollar inheritance she poo-poohs), so after she left 90210 she had to go out and earn more money to pay off this several hundred thousand dollar credit card debt.

You know what? Well boo-hoo for you. I would love to just go on the Home Shopping Network and hawk wee chopping machines with 85 attachable blades in order to pay off my student loan. But noooo, I slung drinks in the East Village for too long. Sigh. And yet, it is an effort not to feel sorry for her...

I NEVER thought I'd see a Tori Spelling post here, but I like it! More celebrity gossip, please!

I suppose it's been embarrassing for her to move her standard of living down, but it's hard for me to feel sorry for her. I'm sure she still wears outfits that cost more than the whole of my wardrobe.

Well, she still has terrific hooters. That has got to be worth something.

I needed this post, piggybank!

you know of course that she paid top dollar for those hooters and just charged it, thus contributing to her credit card debt.

i aim to please ;) PBB
