After surviving an overbearing mother who makes Bree Van de Camp look relaxed. An endless string of embarrassing Halloween costumes [who remembers the classic mermaid outfit from season one?]. Not to mention almost not being allowed to graduate high school after getting drunk on half a glass of champagne, you’d think television’s longest standing almost virgin could catch a break.
But unfortunately, life doesn’t always play out, well like our favorite zip code. Expecially after news got out this morning that original BEVERLY HILLS 90210 star Tori Spelling just receive the Hollywood equivalent of a Ray Pruit smackdown. Well, not literally. Because lord knows Donna Martin suffered enough at the hands of her one-hit wonder abusive boyfriend [Bonus points if you know the name of the one-hit song]. But I digress.
According to Deadline Hollywood Daily and later confirmed by E! Online’s Kristin, Tori Spelling has opted out of appearing in the CW’s highly anticipated 90210 re-boot upon discovering that co-stars Jennie Garth and Shannen Doherty were commanding upwards of $30,000 more per episode guest stint than her.
To wit, this TV Addict has three words he never [ever] thought he’d utter —”You Go Girl!”
Not only is her reality TV show TORI & DEAN HOME SWEET HOLLYWOOD currently Oxygen’s number one rated show. Spelling’s a best selling author [sTORI Telling] and a tabloid mainstay thanks to her sordid personal life. In other words, the artist formerly known as Donna Martin is arguably a bigger star than both Shannen and Jennie combined. And thus, deserves far more than the insulting offer the CW bean counters have put on the table.
“Equal Pay for Equal Play” may not be quite as catchy as “Donna Martin Graduate.” But on short notice, it’s the best slogan this TV Addict could come with. Who’s with me?
