UPDATE (October 25, 2013):
Tori Spelling’s hubby Dean McDermott is firing back at reports that the couple are too broke to afford a vasectomy. “Could we afford a vasectomy? Probably,” he tells Us Weekly. He adds that though the last few months have been “a tougher time for us financially” that’s just “the nature of this business.”
Now the couple are looking forward to several upcoming projects including Dean’s new gig as host of Chopped Canada and the spring 2014 release of his first cookbook, The Gourmet Dad.
“Sometimes things are awesome, sometimes they’re just not,” he adds, “but it’s about how we tackle things as a couple, as a family. And we do a pretty good job of that.”
Family before fortune. We like it, Dean.
ORIGINAL STORY (October 24, 2013):
Tori Spelling may have grown up in the lap of luxury, but without the benefit of her famous father’s millions to help her out, the actress and her family have fallen on hard times.
Tori, who married fellow actor Dean McDermott in 2006 after starting an affair with him on the set of Lifetime movie Mind Over Murder while both stars were still married to other people, is now living in dire straits with her hubby and their four children, thanks to a significant career slowdown for both parties.
“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,” says Tori.
One thing that was quickly snipped from their budget? A vasectomy for Dean.
The couple decided that son Finn would be their last child after Tori developed complications during the pregnancy, although the couple doesn’t have the cash to get Dean a vasectomy in the near future.
They’ve also traded down from their sprawling Encino pad to a rental in the Valley, paid for, in part, by whatever remains of the reported $800,000 inheritance Tori received following her father’s death in 2006.
The couple do have a possible light at the end of the tunnel, however: they’re hoping their latest reality project, Tori & Dean: Cabin Fever, will get picked up by a network for the upcoming season.
