Well, the reunion of the original cast on the new Beverly Hills 90210 just got less exciting. Exactly 1 less exciting, to be specific.
It seems OG Tori Spelling bailed on the new CW series, an "edgy, contemporary spin-off" of the '90s hit, before even filming the pilot once she heard that former co-stars Jennie Garth and Shannen Doherty were getting paid more than her. A lot more.
It seems Tori was hired to reprise her role as fashion boutique owner Donna Martin for "$10,000-$20,000," but discovered that Garth and Doherty were signed for "$35,000-$50,000" per show. When she found out, Spelling demanded equal pay, but the network refused and she bailed. Why should she play second (or third, actually) to those b*tches?!?!
And she may have a point.
Like, what the hell have Garth and Doherty done lately? But Spelling is the star of a her own hit reality show (well, Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood is a hit by Oxygen Network standards) and best-selling author, dammit!
"We'll see what happens later in the season," Spelling said last week in an interview.
Hmmm….me smells a Sweeps Week cameo….
The new Beverly Hills 90210 premieres with a 2-hour special on September 2nd.
