The 90210 spinoff hasn’t even started airing yet, but sources confirmed to E that Tori Spelling has pulled out of her deal with The CW.
According to insiders, Tori asked for a rate hike after she learned that Jennie Garth and Shannen Doherty were making $40,000-50,000 per episode, whereas she was making less than $20,000 (granted, Donna Martin was a much more minor character, and Tori’s star hasn’t shined quite as brightly as either of theirs after the fact either). Because the network denied this request, she’s backed out altogether.
The show’s rep at the CW says: “The CW has no deal with Tori Spelling to appear on 90210 at this time.”
And Tori’s rep says the same: “At this point there are no plans for Tori to appear on the 90210 spinoff.”
There is still some time for the two sides to come together on the issue, however.
