"Dean was saying, 'We just got Finn out of diapers; I thought we were in the clear!'" Spelling laughed. "For the first time this year, they're all in school. So it's like, wow. We're basically starting over."

To make matters worse, the actress — who hasn't been in good health the last several months — was also slapped with a hefty tax lien back in July.
