Dean 'Terrified' Tori Will Break Down Again If 'Beverly Hills, 90210' Reboot Flops
Tori Spelling's husband Dean McDermott is terrified that she will have another meltdown if the reboot of her old show Beverly Hills, 90210 doesn't pan out, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
"She's put everything into selling this updated version of 90210, and Dean is worried," a source told RadarOnline.com.
RadarOnline.com told you first that another remake of the classic '90s teen soap is getting a green light with Spelling hoping it revives her career.
On Wednesday, Dec. 19, Spelling was seen with original cast members Jennie Garth, Jason Priestly, Ian Ziering, and Brian Austin Green getting coffee together after a pitch meeting.
Sources exclusively told RadarOnline.com that a new show is being pitched to several networks, but some originals aren't invited back to the high school reunion, including troublemaker Shannen Doherty.
Spelling, 45, hinted in March 2018 that a reboot was in very early stages of development at CBS TV Studios.
But a source told RadarOnline.com, "The reboot show is a hard sell right now. The cast is old and the time for reboots is different. Just because Roseanne did it doesn't mean it'll work for everything."
According to the source "selling it has been difficult. And they aren't filming, just shopping it. And it's not looking too good."
Her husband McDermott, 52, is concerned, the insider said, and rightly so, as in March 2018, cops were called to the couple's home twice in one week for well-being checks on Spelling. A source said she had panic attacks after a series of fights with her husband.
Also, right after Spelling and McDermott celebrated Thanksgiving at the Allegretto Vineyard Resort, the couple got into an explosive argument at home — and she kicked him out of their Los Angeles-area house, a source said.
They patched things up, but things are always tense between the two, RadarOnline.com insiders have said.
The source revealed that the actress-turned-reality-TV-star is now obsessing about her looks as the prospect of doing a scripted show again looms.
"Top down, Tori was told she needed a softer look so she's been losing weight and has done a lot of work on her face including fillers," the insider explained.
"The original cast is not aging well, and Tori has always been criticized for her nose and in general not looking her best."
McDermott, the father of Spelling's five kids, "thinks she is putting all her eggs in one basket and if it crumbles, and it very well might, she could melt down again."
The source pointed out, "Tori has spiraled before publicly and because she is banking on this show. It's causing Dean concern."
Plus, there could be more drama in their home as it's been reported that Spelling and Garth would be playing "exaggerated versions of themselves."
Beverly Hills 90210 originally ran from 1990-2000 on Fox. A rebooted 90210 series on the CW network, with other, younger actors starring, aired for five seasons and ended in 2013.
