RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal Tori Spelling’s diva demands for the Beverly Hills 90210 reboot got so bad, writers decided it was better to walk away from the project than deal with the temperamental actress.

According to an insider, the premise of the new BH90210 was to show the original cast’s stars grappling with making a reboot.

However, “Tori didn’t want to portray her real life, which is being broke and on the D-list,” said the insider, who explained Spelling, 46, instead "wanted to live in a big mansion in Beverly Hills and show the life she envisioned her character would be leading — a life much more glamorous and wealthy than her real life.”

She then dug in her heels and refused to budge.

“Tori didn’t want to portray the real broke Tori Spelling," revealed the insider.

In an effort to accommodate her, Dean McDermott was cut from the show — but the move wasn’t enough for Spelling.

“Tori only wanted to portray Donna Martin as a super wealthy Beverly Hills socialite who lives in a mansion and leads a fairytale lifestyle," repeated the source.

Eventually, the reboot’s original team of writers had enough and decided it was easier to quit.

Said the source: “The script now is being written by writers who are taking direction from Tori and the cast and it has been a s**t show on set trying to make it work.”
