According to a source, the financial situation at the Spelling-McDermott household is even worse than Spelling has admitted. "American Express provided a loan to Tori out of a line of credit she had," the source says of her massive bill. "The loan was needed because Tori and Dean had no money coming in last summer. She was hospitalized with burns on her arms, and was in pain for months."
