Tori Spelling claimed she can afford to pay her bills during a live TV interview despite the fact that a bank is suing her for over $220K in unpaid bills, RadarOnline.com can report.
But the interview immediately turned awkward when host Rosanna Scotto asked Spelling if her TV character's financial woes mirror her real-life money problems.
"But Tori, it's got to hit a little close to home when they start talking about financial problems, right?" Scotto asked on live air.
"That was a choice that I made and we made together to put that in there because that's such speculation," Spelling responded. "Media loves to talk about it. so we were like, 'Oh, let's face them straight on and let's put them in there."
The interview then took a turn for the worse after Scotto simply asked if Spelling was able to pay her bills. As Radar readers know, Spelling is currently locked in a bitter lawsuit with a bank that claims the actress owes over $266,000.
"That's appropriate," the mother of five responded sarcastically.
Scotto then pushed once more.
"Am I able to pay my bills? Yeah, thank you. I am," Spelling responded, adding that she would write the controversial interview into the reboot.
As Radar readers know, City National Bank received a default judgment on May 22, 2017 in the amount of nearly $220,000 for Spelling's alleged unpaid bills. The bottom line number has ballooned to nearly $270,000 due to interest.
Garth was spotted nervously laughing off the interview as Spelling appeared disturbed. As the interview wrapped, Scotto apologized for questioning cash-strapped Spelling about her debt.
"I'm sorry if I offended you about asking about your finances," Scotto said. "It's just everywhere you know?"
"I have pretty thick skin," Spelling said.
City National Bank is currently demanding access to Spelling's paychecks as a result of the 90210 reboot to make sure the actress pays up before others get a cost of her earnings, Radar reported.
“Best Summer Weekend at @fairmontwhistlr,” Spelling captioned vacation photos at the time on Instagram. “What a fantastic place for families summer and winter! Was here 10 years ago during the winter season and had best time. Now, we were here during summer for the weekend with our now family of 7. What an incredible family and dog friendly resort. Amazing rooms, food, service, pool, and right at the base of the mountain. Can’t wait to return!”
