As Beverly Hills, 90210's Donna Martin, Tori Spelling was the nicest resident of her mean-girl zip code. The actress says she got along fine with her castmates during the series -- but a decade after the show's final episode, Spelling claims they've all, essentially, formed an "I Hate Tori" club. What could have caused the rift between the graduates of fictional West Beverly High? The reality star believes it all began with her marriage to second husband Dean McDermott.
"All my cast members hate me," Spelling, 37, told Ryan Seacrest on his Monday radio show. "People say, 'Do you mean during 90210?' I say, 'No, we were great friends during 90210.' We were friends after 90210. They all came to my first wedding. All of a sudden I marry Dean, and I don't know what happened. I lost all my cast members."
Tori and Dean may seem like a picture-perfect couple on Oxygen's Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood, but their marriage began as a scandal: the actors were both married to other people when they fell in love on the set of the TV movie Mind Over Murder in 2005. (Side note: what is it about working on TV movies that makes people leave their spouses?) When the affair began, Spelling had only been married to first husband Charlie Shanian for one year, while McDermott had just adopted a baby with his wife of 12 years, Mary Jo Eustace. The paramours' timing was rotten, to say the least. And it's probably no coincidence that tensions between Tori and mom Candy Spelling reportedly escalated when she got together with McDermott. But was it seriously enough to make her longtime friends abandon her?
As proof of the rift, Spelling has pointed out that she wasn't invited to Ian Ziering's wedding -- which was attended by 90210 pals Jason Priestley, Brian Austin Green and Jennie Garth. (Ziering, Garth and Priestley were guests at Spelling's first wedding, though TV boyfriend Green was not.) Spelling also told Seacrest that new mom Tiffani Thiessen "doesn't talk to me anymore." She does say, however, that she's still friendly with 90210 BFF Jennie Garth. And Spelling admits that the fallout from her controversial second marriage may be in her head: "It's my perception, and nonetheless, it's a fun story."
If you're interested in hearing more dirt about Spelling's castmates, her new (third!) memoir, uncharted terriTORI, is now in stores.
