"Omg! Insider" co-anchor Thea Andrews sat down with the reality TV star, and Tori cleared up what is real versus what is rumor. While she said, "No" when asked about being broke, she did admit, "I was saying I've made bad choices, just because I'm an actor, just because I'm on TV doesn't mean that I don't make financial choices that aren't good."
"They were really bad ones," the mom of five said.
The 40-year-old also admitted that those bad choices were ultimately what led to her having to ask her mother, Candy Spelling, for financial help.
"That was really hard," she said. "It was difficult at the time to go to her and say, 'Can I have help with this?' And I told the story because halfway through I was like, 'You know what, Mom, I just want to have lunch with you, forget it, I'm gonna do it myself, and I did."
Candy has an estimated net worth of about $600 million and recently sold her Holmby Hills home, which was also the highest-priced home in the U.S., to a British heiress for $85 million. She was left $500 million by her late husband, Aaron Spelling, when he passed away in 2006, leaving Tori to inherit $800,000 from his fortune.
Tori and Candy have had a complicated relationship over the years, having a falling-out after Aaron passed away in the mid-2000's, and again in 2009 after Candy wrote an open letter on TMZ.com titled "Middle-Aged Reality Show Stars (Like My Daughter)." The mother and daughter have since reconciled and seem to be in a much better place.
