Jennie Garth 'bummed' that Tori Spelling won’t appear on '90210'

For those Beverly Hills, 90210 fans out there who were crushed by recent online reports that Tori Spelling will not be appearing on The CW’s new 90210 reboot this fall, take heart — Jennie Garth feels your pain. The star, who will reprise her role as Kelly Taylor on 90210 this fall, tells that she was disappointed by online reports that Spelling dropped out of The CW series after not being offered the same amount of money as Garth and fellow former co-star Shannen Doherty. “[The press thinks] we’re at war over salary with Tori. I didn’t know I was at war with Tori,” Garth told “I’m really bummed because I love Tori and I was psyched Tori was going to be on the show. I think she should definitely get paid as much as either of us is getting paid. Her father created the show. It just seems wrong if that’s the case. I don’t know what really happened because I haven’t talked to her. I would like to talk to her.” Doherty adds that she isn’t taking the report about Spelling’s salary dispute — which claimed Garth and Doherty were being paid “$35,000-$50,000” per episode versus Spelling’s proposed salary of “$10,000-$20,000” per episode — at face value. “They didn’t even get the numbers right,” says the actress, who will reprise her role as Brenda Walsh on The CW’s drama, “so I don’t know if it’s about the money either.” Whatever the case, Garth hopes the door isn’t closed on Donna Martin’s return: “I’ll try to butt my head in whenever I can and tell people what I think about it.” When asked for a comment about Spelling’s discussions with the network, a CW spokesman said simply, “The CW has no deal with Tori Spelling to appear on 90210 at this time.” (Reporting by Jessica Shaw)

    Gotta love Shannen “They didn’t even get the numbers right”. LOL. Glad she’s returning. She’s the shot of drama that this bland looking soap needs.

  • Shari

    Jennie is right. Tori’s father created the 90210 franchise and its insulting that she wouldn’t be offered the same amount of money.

  • Ozzie Al Thor

    It’s only insulting until you realize that Tori cannot, has not and will probably never be able to do something very important for a TV show:
    “Act”. After you take that into account, then even offering her $10,000 an episode is kinda silly.

  • Kris

    Whether her father created the show or not is irrelevant – that does not entitle Tori to anything at all. The show will offer her what they feel she is worth to the show. Judging from the acting she put into the first 90210, I think offering her less would be more than fair.

  • itsonyou

    the truth its probably just the cw trying to get press before the premiere, the show is only weeks away, they are playing you for fools with this fake drama

  • Anonymous

    Tori should be given more or less the same amount of money. It would be nice to have the 3 girls back on show..

  • pop-off!

    no body cares if tori or jennie is on the show, tori needs all the work she can get, she is a joke. people are going to watch for shannon,

  • Kalli

    Let’s face it, Jennie and Shannon are way better actresses than Tori which is probably why they low balled her. But on the flip side, she stayed with the show and everyone loved Donna Martin! I think she should be paid equal based on her history with the show.

  • Kalli

    Hmmm, On second thought…Shannon/Brenda was always a drama queen…always entertaining. She should be paid the most! :)

  • Sofie

    Am I the only one who fast-forwarded thru all of the Donna & David scenes?

  • Till

    This show became interesting to watch the minute Shannen Doherty came up. All other “stars” from the original are needless (Donna… ah ah ah!)

  • Eric

    We MUST have scenes featuring the show’s two biggest drama queens: Shannon Doherty and Jessica Walter!! MAKE THIS HAPPEN, CW!
    Shannon’s now a director, Jessica is the “fading film star”….a match made in drama heaven!

  • Ari
