Actress TORI SPELLING has pulled out of the forthcoming BEVERLY HILLS, 90210 spin-off amid rumors of a salary row.
The star has reportedly walked away from the revamped TV show after discovering she is to be paid $10,000 to $20,000 (GBP5,000 to GBP10,000) per episode – less than half the figure former co-stars Jennie Garth and Shannen Doherty are picking up to reprise their roles.
Spelling’s representative has confirmed the actress’ decision, telling Usmagazine.com, “At this time, there are no plans for Tori to appear in the 90210 spin-off.”
The move comes just two months after bosses at U.S. TV network CW announced Spelling would return as Donna Martin – now the owner of one of the coolest stores in Beverly Hills. The actress took the part, stating, “I am excited about it. In some way, every show that followed 90210 was a remake of 90210. For the fans’ sake, I am really happy for them.”
