American actress Tori Spelling came under fire from fans after she announced a new business venture, in which she would charge people $95 for a virtual meet-and-greet.


There may be a lockdown because of the coronavirus pandemic rocking the United States and many other parts of the world, but Tori Spelling is not letting that stop her from making more money.

The actress is starting a new venture to make more money for herself, even in this quarantine period. The 46-year-old announced a virtual meet-and-greet for 20 lucky fans on Thursday.

However, each fan would have to pay $95 to enjoy the benefits of the meet-and-greet with the "Beverly Hills 90210" star. Many fans immediately criticized the move by Tori.

Most of them felt she was insensitive to the present situation and financial struggles faced by many people, especially with the lockdown crippling activities nationwide. A disgruntled Mike Sington wrote:


"Tori Spelling wants to do a virtual chat with all you housebound people, but she'll charge you $95 to do it."


Continuing, Mike mocked the actress, saying that there is a pandemic, with many people isolated, and even dying, while Tori, who he tagged as a D-list celebrity, was figuring out how to make money off the situation.

Accompanying the tweet was a picture of Tori's meet-and-greet announcement, which had her picture, as well as the date and time it would hold, via "Looped."

These problems have seen Tori sued twice by American Express for failing to pay back her balances.


The features of the meet-and-greet include virtual selfies with Tori while a fan chats with her, and the ability of a fan to download a copy of the video call with the actress afterward.

A few more disgruntled fans responded to Tori's virtual meet-and-greet announcement, with one fan telling the actress that while others were doing free concerts, she was charging for a virtual meet-and-greet.


It is somewhat not surprising to find Tori Spelling doing all that she can to earn a few more dollars in this period, given that she and her husband, Dean McDermott, have been in serious financial problems for so long.

These problems had seen Tori sued twice by American Express for failing to pay back her balances, while she and McDermott were also sued by City National Bank in 2017 when they defaulted on their loan payment.

Tori opened up on her financial struggles in her sixth book, "Spelling It Like It Is," where she revealed that it all started after her reality series was canceled, and also due to poor decision making on real estate.

Tori and McDermott are parents to five children, namely, Liam, 13, Stella, 11, Hattie, 8, 7-year-old Finn, and 3-year-old Beau.
