Tori Spelling hopes to reinvent herself as Martha Stewart 2.0 if it means a bigger paycheck

One kid, let alone five, can be expensive, and the bills are starting to add up for Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott. According to Page Six, in order to make ends meet, Spelling has reportedly already sold a reality show about their life with half a dozen kids (McDermott has a son from his previous marriage.)

All those kids plus a reality crew will make for quite a crowded house, but Spelling is doing what she can to combat money troubles. In January, American Express sued her for nearly $38,000 thanks to an overdue balance. Page Six says Spelling also has plans to use her new show to demonstrate her crafting prowess in order to launch a new spinoff career as a Martha Stewart-type domestic entrepreneur. “She’s hoping that if she can brand herself as a Martha-like figure, that can be a way to make some real money going forward,” a source told Page Six.

Good luck to Tori — sounds like she’s got a lot on her plate. Maybe if the crafting thing doesn’t work out, she can pull a Beyoncé/Carrie Underwood/Kate Hudson and pursue an athleisure line instead.
