Tori Spelling backs out of 90210

Tori Spelling will not be returning to her old zip code after all.

Tori says goodbye before helloIt seems the daughter of the man who created the show in the first place felt she would not be paid as much as her former 90210veterans for their return, so she hit the road.

Of course, the Olympics are going on. There's disturbing reports about Russia's attack on Georgia. And yes, the presidential election is in full swing but honestly, we're bumming that Tori backed out of 90210!

Can't believe she's gone

We are so not kidding.

Here's the scoop: she got wind that her $10,000 to $20,000 paycheck per episode was mere peanuts compared to her co-stars Jennie Garth and Shannen Doherty. Reports have the figure actually at more than double (almost $35,000). Yes...that's each episode.

Could you really blame her? After all, her dad was the brains behind the entire show.

Kudos, Tori!
