Has Tori Spelling developed feelings for BH90210 co-star Brian Austin Green after he publicly discussed their past hookup? That is what a magazine is now claiming. Gossip Cop, however, can debunk it.
According to OK!, Spelling is pining for Green following his recent admission that they had a fling while making the original Beverly Hills, 90120. A source tells the magazine the actress has “convinced herself Brian’s brought up their past affair for a reason. She’s suddenly flooding his phone with calls and texts, saying they should chat and get their kids together.” The alleged insider adds, “She’s always suffered from low self-esteem. Now Brian’s flirting has made her feel desired again.”
There are several layers of misinformation and misrepresentation in the tabloid’s piece. For starters, to say Green “brought up their past affair” is inaccurate. The actor admitted to the hookup on a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live, during which a caller asked if it ever happened. Green only confirmed he and Spelling hooked up back in the ’90s after host Andy Cohen told him the actress herself had already talked about it.
Additionally, much of the tabloid’s report seems to have been ripped from the latest episode of BH90210. The reboot features the cast of the original series playing fictionalized and exaggerated versions of themselves attempting to film a reboot of the original show. Spelling’s character begins to have feelings for Green’s character after they share an intimate scene in the show-within-the-show. This is a plot line for the characters, not the real actors.
Both Green and Spelling are married and committed to their respective spouses, Megan Fox and Dean McDermott. Just two weeks ago, Spelling shared a picture on Instagram of her husband performing stand-up comedy with a caption detailing how his humor was one of the reasons she fell in love with him. The only feelings involved here are the ones Spelling has for McDermott.
With the first season of the 90210 reboot wrapping up, the tabloids have targeted the former stars with plenty of gossip worthy of being plot points on the show. Last month, OK! falsely claimed Spelling and Jennie Garth were “fighting” over the casting of Denise Richards. And Woman’s Day came up with a phony story about Fox threatening to divorce Green after he confirmed the hookup with Spelling. It feels as if some of these tabloid writers missed their calling and should have put their talent for fiction into crafting scripts for TV shows such as BH90210.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
