Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott have signed on for a second season of their controversial reality show True Tori, but took a big pay cut in doing so.
According to reports, the two stars were forced to accept a major salary reduction to get the show on air, and don't use the term "major" loosely.
Dean, who put the couple's marriage under the microscope by doing Emily Goodhand in a Toronto hotel, will now be doing the show he spawned for free!
"Lifetime was still interested in another season of the show,” an insider said. “However, Tori had to be willing to take a pay cut, a big one, and she did.”
“The pay cut was significant ... Tori is making only $50,000 to do Season 2. And Dean isn’t making a dime. Tori made sure his contract specified that.”
Ouch. The meager ratings brought in by the show gave the network plenty of leverage, with Tori's years of financial problems garnering no sympathy.
