Celebrity Dirty Laundry has reported that “True Tori” ratings are so low that its host network, Lifetime, might pull the plug on the show soon. Though the first season premiered to 1.8 million viewers in April of this year, the docuseries' following has continually dwindled since. The first episode of the second season opened to 766,000 viewers.
Amelie Gillette of AV club wrote in her review, “Many celebrities tell the public they want to keep their personal lives personal. Tori Spelling might be the first celebrity who the public begs to keep her personal life personal.”
The docuseries revolves around the life of Tori Spelling, daughter of television producer Aaron Spelling. Her father ran his own company and produced hit TV shows like “7th Heaven”, “Beverly Hills 90210” and “Charmed.”
Tori notably appeared as a cast member in teen series “Beverly Hills 90210,” which made her a household name in the ‘90s. Her father left behind a fortune of $600 million when he died in 2006. However, he left Tori no more than $600,000 in his will.
Tori's recent troubles, which have been documented by the media, have done little to attract viewers to her reality show. The reality star was recently rushed to the hospital following a coughing fit. She was quarantined out of concern that she might have Ebola, but she was diagnosed with bronchitis.
Her husband Dead McDermott, who also appears on the show, admitted to having a fling with Emily Goodhand during their marriage. Tori and McDermott were both married to other people when they started seeing each other. However, the two have been accused of fabricating the affair to gain traction for a reality show.
McDermott quit social media, following the slump in the show's ratings and expressed weariness at being in the public eye. He tweeted “I'm done with this social media shit. To all my fans, you're the best. Love you guys. Always will. To all the haters, you know how I feel.”
