Jennie Garth: Ian Ziering's "Trainwreck" Insult "Really Hurt" Tori Spelling
Kelly is like so totally mad at Steve for hurting Donna's feelings. While promoting her ABC Family series Mystery Girls on HuffPost Live, Jennie Garth revealed how costar Tori Spelling felt when Ian Ziering called her brutally honest True Tori reality series a "trainwreck."
"On one hand, he does love Tori in the way we all love each other and the bond that we all share. It was a little harsh—just the words 'How do you not watch a trainwreck?'" Garth, 42, explained on Thursday, July 24.
"I know that that really hurt Tori—because people can take that in a very wrong way. But her reality show wasn't for everyone," she continued. "And for me, it was hard to watch just because I love her so much. It was so hard for me to see that kind of position she was in."
Spelling's former Beverly Hills, 90210 costar Ziering made the comment during an appearance on HuffPost Live in May. "It's tough and I love Tori. I sent her an email that I don't know what's going on but that I feel for her. Tori's a smart girl," the 50-year-old actor said at the time. "I don't pity her. She knows what she's doing. Most of us have all been in relationships and you go through all the ups and downs. Hers just happens to be televised."
He also voiced his concern to Access Hollywood co-hosts Billy Bush and Kit Hoover last month. "I've seen clips...it's not appointment television for me," he said. "I'm just a witness and a bystander, like we all are. It's like, why is this even happening? It just seems as [if] there is nothing sacred."
Spelling, 41, filmed her marriage woes with husband Dean McDermott following his cheating scandal, until its season finale on May 27. Earlier this month, Spelling said at the Television Critics Association L.A. press tour that their relationship was still "a work in progress" but they were "committed to being a family."
