“4th day here and I’m missing my kiddos so much,” Spelling, 50, wrote via Instagram Story on Sunday, August 20. “Grateful and so proud of my strong, brave, resident and kind to the core children who remain positive no matter what comes my way.”
The Beverly Hills, 90210 alum also uploaded a photo of herself in the hospital bed as she got an IV in her arm. According to Spelling’s hospital bracelet, she was admitted on Thursday, August 17.
While Spelling has not shared the nature of her illness, she and her five children — Liam, 16, Stella, 14, Hattie, 11, Finn, 10, and Beau, 6, whom she shares with husband Dean McDermott — were hospitalized earlier this summer after a mold infestation in their home.
“Here we are again at Urgent Care. We’ve all been on this continual spiral of sickness for months. Sick. Get better. To get sick again,” Spelling wrote via Instagram in May, sharing hospital photos of Hattie, Finn and Beau. “Used to think, ‘Well that’s what happens when you have young kids in school. They just continually bring sicknesses home.’ But, when it gets to the point where they are at home sick more than being in school we had to reassess what was going on. Kids will be kids but when you have your youngest (10 and 6) so sick they are sleeping all day and say they feel dizzy even standing I knew something bigger was going on.”
Spelling and McDermott, 56, went on to hire a mold inspector, who found that their property had “extreme mold” damage. The brood immediately planned to evacuate their home.
“Our troubles are next-level with our MOLD problem and the house that’s been slowly killing us for 3 years,” Spelling wrote via her Instagram Story on May 17, noting they were seeking an attorney to help their cause. “My kids and [I] are so sick and can’t get well and our family needs help. [I’m] overwhelmed.”
After evacuating their residence, Spelling and her kids made headlines after they were spotted staying in a budget RV. Multiple sources exclusively told Us Weekly earlier this month that the Spelling-McDermott crew had not moved into the motorhome full-time.
“Tori is trying to have a summer vacation with her kids on a budget that works for her,” one source told Us. “Tori knows she’s going to get attention with her downgraded glamour vacation, but it’s also realistically all she can afford at the moment.”
A second insider further explained that Spelling has been dealing with “financial difficulties,” noting that she and McDermott have not set a healthy budget in “a long time” and “spend money like they’ll never run out of it.”
