Art's imitating life on the upcoming Beverly Hills 90210 reboot. Ian Ziering just revealed to Us Weekly that co-star Tori Spelling's alter ego on the show will have too many kids and not enough money--just like in real life! "We are playing ourselves after meeting at a fan panel. Tori, who, in the TV series, is a mother of six children and is broke, in the series, inspires everybody to get the show back on,” Ziering explains about the reboot--which features the original 90210 cast playing heightened versions of themselves, rather than grown-up versions of their high-school characters. In real life, the 46-year-old Spelling shares five kids with second husband Dean McDermott; she's also a stepmom to McDermott's 20-year-old son from his first marriage, Jack. Adds the 55-year-old Ziering, "Tori’s story is so compelling, it convinces everyone to do it.” BH90210 premieres August 7 at 9 p.m. ET on FOX.
