Tori Spelling hasn't bought a purse in three years.
The 40-year-old actress - who has four children, Liam, six, Stella, five, Hattie, two, and Finn, 14 months, with her husband Dean McDermott - admits her money problems have got so bad that she hasn't been able to treat herself like she used to do when she was younger, but she's learned cash isn't the most important thing.
"I haven't bought a purse in three years. And it's fine. I look back on that girl who shopped at Gucci in my 20s and I can't even relate. I can't believe I thought it was important," she said, peaking to People magazine.
The former 'Beverly Hills 90210' star - who is currently renting a modest home in the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles - reportedly inherited $800,000 from her TV producer father, Aaron Spelling, who died in 2006, but she blames her childhood for her lack of money awareness. Writing in her new memoir, Spelling It Like It Is, she said, "It's no mystery why I have money problems. I grew up rich beyond anyone's dreams. I never knew anything else. Even when I try to embrace a simpler lifestyle I can't seem to let go of my expensive tastes. And then there's my shopping problem. I've bought ridiculous amounts of stuff for the kids, clothing, toys, crafts."
Upon the unveiling of Melissa McCarthy's ELLE cover - of which she shares newsstands with other covers featuring Reese Witherspoon and Penelope Cruz for the magazine's Women in Hollywood theme - fans were appalled to see the funny woman covered up in a coat. While thinner stars are styled in much less clothing, it seemed unfair to cover up a woman of a bigger size like McCarthy.
With that said, McCarthy broke her silence on the issue and revealed that sporting the coat was her choice after all: "What I found so bizarre is I picked the coat. I grabbed the coat. I covered up. I had a great black dress on but I thought, it comes out in November... I was so sick of summer. I live in Southern California. I was like, 'Give me a big coat to wear. Give the girl some cashmere!' I picked the coat. They were like, 'The dress is really great,' but I was like, 'Yeah, but look at this.'"

Julia Roberts has been sharing beauty tips with Taylor Swift.
The 45-year-old actress - who worked alongside the blonde beauty on 2010 comedy movie Valentine's Day - has urged the 23-year-old singer to take up yoga to help her maintain her stunning figure and keep a calm mentality. "Julia's sharing her beauty tips, urging Taylor to take good care of her skin and to try yoga to tone her body, calm her mind and help manage stress," a source said.
The bipolar antics of her rumored new beau Justin Bieber must have rubbed off on the TV star-turned-pop star, as she showed up to a MySpace event in Los Angeles in a hybrid of jeans and sweat pants. While I consistently admire her daring fashion risks, this particular look may have clashed just a bit too much - perhaps it would have been better for a more casual outing? Will her jean/sweat pant hybrids become a fashion fav, or is Miley just off the mark completely?

Keira Knightley had the "least pretentious wedding ever," according to Karl Lagerfeld.
The British actress married rocker James Righton in an intimate ceremony in the South of France last month, and Chanel's creative director felt the low-key nuptials were very tasteful. The 79-year-old designer spoke fondly of Keira - who is the face of Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle scent - saying she looked chic in a short Chanel dress with flat ballet pumps for her big day.
"She had the least pretentious wedding ever. The whole thing was relaxed. I think it's perfect. After all, they lived together for quite a time. It's not as if she is a young girl of 18 who sees the husband for the first time. She is not a country girl," he said.
He also discussed working with Keira, revealing she was easy to get along with on set in her recent role as Coco Chanel in a film focusing on the opening of the designer's first store in the French seaside town of Deauville: "Keira was genius, no? I work well with her. Very easy. Keira has zero problem in her way of behaving and she knows everybody."
+ Already the face of one of their fragrances, actress Amanda Seyfried was tapped for Givenchy's Fall/Winter ad campaign, which also features Carine Roitfeld (who styled the ads) and her daughter Julia.
+ Speaking of Givenchy, beneath her Riccardo Tisci dress, Jessica Chastain wore matching Spanx in order to avoid becoming another actress at the Cannes Film Festival to experience an embarrassing crotch flash.
+ Helping out brides who want to wed on a budget, Target has announced a wedding dress collection priced between $99.99-$129.99, featuring an array of styles and cuts for sizes 2 through 28. The retail giant will also offer bridesmaids dresses in their online store.
+ Having already been at the center of a sexual discrimination lawsuit in Tokyo, Prada is now being pressued by The High Commissioner for Human Rights at the U.N. to cease its egregious practices against female employees.
While the Billboard Music Awards are no Met Gala, one would hope that the celebrities would at least aspire to such style for the event. Judging from the various frocks that graced Billboard's blue carpet, however, the musically-inclined celebs failed to put much effort into this awards show. Whether it was the Las Vegas heat or some overextended stylists (between the Met Gala, Cannes, and this, who can blame them?), the fashion at the Billboard Music Awards fell short with a few good looks and way too many shine-inducing materials.
The Good: American Idol judge Nicki Minaj, known for her colorful and over-the-top costumes, scaled back her look by opting for a red number which made her cleavage take center stage and yet still managed to look classy.
Country pop singer Shania Twain showed up in a silver-white Pavoni by Mikael D gown looking like a modern-day Greek goddess.
Hayden Panettiere - who currently stars in the country music television drama Nashville - opted for black like many others in attendance, but her simple, sleek floor-length dress was the best of them all.

Eva Longoria suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction at the Cannes Film Festival. The Desperate Housewives star accidentally revealed much more than she bargained for while walking the red carpet at the Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indian) film screening on Saturday night.
Eva, who looked stunning in a pastel green gown complete with a plunging side-split, hitched up her dress to avoid the puddles, flashing much more than just her legs in the process - since she had decided to go commando. The 38-year-old actress appeared unaware of the incident and was happy to pose for the cameras in the rain.
She later enthused on her Twitter page, "My favorite red carpet of the whole year!"
Eva also shared a series of snaps of her fellow celebrity L'Oreal beauty ambassadors Jane Fonda, Cheryl Cole, Megan Gale and Doutzen Kroes, who all braved the bad weather for the annual film festival in the South of France.
+ Considering she has both the face and body for high fashion, it's no wonder that actress Rooney Mara has signed with Dior to lend her face to their Down Town fragrance campaign. Naturally, her face is so gorgeously distracting that it's barely apparent that the photo is an ad for a perfume.
+ Model Doutzen Kroes imitates Angelina Jolie's famous 2010 Oscar dress, showing off some serious leggage at the Cannes Film Festival in Atelier Versace (albeit, looking somewhat like a superhero).
+ Despite her doctor's orders to avoid tight-fitting shoes, a very pregnant Kim Kardashian was spotted desperately trying to squeeze into her Givenchy heels.
+ Harper's Bazaar features supermodel Christy Turlington on next month's cover, which notes that she's still fabulous at 44 - as if we still didn't need reminding since she turned 40.
Gwyneth Paltrow has praised the Met Ball.
Although the 40-year-old actress recently slammed the Costume Institute Gala, which took place at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art earlier this month, she wrote a gushing post about it in her lifestyle newsletter Goop.
"The Met Ball, at NYC's Metropolitan Museum of Art, is always the year's most elaborate display of incredible fashion and this year was no different. The theme was Punk: Chaos to Couture and when the house of Valentino's Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri asked me to join them, I was thrilled to see what they would create with my right fashion hand, Elizabeth Saltzman. We got all inspired in the goop office about punk making a comeback through subtle influence and thus, we asked one of my absolute favorite websites, the most excellently curated SSENSE, to show us how we could work it into our spring/summer wardrobes (sic)," she wrote.
