In the next few years, Spelling, who inherited just under $1 million after her father's death in 2006, took just about any television job that would help her pay the bills. She launched her own jewelry line, and in 2007, along with her second husband, Dean McDermott, she launched a reality show called "Tori and Dean: Inn Love" that also featured the couple's son, Liam. The show returned for four seasons and introduced the couple's daughter, Stella.
In 2008, Spelling's memoir, "sTORI Telling," debuted at the top of the New York Times Best Seller list and was named the best celebrity autobiography of 2009. In the book, Spelling detailed her contentious relationship with her mother. "I love my mom. My mom loves me. We don't have an easy relationship," she told "20/20" in 2008. "I don't think we ever will, but I'd rather have a complicated, misunderstood relationship than have no relationship at all."
ABC is reportedly developing a daytime show for Spelling and a male co-host.
Luke Perry/Dylan McKay
Perry was actually 24 when he started playing the brooding millionaire's son Dylan McKay on "Beverly Hills, 90210," and he quickly became a teenage heartthrob.
The beau at the center of Kelly and Brenda's battles, Perry never seemed to be able to fully tear himself away from the glamorous TV show, and after taking a four-year hiatus in 1995, rejoined the cast until the series' end.
While on and off the show, he managed to make several films, including "Buffy The Vampire Slayer," "Normal Life" opposite Ashley Judd, and "The Fifth Element."
In the 2000s Perry, the 44-year-old divorced dad of two, had a slew of cameos. He parodied himself on "Family Guy," reunited with Garth on "What I Like About You," and sang a duet with Britney Spears at the 2001 MTV music awards. But one role he claims he'll never take is reprising Dylan on the new "90210."
"The difference between CW bringing something back and Aaron Spelling doing something is significant," he told a reporter. "And I cannot do it without Aaron."
Brian Austin Green/David Silver
Green landed his role on "Beverly Hills, 90210" after appearing on "Knots Landing" for three seasons. Though it took some time for the "90210" crew to warm up to the awkward, younger David Silver, the West Beverly Hills High School deejay soon became one of the cool kids.
In 1996, he tried a real-life career as a rapper, dropping his middle name and the album "One Stop Carnival." Following "90210," he appeared in the sitcom "Freddie," starring Freddie Prinze Jr., and "CSI Miami," before both were cancelled. He also had a recurring role in "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles."
But these days, Greene is known more for his personal life. After his breakup with Thiessen, he met actresss Vanessa Marcil, also on the set of "Beverly Hills, 90210," and they had a son, Kassius Lijah. In 2004, Green, now 36, began seeing Megan Fox, 24, and in June, after six years of dating and two engagements, the odd couple were married.
"They do genuinely care about each other," E! online gossip columnist Ted Casablanca told ABCNews.com. "It's not just for show. And she loves his kid [8-year-old Kassius]. She's crazy about that boy."
Green recently signed on for a multi-episode role on "Desperate Housewives."
