Tori Spelling was swamped by fans on Friday, who swarmed her Studio City, California home to buy items from her estate sale. Hordes of fans stared queuing as early as 5:30 a.m. for a chance to look through the star’s personal items at her highly-publicized garage sale. A handful of news crews, several print reporters, a news helicopter and Spelling’s own reality TV crew all showed up to cover the festivities.
The star, who is five months pregnant told People, “This is a little weird, but I’m okay.” Security guards were hired to control the crowd, who were required to sign release forms before they were allowed to enter the site. Items up for sale ranged from a used Sephora lip gloss for $1, her dog Mimi La Ru’s shampoo for $20, a used pair of Marc Jacobs designer round-toe shoes for $125 and a pair of white aged Grecian urns for $7,500.
Spelling sent a note to neighbors apologizing for any inconvenience, explaining she obtained the required permits and that it would take place Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The actress said she wanted to clean house as she enters a new phase in her life adding, “I had to break away from the past and be ready to start anew.”
