According to Ann Brenoff of the LA Times, actress Tori Spelling (daughter of Candy and the late producer Aaron Spelling), is selling her home in Westwood (aerial view above) because she purchased another one in Encino, CA. Not that Tori can’t afford multiple, million-dollar homes, but what’s surprising is the modest nature of this home, by Hollywood celebrity standards, at least.
