Spelling and her children's current temporary abode comes after they were spotted leaving a Los Angeles motel costing $100 a night, a living arrangement allegedly caused by a mold concern at her marital home.

In response to questions regarding her motel stay, Spelling defended her decision by referencing the safety of her kids. She passionately said, "Are you a parent? You know you would do whatever you can for your kids, right?"

Before moving into the motel, the actress openly discussed a mold issue at her home. She had informed her Instagram followers that her family had been consistently unwell due to it.

Spelling's decision to embrace a mobile lifestyle follows her estranged spouse McDermott's announcement, which he later deleted from Instagram on June 16, declaring the end of his 18-year marriage with Spelling.

Days after the deleted announcement, Spelling was captured in photos unloading suitcases and belongings at a friend's place, visibly distressed and accompanied by her five children. McDermott was also moving his possessions into storage.

Amid her marital problems, Spelling's close friends are reportedly deeply concerned about her well-being, describing her as "AWOL" following the separation from McDermott. Sources disclosed to the Daily Mail that Spelling has been neglecting calls and texts from her friends and even missing events related to her new home decor line promotion.

A source further explained that McDermott is troubled by his children staying in motels with Spelling, and although his stance on the RV setup isn't clear yet, he holds reservations about the current situation.

The insider said, "Dean is also taking up some issue with the kids being with Tori at these motels. He thinks that the kids should be at home and not motel-hopping with Tori. He just believes that this is not what is best for them at this time."
