Actor Brian Austin Green describes the financial and clothes buying habits of his girlfriend, actress Tiffani-Amber Thiessen

Beverly Hills, 90210's resident music man Brian Austin Green and his girlfriend, actress Tiffani-Amber Thiessen (Saved by the Bell), have been solid for over a year, but the couple splits when it comes to shopping. "She buys clothes constantly," gripes Green, 20. "She's like, 'I can't pay my bills! But look at my new pants — they were only $7,000!' I refuse to go shopping with her." And though Green cops to owning "a lot of Armani," he favors the more economical style of the muscle-beach set. "I cut the sleeves off of my T-shirts," says Green. "Sometimes I wear the sleeve as a headband." His 90210 pal Jason Priestley also spends conservatively. Says Green: "Jay's constantly looking at stocks, 'Oh, cool, man — my Exxon went up.' He'll never be poor."
