Read below to see how you can win an autographed copy of her new book, “Spelling It Like It Is” !
In the 90’s, America fell in love with Tori Spelling when she played Donna Martin on Beverly Hills 90210 (“Free Donna Martin” Anyone?!). Decades later, thousands of fans (including us) have fallen in love with her all over again in her new role as SUPERMOM and DIY-maven extraordinaire! As an actress, author of 3 NY Times bestselling memoirs – sTORI Telling, Mommywood, and Uncharted terriTORI, the star of her popular reality show Tori & Dean, wife to Dean McDermott (since 2006), and mother of four (yes 4!) beautiful kids ages six and under, Tori is notorious for intimately revealing her everyday antics onscreen and in print. We’re in awe of how she finds the time to do all this, keep it together, AND manage to update her blog EdiTORIal by Tori Spelling on a daily basis!
Tori is famously honest and self-deprecatingly funny when it comes to her personal life, and she’s the first to admit that the “reality” behind her popular television show, Tori & Dean, isn’t always real. She’s always Spelling It Like It Is … which is also the name of her fabulous new book, released October 22. In it, Tori shares personal stories with her usual humor, candor, and down-to-earth charm.
Tori writes openly about her biggest challenges: the terrifying health problems surrounding her high-risk pregnancy with youngest son Finn (now 11 mos.), her guilt over missing baby Hattie’s early months (now 18 mos.) because she was in the hospital on bed rest, her struggles (and failures) to live within her means after growing up in opulence, discovering how much she has in common with her late mega-producer father, Aaron Spelling, and falling in love with Dean all over again (hint: it didn’t happen at their vow renewal ceremony).
Life is never boring at Tori’s house, and we’re looking forward to watching and reading more about the multi-tasking Tori and her ever-entertaining, endlessly active family. Pick up Spelling It Like It Is, it’s sure to be a hit! And in the meantime, read our Q & A below to learn more details about Tori’s personal life! ENJOY…
