Actress and former 90210 star Tori Spelling has embraced her role as mom so much that she’s just published a children’s book, Presenting Tallulah, and she also explains why her and husband Dean McDermott did go through a rocky point in their marriage.
Tori Spelling has been in the tabloids recently from drastic weight loss and being divorce bound. It was through her latest memoir uncharted terriTORI (Tori’s love for play on words ensues) that she addressed her tiny frame as an unfortunate result of swine flu, migraines and unrelated health issues that broken down her immune system. She claims she lost weight because of illness and not an eating disorder, which is a false accusation that really negatively and irresponsibly affects her stance as a celebrity role model.
Tori who stopped by The View today, also told the ladies that she and husband Dean admittedly did have troubles in their marriage because of lacking commuication and different perspectives on parenting. Dean’s passion for dirt bike racing also strained their relationship, especially when he was involved in a serious bike accident this past summer, suffering from a punctured and collapsed lung. Because of their commitment to one another and family, they’ve worked past their issues and renewed their vows with the support of her mom and brother. Tori and Dean both got married without friends and family present; therefore it was meaningful to have her family there who she’s reconciled with.
Besides the role of wife and mother, Tori’s also a reality TV star for Oxygen shows Tori & Dean, Home Sweet Hollywood and the new Tori & Dean: Weddings, a reality tv show in which the star couple will plan dream weddings. Her latest endeavor, however, has been adding to her collection of books. In addition to Mommywood, sTori Telling and uncharted terriTORI, Tori wrote children’s book Presenting Tallulah. She’s read Presenting Tallulah to her children, son Liam and daughter Stella, proudly explaining that Tallulah is loosely based off their very own mama.
