The reality behind reality TV! Hollywood's favorite mom-star tells it like it is.
Tori Spelling is the first to admit that the "reality" behind her popular television show, Tori & Dean, isn't always real. Not even Star magazine could invent the true chaos that happens behind the scenes. Luckily, Tori is famously honest and self-deprecatingly funny when it comes to her personal life - she's always "Spelling it like it is". Life is never boring at Tori's house, but since the release of her New York Times best-selling memoirs sTORI Telling, Mommywood, and Uncharted terriTORI, things have been especially unpredictable:
Finding out she was pregnant with her third baby after nearly vomiting live on the Home Shopping Network
Trying to hide her fourth pregnancy so soon after giving birth (as her stylist said, "Who would be that crazy?")
Being rescued from a paparazzo by a mom lynch mob
Stalking her celebrity neighbor
And then there was allowing cameras to film every personal detail of her life - from the most challenging time in her marriage to the only time in six years when she really felt as though those cameras invaded her privacy. Tori shares these stories and many more with the usual humor, candor, and down-to-earth charm that her fans love. She also writes openly about her biggest challenges: terrifying health problems; her guilt over missing baby Hattie's early months because she was in the hospital on bed rest; her struggles (and failures) to live within her means after growing up in opulence; the discovery that she has a lot in common with her late mega-producer father, Aaron Spelling; and how she fell in love with Dean all over again. (Hint: it didn't happen at their vow-renewal ceremony.)
After years of revealing her everyday antics on-screen, Tori's life is still full of surprises. Slowing down long enough to enjoy them? Now that's another sTORI.

Audio was nice
I loved the book although I am more conservative than she. I could have done without the f bomb she dropped. She has such a sweet voice. It didn't fit in the book. It is the reason I give it 4 stars. Hearing details about Finn was nice that she filled us in on so much. I think other moms can be helped by hearing what she went through.Bless her heart. I do pray if the new Dean 2014 rumors are true that they can work on it. No just for their kids. She is easy to listen to besides the cussing. I pray she finds her way. Looking forward to her new sitcom with Jenny!
