The star of Beverly Hills 90210 offers a hilarious, insightful memoir about growing up on America’s favorite teen drama and her life after the show.
She was television's most famous virgin—and, as Aaron Spelling's daughter, arguably its most famous case of nepotism. Portraying Donna Martin on Beverly Hills, 90210, Tori Spelling became one of the most recognizable young actresses of her generation, with a not-so-private personal life every bit as fascinating as her character's exploits. Yet years later the name Tori Spelling too often closed—and sometimes slammed—the same doors it had opened.
sTORI telling is Tori's chance to finally tell her side of the tabloid-worthy life she's led, and she talks about it all: her decadent childhood birthday parties, her nose job, her fairy-tale wedding to the wrong man, her so-called feud with her mother. Tori has already revealed her flair for brilliant, self-effacing satire on her VH1 show So NoTORIous and Oxygen's Tori & Dean: Inn Love, but her memoir goes deeper, into the real life behind the rumors: her complicated relationship with her parents; her struggles as an actress after 90210; her accident-prone love life; and, ultimately, her quest to define herself on her own terms.
From her over-the-top first wedding to finding new love to her much-publicized—and misunderstood—"disinheritance," sTORI telling is a juicy, eye-opening, enthralling look at what it really means to be Tori Spelling.

Love this book. I can't wait to read the rest!!
Let me start by saying that I am the type of person that must finish a book if I start it. That being said, I literally could not stomach one more chapter of this self indulgent trash.
Spelling goes on and on (on more than one occasion) whining about how she grew up with money and how her father lavished her with gifts. Boo hoo. Then she goes on to talk about how some of Aaron Spelling’s shows were her idea and that she was responsible for most of the story lines on 90210, as well as showing the producers how to do their job. Several times she goes out of her way to bash Shannen Doherty and share private details of their time spent together, which is tasteless and unprofessional.
Bottom line, from the very first page it is clear that Ms. Spelling has a very high opinion of herself. I actually ended up tossing this book in the dumpster, as I could not stand having it waste space on my bookshelf.
Been wanting to read this for a while. Hard to put down. Can't wait to read Tori's other books. Please keep writing.
