Couldn't put it down
I've always been a fan of 90210 and thought I'll give this book a whirl. I'm sure glad I did, I now see Tori Spelling in a totally different light. She?s not the rich, spoilt, brat people may think. She was raised by a Nanny whom she classes as her real mother & lived an almost ?half? life, always wanting to be ?normal?. She lets you in on everything, from her plastic surgery, losing her virginity, cheating on her first husband and the feud with her Mother. She leaves no stone unturned and you find out who the real ?Tori Spelling? is. A must for everybody young & old.

I recently finished Stori Telling by Tori Spelling. I find the title very cute and witty.
The book was written as if you are reading a letter from one of your girlfriends. It is very open, honest and very, very normal.
Tori openly and candidly tells her side of the tabloid stories. We have been hearing for ages, "you can't believe everything you hear" and Tori sets the record straight in a book that speaks from the heart, makes no apologies and by all accounts is her life as she saw it. She seems very down to earth, someone you would love to be friends with.
I love that she put herself out there, if she was wrong she states it. If someone did her wrong, she states that too. You've got to give the girl credit. Her name alone became a joke and Tori has managed to hold her head up and find her place in the world.
Tori lived her life as the Poor Little Rich Girl and as she states in the book, she was anything but. Yes, her family had money. We all heard about her father ordering up a white Christmas for her and her brother when they were kids but could we even picture that they were dressed in snow suits in over 80 degree weather? I didn't.
Tori tells of the elaborate halloween costumes that she was forced to wear. All she wanted was a plastic costume with the plastic mask.
She discusses her childhood, her time on 90210, relationship with cast members, and falling in love with her married co-star her now husband Dean, her relationship with her parents, how she found out her father died and about his will.
Her strained relationship with her parents is so sad to me and I am so happy that she has been able to find her soul mate and begin to heal her relationship with her mom by having babies of her own.
Since writing this book she has had her second baby a much dream for baby girl. Hopefully Tori will finally be able to really heal from the deep hurt that she suffered as a girl.
Imagine asking your mom if you are pretty and having her say, "When you get your nose job."

I love it!
The last time i read a book was probably in 5th grade and I am now out of high school and this is the first book I've actually been able to read! I love how she portrays the fact that rich kids just want to be normal and kids who aren't rich just want to be rich! She's very comedic throughout the book and it keeps me on my toes wanting to read more! Great job Tori!
Publishers Weekly, 2009-01-26 This bestselling memoir by former Beverly Hills 90210 star Spelling relates her much talked-about life, from the flamboyant childhood birthday parties to her over-the-top marriage to Mr. Wrong and subsequent marriage to Mr. Right. While many are familiar with the actress from her recent reality series, this book delves deeper into her personal life to reveal secrets the tabloids missed. No stranger to performing, Spelling reads with a commanding tone and manages to tell her story with care and attention to detail, which serves to draw even the most skeptical of listeners in for the duration. Spelling is quite likable and manages to shatter the image of the spoiled daughter of a Hollywood heavyweight as she connects with her audience on an entirely new level. A Simon Spotlight hardcover.
