Last year was a wild one for Tori Spelling. She was a tabloid target, with speculations about an eating disorder (which she firmly denies), a rocky marriage, and the on-again, off-again feud with her mom. But despite the negative press, she says, “I am so appreciative of everything that’s happened in my life.” And Spelling, 37, certainly isn’t slowing down. She’s bringing her proclivity for perfectionism to some new projects: In addition to Tori and Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood, she has a new show in the works, Tori and Dean: Weddings, a children’s fashion line called Little Maven—and now—her third book, Uncharted TerriTORI.
You’re one busy lady. When do you find time to write?
[Laughs] It’s hard. I write during naptime or at night once the kids go to bed. I have a really good memory and I remember every detail of every story, but after my second book when something funny or interesting would happen, I started writing it in my Blackberry.
The tone of Uncharted TerriTORI is different than your others. It seems that all of your success has also caused you quite a bit of stress. How do you decompress?
Watching my kids makes everything go away. Dean has hobbies and he always tells me, “You need a hobby.” And I’m like, “Why would I need to go somewhere and do a hobby when I could just sit and play with them?” That’s my decompress time.
